Here we are in the Valley of the Kings, near Luxor, and there ahead of us you can see the tomb of King Tutankhamen himself. Today JM is going to answer the infamous Rick Reed questions and tell you a bit about her new release, The Wishing Cup, and one lucky commenter will be able to win a copy of it! Isn't that exciting? Details will be at the end of this blog, so stay tuned! Good morning, JM, hope your camel's not being too tricky for you! Ready for a full day in the Valley of the Kings? Splendid! Let's get started!
First, the questions:
1) You’re marooned on a small island with one person and one item of your choice—who is that person and what item do you have? Oh, this question just tickles me. Who could I stand to be marooned with? Better yet, who could stand to be marooned with me and not want to kill me within two days? I say two days and not 24 hours because the shock of being stuck on the island would most likely keep things on track for a bit. But suffice to say that I am known for being fairly high key… But I have a marvelous friend who can pretty much complete my sentences. She is resourceful and clever, which is a plus, and it might be a week before she wanted to kill me (an even bigger plus). My item of choice would be a Swiss knife, preferably one with lots of gadgets attached.
JM, tell us a little bit about The Wishing Cup, which is available from Dreamspinner Press.
Dr. David Jameson may not know much about love, but he makes up for it with an encyclopedic knowledge of Egyptian history and language. Too bad his job as linguist for a team excavating in the Valley of the Kings puts him right under Edward's nose. When the discovery of a rare artifact leads to a disagreement between guardian and ward, Jeremiah McKee, the team's American benefactor, sends no-nonsense Jake Tanner to protect his investment.
