Happy Wednesday everyone! Today’s interview is with Tracy Jorgensen, my AgentQuery Connect BFF. She is an amazing person and writer. Please check out her crazy blog and see her latest antics!
1) What genre(s) do you write? And why?
Fantasy; for a few age groups (adult, YA, MG, etc.) Why? I
suppose it is the world building aspect that is fun, combined with the
more openness for my “what if” scenarios. What if you could live your
life over again? That idea led to THE GIRL WITH BROWN EYES. You can
still do it somewhat with other genres, but in fantasy its more
anything goes. So long as you stick to your own rules of course. I
2) Tell us about your latest project. This is your chance to crow about being published, agented, or winning a contest.
I’m querying for THE GIRL WITH BROWN EYES at the moment. But if
we’re supposed to be bragging then can I promote my blog? BELIEF
SUSPENDERS. It’s like Mythbusters for Writers. I do videos of scenes
from books, and test them out to see what would REALLY happen. Again
it goes back to my love of what ifs. What if I really did smash a
bottle on the bar? What if i jumped out of the car while it was
moving? I’m a curious kind of girl.
3) Other than writing, how do you like to spend your time?
There is other time? Just kidding. I like to bake fattening and
delicious things. Also go dirt bike riding and jet skiing as much as
possible. I’ll play me some video games (and lose my grammar skills)
if the weather isn’t up for me to go out to play.
4) Do you have any tattoo’s, if so where? If not, do you want any?
Nope and nope. I’m good.
5) What is the last book you read? Did you like it?
The Left Hand of Darkness, and I did like it. It was totally one
of those books you have to rip yourself out of and re-establish
yourself in the real world. Love that.
6) What is your advice to those who want to be authors? (I know, it’s a crummy one, but needs to be asked)
Watch the silly video on youtube “So you want to write a novel.”
Then learn why what he is saying is sooo bad. Learn how not to look
like a dork and then you’ll be set for when your luck meets your work.
7) Tell us one thing no one knows about you
Does that include myself? How can I tell you if even I don’t know
it? Aaah. Okay, I don’t know if this (or if its even true) but I’m
allergic to dolphin meat, and I’ve been chosen by the Aussian
Electorate to represent our planet next spring at the Aussian Imperial
Annual Ball. I probably won’t RSVP since I don’t know about it yet.
