[20 Questions] Willow Winters @willowwintersbb




When is your birthday?
Jan 2nd!
Where did you grow up?
Delaware, born and raised and still here!
Are you a morning person, or a night person?
Night person through and through. I’ve always been a night owl.
Why did you choose to write for the genre that you do?
It’s just what I love to write and the stories come to me easily.
What is your favorite season or holiday?
I love the spring and fall. Those two are my favorite seasons. The smells and beautiful scenery are what do it for me.
If you could go anywhere in the universe, where would you go, and why?
In the universe? I wish I knew more about space! I’ll stay on Earth and say I’d love to see Irish castles because I think they’re beautiful and a lot of my ancestry is Irish. 
If you could live with one person living, dead, or imaginary for one year in a tiny one bedroom apartment, who would you choose and why?
Oh my, this is a hard one. I would have to pick …. I’m struggling here! 
What are three things that you would put on your Bucket List?
See all the wonders of the world. Learn to say I love you in as many languages as possible. Visit all 50 states. Get a coffee cup from each ;) Go Scuba Diving and snorkeling in Bora Bora. There are so so so many things I want to do!!
What is the wallpaper on your cellphone?
Of my babies. Back when they were babies.
What are three things that you always keep handy at all times?
Coffee, my phone, and a hair clip.
What inspires you, or where do you look for inspiration?
When I try to sleep, inspiration just comes!
What is one thing that most people do not know about you?
Umm … my pinky is crippled. It’s curved just slightly. I was born with it a little crooked like that!
What is the weirdest thing that you have ever googled?
How to silently kill someone with a knife. If the FBI ever looks up my history on this computer, I’m screwed.
What is one piece of advice that you would give to future generations? To the opposite sex? 
Make the other person happy and they’ll want to make sure you’re happy. It’s that simple.
What is your most embarrassing moment?
I threw up on my husband (then boyfriend) in the middle of the night in his bed. I’d taken a Benadryl with wine and you really SHOULD NOT! It was awful, but he proposed two months later! If that didn’t scare him away I guess nothing will.
What is your most favorite time in History?
I’m not the biggest fan of history classes, but I will say that the 50s and women finding their voice and fighting for equality is definitely something that comes to mind and gives me a lot of motivation and inspiration. 
What is the most attractive, and the first thing you notice, about the opposite sex?
Shoulders. I don’t know why but I find shoulders extremely sexy.
Who is the first person you call when you are having a bad day?
My hubby or my sister. 
What kind of drunk person do you turn into when you drink?
I get happy and goofy.
How would you describe your favorite color to a blind person?
It’s the color of the small flowers called violets. It’s the color of the sunset only on rare days. Sometimes the ocean looks this color, but again it’s rare. It comes in a variety of shades sparse in nature but it’s soothing and calming when you see it.
If you could be any color in the big box of crayons, which one would you be?
Purple.
What do you put on your pizza?
Anything EXCEPT mushrooms. Which is what hubby likes on his pizza lol
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Strawberry!
Do you eat your feelings, or starve them?
I eat them and then spit them out constantly and make sure everyone knows how I feel lol
What is your biggest baddest guilty pleasure?
I don’t think it’s that bad but I love ice cream after sex and pedicures all the time. 
Do you ever google yourself?
I haven’t … but I’m going to now!
What is one food, or drink, that you could NEVER give up?
Coffee – duh!
If you could be on any reality TV show, which one would you choose?
A real housewives show or Big Brother.
If you were on death row, what would your last meal be?
Outback sirloin and shrimp skewer. I love that dish – I can already taste it!
Are you a Clutter Queen or a Neat Freak?
Neat Freak all the way!
If you were forced to open a bakery, what would you name it?
Sugary Sweets!
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Chewing with your mouth open – I hate that!
If there was a movie release about your life, who would you want to play you, who would play your love interest, and what type of movie would it be?
My love interest – Ryan Reynolds <3 nuff said!


Would You Rather…

See but never smell, or hear but never taste?
Oh gosh. I’ll go with See but never smell because I don’t want to give up taste!
Have the hiccups for the rest of your life, or always feel like you got to sneeze but never actually do it?
Hahahaha!! This is a funny one. I’ll go with hiccups! 
Know when you are going to die, or know how you are going to die?
oooh gosh. I’m going to go with when. 
Be alone for the rest of your life, or forever be surrounded by annoying people with bad body odor?
Ahh! I guess I would be alone, but I have access to internet right? Please say yes!
Always have to speak and write what’s on your mind, or never be able to speak or write again?
Always have to speak and write – I have to make that choice because to never be able to write or speak again would be horrible!
Be forever itchy, or be forever sticky?
EEEeep! I’m going to go with sticky, just because I hate being itchy. Although they do have a cream for itching… I’ll stick with my choice though. 
Be able to teleport wherever you want, or be able to read minds whenever you want?
Read minds! I could be like Sookie from True Blood!
Know the history of everything you touch, or be able to speak to animals?
Know the history. That would be amazing.
Live your worst day ever, over and over again, for one year; or lose one year of your life completely?
OMGosh! that’s a brutal one! The first sounds like torture, so I’ll take a year off my life. 
Be permanently transported 200 years into the future, or be permanently transported 200 years into the past?
oooh – in the future! 

