Author Penelope King

 I'm so excited to have my friend Penelope King with us today. Penelope and I met when I was submitting my manuscript to agents a few years ago. We became beta readers for each other and have become friends through our writing. She is awesome, and her writing is AMAZING! I'm so glad I got to read her manuscripts because it's not something I would normally pick up.  Penelope has a way of making you fall in love with her characters and if I had to choose, I'd be Team Bones all the way! 

Here's a quick interview with Penelope:

 1. Chocolate or vanilla? Vanilla
  2. Night owl or early bird? Total vampire
   3. Outline or fly by the seat of your pants? A little of both… I have some ideas then pretty much wing it.
 4. Traditional or self publish? Indie, baby!
  5. Hand write or type? Type. Even I can’t read my own chicken scratch
   6. Milky way or Snickers? Snickers
 7. Chinese food or Mexican? Oooh, depends on my mood but I have to go with Mexican.
 8. Wine or coffee? Both!!!
 9. Dogs or cats? Cats
10. Amazon or In-store purchases? Sadly, mostly Amazon. I am trying to buy more from small indie bookstores though. Problem is they aren’t open at 1am when I want to shop!
 11. Cook in or out to dinner? I love to cook, but I love to go out on occasion…so both J
  12. Starbucks or Tim Hortons? Starbucks
13. Twilight or Hunger Games? HARRY POTTER!!!!
 14. Introvert or Extrovert? Depends…but mostly an introvert.
  15. Indoors or outdoors? Outdoors
 16. Music or silence? Depends…they both have a time and purpose. For writing I need total silence, but for editing and brainstorming I need some tunes.
   17. Sedan or Minivan?  Sedan
  18. Endless edits and revisions or One time through...perfection? I edit about 3-5 times, but definitely not endless revisions and DEFINITELY not first time perfect.
  19. Camping or Hotel? Hotel all the way. Preferably one with fabulous room service and a spa J
 20. Organized or disorganized? Strangely enough I am compulsively organized. Doesn’t seem to help me get things done any faster, though J
