#TheVotingGamePH: interview with Peter Gulgowski (and giveaway!)


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hello. Peter! It’s such an honor to have you on my blog today. Let’s kick this interview off with a few questions about yourself. What are three quick facts about yourself that most of your readers might not know yet?

Thank you! I love cooking, learning to play different instruments (piano, viola, cello), and I am trying to learn to speak fluent French!

You’ve written a handful of books under the dystopian and/or science fiction genre. What are some sci-fi books and films you’d personally recommend?

That’s tough! There are so many! For films, I loved What Happened to Monday?, Alien, and I, Robot. For books, I really enjoyed Divergent, City of Bones, and Dark Matter.

When you’re not working on writing projects and author stuff, what are you usually up to?

As a full-time college student, when I’m not writing, I am usually in class or studying for an upcoming exam. However, for fun, I will hang-out with friends, catch up on a few shows I’m watching on Netflix or Hulu, or I’ll play video games. I’m fairly normal for a twenty-one-year-old when I’m not writing! Haha.

Interview with Jay E. Tria: You Out of Nowhere

Jay E. Tria is a Filipino author of contemporary young adult and new adult romance. Sometimes, she writes urban fantasy/paranormal stories, too. As a #romanceclass author, her latest novel, You Out of Nowhere, is the first of many upcoming steamy Filipino romance novels from the #romanceclassFlair project.

Jay is often inspired by daydreams, celebrity crushes, a childhood fascination with Japanese drama and manga, and an incessant itch to travel.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hello, Jay! It’s so great to have another talented Filipino author on my blog today. I’d like to start this interview off with a few questions about you, if that’s all right. If you weren’t a writer, what alternative career path do you see yourself in?

Hi Shealea! I’m actually a banker most hours of my life, and a professor sometimes too. Totally unrelated to being a writer, I know, but it helps with the plot bunnies.

Interview with Ana Tejano: Keep the Faith (+ GIVEAWAY)

Ana Tejano has been in love with words and writing ever since she met Elizabeth Wakefield when she was in Grade 3. She has contributed several non-fiction pieces in print and online publications, and has been blogging for years. When she’s not writing, she works as a communications manager for a payroll outsourcing firm, and serves in CFC Singles for Christ in every other time that she doesn’t spend reading or sleeping. She lives in Metro Manila and is also known by another name in her other circles (but it’s not a secret identity, really).


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hello, Ana! It’s great to have a fellow Filipina on my blog today. I’d like to start this interview off with a few questions about you, if that’s all right. If you weren’t a writer, what alternative career path do you see yourself in?

Hi Shealea! So glad to be here. If I weren’t a writer, I would probably be working in IT. I graduated with a Computer Science degree, so the tech path was one that I took, but then I found myself in marketing and communications. In a way, I still write for a living, but the fiction I do on the side. The day job helps me fund my book obsession and all other indie writer expenses.

Interview with Jessica Peterson: Spanish Lessons (+ Giveaway)

Jessica Peterson began reading romance to escape the decidedly unromantic awkwardness of her teenage years. Having found solace in the likes of Mr. Darcy, Jamie Fraser, and Edward Cullen, it wasn’t long before she began creating tall, dark and handsome heroes of her own.

Currently, Jessica is the self-published author of the Study Abroad series, a fun New Adult Romance with hot European guys. She lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband, Mr. Peterson, and her smelly Goldendoodle Martha Bean.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hello, Jessica! Thank you very much for agreeing to be here today. Let’s start this interview off with a few questions about you. If you weren’t a writer, what alternative career path do you see yourself in?

Hello Shealea! First, thank YOU for having me—this is so fun. If I weren’t a writer, I’m honestly not sure what I’d be. Writing has always kinda been my dream job, and I’m super lucky I get to do it. But if I had to choose, I think I’d like to be an interior designer or a clothing designer. I love all things design—I also love to shop!—and it’d be cool to do it professionally.

Sarah Glenn Marsh is an author of young adult novels and children’s picture books. Her debut novel is a historical fiction story (with a hint of paranormal elements) entitled Fear the Drowning Deep, which is expected to be officially published on October 2016.

An avid fantasy reader from the day her dad handed her a copy of The Hobbit and promised it would change her life, she’s been making up words and worlds ever since. She lives in Virginia with her husband and their tiny zoo of four rescued greyhounds, a bird, and many fish.

When she’s not writing, she’s often painting, or engaged in nerdy pursuits from video games to tabletop adventures.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, Sarah! I’m so pleased to have you on my blog today. Thank you for being here! Let’s start this interview off with a couple of questions about you. If you weren’t a writer, what alternative career path do you see yourself in?

Thank you for having me!

If I weren’t a writer, I would absolutely be a veterinarian. Outside of publishing, helping animals is my greatest passion (as is evidenced by my ‘zoo’ of rescue dogs, fish, and a bird!).
