This week I have a special interview and contest on Amberkatze's Book Blog. My guests today are witch Jazz Tremaine from 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover
and Fluff and Puff
her magickal bunny slippers. We're totally cool. The Bunnies are really cool to hang out with and they ate alot of chocolate during the interview!
I hope you all enjoy reading this special interview and also enter the contest at the end! Read my '50 Ways to Hex Your Lover' Review
Amber - Before we start thank you all for taking the time to answer my questions! I appreciate it!
Jazz - Thank you for having us!
Amber - Let's start with Fluff & Puff. Please could you tell my readers a little about yourselves?
Fluff & Puff - We were created by an evil and very powerful wizard named Dyfynnog. He made us do really nasty things and kept us in a magickal cage when he didn't use us. We weren't named Fluff and Puff then. Several hundred years ago Jazz snuck in and rescued us, so we'd never leave her no matter what.
Amber - Jazz, now it is your go! Tell us all a little bit about yourself!
Jazz - Hm, Krebs is still trying to find out my age, so don't tell him I said anything as in I'm over 700 years old. When my magickal gifts started to appear I was taken to the Witches Academy for schooling. But one of my classmates got into major trouble and we all stood up for her, so we were expelled from the Academy in 1313. Since then I've roamed the world and now, I'm settled in Santa Monica where I work as a curse eliminator more for the Hollywood set than anyone and as a driver for All Creatures Car Service. I'm also 'blessed' with a ghost in my beloved 1956 T-Bird convertible who loves to make me miserable at times. Irma is a trial and unfortunately, mine.
Amber - Now all of you made your first appearance in '50 Ways to Hex Your Lover
'. When will we get to see you all in action again?
Jazz - We're all in Hex Appeal coming out this November.
Amber - Fluff & Puff can obviously be a little hard to handle sometimes. How do you control them Jazz?
Jazz - Handle them? Excuse me, I'm laughing here. No one can handle them because Fluff and Puff have minds of their own and are still protected by powerful magick. But they also know I have a special cage that if truly pushed would be used.
Amber - Jazz, how did you come into possesion of Fluff & Puff? or did they come to you?
Jazz - Fluff and Puff seemed to say it best. I'd heard of these bunny shoes that were created by magick, and since I never liked Dyfynnog. Actually, no one does. I went in and rescued the slippers. He couldn't press charges against me because what he was doing to them was illegal.
Amber - What do you all like to do in your spare time?
Fluff & Puff - chase the neighbor's cat! We're not allowed to eat him, but no one didn't say we couldn't chase him. Plus, he's a really mean cat. We also like to hang out with Krebs, Jazz's mortal housemate, but he doesn't like us around his computers.
Jazz - hm, time with my vamp honey, Nick.
Amber - Do any of you have any interesting or funny stories you can tell us about each other?
Fluff & Puff - sex is very strange with humans. What we're saying is ...
Jazz - don't you dare!
Amber - If you could get any actor/actress to play you in a movie who would you pick?
Jazz - Some people say I look like Kiera Knightley.
Fluff & Puff - Sorry, but not Bugs Bunny!!!
Amber - What kind of music do you all like to listen to?
Fluff & Puff - we like loud rock and roll, but Krebs makes us turn it down.
Jazz - when I'm in a dreamer mood, I like Celtic Woman. Otherwise, I'm for classic rock from the 1960s. I live near the beach and beach music always works for me.
Amber - If you all got stuck on a desert island and could take 3 things with you...what would you all take?
Jazz - well, can't take Nick, too much sun and no way I'd dare take another male. Leaving Irma behind would be nice. So sunblock, my favorite bikini, one of the rubber duckies because I'm sure any of them would love all that water.
Fluff & Puff - licorice root, chocolate that won't melt, sunglasses

Enjoyed the post today! My favorite is Reese's peanut butter cups, you get both chocolate and peanut butter. (YUM)
At 3 August 2008 17:21, Pamk
Like Tetewa I love anything Reece's but my particular favorite sweet is Bryer's Reeces' peanut butter cup ice cream. My favorite candy bar is Reeces white choclate peanut butter cup.

