It’s a Mall World After All by Janette Rallison – Christmas Countdown Blitz

USA Today, bestselling author, Janette Rallison/ CJ Hill writes books because writing is much more fun than cleaning bathrooms. Her avoidance of housework has led her to writing thirty novels that have sold over 1,000,000 print copies and have been on many reading and state lists. Her books are fantasy, sci-fi, and romantic comedy because hey, there is enough angst in real life, but theres a drastic shortage of humor, romance and hot guys who fight dragons. She lives in Chandler, Arizona with her husband, kids, and enough cats to classify her as eccentric.

If they gave out diplomas for what you learn at the mall, Charlotte could graduate with honors. Ever since she got a job as a perfume spritzer, she’s become an expert on all things shopping relatedoh, and she’s getting really good at spying on her classmates who hang out there. What she hasn’t mastered is the art of convincing her best friend Brianna to dump her boyfriend Bryant. After Charlotte caught him flirting with a mysterious, blond-haired girl, she knows he’s up to no good. Worse still, now Brianna is taking his side. Charlotte must prove who is right, once and for all, and that means catching Bryant in the act. This is where her mall roaming skills will come in handy. Perfume anyone?

Q&A With the Author:

1.What inspired this Christmas/Winter book? I had the idea: what would happen if a mall Santa got in a brawl while a bunch of kids were watching? I thought it could be a really funny scene (which goes to show you that I’m a bit warped.) From there, I worked backward to figure out who these people were and what they were fighting about. 
2.Do you have other Holiday books? If so, what are they are for which Holidays? If not, what other books do you write? I have a Valentine’s novella Valentine’s Day Collection (A Timeless Romance Anthology Book 19) but most of my books are either romantic comedies or action (with romance and a bit of comedy because I love those elements too much not to put them in.) I also write under the pen name CJ. Hill. (Although I should warn you that there are two other authors with the same name. I’ve written the Slayers series and Erasing Time series.) 
3.What is your largest unfulfilled dream, and what are you doing to reach it? My largest unfulfilled dream is to write all of the books that I have plot ideas for. I’m working toward this goal largely by ignoring my housework and writing instead. It’s a sacrifice, yes, but I’m willing to make it. 
4.Tell us about things you enjoy — what you do for fun or personal satisfaction besides writing? I love traveling and learning about history. And of course, I also love reading. 
5.Are your characters/stories/scenes, etc. based on anything in real life? I think most of my embarrassing moments make their way into my books. If you’re going to humiliate yourself in social circles, you might as well put those moments to good use. 
6.Tell us one Christmas or Winter tradition that you love to do every year, and why it is so special to you.  Hmmm. Well, the thing I do with the most consistency is overspend at Christmas–that and consume too much sugar. Those are probably not the traditions you were looking for. My family also goes to see the Christmas lights at the Mesa Arizona Temple, and I make my kids sing Christmas carols on the way there and back. It’s the one time a year they’re forced to listen to me sing without rolling their eyes. That’s special. This year the temple is being renovated, so I guess we’ll just have to drive around some festive neighborhoods singing. People won’t think that’s strange.
