Angeline Kace's Guest Post!

PhotobucketI was super excited when Angeline wanted to include me in her blog tour for the debut of the first book in her Vampire Born Trilogy, Descended by Blood! If you haven't met Angeline, then she is someone you will have to get to know! You can find her blog at and

Angeline is one of my faves to just chat with on twitter. She is super funny and very sweet! We have this little joke that we now include in a lot of our tweets and I even talked about in another blog post. The joke came about one night when Angeline got a sugar high and was super delirious on Swedish Fish. I think she said she only ate 5! LoL... So I started a little chat with her about it. In one of her tweets during her sugar high she was meaning to tweet OMG and she tweeted PMg...we both found it pretty funny so from this point on we always say PMg instead of OMG to each-other. I have tried to come up with something that PMg would mean, but I haven't come up with that one yet, so if you have any suggestions, send over the 411!

Once again I wanted something super fun and unique for her blog tour stop so I asked her a question and here it is.

Bookluvr Mindy: You are kidnapped and dropped off on a island. You are then approached by a group of talking animals and they tell you that you have to pick an animal that you will be transformed into for the rest of your life. If you don't choose, you will be turned into something that you most fear. What animal would you choose and why? What animals would the characters in your book choose and why? AND what animal would you most fear to be turned into?

Angeline's Reply:
PhotobucketWow! This would creep me out in real life. I would have to say I would like to be turned into a monkey. I've liked monkeys for as long as I can remember. In elementary, we had to write a book, complete with pictures drawn by us of our animals (I must say I had mad skills with the red crayon), and I did the orangutan. Born to Be Wild, about a gorilla, was my favorite movie when I was younger. I watched it all the time, and every time I watched it, I'd cry. Plus, I think monkeys are the closest thing to humans that there is. I mean, a dolphin's smart, but I would NOT want to live under water.
Mindy's comment: Mindy's comment: "As a kid I ♥♥♥ monkeys. When I moved out into my first apartment I had so many monkeys that they completely covered the floor in my walk-in-closet and I was determined that one day I would have a spider monkey as a pet.”

PhotobucketBrooke: "Oh, this is a tricky one. I've always thought it would be cool to be a bird. To be able to fly, and see everything with such excellent eyesight would be amazing. I wouldn't want to be just any bird, though. I would prefer to be a bird of prey. That way, I'm the hunter, not the hunted. So, either an Eagle or a Falcon: a Falcon because they're FAST, and an eagle because they sometimes hunt as a team. I guess I would have to go with Eagle because if they could hunt with another Eagle, then that means that they're not completely solitary creatures. I like to have someone around, so I think that would be the best fit for me. And then if Kaitlynn chose the same thing, we could be a hard core Eagle hunting team."
Mindy’s comment: “Pwitty bwird…pwitty bwird. I don’t know about being a bird, when I think of flying all I think about is how badly I get motion sick.”

PhotobucketJaren: "Well, speed is revered in lacrosse, so I would have to say I'd choose to be a cheetah. I'm always working on increasing how fast I can run, so if I had to choose an animal to be turned into, I would like to pick something where I didn't have to work so hard to be fast."
Mindy’s comment: “Oooo! Cheetahs are freakin’ awesome! And I am highly impatient so being able to get somewhere fast would be fabulous. My impatience is the reason I have had so many speeding tickets and my license was taken away when I was 17.”

PhotobucketMirko: "Ah, well first, I would consider slashing each group member's throat. But if that was out of the question, I would have to choose a crocodile. They've been around for ages, so they have the whole survival thing down. They're basically running around all the time with shields, you know, because their skin is so rough and they have the plates along their head and backs for protection. And they run fast. They're mostly water creatures, but they still do a top job of surviving on land. Crocodiles are also fierce animals. They have been known to attack and kill sharks. That's how I would want to be known if I were an animal. Fierce."
Mindy’s comment channeling Steve Irwin: “Crikey mate!! She’s a beauty!”

PhotobucketKaitlynn: "I would have to brain storm with Brooke to make sure we chose the same thing. But I would suggest that we both become meerkats. Have you seen that show, Meerkat Manor? They have a social structure and everything. Their like little humans, but with fur and claws. And they appear to be pretty smart animals, too."
Mindy’s comment: “I haven’t seen Meerkat Manor but I found a trailer and it made me chuckle so I added it below.”

PhotobucketAngeline's Fear: Okay, so what animal would I fear to be turned into? There are a lot of animals that I would hate to be, but I would have to say a sloth beats out all of them. They are so slow, and their whole day is spent searching for food and eating it, just so they can maintain the treacherous searches for food. You know that mid-afternoon crash you get? Where all you can think about is putting your head down on your desk and passing out, and it takes every ounce of strength to keep your eyes from fluttering and then closing for good? Well, that's how I imagine a life as a sloth would be. All day long. Every, single day. I would probably just give up and go to sleep for good. Screw that struggle. That would be torture.
Mindy’s comment: “PMg! I don’t think I could handle a life like that! I think I would rather lay down and starve to death!”

