TCWT: "Which fictional world would you most like to be a part of, and what role do you think you would fulfill within it?"
ZH: I would probably want to be at Hogwarts and friends with Harry Potter (even though he's kind of like Typhoid Mary) and would be in Dumbledore's Army. It's dangerous, but I'd be fighting for a good cause and I'd have magic.
My fellow teen author, Emily Rachelle, is hosting a blog party through December 12-January 15. A bunch of our author friends are contributing, and I agreed to do an interview. She posted it on her blog, but I'm also going to have it below.
Tell us a little about yourself first.
My name is Zara Hoffman. I’m sixteen going on seventeen, a junior in high school, and self-published by debut novel on November 13, 2013. It’s a fantasy romance novel, and the first in The Belgrave Legacy Trilogy.
I would like to give a BIG shoutout and thanks to my fellow author friend, Emily Rachelle, who posted about OneWord365, an amazing initiative that inspires people all over the world, 365 days a year.
When I heard about this, I was so intrigued. I read OneWord365's post about choosing a word, but was still baffled by what word I could possibly want. Now, I have my word (but it's a secret that won't be revealed until New Year's Day).
Starting today, I will be brainstorming creative ways to show and embody my word for the upcoming year. Stay tuned for more information on that!
As some of you know, I fractured a bone in my foot yesterday, the eve of my being a published author for a whole MONTH! See the tweet below announcing the unfortunate event, and attempting to use pity to get more purchases (it worked for at least one person, because I checked).
The GOOD news is that while the whole crutches, and now BOOT (new addition as of today), is a pain in—well, everywhere (bad foot, good leg, and arms)—to deal with on a constant basis, I can use this experience in one of my upcoming books (won't tell which one, because it would be too big a spoiler).
AND, in that one month of being published, I've made 30 sales on my debut novel and $74.27 in royalties. Want to make me happy? Buy a copy now. Already have one? Why not get a copy for a friend?
Some of my self-published author friends and I decided to contribute to a massive giveaway for the holiday season, and the time has finally come to share it with the world! Enter below, and have fun.
I'm a self-published author (because being a college student wasn't hard enough!) and spend most of my time doing homework. I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
