Get Addicted Tour by Krista & Becca Ritchie
Author: Krista & Becca Ritchie
Series: Addicted #2
Pub Date: Novemeber 30th, 2013
He's addicted to booze. She's addicted to sex...staying sober is only half the battle.
No. More. Sex
Those are the three words Lily Calloway fears the most. But Loren Hale is determined to be with Lily without enabling her dangerous compulsions. With their new living situation—sleeping in the same bed, for real, together—Lily has new battles. Like not jumping Lo’s bones every night. Not being consumed by sex and his body.
Loren plans to stay sober, to right all of his wrongs. So when someone threatens to expose Lily’s secret to her family and the public, he promises that he’ll do anything to protect her. But with old enemies surfacing, Lo has more at stake than his sobriety.
They will torment Lily until Lo breaks.
And his worst fear isn’t relapsing. He hears the end. He sees it. The one thing that could change everything. Just three words.
Welcome to my blog Krista & Becca Ritchie !!!!
1) Please tell us something about you.
Becca: I write smexy, emotional books with a girl who looks exactly (I mean exactly) like me. I’m not duplicating myself like a weirdo. There are actually two of us (I promise), and I’m more apt to make you cry within the pages. She’ll make you laugh.
Krista: I agree, I prefer to write the funny stuff but it doesn’t mean I don’t like to write the sexy scenes from time to time ;)
2) Please tell us something about your series Addicted
Becca: The Addicted series is about a girl who’s a sex addict and her best friend, who’s an alcoholic. As childhood friends, they’ve formed a co-dependent relationship that is tested throughout the series.
Krista: And then other people begin to infiltrate their two-person group and general drama ensues. It’s a book about addiction and trying to find love against the greatest odds.
3)Why did you decided to write together this series?
Becca: Writing is so much more fun with another person. We’ve both written books before, alone, and we really wanted to work together on a project. So we chose the Addicted series.
Krista: It’s much more fun collaborating than it is working alone. And we also started this book while we were in college, so neither of us would probably have had time to do it without one another.
3) Why did you decided to write about addiction?
Becca: Female sex addiction really isn’t talked about at all, and Krista and I were willing to take the challenge to bring the issue to light in an honest way.
Krista: Exactly! And we knew we had to ground it in reality for people to understand that it’s a real issue, so we had to juxtapose it with a common addiction like alcoholism.
4) Tell us five random facts about you?
Becca: I broke a ski lift my first time snowboarding. I love comic books. I hate cream cheese. My first (unromantic) kiss was on New Year’s Eve. And my spirit animal is a turtpire (a turtle vampire).
Krista: I have biology degree. I used to do research on mice. I can’t whistle. I am literally addicted to Diet Coke. And I won a high school state championship for tennis.
5) Which is your favorite book and favorite author?
Becca: Oh my gosh, choosing just one is tough. We read mostly YA (since we review YA books), and I’m still in love with The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller. It’s so adorable and geeky.
Krista: That’s a hard one. There are so many books and authors that I love. I’d have to say my favorite author (because her book started my love of reading and because I saw her recently at a book fest – and she’s awesome!) would be Libba Bray. My favorite book would be Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.
6) In the Addicted series what was your favorite scene to write and why?
Becca: In the sequel, Addicted for Now, Lo has a conversation about his father with Ryke near the end. Ryke is a character that appears late into the first book. They’re in their car, and it’s honest and raw and something that I feel like kept building and building to that point.
Krista: In the entire series…hmmm…I think my favorite scene would be from Addicted for Now. The entire cast is in Cancun and they’re at a club. It was fun because you see a different side of all the characters. General mayhem goes down.
8)Can you give us a little sneak peak from the next book Thrive or something about Connor and Rose?
Becca: We have to stay quiet about Thrive until Addicted for Now is released. But Kiss the Sky is the next book being released (January 2014), and it’s a lot lighter than the Addicted series. It has the same humor, but it’s amplified. And all of the characters will be participating in a reality show within the book. Think Friends meets The Real World.
Krista: Krista: Yep, Thrive is still kind of secret. It’s going to be a crazy book. But I can give you a sneak peak of Kiss the Sky. All six characters will be filmed for a reality show, and there may be a psychic coming in to stir some things up.
9)What are you working now?
Becca: We’re finishing up the Addicted series. And we’re working on a few other books that we hope will see the light of day. All of them are New Adult.
Krista: What she said ;)
10) Please leave message for your readers.
Becca: Thank you all for reading and for taking a chance on Lily and Lo—who may the most dysfunctional couple ever.
Krista: *waves* Thanks so much for reading our series! We couldn’t continue on without your support. It means the world to us <3 <3 <3 Thanks for having us on your blog! Thank you for your interview and for stopping today on my blog!!!! AUTHOR BIOS
Becca Ritchie claims she's from Mystic Falls, but really, she lives in Atlanta where humidity is her greatest foe. She loves comic books, blue nail polish and Jonathan Taylor Thomas circa 1995. She frequents Twitter to dish about too many TV shows, and when she's not blogging, she writes novels and has teamed up with her twin sister to collaborate on a New Adult series.
Krista Ritchie has a clone...or someone who looks exactly like her. If she's not writing books with her twin sister, she's pouring over entertainment news and ingesting copious amounts of pop culture. She likes tennis, that thing called the TV, and beating Becca (her clone) on Sega Genesis. She created YA Book Exchange to combat her book buying addiction and started Nawanda Files, a YA Book Blog that features books into movies news, to share her love for all things bookish. Oh, and she does something called science. Whatever that is.
Krista & Becca Ritchie write New Adult books that make you cringe, gasp, and go ooh-la-la. (If you do that sort of thing.) They are currently working on the spin-offs and final books in the Addicted series. Connect with them on twitter and their website: kbritchie.com
