Uh. . .I once convinced about 5,000+ people to call me Supreme Overlord. . . Actually, in elementary school, I used to play a lot of pranks on my boyfriend at the time. I baked some chocolate chip cookies laced with hot sauce and peppers. He ate them. On a road trip. Oops.

Pick one of your characters to play a prank on. Who are they? What is the prank? And how do they react?

I prank Hannah/Lucy in Hollow Towns. The pranks won’t stop in the sequel. Sorry Lucy.. .you’re a sweetie. . .but your innocence must be corrupted.

What is your name?

Zoltán Pósfai https://www.goodreads.com/witchhunter

Are you typically the class clown or the butt of jokes?

Class clown

Tell us a little about the book(s) you are offering in three sentences or less.

Concentrating on a single goal can be very effective, but also devastating. It sweeps everything in its way and builds tension. What if the hidden world the hunter knew about, had another layer?

Since we’re holding the Free & Bargain Book event on April Fools day, tell us about the best prank you ever played or the best prank played on you.

I’m more into jokes than pranks, but here it goes: Many years ago we were on excursion with my class by bus in Italy. We had a short stop at a restaurant with the restrooms at the back. By some weird idea the flush was a not-so-visible button and there was a traditionally placed chain which in turn was an alarm. Leaving the place I saw someone from the bus just arriving and told him to pull the chain multiple times because it doesn’t seem to work well. About a minute later, the whole bus watched the restaurant owner going back showcasing a nice assortment of Italian curses and analyzing someones mental state.

Pick one of your characters to play a prank on. Who are they? What is the prank? And how do they react?

The target of the prank would definitely be Conley, the hunter who is able to act well during investigation, but never really jokes. On the other hand, Scarlet, the main protagonist witch, is a much livelier person even if a loner by fate. She actually does a little prank on him in the book. She asks this walking investigation and killing machine to write her a poem and presents it as a challenge to cut off the possibility of retreat. Pranks and jokes can be important to find someone’s hidden human side.

After being discovered by vampire hunters, Taku Kokawa and his lover Thane Bremen are forced to flee their home in Japan to settle in Norfield, England. Thane is haunted by the events in Tokyo and suffers from reoccurring nightmares. Yet unknown to Thane there is more to those events than he is aware of and as a consequence Taku is struggling against something much darker, something that could ultimately destroy him.

Since we’re holding the Free & Bargain Book event on April Fools day, tell us about the best prank you ever played or the best prank played on you.

I’m usually the one playing pranks so the time that comes to mind is when my sister got her own back. We were playing Mario Kart on the N64 and when I went to the bathroom, she switched the controllers around. When I came back and we resumed the race I was looking at what I thought was my screen but my character wasn’t reacting to the controls I was pressing! Then I started laughing at the other screen and what I thought was her character crashing into everything. It took me ages to figure out what she’d done!

What is your name?

Ellison Blackburn https://www.goodreads.com/EllisonBlackburn

Are you typically the class clown or the butt of jokes?

Ha-ha! You said butt!

Tell us a little about the book(s) you are offering in three sentences or less.

Regeneration X, Progeny, and After Effect, the trilogy that makes up the Regeneration Chronicles, follow the lives of Charley and Emery through the trials and tribulations of consequence, spanning several centuries. Each book is a thoughtful science-fiction tale, beginning with Charley’s frame of mind and the inception of a medical procedure called Renovation or cellular regeneration. And you’ll just have to read the series for the adventures in between and to see how the story ends.

Since we’re holding the Free & Bargain Book event on April Fools day, tell us about the best prank you ever played or the best prank played on you.

When I was very young, after tagging along the neighborhood kids much older than me for years I was finally asked to prove my worthiness in order to be a part of the “in” crowd. Promised an invitation to a pizza party from a popular girl four years older than me, I was asked to climb a very tall maple tree in my front yard, something all of them knew I couldn’t do. As the crew took off on their bikes I stared up at the tree and when they were out of sight I ran indoors and asked my dad to prop a ladder next to that tree. I climbed up and then asked him to take it away. I sat in that tree for over an hour until the group returned. I yelled out to draw attention to myself and my amazing feat, heard a single “Good Job!” as my short-lived reward. When each girl tossed her bike on the lawn in front of her house and ran inside for lunchtime I sat there perched on a limb unsure of what to do. For one, I had no way of getting down from that tree without calling for my dad. Two, what if someone saw him help me? And three, my adolescent brain told me I needed, at least, one other witness. After a long wait, I yelled for my father. I’d waited too long. Busted! And no pizza party invite for me. So, my prank reversed upon me.

