Q&A with author Molly Harper and GIVEAWAY

Today we have Molly Harper, author of the Jane Jameson series and her latest HOW TO FLIRT WITH A NAKED WEREWOLF is coming out in stores February 22 (tomorrow!). Please join us in welcoming her.

sselforsHi Molly! Thank you for stopping by our blog. Please tell us about yourself in 140 characters (like on Twitter).
Kentucky-born former newspaper reporter turned novelist, married to high school sweetheart, two kids/potential evil geniuses. Still in mourning for Buffy.

What are three frivolous things you cannot live without when you're writing?
-Coca-Cola, I need caffeine for those late nights.
-Melba Toast Rounds, Sea Salt-flavored. It feels healthier than eating chips.
-Something funny on TV like The Office or Glee. Or CSI: NY, for some reason, Gary Sinise being all science-y gets me going.

Your top three werewolf character crushes.
-Joe Manganiello, Alcide from True Blood. Holy Scruffy Hotness, Batman! I always thought of that character as sort of weak in the books, what with his inability to stand up to Debbie Pelt. But Manganiello helped humanize him and make his struggle more sympathetic. And hot. Really, really hot.
-James Spader in Wolf. OK, yeah, he was evil. But he was intriguing and evil.
-Seth Green as Oz on Buffy. I wouldn't really want to date him. I would just want to hang out with him and hear him quip.

sselfors Your favorite scene to write from HOW TO FLIRT WITH A NAKED WEREWOLF?
I've said before that the scene in which Mo helps Cooper recover from having the bear-trap on his ankle was hard to write. I was trying to balance this revelation that Cooper’s a werewolf with humor and Mo’s natural disbelief, not to mention the romantic chemistry. When I sent it to my agent and she wrote back, “Oh, my Gosh, you’ve made Cooper so hot!” And I’ve never had that reaction from her before, so I knew I had something good going. But I think my favorite scene was their first love scene. It’s very intense, aggressive and a lot of clothing gets destroyed. It's definitely a new direction for me.

What songs would be in the HOW TO FLIRT WITH A NAKED WEREWOLF soundtrack?
You're in luck! I posted a whole playlist of songs I listened to while writing the book. I'm trying to do this for all of my books. You can find it at http://singleundeadfemale.blogspot.com/2011/01/playlist-for-how-to-flirt-with-naked.html
Some of the music is a little grandiose, I but was writing about Alaska, a place that's open and grand and sort of dramatic. Some of my favorites from the list are Strange and Beautiful - Aqualung, Heartless - The Fray (Swing House Sessions), Black Milk - Massive Attack, Lacrymosa - Evanescence, and Apologize - Silverstein.

What's next after HOW TO FLIRT WITH A NAKED WEREWOLF? Do you have any current writing projects?
The sequel, THE ART OF SEDUCING A NAKED WEREWOLF comes out on March 29. Then there's the release of the fourth book in the Jane Jameson series, which I hope will be some time later this year. And I'm writing two "spinoff" books of the Half-Moon Hollow setting, involving people who are connected to Jane.
