Blog Tour: Anna Dressed in Blood + Giveaway!

Let's Welcome Kendare Blake to Flippin' Fabulous - A Reader's Record.  She is the debut author of Anna Dressed in Blood!  To read my FABULOUS review of Anna Dressed in Blood |Click Here!

I was lucky enough to be able to ask Kendare a few questions about *ghosts* so read on to find out what she had to say AND for how to have your chance at winning a Kindle3 WiFi.

1.      [1] Do you believe ghost exist in our world or are they purely fiction for you?  Any encounters or experiences that add to your thoughts? I believe that ghosts exist. Why not? You can’t exactly disprove it, and I know lots of friends of friends who have had at least one weird experience. I don’t know why they would exist though, and if I think about it long enough, it becomes sort of depressing. I tend to believe a thing if enough people have seen it, and they don’t seem nuts. But then, look how long those jerks fooled everyone with that house in Amityville.

2.     [2]  If you believe they exist, have you ever encountered one?  If you don't believe they exist, why do you think they call to such a powerful part of the human psyche? I have had no encounters. Maybe someday. Fingers crossed. No wait. A friend and I were walking down a road once and saw a graveyard extremely close to the road. We thought it was disrespectful, to build the road so close. But when we went back the next day, we couldn’t find it. I’m pretty sure we just got turned around though.
[3] What would you most want to ask a ghost if you came face to face with one? That would depend on the ghost. If they are amiable, then I would be amiable. Just have a nice conversation. But are they full of attitude? Are they trying to kill me? Covered in flour and shaking chains? Because that’s just rude. I feel like I’d probably waste a lot of time with small talk. I should probably remember to ask what the afterlife is like. Or what dying is like. This just got morbid!

Read on for a fun and fabulous chance at winning a Kindle3 WiFi complete in a Anna Dressed in Blood skin and loaded with a copy of Anna Dressed in Blood.

About Anna Dressed in Blood + Author Kendare Blake:

Just your average boy-meets-girl, girl-kills-people story…
Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.
So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder by a ghost he sought tokill. Now, armed with his father’s mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels thecountry with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together theyfollow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keepingpesky things like the future and friends at bay.
When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressedin Blood, Cas doesn’t expect anything outside of the ordinary: move, hunt, kill.What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he’snever faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutalmurder in 1958: once white, but now stained red and dripping blood. Since herdeath, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into thedeserted Victorian she used to call home.
And she, for whatever reason, spares his life.
