Now this interview comes with a funny story. I asked Lauren via e-mail if she was willing to do an interview and she responded with "Sorry, but I don't have time." At first I was really sad, but then I got thinking. I follow Lauren on Twitter, and she's always answering questions via her Formspring account. So I got really tricky. Instead of E-MAILING her my questions, I sent them to her through Formspring and everthing worked out! So I don't think she even knows I interviewed her, but I ended up with an interview. Awesome, eh? Check it out!
Really freaking random.
What's the strangest thing anyone has said to you after reading WITHER?
"this is so good I want to slap you" - my agent.
Your editor returns your manuscript and informs you that one of your characters in wither needs to be a paranormal creature in disguise. Who do you choose, and what creature do they become?
I choose a different editor.
What was your favorite birthday present you have ever received?
What kind of car do you drive? What kind of car do you wish you drove?
I drive a silver buick with a shark fin antenna, and it's my dream car.
I was even able to do her mad-lib via Formspring! Here are the results.
I try drunk dialing this golem to Gabriel, and even though I think I’m doing a poor job of imitating the pulling motion of the banana split and my pathetic attempts to yodel in the mallet, he’s paying close attention. When I imitate the moo of the platform shoes hitting the water, he even slaps, and I slap too, quietly, in the darkness of my Hanna Moskowitz.*mad-lib idea was inspired by Alysa at Everead!
Tee hee. So that's that! It's a simpler interview, but it served its purpose.
Not surprisingly this giveaway is for a hardcover copy of Wither! It's hosted by Amber of the Musings of aLmYbNeNr! You've got to head over to her tumblr to enter.
