It’s my favorite blog interview I’ve given in a while not to mention the only blog interview I’ve done about In the Age of Love and Chocolate.  The interview also answers many of the questions readers have been e-mailing me about the book.  And if that isn’t enough, there’s still time for you to win *signed* hardcover copies of All These Things I’ve Done and Because It Is My Blood.

An excerpt from the interview below:

Jen:

I’m so excited (and a little sad) that In the Age of Love and Chocolate, the final book in your fantastic Birthright trilogy, is coming out in October 2013. Did the book have a title change, because I’ve also seen it listed as In the Days of Death and Chocolate.

Gabrielle: 

Thank you, and I’m so glad you like the series. The truth about the title change is that I wrote two entirely different books for the last book. The first time I wrote the book it was called In the Days of Death and ChocolateThat version was pretty deep into the publishing process when I began to have a recurring, waking dream about Anya Balanchine. I kept having this fear that I would run into her and that she was mad at me. At first I tried to ignore her, but after a while, I couldn’t. I was at a party, and I actually thought I saw her across the room! That was a Saturday. On Sunday, I called my editor and I might have cried a little bit and I asked her if I could write the book again. She said yes, and now Anya Balanchine isn’t angry with me anymore…
