Lady Thief's Blog Tour with Author A.C. Gaughen



Many readers know the tale of Robin Hood, but they will be swept away by this new version full of action, secrets, and romance.
Posing as one of Robin Hood’s thieves to avoid the wrath of the evil Thief Taker Lord Gisbourne, Scarlet has kept her identity secret from all of Nottinghamshire. Only the Hood and his band know the truth: the agile thief posing as a whip of a boy is actually a fearless young woman with a secret past. Helping the people of Nottingham outwit the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham could cost Scarlet her life as Gisbourne closes in.
It’s only her fierce loyalty to Robin—whose quick smiles and sharp temper have the rare power to unsettle her—that keeps Scarlet going and makes this fight worth dying for.


Playlist for Lady Thief

Breath—Breaking Benjamin.  

Come on—this is so much of Rob and Scar’s somewhat tortured relationship.  “So sacrifice yourself/and let me have what’s left/I know that I can find/the fire in your eyes”.  Oh yeah. 

Seven Nation Army (Glitch Mob Remix)—The White Stripes.  This song not only powers me through just about EVERYTHING, but it totally captures Scarlet’s inability to give up.  But it HAS to be the remix, because it’s so much more driving and intense than the original song.  Awesome remix. 

Face Down—The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.  

Scarlet goes through a lot of dark things in this book, from handling Rob’s PTSD to her husband’s abuse to dealing with guilt and responsibility for the pain of others. This is a song that put me in a better place to write that. 

Powerless—Linkin Park.  This is another Rob and Scar song for me: “You held it all/but you were careless to let it fall/you held it all/and I was by your side/powerless”.  UGH!  Love. 

What I’ve Done—Linkin Park.  

LADY THIEF is mostly about consequences, known and unexpected, fair and wildly unfair, and this song always captures the pain of that kind of fallout for me.
Famous Last Words—My Chemical Romance.  “I am not afraid to keep on living/I am not afraid to walk this world alone”—This is Scarlet’s power ballad.  Over and over again.  There are these moments that are so amazing to write, when Scarlet just stands up and asserts who she is, and I can feel this insane energy coming to me through her, and this song just nails it.  Okay—I wasn’t going to be spoilery, but I can’t listen to this song without thinking of a very specific moment—so I’ll try to be specific without giving anything away!  Scarlet is inside the castle and finds out there’s a riot outside the gates, and as she makes her decision for how to act, LISTEN TO THIS SONG. 

Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)—

Gary Allan.  I know—I know!  Not exactly in keeping with the other ones, but my iTunes could probably get me tagged by a database for dissociative identity disorder.  Something I felt while writing this book, that I think bleeds into Scarlet more often than I really realized, is how to keep going when you’re exhausted, emotionally and physically both.  And this song is like the emotional hug I wanted and I wanted to give Scarlet.  

About the Author 


I am shamelessly addicted to staying up far too late (it feels like stealing time), diet coke (it burns so good), Scotland (stupid country stole my heart and won’t give it back. Interpol has been ineffective for prosecution) and thieves (so I guess I’m not that mad at Scotland).

Before the day… before M-day… people used to read books and watch movies about zombies. They used to dress up as zombies; pretend to kill zombies… Basically, zombies had become a part of popular culture in a very unexpected way.

The highly anticipated zombie apocalypse never came.

What did come was much worse than any city over run with shambling corpses after brains and flesh. A virus… a virus that only affected men. Nobody knew what caused it, or where it had come from, not that it really mattered. It's here and there’s no going back.

Maxine was one of the lucky ones--she got out alive. She and her friends banded together to survive the new desolate conditions left behind by the virus. When a supply gathering mission goes awry, Max and company are left with no better choice than to trust a group of uninfected military men. No longer on the run from her infected husband, Max discovers there could be worse dangers for her on the horizon… Like losing her heart to her mysterious savior everyone calls Zee.
