Interview: Hot Blooded by Amanda Carlson

UFI welcomes Amanda Carlson Author of The Jessica McClain series. Thanks for Joining us!!

Author This or That

Coffee or Tea: Coffee all the way! Tea is too hot-watery for me. I need more flavor.

Angels or Demons: Demons. You have to love the scary they bring to the story.

Coke or Pepsi: Coke for sure. But, I’ve sworn off all soda in the last year. I had to. My diet Coke addiction was taking over. It’s been tough, but it’s going well.

Facebook or Twitter: I love Twitter because I’m a chatter at heart. Twitter breaks up my day nicely and it’s always immediate.

Vampires or Werewolves: Hot, steamy, loyal, werewolves. Is there anything better?

Left or Right: Ooh, that’s a difficult one. I’d say right, because you know, I’m always right. HA! But sometimes when you take that unexpected left turn it’s so much fun.

Pizza or Pasta: Pizza. But really French fries.

YA or Adult: Adult. I’ve read some brilliant YA in the past few years, but I love my read with a KICK, if you know what I mean *wink, wink*

Up or Down: Up. Always up.

Reading or Writing: Writing. For me it’s something intrinsic. I have to do it.

Panel Speaking or Book Signing: Panel speaking! Book signing freaks me out every time. I always feel like I’m going to mess up.

Thanks for hosting me today! Such a pleasure to be here. HOT BLOODED releases next Tuesday, 4/23 and I’m so excited.

Amanda is a graduate of the University of Minnesota, with a BA in both Speech and Hearing Science & Child Development. She went on to get an A.A.S in Sign Language Interpreting and worked as an interpreter until her first child was born.

Hot Blooded
Jessica McClain #2

It hasn't been the best week for Jessica McClain.

Her mate has been kidnapped by a Goddess hell-bent on revenge --- but Jessica is playing for keeps.

Because she's the only female werewolf in comes with its own set of rules...and powers.

Aided by two vamps, two loyal Pack members, and one very reluctant human, Jessica must rescue her man while coming to terms with what being a wolf really means.

All in a day's work for a girl.

The second novel in the Jessica McClain series is a full on action adventure featuring one angry Goddess and plenty of monsters, demons, and a few newly risen beasties..


  1. I gave up Diet Coke a year ago. It was so hard but when I do cave on the rare occasion it makes me feel horrible!

    I've seen Amanda on a book panel before (AAD) & she was fantastic and funny. So nice too!

  2. Congratulations on the new release. So looking forward to continuing the journey :) Thank you so much for taking the time to share with us and make me smile.


Thanks for stopping by =)
