New Year, New Books, Author Interviews #12

Hello Luvs! 
Just one more interview to go! This month has gone by so quickly! <3 
But today I am interviewing a wonderful author!
Her debut novel just recently came out "A Raven's Touch"
I am currently reading this novel but am so busy lately I haven't had time for much reading! But it will change soon, I promise! 

also, today is the LAST interview for authors! 
on the 31st is the last interview for this event but it is a blogger being interviewed so today is the last of the authors! I am so happy because I've done so much! I hope I can do this again! maybe something a little . . . bigger? *smirks* 

And the author being interviewed today is! 


Thank you for letting me interview you! And I hope you all enjoy this interview! I had a wonderful time asking authors questions!

Question 1- What is your new years resolution? 
Linda- I don't have one. I've never understood the point of making a promise at the beginning of the year. If I want to change something about myself I do so immediately. 

Question 2- Are you working on anything new for January? 
Linda- Since I released my debut novel, A Raven's Touch, I'm currently working on the sequel. I don't have a name for it yet, but it's going to be a mixture of YA/Horror/Paranormal.

Question 3- What inspires you most when you write? 
Linda- I can't really point to on specific thing. I get inspired by many every day occurrences. Perhaps walking down the street I hear a bit of someone's conversation, or a friend says something to me a certain way, maybe I hear a song, it's just endless really. While I'm physically writing I really enjoy a certain song list that gets me prepared for scenes. The song "Possum Kingdom" by the Toadies really fueled me while writing A Raven's Touch

Question 4- What was the hardest thing about writing your latest book? 
Linda- Sometimes listening to the Beta readers was rather tough. Some of them said things that made me re-write large portions. Not just once, or twice, but three times. I honestly thought I was going to have some kind of minor breakdown at one point. 

Question 5- What's you favorite quote? 
My favorite book quote is "Curiouser and curiouser!" 
-Lewis Carrol, Alice In Wonderland

My favorite inspirational quote is from Steve Martin, "Be so good they can't ignore you." It really speaks to me on a personal level. I want my work to come to light because the people decided it was good, not because a million dollar publishing house told them what to like. 

Question 6- Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 
Linda- Writing even more. 

Question 7- Where are you from? 
Linda- I'm from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Question 8- If you could work with ANY author this year, who would you want it to be? 
Linda- Stephen King. He is one of my idols and his work gives me goosebumps. 

Question 9- What are a few books you want to read this year (2016) or What genre do you like to read most? 
(Author can choose either question -- freebie) 
Linda- Mainly, I do read paranormal fiction, but I tend to stray to horror and the bizarre. I'm going to definitely pick up some Haruki Murakami, the man is just out there and I really enjoy that. I've read all of Philip K. Dick, of whom I also love.  

Question 10- Whats ONE thing you're really looking forward to? 
Linda- I look forward to being a full time writer one day.

Wonderful answers!
I hope you all enjoyed the LAST 'author' interview, be sure to come back on the 31st for another Blogger interview!
