It still surprises me that I’ve been here for only a short amount of time and I can be nominated for awards so quickly. All I can say is thank you to Zezee With Books, who’s nominated me for the Real Neat Blog Award. I’ve enjoyed interacting with her over the last month or so. I’ve been able to introduce her to a few comic characters she’s never heard of and I’ve been able to discover a few news books from reading her posts.
Thank and link the person who nominated you.
Answer the 7 questions your nominator has provided.
Nominate 7 other bloggers and create 7 questions for them.
Do you think you would survive a zombie apocalypse?
I’d like to think I could, but we can’t assume an actual zombie apocalypse would be anything like what happens in films. My strategy would be to hole up somewhere well-defended and fight to protect the ones I care about.
How do you think the phrase ‘taste the rainbow’ came about?
The first time I heard it was from a skittles advert, so that’s what I associate the phrase with.
If you happened to fall into a fairy world that somehow matched who or how you are, what sort of fairy world would that be?
A pretty grim place, balanced by bouts of sunshine.
Do you think you’d survive in Westeros?
Given that I love the ASOIF series I’d say there’s a good chance of that. I’d pledge my support to Dany and keep out of the way of her dragons.
What’s your favourite book by your favourite author?
My favourite book is Saint’s Blood by Sebastien De Castell. I can never give enough praise to The Greatcoat series. The reason it’s my favourite book is because it deals with themes such as idealism and religion. It’s what you believe is right vs what you’re supposed to believe is right. The characters are incredible and Falcio Val Mond is one of the most realistic protagonists I’ve ever read.
If you use e-readers, what needed change would you make to them?
As the short stories I’ve published are online, I’d try and make e-readers more informed about my stories before I mentioned them. I’ve started to do that on The Comic Vault by posting samples of my fiction in the hopes that people would become interested in buying works I’ve published in future.
What’s the last nonfiction book you read?
The last nonfiction book I read was The Devil In The White City by Erik Larson. It deals with the 1893 Chicago World Fair and the serial killer H.H Holmes. It’s a dark, gripping book that’s written ike a novel, but everything in it is true.
