I'm happy to introduce my friend Sara Hubbard. Sara is the author of Blood, She Read published by Etopia Press. Blood, She Read is Sara's debut, and you can imagine how busy she's been since the release a couple of weeks ago. Before we find out more about Sara, I'd like to announce the winner of last week's drawing from comments. Stephen Tremp's lucky comment number was drawn for a $5 Starbucks or Amazon card. I'm thankful for readers, and I love comments. This month, I'll give away a $5 Amazon or Starbucks gift card every week. Leave a comment, and it automatically counts as an entry.
Sara Hubbard's Three Wishes
Brinda, thank you so much for letting my hijack your blog today! I promise I’ll be good.
It’s been a little over a week since I became a published author! Whoot! And this week has been an absolute blur, filled with lots of promotion and very little writing. I’d planned on doing Nano but that has since fallen to the wayside, not that I mind. Promotion is kind of fun. Stressful, but fun. I mean, you’ll only ever release you first novel once, right?
So what am I going to talk about today? I won’t leave you in suspense. Brinda suggested some ideas when she asked me if I would be interested in posting on her blog, and one of those ideas immediately stood out: what would you wish for if you had three wishes. Who doesn’t want three wishes? Of course, my thoughts kind of wandered initially and I came up with an outline for another story…. Thanks for that, Brinda! But I quickly got back on track…hours later. What would I wish for, you ask? If you’d asked me a year ago I would have said ‘to be published’ but this is a reality for me now (giggle, giggle) so it looks like I still have my three wishes.
Here are my current three (and I’m a firm believer in ‘go big or go broke’):
One: I would like to make the NY Times bestseller list. Honestly, if a writer didn’t choose this one as one their wishes I think I’d call bull@#$%. I enjoy writing and first and foremost I write for me, but in order for me to write full-time and to quit my day job I have to make enough money to be able to pay my mortgage and feed my kids.
Two: A vacation home in England. My parents and my relatives are all English and I haven’t been back since I was a child. Although I don’t remember it I’ve always felt a pull to return there. I would want an old cottage in the countryside with lots of character, closets, and bathrooms. And an awesome kitchen—updated.
Three: Tour the world! My first stop would be Egypt. The pyramids have fascinated me since I was little, and to walk through one would be an absolute dream!
So now you know what my three wishes are, what are yours? Leave a comment below and tell us about them! But since I still have your attention, I’ll leave you with my book blurb! Hopefully, it will interest you!
Thanks so much for reading this! And thanks again, Brinda, for having me.
Blood, She Read by Sara Hubbard
Keeping secrets from a psychic can be murder.
Petra Maras lives a charmed life, but only in the magical sense. Her absentee father is a criminal, her mother is emotionally dead, and everyone at her new school knows she comes from a family of witches. All she wants is to be normal, but that's impossible, given her family. And given that she's psychic. When the police request help with a murder investigation, Petra reluctantly agrees. Which isn't such a good idea since the prime suspect wants to date her, and she really wants to say yes. Her gut says he's innocent, but since she can't get a read on him, she can't know for sure. And when she discovers he's been keeping secrets, she wonders if maybe she's been following her heart instead of her head...
