Weds Chat & Giveaway: Red Ridge Pack Authors

Hey all!

It's Weds and you know what that means! Guest author! Actually today I've got a two-for-one for you--Sara Dailey and Staci Weber, the two authors behind the awesome Red Ridge Pack werewolf series from Boroughs Publishing. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to read the first book in the series, Pack of Lies, last year to give a cover quote and let me tell you, I was hooked! I mean--kick ass werewolf heroine, hot werewolf boys--need I say more?

Here's the blurb for the first book: Pack of Lies

Seventeen-year-old Allison Wright is convinced she’s losing her mind. Uncontrollable mood swings, hot flashes, and the urge to punch anyone who gets in her way are suddenly becoming everyday occurrences. Before her erratic behavior gets out of hand, Allison’s mother finally comes clean about her dark secret. Her mom is a werewolf, and soon Allison and her brother Aiden will suffer the same fate. When Allison reaches her breaking point, the family leaves their life in Texas to move to Red Ridge, New Mexico where they rejoin the pack that Allison’s mother left behind almost 20 years ago.

Unfortunately, not everyone in Red Ridge is thrilled about Allison’s arrival, especially when she attracts the attention of the very handsome, very taken, soon-to-be alpha, Cade Walker. Little does Allison know, her mere presence is causing a rift in a once unified pack. Not only has Cade been forbidden from being with Allison by his father, the pack’s alpha, Cade’s girlfriend, Kendall Stuart, will stop at nothing to get Allison out of the picture. Well on her way to becoming the next alpha’s mate, Kendall expects to rule the pack by Cade’s side even if it means teaming up with a rogue werewolf with an agenda of his own. Determined to get rid of Allison permanently, when Kendall and the rogue join forces, all hell breaks loose and no one in the pack is safe, especially not Cade and his true mate.

Of course with hot werewolf boys you need a hot soundtrack (amiright Stephanie Meyer?) so I asked Sara and Staci to send me their playlists for Pack of Lies and its sequel Circle of Lies. Check it out below and be sure to enter the contest at the bottom--for a chance to win e-copies of the books! 

Sara and Staci: We grew up in the 80s and early 90s when movie soundtracks were all the rage.  Looking back, we can both remember listening to the Reality Bites and Footloose (the original) soundtracks over and over again on our Walkmans.  Yes, a little cassette player with headphones attached.   This was before CDs were readily available and iPods didn’t exist.  Today, there are some soundtracks that have gained a great deal of popularity, like the Twilight and The Hunger Games soundtracks, but oddly enough, those were both books before they were movies.  We think it would be cool if more books, like movies, had soundtracks.  Music connects to so many teens.  They’re always listening to music; it’s no secret that their ear buds rarely leave their ears.  So why not connect music to novels?  It’s fun finding songs that resonate with our storylines and that will hopefully connect with our readers.  With that said, here’s our very own soundtrack for our novels, Pack of Lies and Circle of Lies:

It would probably be Kenny Chesney's Pirate Flag because there will be times where we want to break free for a while.

Thanks so much for featuring the Red Ridge Pack series on your blog! What an awesome opportunity?! We just finished writing the prequel, Born of Lies, so your fabulous fans can look for it in May and book 3 this summer!
