The story of book is so beautiful and the cover so yummy. Teague seems great character.

I am interested in how you use the antibiotics in the story. Probably one of those, do not try this at home moments. Can’t wait to read Fever.

Diana and Gayle–thanks so much for stopping by the interview! (I’m really curious about those antibiotics, too.) Joan’s new website just went live, and you can read the first chapter of FEVER on it: http://joanswan.com/books/fever/#more-8

Hi Diana,

Thanks! I do adore Teague. He’s got a great character arc and it’s so fun to watch.

Appreciate you coming by to say hi!

Hi Gayle!

* Guards her copy really close * I may have a copy but I plan on retweeting and posting about your blog hops to promote your book.

Just earlier today I think I talked an art friend of mine into picking up your book. I am responsible for her dark-hunter obsession, and she said she would look into ordering Fever.

By the way the revamp of your site is gorgeous..absolutely gorgeous!

Theresa Romain said in February 2nd, 2012 at 11:25 am

Thanks, folks, for sharing the FEVER-love. Seems like I’ve been waiting to read this book for ages!

Joan, thanks so much for your time on the Q&A, and for joining us for comments. And congratulations on your beautiful new website–what a great way to kick off release month!

Thanks for coming by and mega-thanks for the personal recommendation! There is absolutely no marketing substitution for word of mouth! It is invaluable!

XOXO!

Glad you like the website!

I’ve been excited about this book since I discovered it last year. February seemed so far away! Now February 2th seems far away!

Thank you for sharing a part of your journey with us today. I am (and I know it is perhaps silly) to learn that the cover tattoos are Teague’s – in my opinion it makes the picture real in my mind when I am reading. I can’t wait to read Fever!

tr-avatar.jpg
Theresa Romain said in February 6th, 2012 at 6:40 pm

Loraine–Thanks for joining us for the interview. Wasn’t Joan a good sport with my questions? ;)

Tracey–I agree, I feel like I’ve been waiting for FEVER forever! (Wow, that is practically a poem.)

Denise–Isn’t it fun when cover art really looks like the character? I understand why the tattoos couldn’t look *exactly* like Teague’s, but they’re definitely important to the story. Though Joan is being a tease and won’t tell us exactly how…

Joan, thanks again for being here! Are you counting down the days until we can find FEVER in stores? (22.)

Joan Swan said in February 9th, 2012 at 3:24 pm

Hi Loraine!

Not very much longer! And hang out on the FEVER blog tour long enough and your chances of winning a copy are pretty good! Plus there’s a grand prize of an eReader too!

Check out the deets at: http://joanswan.com/giveaways/blog-tour-ereader/

Thanks for coming by and good luck!

Hi Tracy!

Time always seems to crawl when you’re waiting for something fun, doesn’t it!

I hope you love FEVER!!

Joan Swan said in February 9th, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Hi Denise!

I love hearing the background on things like this. As you said, it makes everything more real as I read and really enhances the story.

I’m glad it did the same for you. Hope you enjoy Fever!

Thanks, bn100–glad you liked it! Joan’s generously offering copies of FEVER at every one of her blog tour stops this month, so be sure to check out the schedule on her website.

I love the interview, really I do… but I just can’t get that cover out of my mind! Yum Yum! ;) I’m really excited to crack that cover too. (but we won’t tell the hubs how excited I am about it. Our little secret. Lol)

tr-avatar.jpg
Theresa Romain said in February 21st, 2012 at 12:20 pm

Bwyatt–I agree, that cover is an eye-catcher. Sounds like you definitely want a print copy rather than an e-book!

tr-avatar.jpg
Joan Swan said in February 21st, 2012 at 3:13 pm

Thanks bn100, I hope you love Fever!

Joan Swan said in February 21st, 2012 at 3:14 pm

LOL, Bwyatt…they really don’t need to know EVERYTHING! Keeps the mystery alive! Right?

JOYE said in February 23rd, 2012 at 10:39 am

Wow if the inside of the book is as exciting as the cover, it ought to be a good one!

JOYE–I’ll second that. The wait is finally over next week!

Kendra @ Reader's Edyn said in February 26th, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Thanks so much for having Joan, Theresa! The interview was fantastic! I love getting a little glimpse into who the authors are beyond the books. It is easy to make assumptions, but feeling like you know a little about the author makes the book that much more special. :) And I absolutely loved FEVER! I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to review it. :) I am so looking forward to the continuation of the series that I don’t even have a word to describe my excitement. And how could anyone not love that cover? He is awesomesauce times infinity! *nods*

Best of luck to everyone that enters. You are sure to enjoy Teague and Alyssa’s story. :)

Kendra–glad you enjoyed the Q&A. I just read your review of FEVER–awesome! Everyone, the link to Kendra’s review is here: http://readersedyn.blogspot.com/2012/02/arc-review-fever-phoenix-rising-book-1.html FEVER got a stellar “5 wings” rating.

becky jean–I agree. I think Joan’s really on to something with this Phoenix Rising series. :)

I hope you enjoy! Thanks for stopping by!!

Joan Swan said in February 26th, 2012 at 7:17 pm

Kendra, you ROCK!! Awesome review! And you actually helped me with something I was as worried about as you were — the build up of the hype and then the worry of letting people down when they read. I’m so thrilled to hear that you were built up to read and it DIDN’T let you down!! It’s a big relief!

XOXO

Theresa, thanks so much for taking the time to read my review. It means a lot to know that more people are reading them then just myself. I worry about that sometimes. Crazy, right?

Joan, you are most welcome. You are a very talented author and an awesome individual. I am so glad I could help in some small way. :)

Kendra–nah, not crazy at all. At least, I hope not, because writers are the same way. :)

Kim–thanks! Joan’s release day is tomorrow, and she’s touring through mid-April. Whew!
