A character interview with Seb!

In the second stop of my blog tour, the awesome Rachel Morgan is interviewing The Big Smoke‘s main male character, Seb.

Read the rest of the interview at Rachel’s blog. Rachel really makes Seb squirm!

And don’t forget to take part in The Year I Turned 18 Blogfest by the end of the week. A $20 Amazon is up for grabs! So far a grand total of ONE person has participated, so if you give it a crack the odds of winning the moolah are pretty high!
