Gretchen McNeil Talks TEN

Okay, so today we've got the fantabulous Gretchen McNeil on the blog! She's a super-talented author, and one of my bacon sisters. Don't worry if you don't know what that means. Just read the answer to my last question.

But first, let's talk TEN.


About THE BOOK:
The Twitter version: tell us about your book in 140 characters or less:
Ten teens trapped on an island with a serial killer. Mayhem ensues. (BRILLIANT.)


About THE AUTHOR:
Have you always wanted to be a writer?
Nope. Growing up I wanted to be an opera singer. I pursued that career for many years – including a BA and a MM degree – but it didn't work out. I started writing about five years ago.

What made you decide to go that “extra step” and seek publication?
Well, I'd written a novel that I thought was awesome (it wasn't) and I thought, "Why else would I be writing if not for publication?"

Quick! You’ve been chosen to go on Survivor. What luxury item do you take?
Stilettos. (Ah, yes. Gretchen is the shoe lover I wish I could be.)

And the most important of all: bacon or chocolate?
Elana, you know this answer to the question is ALWAYS bacon. (See? Bacon sisters!)

You need to get this book! Don't believe me? Perhaps you'll believe CHRISTOPHER PIKE???

"TEN is a real page turner! Gretchen McNeil knows how to plot a thriller: Her setup is flawless and the suspense kept me on the edge of my seat." – Christopher Pike, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the THIRST series and REMEMBER ME

So get TEN today. You won't be sorry.

Oh wow! This sound so GOOD!!! It's going on my TBR list! Love the cover too.

And sweet you wanted to be an opera singer. Good combo :-)

Cherie Reich said...

That's so cool you used to sing opera! I started to major in vocal performance to be an opera singer and then switch majors when I realized it was a five-year program.

And I can't wait to read TEN! It's on my Kindle ready to go as my Halloween-related read. :)

Sounds like a suspenseful book! I love the cover and the way the title stretches out.
