Locks: Rapunzel Unhinged by Sarah J. Pepper - Giveaway + Interview

Locks: Rapunzel Unhinged
by Sarah J. Pepper

Rapunzel isn’t the stereotypical Damsel in Distress. Her Bad-Boy Prince Charming is a renowned mercenary, and their Happy Ending plays out like a bad movie. However, she is determined to breakout from her tower prison—love be damned—and do it in a fabulous pair of heels.

Gunned down by the Mercenary, the deadliest assassin in The Badass Archives, isn’t exactly Rapunzel’s end-game. Falling for him isn’t either, but his Rated-R demeanor is strangely charming. Even though most girls wouldn’t fall for their captors, Rapunzel isn’t like most dames. Her major girl-boner for the Mercenary is so pathetic it verges on cliché. Yet, in spite of his appeal, Rapunzel must escape before she’s locked away in the Château de Immortelle’s highest tower—forever.

I specialize in dark, paranormal romance - think "happy ever after" but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn't only filled with hugs, kisses, bunnies, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It's in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of - both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn't always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn't mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit?



Q & A with Author Sarah J. Pepper

Can you tell us a little bit about your main characters?
Rapunzel isn't your stereotypical damsel in distress. She's a bad-ass cookie with a chip on her shoulder. Of course there is the wicked hair and lover boy prince charming.... but no one is what it seems. 

How long have you been writing, and when did you first consider yourself an author?

I've been scribbling my thoughts for a few years now (anything to procrastinate, lol) I never really consider myself an author per se (my grammar and spelling is too terrible for that, lol) (that's why I have a great team of editors!!!) but I can tell a good story.

What is the best advice you have been given?
I don't know about best, but in the "book biz" I tell others and have been told myself, repetitively and usually with chocolate, not to take anything too hard. People will either love or hate your book. Sales will suck at times. Reviews can kill a novel. Don't read reviews. Read every review but don't take them personally. And most of all, don't talk to your imaginary friends in public ;)

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I didn't know what I wanted to be, and still don't. I don't want to be just one person. As a child (and still now) I wanted to change the world.... I guess I do that one page at a time. :)

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
Greece. I have a bit of an obsession with classical mythology.

If you could have any superpower, what would you choose? 
Mind reading- but only if I could turn it off at times. 

Which do you prefer: hard/paperbacks or ebooks?
Depends on the occasion. For vaca, I like ebooks. I buy Hardies for novels I LOVE and Paperbacks for series I follow.

What book are you reading now? 
Just finished A Broken Us by Amy Daws. It's not my normal ready style but the author is funny as hell and the bugger made me cry!!!
