Breathless Reads Interview Week: Lili Peloquin, author of THE INNOCENTS

Welcome to the Breathless Reads Interview Week! Each day this week, I'm posting a new interview from one of the five Fall 2012 Breathless Reads Authors. Comment on each interview, and you can win an ARC. Comment on all five interviews, and you're entered to win a box set of all the books! Keep reading for more details on the contest and more ways to win!

Today, we're celebrating Lili Peloquin, author of THE INNOCENTS! THE INNOCENTS is a contemporary novel--with a twist. It's like a soap opera and a mystery all in one. Also? the name of the town it's set in is Serenity Point. Doesn't that sound awesome?

Cyberstalk Lili!
Now for the Interview! Because there's five books in the 2012 Breathless Reads line-up, I've got five questions for the authors.

1. Please describe your book in five words:
Haunted, moody, smoldering, seductive, suspenseful.

2. Please describe your main character in five words:
I’ve got two main characters, so you have to give me some leeway here.

Alice: smart, thoughtful, observant, careful, romantic.
Charlie: impulsive, headstrong, passionate, fun-loving, loyal

3. Now the tough one! Describe yourself in five words:
Impatient, watchful, private, bookish, bad-tempered.  (I sound like a delight, don’t I?)

4. Can you give us a hint about what makes your book “breathless”?
To me the ne plus ultra genre combination in books as well as in movies is the whodunit and the soap opera.  There’s nothing I flip over more than a story that’s able to mix narrative suspense with nuanced characters.  So, The Innocents—I think, I hope—leaves you breathless in two senses: twisty plot and sheer sexiness!

5. What are five other books that have left you breathless? 
I can tell you five books that definitely left me sans breath: Falling Kingdom by Morgan Rhodes, Origin by Jessica Khoury, Venom by Fiona Paul, Black City by Elizabeth Richards, and A Million Suns: An Across the Universe Novel by Beth Revis. Aw, thanks! :)

The five books that have influenced me the most are: The Magus by John Fowles, Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, Lulu Incognito by Raymond Kennedy, Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, and The Secret History by Donna Tartt.

And now for the contest!!
