Author Interview & Ebook Giveaway: Fall for You by Cecilia Gray

Welcome to Author Cecilia Gray

Cecilia Gray writes fun, flirty fiction. Her stories have been praised for being well-written, original, realistic, witty and other complimentary adjectives which make her blush.

The first two titles (A DELIGHTFUL ARRANGEMENT and AN ILLICIT ENGAGEMENT) of her regency-inspired romantic novella series are currently on the Amazon bestseller list for regency romance and Amazon UK bestseller list for historical romance.

Her newest release, FALL FOR YOU, marks her young-adult debut and is the first of six modern Jane Austen retellings set in a posh all-girls California boarding school which has just been open to (drumroll please..) boys! She’d love for you to read it. Which is why she’s giving away a digital copy.

Interview:
Night owl, or early bird?
Definitely a night owl, which is a good thing otherwise my books would never get written since I work during the day. I tend to get a second wind around ten at night which can take me through to two or three in the morning. Not all of that time gets used for writing. I also use it to read.

If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
To not need sleep at all! Maybe my house would actually get clean…

What is your dream cast for your book?
Emma Stone!! If Emma Stone could somehow play every character part that would be ingenious. She’s so talented and able to infuse an immediate likability into any character. In FALL FOR YOU, the heroine, Lizzie (based on Pride & Prejudice’s Elizabeth Bennet) makes some prideful assumptions about Dante, a hot, new guy in her class and does some unlikable things as a result – but Emma Stone would ensure you’re still rooting for her!

If a movie was made about your life, who would you want to play the lead role and why?
Can I ditto my answer above? Definitely Emma Stone. Not that there is any physical resemblance to be had, unfortunately.

How do you react to a bad review?
Even a bad review makes me clap my hands and think, “YAY! Someone read my book!!! And cared!”
I’m actually giving away a Free Kindle and Free Nook Tablet, each to anyone who reviews one of my books between now and June 15th (http://www.ceciliagray.com/free/) because I get so excited when someone reviews my book – good or bad.

You have won one million dollars what is the first thing that you would buy?
GUM! Then I’d plant a big smackeroo on the nearest stranger. That’s the kind of thing you have to do if you win the lottery.

Finish the sentence- one book I wish I had written is….
Any of Jane Austen’s books. 🙂

If you could jump in to a book, and live in that world.. which would it be?
Harry Potter – but only if I wasn’t a Muggle and preferably after the Dark Lord had been defeated.

What is you favorite way to spend a rainy day?
Reading. 🙂 Is there a bumper that stays I’d rather be reading? That’s how I feel most of the time.

Fall for You

Jane Austen meets Pretty Little Liars in this fresh, new young-adult series!
* * *
The last thing that the girls at the elite Jane Austen Academy need is hot guys to flirt with. Please. They need to stay focused on something that lasts much longer: an acceptance letter from an Ivy.
But over the summer the school has been sold, and like it or not, the guys are coming. And it’s about to turn the Academy–and the lives of its students–totally upside down…* * *
To say Lizzie and Dante are polar opposites is the understatement of the century. He’s a snooty Exeter transfer with more money than Google. She’s a driven study-a-holic barely keeping up with tuition. It’s obvious that Dante thinks he’s way too good for Lizzie. And Lizzie knows Dante is a snob with a gift for pushing her buttons.
But things are changing fast this year at the Academy. And when Lizzie’s quest to stop those changes blows up in her face, taking her oldest friendship with it, she has nowhere else to turn but to Dante, with his killer blue eyes, his crazy-sexy smile, and his secrets… Secrets Lizzie can’t seem to leave alone, no matter how hard she tries…
