Know Me Better 12/29



“Know Me Better”

Each week I will pick 5 questions off of my author interview list to answers.

I invite you to share your answers to these questions as well.  You can share them as a comment on this post or share them on your own blog and link up to this post.

This Week’s Questions:

Favorite restaurant?
What is your view on self publishing?
How do you feel about banned books? Do you have a favorite?
Are you for or against books being made into movies?
Top 3 things on your bucket list?

Favorite restaurant?
I love the Olive Garden but can be happy just about anywhere.  I especially love Italian and Mexican food.

What is your view on self publishing?
Self publishing is awesome when it is done right. Some of my favorite authors self publish. Unfortunately it seems lately way too many people rush to publish and put out unedited, poorly done works that give self-publishing a bad name.

How do you feel about banned books? Do you have a favorite?
My take on Banned Books: All books have their place, but not all books belong on every shelf. I wrote post on it a couple years ago, my opinion hasn’t change:

As far as a favorite probably Harry Potter.

Are you for or against books being made into movies?
I’m all for it if they do a good job. Unfortunately all to often they don’t do a good job.  99.9% of the time books are better.

Top 3 things on your bucket list?
Get out of debt
Remodel our house or move to a new one (we have some seriously outdated flooring)
Take my grandkids on “grandma adventures” (something my mom did with my kids before she passed away – although I need grandkids before I can do this and my oldest is still in high school so hopefully it will be a while before anyone calls me grandma)

Now it’s your turn! Share an answer to one or more of these questions as a comment or post your answers on your blog and link up here!  You can grab the linky code and add it to your post if you would like.
