1. On a scale of 1 (worst) to 10 (best), how did the book turn out? Did anything defy your expectations?
Prehaps this isn't the best time for me to be doing this I still haven't caught up on sleep. Ummm, maybe a 5 and that is fairly optimistic.
2.Comparative title time: what published books, movies, or TV shows are like your book? (Ex: Inkheart meets X-Men.)
This is hard, it's very fairy tale. I paid homage to 'Maleficent' and that is all I can think of.
3.Do you enjoy working with deadlines and pressure (aka NaNoWriMo)? Or do you prefer to write-as-you’re-inspired?
This book was for the Roogle Wood Press contest, so the deadline was always in my mind, it definitely makes me write faster, but I'm not sure I like it.
4. How do you go about editing? Give us an insight into your editing process.
Read it out loud till I hate it, eat, cry and repeat.
5. What aspect of your story needs the most work?
Pacing, plotting, all if it?
6.What aspect of your story did you love the most?
My characters I always love my characters. Little devils.
7. Give us a brief run down on your main characters and how you think they turned out. Do you think they’ll need changes in edits?
Well there is Rachel, the fourteen year old cancer patient, and Rachel her fantasy counterpart who is a cursed Princess. Then there is Aden a mixed blood who is half ogre and her supposed friend.Throw in a temperamental Goblin King, an alcoholic father, and a not so devious fairy. Who sees his curses as blessings. They probably all could use some polishing, but I will be to lazy to change anything.
8. What are your plans for this novel once you finish editing? More edits? Finding beta readers? Querying? Self-publishing? Hiding it in a dark hole forever?
I am going to send it in to the judges, and if I win, it would be published in 'The Five Magic Spindles' collection. If I don't win, I think I would publish it as an e book.

"If you drop me-"
"You'll have me executed, " He guessed, his grin fixed and wicked.
"Of course, something painful and slow. A simple beheading would be far too good for you." I mused, standing taller, in order to meet his eyes.
"Drawn and quartered," He suggested.
"Roasted on a spit, I've heard fried ogre is a delicacy."
"Rumors of course our skin is far too tough, and our skulls to thick." He said a glint in his dark eyes.
I held out my hand, "Shall we."
10.What are your writing goals and plans for 2016?
I would like to finish the first draft of Bleeding Roses, my untitled Zombie story, and The Unhappening. I also need to edit and rewrite two of my finished books.
