Penelope is a witch, part of a secret society protecting humans from demon attacks. But when she was a child, a demon killed her parents—and stole her magic. Since then, she’s been pretending to be something she’s not, using her sister’s magic to hide her own loss, to prevent being sent away.
When she’s finally given the chance to join the elite demon-hunting force, Penelope thinks that will finally change. With her sister’s help, she can squeeze through the tests and get access to the information she needs to find “her” demon. To take back what was stolen.
Then she meets Carter. He’s cute, smart, and she can borrow his magic, too. He knows her secret—but he also has one of his own.
Suddenly, Penelope’s impossible quest becomes far more complicated. Because Carter’s not telling her everything, and it’s starting to seem like the demons have their own agenda…and they’re far too interested in her.
Carter, Carter, Carter… Heh I just like saying your name. Any who! Welcome to Shortie Says, so stoked to have you here!! 😉
Glad to be here, Shortie. I like your nickname.
Ooooh, thank you :)… like yours too ;).
1. So, blue? Out of every color converse why blue?
You know, I’m not hugely drawn to blue or anything. I was going to buy some simple black and white ones, standard, but there I was in the store and I kept coming back to them. Black was the safe bet, and I don’t do safe bets, so I bought them. It’s good to stand out.
2. What’s it like being a witch? Or warlock I guess? You have a favorite thing to do?
I’m a witch, and a guy. That’s one thing the Non-magical world likes to distinguish, but not us. It’s one of the weird ways our community is hypocritical in our standards, but that’s another conversation. What’s it like to be a witch? It depends on the person. It’s pressure, standards, rules, but it’s also fun. I have magic, so that’s what it’s like. My favorite thing to do…Honestly, aside from the magic and demons, I’m just like you. I like to be outside: hiking, kayaking, biking.
UGH! Kayaking is so much fun! I loves it!
3. What did you think when you first met Penelope? Was it luuurrrve at first sight?
When I first met Penelope she was standing in an alley trying to expel a demon. At first I thought she was nuts, but she was determined. That’s why I stayed and watched her. I knew something was off and I thought, “what can this girl do now?” And she pulled it off. Love at first sight? I wouldn’t say that. I will say that I was immediately intrigued, and then once I got to know her, it was pretty obvious that she was special.
4. Since you love going to that coffee shop, what’s your favorite type of coffee?! Mines a cinnamon dolce latte mmm, we should go out sometime! 😉
I like Americanas with a little bit of sugar. Sometimes, I’ll drink that iced. Yours sounds sweet–I’m not a cinnamon fan. *laughs* We could have coffee sometime, but my girlfriend can be pretty scary. I bet you could give her a run for her money though.
I bet I could give her a run for her money ;). I like Americanas too!
– Tongue Rings or Eye Brow piercing? Neither
– Expensive car or a sports bike? Car
– A fun night out or a romantic night in? Both 🙂
– Boxers or briefs ;)? Briefs
Thanks for stopping by Carter!! Come back any time! I mean it. Any. Time. Maybe we can do a little magic together. 😉 …okay that was lame. Just get your cute butt back here some time!
Anytime you want me, Shortie. Anytime. I aim to please.
Danielle Ellison is from a small town in West Virginia. She spent her childhood pretending to fly and talking to imaginary friends. When she grew up, she finally flew away (in an airplane) and started traveling the world. She hasn’t stopped yet, but someday she may decide to settle in one place. Her real life friends would definitely like that; they would probably also like if she stopped talking to her characters out loud.
SALT comes out in August 2013, and then it’s sequel. In October 2014, FOLLOW ME THROUGH DARKNESS (book one of the BOUNDLESS Trilogy) comes out. She’s got a busy few years!