I developed this habit in high school where I can't eat breakfast without getting a tummyache. So when i eventually got hungry, I usually had to run down to the vending machine. Because of that, I have this obsession with M&M chocolates. I used to go through 3 bags a day. It was the only thing keeping me going with all the stress. Even now it's the one sweet I can't resist, but I buy it in bulk cause it's cheaper. haha.
Anyways, please enter me in the giveaway. The book sounds like a fun read. Thank you. =)

I wanna win and read this book! :)
My fave chocolate would be Twix!! Yummy twix! Two for me, none for you :P

Funnily enough, I have you to thank for my favorite kind of candy. That Mars Delight bar and that Ferrero Garden Lemon things you sent me a few months ago were SO yummy!!!
At 3 August 2008 21:42, Kathy
My favorite is Hershey's chocolate or Kisses. I like to put a little piece on my tongue and just let it melt. mmmmmmmmmm
At 4 August 2008 01:53, DawnM
Favourite chocolate bar would be KitKat. I'm not keen on anything too sweet and that makes a nice blend with the crunchy biscuit.
At 4 August 2008 05:39, Elin
My favourite chocolate is Terry's Chocolate Orange. I developed a liking for this when I spent three weeks in York, England, back in 1995. It's pretty hard to get by here, and even impossible until a couple of years ago. Now you can get the bars at a special deli, but they're horribly expensive. :(
Except for that, I love Belgian chocolate. Especially dark. I guess I'm in general a chocoholic, I even have books about chocolate! :)
At 4 August 2008 05:58, Wendy
I looove Hershey's Dark Chocolate bar. I could eat that every day! :)
Any dark chocolate for that matter!
At 4 August 2008 06:20, Daelith
Dark Chocolate Peanut M&Ms
Fudge covered Oreos
I'm a sucker for chocolate chip cookies too.
My all time favorite chocolate was the homemade Belgian chocolates my DH brought me home from one of his overseas trips. He found some little mom & pop type chocolate store in Amsterdam where they did everything from scratch.
Thank you for another fun interview and a chance to win this book.
At 4 August 2008 06:52, Ruth Schaller
I'd have to say that my favorite sweet, chocolate treat would be the Heath bar. I love the butter toffee and the chocolate. Oh no...I'm starting to drool now...LOL
I loved the interview, so you can count me in for this contest!!!!
At 4 August 2008 07:02, sidhevicious
Being a choc-o-holic, I have a few faves. :) Ferraro Rochet and Turin's Baileys filled chocolates are my guilty indulgence. For regular everyday chocolates, I'm loving the Planters chocolate covered almonds and Wunderbars.
The interview was great fun to read! I still haven't managed to get my hands on a copy of this book and I really want to read it, so please enter me too. :D
At 4 August 2008 07:14,
What a cute interview! Sounds like a fun book. My favorite chocolate sweet is Hershey's Speical Dark. Mmm, just love dark chocolate!
At 4 August 2008 07:18, hippolein
Wonderful interview, the bunny slippers looked very cute ;-)
As for the chocolate, Leonidas would be the favourite as they sell them now also in Helsinki (by Kaakaopuu) and it has always been our special-occasion chocolate at home in Belgium ;-)
At 4 August 2008 08:19, Shelbycat
Hmmm ... favourite chocolate, well i really love Cherry Ripes & Violet Crumble but since i haven't had one of either of those in years because they're in Australia and i'm not i should probably choose something closer to home. I choose Pocky's! Specifically the milk chocolate ones, or maybe the strawverry ones which ever is on sale at my local chinese supermarket.
At 4 August 2008 08:32, Sophia
I don't know if this is an international offer but i'll try my luck!
My favorite cholates are all ferrero products. I love hazelnut cream and chocolate together (especially kinder buenno!!!)
At 4 August 2008 08:41, Amberkatze
All my contests are international unless specified. I am in Europe myself so I know what it is like to be out of the running because you don't live in the States.
Nice to see so many entries already!!
At 4 August 2008 10:15, Ann
Looks interesting. My favourite chocolates are Callebaut (just add .com to that and you can see the site). I only get them once a year though, for Valentine's (they're kind of pricey).
At 4 August 2008 10:32, Janel
I'd have to say dark chocolate with a tangy citrus filling. Years ago I had a Godiva Key lime filled chocolate that got me hooked on that combo. Of course, you can't go wrong with Snickers Dark to fix a grocery line snack attack.
At 4 August 2008 12:00, Katayoun
i love lindt's dark chocolates, the regular classic ones and i also really, really like cote d'ors milk chocolates, mmmmmm :)
At 4 August 2008 14:54, Kimberly B.
Almost anything Sees or Godiva is great. For everyday, go to the vending machine chocolate fixes, I like Snickers! For romantic or festive occasions, chocolate dipped strawberries are the best!
At 4 August 2008 15:06, Katie
My favorite sweet/chocolate really depends on the day of the week. :-) But I do love the buttered popcorn jelly bellies...yummy! If you are giving me chocolates, I do favor things with carmel...just don't include nuts!
Thanks for the great interveiew!!
At 4 August 2008 17:05, jezebelsk
Cute interview!!! My favorite chocolate treat would be Cadbury's raisin and nut bars. Thanks for having a great contest! jezebelsk1(at)yahoo(dot)com
At 4 August 2008 18:40, blueviolet
My favorite chocolate treat is the Twix candy bar. Those are yummy, yummy, yummy. I love anything with chocolate and caramel together....ooooo, that's good.
At 4 August 2008 20:51, catslady
I think I sent my original comment to the wrong place. I'm also trying to contact you about winning a contest because my email came back to me :( I'll keep looking for the right place but if not maybe you could contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org? As to candy - anything by Ghirardelli in dark choclate.
At 4 August 2008 20:59, Lori T
My favorite chocolate are either M&Ms or Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I am a choco-holic and I have hard time passing either of these up.
At 4 August 2008 22:58, Cherie
How could a bunny grrl like myself not enter this contest? LOL
Hmmmm... favorite chocolate or sweet huh? Well, I'm not much of a candy bar person unless it's dark chocolate and even then, I'm somewhat of a chocolate snob. LOL
But the one chocolate sweet I would eat till I explode is rich, dark FUDGE... especially from either Fudge Fatale or Provincetown Fudge Factory. (I've tried tons of fudge and these two places are by far some of the best in the world.) *drool*
PS - my 2nd contest entry via this announcement in my blog. :)
At 5 August 2008 01:27, morgaine77
hihi, nice interview, liked it alot!
Oh wow, I simply love too much Sweets, it's kinda hard to tell which one is my favourite... Well, Swiss Chocolote is somewhere at the top, I totally love the Lindor Balls. Then I can never pass on Reese's Peanutbutter Cups or Butterfinger bar. I also love Wonka's Nerds and anything gummy-candy. :-)
Thanks for the contest!

