$25 Giveaway Interiew THE OFFERING by KIMBERLY DERTING @toobusyreading @kimberlyderting

offeringThe Offering by Kimberly Derting


 True love—and world war—is at stake in the conclusion to The Pledge trilogy, a dark and romantic blend of dystopia and fantasy. Charlie, otherwise known as Queen Charlaina of Ludania, has become comfortable as a leader and a ruler. She’s done admirable work to restore Ludania’s broken communications systems with other Queendoms, and she’s mastered the art of ignoring Sabara, the evil former queen whose Essence is alive within Charlie. Or so she thinks. When the negotiation of a peace agreement with the Queendom of Astonia goes awry, Charlie receives a brutal message that threatens Ludania, and it seems her only option is to sacrifice herself in exchange for Ludanian freedom. But things aren’t always as they seem. Charlie is walking into a trap—one set by Sabara, who is determined to reclaim the Queendoms at any cost.

EXCERPT
. The two guards dragged Xander toward a small, round opening in the stone floor, a hole through which blood could easily drain away to the sewers. They, along with two others who’d appeared, pinned him to the ground while he continued to writhe and scream. They waited until he was too weary to fight any longer. Until he had no other option but to accept this fate he’d been handed. Then the executioner raised his blade. Niko would have closed his eyes, if Elena wasn’t observing him so keenly. Unlike Niko, she had no interest in turning away. She seemed to relish the moment. When the axe fell and the sharp crack of metal struck stone beneath, he felt the slightest jerk from beside him. But when he turned his gaze on her, he saw that she was frowning at the hem of her gown, rather than at the grisly view at her feet. “Will you look at that,” she clucked, craning her neck to get a better look, and ignoring everything else going on around her. “He got blood on my new dress.” 
PLEASE WELCOME KIMBERLY TO BOOKHOUNDS YA
1.       Do you have a secret talent?
I’m actually pretty good at Skee-ball. I don’t mean to brag, but I’ve been north of 1000 tickets a time or two in my day! 

2.       Is there a song that really reminds you of your book?
 The Lion The Beast The Beat by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals. I love the lines, “It's time to meet your maker; Make the road your undertaker”

3.       What was the easiest thing about writing this book?
I actually loved writing this book, so I don’t know if any of it was particularly hard. But if I had to choose something that was easy, it was probably the ending since I’ve known for a very long time how I wanted it to wrap up. There was something very satisfying about finally getting to that point! 

4.       Is there a word you love to use?
 Is it bad to admit I love the F-word? I use it way more in real life way than in my books, though. I’m not sure if that makes it better or worse.

5.       Any real or imaginary pets? 

Just real ones—we have two cats, a hamster, and a horse named Maybe. To be honest, the hamster and the horse are my daughter’s pets ;)
