Blogger Interview: The Reader’s Hollow


1. What trope do you wish authors would run far, far away from?

I have a link! Well, it’s not mine but I liked the viewpoint. To sum it up, it explains that tropes (though eye-rolling at times) are some of the closest to home. They’re the most true in our lives. Does love happen at first sight? Yup and I roll my eyes ever time. Though sometimes, the author has a way of making this particular trope perfect for the story and the characters.

2. The one book you’ll re-read over and over and over:

I’m a bad, bad person. I’ve never done this. There have been some excellent stories, ones I can’t get out of my head but I’ve never revisited the novel. If I ran out of new books I’d probably re-read “Let the Right One In” by John Ajvide Lindqvist because it got me reading again after a dry spell.

3.  If you could rewrite one book to change one part of it, which book would you choose and what would you change?

This I have done! And, second thought, this also makes me a bad person haha, but I was nine years old. It was “My Babysitter is a Vampire” by Ann Hodgman. It was mostly the same except for a few scenes at the end where I added more action. I retitled it, “My First Vampire” then bound it with duct tape and a pencil-colorer cover.

4. Do you have a favorite place to read?

My bed or the couch usually but I can read anywhere really.

5. Tell us a little bit about why you started book blogging:

I wanted to help out authors. My first book, a novella called “Zombie-Killer Bill” was published in 2011 and I realized that marketing was a whole new ballgame and I showed up without a glove or a bat. It’s still a small blog but I’m having so much fun learning about new stories and authors I’m quite happy how it’s been growing.

6. What’s the one thing you can’t live without?

My cellphone. I have a technology addiction.

7. And finally a quick round of pick one:

Coffee or Tea: TEA!

Sweet or Salty: Salty

Chocolate or Vanilla: Chocolate Mmmmmmm

Hot or Cold: Cold

Laptop or PC: Laptop

Paperback or Ebook: Paperback
