I had a nice holiday and after my blog book fair I rested. I just spent time with my family, watched movies and read. It was a nice 10 days that I needed. I hope you had a great holiday too. Now I am back to work, I have a lot of interesting plans up my sleeve and I hope you all enjoy the fun things I have in mind for the months ahead.I would like to thank everyone who took part in my blog book fair. Both authors and readers were wonderful and very supportive. The blog is still up if anyone would like to check it out. https://rithebard.wordpress.com/2012/12/25/sherris-on-line-blog-book-fair/ It was a lot fun to spend Christmas helping people get the wonderful gift of a book from the raffle. I am also happy that so many people enjoyed buying books from all the wonderful writers who were guests on my site. Thank you!!!Next week welcome Quinn Barrett to chat about her novel Invisible Snow. It is a classic family drama about wealth, power, greed, and redemption. Marriage is a delicate dance of power between lovers, but Kate and Paul Delacroix are strangers caught in a disparate union somewhere between betrayal and truth. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2013/01/15/chatting-with-sherriThis week I had my first broadcast with Amore Goodman about her book; The Temptation Of Love! It was a delightful chat about her book and life as a busy writer. Her book tells the story of Alexander Love, A Philadelphia attorney whose heart was broken several years ago. He thought the love of his life walked away when he announced he wanted to study law instead of joining the NBA. https://rithebard.wordpress.com/2013/01/11/279/My kitty Xena has had another great adventure that she just had to tell you about. She had a battle. A battle with a dragon so please read her blog which she entitled, Me and the Dragon! http://akittysview.wordpress.com/2013/01/04/me-against-the-dragon/This week my guest interview is with Tina Frisco, so give a nice warm welcome to Tina;
Do you still own it?
What kind of books do you like to read?
Do those books have an affect on your own writing?
I love grammar and reference books. I derive great pleasure from constructing my writing to read eloquently as well as grammatically accurate. I may rework a particular sentence many times before it satisfies me. The dictionary, thesaurus, and Gregg Reference Manual are my good buddies!
Do you remember what is the first book that touched you deeply?
Is there an era of writing that affects you? 1920’s, 1800’s so forth?
Where do you like to write? Is there a favorite nook or corner?
Do you prefer one genre to another?
Do you like the feel of a book in your hands or do prefer an electronic devises?
Can you tell us about what your working on now?
I’m beginning a sequel to Plateau. For me, the fascinating aspect of writing fiction is not knowing where it will lead me. I have a general theme in mind when I begin writing a story, but I don’t plot out the chapters; I allow the story to take me on an adventure. I find this exciting, gratifying, and extraordinarily refreshing.
Thank you Tina for your lovely interview.
