New Feature: Author interview!
My friend, Jaclyn, released her debut novel this week! It is a really fun YA adventure called Stolen Luck. I got to do a fun interview with Jaclyn AND she is giving away some copies of the e-book that you can win!
First : the book cover (edit: new book cover) and blurb-
Book Blurb: Sixteen year old Megan Crenshaw has everything going for her until the day a leprechaun shows up on her doorstep and steals all her luck. Not only that, he follows her around and wreaks havoc in her life. With the help of her friends, Megan must get her luck back before he manages to destroy her life and the lives of all those around her.
Next: The author bio-
Author Bio: Jaclyn is an Idaho farm girl who grew up loving to read. She developed a love for writing as a senior in high school, when her dad jokingly said she was the next Dr. Seuss (not even close but very sweet). She met her husband, Steve at BYU and they have six happy, crazy children that encourage her writing. After owning a bookstore and running away to have adventures in Australia, they settled back down in their home in Utah. Jaclyn now spends her days herding her kids to various activities and trying to remember what she was supposed to do next.
Then: The interview:
Sis for “Sentiment”- What is the nearest, dearest to your heart part of having your new book out?
I get to share my baby with everyone else. I worked really hard on it and I can’t wait to share my characters with the world.
Tis for “terrific” – Which of your characters do you think is terrific and why?
I think Megan is terrific because she has everything falling apart and she stays positive.
Ois for “obstacles”- What kinds of obstacles (without spoilers) do your characters overcome?
– Megan had everything going for her all the time so she had to learn how to work for things instead of always having them given to her.
Lis for “leprechaun” (obviously) – What would you like everyone to know about leprechauns before heading into your adventure?
Leprechauns are tricky little guys. You don’t want to mess with them, or the joke will be on you!
Eis for “exciting”—What do you think is the most exciting thing about your book?
To me the most exciting thing was watching the characters take over the story. There’s a part where Adam took over the story and did things his way. It wasn’t at all what I expected!
Nis for “new” – Your main character runs into a lot of ‘new’ things in this story, from things she didn’t know existed to new relationships. What kinds of ‘new’ things have you encountered in your life that you think have changed you?
My life is full of all kinds of new things because we can’t sit still. We opened a new bookstore (which got me where I am today). We moved to Australia and that taught us what we were made of. I have six kids and each of them have brought new adventures with each of their personalities.
LUCK – If you could choose one thing to happen to you, based on really good luck, what would you choose?
Right now, I would really, really like to go to Ireland. If I were lucky, that trip would fall into my lap. (Selling my house would also be considered lucky at this point…)
