Interview with Daisy Whitney (and two ARCs of her new book are up for grabs!)

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

Today, I'm doing a Girlfriends' Cyber Circuit interview with Daisy Whitney about her new book, The Mockingbirds

Me: Tell us about your book in ten words or less!

Daisy: Underground, student-run justice system tries date rape case.

Me: What's the best writing advice you've ever been given?

Daisy: Write every day!

Me: What do you wish you'd known about being published/publishing before your book/first book came out?

Daisy: I wish I had know how awesome it is! I would have started writing sooner!

Me: What's the last book you read that you loved so much you had to tell everyone about it?

Daisy: The upcoming ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS by Steph Perkins. So freaking good!

Me: What blogs do you *have* to read?

Daisy: I read blogs through twitter. (You can find Daisy on twitter here)

Me: Random Bonus Question--what's your favorite salad dressing?

Daisy: Green Goddess!

Thanks for stopping by, Daisy, and to celebrate the release of The Mockingbirds (you can check out Daisy's facebook page for the book here), I'm giving away *two* ARCs (and yes, this contest is open internationally!)

For your chance to win one of the two ARCs, all you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what your current favorite song is by midnight EST this Friday, November 5th--and be sure to leave a way for me to contact you so I can if you win!

My current favorites are both songs that I have loved for a long time, but that I've been listening to a lot recently.

Ina Mina Dika - an old Bollywood song sung by Asha Bhosle - I love the jazzy-ness to this one.

Ready or Not by The Fugees - my fiancee and I were talking sampling the other day and how recognizing samples is what got me into hip hop - this song, strangely enough, uses a significant sample from Enya (new age singer) - she had to sue them to get paid for their using her work.

right now, it's "Let God Be God" by the Craig brothers. It's really encouraging:

I think I'll let God be God, I'm giving up control
I think I'll relax, step back, It's time for letting go
If you get the universe and say
A million years of soles
It's just the keeper of the creation knows
I think I'll let God be God

it just helps me remember that i'm SO not in control, and i don't need to worry! it's awesome :D

as far as a "Not-God-song," I'd have to say Crushcrushcrush by Paramore. Sexy song :P

My favorite song EVER is "She's A Genius" by Jet. It is definitely MY song.
But my current favorite song is "Sparks Fly" by Taylor Swift. I'm working on my NaNoWriMo novel right now and this describes my 2 MCs so well.

Can't wait to read The Mockingbirds! Sounds fantastic and beautiful.
