I loved Everblue last year, but Evergreen beats it out!  I asked Brenda if I could do a group interview, becuase they are so much fun!!  Don't forget to check out the BIR schedule!! 

****About the Book****
Evergreen by Brenda Pandos
Published Date:June 2012

The Story:
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 find 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?

Author Bio:

Brenda Pandos lives in California with her husband and two boys. She attempts to balance her busy life filled with writing, being a mother and wife, and spending time with friends and family. Working formerly as an I.T. Administrator, she never believed her imagination would be put to good use. After her son was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder her life completely changed. Writing paranormal romance became something she could do at home while tending to the new needs of her family, household, and herself.

Three years later, Brenda now has five books published, The Talisman Trilogy: The Emerald Talisman, The Sapphire Talisman, and The Onyx Talisman, and Mer Tales: Everblue and Evergreen. She is currently working on the third book of Mer Tales, Everlost, coming February 2013.

****Group interview****

Nicole: Welcome, Fin, Ash, Galadriel and Jax.

The group in unison: Thank for having us.

Nicole: Which is better *inserting evil grin* being human or being a mer?

Fin: That depends on what you’re doing.

Galadriel winks at Fin: Oh-h-h, naughty.

Fin’s cheeks redden: That’s not what I meant, Glad.

Galadriel laughs: Oh, you can play that off all you want, but we know darn well that’s what you mean.

Ash: What are they talking about, Fin?

Fin holds Ash’s hand: Nothing. Galadriel’s mind is in the gutter and I’ll explain later.

Galadriel knocks Fin’s knee with hers and laughs.

Fin scowls: I think I like aspects of both, I just wish I could choose when I fin out.

Jax: Being on land rocks! I could get used to this place. 

Nicole: Fin, what did you think when you saw Galadriel?

Fin: I thought she was a figment of my imagination for a second ‘cause they look so much alike, but after she opened her mouth, I knew different.

Galadriel’s mouth gapes: What?

Fin laughs.

Nicole: Jax, what did you think about when you met Ashlyn?

Jax: I thought that for a second, too, ‘cause it was dark and her hair was wet, but then… I knew it wasn’t her after I got closer. They do look a lot alike.

Galadriel and Ash look at one another and smile.

Nicole: Girls, do the boys get along now that they know they aren't going after each other's girl?

Galadriel smiles as Ash frowns.

Ash: What?

Fin: Hey, I was never interested in Galadriel.

Galadriel: Sure you weren’t.

Fin exhales: Galadriel was the one coming onto me.

Jax: Now you take that back, Fin!

Fin holds up his hands: It’s true. Ask her.

Jax scowls at Galadriel: What’s he talking about?

Galadriel: Don’t mind him, baby. He just likes to stir drama up.

Fin sighs: I love you, Ash. Don’t listen to them.

Ash sighs too and rests on Fin’s shoulder.

Nicole laughs: OK, moving on.  Where would you want to live, once the war and everything settles down?

Galadriel: That’s a good question.

Fin: Wherever Ash wants to live.

Ash: Tahoe. I’d like to live in Tahoe.

Fin: Then it’s settled. Tahoe.

Jax: I’m with Gladdy, wherever she goes, I go.

Galadriel smiles.
