Consuming Worlds Blogging Anniversary

Consuming Worlds Blogging Anniversary

Posted by on Jul 27, 2014 in Blog Events, Blogger, Interviews, Matty Says, Random | 3 comments

So my fellow blogger and author, Danielle with Consuming Worlds is hosting her Blogging Anniversary today, and I can’t tell you how honored I am to be a part of it. She’s doing something special this year, and rather just promoting authors and books she enjoys, we’re digging a little deeper. Today we’re talking about ourselves as people, not just writers and creators who have uncontrollable alter-egos that like to make up stories. Today we get real, and I dig deep. I wanted to really contribute something true and honest to this post, and I had to go under the skin for it. There’s no fluffy sparkles or humor in today’s post, but it’s real, it’s honest, and it’s the side nobody gets to see from the other side of the monitor. So let’s head over to Consuming Worlds and check out my guest post in celebration of Danielle’s Blogoversary. And congratulations to her on how far she’s come in this short time. When I first met Danielle she didn’t have a blog, and now she’s celebrating an anniversary, as well as her first recently published book, Guided. Happy Blogoversary,...

The time has arrived! Val from Stuck In Books and I are getting everything together for a massive unveiling of the final cover in The Protector series, Endure. If you’re interested in being apart of it, the sign up form is below. The reveal will take place on May 1st, and I can tell you the Endure is my absolute favorite of the series so you should definitely be among the first to see it. As far as release date for Endure, I had to push things back a little, as most of you know. I wanted the book out in May, but that is going to be difficult so the release is currently set for June 5th 2013. The Endure Blog Tour is going to take place a month later, some time in July, and information about that will coming down the pipe soon. Hope to see you...

Blogger Alert – Ana @ The Book Hookup

Blogger Alert – Ana @ The Book Hookup

Posted by on Feb 6, 2013 in Blogger, Blogger Alert | 10 comments

This month’s blogger alert goes to a fellow igloo-dweller, Ana from The Book Hookup. There are five different bloggers that contribute to The Book Hookup, but Ana is the one I met first, and so she’s special. Because of this, you will love her, or there will be yellow snow coming at you. An avid reader with eclectic taste, Ana has been reading for as long as she can remember. So today, we’re taking some time to see what else we can learn from the book-loving Canadian. She wants a story that can take her places, but let’s go deeper than that. The Interview   1. No messing around here. You read Fiction, Non-fiction, and everything in between. Is there any specific genre that you really don’t enjoy? If yes, what is it about that genre that turns you off? I will pretty much read anything once.  I’ll give something a try no matter what the genre is as long as the description and cover appeal to me (yes, I’ll admit being influenced by the cover).  However, I have found that I’m way too squeamish and girly to truly enjoy a horror book.  I like to read at night but I don’t enjoy having to leave the lights on or jumping at every sound after I put my book down! So, no horror for this girl! 2. You’ve been reading for as long as you can remember. What’s the first book you remember reading, and since that book, is there any one book that rocks your bookverse more than any other? The first book that had an impact me was Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery.  I vividly remember reading way past my bedtime and starting the book again as soon as I’d finished it.  As a shy kid, I loved Anne’s spunk and her ability to win over even the most skeptical adult.  She has so many challenges to overcome but she does so with great sass.  I may have wished that I was her…or that I could have her as a best friend!  3. Hypothetical #1 – You’re trapped in a library of epic proportions. Everywhere you turn you see towering bookshelves lined with creased spines. Your TBR list is growing longer with each moment. The power goes out and you’re in complete darkness. You can hear the ruffling of pages and the sensation of magic crawling up your arms. Candles around the room ignite at once, their flames flickering on the air. You find not one, but three creatures of your bookish nightmares stalking towards you. You start to panic, all those horrifying pages coming back to haunt you, and those nightmares have come to life. Out of nowhere, three books fall from a shelf and land open on the table. Three fictional heroes step up from the pages to save you. Who are...
