Character Interview & Giveaway with Gini Koch

I am lucky enough to have Kitty-the Ambassador from A-C  here to answer a few questions. Her newest adventure, Alien Collective is book 9 in the series and releases today!  There is a rafflecopter giveaway at the end of the interview open internationally, of one book, winners choice between books 1-8 of the series! Just leave a comment of which book you'd like to win & why. 

Despite not having run for office, nor wanting to remain in office, Representative Jeff Martini is being wooed as the vice presidential running mate for a charismatic senator who seems likely to win the campaign. While the Diplomatic Corps has to deal with the pressures of a political campaign sure to uncover secrets they don’t want shared with the world, Ambassador Kitty Katt-Martini has other worries—handling the reemergence of her most potent nemesis, thought dead and buried

1.  Kitty, Out of all the operations you've been on so far, do you have a favorite & a least favorite one?

Gosh. I’d have to say that Operation Fugly is probably still my nostalgic fave, since that’s how I met the gang from A-C in general and Jeff in particular. Of course, Operation Confusion is a nostalgic fave, too, because we got Jamie at the start of that one.

Least fave so far is easy – Operation Infiltration. We took a lot of damage in that one, and the repercussions look to be never ending.

2.  Who do you think the mastermind is, Kitty?

Babe, if I knew, I’d have already kicked their butt back to the stone age. All I’ve got is that it’s someone we’re not suspecting. Most of my suspects are dead, so I got nothin’, but you’re free to guess. The Creator says that, one day, we’ll know…and we won’t be enjoying that day…

3.  What kind of adventures can we expect to see in Alien Collective?

Traitors, and bombs, and androids, oh my. The return on a lot of characters from previous books. Mayhem. Ronnie’s Kids. New talents. And, Prince. Lots and lots of Prince. He’s all kinds of thrilled that he finally made the cover, but I can absolutely say that he earned it. And, modestly spoken, perhaps my most eclectic playlist yet. So, you know, a good time should be had by all.
