Rose Pressey (author of How to Date a Werewolf and No Shoes, No Shirt, No Spells) has a new book out, Rock n’ Roll is Undead, and it’s so super cute that I wanted to ask her a few questions about the title.
AA - What is the premise of Rock n’Roll is Undead and what was the inspiration for the book?
RP - Rock 'n' Roll is Undead is about a rockabilly singer living in a fun paranormal world. She's a witch with less-than-stellar magic skills. I'm a big rockabilly music fan, so I wanted to introduce readers to that fun world.
AA - Do you play an instrument or have you ever played an instrument? If yes, tell us about it. If no, what would you like to play and why?
RP - I don't play an instrument, but I love to sing.
AA - You have a contest running for the next Mystic Café series. What is it and how can people enter?
RP - The contest is to have a character in the next Mystic Cafe series named after the winner. I'm really excited about it. I can't wait to find out the winner. The contest ends July 31. All people have to do is leave a comment on my blog post to enter.
AA - Who/What are some of your favorite bands, singers, songs, musical genres? In other words, what do you listen to, why and when?
RP - I love all music. I can listen to just about anything. My favorite is oldies like Elvis, Buddy Holly, Pasty Cline, etc. I really like Imelda May. I'm also a fan of bluegrass music. I think I lived in the fifties in my previous life. Ha-ha. I usually don't listen to music while I'm writing because I sing along too much and it's distracting.
AA - The covers of your books are really cute. What can you tell us about them? Is there an artist to credit or do you make them yourself?
RP - I do the covers myself with stock images. I enjoy making them more than I thought I would. It's a lot of fun.
AA - What can you tell us about your next book? Besides the fabulous contest.
RP - The next book I have coming out is Ghouls Night Out. It's the follow-up to Me and My Ghoulfriends. After that is How to Date a Vampire. I do have a new series I'll be working on when I get the time. I'm very excited about it, but I can't say much about it just yet.
AA - Thank you Rose Pressy
RP - Thanks for having me on your blog, Adrianne!
