I've been Fifi-ed! Sure Mao, Madonna and Mickael Jackson have been immortalized by Andy Warhold, but they haven't been Fifi-ed.
Fifi Flowers, the artist and bloger is posting an interview of yours truly and is hosting a giveaway of Hidden in Paris on her new book blog Reading is Fashionable. The 3 winners of a signed paperback of Hidden in Paris will also receive a Hidden in Paris original bookmark painted by Fifi. Seriously glamorous.
Leave your comment on Reading and Fashionable for a very good chance of winning. Last time I hosted a giveaway on goodreads there were 2000 requests, but this will be a much more intimate affair. (If you already have a copy you can keep the signed one for yourself or give it to a friend.)
This is the bookmark that make me feel that Madonna has nothing on me.
Here is an exerpt of the interview: .
"When and why did you begin writing?
When did I not write? If back in the days they had the ultrasound technology they have now they would have seen me tracing letters on the walls of my mother’s uterus. Okay that sounded horrible. I have always written. I don’t sing, don’t dance, don’t paint and I’m a terrible blusher, so writing ends up being the only form of self-expression that I’m truly comfortable with.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
For years my husband introduced me as ‘his wife the writer’ and I would blush and protest that I could not possibly be a writer because no one had deemed to publish my work. If you are what you do, then I have always been a writer, but giving myself that title was my challenge, my dream and the source of a lot of angst. I thought writing a blog might make me a writer, but it only made me a blogger (no offense, bloggers rock!) I hoped that writing a book might, but that didn’t quite do the trick for me. It really wasn’t until people purchased Hidden in Paris and began sending me emails telling me how the novel entertained them or touched them (I was praying for both) that I did consider myself a writer. I’ve been a writer ever since…. It’s been three months only, so I still could chicken out!"
