Interviewing and Interviewed

If my first love is writing, then my second love is book blogging. One of the many 'jobs' of a book blogger is to bring the readers closer to the authors via fun and short interviews. I've had my blog for about a year now, and I decided that it was probably time to do just that. There was just one little problem.

I was intimidated.

The prospect of talking to these people, these amazing creatures whose books held special places in my bookshelf and my heart, these paragons of YA literature!...When I read and fall in love with a book, I put that author in a shinny platinum pedestal with a plaque that reads "This person rocks!." My only question was, would they even talk to a lowly peasant blogger like me?

The answer was yes. Why? Because they're human! Not demi-gods...And because they have to market their stuff. This only clicked in my head this past week when I found myself on the other side of the coin when a fellow classmate interviewed me. Yes, my first interview as a writer/author! I'm still all giddy and excited about it. It's up on Mary DeSantis's blog Out of the Lock Box if anyone is interested <.<

I also interviewed her, and will be interviewing other classmates. So stay tuned :)
