Uncensored Interview with Author Ruthi Kight (18+ Older)

RUTHI KIGHT UNCENSORED QUESTIONS:


L: Do you believe size matters? The thicker the better or can smaller be just as riveting? (I meant the size of the book!)


R: That’s a
hard question to answer *snickers*. I guess it would depend. If it’s satisfying, smaller can be a good thing. But if the magic’s just not there, having it drag on even longer would be terrible. So, I’d have to say it really does depend.



L: Do you like it slow? Or do you like a fast? (When a story is straight to the point or when it builds.) 
 
R:Hmmm….personally, when it comes to what I’m reading, I like it hard and fast. Give me the meat and taters of the story, don’t make me sit here scratching my head for hours. But when I write, it’s more fun to be slow and steady. *Note to others* Do me hard and fast please! J (Damn, I feel so dirty now!)



L: Is harder better? Or does it come easily for you? When you write a book that is.

R: Harder makes it longer for me to adjust. If I know the content fully, and I know where the story is going, it makes it easier. But, like with a paranormal that I’m working on, it’s soooo hard! I’ve never written in that genre, so it’s harder for me to adjust to the sheer size of the world.



L: So did you always know you’d be a cradle robber? You know when you started writing YA?
R: LOL! Oh man! You sure know how to make me blush! I love being a cradle robber! The young adult genre is where my heart has always been. When I was in school, I was always fascinated by how the mind of a teenager worked. So I studied them closely. I felt that I could embody their thoughts and feelings better than I could adults. But now that I’ve done some adult writing…I have to say, I’m loving it too!



L: So how old were you when you, well you know. When you decided to be a writer?

R: I was young. Real young. I’ve always kept a journal, since I was a kid. At one time, I seriously wanted to be a rock star. That fell through, obviously. But after my mother passed, I decided that it was time to put my big girl panties on and follow my passion for writing. I made a New Year’s resolution this year to finish a book…I’ve now finished three, so I think I kept it…for once!



L: When did you receive that first big, OH MY GOD? After your first review or when you finished writing?

R:The night I finished Knotted Roots, I had that OH MY GOD moment! LOL I literally closed that sucker out and made a HUGE drink (mainly liquor!) and celebrated with my bestie. We got sloshed. But I think the BEST moment was my first bad review. I know, weird, right? It was a grounding moment. Everyone should frame their first bad review…just saying! :)



L: Did it hurt the first time? How did you feel when you received a bad review?

R: Hmmm! I jumped the gun, didn’t I? Surprisingly, it didn’t hurt! I kinda like pain, anyway! LOL Bad reviews are a chance for us to grow, to learn. Without them, imagine what we would become?? Egotistical writers who know everything. The day I think I know everything, will be the day I need to stop writing ‘cause it’s a lost cause. But that’s just my opinion. :)


L: Would you perform orally? If you were given the chance to do a book reading?

R: I’ve never been a fan of performing orally. I suck (lol) at public speaking. I literally get cold chills and…sometimes…throw up! Ewww! I know! I don’t like the spotlight, at all. I’d rather just sit back and chill, blend in! Which makes me really question my sanity for joining this career! LOL


L: Where is your favorite place to do it? Write in bed or on your desk?

R: Neither. I’d rather do it on the couch. Where I’m able to mingle with others while I do it. My bed makes me sleepy, so that’s a mood killer. The desk is so…uncomfortable. So yeah, it’s the couch for me!



L: Who helps in getting your juices flowing? The Music, Pictures of Celebrities, or something else?

