Last August I participated in a blog tour sponsored by Orangeberry Book Tours. At the outset I was given by them a list of questions to answer that they distributed to their participating bloggers. Here’s the list and my answers. I’ve corrected a couple of since some things have transformed since August. By the real way, Pandora Poikilos, who arranged my tour, is wonderful and incredibly supportive.
1. What is one book everyone should read? 2. What’s your favorite thing to consume for breakfast? 3. Please, tell us in one phrase only, why we have to read your publication. My reserve has much to share with anyone grieving the increased loss of someone you care about or suffering any kind of loss.
4. Any other books in the ongoing works? Goals for future projects? I’m writing a historical book based on a little facet of my family’s background, with a huge plot twist yet. I also want to have a book of poetry published. I also want to have a CD manufactured from my son’s jazz music with proceeds of sales going to a charity that helps erase the stigma of mental illness and stop suicide. 5. What influenced one to want to become a writer? Writing appeared to come naturally to me always, and because of that my instructors were very encouraging.
- The name, title, and job (displaying business connection) of the folks you entertained
- Total consumer shelling out for goods, services and new casing accounted for 92% of real GDP development
- Their increased initiatives have resulted in increased leads to terms of platform building
- Jesus Hoyos (on phone or in person)
6. Tell us your most rewarding experience since being released. After my first publisher went of business, I used to be fortunate to find a wonderful new publisher, Dream of Things, that released paperback and eBook editions of my book lately. The first publisher going out of business was a blessing in disguise. 7. What’s your dream solid for your reserve? 8. That which was your favorite publication when you were a child/teen? 9. Will there be music you could list as the theme melody for your publication or any of your characters?
My child was a very talented jazz composer and pianist. I’d want his music as the theme tune with sprinkles of John Lennon, Miles Davis, and J.S. Bach throughout the film. 10. What’s one little bit of advice you would give to aspiring writers? Don’t give up. No matter just how many rejections you get, continue asking.
11. If you could reside in the world where would it be anywhere? Italy. It is my goal to reside in Rome and travel throughout Italy by train someday. First stops would be Sicily and Naples – places I haven’t visited yet. Plus I really like Italian food. 12. What’s your favorite Quote?
13. When you were little, what do you desire to be when you “grew up”? Brenda Starr Reporter or a shoe designer. I enjoyed to draw, and color as well as write. 14. What’s the best advice anyone has ever given you? A friend called me ten days after my son’s funeral and suggested me another to our morning hours aerobics class. I did so. Working out helped me begin my healing process again.
I still workout every day. 15. This season What movie and/or reserve search ahead to? 16. What was your preferred children’s reserve? Me Too, story and words by Fritz Willis (The Marcel Rodd Company, 1944). My father gave me the publication because I always said, “me too,” whenever I needed something my brother got. I haven’t experienced one yet, but easily did I’d wish to know why or if the reader even read my book. Obviously, I wouldn’t feel good about any of it.
