There is something about this time of year when it gets a bit chillier, the days are cloudier, and snow starts to drift down. It promotes snuggling up on a comfy chair with a cup of hot something (like cocoa or toddies) and a good book. If you're lucky you may have a fire place, with a warm fire crackling. Perhaps you have music playing--something festive.
My reality is--there is no snow (at least not much in the south). Lots of drizzly days (which I like) and instead of happily curling up on a couch I'm fending off the viruses that apparently decide this is the time to wage war. I swear I'm taking stock out in Lysol.
Still, I read. Because even in the midst of chaos--the book is what I look for.
So, I decided to invite a few my Author friends to share what they working on or have worked on. Yes, I was inspired by the Blog Hop that is going around, but instead of using the same questions and going to other blogs--we are staying here.
The questions that will be answered by the authors below are (my answers I posted November 21, 2012):
- What book/story are you focusing on with blurb.
- Is it a stand alone or part of a series?
- Who are the Hero/Heroine (or protagonists)?
- What do they (Hero/Heroine) look like?
- What is their favorite food or drink?
- What are they likely to wear to a formal event? (Would they even go to a formal event, why or why not?)
- What are they afraid of?
- If given orders what is the first reaction?
- What is there favorite color (s)?
- What do they consider romantic?
- What keeps them apart?
