I am honored to announce my first ever author interview (via email) with Diana Leszczynski, author of Fern Verdant and the Silver Rose. This amazing, unique book somehow got past me when it was published in November of 2008 and I am so thrilled that Diana sent me an email asking me if I would like to read and possibly review her book last month. Once I started reading, I couldn't put the book down. I became an instant fan and I want to share my enthusiasm and inspire as many people as possible to read this wonderful book, for selfish reasons, mostly - I want there to be a whole series of books about Fern!
Because I feel so strongly about this book, I decided to do my first ever author interview in the hopes of piquing interest even further. Being my first ever author interview, what follows is basically a giddy fan who has been given the chance for a behind-the-scenes peek into her new favorite book. I hope you find it even half as interesting as I did. I am posting the interview after my review of the book because you really need to know about Fern and her adventures to get the most out of the interview.
Also, I want to say a HUGE HUGE "THANK YOU!" to Jill Tullo over at The Well Read Child for posting my interview and review as well. The Well Read Child has a much bigger readership than my little blog and I want as many people to know about this superb book as possible. Jill also posted my review of Ellen Potter's magnificent new book, SLOB on her site as well.
I hope both these book are well and widely read!
