Hey Guys! How are you all doing this lovely Tuesday? I am so happy to have here today one of my favorite new authors. Chloe Neill was actually the first author I ever emailed. I ran into her first book, Some Girls Bite, right when it was released and loved it. I emailed her at the time just to say how much I loved it, I didn’t even write reviews back then. I’m sure Chloe
has no idea who I am remembers me fondly =)
Chloe is here today for a great interview and giveaway, so let’s get to it…
