Swag September Author Spotlight and Giveaway ~ Emily Godwin

Spotlight -- Emily Godwin

Emily Godwin is a Young Adult author. She enjoys writing, painting, and sewing her own line of non-evil voodoo dolls. She's a Slytherin, trying to disguise herself as a Hufflepuff, and wishes she could read herself into books.



1. What made you decide to be a writer?
* I had too many voices floating around in my head demanding that their stories be told.

2. What made you decide to go down the paranormal route when it comes to your books?
* I had read a children's book about five or six years ago, and in it, there was a certain paranormal band. I thought it was the coolest thing ever, so I created my own band and stuck some paranormal elements throughout my series for it. I have three future books planned which are more fantasy themed because I love fantasy books. My book Behind the Wooden Door is set more in a medieval time. So, I write all kind of crazy books. Whatever comes to me!

3. Are you working on writing anything right now?
* I've started three books in the last month. I hate choosing. I'm probably going to stick with trying to get Until We Die (Mutilated #2) out soon, though.

4. If you had to pick one band member to date from Mutilated Arteries, which one would you pick?
* Definitely either Banshee or Nightmare. I love them both, but I think I would be happier with Nightmare.

5. Is there anything else you would like to tell us??
* Make sure you pick up Nikki Godwin's books along with mine! You'll find some pretty awesome cross-overs in them!

And thank you so much for having me on your blog! 

Mutilate My Heart

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes and Noble |

Punk rock band Mutilated Arteries has been seventeen-year-old Becca's world (aka obsession) for the last year. When the band schedules a concert in her hometown, she and her best friend Carli are the first ones in line to buy tickets. The night is everything she expects it to be and more, especially after making friends with the new super-cute bassist, Sketch.

Becca's mom warns her not to fall for a rock star because rock stars are always on the road - or they die in a plane crash, like her mom's favorite band did twenty-something years ago. But after the band's tour bus breaks down and they're stuck hanging out in Roizen Hills for a week, it's hard for Becca not to fall for Sketch and his caricature drawings and toxic green eyes.

Becca knows Sketch is leaving as soon as the bus is fixed, and she can't be his fan-turned-girlfriend anyway because of the lead singer's "No Girlfriends" rule. Plus, there's something strange about the guys that Becca can't quite decipher... like how they won't reveal their real names, their always-changing odd appearances, and the guitarist's obsession with blood and zombies. Still, Becca wants nothing more than for Sketch to mutilate her heart...but it just might not be in a way she expects.

Paper and String

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes and Noble |

It's hard to make friends in a small Minnesota town when the most entertainment around is watching the snow fall. Socially awkward Nadia Knight doesn't know how she can live up to the promise she made her brother to make friends before summer when the only people she spends time with are the dead.

Between studying mortuary sciences and going to her best friend's musical gigs, she runs into - literally, with her car - a cute punk rocker named Anthony, although his friends call him Banshee. And he might just be the friend she's been waiting to make...and more.

But Anthony has a secret more fragile than paper and string.

Behind The Wooden Door

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes and Noble |

When an army of soldiers marches through her castle doors, Princess Lanie is plagued with thoughts of blood, death, and sorrow. War is something she never fathomed happening in her lifetime. Falling in love with the army's commander, Tristan, wasn't part of the plan either. He's smart-mouthed, arrogant, and everything her tyrant father would disapprove of. After all, Tristan's place is on the battlefield, not a throne.

After the kingdom's fortune teller predicts a deadly outcome, Lanie knows her secret romance is an execution waiting to happen. She has to do something - fast - because the war path has redirected toward her.
