Cool Canucks, Hot Contemporaries Blog Tour
November 12-23, 2012, join Elle Kennedy and Vivian Arend as we share information about our upcoming Samhain releases- Viv’s ROCKY MOUNTAIN ANGEL (Six Pack Ranch #4) and GETTING HOTTER (Out Of Uniform #8)
What’s it about?
Well, how about we BOTH tell you?
Elle: Can we PLEASE talk about how we “met”?
Viv: lmao. Way to start off topic. You really want people to know? You stalker
Elle: lol. Not the details! Just that I emailed you because you were Canadian and I thought we would hit it off. And we did.
Viv: I’m looking at my Samhain bookshelf…
Elle: Is that code for something?
Viv: You were one of the first Samhain authors I read. Out of Uniform…
Elle: Wow! Really? That’s pretty awesome. You can thank being Canadian as why I read Rocky Mountain Heat.I was browsing for books with Canadian settings because my friend commented about how hardly any novels use them
Viv: too funny. And almost all my books are Canadian set
Elle: Your name came up a lot
Viv: Well…there’s so much Canada to USE as a setting
Elle: I know. The series I’m plotting out now is set in Canada. FINALLY!
Viv: Yeah!!!! *digresses into Barenaked Ladies songs* We’ve got…rocks and trees and trees and rocks and…
Elle: and snow and lakes!
Viv: okay, so for the next couple weeks we’re going to share snippets from Getting Hotter and Rocky Mountain Angel, and tease people
Elle: and showcase our awesomely Canadian sense of humour
Viv: right. we get to ramble…like that’s hard…
Elle: Notice I used the “u” in humour?
Viv: lol. very colourful addition. Do you think we need to explain the use of Duct Tape?
Elle: OK, I’m dumb. Do Americans not use duct tape? (this is a serious question)
Viv: They seem to call it DUCK tape
Viv: and I doubt they know of its utter importance in our lives
Elle: Honestly? If I had to pick three items like desert island style or whatever, duct tape would be one of them
Viv: that’s because you’re a kinky girl. OFF TO THE PRIZE LIST!
