Interview with Charley Davidson and Giveaways


Hello Everyone and THANKS for stopping by!!
Today we have Charley Davidson here with us!  


For those who may not know Charley, she is a "Part-time PI, full-time grim reaper, all around badass". Well, that is what her Twitter account says. The thing is, she is a Private Investigator and a devoted friend. She is a consultant for the Albuquerque police department (her Uncle UB is a detective). Charley is a former member of the Peace Corps. She is also sassy, sarcastic, smart and yes, she is the Grim Reaper! Definitely not your "traditional Grim Reaper!" She doesn't wear a hooded cape, she's not a pile of bones nor does she come looking for you. She's bright, literally! Charley is a brilliant light that acts as a beacon to the souls of the dead. Some of the perks of being the only Grim Reaper in existence, lets see, she heals rather quickly, she has a fantastic memory (she remembers everything since the moment she was born), has always known every language ever spoken, able to sense a person's guilt or innocence, can read the emotions of others, and sees auras. As they say, with good there is bad. She's wanted by demons as the way into Heaven. That's a major one! She's also hasn't reached her full potential and she needs to soon. Well according to Reyes anyways. Who's Reyes you ask? Oh, he's the son of Satan, has known Charley since before she was born and oh yeah, he's in love with her. Minor details, right? Well, enough chitchatting! Lets not be rude to our guest. Charley is here!


Viviana: Charley it’s so wonderful to have you visit, I can’t believe I was able to snag you for this interview!

Charley: No problem. Got any coffee?

Viviana: Of course I have coffee! You and I have that in common. We both LOVE Coffee. Charley, inquiring minds want to know more about  you, can you let fans know a bit more about the woman that lives as the Grim Reaper?

Charley: Besides coffee? Well, I’m very fond of green chile stew, guacamole burgers, the son of Satan. Things like that. Oh, and solving murders. Few things are more satisfying.

Viviana: How do you feel about Darynda telling your story to the world?

Charley: First of all, she never tells the story quite right. I mean, I like coffee, but I don’t drink it 24/7. More like 22/7. And I do ponder things other than Reyes. Lots of things. Like yesterday I was pretending to dust the office, slaving over that duster thingy, wiping my brow ever so often and sighing until Cookie, my best friend-slash-receptionist, took pity on me and finished the dusting herself. That kind of acting takes preparation. A concentrated effort. I only thought of Reyes three times throughout that whole ordeal.

Viviana: Have you read any of the books in the series?  I mean they are about you.

Charley:   I’ve only read the first one. Or, well, the first few chapters of the first one. And just for the record, I’m not THAT much of a smartass.

Viviana: What is your favorite part of being the Grim Reaper?

Charley:  Helping people cross. I get to see bits and pieces of their lives, who they loved, what their favorite color was. It’s a great honor.

Viviana: Now, we're all dying to know and I'm sure you knew I was going to ask about him!! He's mysterious, a badass and absolutely gorgeous! Tells us more about Reyes. Is he as hot as Darynda describes him to be?

Charley: It’s one thing to see Reyes, to witness such utter perfection, but it’s another beast entirely to be touched by him, to hear his voice, smooth like fine whiskey and just as intoxicating. He is breathtaking, yes, but he is also the most powerful being I've ever met. To know this as he runs his fingertips over my skin is like being caught in a silken snare. On one hand, it’s intimidating. On another, I never want to leave it.

Viviana:  WoW! Damn! Wow! Give me a minute to let that sink in.

Viviana: Okay, I'm good now. Can you tell us a little something about Darynda?  She is so nice and I was wondering how you feel about her.

Charley:  Darynda does a pretty good job of getting the facts down. She needs to brush up
on grammar and such, but that should come with time. And she makes a mean mocha
latte. She’s great!

Viviana: Thank you so much Charley for being here,  I hope to sit down with you again.  Maybe Reyes could join you next time. It was so much fun tweeting with you both the other night on Twitter. He got a little jealous when I asked you about Donovan. Reyes said he was a "Douche". LOL!! Again, thanks for stopping by!

Charley: You are very welcome.  That was fun the other night!  Thank you for having me.  Sadly, if Reyes had popped in incorporeally, you wouldn’t have been able to see him, but you would have known it when he brushed across your skin. There are few things on earth that hot.


Wow! That was AWESOME!!!
 Hope you all enjoyed hanging out with Charley and me!!

Synopsis:
Sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above. Or at least get dressed. She quickly realizes something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane. The more they refute the woman’s story, the more Charley believes it.

In the meantime, the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, has been cleared of all charges. He is out of prison and out of Charley’s life, as per her wishes and several perfectly timed death threats. But his absence has put a serious crimp in her sex life. While there are other things to consider, like the fact that the city of Albuquerque has been taken hostage by an arsonist, Charley is having a difficult time staying away. Especially when it looks like Reyes may be involved. Just when life was returning to normal, Charley is thrust back into the world of crime, punishment, and the devil in blue jeans.

    1. Misty!!! Thanks for stopping by! Charley is fantastic!! It was great hanging out with her. Nah.. she doesn't mind that you (or anyone of us)are in love with Reyes! That topic came up while we tweeted the other night (which was a blast. Even Reyes joined the conversations). She knows how hot he is and that we find him irresistible. She's cool. Plus at the end of the day, he always goes to her. ;)

    1. Lisa, you'll love the books. The heroine is smart and sassy. I don't like heroines that are whiny at all (pet peeve of mine actually). Darynda's style of light hearted, witty, and intelligent!! :)

      Let me know what your thoughts are when you read the first book!!