What is your name?

  1. L. Bynum https://www.goodreads.com/slbynum

Are you typically the class clown or the butt of jokes?

Ha-ha! You said butt!

Tell us a little about the book(s) you are offering in three sentences or less.

It is the year 2007, and Abigail is writing a blog detailing her experience with nightmares that are premonitions of terrible accidents. While trying to determine the cause of the dreams, her life slowly unravels as tragedies befall her family and friends, despite how she tries to save them.

Since we’re holding the Free & Bargain Book event on April Fools day, tell us about the best prank you ever played or the best prank played on you.

One time I put a rubberband around the sprayer near the kitchen sink. As soon as my mom turned on the faucet, she got soaking wet!

Pick one of your characters to play a prank on. Who are they? What is the prank? And how do they react?

Brendon, Abigail’s brother. He is always cracking jokes on people, so it would be fun to get him back. I would probably trick him into eating something crazy, like something smothered in hot sauce. His face would turn red and he would desperately search for something to drink, pissed at me the whole time. But afterwards we’d have a good laugh about it, and then I’d have to watch my back because he would be waiting to seek revenge!

What is your name?

Amanda Siegrist https://www.goodreads.com/AmandaSiegrist

Are you typically the class clown or the butt of jokes?

Ha-ha! You said butt!

Tell us a little about the book(s) you are offering in three sentences or less.

I’m offering two romance novels, one contemporary and one full of suspense. If you’re looking for a happily ever after, you will get it in both of these novels. I’m also offering a short story mystery novel that will send the chills up and down your spine!

Since we’re holding the Free & Bargain Book event on April Fools day, tell us about the best prank you ever played or the best prank played on you.

I’m not really a prankster, but my husband enjoys a good laugh. We went to Buffalo Wild Wings one day with his parents and brought the food home. He always gets the blazin’ wings, while his dad got the mild wings. When we got home he switched one of his wings with his dads. We sat down to eat and waited on the edge of our seats for his dad to bite into the secret. When his dad finally started to eat the blazin’ wing, he made a comment how unusually spicy the wings were. My husband started to laugh when his dad showed signs of how spicy it truly was. When my husband confessed, his dad laughed with him, but his mom said not to do that again.

Pick one of your characters to play a prank on. Who are they? What is the prank? And how do they react?

I think I would pick Austin, from Trust In Love, to play a prank on his brother Zane. Austin’s full of fun and laughter, while his brother is more serious. I think it would be hilarious if Austin put manure in Zane’s boots. Zane would certainly be upset and probably throw the manure at Austin in retaliation. Those two, when they argue, tend to throw manure instead of punches.

What is your name?

Quoleena Sbrocca https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/10792088.Quoleena_Sbrocca

Are you typically the class clown or the butt of jokes?

Ha-ha! You said butt!

Tell us a little about the book(s) you are offering in three sentences or less.

The Crossing Hour #1 and #2 are past-to-present time travel books in which the traveler awakens in the future, unaware of what just happened to them. Rayne: Luminescence is a futuristic fantasy book in a world where an evolved species of humans all possess a mystical ability.

Since we’re holding the Free & Bargain Book event on April Fools day, tell us about the best prank you ever played or the best prank played on you.

There’s the old swapping salt for sugar (in my mom’s coffee when I was in high school), and tying a rubber band around the kitchen sink sprayer (again, for the benefit of my mom when I was in high school).

Pick one of your characters to play a prank on. Who are they? What is the prank? And how do they react?

I’m playing a prank on Rayne’s dad, Sir Roman. He’s a super tight-arse, pretentious SOB, so I don’t feel about about this at all. His ability is reading the emotions of others. I would channel only good and loving thoughts and invite him to read my emotions. After he goes on incessantly about how he just knew I thought how wise, handsome, and well-liked he is, I’d cackle and say, “Sorry, Sir Roman, but I was thinking of Rayne’s best friend, Rafe.” (It would sting ’cause Rayne’s dad pretty much hates Rafe.) Okay, so that’s more mean than a prank, but trust me, after everything he’s done, he deserves way more than that.
