Blogoversary Interview: Marie J S Phillips

During all of 2012 I was so busy with life that I was unable to pay any real attention to my blog and it’s purpose. I still made posts but not with the fervor of the prior year. Now that I am coming up on my anniversary of starting this blog and my life has become somewhat less cluttered I can start to give it a little more attention. I wanted to kick off this year with something new and fun but I also wanted a chance to give authors a way to shout out to readers. This blogs last anniversary I tried to get authors to give away a digital copy of their book and saw some success with that. However this year I do not want to just have authors giving away books to entice readers into checking them out. Therefore, I invite authors to host me on their blog, website or venue to ask me any questions they feel like asking. I would also like it if they would gift one copy of their paperback to the first person to comment on that post. If there are any authors that would like to participate that would be awesomesauce. But wait there is more. Below you will find some crazy questions that I would like to present to those authors willing to host me. Please copy and paste these questions, answer them and then email it as an attachment to me at arobbins 78 @ gmail dot com. Along with the questions provide me with all the links you can imagine and an excerpt of your book if you would like. Don’t be bashful, the world already knows you are crazy, that is why you write books anyway. After I get the answers to the below I will post them in the order received.

This author is a self professed "GreenHorn" in the blogging world. Let us see how a greenhorn has fun shall we.

Please welcome Marie J S Phillips

Depends-do they have red blood or blue?

If the former, yes, if the latter, nope.

How many times do you use the word “at” in your latest book?

Marie J S Phillips
You really want me to go count them all in a 700 page novel??? Bwahahahahahah NO

Free Book Reviews
You are endowed with the job of creating one word to describe all human emotions in one word. What word would you create and why?

Marie J S Phillips
Intellimadlovcrazi. We’re intelligent creatures driven by our emotions, so much so at times we forget to use our brains.

Free Book Reviews
If our time is “my time” plus “your time” then why do we not get twice as much time to complete a task together?

Marie J S Phillips
Because time is not cooperative. It is what it is. Tick, tick, tick into the future. . .no matter what we humans do to alter that.

None-bite the bugger!

You walk into a bathroom and someone left a book laying there. What is the title and why?

Marie J S Phillips
Haven’t seen a book in a bathroom in decades. Last one I recall is one of my father’s girlie mags when I was in HS. The reason is obvious ha!

Free Book Reviews
You get abducted by aliens. Where do they take you and why?

Marie J S Phillips
If I am lucky, its my Furlites and they take me away from this nutjob human society to their planet because my job of scribing their stories to Human society is done.

Free Book Reviews
You wake up somewhere strange completely naked. Why?

Marie J S Phillips
Someone obviously drugged me without my knowledge.

Free Book Reviews
You have to give a deaf, dyslexic directions to your next book signing. How do you accomplish this?

Make a backwards /sideways map and hope for the best.

Free Book Reviews
Finish this joke. An aardvark, moose and platypus enter a bar…

Marie J S Phillips
and everyone —ah forget it-- I suck at jokes!

Free Book Reviews
Why is it that when people are asked what they would take with them to a deserted island, no one says “boat”?

Marie J S Phillips
I suppose that is just assumed you’d arrive by wrecked boat. Who’d think of taking two, though most larger boats have dingys. So I guess one does indeed take boats with you.

Free Book Reviews
If the fans of Doctor Who are called “whovians” and Whos come from Whoville, are they one in the same?

Marie J S Phillips
No chance. As a Whovian myself, I have never lived in WhoVille, nor met Mr Grinch.

Free Book Reviews
You are allowed only one word from now on to use to describe everything. What word would you choose and why?

Marie J S Phillips
Is this a trick question? I waver between Fantastic and disgusting. . . .cannot choose. Most of the time, things are fantastic, but at other times in no way would I ever use fantastic for anything repulsive, idiotc or downright unexceptable! Hmm maybe Craptastic!

You wake up in the kitchen, chocolate syrup and whipped crème everywhere. Explain yourself.

Marie J S Phillips
Mmmm chocolate-tried to make some fabulous desert, drooling over the chocolate. In my zeal, I smacked my head on a cabinet. Dropped to the floor, out cold, flinging poor said desert in the making, all over the kitchen. I’ll clean it up-promise!

Free Book Reviews
If Einstein is right and the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results, would that not make sex insane?

Marie J S Phillips
Depends what one’s expectations are. If you’re gratified, nah. If no-yes. That said I think our species is somewhat insane anyway.

Free Book Reviews
How much was that puppy in the window?

Marie J S Phillips
FREE!

Free Book Reviews
Congrats, you made it to the last question. Why?

Marie J S Phillips
Because I am just a bit eccentric, and had to take a break from working on my writing anyway. and would be happy to give away a signed copy of my SciFi novel The Furlites of Aoriel Book I On Matissia Wings and maybe even throw in the 2nd book as a set.