Thank you so much for having me, Mindy! You always come up with the most creative things for your blog tours, and it has certainly been an honor for me to stop here today.

It's me Mindy again! Isn't she fabulous and super creative! I ♥ Angeline Kace and I think we could be life long buddies. Hopefully we can meet one day. So be sure to check our Angeline’s blog at and and grab a copy of Descended by Blood!

Dude... that was wicked creepy!!

Then again... technically I'm probably WICKED creepy for thinking Mirko's answer was WAY freaking HOT!

Good thing Ang loves me and my creepy ways... ;) And I'd soooo be a flamingo. Duh- they're PINK.

Liss Martz said...

Love this post! I have a question for Angelina!
How did you came up with the tittle? Did you had more than one tittle in your mind or you just had this one? =)

Angeline Kace said...

@Ashley~ Hahaha! That's awesome!

@Lissette~ Thank you! Descended by Blood was the only title I had for the book. I knew I wanted "Blood" in the title because it is about vampires and because the story is all about what the main character's, Brooke, blood is made up of, or her heritage. So, when I figured out a way to convey those 2 things, the title was perfect, and I kept it. Thank you for your question! ;)

Jackie said...

Very entertaining post! I love the different character's answers, too. Especially Mirko - I am dying to read more about him. ;)

anme said...

Reading all of the responses to the question was interesting and gave me some insight into what the characters might be like in the book.

My nightmare animal would be a maggot, feasting on decaying matter- ew.

Hey Angeline! Love this post! Here are my comments LOL!:

“My favorite orangutan is King Louie from The Jungle Book!”

“I always wanted to be one of those little tweety birds who pesters the heck out of those eagles and falcons!”

“Uh . . . I’m kinda more like a sloth than a cheetah! Built for comfort, not speed!”

“I can’t top the Steve Irwin channeling! One of my faves . . . aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh I hate stingrays!!!”

“My fear would be the animal Kaitlynn chose. Yikes! Those Meerkats are always scratching! That means they’re infested with fleas . . . and I hate those little suckers more than I hate stingrays!!!”

Good luck on the release of Descended by Blood!

Crikey Angeline! I just started reading the first chapter of Descended by Blood and Kaitlynn makes a reference to Steve Irwin! Nice!!!!!!

OK, three serious questions . . . No. 1: What's your favorite time of the day and favorite place to write? (OK, that's really two, but I'm not an Accounting major!) No. 2: Are any of your characters based on real-life people you know? And, No. 3: What triggered your idea for the story-line of Descended by Blood?

That was a fun post! I think I'd like to be a cat owned by someone like me, since they are super lazy and eat all the food they want, and I'd be afraid to be a snake, they scare me a little. Thanks! Artesia at comcast dot net

Angeline Kace said...

@JLynn~ Thanks for stopping by! I'm glad you enjoyed it! ;)

@Melora~ Yikes! Being a maggot would be pretty nasty! I'm disgusted thinking about it. Thanks a lot for that. lol

@Joe~ Hahaha! I LOVED the Jungle Book when I was younger! Thanks for stopping by as well!

@Ronyka7~ I'm glad you liked it! Thanks for dropping by! ;)

@Lisa~ Umm, I would be one of those high end Nikes. Oh! Or maybe Air Jordans! I remember when I was younger, those were the cool shoes to have! And they were expensive! My fav shoes when I was younger were those "Street Lights", I think we called them. You walk and they have lights that light up with each step. Those were fun.

@ Joe~ Hello again! My fav time of day is late afternoon. That's usually when I write as well. My muse seems to wake up around that time ;) (I AM an accounting major lol) 2- I started out with qualities in people that I knew, but the characters grew into their own people, so they don't resemble anyone I know now. 3- I wanted to write about vampires, but I didn't want to go the virus route, and I wanted it to be sort of realistic. How would a teenager REALLY act if she found out she was vampire? Thanks for stopping by as well!

Angeline Kace said...

Hi Jkrowyn! A cat would be awesome! They kind of just do what they want! And as long as you have an owner that takes good care of you, that is kind of the ideal life huh? Except the fur balls. Not sure that would be much fun ;)

Jane said...

That was very entertaining, I loved the responses. I think I'd be a leopard or a jaguar.

I love the book title and cover by the way!

Bookworm Lisa said...

What a fun and creative blog post. It's fun to get into the head of some of the characters and see how unique they are. Thanks for sharing.
