Final Count Down for the Global Ebook Awards!

I have to admit now that it is only a few weeks away I am really nervous about the announcement if my book Fantasy Time Inc. will make finalist for the Global eBook Awards. I have everything crossed because I would love to be in the final running for my first book award. It's funny because it is really an honor to just be nominated, I thought that was just a silly line but I am so happy to be eligible to be up for the award. Wish me luck!
Also on Goodreads I have a new feature on my Author Site, it is a Q and A section. All you have to do is join and ask ;
Don't forget to try and get a free copy of my book Fantasy Time Inc on the Goodreads giveaway! Here is the link;
Let's Welcome Larissa Hinton for interview about her writing style, reading and new books!
What was the first book you remember loving? Do you still own it?
I remember loving Shel Silverstein's book of poetry (I want to say Where The
Sidewalk Ends) and unfortunately I do not own it. I own another book of poetry
from him and I love reading it from time to time.
What kind of books do you like to read? Do those books have an affect on your own writing?
I love to read paranormal romance, fantasy, urban fantasy, graphic novels, romantic suspense and manga books . . . I could continue the list but my recent obsession is Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series!

Absolutely! Since I recently expanded my reading into different genres,
my writing has expanded into different genres and I've experimented with
different writing styles.
Do you remember what is the first book that touched you deeply?
Torn by Amanda Hocking definitely left an impact on me emotionally. I had to take a step
back and face facts about my life. Is there an era of writing that affects you? 1920, 1800’s so forth?Not that I can think of on the top of my head.
Where do you like to write? Is there a favorite nook or corner?
I use to write in my library when I first started out writing. It was my favorite place,
surrounded by all those books and instant references just in case.
Do you prefer one genre to another?
Depends on my mood. Right now I'm definitely want to read historical romance, contemporary romance and paranormal romance (YA and adult).A couple of months ago, I simply wanted a book in my hands to get away from all of the writing. So with time and mood, things change.
Do you like the feel of a book in your hands or do prefer an electronic devises?
That is still to be determined. I am willing to try electronic devices since it seems like my life (not to mention my back and arms) will benefit from using the eReader instead of print books, but I don't know if I prefer one over the other yet. But I am willing to open my mind and see what happens.
Can you tell us about what your working on now?
Absolutely! I'm wrapping up the last edits on my YA paranormal romance called Angel Diaries.
Here's the blurb;
Lindsey's life couldn't have been any more ordinary. So, she had two guys
fighting over her, a psychic friend and a school dominated by Goths but, other
than that, life was good. That is until horrible nightmare start about her mother being
ripped apart by a monster changed her life from the inside out. Literally. Her
whole world was full of lies. She's not even human. She's an Angel.
Additionally, I'm writing short stories and poetry for Everblossom 2.
Here's a snippet of that blurb:

Thirsty for more?

Prepare to dig deeper into the afterlife through three more stages from decompose, rebirth then back to regrowth rediscover how the flower lives at night.
Thanks Larissa! Great interview.
Till next time...
