Welcome to the annual A to Z Challenge.
My theme: showcasing bloggers books, novellas, short story collections, poetry collections and some non-fiction books. The letters of the alphabet will correspond with the book title. I’ll be posting a link to my review of each book. I also have two questions for the author, just to spice things up a little.
Hopefully, visitors to my blog will be able to increase their reading lists and also get ideas for their wish lists.
Backworlds by Mary Pax. Read my review HERE.
Genre/Category: Science fiction/space opera adventure.
The book character you want to have coffee with is: Spartacus. He may spit the coffee at me, but there are a lot of questions I have about the times he lived in.
What would you name the autobiography of your life? The Everyday Adventures of M. Pax.
Beneath The Rainbow by Lisa Shambrook. Read my review HERE.
Genre/Category: YA, but it also fits as a stand alone in Literary Fiction.
The book character you want to have coffee with is: The book character I would love to have coffee with is Lirael from Garth Nix’s The Old Kingdom books, she’s an oddity and I relate to her beautifully fascinating nature! Her world is one of magic and adventure and I want to join her.
What would you name the autobiography of your life? Right now I would name my autobiograpy: ‘From Gossamer Dreams…’ as my imagination and dreams have always been the driving force behind my writing. Dreams give you hope, and hope gives you courage, and with courage you can achieve your dreams!
Blood Fugue by E.J. Wesley. Read my review HERE.
Genre/Category: Urban Fantasy/Adult.
The book character you want to have coffee with is: (If it’s from my own story…) Jenny, the heroine from Blood Fugue. She’s tough, funny, and will say anything to anyone. Makes for an entertaining coffee date! 🙂 (From any story…) Dumbledore from the Harry Potter series. He’s so smart and charming, plus you know he’d have great stories to tell.
What would you name the autobiography of your life? A Tale of Two People–because I grew up in a very rural/small town in Oklahoma but my adult life has been marked by travel and living in new places. (My wife is in the Air Force and we are approaching our 7th move in 12 years of marriage. LOL) I’m a very different person at 38 than I was at 18.
Book 1 of The Backworlds is free on Amazon. E.J. Wesley will hook one lucky winner up with the entire series to date (books 1 to 6) of the Moonsongs novellas, in the digital medium of your choice (epub/mobi/Amazon etc.) The second lucky winner can choose between a signed paperback or e-book of Beneath The Rainbow. Please leave an e-mail address after your comment by Thursday 07th April, if you wish to to be entered in the giveaway. Winners will be announced on Friday 08th April.
Do you read science fiction/space opera…or urban fantasy…or literary fiction? Have you tried to read/write a different genre, or do you prefer to stick to one book genre? If you had to choose a legendary figure from a bygone era as your coffee date, who would it be? If you are an artist, what is the driving force behind your writing/painting? Am I the only person who has never read a Harry Potter book? I really need to find time to read one of these books? What am I missing?
