This or That (& Giveaway) with Lizzie from Michelle Madow’s Transcend Series

Posted March 16, 2013 by Melissa in Character Interview, Giveaway | 2 Comments

I am pleased to have Lizzie (The MC from the Transcend series by Michelle Madow) here to answer a bit of This or That today!
This or That with Lizzie

Winter or Summer?

Summer. I don’t like the cold weather in the winter.

In or Out?

I’m guessing this means inside or outside? I’m definitely an indoors girl.

Dresses or Pants?

I usually wear jeans, but I like wearing a dress when I’m going somewhere nice, as long as it’s not too cold outside.

Brother or Sister?

I’m an only child, but I’ve always wanted a younger sister. It would be nice to have someone to teach how to draw and recommend my favorite books to.

Black or White?

White. It’s also one of my favorite colors to wear.

Red or Blue?

Blue, because it matches my eyes.

Facebook or Google +?

I have Facebook, but I don’t check it obsessively (like some people I know do.) I don’t even have Google +!

Macaroni and Cheese or Peanut Butter-Jelly sandwich?

Mac and Cheese. I used to eat it all the time when I was younger.

Past or Present?

The past—I love learning about the different ways people lived in other times.

Work or Play?

If reading for fun counts as play, then definitely play. I always get my work done first though.

Boyfriend time or time with girlfriends?

Boyfriend time. Balancing my boyfriend time with time with my girlfriends is something I need to work on. I think my friends get frustrated with me sometimes.

TV or movies?

TV, because I feel like you can get to know the characters better when watching them every week on a television show.

Apricots or Peaches?

Peaches, because they’re sweeter.

White horse or mustang convertible?

A white horse sounds romantic.

Hot or Cold?

Hot! I really don’t like cold weather. (Which makes living in New Hampshire in the winter pretty rough.)

Morning or Night?

I’m a morning person. I have no problem getting out of bed when my alarm goes off (sometimes I even wake up five minutes before the alarm goes off.) I have trouble staying up late—I get so sleepy!

Jacob or Edward?

Edward. Jacob is a little too reckless for my taste, with all the motorcycling and cliff jumping.

Poptarts or Cereal?

Cereal, specifically Cheerios.

Hot Chocolate or Coffee?

Neither—my hot drink of choice is tea. I suppose if I had to choose it would be hot chocolate (if the chocolate wasn’t too strong), because the taste of coffee grosses me out.

Mountains or Beach?

Beach! I love quality beach time with my Kindle.

Dark Hair or Light Hair?

I’m partial to dark hair on guys.

Fall or Spring?

Spring, because it means summer is approaching.

Christmas or Halloween?

Christmas—I absolutely love Christmastime! The evergreen trees, twinkling lights, and fun decorations make winter more enjoyable.

Genre:YA Time Travel

Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England … but she doesn’t know it yet.

Then Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie’s high school at the beginning of the year, and she feels a connection to him, almost like she knows him. She can’t stop thinking about him, but whenever she tries talking with him about the mysteries behind her feelings, he makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching him is even more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has started to become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can’t she get him out of her mind?

Even though Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, fighting fate isn’t going to be easy.

How far would you go to get revenge?

When Chelsea Givens discovered that her ex-boyfriend Drew dumped her to be with her former best friend Lizzie, she’d never felt so betrayed in her life. Then her new friend Shannon tells her she can help set things right. Chelsea’s willing to listen, but what Shannon wants her to believe — that she shared a past life with Drew — is impossible. And what she wants her to do to get him back … well, it’s downright crazy.

Could Shannon be telling the truth? And if she is, what lengths will Chelsea go if it means making Lizzie pay?

Find out in Vengeance, the second part of the Transcend Time Saga.

*Vengeance is the short story that bridges the events in Remembrance and the final novel in the Saga.

In Vengeance, Chelsea set fate back on its original, deadly path.

Now, strange things keep happening to Lizzie. Things that are omens of darkness to come. A curse has doomed her to die an early death, just as she did in her past life. To make matters worse, even if she can figure out who cast the curse, it’s irreversible. There’s only one option left for her to save herself. It’s crazier than anything she’s heard yet, and to do it, she’ll need Drew and Chelsea’s help.

Because to make things right, they must go back to when it all began … and Lizzie discovers that the final events in her past life were more sinister than she ever imagined.
