Make It Count by Tamar Sloan (young adult, paranormal, romance, friendship, family)

5* Wow. This is a book I had started months ago and set aside after the first few pages. I’m really glad a picked it back up. Casey’s gift/curse or as she and her friend, Em, call it the “gurft” is just that. Casey struggles to find a way to cope with the gurft when she meets the boy of her dreams. The problem is that his number is twenty-one. Can she change it? Should she? As she gets closer to him she does everything she can to save him and shares her wisdom, insights, and lessons she learns along the way through her Blog (which is a really creative way to share what is going on in her head). I really loved how the author included a brief four year fast forward to how Casey is doing in the near future.  If you like this book, I would also suggest “When” by Victoria Laurie.

Interview with, Bailey Ordiway, Author

Share

Welcome to my interview with, Bailey Ordiway, author of American Holdovers, Blackout, and Entertainment 100.

Hello, Bailey!

I’m glad you’re here! First some fun trivia.

Do you have a favorite book or film?

My all time favorite book is Looking For Alaska by John Green. My favorite film is Silver Linings Playbook, though it is a good book as well!

When you walk into a bookstore, where do you head to first?

First I look to see if I’m in the store at all. If I am, I sign a couple copies. Then, I go to the young adult section because I will always have a soft spot for that genre.

Do you have a job other than being an author? If so, what is it?

Yes! I actually own a small vape shop. I do most of my writing on the couch there while waiting for customers.

What do you listen to when you write?

I usually listen to a mix of classical and electronic. No words and relaxing in different ways.

What genre do you consider your book(s)?

I actually try to expand out into multiple genres so I don’t get stuck in a niche, but they all kind of remain around Young Adult.

What advice do you have for authors looking to find and connect with a wider base of fans?

Start a blog! I have my entertainment blog that has become just as important to me as my books. On top of that, it keeps you busy when you have writer’s block.

What has been your favorite part of being an author?

Probably getting to tell people I’m an author! It never gets old, really.

Are you a plotter, a planner, or do you prefer to dive right in?

I am a plotter for sure. I have a problem focusing and if I don’t write out a very thorough outline then I will ramble and get sidetracked.
