Night of the Living Book Blast!

30+ Authors, 50+ Books...Sept. 24th, at FreeBookBlast.com

30+ Authors, 50+ Books… Oct. 24th, at FreeBookBlast.com 

Although the name is spooky, there’s going to be something for everyone. On Saturday, October 24th, #SupportIndieAuthors (A Goodreads group) will have dozens of authors offering scores of free books!

As usual, in the week leading up to the event, we’d like to tell you something about our participants, so we’ve devised this holiday themed mini-interview. Since there are so gosh darned many of us, we’re going to do things a little differently this time around. Instead of one very long list of authors, several bloggers will each post a handful of interviews.

Below you will find not only talented authors I am hosting, but links to all of the other blogs, so make sure to click though and meet all of our authors!

And of course, all our books will be listed on the official Book Blast website.

So don’t forget to mark your calendars for Saturday, October 24th, and spread the word about this exciting trick-free treat!

What is your name?
John Saomes… and the ‘a’ is silent when pronouncing my surname.

What book are you offering?
The Days of Dinkum Dodger (Volume 1)
– a collection of Australian bush poetry and true blue Aussie yarns. The larrikin antics of Dinkum Dodger, based on actual events, are bound to give you a good laugh. Towards the end of the book my poems are more serious and thought provoking and express some of my thoughts on freedom of expression and government controls.

Who will enjoy the book you are offering, spooky fiends or fraidy cats?
This Aussie bush poetry is not for the faint hearted. Be prepared to have a really good laugh and then have some of your ideas challenged. Fraidy cats tow the line, whilst Dinkum Dodger, a bit of a rabble-rouser and prankster, encourages you to speak out and have your say… should fit right in with the ‘trick or treat’ theme we have happening here.

Tell us about your favorite, worst, most unique, or most embarrassing Halloween costume. Got a picture you can share with us?
Until 20 years ago, Australia did not really celebrate Halloween. In recent times it seems we have adopted this American custom. However, I don’t need to dress up… my best smile is scary enough. (As you can see from the photo of me as Dinkum Dodger on his soapbox… telling it like it is!)

Life is like bag of Halloween candy. Which seasonal treat are you?
My wife says I’m a marshmallow… tough on the outside and mushy and soft on the inside… and extremely sweet… ha ha!

Where can readers find out more about you?
My website and blog is packed full of contentious material and is the best place to learn more about me. I’m now also on facebook and twitter – please see links below.

What is your name?
Sarah Sunday

What is the name and genre of the book you are offering?
How to Stop Wildfire, an offbeat space opera/epic fantasy hybrid.

Who will enjoy the book you are offering, spooky fiends or fraidy cats?
Fraidy cats, probably. How to Stop Wildfire is more humorous than terrifying.

Tell us about your favorite, worst, most unique, or most embarrassing Halloween costume. Got a picture you can share with us?
There was this one Halloween in elementary school when I dressed up as Death at a funeral. I wore all black and put on a top hat. It was pretty pathetic.

Life is like a bag of Halloween candy. Which seasonal treat are you?
Caramel Apples.
