We are excited to have here with us two of the talented ladies from the KICKING IT anthology, which releases December 3.  Please help us welcome Rachel Caine and Lucienne Diver!

What footwear is your character wearing in Kicking It?

Rachel Caine: Cursed cowboy boots. Which might be redundant.

Lucienne Diver: My character is wearing silver stiletto boots with Plexiglas heels.  They are her idea the way the Wicked Witch of the West would embrace dancing in the rain with her flying monkeys.

What color is your favorite pair of boots?

Rachel Caine: Red!

Lucienne Diver: Black. My favorite pair would have to be the thigh highs.  I think my husband would agree.

What type of boots do you prefer? Cowboy boots? Riding boots? Biker-boots? Over-the-knee dominatrix boots? Do share!

Rachel Caine: I think they have to be situationally appropriate. You don’t wear dominatrix boots to a rodeo, do you? Well, maybe you do, because now I want to write that story. But I quite enjoy riding boots and swashbuckling boots. With swash, and buckles.

Lucienne Diver: Over the knee dominatrix boots. Come one, admit it, anyone shocked?

Why did you choose those boots for the story?

Rachel Caine: It’s set in Texas, and cowboy boots seemed appropriate. Plus, I’d just seen someone wearing truly ancient, weathered old boots, and I wondered about them.

Lucienne Diver: When you’re going Fembot meets alien queen, what else is a gal to wear?

Rachel’s Next Release:

TERMINATED, the final Revivalist book, just came out in August; DAYLIGHTERS (Morganville Vampires) is out in November; PRINCE OF SHADOWS, a YA stand-alone, is out in February 2014. Plus, of course, KICKING IT!

DAYLIGHTERSWhile Morganville, Texas, is often a troubled town, Claire Danvers and her friends are looking forward to coming home. But the Morganville they return to isn’t the one they know; it’s become a different place—a deadly one…
Something drastic has happened in Morganville while Claire and her friends were away. The town looks cleaner and happier than they’ve ever seen it before, but when their incoming group is arrested and separated—vampires from humans—they realize that the changes definitely aren’t for the better.

It seems that an organization called the Daylight Foundation has offered the population of Morganville something they’ve never had: hope of a vampire-free future. And while it sounds like salvation—even for the vampires themselves—the truth is far more sinister and deadly.

Now, Claire, Shane and Eve need to find a way to break their friends out of Daylighter custody, before the vampires of Morganville meet their untimely end.…

  1. This is great! I have to wear boring flat boots (and shoes) because of really bad knees but I would love to be able to throw on some killer healed boots!

  2. Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I love Rachel Caine, I haven’t read Any of the other authors yet but am looking forward to reading their work. Thanks for the chance!

    1. She is amazing…I don’t think she’s written a story I haven’t enjoyed and I’m looking forward to the morganville web series!!…the other authors are amazing as well…you will definitely enjoy yourself 🙂

  3. What a fantastic combination of authors! I can’t really wear boots…I tend to live in athletic shoes and flip-flops but I do admire those over-the-knee ones. Thanks for the fun interview and wonderful giveaway and good luck on the release. Happy Holidays to you all!

  4. I love so many of the authors in the anthology. Such great series and books each of has written. I can’t wait to read Luc and Lindseys and Jane’s stories.

  5. I’m still very much into comfort as the major criterion in my footgear. I like looking at kicky shoes though.
