Evergreen (Mer Tales #2) Blog Tour: interview & giveaway

I'm excited to be a part of the Evergreen Blog Tour today!
The lovely heroine from the Mer Tales, Ashlyn "Ash" Lanski, is stopping by for an exclusive interview. Plus, there's a giveaway!!!

First, I want thank you Ash for taking the time to answer my questions and giving everybody a chance to get to know you a little better!

Thanks for having me, Aeicha. And you’ve got such a lovely name. I apologize that I’m a little nervous.

WS: What three words best describe you?
AL-Organized, Timely, Thoughtful

WS: What is your favorite:
Color? Green
Book? Um…. I’m not sure.
Movie/TV Show? *blushes* Vampire Diaries
Place? First, anywhere Fin is, then the water, where else?
Smell? Fin… he smells heavenly.

WS: You've recently learned of the existence of mers...what other mythical creatures (if any) do you hope exists? 
AL- I what? *looks around and gulps* I don’t know what you’re talking about. Mer people aren’t real.

WS: If you could switch places with anybody in the world for just one day, who would you switch with? What would you do as them?
AL- I don’t know. Anyone near Fin right now… I miss him so much.

WS: What's your favorite memory that involves you and your BFF, Tatchi? 
AL- There was one time when we got this brilliant idea to dive bomb Fin’s Jeep with water balloons as he drove by, but he retaliated later when we were laying out with a super soaker. We were always pulling pranks on him and vice versa.

WS: Your favorite memory involving you and your boyfriend Fin? 
AL- Well, our first “real” kiss and then when he proposed, if only I could hang onto to him and not let him go to Florida.

WS: Fill in the blanks:
I'm really awesome at ______.
I'm embarrassed to admit that ______. 
I like soduku as much as I do.
My first crush was _______. 

WS: What is your greatest fear? 
AL- Losing Fin
WS: Your biggest regret? 
AL- Not leaving with his family when they left for Florida. 
WS: Your most desired wish/dream? 
AL- To reunite with Fin TODAY! Man… I hate it those stupid evil fish doers came back. 
WS: What's the craziest and/or scariest thing you've ever done? 
AL- Most definitely taking the boat out during spring just to go to the island to dig up the treasure box Tatchi and I buried. And then to fall in and almost drown. Thank goodness for my guardian angel, Fin. But all the lying about it, yeah… that was dumb!

WS: If you were to create and bake a cupcake inspired by your life, what would it look/taste like? What would it be called? 
AL- It would probably be missing an ingredient, like the salt or something. I never real feel like I belong, like something is missing in my life, except when I’m with Fin. He gets me. 

Thanks so much for stopping by Ash!

Evergreen (Mer Tales #2)
A kingdom on the brink of war.
A king on the fringes of insanity.
A family running for their lives. 
Ash and Fin’s only desire is to be together and dive into their happily ever after, though their conflicting worlds 
work to pull them apart. Neither is ready to convert to the other’s life: become a human or a mer. Little do 
they know that somewhere in Natatoria a secret holds the fine fabric of everyone’s lives together. If the truth is 
discovered, Ash and Fin will no longer have the luxury of waiting. They’ll be forced to choose. But will it be for 
loyalty or love? Or will someone else make the choice for them if they can’t decide? 
Enter the watery world of treachery, greed, and the binding mer kiss as the story continues with Evergreen, book 
two of Mer Tales.

When you write do you already have the while story played out in your mind or does it all come together as you write? Does the story sometimes take you somewhere than what you originally thought? : )
