You have been strangely quiet these days.
Where have you been?
What have you been reading?
Eye of the Soul
by Terri Rochenski.
Wow. What a coincidence.
Terri is our guest today.
I figured you’d take me more seriously if I actually read a book.
Well, it helps.
Did you like it?
It was weird.
I didn’t know there were people with pointed ears on this planet.
Maybe we should get Terri Rochenski to explain.
Let her in.
Please come in.
So, Terri, can you tell us in twenty words or less who you are and where your going with this writing stuff?
I am Mother and Wife Goddess of the universe
and I wish to make a million bucks with my writing hobby.
That was 21 words.
I think she has a problem counting. And Authors are supposed to be smart. Geesh.
Stop! Be nice!
I am being nice.
I didn’t disintegrate her, did I?
Okay ms. Rochenski. I’ve red you book, and I must say I find it deeply disturbing. Why would you write a book where they round up and entire race and enslave them?
Because it was inspired by events in my own life.
You’ve been stolen out of your house, chained and put on a boat,
and sent to prison for what you look like?
I was sort of speaking metaphorically.
So tell me, why do you think people should read this tragic tale?
Because I’m the Goddess of the universe
and have a lot to share.
Well, you may be the goddess of green-eyed pointy eared people, but you’re not MY goddess, Thumbelina. So, what’s with the chic on the cover?
That would be Hyla, the heroine of the Pool of Souls Series.
Does she have beautiful blue hair?
You watch it, toots.
Well, she must be hiding it because it’s NOT a beautiful blue.
She’s NOT hiding the color of her hair. It’s the pointy Native ears she’s uncomfortable revealing.
Okay, so what’s with those green eyes?
I don’t like green.
I like blue.
My hubs has blue. Love blue. Hyla’s along with all other Natives are green, a color no human on Derlund has.
Did you hear that? She’s married to a Martian. You have thusly redeemed yourself! So, tell me, does anything explode in this book?
Does a body count?
(It isn’t too gruesome. Promise.)
Oh! But gruesome is just lovely! I must say, this book intrigued me. I want to dip my foot in the pool and see what happens. Where is it, exactly?
I could tell you, but then I’d have to use my awesome goddess power to quiet you, and no one wants that.
Errghh. We’ll chat about that later.
For everyone else, why don’t you give a little low-down on what happens?
The body exploding? You’ll have to read the book to find out.
If you meant the book,
well then I’d have to say it’s about a young Native woman whose people are imprisoned for no apparent reason
and her journey to find out why and what she can do about it.
Oh Yes! Terri Rochenski gets the award for short and sweet! You don’t know how many authors come in here and read every word off the back of their book! Dreadfully boring. Your sexy Martian husband must be rubbing off on you. So, fess up. With a Martian in the house, you must be no stranger to things exploding.
I’ll keep this at a simple yes and plead the fifth on the why & how. Let’s just say it involved a shotgun and the side of our barn.
Have you ever painted your hair blue to match your wonderful husbands?
Pfffft. As IF.
Has he taken you up in his space ship?
Unfortunately those journeys took place within my dreams.
Oh. Crash landing, huh? No more space ship? He and I will have to hook up and chat. I’m stuck here, too.
So, Ms. Rochenski (Odd last name for an alien by the way) I believe you have a rafflecopter-thingy for our readers, right? What’s that all about?
And where may we purchase your lovely (despite green) book?
Please, please, tell us where!
