THE INFINITE BLOG TOUR: Sequel to Gates of Thread and Stone.

By now most of you know that GATES OF THREAD AND STONE was my top YA read in 2014. You can see my ★★★★★ review, HERE. So of course I was over the moon to get a spot on its sequel's, THE INFINITE, blog tour. Thank you, Lori!

Four things I want you to know about these books before we continue:

1. I consider them Fantasy/Dystopian/Science Fiction.
2. They are not about time travel.
3. I am not big on romance, but I love the way the romace is written in these novels.
4. I usually do not like reading about the type of immortals in this story (no not vampires), but was tricked into liking them. Ha!

 Now on with the author interview!


I have decided my new interview "thing" for this blog, be it author, blogger, or character is going to be questions from the Vanity Fair version of the famous Proust Questionnaire.

Lori is my first Prousting, so I was nice and let her pick the questions she wanted to answer. Here we go...
What is your idea of perfect happiness?

Reading in silence with a cup of hot cocoa and a bowl of chocolates.

What is your greatest fear?

Heights. And large insects. But also to be forgotten.

What historical figure do you most identify with?

The Easter Bunny. Because chocolate eggs.

Which words or phrases do you most over use?

What do you regard as the lowest depths of misery?

To feel like you're alone.

Where would you like to live?

Scotland. Japan. Somewhere in the US where it isn't frigid 6 months out of the year.

What is your favorite occupation?

Writing. Is this a trick question?

What is your motto?

If I had a motto, it would be...

※ I wonder how much time she gets to read in silence while being a mom? And, I wonder if Scotland has anything to do with her uber-fangirling over Outlander?※


Book number one, GATES OF THREAD AND STONE, is an ebook steal at $2.00 right now.

And an ebook of THE INFINITE is also a must have at $3.99!

You can find both books on Kindle Unlimited.

  1. Oooh, that's such a great idea for interviews, La! I loved the answers!! And I'd love to live in Scotland for a while myself too!

    1. Does your love of Scotland have anything to do with Outlander?!

  2. I would love to live in Scotland! Though it's mostly because I have ancestors from there (and some super distant relatives living there), and because I spent months doing research on Inverness and Loch Ness for my 2013 NaNoWriMo story. That's a pretty cool idea for interviews La La

    1. Your NaNoWriMo was about Loch Ness???? I love the Nessie thing. Did you post it anywhere?

  3. Great interview! I love the idea of "Prousting" people, and it was very nice of you to let Lori choose her questions. Also, now I want to curl up with some hot chocolate, a nice book, and a bowl of chocolate, because that DOES sound lovely.

  4. Great interview! I love the idea of using the Proust questionnaire. I know you're recommended this series to me and it definitely sounds interesting. *adds to TBR*
    Cassi @ My Thoughts Literally

  5. Ohhh the first book is so cheap! GAH I REALLY WANT TO TRY IT. You've pretty much convinced me these books are glorious and I'm so so so keen to try them. XD Be a unicorn is fabulous life advice. This author is AWESOME.


Thank-you for dropping by! I love to chat, so comments get a lot of love.
