Renita Pizzitola  released GILDED, the 2nd book in the Gossamer series last week. I was able to snag some of her not-so-free time and get an interview.

Look for an excerpt in the next few days.

If you had to pick one current hit song to play continuously non-stop, in the background of your everyday life, what song would it be?

Anything by P!NK

If someone’s underwear was showing, would you tell them?

If they are a stranger, probably not. I wouldn’t want to embarrass them. If it’s a friend, I’d tell them.

Any super power, what would it be and why?

Invisibility. Although I could use this power for evil…it’d also come in handy when I just want to disappear.

IF you discovered a new island, what would name it?

The Island of Misfit Boys, then I’d gather all my super hot book boyfriends and rule the island. I don’t, like, have this already planned or anything…ahem. 

At a movie theatre, which armrest is yours?

The one on the right.

What do you think Victoria’s secret is?

That a $60 bra won’t change your life.

If you could be trapped in any book from start to finish, which would you pick?

That’s a hard one. I’d want to skip all the sad/scary stuff and just live in the HEA. That’s why I love to read romance, you know every story will find it’s happily-ever-after 🙂

How do you flush a public toilet?

Can’t they all be autoflush?? If it’s too gross to even flush, I’m not using it!

What do you worry you’ll run out of?


Peppermint or Spearmint?


Do you crack your knuckles?

Nope, it’s a pet peeve of mine when people do.

What song would pop up on your iphone/ipod first?

My music changes with my mood so it could be anything from current hits to 80’s music. 

Fish or bird?


If you could have 7 minutes in heaven with any fictional character, who would it be?

I have a list of book boyfriends, how much time do we have? Of course, once I own my island of book boyfriends…

Coffee or Tea?

Coffee, and more coffee. Of course, I’m from Texas so I love tea too.

Best concert you’ve been to?

My favorite concerts are actually the smaller Texas bands. Talk about fun! 

Where are your car keys?

Buried in the bottom of my purse. 

If I started your car, what would be playing?

My fav radio station.

Mac OS or Windows 8?

Mac 🙂 I’m a convert

Don’t google this…How many gas stations in the United States?

Um…A million? There are like ten within 5 miles of me. Seems like they are everywhere, unless, of course, I’m driving on empty.

Just in case you were wondering, there are 121,446 in the US and yearly sales amount up to $249 Billion!  That’s as of June 2012 – of course there’s probably another 100k now…maybe they’ll put one on the moon beside the McDonalds! Thanks, Renita, for letting me pick your brain. Congrats on your book release and can’t wait to read number three in the series.
