AAD Spotlight & Contest: Seressia Glass

Author Spotlight Long

seressiaI knew from a young age that I wanted to be a writer. It started with reading. I loved losing myself in words more than anything. Comics, cereal boxes, instructions–it didn’t matter. If there were words on the page, I read them.

Growing up, the library was my sanctuary and books my refuge. I knew words had power–they’d been used against me often enough by that time. When I felt as if I didn’t belong to my family or in my own skin, the fantastical worlds created by writers welcomed me, fired my imagination, diverted my attention, gave me dreams and hope and a way out.

AAD Spotlight & Contest: MaryJanice Davidson

Author Spotlight Long

As we countdown the days until AAD 2013 starts (14 days!!), today we welcome the Master of Ceremonies, MaryJanice Davidson, to Romancing the Book.  Before we start our interview, here’s a little more about MaryJanice.

MaryJanice Davidson invented a) her children, and b) the vampire chick lit genre.  Also the Internet.  She is kind to (some) children and (occasional) small animals, and enjoyes referring to herself in the third person.  Appearing several times a year on the best-seller list, as well as occasional Federal “person of interest” sheets, she takes time from the living hell that is being paid to do what she loves best to seek out the nearest Cinnabon franchise.

Author Spotlight Long

Thanks so much to Jen and Romancing the Book for having me as a guest today!

If you’ve read any of my tweets, you probably know that I’m a lover of all things furry, feathered, or even scaly. You also might know that I live in a small Idaho town. Like, population of 5,000 people small. And while I’m occasionally bummed at the lack of Barnes & Noble, Target, or Starbucks, there’s plenty here to love.
