Author Interview with Mary Gray + Giveaway: ARC of The Dollhouse Asylum by Mary Gray

Hi guys!For today, I have Mary Gray, the author of The Dollhouse Asylum. We will be doing something a little bit different - a fun, quick interview.

Describe THE DOLLHOUSE ASYLUM in five words:
1. Melancholy
2. Romantic
3. Suspenseful
4. Fragile
5. Sobering

In one sentence, what is THE DOLLHOUSE ASYLUM about?
It's a story about a group of teenagers who are granted asylum from the apocalypse and then are forced to re-enact tragic, literary couples... or die.

Tragic literary couples, you say? Can you tell us who?
Nope! That's why you need to read this book! Then you can see which couples my villain felt needed to be in his "perfect" world.

Where does the story take place?
In an eerily pristine subdivision in the middle of nowhere outside Austin, TX.

When can we read THE DOLLHOUSE ASYLUM?
It's released October 22nd! Just three short months away!

Is there kissing in this book?
YES. All the best books involve kissing.

Where does the best kissing take place?
Why, in the rain, naturally, with someone our hero should not be kissing at all.

Mary Gray has a fascination with all things creepy. That's why all her favorite stories usually involve panic attacks and hyperventilating. In real life, she prefers to type away on her computer, ogle over her favorite TV shows, and savor fiction. When she's not immersed in other worlds, she and her husband get their exercise by chasing after their three children. The Dollhouse Asylum is her first novel.

Book Description:

Paperback, 296 pages
October 22nd 2013, Spencer Hill Press

A virus that had once been contained has returned, and soon no place will be left untouched by its destruction. But when Cheyenne wakes up in Elysian Fields--a subdivision cut off from the world and its monster-creating virus--she is thrilled to have a chance at survival.

At first, Elysian Fields,with its beautiful houses and manicured lawns, is perfect. Teo Richardson, the older man who stole Cheyenne's heart, built it so they could be together. But when Teo tells Cheyenne there are tests that she and seven other couples must pass to be worthy of salvation, Cheyenne begins to question the perfection of his world.

The people they were before are gone. Cheyenne is now "Persephone," and each couple has been re-named to reflect the most tragic romances ever told. Everyone is fighting to pass the test, to remain in Elysian Fields. Teo dresses them up, tells them when to move and how to act, and in order to pass the test, they must play along.

If they play it right, then they'll be safe.

But if they play it wrong, they'll die.

What's up for grabs? An ARC of The Dollhouse Asylum by Mary Gray.
