I feel like authors deserve so much from the readers. I believe that authors are people who really connect with us. It was actually an author who I "sorta" owe my life to. Authors and their words make us feel and they can help us.
In this event, I want to get to know the authors. I’d like to get interviews or blog posts about THEM in connection to their book. Who is the mind behind each author?
For each post, I leave links to connect with the author. Please take the time to use one of those links and leave a message for each author, if you can. It can be towards the book or it can be something as easy as “I love the post you wrote on Out of Time! <33”
Jaye Robin Brown and I started talking on twitter. Durh. My of my convos and relationships start on twitter because that's how I roll! She's super sweet and I'm so excited to have her here today.
Top Ten Musical Facts - With Jaye Robin BrownSince No Place To Fall is a lot about music, I thought I’d give you my top ten musical facts.
1. I have a VERY limited range. It’s why I wanted to write a character who can sing. Because nobody wants to hear me do it.
2. I love musicals. Sound of Music, West Side Story, heck Glee is all kinds of awesome, give me singing and dancing and I’m glued to the screen.
3. I CAN’T listen to music when I write. It’s horrible. I try and try and try but I end up listening to music—instead of writing.
4. I’ve been to countless music festivals from Jazz Fest in New Orleans to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival to little bitty street fairs around my home.
5. My first concert was at age 14. I saw Styx. The next day was field day at my school and I didn’t care the concert shirt smelled like an ashtray. I was wearing it!
6. I once dated a blues guitarist.
7. I was dumped by a blues guitarist. It’s okay, I only really liked the turquoise Stratocaster.
8. If reincarnation or the TARDIS is a thing, I’d like to come back as Dolly Parton, Queen Latifah, and Janis Joplin. Maybe not all at once.
9. I once hiked past James Taylor on a trail. I didn’t realize who he was till we got off trail and someone said “Hey, did you see James Taylor on the trail?” Then the light bulb went off. He’s super tall.
10. I’m really excited I wrote a book with such a strong current of song and rhythm, because it’s forced me to learn how to spell rhythm. Which is hard. No vowels. Two h’s. One y. Pshew, did I get it?
Music is my life. Well... aside from books. I find music to be like the most inspiring thing ever. It's just something that makes me feel all kinds of fuzzy things. So I really do hope I enjoy No Place to Fall. And I'm so jealous because you (yes you) can win a copy.
