13 Days of Christmas Giveaways: Day Ten!

It’s the tenth day of the 13 Days of Christmas Giveaways! And now... we have Chelsea Fine!
Chelsea is no stranger to the blog, she was here, promoting her debut novel Sophie & Carter and now she’s back with a new novel and a super fun interview!
The prize for today is a signed paper-copy of her new novel Anew, she’s also adding a signed copy to the massively huge Grand Prize Giveaway Pot!
Before we get to the interview, let me introduce you to Anew book 1 in the Archers of Avalon series.


Two years ago, Scarlet awoke in the forest alone, afraid, and without her memory. Lost and confused, her life was a mystery until she met a boy with a familiar voice named Gabriel Archer. Intrigued by his voice, Scarlet immerses herself in Gabriel's life only to stumble upon a secret he's kept hidden from her: His brother. Once Scarlet meets Tristan Archer her life becomes even more muddled. While she's instinctively drawn to Gabriel, she's impossibly drawn to Tristan--and confused out of her mind. Why does Gabriel seem so familiar? Why is she so attracted to Tristan? And why are both brothers convinced she's been cursed to die? Scarlet doesn't have the answers...but the Archer brothers do.

Wow! This blurb sounds awesome, and who wouldn’t love a book with two brothers!

Of course I’d like you to enter the contest and see if you win a copy of Anew, but if you must delve into this novel and meet the Archer Brothers as well as Scarlet you can buy Anew from Amazon and Barnes & Noble!
Chelsea was kind enough to stick around and answer a few questions about her, and her novel Anew, so without further adieu...
Welcome Chelsea! Can you tell us a bit about yourself? How about in five words or less.
I smile a LOT.
Now why don’t you tell us a bit about Anew? In five words or less, of courseJ
Love triangle with a curse.
Say you want a pizza, right this second (it’s okay if you do) what kind would it be?
 Hawaiian! I love pineapple! Yum. J
You’ve decided to backpack through the Amazon, only two books will fit in your pack, what would you bring and why?
The Count of Monte Cristo (love!) and The Notebook (my favorite book of all time).
 So, where do you get your inspiration for your novels from?
 Mostly from the people and situations in my life. But sometimes I’m inspired simply but my own desires. I’ll think to myself, “You know what would be great? If I discovered I had a superpower and was from another dimension…” and then I’ll go write a story about a girl from another dimension with a crazy superpower. J
 Can you give us a teaser from the Anew? You know something that will hook and send everyone out to go buy the book right this second.
 She rummaged through her brain for something—any information at all. But her memories seemed lost.
Stolen, even.
As if plucked with magical precision from her head leaving nothing but emptiness.
She was terrified.
She closed her eyes and tried to think. There had to be something in the emptiness; something inside her head that could echo back a memory. She scanned her mind desperately until finally….
Click. Hidden far away, in the back of her brain, was a tiny scrap of knowledge. It flitted about like a hummingbird, teasing her with answers as she chased it around.
Finally, she grasped it and her eyes flew open with two revelations.
Her name was Scarlet Jacobs.
And she was fifteen years old.
Aside from that, she remembered nothing.
 What was the most difficult part of your journey to publication?
Probably summoning up the courage to actually have editors/publishers read my stuff. My books seem so personal to me…like, they’re my babies or something, and for a long time I was really afraid of letting anyone else read them. So, I had to swallow my fears and be brave!
 There are a million different publishers/agents in the industry how did you land your publisher and or agent? 
 Luck. I know, that’s a lame answer, but it’s the truth. I sent my manuscript to a proof-reader I found on Craigslist and was referred to my publisher. Weird, right? But SO awesome!
 Finally, do you have any words of wisdom for aspiring authors? Maybe a lesson that you’ve learned that you’d like to share.
 Don’t give up! You’re never too young or too old. You’re never too busy or too naive. Just write. Write, write, write…until something magical pours out of you and you sit back and say, “Wow. I want to share this. I believe in this story.” Just keep writing! J
