Something for Fun
by Julie Anne Lindsey
First, I need to thank you, Vy for having me over to your blog! Blog tours are a lot of fun! It’s a complete freak out, but I get to meet lots of new bookish friends and bloggers and find favorites on my trip. It’s been so much fun, I thought I’d tell you how I ended up on this tour.
I am writing this blog post on the same day I finished Mockingjay. Last week I borrowed The Host from the library and fiddled around trying to want to read it for about 35 pages before I gave up. Then, I decided to go see The Hunger Games. BUT I hadn’t read it, so I quick got it on my Kindle and started reading. OMG. I read straight through the night and *luved*. So, I got the next one. I liked Catching Fire even better than The Hunger Games. I tried telling people about it but they didn’t care. LOL I was completely swept away.
Then I got Mockingjay.
Mockingjay had me wound so tightly I was barking orders at my family and wanting to scream and break things and hide and go bazonkers. It started out nice enough but then it all turned to horror and I could barely stand myself. I get invested you see. LOL I love books where I get carried away and in Mockingjay - away I went.
I rarely read books that get me all upset. Life is dramatic and stressful enough without putting myself in those situations. I was never one who needed “a good cry.” I don’t like movies meant to entice tears or stories with animals because I know someone will be mean to them. I like to laugh and or swoon. Both is a double bonus. Which is what I aim for in my romances. I think of them as romantic comedies : ) I aim for a witty heroine who cracks me up. But, I haven’t always fancied myself a romance author. A few years ago, when I signed my first publishing contract, the story was as far from a romance as possible. I’ve changed a lot since then, but the contract moved forward and now…..it’s here.
My debut novel arrived in print last month, Death by Chocolate. It’s not a romance, but it’s as far from stressful as they come, AND it makes me laugh. I like to laugh, and I like to write what makes me smile. Death by Chocolate is a nutty tale of harmless looking women with a mounting body count. I also like irony. LOL. Beware of the quiet ones they say.
If you’re in the mood to let loose and smile at the inconceivable, try my sweet ladies. But don’t try their goodies. You have been warned. LOL Death by Chocolate is available now on Amazon and at Barnes & Noble. I hope it will make you smile : )