Let's get the sweets out of the way, my favorite is dark chocolate covered nuts, best gotten from a local candy shop in Oshkosh, WI called Oaks. I do love foreign chocolates too.
Now I would love a shot to read this book by winning it.
At 5 August 2008 07:55, Sassy Mama Bear
Blogged about it on Mama Bear Reads also :)

I´m one of these few people on earth who don´t eat chocolate and don´t like candies.. but give me a cake or cookies and I´m not sure you will get a slice..
At 5 August 2008 20:03,
Love DOVE dark chocolate, Reeses peanut butter cups, and most especially PERUGINA dark chocolate.
Always have all or someon hand!
At 6 August 2008 08:09, cheesygiraffe
I love a good quality dark chocolate. Plus I love cinnamon candies. Hot tamales, fire balls, cinnamon discs, and Fire Jolly Ranchers.
At 7 August 2008 13:18, Deirdre
I'm not a huge chocolate eater. As an occasional treat I like a few White Chocolate Coffee Creams from Leonidas. I'd love to be able to get the occasional white chocolate terry's orange (they're often just a christmas special).Chocca Mocca have some glorious white chocolate covered blueberries.
As an everyday treat, Lidl does a nice white chocolate with strawberries. Tastes yummy and is pretty cheap.
At 8 August 2008 01:41, Gina G.
How bad would it be to say the chocolate Easter bunny with peanut butter filling? Really, I don't want to hurt Fluff and Puff's feelings ... so, ummm, I'll go with Pixies aka Turtles! Love, love the interview! I hope she does a book for Fluff and Puff - what a hoot! Sin, Gina from Springfield, Illinois
At 9 August 2008 09:04,
I love the idea of 'hexing' my lover (or at least vexing him!). My favorite chocolates (right now, anyway) are Lindt Dark Chocolate Truffles! I love anything dark chocolate, especially if there's raspberry involved!!
At 10 August 2008 08:22,
Love the post!
Hmm my favorite chocolates are rosebuds, smarties, kit-kat, chocolate covered peanuts and M & M's.
