Fire and Cinder by Christina Bauer Interview and Giveaway with Pine Enshrined Reviews and Xpresso Book Tours.

Meet the Magicorum: modern folks who are supernaturally locked into fairy tale life templates. For eighteen-year-old Elle, that role is Cinderella. Meanwhile, Agatha is her evil stepsister. Things go downhill from there…

Cinderella On The Run
Elle—never call her Cinderella—has found the love of her life in Alec Le Charme, the prince of a jewelry dynasty. But when Alec gets spirited away, Elle must ditch her Manhattan home for the perilous Faerie Lands. To save Alec, Elle must also swap her glass slippers for a flying carpet. But will switching templates from Cinderella to Aladdin snap Elle’s sanity?

Whatever. Bring on the straight jacket. Elle is one Cinderella who’s determined to save her prince, no matter what.

Evil Stepsister or Elf Queen?
Agatha always accepted her role as Elle’s evil stepsister. Then her life template changes from nasty sibling to evil elf queen. Agatha has one thought on that score. Thanks but no thanks. Agatha refuses the regal life, even though stepping away from her crown means ignoring her lifelong attraction to the elf prince, Jacoby.

Then everything changes. Agatha discovers that Elle’s life is at risk… and the only way to save her Cinderella is by teaming up with Jacoby. Trouble is, that’s a lot of togetherness. Working with Jacoby could easily end in disaster, not only for Agatha’s heart, but also for Elle and Alec’s lives.

Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too. 

Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.

Interview: Christina Bauer, Author

As part of the launch tour for her new book, FIRE AND CINDER (Fairy Tales of the Magicorum 6), author Christina Bauer has stopped by for an interview! 

  1. Who is your favourite author and why?
    My favorite author is Sandra Nelson, my aunt and inspiration to become full-time author. She’s a poet from Frederickton, New Brunswick, Canada. Her mentorship of me when I was a kid literally saved my sanity.
  2. What are you reading now?
    The Demigods of San Francisco series by K. F. Breene. I love the sassy voice of her narrator.
  3. What book is currently on your bedside table?
    A kindle stays on my bedside table. I read the first chapters of about ten books for every one that I finish. If I didn’t go with ebooks, I’d be personally responsible for killing a small forest.
  4. What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?
    I love MYTHOLOGY by Edition Hamilton. It’s a great introduction to Greco-Roman myth. But even that title comes second to LORD OF THE RINGS by JRR Tolkien.
  5. Who is the author you most admire in your genre?
    JRR Tolkien, no question. The characters of the elf queen, Galadriel, and the warrior maiden, Éowyn, were my first kick-ass heroines. To this day, I recite one of Galadriel’s poems when I’m in need of inspiration.
  6. Favorite quote (doesn’t matter the source)
    “The darkness surrounds me, it does not become me.” I made this one up myself.
  7. Favorite book/story you have read as an adult
    The anniversary version of FAERIES with illustrations by Alan Lee.
  8. Favorite book when you were a kid
    A version of GRIMM’S FAIRY TALES from the early 1900’s. This gave me the stories in all their original and brutal glory.
  9. What famous author do you wish would be your mentor?
    JRR Tolkien, no question about it!
  10. If you could ask one successful author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be
    I’d want to ask Tolkien about his experiences in WWI and how they influenced Lord of the Rings. He wrote the book as a series of letters to his sons as they fought in WWII. What lessons was he trying to share? Was the story just a way to help them stay focused on fighting evil? I’d love to know.
