Guest Blog: Secrets and Shadows

Secrets and Shadows: A 13 to Life Novel

Next week is the highly anticipated arrival of Secrets and Shadows, the second book in the 13 to Life series by Shannon Delany.

When I found out Ms. Delany was offering a chance to interview werewolves Max or Pietr for the MAX-imum Exposure Blog Tour, I jumped at the chance and signed us up right away!  I asked to interview Pietr, Jessie's love interest in 13 to Life.  If you haven't read this yet and would like a little background you can check out a note from Jessie on Ms. Delany's blog or my review of 13 to Life.

But now, with out further ado:

Welcome to the MAX-imum Exposure Tour for the 13 to Life Series!

Each site throughout the tour will have swag and an individualized interview with either Pietr, Max or both!

And make sure you join us live at 11 am EST on 2/12 for a Blog Talk Radio event with host Barry Eva, Pietr, Max and Shannon! Go here:

Can't make the live BTR event? Join us instead for a special interview with both boys at Mundie Moms ( on 2/17 at 9pm EST for an exclusive chat!

And here's today's interview!

GJR:  What's with the bad blood (HA!) between you and Vampires? Do you know any?

Pietr:  Funny, Jenn. I think the attraction people have for vampires says a lot about our society in a very philosophical sort of way. And I have known people who are like vampires; we all have. There’s always someone who sucks the life out of people they’re around, someone who feels better if other people feel worse, and so they drain them in different ways. I think Junction High has some people like that. I’d like to stay clear of them.

GJR:  Max is getting a lot of attention right now. Are you a little jealous, relieved, or both?

Pietr:  Max usually gets quite a bit of attention. It’s a good and bad thing. If he’s in the spotlight I’m not. That can be a relief. All I have to do is make sure he doesn’t screw things up too badly for us while he is in the spotlight. Unfortunately that can be quite a challenge.
