Today's the day, the Moonless release blogfest!

I'm chuffed today to be a part of Crystal Collier's blogfest to celebrate the print release of her novel, Moonless ...


In the English society of 1768 where women are bred to marry, unattractive Alexia, just sixteen, believes she will end up alone. But on the county doorstep of a neighbor’s estate, she meets a man straight out of her nightmares, one whose blue eyes threaten to consume her whole world—especially when she discovers him standing over her murdered host in the middle of the night.

Her nightmares become reality: a dead baron, red-eyed wraiths, and forbidden love with a man hunted by these creatures. After an attack close to home, Alexia realizes she cannot keep one foot in her old life and one in this new world. To protect her family she must either be sold into a loveless marriage, or escape with her beloved and risk becoming one of the Soulless.



This one really sounds exciting and I'm looking forward to getting stuck in with it.

To celebrate the occasion (and why not?), Crystal has one question she'd love to know the answer to ...

If you lived in a society where arranged marriages were a la mode, whom would you beg your parents to set you up with? Why? (Literary characters and celebrities welcomed.) 

I love this question and it's really taken some thought, but in the end I've gone for ...

The Tenth Doctor!

He'd just be the best guy to be married to, we'd be able to go off on adventures through time and space and all that. Plus, you know, it's David Tennant ... Need I say more?

  2. Oh my goodness--you're totally right. He'd be the perfect match if you want to shoot through time and space. I'm pretty happy with the here and now, plus I get motion sickness...though I would fancy a little bit of time travel...

    1. I'm sure there's probably something on the TARDIS to help with motion sickness. I must admit, too much spinning would send my head funny :-)

  3. No, you needn't say more. David Tennant is my Doctor too. *swoons* (Just don't let River know or else we'd be in trouble!)

    1. And I bet the TARDIS is far more comfortable than the DeLorean :-)

      The widget is part of the Blogger options, I just use the 'Image' option to link to the relevant Goodreads page.

  14. I'm probably the only person in the planet who hasn't watched most Tennant Dr. Who episodes (or any, for that matter, since the 80s).
