Second, don't look at the post below this one. It may be dated last Friday... I'm slipin' guys. I'm slipin'. So sorry. I promise I'll try and do better.
Okay, I've been lucky enough to receive two new awards and it's about time I followed the rules and pass them on.
blog, head over there and follow her and no one will ever know you were one of the few that didn't get to laugh at her awesomeness.
For this award, I'm supposed to answer the ten questions and pass it on to five people. I actually have two current WIP (sorta three... ah, man.) but I'll save you all some time to visit other awesome blogs and just tell you about one. (Perhaps I'll do different posts with the others. :))
1. What is the name of your book?
2. Where did the idea for your book come from?
Jen Morris asked me if I would do a collab with her, just for fun. As her CP I knew she was awesome and was totally flattered she asked, so of course I said yes. Then we were like... what should we write about? We knew we wanted to do alternating POV. We went through the usual, boy/girl, best friends and decided on sisters. I'm slightly partial but I think we did good. :) And... this 'just for fun' project has turned into something we're stoked to submit to agents!
3. In what genre would you classify your book?
4. If you had to pick actors to play your characters in a movie rendition, who would you choose?
Lucy, my character, looks a lot like AnnaSophia Robb who is quite a good actress IMO.
5. Give us a one-sentence synopsis of your book.
Jen? Help! Haha. Okay, ummm....
When Charlie is forced to bring her younger sister Lucy on a road trip with her best friends, the two confirm they are nothing alike, but realize the confidence they have in each other is the only thing that will give them the courage to face their futures.
6. Is your book already published/represented?
Well, it's just starting to make the beta rounds so, no. :)
7. How long did it take you to write your book?
What did we decide, Jen? Six weeks, I think.
8. What other books within your genre would you compare it to? Or, readers of which books would enjoy yours?
To be honest, I don't read a whole lot of YA Contemp, so I really don't know what it's like.
9. Which authors inspired you to write this book?
Jen Morris! :)
10. Tell us anything that might pique our interest in your book.
Hmmm... There's love. There's loss. Yes, the two girls 'find each other' and themselves, but I think you'll find it's not so neatly tied up. There aren't 'ah-ha' moments and clean breaks and happy endings.
And to pass this on to five wonderful bloggers (I'm going with the last five that commented on my blog):
here. For this award I'm supposed to share the last time I dressed up.
Well, this wasn't too long ago, actually. Two of my friends from high school got married the first weekend in June and all my friends were there, and their parents. (I love my friend's parents. It was great seeing them.) I'll let the pictures do the talking.
|Molly (right) was my date because, well, I didn't have a date and|
her husband, Jamie, was in the bridal party. Love this girl!
|These are all my high school friends and some of their parents.|
|My high school friends! (The bride and groom total us as seven but|
they were a little busy making the rounds :))
|Ummm... yeah. No words for this. Apparently we're the entertainment?|
|Showin' off the triceps. (Or at least Katie and I are.|
Jen's just laughing at us.)
