Bookish Serendipity :)

I wrote a guest blog post for Jessica at the wonderful Bookish Serendipity. I always start with these ideas I think are great for guest blogs. This time I wrote about my nerves when I meet or approach a bookseller or blogger (or other author, actually) for the first time. Of course, now that I wrote the post,  I have fret a bit.  Check it out and check out her wonderful blog here. (As it’s 100 degrees here in NC, I’m also including a bookish fountain to cool everyone down!)

Hey Kid! Interview

Heidi Schulz (HOOK’S REVENGE and THE PIRATE CODE and more!) is doing interviews where authors write notes to their 8-12 year old selves. I was lucky enough to participate although I had a really hard time deciding what to write! I finally went with my old habit of running into poles. When in doubt, go with physical comedy, right? Check out the link.

Literary Rambles Interview (+ arc giveaway)

I’ve read the Literary Rambles blog for a long time. It’s exciting now to be interviewed by Natalie! When I wrote up the answers, I’d been reading lots of blog entries from debut authors about how anxious they were when their books came out. Those entries made me feel better about any nerves I’ve had. (I feel a bit guilty being anxious because being published is a wonderful amazing thing.) Anyway, because of that I wrote some about my own anxieties when answering the questions. Please check it out and check out Literary Rambles – a great blog!
