Yes, it’s another e-book giveaway for my middle-grade fantasy, The Adventures of Stanley Delacourt. I swear, I’m not going to do this every week. But several book bloggers were generous enough to participate in these giveaways, which means more chances at free books for you!
One giveaway is from Booksnatch.blogspot.com (scroll down for details), a site full of cool reviews and recommendations. The person running the blog also interviewed me; here is an excerpt:
My author interview with Booksnatch
What was your inspiration for the book?
The usual: I dreamed it. Seriously, isn’t there another way we authors can come up with book ideas nowadays?
Is there a soundtrack to the book/favorite music?
I listen to what I call “weird New Age music” when I write. It’s enough to fill the silence, but not enough to distract me. Since my novel contains fairies, there was some fairy music going on as well. Pagan, folk, and medieval tunes, etc. Fairies just love that stuff.
Do you need anything to write?
A work ethic. But since I sort of lack that, peace and quiet will do.
How long do you write on any average day?
Oh dear—not nearly as long as I procrastinate!
Any pet peeves?
People who complain constantly about their pet peeves.
Chocolate or peanut butter?
Forcing me to make such a decision would be just plain cruel.
The weirdest thing you’ve ever done?
Um, can I plead the Fifth on that one?
Give us the number one reason to read your book.
Well, the water bill is coming due, and I really need to pay that sucker . . . kidding! Because I think it’s a fun and exciting mix-up of periods, themes, characters, and adventures that readers have never seen before!
