United States citizens have lost their rights and their ability to fight back. The Army of the American Dynasty makes sure of that. Citizens are told what to do and where to live. Reilly Grant is one of the lucky ones. She was given a coveted position in the Army even though she secretly did not buy into their ideals. Taking a huge risk, she defects and joins a band of rebels determined to overthrow Emperor Ronson. But even rebels can have hidden agendas. Who can Reilly trust? The rebels whose cause she believes in or the government that wants her back?

Crazy/Awkward Interview with Heather Jacobs
*gestures at the empty seat beside her* Hi, Heather! I’m SO glad you were willing to sarcrif…er…visit me. *nervous laugh* Have a seat. Want a piece of fancy chocolate or cheese? *eyes carefully to see which is picked*
Why thank you! Can I have both? It’s hard to choose between fancy chocolate and cheese. I grew up in Wisconsin. Home of the best cheese. So to turn down the cheese would be like turning away a family member, but chocolate…mmm…it’s like an old friend I never grow tired of visiting with. So both. I must have both.
Wise choice. I can rarely pick just one myself. I hear you’ve got a sweet book coming out in April. All about dictators and stuff. I gotta ask, are there any hot guys in it? *gets a glassy-eyed stare*
What’s a revolution without some hot guys? My narrator is involved with a few of them. In fact I’m partial to her main love interest Stas, but you’ll never get me to admit it. What’s not to love about the guy though? He’s tall, dark, handsome, and wears a uniform. You can’t deny a man in a uniform. And then there’s Hex the bad boy rebel leader who is so easy to fall in love with. The two are really drool worthy. Hell even some of the villains are good looking.
So, this dictator guy, is he hot? Because I have a little soft spot for evil hotties.
Emperor Patrick Ronson is a silver fox. He’s your typical career politician so there is that certain charm to him. Ronson has a penchant for power. Anyone who can manage a coup that ends democracy and ushers in tyranny has my attention.
This dictator thing leads me nicely into my first question:
Q: You’re declared monarch of a small population of creatures that have recently gained sentience, what creature is it? Bonus: what is your first act as monarch?
A: Yay! I get to be Queen. 🙂 Hmmm…a creature. Let’s call my new lovelies the Dramora. They’re a wolf like creature that feeds entirely on drama. That means my first act as Queen shall be to let them loose on the world to enjoy a rather juicy feeding frenzy. Let’s rid the world of the trivial drama, shall we?
Q: How do you feel about lemurs?
A: I could take ‘em or leave ‘em. They’re adorable in their own little way, but there is trouble brewing behind those eyes of theirs.
Q: What is the creepiest question you’ve ever wanted to ask someone? (Extra points if you tell us who you wanted to ask)
A: Hmmm. Creepiest question. I know this is only our first date, but will you marry me? That would be creepy to me and I don’t think I’ll divulge who I might say that too. They may or may not be a celebrity. LOL.
Q: You have to be attacked by something, you hope it’s a) a lemming b) a lemon c) a *says in a spooky voice* LEPRECHAUN d) lava lamp
A: Well definitely not the lava lamp. Those things are creepy. I’m going to say C) Leprechaun because let’s face it…I’m scrappy. I’m going to fight to win and when I do I want that pot of gold.
Q: Where would you bury the hatchet?
A: I don’t. That crap can get found. If I’ve learned anything from Breaking Bad I’m stealing some acid and destroying it. Then again I’d probably get caught trying to steal the acid and if I purchased it I’d be leaving a paper trail. I need more time to think about this one.
Q: MG says there’s lots of freaky potato chips on the market. What is your favorite kind? Bonus if it’s “freaky”. Extra points if it’s “SUPA-freaky”.
A: No freaky chips for me. Just cracked pepper or sea salt or a combination of the two. I also adore BBQ. No chicken or waffles for me. I’ve always wanted to try the Japanese Shrimp Pringles just to say I have. LOL.
Q: Fill in the blank: The _______ made me do it.
A: Voices. As cliche as it may be it’s usually their fault.
