Author Q&A + Giveaway: Jodi Meadows

Hi everyone!

Today, we have a very exciting interview with Jodi Meadows, the author of the 'Incarnate' trilogy! So when I heard that Jodi would be open to doing an author Q&A, my inner fangirl screamed. I could not believe what happened. So then I spent some time typing and coming up with a few questions to ask her, and here it is! Jodi is an amazing and hilarious woman.




Q: Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

A: I like yarn, ferrets, books, cookies, and unicorns. I feel like that says quite a lot about me, but just in case, here's my official author bio:

Jodi Meadows lives and writes in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia, with her husband, a Kippy*, and an alarming number of ferrets. She is a confessed book addict, and has wanted to be a writer ever since she decided against becoming an astronaut. She is the author of the INCARNATE Trilogy and the forthcoming ORPHAN QUEEN Duology (HarperCollins/Katherine Tegen). Visit her at www.jodimeadows.com

*A Kippy is a cat.

Q: How did you get inspired to write the Incarnate Trilogy?

A: It's a long story that involves time travel, ninjas, ancient daggers, and unicorns. Bad things happen to the unicorns. Sorry.

Q: When did you start writing? Why did you decided to become an author?


A: I knew I wanted to be an author when I was eleven years old. That was when I realized that books didn't just magically appear on bookshelves. Someone had to write them. A person. And it was a legitimate job.

I wanted it to be my job.

That was when I started writing, too, but only off and on. I didn't start writing full time until 20003.

Q: Tell us 5 completely off the charts random facts about you.


1. My ferrets' names are Todd, Hiro, and Katniss.
2. I like coffee.
3. I knit a stuffed hedgehog and it sits on my desk.
4. I keep a glittery butterfly mask on my desk, too. For "emergencies."
5. Once I went to the store and bought a bunch of pretty paper boxes because I was sad. There were all different sizes. My husband asked if I was going to put all the boxes inside one another (like nesting dolls), and put my feelings in the tiniest, innermost box. So I did. Now I'm always happy.

Q: Is there going to be a movie for Incarnate? If so, who's your dream Sam?

A: It's really unlikely that there will be a movie unless Incarnate suddenly becomes a mega bestseller. I'm not really good at faces, anyway, so I don't have a dream cast.

Q: If one of your pets were in danger, who would you save first? Your ferret or your cat?

A: *narrows eyes* My pets will never be in danger. Do you plan on putting them in some kind of danger?

Q: Do you have a must read book you recommend to your fans?

A: I have a lot of book recommendations for my readers. You can find them on my website here: http://www.jodimeadows.com/?page_id=225

Q: Favourite Genre to read?

Speculative fiction.

Q: Which fictional character are you absolutely IN LOVE with? Is he a bad boy or a good guy? Tell us about him!

A: I have a few book boyfriends. Logan, from CJ Redwine's DEFIANCE; Titus, from Sherry Thomas's THE BURNING SKY, and Hector, from Rae Carson's THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS.

I'd tell you about them, but really, I think you should just go read the books for yourself. They're wonderful boys.

This or That:

Q: Peanut Butter or Jelly?

A: Peanut butter.

Q: Big Mac or Rice?

A: Rice.

Q: Morning or Night person?

A: Night.

Q: Truth or Dare?

A: Truth.

Q: Stay in or Go out?

A: Stay in.
