Hemingway, Cats, Sleuths, Blogs

Kensington set up a wonderful blog tour for me with Escape with Dollycas into a Good Book for the release of The Gun Also Rises. I always love the blogs and interviews and decided to share some of them here. Click on the name of the blog to read the entire post.

I visited Bab’s Book Bistro and talked about my visit to the Hemingway House in Key West, Florida last year. I talked about how the covers for my books are developed, my mad love for Hemingway’s typewriters and how serendipity converged the two.

Next up was an interview on Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book! One of the questions she asked are what are three things most people don’t know about me.

On A Wytch’s Book Review  Sarah is the one being interviewed. Can you guess what her two favorite movies are?

Sarah takes over on Storeybook Reviews!

On Ruff Drafts I talk about how the cats at the Hemingway House are like a sleuth in a mystery. Plus there are cute cat pictures that I took during  my visit.

It was fun to be interviewed on Lisa K’s Book Reviews. You have to scroll down a bit. One of the questions Lisa asked was if I found writing energizing or not.

On Readeropolis I was asked if I had any unique talents or hobbies.

Along with the blog tour I did a few other posts.

On Dru’s Book Musing Sarah talks about a day in her life.

I talk about the real bit of history I used in The Gun Also Rises on Jungle Red Writers.

E.B. Davis interviewed me on the Writers Who Kill blog.

Thanks to everyone who helped me with the release of The Gun Also Rises!

Readers: How would you answer the question what is something most people don’t know about you?

25 Thoughts

  1. That I am incredibly shy around people I don’t know why. After years of working with the public in my local city government, I have learned to hide it, but it’s still there under the surface.

  2. LOL, I have had to answer that one, too. So I’ll not do it again, but I’ll add something I omitted – I’ve been struck by lightening. Yes, it was a surprise to me too.

  3. That as a big man that in most situations I like the “kick the tires” on things however I make difficult decisions in about 30 seconds and simply move on.

      1. Being big people have certain assumptions like heavy things are still heavy. You soon realize that when you walk into a room you are noticed because of your size and not who you are. Back in the stone age when I was growing up there weren’t all of these color choices for clothes. They were all solids and you wore what fit not what you liked!

  4. That I was at the Berlin Wall the night that it fell! I was standing right behind Tom Brokaw as he gave the news brief! Very nice man, by the way. I also was almost arrested by the Russian police that night, but that is another story!

  5. I am a co-recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize (along with Al Gore and the other 1900 scientists who were authors on the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel Climate Change reports).

      1. I retired from the Canadian federal government 3 years ago, Sherry, so it doesn’t come up much in conversation! All I got for this honour was a gorgeous wooden plaque and the ability to add this accomplishment as a bullet point in my C.V.

  6. Most folks don’t know that hubby and I we have clowned with Emmett Kelly Jr. as well as performed for Governor Huckabee. Yep me in my little clown truck and hubby on an 18 inch motorcycle. We have gotten older and retired our red noses and big shoes plus we have moved so most of the locals have no idea. 🙂

  7. Great blog tour, Sherry. I used to say most people don’t know I’m a second-degree Black belt, but I’ve said it so frequently I think a lot of people know by now.

    But most people don’t know I’m a George Strait fan. 🙂

  8. I don’t know how to answer the question about something people don’t know about me. I’m so much of an open book. And since I review just about everything, there really isn’t much that isn’t already out there.

  9. Wow I dont have anything that can compare to the ones I read here. I feel kind of like the quiet child sitting in the corner saying oh yeah and I eat paste, lol. So on that note, I did use to love to eat glue and crayons, ;).

  10. I read the Jungle Red interview; that’s a great hook for the story. Joe Haldeman did a short SF novel, “The Hemingway Hoax,” about the missing manuscript.
