Hi Bethany!!!! Just excuse me while I fangirl over you for a second…. *deep breath* deep breath*
Okay… sorry! Moving on… Thank you so much for being here today at the Bookish Brunette, during Fiktshun and Two Chicks On Books Authors Are Rockstars tour!!!
Masque of the Red Death was simply AMAZING. Seriously, one of my favorite books ever! When you were creating the world that Araby lived in… What did you seek inspiration from?
When I think “dystopian” and freakishly crazy mutated airborne pathogen that will KILL you unless you wear a MASK over your face- I instantly think “gas mask” type, HUGE metal contraption covering your entire face/body! But you made them porcelain and almost dainty… which to me is even more creepy awesome than full body armor! What was your reasoning behind the delicate vs. masculine nature of the masks?
You have two VERY interesting heroes in Masque of the Red Death, both of them are SO different, yet so compelling! Have you noticed any Team trend among your fans? Do you have a favorite? (*cough* I LOVE Elliott *cough*)
Masque has been published all over the world! Which cover is your fav???
Have you anticipated the number of books that will ultimately be in the Masque series?
Did you listen to any playlists or particular band while writing Masque?
Can you tell us anything about what MIGHT be coming up next for Araby in Dance of the Red Death? I’m pretty much DYING for it!!
I may have been stalking your website and reading your bio… You said on your first Christmas you got a book… What was the book? Do you still have it??
Who’s your favorite character from The Wizard of Oz and why?
And of course… Are you Team ZOMBIE or Team Vamp? *cue Jeopardy theme music*
Masque of the Red Death (Masque of the Red Death #1)
by Bethany Griffin
Everything is in ruins.
A devastating plague has decimated the population. And those who are left live in fear of catching it as the city crumbles to pieces around them.
So what does Araby Worth have to live for?
Nights in the Debauchery Club, beautiful dresses, glittery make-up . . . and tantalizing ways to forget it all.
But in the depths of the club—in the depths of her own despair—Araby will find more than oblivion. She will find Will, the terribly handsome proprietor of the club. And Elliott, the wickedly smart aristocrat. Neither boy is what he seems. Both have secrets. Everyone does.
And Araby may find something not just to live for, but to fight for—no matter what it costs her.
