Book Expo America is taking place this week in New York, so you know what that means for us bloggers left at home--it's Armchair BEA time! We're kicking the week off with "interviews." Each blogger is choosing from a list of ten questions and posting the answers on his or her own blog. If you want to read more about your favorite book bloggers, head on over to the Armchair BEA website.
here. It's basically a 5K with lots of mud and obstacles thrown in. I had a blast! I was on a team of four and we called ourselves The Mud Hatters. We got an honorable mention for most creative team name and I think we probably got an honorable mention for most creative costumes as well; every volunteer commented on my hat and the Cheshire cat's tail. My sister was on our team and she somehow stayed clean. The rest of us got filthy and loved it! We're already planning our costumes and name for next year.
Character Connection meme first because it's the oldest. I've changed it to a monthly post where I write about some of my favorite characters and invite everyone to join me. We've had some very creative posts here, but I do wish it got a little more love! I also love my Southern Lit Reading Challenge and my Saturdays in the South feature. It sometimes feels like Southern authors get overlooked outside our immediate region, so I love doing what I can to spread the word about them! We are born storytellers and that generally translates well to the written word!
Captain Frederick Wentworth. I think I pulled off what I wanted quite well.
Jilly Coppercorn from Charles de Lint's Newford books. She is fascinating. She comes from a horrible childhood, but as an adult she sees magic around every street corner. Literally. She's caring and compassionate, has a wonderful sense of humor, and I think she can set anyone at ease, which I would need! I would love to hear her stories about magic on the streets of Newford.
