Hello! It’s me, Jaunty P. Quills, Porcupine Extraordinaire. I’m here with a stash of pine nuts and my latest author interview. Welcome to the Jaunty Quills Shana Galen!
Shana: Jaunty, this is my blog.
Jaunty: So tell us about your new book, If You Give a Porcupine a Pine Nut.
Shana: Jaunty, you know that’s not the title. It’s If You Give a Rake a Ruby.
Jaunty: That makes no sense. Why would a yard implement want a ruby? You can’t eat rubies. Can you?
Shana: Jaunty, the book is about a courtesan and a spy. Fallon is the Marchioness of Mystery, and she wants to keep her past a mystery. Warrick is under threat of assassination, and Fallon holds the key to finding the hired assassin. She and Warrick meet when she finds him in her bed. She kicks him out, but he blackmails her into helping him.
Jaunty: And then they find the hidden pine nut treasure?
Shana: No. Then they have to delve into London’s underworld.
Jaunty: And that’s where the pine nuts are!
Shana: No. There aren’t any pine nuts in this book. Just rubies.
Jaunty: And the rubies taste like pine nuts!
Shana: No, Jaunty. There are no pine nuts and no porcupines in this book.
Jaunty: Shana, you know Kristan is my favorite, right? Are you even trying to compete?
Jaunty: I don’t believe you. I’ve seen the cover of your book.
Jaunty: There’s a porcupine on the cover! Thank you, Shana!
Shana: No problem, Jaunty. Readers, I have no idea what Jaunty is talking about, but as a thanks for reading this interview, I’m giving one person who comments a copy of If You Give a Rake a Ruby. Let me know your favorite color on the cover of romance novels.
