Ali: Describe your writing style in three words. Pam: Immersive, contextual storytelling
I’m very happy to have recruited a fellow Goodreads reviewer to my kittenside. I spent about ten minutes searching for someone whose reviews really got my attention and then once I found her I spent twenty reading what she was reviewing, what novels were in her TBRs, and bio. I knew Simona was perfect and wouldn’t need to be guided by me to find a place in writing an analysis and critique because this girl knows her mind and has the chops. She has confidence which I rank up there with Bunny and coffee in importance as far as my world is concerned. When I wrote her about co-blogging with me she didn’t worry about what I was asking to do; Simona only asked that I help her get used to doing things as I’ve set them up, locating places to get ARCs, and setting up blog tours. She is the human equivalent of pancakes, and kittens!
It is with every happiness that I give you, Ms. Simona Furnari!
Do I need to introduce Logan Kade? I mean it’s Logan-FREAKING-Kade! He’s the funnier and in my opinion, the yummier brother! RAOW! Mr. Kade, which part of your body is missing my tongue the most? #KadeBabe
I had a few weeks where I was dealing with some anonymous threats about posting what some people want to call ‘questionable’ information about the Fallen Crest King and Queen and the Second King… I would never make up this stuff and I think if you know these people you can clearly see for yourself the veracity of their character in these questionnaires so I have one thing to say to you haters, “Get fucked!”
I have done nothing at all wrong in befriending Sam, sending her a small getting-to-know-you email, wisely anticipating a the less than forthright answers from Sam, Logan and Mason and ensuring that my job be done by looking out for Sam and sending a Trojan horse that triggers a videostream directly from her laptop cam to a site that I can view. You–strangely, overreactionary–peeps blowing up my social media calling me a stalker are failing to realize that this stuff is available all over the internet. If it were really THAT illegal and THAT wrong someone would have written Facebook or Google and someone would have done something about it, like, right away. It’s still there so it’s okay to use it and I did it to show Sam, Logan and Mason in their home environment–you know just like those documentary people do ALL the time and no one EVER bitches when scientists go and live with people who eat other people or castrate women. No one ever looks at the documentarist as bad for what they are doing!
Time for part 2 of my 4 part, ‘Getting to Know You Questionnaire’ with the Fallen Crest Three or Fallen Four Three… or maybe I should just stick with calling them Sam, Mason and Logan. Today is Sam’s Four Threes Portion! This is four questions with three answers. I gave the same questions to all three of them and of course what I got back was not enough to diagram a sentence, but thanks to my handy dandy email attachment bug that allowed me to access their webcam and see and hear their conversation, I got to hear the three of them discuss their answers! #SQUEEE!
This is Sam’s and I have to admit that she is more girly girl on the inside when she was divulging her real answers with Logan and Mason than the word association answers she replied to me in email. I already said in the first post how disappointed I was about this… I’ve given it thought and she just doesn’t KNOW me yet and this is the perfect time for her to see she can trust me with her heart! I am showing her with this post that she can BE HERSELF in a safe place with me and I will ALWAYS have her back! Sam, me and you, sister of my heart! You and me, Besties! #BFFS4EVAH
I sent a “Getting to Know You Questionnaire” email to Sam, Mason and Logan because I’m one of those email friends that sends memes, chains and quizzes to everyone in my address book. You would know that if you would just accept my friend request on Facebook already because I sent it, like freaking weeks ago. I sent you five private messages because I think the first couple went to your “I don’t know who-the-eff-you-are-folder” and I asked our mutual friends to remind you to confirm my friend request. I dunno, I guess you could just be away on vacation and not checking notifications. I can’t tell though because you keep all your wall messages private…
ANYWAY, when I sent this the Fallen Fourth Three, I didn’t get a response right away, which was really disappointing and it hurt my feelings. I sat by my email and waited, refreshing my email every 30 seconds for about 5 hours before Sam sent back her reply and it was all one word answers. That really hurt. I’m a total fan and I know that those three are all really tight lipped and all but, I really thought that Sam would treat me better than to make me wait on the answers for that long and then give me the equivalent of fill in the blank. =(
THANK GOD, I spent that $1500 on that email trojan horse bug from that kid in China that allows me to flip on the webcam of those who open my attachments remotely. I got to actually see and hear the Fallen Fourth trio as they answered my questions amongst themselves! It pays to be up to date on webtech! So this ISN’T what Sam emailed me… this is what I got through watching those three on my videostream! I swear I will not ABUSE this set-up… I might just watch Logan when he is enjoying himself doing hand exercises or getting out of the shower. Don’t EVEN ask me for pics, I don’t believe in illegal dissemination of personal photos or information. People who do that on the internet are totally DUMB!
There are four parts to this interview: One is joint interview with all of them with a few questions and then I asked Sam, Mason and Logan the same four questions and you will see those in three different parts! Isn’t this totally exciting! This must be how that dude felt when he caught Kristen Stewart cheating on RPattz! I’m like bringing you the dirt on the Fallen Crest Three candid-like! Continue Reading
I got the dish on Minxy-Milly when she let me do a Making Love 101 Q&A this past week. The Queen of Grunting and Mistress of Moaning took a few minutes to let me get inside her head where she revealed the inner doings of how she creates love in her novels. Apparently, and thankfully, it is not at all like shifter mating because if she tried to convince me that she wrote great books using pheromones, wine and doggy style I’d have called a foul and demanded pics!
Please get a seat and open your notebooks. Pay attention! There will be a quiz at the end of this class. =) Continue Reading
Tijan’s giving the Tijanettes a long awaited treat all the sweeter than the kazillion sugary candy pieces she has been leaving a trail of through her sexy forest of moody stories and addictive characters. Mason is the prequel to the Fallen Crest novels and introduces us to the babe that steals Sam’s heart, and gives all of us Kade thirsty Tijanettes a look into the world through his pretty eyes. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mason. I’m pretty sure this novella is going to make panties dance and hearts moisten.
Welcome to this edition of the Substitute Book Reviewer. While Ali is recovering her equilibrium, I’m driving this bus for a few posts. Allow me to introduce myself, I’m Melanie Ting. And I’m a writer, not a reviewer. Therefore my reviews will lack the professional polish of Ali’s work, but I hope to make up for it with goofy charm, humour, and Canadian spelling.
Ali is my fairy godmother. She thinks I’m not confident enough about promoting my books. She’s always telling me to buck up and show some attitude. The truth is that I love my writing, but I don’t think it’s for everyone. I write romances, but they’re always about hockey. Oh, and cats. I didn’t notice until I had finished about six stories, that there were cats in every one of them. That’s why I asked Ali to review my book, and not because she’s crazy about sports. In fact, given that she’s a Cali girl, I’m pretty darn sure she hasn’t even seen a hockey game. But—cats! I figured I’d get at least one star for cats.
