Isn’t that a good title for a book? I’d read it if it existed.
I saw Heather Brewer at a book signing event hosted by the local library district last night. She was promoting First Kill, the first in The Slayer Chronicles (a companion series to The Vladimir Tod Chronicles). That woman is awesome. She spoke for a little while on growing up, surviving bullies, and how she became a writer. Then she switched to Q&A. Some of the more interesting questions were (and I’m paraphrasing most of this)
Q: If you could do a crossover book with any author, whom would you choose?
A: Stephen King.
Q: What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever read?
A: No book has ever really scared me, but the one that came closest to giving me chills is Stephen King’s It. Clowns are evil.
Q: If you could be any fictional character from any book ever written, who would you be?
A: Voldemort. I just love him. [As a character, I’m assuming, not as a person.]
There were books for sale by a local, independent bookstore. One of them was a collection called Dear Bully. 70 authors contributed stories about being bullied, not standing up when someone else was bullied, or regrets over times when they were bullies. Heather Brewer was one of the contributors, and I bought a copy for BratzBasher. “Auntie Heather” autographed her story with “BratzBasher – Be a positive ripple in the pond of life.”
If you haven’t read Vladimir Tod, I highly recommend it. There’s a link to Auntie Heather’s website off to the side there. Who knows? You may wind up becoming another member of the minion horde.
