After Dark by Emi Gayle: Interview & Giveaway

Welcome to Author Emi Gayle

Emi Gayle just wants to be young again. She lives vicariously through her youthful characters, while simultaneously acting as chief-Mom to her teenaged son and searching for a way to keep her two daughters from ever reaching the dreaded teen years.

Ironically, those years were some of Emi’s favorite times. She met the man of her dreams at 14, was engaged to him at 19, married him at 20 and she’s still in love with him to this day. She’ll never forget what it was like to fall in love at such a young age — emotions she wants everyone to feel.


If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?
Future. We already know what happened in the past. I want the sneak peek into what’s coming.

What is one book everyone should read?
After Dark, of course! 🙂

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Mint Chocolate chip (and now, despite it being 40 degrees outside, I must go get some!)

One food you would never eat?
Anything still alive. ICK!

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
If you’ve ever had the chance to change careers or change your future plans, be thankful, because Mac Thorne will not get that chance—ever—want to see why?

Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects? 
Of course! Book 2 in this trilogy (Day After) just went to my editor for final line edits!

Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published.
The SQUEES from fans. Wow. Talk about a confidence boost. They rock my world.

Can you see yourself in any of your characters?
I see myself in all my characters – but just little pieces, nothing ‘whole’

Favorite Food?

How do you react to a bad review?
My chest gets tight. My eyes water. I wonder why I can’t please everyone and then I get a friend to tell me to stop reading reviews and about a day later, I’m over it. 🙂

You have won one million dollars what is the first thing that you would buy?
I would have a set of diagonal bookcases built in my sitting room. Yup. I’m just waiting for my lottery ticket to win so I can have them

What do you do in your free time? 
Be a mom and work my real job to pay the bills.

What is your guilty pleasure?
Pedicures and manicures.

What TV show/movie/book do you watch/read that you’d be embarrassed to admit?

If you had 24 hours alone how would you spend it?
Probably NOT doing the one thing I’d want to be doing. I’d say “I’m going to write” and then get distracted with everything else.

Print or Ebook?

Sweet or Salty?

PC or Mac?

Cats or Dog?

Truth or Dare?

After Dark by Emi Gayle

What eighteen year old Mac Thorne doesn’t know will probably kill her.

In exactly eight months, five days, three hours and thirteen minutes, Mac has to choose what she’ll be for the rest of her life.

She has no choice but to pick. As a Changeling, it’s her birthright. To Mac, it’s a birthchore. Like going to school with humans, interacting with humans, and pretending to be human during the pesky daylight hours.

Once darkness descends, Mac can change into any supernatural form that exists — which makes her as happy as she can be. That is, until Winn Thomas, the biggest geek in her senior class figures out there’s more to what hides in the dark than most are willing to acknowledge.

In this first of the 19th Year Trilogy, Winn might know more about Mac than even she does, and that knowledge could end their lives, unless Mac ensures the powers-that-be have no choice but to keep him around.

“Winn and Mac were perfect for each other in every way possible. It was like two magnets finally finding each other and connecting.” — Good Choice Reading

“Talk about can’t put down…I accidentally opened this one instead of the book I was scheduled to read. Made the mistake of reading the first paragraph — and I have not been able to put my iPad down since!” — Parajunkee
