Giveaway: $25 Amazon or Paypal and Interview with Wisteria author Bisi Leyton: Blog Tour

Wisteria by Bisi Leyton
Sixteen year old Wisteria Kuti has two options—track the infected around the Isle of Smythe or leave the only known safe haven and face a world infested with flesh eating biters. But even with well-armed trackers, things go wrong and Wisteria ends up alone facing certain death, until she is rescued by the mysterious Bach. Uninfected, Bach is able to survive among the hordes of living dead.
Seventeen year old Bach, from a race known as The Family, has no interest in human affairs. He was sent here to complete his Great Walk and return home as a man—as a Sen Son. The Family regard humans as Dog People, but Bach is drawn to this Terran girl, whom he has never seen before, but somehow knows.
Hunted by flesh eaters, cannibals, and the mysterious blood thirsty group called Red Phoenix, Wisteria and Bach make their way back to the Isle of Smythe, a community built on secrets and lies.

interview with Blkosiner's Book Blog

--The Twitter version: tell us about your book in 140 characters or less.
Ordinary girl, extra-ordinary destiny

--How did you get the idea for the story?
I wanted to write a story about a girl was average or a little less than average. She’s not prettiest, skinniest, tallest or most kick ass. She’s just a girl stuck in her situation and trying to make the best of it.

--Do you have any other works in progress? Any teasers or release dates?
I’m currently outlining Hysteria (Wisteria Series #4). It will be the last book in the Wisteria series.  This book should wrap up most of the loose ends in the series as well as leave the reader with even more questions. Aside from young adult paranormal romance, I’m working  on an historical romance series called 20 Guineas.  Based in colonial Lagos, it is about a girl who’s trying to grow up without a mother in a 1950s polygamous home. The girl foolishly falls in love with an English student and son of her employer.

--What are some of your favorite books? Do you still have much time to read?
I don’t have a lot of time to read as I also have a full time job, but when I do, I like any interracial romance, graphic novels like Judge Dredd, historical romances and anything that will make me laugh.

Dr Suess is and has always been my favorite author. Even till today, I still read some of kid’s books, I don’t know why.  As far as adult writers, I have to say Jeffery Archer because I find his writing refreshing and often very touching. I would recommend anyone to read his short story Eye of the Beholder.

--Do you need anything to write (music, coffee, etc)? Are there any songs on your playlist- songs that inspired you or that were playing while you wrote?
Having the television on helps my writing.  I don’t know why, but I just like having it on in the background.

--If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
I’d love to be able to freeze time without aging.

--What is one thing you would tell your 15 year old self?
Go out more and kiss more boys. I was so shy.

--Is there anything else you want to add or say to your readers?
I want to thank them for all their support and I hope they enjoy Wisteria.
