As part of the A Trace of Moonlight Blog Tour, I’m excited to welcome Allison Pang to SWR! Allison is the author of the Abby Sinclair series, a wonderful world of magic, dreams, romance, bacon, and a horny unicorn. Please welcome Allison to the blog and don’t forget to enter the giveaway below!
Sure! Abby is basically a “normal” girl, thrust into a series of events that are anything but. After a car accident robs her of dream of becoming a ballerina, Abby ends up working at a used bookstore…for a Faery princess. Before long, she’s swept away into a world of magic, sexy daemons, angels, fae and one tiny perverted unicorn.
SWR: What can longtime fans look forward to in A Trace of Moonlight, the latest book in the series?
Well, this book closes the overall story arc that ran in the last two books. We’ll see Abby get a chance to confront Maurice once and for all…and we’ll get the answers to some rather pressing questions, including who Abby ends up with. 😉
SWR: The world-building is incredible. How did you go about creating this world in terms of research and do you have any secrets to keeping the rules straight over the course of three books?
I pretty much just made it up as I went. The mythology is loosely based off the True Thomas poem Thomas the Rhymer, so the basis is Celtic, but otherwise, there isn’t really any secret. I don’t even keep a binder or anything. (Though I might have to start if I write any more. LOL)
There’s a short story prequel of sorts involving Melanie and how she got her violin coming out in the Carniepunk anthology next August. Otherwise, I’d very much like to continue writing in this world, but we’ll have to wait and see.
SWR: Who would be in your dream cast for Abby Sinclair the HBO series or feature film?
Gah – I have no idea. I’ve gotten asked that a lot over the last few years and my answers change every time. I have a hard time with this question because no one ever really looks like how I picture them in my head. That’s probably a really lame answer. Sorry. >_< (I’ve had a number of people suggest Tyler Hoechlin as Brystion though – and I can dig that rather nicely.)
SWR: What’s the last book you read that you would recommend?
I’m reading The Palace Job by Patrick Weekes right now – it’s a lot of fun.
SWR: What are some of your upcoming projects?
Well, I have an online graphic novel called Fox & Willow (you can find it at http://www.sadsausagedogs.com) that is updated every Monday and Wednesday. It’s free – and a fun story about a girl and her fox, with each chapter loosely based on a fairy tale. I’ve also got a story coming out in an upcoming issue of Womanthology: Space comic.
Otherwise, I am writing something new – more of a straight fantasy book, with a twist of Steampunk.
SWR: I’m a big fan of Game of Thrones where every family has a motto – the Starks have “Winter is coming” and the Lannisters have “Hear me roar!” What is the Allison Pang motto?
LOL. Eat all the bacon?
SWR: And, finally, I’ve heard you’re a gamer. I’m a reformed Bethesda Softworks groupie but I still can’t wait until I can get my hands on Dishonored. What is your latest gaming obsession?
I’m actually playing Dishonored right now! It’s a great game – very smooth gameplay and just a lot of fun overall. I love the atmosphere.
SWR: Thanks so much for the interview Allison!
Thanks for having me! 😀
Here’s your chance to win a print copy of the latest Abby Sinclair release, the conclusion to what is a fantastic series!