R: Music. It’s my livelihood, seriously. I have sooo many different playlists, and each one goes with a different mood. When I need a sappy scene, I use music to get me mellow and languid. When I need suspense, I throw on some rock and get pumped I have always loved music. It’s a part of my soul. People pick on me for the music I listen to, but I always tell them: Listen to the words, feel what the artist is trying to tell you. You’ll understand, then, why I love the song. Then they look at me like I’m a nut job and walk away. *Shrugs* I tried :)

Book Blast Benjamin McTish and the Door through the Grandfather Tree


Book Info-

Title- Benjamin McTish and the Door Through the Grandfather Tree

Series- Book  #1
By- June M. Pace
Genre-  YA/Fantasy


Blurb-
It’s Harry Potter meets the Celestine Prophecy in this magical and thrilling ride! The McTish Series is an explosive adventure through a dimensional Gateway into another world, a world of beauty and magic, Coranim...a land of insight, thought and possibilities, that sits beneath the enchanted Gilley Forest.


There is local legend in the small town of Grandlochcheshire that has been passed down for a 100 years about the mysterious disappearance of the Chickering family, that trails on the coat tails of the equally shocking  abduction of the Skeffington Union Rails heirs, Connor and Shelbe. The circumstances that follow this notorious tale enter into the modern world of Benjamin and his two best mates.  


One day Benjamin watches from behind the Rhododendron as a mysterious little woman steps out of a taxi in front of the cream colored house with the forest green trim next door and in one synchronistic moment their eyes lock and a series of visual snippets of unfamiliar events unfold in his mind’s vision. His razor sharp sixth sense allows him the freedom to explore the extrasensory messages coming at him in a frenzied speed, like a derailed freight train.
And when Benjamin finds a peculiar old relic of a key in his grandmother’s garden shed, he could never know his world was about to change forever.


Annabel and Mathilda, two sisters who have moved to Grandlochcheshire from America, have become more than mere friends to Benjamin, they have all become the three Muskydeers (Mathilda’s mispronounced version of Musketeers, which was a huge laugh and of course it stuck), as they are plunged head first into this curious journey.  


In the Gilley Forest they discover that the path they have chosen is inundated with many obstacles as well as intrigue.  Alliances are made with the Forest clan of Gnomes known as the Set, and with the aid of the Vila sisters, Sethina and Morel, as well as some surprising and unexpected allegiances, the three friends take on the test that is the Grandfather Tree.  They must stay on the pre ordained Path of prophecy, portended by the ancient seer Pajah Set, whose ancestry comes from the home of the oldest living beings on the planet, the Elves of the Darmon    However, this is no easy task for the Muskydeers as they have the foulest of sorcery hunting their every move, the powerful dark beauty known to all as Tar Vigorn.


This ruthless Queen is not without humor however, and loves a good game of cat and mouse, as long as she’s the cat. With her biting sense of sarcasm and calculated taunting, she knows just how to unnerve the young Benjamin. Her phantom army known as the Blunt are searching for a way into the Grand Tree and will stop at nothing to infiltrate the pristine world beneath his giant roots.


Once in Coranim the children make the acquaintance of the greatest Medicine Elder alive, Esmerelda Fet.  A most powerful Light Sorceress with a brazen in your face attitude and a thick Irish brogue, who guides the trio on their Path of destiny.  “All tings be possible ya wee chil’ren, if’en ya put yer mind to it!  Thar be nothin ya can’t accomplish.  Ya just need ta be placin all yer carage inta tha middle of yer core whar yer Spirit shines...an ya can do anythin! Ha!”


Filled with many wonders, and home to the Fet clan of Gnomes, Coranim is a magical world of art, sound, thought, invention and discovery....and home to the World Library of Identity, with none other than Dunston Tibbitts at the helm.  
Every being on the planet has a book dedicated to the entirety of their lives.  Dunston reports to Benjamin, “according to what I see here now, this very minute, whatever it is that you are seeking will show itself today and change your Path immediately.  It will put you into a whole new dynamic as they say.”


What could alter the overpowering trajectory Benjamin has followed to Coranim?  How will it change his life?
Find out as our three heroes delve into the mystic, as well as their own inner character, as you watch from the edge of your seat.


Book Two, Benjamin Mctish and the Wizards of Coranim, coming 2013