Looking Forward...
What are you currently working on?
Damaged – the third book in the Sins and Secrets Series of Duets. I’m in absolute LOVE with it!
What other plans do you have with your writing?
To never ever stop and write all the stories I come up with – or at least as many as I can keep up with!

[Blog Tour] ADDICTED by Krys Fenner @FennerKrys @XpressoTours @ashiejayaponte #Giveaway #Review

 

Addicted
Krys Fenner
Publication Date: September 29th 2017
Genre:  Young Adult
Sixteen-year-old Bella Kynaston has been the victim of a brutal rape, by someone she can only describe as ‘the scar-faced man.’ With little recollection of what happened, she must somehow rebuild her life. Being the person she once was proves more difficult than she imagined.
To complicate matters, Bella has just met Jeremiah Detrone, the new guy in school. He’s attractive, funny, and smart. All things she’s ever wanted in a boyfriend. Too bad she’s conflicted over so many unexpected emotions. Without realizing it, she falls down a rabbit hole and begins walking a dangerous line between addiction and self-preservation.
As Bella works together with the police to bring her attackers to justice, will she be able to see it through to the end? And even if she does, will it only bring her more pain and misery? Or will she find an anchor in Jeremiah and figure out how to move forward?


First off, let me just point out how awesome the cover is. The synopsis really grabbed my attention, and gave me high expectations for this story. The story was well written, but it was a little difficult for me to stay with it. This story was interesting, but I had some trouble getting into it.

[20 Questions] RC Boldt @RC_Boldt




When is your birthday? 
January 14th
Where did you grow up? 
I grew up in northeastern Ohio. It scarred me for life since we would experience the “lake-effect” and get hammered with snow often. I’ve had a powerful aversion [read: hate] for the cold/anything to do with winter ever since.
What is your favorite season or holiday? 
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because we’ve always opened up our home to other military members who might not be able to travel home to their loved ones.
What are three things that you would put on your Bucket List?
 Running a 5K or 10K with my daughter; learning to surf; learning Muay Tai
What is the wallpaper on your cellphone? 
My father wearing a princess crown my daughter made and posing with my daughter. 💖
What are three things that you always keep handy at all times? 
Hand sanitizer, dental floss, and “boo-boo” ointment stick. All of these things are requested or needed on a regular basis by my hot mess of a toddler.
What is one thing that most people do not know about you?
I have two graduate degrees in completely different disciplines: one in Elementary Education and another in Forensic DNA & Serology
What is one piece of advice that you would give to future generations? To the opposite sex?
ALWAYS be yourself. Even if you feel like it might not be good enough or cool enough for others. There’s only one you, so own it.
Who is the first person you call when you are having a bad day? 
My husband, Matty. That guy is my rock.
What kind of drunk person do you turn into when you drink?
Oh, Lord. LOL I guess I’d probably have to say I turn into a more hardcore version of my sober make-friends-with-everyone-Italian self.
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Chocolate peanut butter.
What is one food, or drink, that you could NEVER give up?
 Sushi. If I didn’t have to worry about mercury poisoning, I’d probably eat it daily.
Do you sing in the shower? 
Occasionally.
Do any of the scenes in your books come from personal experience, or actually events, and are you willing to tell us about one? 
Oh, boy. BLUE BALLS definitely contained some actual events that happened in real life, either to me or my close friends. Only my close friends know which one actually happened to me due to the epic level of mortification. 😉
If you could be on any reality TV show, which one would you choose? 
Can we classify House Hunters as a reality-type show? Because I would LOVE to be on one of those shows and chime in [i.e. be a heckler of sorts] on the potential buyers’ conversation:Them: We want a house in the city, buuuut we don’t want neighbors. Or the noise from traffic. And the place has to have a ton of natural light, lots of windows.Me: So basically you want to live in the country…?
Or 
Them: We would love a place with an open concept and at least three thousand square feet.Them <once they tour a home that meets these specifications>: Mmm, no. This is way too open. Too cavernous.Me: Shall I show you this other place? It’s often referred to as an underground bunker. It’s super quaint and…
If you were on death row, what would your last meal be? 
Excellent sushi, good wine, and a few thick pieces of watermelon.
Are you a Clutter Queen or a Neat Freak? 
Neat freak. Things have to be/look orderly and organized.
If you were forced to open a bakery, what would you name it?
The Muffin Top.
What is your biggest pet peeve? 
People who chew with their mouths full.
Would You Rather… 
Have the hiccups for the rest of your life, or always feel like you got to sneeze but never actually do it? 
The sneeze feeling because whenever I get hiccups, I get them so bad they hurt.
Know when you are going to die, or know how you are going to die? 
How. Definitely how, because then I’d brainstorm all sorts of preventative measures and/or the gentlest, least traumatic way. I’m a planner.
Looking Forward...
What are you currently working on? 

I’m actually working on a co-writing project (details are still on lockdown for now) and DITCHED, an upcoming standalone featuring a supporting character from my second chance romance, He Loves Me…KNOT.
When is you next book possibly going to release? 

I’m tentatively planning for March 2018.
