I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the HANNAH GOODHEART AND THE GUARDIAN OF TIME by C. Michael Morrison Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my post and make sure to enter the giveaway!
Turning thirteen can be difficult – especially when a time-traveling thief steals your necklace, and a brewing temporal conflict turns your birthday party into a mission to save the universe. As Hannah and her friends chase the thief across time and space, they learn her necklace is more than a pretty piece of jewelry. Only one person can control the powerful pendant, and they must find them before the entire universe is wiped from history.
Myth and magic collide as they race to find The Guardian of Time.
Hannah Goodheart and the Guardian of Time excerpt from ch. 1
- What is on your nightstand?
I just started reading Starsight by Brandon Sanderson and I’m wrapping up Una McCormack’s Star Trek: Picard novel, The Last Best Hope. I also have my latest edition the SCBWI Bulletin underneath. Just saying.
- What author would you totally fan?
I’m a book nerd, so there are many. Want the whole list?
I’d have to say though, I’m a big Anthony Horowitz fan. Got to admit, I had a moment when he sent me a DM in response to a post on Twitter. The brief interaction I was able to have with him just solidified my appreciation for, who I believe is, one of the coolest guys in the business.
- What makes you cringe?
When they give you dirty silverware at a restaurant. Seriously. Eew! It’s SO gross.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
At the point I really began writing seriously, I had a carefully ordered outline… character back stories… details upon details about the world I was going to build. About two thousand words into it, I realized the story had taken on a life of its own and my outline had died a quick death. (At least I had that to comfort me in my grief) What I discovered was the joy of writing organically. Now, I know what the story is about. I know the main characters. In fact, I get to know them well before I write a single word. They tell the story. I let them decide how it all will unfold. For me, it’s incredibly satisfying when the story concludes. I’m just as surprised as the reader.
- Is there a word you love to use?
Yeah, that’s the word. I’m a podcaster on the Trek.fm network, and I annoy myself with how often I drop that word. I can only imagine how it must needle the listeners. I’m thankful for skillful editing. I know… it’s not rational to love a word so much and hate hearing myself say it. As for written words I love to use—I’m a lover of words in general. Words are so incredibly powerful and taken entirely too much for granted.
Also, if you have any pictures of your pet you would like to share, please attach them. My readers love animals!
A couple pictures of my standard poodle, Princess are attached. She says hello!
