Thx for stopping by... my answers are in ( )

If you ever… I mean, when you get published—who will be the first or most important person you give the first copy to? (That’s a hard one, probably my dad, since my wife will have read it before it goes to the publisher.)

What is your preference… past or present tense? In reading or writing. (past tense for me in both, but I can handle it in what I read if the story works.)

Read any good books lately? (Stephen King’s Cell... the hunger games 1 through 2, can't remeber her name and too lazy to get up and check.)


  1. I have no idea.

    I HATE books written in present tense. They drive me batty.

    I haven't read a new book in a while, but I've been rereading a lot of my favorites.

  2. 1) Keep a copy and one to my mother.

    2) I like both, past and present tense.

    3) Most recently, I've been catching up on my comic books. The last comic book (still reading it) is "Betty & Veronica Double Digest."

    Thanks, I had fun reading your post! :)

  3. 1. Granparents first copy and second copy goes to my daughter.

    2. I don't think tense matters to much to me. I do like first person though.

    3. I've been doing a lot of buying and very little reading, as I've been working on my writing or critiquing whole books or pieces for friends or blog friends. :)

    Thanks for asking, Jeff......

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I would give the first copy to my brother. He doesn't read my books cover to cover, but he does praise me excessively. Who wouldn't like that?

    I prefer to write in the past tense.

    I'm currently reading Star Island by Carl Hiaasen. Great writer with twists of humor.

  5. I'd give a copy to Becca Puglisi. She's been my crit partner since forever and I just couldn't live without her knowledge and talent!
