@CoraCarmack Interview & Giveaway Hop

I have a special treat for you today! I'm very excited about this post because I met Cora Carmack in July at the Romance Writers of America (RWA) Librarian Day in Atlanta. She was on a panel that explained the rise of the new genre, New Adult. You can read more about that experience here.

Since then I have been following Cora as she has released several more books. Let me tell you, this girls rocks at social media. From the cover reveals to the contests, she is working tirelessly to promote her work and this fabulous genre. She did a wonderful contests where she autographed hundreds, if not thousands of copies of her book Finding It, but only a few had special inscriptions. If you found one of those inscriptions and messaged her about it, then she would feature your name as a character in a book. How neat! This prompted me to go to 4 Targets! Sadly, I didn't find one, but it was a wonderful experience. See? It is going that extra mile with your fans that will create life long fans. She graciously agreed to one of my silly interviews, where the questions are light-hearted and ridiculous. I also have a copy of Losing It to giveaway to one lucky winner. Enjoy and Good Luck!

Silly Author Interview Questions for Cora Carmack
(Because these are way more fun than regular questions)

1          What song always gets stuck in your head?
Oh man, there are so many. I usually find myself singing anything and everything by the Lumineers or Ed Sheeran. Or some completely off the wall older song like I Will Survive or I Heard It Through the Grapevine

Left Handed or Right Handed? Right handed
What is the inspiration behind Bliss’ name? (This isn’t silly, but I am very intrigued by the thought process behind how authors name their characters) I wish I knew! I get this question all the time. I remember searching baby name websites for Garrick’s name, but Bliss was just Bliss from the moment I knew her.

If I were to give you a cookie, what kind of cookie would it be?
Chocolate Chip. I like the classics. J

Which book have you read over and over again?
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix holds the record for my most re-reads of all time. But I’m a BIG re-reader, so I’ve re-read most of my favorites at least a handful of times.

Guiltiest pleasure TV show?
 At the moment… Bitten. It’s based on a book by Kelley Armstrong and is about werewolves. It’s in its first season, and while there are some definite cringe worthy moments, I’m still enjoying it. Also… Reign. They’ve pretty much abandoned all sense of historical accuracy, but my addiction doesn’t seem to care.

What is the worst job you have ever had?
 You know… I’ve never had an absolutely unbearable job, but in college I worked the fitting room at Target, and boy do I have some retail horror stories.

Favorite alcoholic beverage?
 Margarita with LOTS of salt. J

What three things do you never leave home without?
 My phone, headphones, and my wallet. I *try* to never leave home without chapstick, but I frequently forget and HATE that.

What song would you sing to at karaoke?
Oh, that’s easy. My go-to karaoke song is Ice, Ice Baby. I memorized all the words when I was in middle school, and still know them to this day. 

Open to US residents only
