My beloved and favorite author to stalk, Gini Koch, tagged me with the Meme Challenge this past week. A meme is basically a mini-interview, started by someone who picks a set number of people to answer a group of questions, those people copy the questions to their blog and pass them on to the set number (in this case 3) of unsuspecting victims, who pass it along, and so-forth.
Since we all know how much I love wacky fun, let’s do this, bitches!
1. If you could have any superpower, what would it be? Why?
I already have a superpower. I can’t tell you what it is, though. It’s super duper top secret, but if I lurv you, you will feel the effects of it in your life. Okay! I confess. It is the power of the geek. So, long as I follow that inner geek, the one that gushes over some of my wackier ideas, things work out for the best.
2. Who is your style icon?
My younger sister. If Heather says I look like a Cat in the Hat Lorax in a pair of pants then I do. I don’t cry. I don’t flip her the finger. I simply nod, smile and go grab more jeans to try on. The great thing is, when I do look good, she totally lets me know it and nothing feels better.
3. What is your favorite quote?
My favorite? Only one? Come on, please? Okay, fine. One.
“Be the change you want to see in the world.” Only I like to insert different things for world. And change. “Be the laughter you want to feel in your belly.”
4. What is the best compliment you’ve ever received?
I did almost cause a car accident while crossing the street and a driver couldn’t stop leering. That was funny. But, my favorite, all time compliment had to be when my career coach and my editor both told me they could not put Love Lust down. Wow. That is the best feeling ever.
5. What playlist/CD is in your CD Player/iPod right now?
I try to listen to Gini Koch’s Playlist page often since she has uber cool taste in music and I thereby feel closer to Kitty and Martini who are only weeks away from being back in my hands for their next adventure, Alien Tango (pre-order NOW!). I also am creating a playlist for Drowning Lust, my coming Nanowrimo project and look for sultry, sexy stuff like Massive Attack and Justin Timberlake.
6. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
I can be both. I love nights but find being bright and cheery in the morning is easy with a cup of coffee and cartoons on for the kids.
7. Do you prefer dogs or cats?
I speak cat. I love dogs, too. But, a kitty on my lap is the best ever. I love how snotty and particular they are. You must earn a cat’s love.
8. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
Originally the project meant my place to disclose my process of going Indie with Play Fling. Now, it means my career building brick by brick. Also, it references Project Pay It Forward, wherein I try to help make three debut authors (Gini Koch, Erin Kellison, Carolyn Crane) into bestsellers. Cuz I love ’em. And I stalk.
So…anyone have a few awesome listening suggestions for my new playlist? Think succubus and erotica.
