Mirage Blog Tour & Giveaway

Hi everyone! Today we have the pleasure of hosting the Mirage Blog Tour. We have asked Violet McKenna to join us for a Q & A. What’s really awesome about her answers is that she, via the awesome Kristi Cook, is answering them using quotes from Mirage. It’s going to be pretty awesome. So without further ado, let’s get started.

Two Chicks: Hello, Violet! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your “abilities”?

Violet: “Visions. Generally bad stuff, and almost exclusively about people I’m close to.”

Two Chicks: If you could have any ability other than your own, what would it be?

Violet: “Not regular Cece. Astral Cece,” I explained. “You know, out for a virtual stroll.”

Seventeen-year-old Violet McKenna is back for her senior year at Winterhaven, and thrilled to be with Aidan after a long summer apart. But when a violent and disturbing vision begins to haunt her, Violet suddenly feels unsure of everything: who to trust, if she is in danger, and—worst of all—whether she and Aidan are really meant to be together.
Two Chicks: Now that you know what Aidan’s, um, condition is, how are you handling things?

Violet: I was a little bit scared, and I didn’t want him to know it. It was something I’d never get used to, his transformation. Still, I’d wanted him to bite me. I’d asked him to bite me. He’d refused, of course, but what if he hadn’t? What if he wasn’t always stronger than me?

Two Chicks: What do you REALLY think of the new guy, Tyler?

Violet: “Tyler Bennett, from Texas. Overconfident and very competitive. Oh, and he said he was telekinetic. Micro, actually.” I might have been in love with someone else, but I wasn’t blind. He was cute.

Two Chicks: What’s up with the new teacher, Dr. Byrne? Any thoughts on him?

Violet: He had that ‘just rolled out of bed’ look, like he’d forgotten to shave or brush his hair. Even so, he looked like he belonged on the cover of one of those outdoorsy catalogs, the ones that sold everything from cargo pants to canoes.

Two Chicks: Anything else you’d like us to know about you?

Violet: I’d never thought too much about friendship before I came to Winterhaven, mostly because I hadn’t had many friends. Not because I didn’t want to, but because I couldn’t. The more people I got close to, the more people I saw in my visions, which were harbingers of awful things to come. Besides, the more friends I had, the more people I had to hide my secret from, to pretend that I didn’t know about things before they happened. But now…now I had friends. Friends I didn’t have to pretend with.
