My Relationship with Books

I was nominated by a good friend, Beverley Lee to answer some questions about myself and books. I am supposed to nominate others to answer new questions, but I’m late in the game so I’ll just answer what Beverley has asked:

  1. Your favorite author is going to call you for a once in a lifetime chance to talk. You can only ask them one question. Who is the author and what is the question? Why?
    1. JK Rowling. Can you please write a series on the second generation in HP… for obvious reasons.
  2. Which fictional character would you want as a friend, and why?
    1. Kvothe from The Kingkiller Chronicle. Or more specifically, Kote. I would want to be someone who knew the whole story, of Kvothe, and I would want to be the one who got him to play his damn lute again. I’d want to be the friend who got him being the sarcastic pain in the ass he once was, so I could be a bit selfish and experience it for myself, and so he would just freaking smile again.
  3. List three books you’ve read more than three times.
    1. More than three? Doesn’t happen.
  4. Who would you say is your greatest writing influence in terms of your own style?
    1. I would need to finish a manuscript to figure that out.  I’m definitely a bit flowery. So there’s that.
  5. What are you working on at the minute?
    1. A contemporary fiction manuscript about a boy in a band who must learn when to let go of the family he’s been dealt, and how to embrace the family he chooses for himself.  … And Crows on Heartstrings, a collection of 13 illustrated short stories about doomed love.
  6. Which actor/actress would you like to see playing the lead character from your most recent book?
    1. Bill Skarsgård
  7. How important is a book cover to you? Would it influence you over the back blurb?
    1. YES SO IMPORTANT. I will collect books just because the cover art is pretty.
  8. If you could live in one fictional world, where would you live?
    1. Hogwarts
  9. Do you let other people borrow your books?
    1. Yes, but I bite my fingernails the whole time they’re out. I also check pages for bends and smudges even if I like cracking spines myself.
  10. Books have some of the most wonderful quotes among them. Which is one of your favorite quotes, and why does it resonate with you?
    1. I can’t name one off the top of my head. I would have to pick a favorite book to pick a favorite quote and I just love so many books with all my heart that I can’t do that.
