I LOVE bragging about friends books. Writerly Wednesdays here are dedicated to writers and readers. If you've published anything for Young Adults with a fantastic twist (fantasy in all varieties, paranormal, specultative ficiton, horror, sci-fi, dystopian, cheese, etc.), shoot me an email (crystal AT crystal-collier DOT com). I'll be shouting about an awesome books, sharing new covers, or participating in book releases every week--and I'd love to share yours. Spots are filling up quick, so schedule date now.
Readers, pop back in for the chance to win stuff and learn about awesome reads.
This last Wednesday we played the truth or lie game about Catherine Stine, author of Ruby's Fire. (Check the book out--it's awesome!) Catherine told us two truths and one lie about herself, and those who guess correctly were entered into a random drawing for a free copy of her book. The options were:
1. Catherine sat next to Tom Petty on a first class plane ride to LA.
2. Her son's band played All Along the Watchtower with Eddie Vedder.
3. Buddy Guy invited her to a private bash.
We had some amazing guesses, and people who tore apart the facts, analyzing them. (We love you deep thinkers!) I wish we could smother all of you in cheese for participating, and we (both Catherine and I) had so much fun with this.
So, the answer is:
#1. Catherine did not actually sit next to Tom Petty on a first class plane ride to LA.
Way to go those of you who guessed right! You are officially human lie detectors. And the winner is:
Congrats! Friends, I look forward to chatting at you all after my road trip. Writerly Wednesdays will continue on July 24th. Be sure to stop in then for another AWESOME book and chance to win.
And now, out of curiosity, what is your favorite, secondary, and tertiary reading genres?
