Question: If you could "unread" a book, which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time? Or because it was THAT bad?Answer: Well, there has been some self-published books that I wish I could unread but I don't want to call them out. So when it comes to traditionally published books I wish I could unread Shadowed Ground by Vicki Keire. It was the second book in the Chronicles of Nowhere. I liked the first book, but the second one was so bad I was upset that I actually finished it. I did only because I got it from NetGalley and I felt obligated. But just thinking about that book gets me mad. I don't know how it got published. It pretty much disregards basic writing rules, technique, and etiquette. It really was bad. I felt offended as a reader and a writer.

Question: Authors Are Our Celebrities - Have you ever contacted an author you admired? How did that experience go? If not, which author would you love to have a chat with?Answer: Okay, I love this question. I have contacted an author before and you don't even understand how excited I was when she responded. I had written a review for one of the Jennifer Estep's books in her Elemental Assassin Series. When I tweeted about it, I included Jennifer's twitter name so she could take a look if she wanted. Well, she actually read my review and said she loved it. I went all goo goo ga ga and told her how much I loved her writing. Then she tweeted back and said if I ever wanted any of her ARCs to just let her know. Well, I took advantage of that right away and now she sends me all her ARCs. She is the most approachable author ever. She always responds to comments and tweets. It feels so cool to know that I can actually tweet or email her and that she will always get back to me.
As always, if you follow me I will follow you back. Just let me know in your comment.
