This or That List with Mari Mancusi!

About the Book:
The final battle is brewing between Vampires and Slayers. But for Sunny McDonald, the true war is being fought over her heart.

Though now officially back in the arms of her vampire boyfriend Magnus, Sunny finds she still can't forget the gentle mortal Jayden who once saved her life. And when the darkness threatens to steal his humanity, Sunny finds herself with a choice. Stay true to Magnus and the Blood Coven or defy them in a desperate attempt to save Jayden’s soul.

Meanwhile, the Blood Coven is gearing up for its toughest fight yet--going head to head with a splinter group of Slayer Inc who's regrouping in Tokyo, Japan, still determined to take over the world. In dark blood bars and hidden temples, it'll be Vampires vs. Slayers in a showdown that could cost Sunny not only her heart...but also her very life.

About the Author:
Mari Mancusi used to wish she could become a vampire back in high school. But she ended up in another blood sucking profession --journalism -- instead. Today she works as a freelance TV producer and author of books for teens and adults.

This or That List with Sunny!
Sunny is Mari Mancusi's brilliant character from her Blood Coven series and she is here today to answer a little bit of This and That with us!

Romance or Urban Fantasy?
Oh romance--definitely. I like the happily ever afters. Urban Fantasy is too action-packed for me--reminds me too much of my real life. Sometimes I just want to escape in a book and know everything is going to turn out okay in the end.

Puppies or Kittens?
Puppies. Especially the ones Jayden works with at the Pet Comedy Theater in Vegas. They are so fuzzy and cute and can do such amazing tricks. Actually the cats can too--whoever said you couldn't train a cat has never seen these kitties! Sadly, though, I think I'm destined to be pet-free forever, as cats and dogs don't really like vampires. All that dead meat walking around--it's confusing, to say the least.

Sun or Stars?
Sun of course! I'm not named Sunshine for nothing, you know! To be honest that's one of the reasons I don't think I could ever deal with becoming a vampire. I couldn't bear never seeing another sunrise. Not to mention I'd have to forgo cruises to the Caribbean for all eternity. Boo!

Mustard or Ketchup?
Neither. I'm anti-condiment. Plain Jane all the way.

Vampires or Fae?
While some of my best friends are vampires (not to mention my sister and my boyfriend), I personally would not want to become a creature of the night. Sure, there are some benefits--immortality, riches beyond belief, etc. etc. But for me, being a fairy princess trumps all of that. For one thing, I can go out in the sun anytime I choose. And I get to survive on sweet, delicious nectar, instead of disgusting syrupy warm blood. Plus I can fly. Sure, I'm usually a little too afraid to use that power to its fullest extent. But it's saved my butt a few times. Oh and did I mention I can shapeshift? Yeah. Being a fairy rocks.

Lemonade or Iced Tea?
Ice tea--for the caffeine. My life's busy. And my boyfriend's nocturnal. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

Paperback or Ebook?
Paperback. My sister Rayne is the high tech one in the family. I like curling up with a real book. Something about the smell. The feel of the pages on my fingertips. I can't imagine getting that same sensation from a computer.

Fruit or Veggie?
Fruit. Satisfies my sweet tooth. Strawberries, raspberries, peaches---mmm.

Batman or Spiderman?
Batman. He has to work hard for the money. He has no built-in superpowers. It's easy for Superman to save the world with all his Krypton given gifts. Plus Christian Bale is sooo hot!

Pop Tart or Toaster Strudel?
Pop Tarts. They're classic. And delicious. And sweet. Rayne always used to hide a box in her bedroom so when my mom decided to "cook" (and we use the term loosely) we wouldn't have to go to bed hungry.
