6 Questions with Shiloh Walker

And so, we have the Brat on the blog! Thank goodness she didn’t bring her bratlets along with her, or it would be the end of the world (at least for this wee blog). 

Contest deets at the end of the post. 😉

1. On a scale of one to ten, rank your current level of insanity–where ten is belongs-in-lunatic-asylum insane–and tell us why.

Hmmmmm…. I’d say a seven. Not quite normal but not quite dangerous, unless I get ticked off and then hide your car keys. And I don’t know why-do crazy people ever really know why they are crazy? ;o)

2. Are you really THAT fearsome? Anya Bast doesn’t dare post a pic of you because she says you’ll skin her alive if she does.

When it comes to pics? Oh yes. *G* Anya knows if I let her take a picture, she has to swear it to secrecy. I know where she lives. I know what sugar does to gas tanks. (fyi, for those who don’t know me…. I’m mostly kidding…mostly… ;op)

3. How did you get that bratty reputation of yours? *ggg*

Doesn’t the above answer give you a bit of an idea?

4. Two years from your first sale, you quit your dayjob. It’s been three years now that you’ve been a full-time writer. Looking back, would you have delayed dropping your dayjob? Why, or why not?

Nope. Wouldn’t change it. I got out of nursing because I was getting burned out and I knew there may come a time when I had to work outside of writing. When and if that happens, I don’t want to go back to a job I hate.

5. I’ve done my research, so I won’t ask who your favorite authors are. Instead, I want to know what your platform would be if you were running for President of the SL Viehl/Lynn Viehl/Paperback Writer Fan Club?

Uhhhh….hmmmmm….. I don’t think anybody, including SL Viehl, would want me for a president of any organization. I’m a bit too hotheaded for that. Can I decline the nomination for presidencies… of any kind?

(moi says “No, you can’t!” ) 

6. The Hunters: Declan and Tori turned me into a fan of yours. Because of that, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to read I’ll Be Hunting You. Was it an especially difficult book to write? And what have readers said about it?

Actually, it wasn’t hard at all. And go ahead and read it, May… it’s a romance. It ends happy. And while I won’t give away spoilers…can you see Tori living happily ever after with anybody BUT Declan?

Readers have enjoyed it. Most of them claim that they wanted to strangle me…until they finished the book. Then they were glad they read it. Come on, May… I dare you… if you read it and honestly don’t like it, I’ll send you a free ebook…your choice from my ebook backlist. (But this isn’t a contest…. it’s for May only)

Shiloh Walker blogs by herself, with the Vamps & Scamps and is also part of After Midnight Fantasies.

She has just released Always Yours from Samhain Publishing and One Night With You from Ellora’s Cave. Hunter’s Salvation will be in a bookstore near you in the next few days. For The Love Of Jazz will be available later in the year.
Shiloh’s giving away an ebook from her backlist each TWO winners, soooooooo comment! Rate Shiloh’s Brattiness (I think it’s a 10 out of 10)! Or tell us how much you love so-and-so from a Shiloh book! In other words, Say Something to Shiloh. 😉

    I’d like to comment that Hunter’s Salvation rocks. And that’s coming from someone who never read this series previously. That’s all. Back to your regularly scheduled programs. 😀

    I didn’t know For the Love of Jazz was being expanded. Cool! I loved it. It was very good. I love the Hunters series too! Can’t wait to read Hunter’s Salvation!

    HI Shiloh!

    Love the Hunters series, I was so excited after reading Hunters Heart and Soul. One word MALACHI.

    Ok enough gushing I really want to tell May that she should read I’ll Be Hunting You. Like you I was introduced to Shiloh by her Hunters series and while Malachi is my favorite I of course have a soft spot for Tori and Declan.
    I won’t lie to you, I spent the majority of the book in tears. I meann great big gulping, make my chest hurt tears, but OMG the end of the BOOK.

    If you ever doubted Shiloh Walker can write than this is the book to make you see different. By the end I was weeping with joy and jumping up and down.

    So I say go for it, I can guarantee you will not regret it.

    Oh and I agree Shi gets a 10 out of 10 for bratiness. LOL

    Thanks for the revealing interview! I have one of Shiloh’s books on top of of my TBR pile. Looking forward to reading it especially after visiting this blog.

    Oh and I agree Shi gets a 10 out of 10 for bratiness. LOL

    Flattery will get you everywhere. ;o)

    May, did you ever take me up on that bet?

    Glad you all enjoyed Hunter’s Salvation. Sue, Stephanie, if you do pick something up, I hope you enjoy it.

    Heh. I’m seeing Shi today, in fact.

    I’m leaving my digital camera at home. *values skin muchly*

  8. July 1, 2007 at 3:13 pm

    Shi and Jenn, not yet. I’m working on it. You’ll hear from me if I ever screw up the courage to read it. LOL.

    Anya, Spoilsport!

    hmmmm..can’t decide on the bratiness. I think a wee big of that is true. Maybe more than a wee bit. lol I’ll say 8 out of 10. It does, though, make her all the more fun to be around. Ever since I read Her Best Friend’s Lover a long time ago, I’ve been a big fan!

  10. July 2, 2007 at 2:43 am

    Don’t enter me *snerk*, but I just had to say that Shi is the Queen Brat, but we love her for it.

  11. July 2, 2007 at 2:44 am

    I’ll have you know I’m a serious brat. I take it very very seriously, Kim.

    :OP Glad you liked Lover.

    And May, Anya isn’t a spoilsport…. she is just into self preservation. 😛

    How about if I double dog dare you to read the book, May? I’ll even send you a download.

  12. July 2, 2007 at 2:46 am

    Oh, sniffle.. Jaynie… you’re such a sweetheart and you say the nicest things. sniffle.

  13. July 2, 2007 at 5:06 am

    You know, if you google Shiloh Walker in images, there are a couple posted on the intarweb. Just sayin’.

  14. July 2, 2007 at 12:41 pm

    Annie… that was mean. sigh….

  15. July 2, 2007 at 1:45 pm

    I gotta say, Shi, there are actually authors out there who aren’t afraid of your wrath.

    Annie, thanks!

  16. July 2, 2007 at 3:35 pm

    well, geez, go and ruin my illusions, May.

    Oh well. At least I can pretend some people live in fear. 😛

  17. July 2, 2007 at 3:40 pm

    Pretend is never as fun as reality.

    Great interview! I did not know Shiloh was a nurse. I have to say I am glad Shiloh is writing full-time now. The sooner I can get my greedy little hands on her books the better. 🙂

  19. July 4, 2007 at 3:47 pm

    I am a fan of Hunter series but I also like your other books, just have soft spot for those paranormal. I love Mal, cannot imagine anyone not loving Mal. Also love his story but didnot it too short. I want my time with him a little bit more.

    I’m absolutely in love with the hunters series. As soon as I buy a new one I can’t put it down. Malachi and Kelsey are my favorite couple. I can’t wait to buy my next book.
