Book Tour & Giveaway (US/Int): DVK gets up close and very personal with AKM’s Micah & Trace – a GT Signature Interview!

by davincikittieApril 1, 2013

If you’re a fan of Donya Lynne’s All the King’s Men series, you know the relationship between Micah and Trace is an intense one.  Best friends, brothers-in-arms, Master and slave, these two vampire males are just getting started on their journey together and I was nosy (and brave) enough to grill the pair of ’em for the juice deets.  After a little Facebook flirting and cajoling (which was not a hardship – Micah is a hottie!), I talked myself into a personal interview the the boys and OH what fun it was!

For those of you following the series with anticipation for what might be brewing between Sam (Micah’s mate) and these two lethal warriors, you must read this interview!  You’ll find no spoilers for future content, but there are some… intriguing… revelations and admissions that you absolutely will not want to miss.  If you’re new to the series, skip this interview (download it for reading later, or just bookmark this post), read the series, then come back and let us know what you think about everything!

About the author

author Donya Lynne[/pullquote_left]Donya resides in Indiana, with her husband and a small zoo of cats and dogs. In fact, her writing buddy, Lucky, might become more famous than she is, based on the feedback the ever-present feline receives on her Facebook page.

As a little girl, Donya always had a book in her hand. As she got older, the books became pens and notebooks, which she filled with stories and poetry. For as long as she remembers, she has been writing and dreaming up stories. Seems writing was her destiny.

Donya loves music and often finds inspiration for her stories in the wide range of music she listens to. Nothing like a little Korn to propel the angst in a scene, or Enya to evoke softer and more romantic storylines.

    I have not yet read AKM, but I read the interview . I really enjoyed the interview, especially Micah’s mind reading ability. I also liked the sense of humor between the participants. I love paranormal romance and AKM will definitely be going on my TBR list. Thanks for the great giveaway!

      Oh no! Sorry if that wasn’t clear in the interview header. I tried to warn people away before they get into it in case they haven’t read up through Rebel Obsession yet…
      “Note that this interview takes place just after the events of Rebel Obsession and does contain spoilers for all the storyline up through the end of that book!”

      Hopefully it inspired you to keep reading!! <3

    My favorite part of the interview is getting an more in depth look at our favorite characters and their world. I have read all books in tye series to date and not so patiently awaiting Return of the Assassin, but I am trying! Thanks for the giveaway and I hope you continue to give us more in what is one of my favorite series ever!

    sounds fantastic! Thanks for sharing and congrats to Donna on the milestone!

  • April 1, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    I’m glad everyone seems to be enjoying the interview so far. Micah and Trace had fun giving it. Micah is still rubbing his feet, though, but only to be a smart-ass. He says Kitty can come back and visit any time. And Trace is still grousing about Cordray. I doubt those two will EVER get along.

    My favorite part of the interview? Every single bit of Micah and Trace. Donya knows my slight *pinches thumb and finger* obsession with both those males.

    I love that she asked if Micah was attracted to Trace and the ending. Can’t wait to see where this goes next!! I <3 AKM

  • April 2, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    I can’t wait to see where it goes, as well, Joni. LOL. My characters tend to throw me around once I start writing, but whatever happens, Micah will always…and I mean always…stay in control. I think. Ha!

    Micah and Trace can aure make one breathless. You should check out all of the wonderful Males in the AKM series. The stories are all different and I loved them all. Exciting!

    I am a big AKM fan of the series. I have read all the books except the latest release which I have been dying to get to. I loved the interview and hearing all about the different characters special talents. I love how sexy the series is and the writing was really good. sdylion(at)gmail(dot)com

    i haven’t read any of thise series yet, but I’m intrigued by the relationship between vampires and shifters. Most authors (that I have read) stck with either one or the other, but the incorporation of both into the story lines has put this series next on my list!!! I can;t wait!

  • Amanda
    April 7, 2013 at 11:40 am

    I can’t wait to see how the relationships unfold! I have only read the first book in the series, but it grabbed me and I couldn’t put it down. Micah is a very intriguing character with his own set of unique issues that I think may impact him in future books.

  • Christy Perry

    I have not read this series yet, just added them to my TBR. All the reviews and comments confirm that these books are going to be really good reads that you will be able to get lost in. Thank you for sharing the interview and the chance to win, looking forward to reading them and more of your work 🙂

    • April 8, 2013 at 11:55 pm

      Congratulations to Christy P. on winning the complete ebook set of the All the King’s Men series! You’re gonna love em!

      Thanks SO MUCH to all of you for coming out to celebrate Micah’s first anniversary (oh, okay, fine – Rise of the Fallen’s first anniversary!) and a huge thank you goes to Donya Lynne for letting me play in her awesome little sandbox. *grin*
