Interview with Hannah Harvey


Hey guys!

I literally just had an interview with Hannah Harvey. So I decided to post it. :) Enjoy. If you don't know who Hannah is, there is a little author bio section below written by herself. :)

Author Bio:

My name is Hannah Harvey, I'm just breaking into the self-publishing universe. I'm 21 years old, and I'm a writer of Young Adult Contemporary Fiction. I'm also a student with the Open University, working towards a BA (Hons) Degree.
I started writing seriously a few years ago, when I came across National Novel Writing Month, and since then I've been working harder and harder on my writing, leading to the release of my first book 'How I Got Here' in 2012.

Interview:


1. When and how did you realize that you wanted to become a writer?

I always loved writing but it wasn't until a couple of years ago when I started taking part in nanowrimo, that I realised I really wanted to take my writing further.

2. How do you come up with the ideas for your books?

A lot of different ways, it could be a place I visit, a picture I see or music. Anything can spark an idea.

3. How do you come up with the names for your characters?

It usually takes me a while, sometimes I  look at a list of names and pick one. Sometimes I know what letter I want it to begin with, or I know that I want it to be able to be shortened, so I work from that.
Names are tough because I always want it to be perfect.

4. Why did you decide to self-publish your books?

A lot of thought went into it, but ultimately I wanted to keep full control over what went into the novel.
Also because of health reasons it's easier for me to do everything via the Internet.

5. What is the weirdest thing you've ever done?

Went into the sea when it was freezing cold and I was fully clothed, in fairness it wasn't planned, I collapsed.
Other than that I can't think of anything.

Oh I did move house with only 2 weeks notice. My family and I had to pack up 16 years worth of stuff, book the moving vans, and buy all the packing boxes in just 2 weeks! 

6. What is one thing you want to do before you die and why?

Travel, I've never been outside of the UK and I really want to travel. I'm not fussy about where, I just want to see other countries.

7. Do you have a playlist that you listen to while writing?

I don't, though I do listen to music when I write, mostly it's indie/alternative stuff. I love sleeping at last right now, great band and also Angus and Julia Stone.

8. Do you have any tips for people starting to write?

Read a lot and always have something with you that you can write on.

Interview with Susan Leigh Noble

Hey guys,
Today, Susan Leigh Noble is releasing her newest novel, Blood Bond, and to help announce it here's a little blog post.  Synopsis: Man severed the alliance with the dragons fifty years ago. But now an invading army marches north destroying everything in its path. The dragons believe only together can the invaders be defeated. They need an emissary. 

Womanizer. Drunk. Failure. Soren is many things. A leader isn’t one of them. But, Dex, the dragon that saves him from a cliff, believes different. Thrust into an adventure he never wanted, Soren’s life changes forever when during a battle Dex’s blood mixes with his blood creating a mythical blood bond – forever linking them. 

As the bond strengthens, Soren must decide whether to return to his old life or accept the bond and embrace his role in the battle against the invading army.

Hey guys!

So, I made these petitions and was hoping you guys could sign. :D So here is a little bit about them and the links to sign them. Also they are as a html on the side of this blog. ----->

First petition:
School Uniforms. What child likes to wear uniforms? My friends and I certainly don't. There is no one in the schools that I've been to - and have a uniform - like to wear them. We believe that we all should have the right to dress. What if it is in the wash or drying and you can't go to the store to buy it? What will you do? All you can do is get in trouble. They don't accept excuses. Some schools just give you a warning. However, some schools give you detention for it! Now, who wants that?! You may just wear the wrong shoes by accident or wrong jacket. Well, there's nothing you can do about it. You're doomed! So sign this petition to get rid of the awful uniforms! Link: http://www.change.org/petitions/schools-no-more-uniforms
