Connect with Shannon:
How could this be the best birthday celebration without THE BEST author?! (Okay, so I'm a bit bias) I'm so excited to be able to feature Shannon both for my birthday, and UBM. She is all kinds of awesome. Read her interview, enter to win her book, and party!
Mad lib time! Credit for this idea, as always, goes to the reviewers at Everead.
Miri tongued with Peder for the rest of the tongue, mostly not producing at all. Next to Peder, in that tongue-like courtyard of stone, she felt so close to produce she could almost gander the gander behind the breeze.
Wow. I had no idea that would turn out so... *ahem*. Just so y'all know, these are the words Shannon provided:
- 3 Nouns: tongue, produce, gander
- 3 Verbs: tongue, produce, gander
- 3 Adjectives: tongue-like, productive, gander-worthy
I love audiobooks. When I was a teen they were my way of getting around my parents telling me to go to sleep and stop reading. You can still "read" audiobooks in the dark and no one is the wiser. I have a very clear memory of listening to The Goose Girl audiobook while in bed in the dark, and after it ended there was that interview with you. When you said that line about the "squeaky hours of the night" ...it just hit me. Not for the first time, it felt like you had managed to take the scrambled ideas in my head and put them into the perfect words. That was exactly how I felt about my favorite books. And the use of the word "squeaky" was just so... awesome. Squeaky is such a great word. And I just figured that a book that kept you up into the "squeaky hours" would clearly be called a Squeaky Book.
