Giveaway~! Interview! with A R.. KAHLER author of THE IMMORTAL CIRCUS @ARKahler


1.      What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child?
It was a Dr. Seuss book. I think it was THE FOOT BOOK or maybe HOP ON POP or FOX IN SOCKS. Kind of hard to remember. But I remember reading it at home and getting so excited about reading it on my own that I ran to my grandma's and read it to her. About a dozen times. That was definitely the start to my love of telling stories.

2.      What are you reading right now?
A mix of things. I'm reading THE RAVEN BOYS by Maggie Stiefvater, THE NAME OF THE WIND by Patrick Rothfuss, and WHEN THINGS FALL APART by Pema Chodron.

3.      How does your garden grow?
I can't tell if this is asking about a real garden or the line from Antonio Machado's poem “The Wind, One Brilliant Day” (“What have you done with the garden entrusted to you?”). I'll presume both, and thus say that, literally and metaphorically, it is still very much in the works. One day it will be filled with herbs and vegetables. Right now, we're sowing the seeds. And I'm very, very grateful for the garden I've been given and have worked so hard to maintain.

4.      What is the last thing you Googled?
You are really lucky I Googled Dr. Seuss book titles, because last night my roommates and I were discussing how everything—yes, everything—had been turned into a fetish. (Hey, you asked.)

5.      What makes you cringe?
The aforementioned Google search? In all honesty: rudeness, dishonesty, and people who spend so much time staring at their (insert handheld smart device here) they don't see anything unfolding in the world around them.

About the Book
Publisher: 47North
Publication dates: Serial eBook - December 4, 2012; In Print - January 29, 2013
Formats: Kindle eBook
Murdered contortionists aren’t exactly what Vivienne signed up for when she ran away to join the circus. But like most things under the big top, nothing is what it seems. With a past she can't quite remember, Vivienne finds that running away forever might not be as appealing as it once sounded—especially not when she realizes the devilishly attractive ringleader Mab is the Faerie Queen of legend…and that she and the rest of the troupe are locked in an age-old rivalry between the otherworldly Courts.

Aided by her friends Kingston—a feisty stage magician whose magic is quickly stealing her heart—and his smart-ass assistant Melody, Vivienne finds herself racing against the clock to discover the culprit behind a series of deaths that should be impossible. However, the answer she seeks might reveal more about her own bloody past—and future—than she bargains for.

The show's just beginning.

About the Author
About A.R. Kahler
Most little boys dream of running away to join the circus.
Alex didn't just dream it: he did it. But then, he rarely lets a good dream pass him by.
In the past six years he's toured and trained across America and Europe. He's performed in Amsterdam, taught trapeze in Madrid, studied in Glasgow and even had a stint as assistant to Holly Black and Cassandra Clare in New England. He's constantly on the lookout for new places to explore and new worlds to invent. He's a Sagittarius fueled by full moons and espresso. The way to his heart is a latte and fan art. Just for the record.
THE IMMORTAL CIRCUS is his first New Adult novel, and is being released exclusively through the Amazon Kindle e-Serials program by 47North. It will be available in print and audio when the episodes are complete.
MARTYR the first book in his post-apocalyptic fantasy, will be published by Spencer Hill Press in October 2014.
