DRINK DEEP Blog Tour & Contest - Interview with Merit

Publishers Description: Clouds are brewing over Cadogan House, and recently turned vampire Merit can’t tell if this is the darkness before the dawn or the calm before the storm. With the city iself in turmoil over paranormals and the state threatening to pass a paranormal registration act, times haven’t been this precarious for vampires since they came out of the closet. If only they could lay low for a bit, and let the mortals calm down.

That’s when the waters of Lake Michigan suddenly turn pitch black-and things really start getting ugly.

Chicago’s mayor insists it’s nothing to worry about, but Merit knows only the darkest magic could have woven a spell powerful enough to change the very fabric of nature. She’ll have to turn to friends old and new to find out who’s behind this, and stop them before it’s too late for vampires and humans alike.


Hey readers! With upcoming release of Chloe Neill's newest Chicagoland Vampire novel DRINK DEEP, I have invited Cadogan very own Sentinel, Merit, to the Nice Girls Blog for a little Q&A. Also in celebration of my Birthday today, I'm giving away an eBook copy of DRINK DEEP!!!


Welcome Metit! We're excited to have you here at the Nice Girls Blog. Thank you for taking time out of you ass-kicking schedule to chat with us!

Q: What is your favorite part of being a vampire?

Merit: Being able to eat whatever I want whenever I want and not gain a pound. The metabolism is awesome!

Q: Knowing what you know now, would you become a vampire again if given the choice?

Merit: That's a hard question. I've been given the gift of immortality, but I've also had to completely change my life and my lifestyle, and give up everything I knew before. I'd have to think about that one.

Q: What is your favorite book from Cadogan Library and why?

Merit: There are some books of vampire literature--gothic stories written by vampires for vampires--that humans don't even know existed. It's the kind of stuff I would have loved to read while in graduate school! Think Jane Eyre with vampires.

Q: What is the best piece of advice you have been give since you've became a vampire and who gave it to you?

Merit: Ethan told me once that I'd have to make a decision--pick a side between vampires and humans and commit to one or the other. I think that's true in a lot of areas of life. You can't stand around and wait for things to happen. You have to do them yourself.

Q: You seem to love your local Chicago eateries. Where is you favorite place to eat?

Merit: I love Crust, a pizza restaurant in Wicker Park. And Rosebud Trattoria. The vodka sauce is LEGENDARY.

Q: If your fellow initiates were to plan the perfect birthday party for you, who would attend, where would it be held, and what flavor of cake would they choose?

Merit: Can we have the vodka sauce at Rosebud Trattoria? No, I kid. Mallory would be there, obviously, and my grandfather. Maybe my sister, and definitely Jeff, Luc and Lindsey. And Margot and Katherine from the House. I'm pretty flexible on the location, but there must be chocolate cake. Lots of chocolate cake!

Merit: Thanks for having me today!

Merit, we really appreciate you stopping by to answer a few questions! Also thank to everyone for stopping by on this DRINK DEEP Blog Tour Stop, and if you haven't purchased DRINK DEEP run right out and get it!
