Some of you have probably heard how stressful things get for an author when they are getting ready for a new release. Shiloh Walker’s latest book STOLEN is due out… and, well. She didn’t handle the stress well this time. She went on a crime spree*…she hit fellow authors Thea Harrison, Vivian Arend, Larissa Ione, Carolyn Crane and Devon Monk. She held them up and swiped secrets and goodies. She keeps the secrets, but you get the goodies. Well, maybe a few secrets will slip out.
*This is all very tongue in cheek. Shiloh didn’t really snap. Well. Maybe she did. But no theft, larceny or other illegal activities were involved. No authors were harmed. Even though she’s still trying to figure out how to steal a couple of characters.
Continuing on my life of crime…if you want to catch up with where I’ve been, please visit Shiloh’s site.
Shiloh: Today, I’ll tell you about what I’ll swiped from Vivian and the secrets I managed to get from her…now I got some fun secrets, but those secrets, she made me keep mum on (remember, we all made a deal) and the stuff I managed to figure out on my own to share with everybody…well, her characters wouldn’t steal from anybody so I had to swipe two prizes to make up for it. I couldn’t get any dirty laundry on them.
Vivian: Gabe and Allison might be too honest for their own good. I can’t see them stealing anything. Even the deception they pull in their book pushes their moral limits. I can see Gabe finding a wallet loaded with money and going out of his way to return it, no matter how much inconvenience it causes him. He’s not called the Coleman Guardian Angel for nothing! (Oh, come on…nothing????) 😛
Shiloh: If you had to go into hiding, where you go and what would you take?
Vivian: I’d load up the kayak and disappear along the Pacific Coast and the Inside Passage. Not only would the maze of islands make a great place to hide, there’s tons to eat and gorgeous sunsets every night. I would have to take a solar charger to keep my ereader going, though. An addiction to reading doesn’t stop just because you’re on the run for your life! (I’m making a mental note of this, because if people decide to come after me for the spree I went on…I need a place to hide.)
Shiloh: Do you have any favorite books that feature heists or thieves?
Vivian: Oceans 11 and 13. Although I cringe for the poor fellow who gets the Susan B Anthony. $11 million still doesn’t seem like enough to make up for all his pain.
