The Haunting Season Book Blitz: Author Interview and Giveaway with Michelle Muto

Hi, everyone!


I am pleased to participate in the Book Blitz hosted by Xpresso Book Tours for Michelle Muto's The Haunting Season.


About Michelle:
Michelle Muto lives in northeast Georgia with her husband and two dogs. She loves changes of season, dogs, and all things geeky. Currently, she’s hard at work on her next book.



CONNECT ONLINE WITH MICHELLE: 


Welcome to Darlene's Book Nook, Michelle!
How did you come up with the idea for your book?


During a trip to Savannah, I visited the Sorrel-Weed house, which is reported to be Savannah’s most haunted house.


What is different about this book compared to others you’ve written?

For starters, The Haunting Season is New Adult. Secondly, the main characters are not supernatural beings.

 
Most unique or unusual research you’ve ever done for The Haunting Season?

Besides visiting the Sorrel-Weed house? Asking a former mortician about embalming methods in the early to mid 1900’s and how embalming and burial procedures have changed and why. It’s both fascinating and a bit gruesome.

 
What is the hardest part about writing?

Keeping my butt in the chair for as many hours as I need to per day. Resisting the urge to jump on the internet when I’m having difficulty with a scene.

 
If you could meet any author who is no longer living, who would it be?

Tough call. Edgar Allan Poe, probably. But I’d also like to meet Rod Serling and Alfred Hitchcock.

 
Can you tell us a little about your next project?

It’s a adult dark fantasy novel with action, castles, and gargoyles. It’ll be out early this summer.

 

If you could do one thing over again in regards to writing, what would it be?
 

Write faster.



~ Fun Facts ~

Vanilla or chocolate?

Chocolate.

 
Food you like the most? The least?

I tend to like Italian food the most. I can’t stand brussel sprouts or peas.

 
Favorite television show?

Supernatural

 

What weapon would you choose in the zombie apocalypse?

Harry Potter’s wand or maybe Dean Winchester. He’d be a formidable weapon against zombies, right? <grin>

 
What scares you?

Humanity. The way people treat others, animals, or the environment.



Thanks so much for joining us today, Michelle! It was a lot of fun getting to know you better!


One lucky winner will win a digital copy of Michelle's NA Paranormal novel, The Haunting Season.

Be careful what you let in…

Siler House has stood silent beneath Savannah’s moss-draped oaks for decades. Notoriously haunted, it has remained empty until college-bound Jess Perry and three of her peers gather to take part in a month-long study on the paranormal. Jess, who talks to ghosts, quickly bonds with her fellow test subjects. One is a girl possessed. Another just wants to forget. The third is a guy who really knows how to turn up the August heat, not to mention Jess’s heart rate…when he’s not resurrecting the dead.

The study soon turns into something far more sinister when they discover that Siler House and the dark forces within are determined to keep them forever. In order to escape, Jess and the others will have to open themselves up to the true horror of Siler House and channel the very evil that has welcomed them all.

  2. I am very much in need of a ghost story to read! They have been my favorite types of books to read since I was a little girl! The last one I read was 'The Small Hand' by Susan Hill last year. :)
