Author Interview at Lift You Up Blog

Heart of the Raven banner originalJames Oh had some awesome questions, but this was my favorite:

So far what is your worst criticism/attacks, and how have you overcome it?

It was my first bad review. It was on a blog written by a Mrs. Chuckles, or something like that, who tore the first book in the series to shreds. I was upset and told my husband that I needed a chocolate muffin, because only chocolate could soothe my injured soul. We went to the grocery store, but they were completely out of chocolate muffins. No big deal, so we went to wal-mart who, oddly, had no chocolate muffins. Next we tried a gas station, but again, no chocolate muffins. After stopping at every one in town (it was now the principle of the matter! It was a quest, by god, and I *would* succeed!) we finally found one chocolate muffin at Kum ‘N Go. We bought it and headed home. I got in the door and had just settled in to get back to pouting when my mother called (she lives next door), so I left my muffin sitting on the coffee table, still in it’s plastic wrapper. When I came back, the wrapper was there and the muffin was gone. Furious, I yelled at my husband, “I can’t believe you ate it!” He denied it, and it was then that I noticed that the paper muffin cup was also missing. And the dog was smiling. Since then the dog has become a chocolate fiend (he begs for it whenever I have any) and I’ve given up pouting because, in the end, the dog just eats the muffin anyway, so there’s no point. Better to move on and put it behind you.

  1. how dare anyone give you a bad review Joleene your a genius! I have chocolate muffins for you when ever you want them!

  2. I’m told chocolate is bad for dogs… we’ve got a stash of choc cupcakes in the fridge – will that do?

  3. It sounds to me as though Mrs. Chuckles Is in need of chocolate – maybe she would be a nicer person if she ate a muffin or two! Thanks for making me smile.

  4. You have a store in your town called “Kum ‘N Go?” I was right THERE with you, Jo. I swear! I really was!!!
