Even more so when you're just sitting there minding your own business, checking out the blog of one of your favorite YA authors, and then, out of no where, this new person dashes up, sticks her hand out and introduces herself. "Hi! Nice to meet you! I'm Emily McKay!"
Oh. Right. You're probably thinking. Tracy mentioned some friend of hers might be dropping by.
Yes, I'm that friend. And from now on, I'll be hanging out here a bit. So here's a quick introduction so you can get to know me.
(Btw, I think it's always awkward when people interview themselves, so think of this as more of a survey.)
What I write: I write romance novels for Harlequin Desire, YA rom-com (along with Tracy and Shellee) as Ivy Adams, and I just recently sold a paranormal YA to Berkley ... but more on that soon.
What I'm reading now: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I wanted to reread Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows before the last movie came out, but that just made me want to reread the other books. So I am.
Books I've read this summer (besides the Harry Potter books): Tracy's fabulous Tempest Rising, Amanda Hocking's Trylle trilogy, Susie Day's My Invisible Boyfriend (totally charming), Rebecca Stead's outstanding When You Reach Me, Grace Burrow's The Heir. Man, I've been reading a lot. I should really work more!
Movie I'm most looking forward to: Crazy, Stupid Love. Is it wrong that I'd go see that movie just for Ryan Gosling's pecs?
Favorite food: Lately, hamburgers. Bad for the environment, I know. But, hey, it's summer.
Favorite dessert: Anything lemony. Preferably in the form of cheesecake.
Favorite TV show: Big Bang Theory and Modern Family
What I'm listening to: INXS's "Beautiful Girl"
Now, since introductions shouldn't be one-sided, if you're a regular reader, tell me something about yourself. I'll pick one person to win a five dollar gift card from Amazon.
