GIVEAWAY Q+A with AMBER POLO author of THE SHAPESHIFTERS LIBRARY @AmberPolo


PLEASE WELCOME AMBER POLO author of THE SHAPESHIFTERS' LIBRARY TO BOOKHOUNDS




Love dogs?  Love books?  Love libraries? Hate Book-burning werewolves?

Once long ago the Shipsfeather Academy was a training ground for an ancient race of dog-shifters whose mission was to protect the world’s knowledge. A powerful curse sealed these librarians in the basement of their building and gave the control of the town to a pack of book-burning werewolves.
Librarian Liberty Cutter watches in horror as the town’s public library goes up in flames and plans to re-establish the library in the abandoned Shipsfeather Academy building. 

Chronus, the Old English Sheepdog headmaster of the academy and leader of the dog-shifters, knows he must make some changes to continue to keep his pack safe. But even if he could persuade Liberty to believe in a talking sheepdog, how far can she be trusted? And will she ever be able to care for him as a man. He has to try, because Liberty Cutter and her staff of zany librarians may hold the key to the dog-shifters’ freedom…and the future of the town.




Amber Polo  
A love of books drew Amber Polo into a career as a librarian. A greater love turned her into a writer. The Shapeshifters’ Library series is an urban fantasy filled with books, librarians and dogs, and a library everyone will love. Reviewers are calling it a “cozy” fantasy.

The mystical side of Sedona, AZ became the paranormal setting for her first novel Romancing Rebecca. One day a plane flew past her office window and she turned her pen to her own airpark backyard and Flying Free was the result. In addition to her two novels and short romantic fiction, she is proud of her self-produced , Relaxation One Breath at a Time a CD that uses her voice to teach relaxation to calm your body and mind and/or help you fall asleep.

Relaxing the Writer: Guidebook to the Writer’s Highoffers hundreds of tips to help writers and readers relax. Sample her writing and see why Midwest Book Review called her work “quirky” and “profound” (is that profoundly quirky or quirkily profound?).

After living in seven states, she happily calls a small town in Arizona home.


To help writers and readers reduce stress, her Relaxing the Writer: Guidebook to the Writers’ High, offers suggestions and simple exercises. 




AND NOW FOR SOME QUESTIONS.....



1. What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child?

To cover up that I’m too old to remember, I’ll just say – never ask a librarian about books unless you have an hour or two to spare. 


2. What are you reading right now? 


The Map of the Sky by Felix J. Palma, an historical fantasy, Andrea Thalasinos’ An Echo through the Snow (about Siberian Huskies), and Ceridwen Terrill’s Part Wild: One Woman's Journey with a Creature Caught Between the Worlds of Wolves and Dogs.

3. How does your garden grow? 


Usually I’m transplanting cactus and bleeding or fighting the desert. Either no rain or too much. But seeing mountain on all sides makes up for everything. I am also the Queen of Rosemary. It grows and when it grows too much, pruning gives me a splendid high. 


4. What is the last thing you Googled?


 “U.S. Wolf Refuge” to get their email address to tell them about the blog post I wrote about them.

5. What makes you cringe? 


Thinking of how many books I want to read.

  1. Thanks Mary for interviewing me on your blog. Couldn't think of a place I'd rather be - book lovers and dog lovers - my favorite people.

  2. I think an Old English Sheepdog would make such a perfect headmaster--such great bearing! Thanks for the info and chance to win!

  3. I owned many Old English and the males all seemed like guys in dogsuits. And they all had a sense of humor like a very bright teacher.
