An author guest blog with Chloe Neill




Today I have the pleasure of hosting a guest blog with Chloe Neill, author of FIRESPELL. Chloe is also the author of the Chicagoland vampires and she is giving us a holiday treat.

A CHICAGOLAND CHRISTMAS

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Merit, Mallory, Jeff and Ethan, some of the main cast of characters in
my CHICAGOLAND VAMPIRES series, as they celebrated the holidays. I asked a few questions and got a few answers,
which I thought I'd share with you!

Chloe: Good evening, everyone. How are things?

Jeff: *glancing at Merit* Awesome.

Merit: *rolling her eyes* Great. Thanks, Chloe.

Ethan: *also rolling his eyes*

Mallory: *nibbling on the end of a peppermint stick* Things are fabu.

Chloe: Great. Let's start off with your holiday plans. Anything big on the agenda?

Merit: Mallory and I will be having dinner with my grandfather.

Mallory: Translation, Merit will be eating most of the meatloaf.

Merit: Hey, you've had my grandfather's meatloaf. You know how good it is.

Mallory: True. It is pretty good. God's own meatloaf, you might say.

Jeff: *nudging Merit with a small, red box* I have something for you.

Merit: *taking box with quizzical expression* What's this?

Jeff: Your Christmas present. Or holiday present. Or whatever vampires celebrate. Open it.

Merit: *opening the box and pulling out a small bit of silk lingerie* Aw, Jeff. You shouldn't have. Really. And I mean
that.

Mallory: Jeff, Jeff, Jeff. What's on your Christmas agenda?

Jeff: I'll be hanging out with the fam. Dinner at Grammy Christopher's, brunch at Grandpa Sherman's. Good times.

Chloe: That's great. I'm glad you're able to share time with friends and family. Any special items on your Christmas
wish list?

Merit: I've got tons of books on my Amazon wish list. *nudging Mallory* Hint, hint.

Mallory: Your lump of coal is already in your stocking. Next!

Jeff: Is 'Merit' an acceptable answer? Nah, seriously, there are a couple of terabyte externals I've been looking at, and I
wouldn't mind having a DSI. Texts and RPG in a single device? Yes, please.

Mallory: I'd like world peace. And maybe an attitude adjustment for my boyfriend.

Merit: Aw, you love him just the way he is.

Mallory: Yeah, I guess. But if he suddenly started bowing down to me, painting my toes and calling me 'goddess,' I
wouldn't complain.

Chloe: Well, thanks for that insight, Mal. How about any final holiday wishes?

Mallory: *poking Merit with a finger* I already called 'world peace.' So you can't say that.

Merit: How about Celina behind bars? Or turned to a pile of glittery ashes?

Mallory: Oh, nice one.

Jeff: I hope all my friends and family have a healthy, safe, and fun holidays.

Mallory: You really are a sweetie, you know that?

Jeff: *Blushing* Would you like to find out how sweet---

Chloe: *clamping hand over Jeff's mouth* And that's all we have time for right now. Thanks for dropping by, and a
Happy New Year to all!

Someone needs to check on Ethan. I think he rolled his eyes too far back and passed out.

I agree with Devi. He turned to stone?

OMG I read this while I had a break in studying, and it gave me a full-hearted laugh that I missed since the start of exam period. Thanks Chloe

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
