I absolutely loved The Near Witch (for proof, click here) and for my stop on The Near Witch Blog Tour, I got to interview the amazing and adorable author, Victoria Schwab. Magic and witches feature prominently in her debut so I decided to ask Victoria seven magic and witch related "if" questions (seven because it is the most magical number). Hope you enjoy! ^_^
WQ = Writer Quirk
VS = Victoria Schwab
WQ: If you were to star as the witch in a fairytale, which kind of witch would you be?
VS: Considering I tend to root for villains, am power-hungry, and have an epic evil laugh, I'm going for Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty.
WQ: If you could have a magical animal as a friend, what kind of animal would you choose?
VS: A really, really big talking wolf, like in Princess Mononoke.
WQ: If you had only one spell to help you around the house, what chore would you use it on?
VS: Laundry. I really, really hate doing laundry.
WQ: If you could magic items into your possession, what would you conjure first?
VS: Tea. If I were REALLY powerful, I'd magic a full tea tray complete with pot, cups, scones, and sandwiches and tea cakes. I do love tea.
WQ: If you had the ability to magically travel to your favorite place, what kind of magical transport would you use?
VS: TARDIS, obviously. I know we're blurring the lines of magic and sci-fi here, but COME ON. TARDIS. Especially if I could magic a David Tennant into it to keep me company.
WQ: If you could turn a fictional character into a real being, who would you magic into our world?
VS: Magnus Bane from The Mortal Instruments. Oh, oh, oh, and the hot vampires from The Vampire Diaries. Yeah, that's right, ALL of them.
WQ: If you had to go toe to toe with the Wicked Witch, how would you win?
VS: That's hard. Her evil laugh is almost as good as mine and I reaaaaaaally don't like monkeys. I think I'd have to magic a narwhal sidekick, and have them douse her with arctic water. Either the cold will get or, or the melting will.
A big thank you to Victoria for playing along and giving great answers! I am right there with the David Tennant, narwhals, and smexy vamps! And Victoria, if you want to share some ARCs of your upcoming novels (The Archived and Vicious) I will gladly do all your laundry. ^_^ I may not be magical but I will work for words!
And now for the giveaway! Using the Rafflecopter widget below, you can enter to win a signed hardcover edition of The Near Witch. But not only is this copy signed and comes with a signed bookmark, Victoria also drew a NARWHAL in it! Isn't is beautimous?!
All the standard WQ rules (found here) apply.
Good luck and thanks for reading!
