Question:  I'm a huge fan of e-novella prequels and e-novellas in general.  What about you?

erin who said...

Thanks for a great post and congrats to Alexa on the newest release! Sounds fantastic :)

I've actually really become a fan of prequel novellas. It gives me a taste of the world and what to expect, which is great if it's a new to me author. Plus, the pricing is pretty good and for just a dollar or two, you get almost a 1/3 of a book! Before my kindle, I'd have never searched out novellas but now that they are becoming more available, I've been gobbling them up :)

Winners x 5 - November 18, 2012

Question:  Which cover or covers is/are more appealing to you? Do any of them make you think "fantasy" or "science fiction" or something else??

US Version:

Jen B. who said...

I like the US versions because there is more "movement" and "life" in them. My instinct tells me military, international, spy, action, and supernatural. I got the supernatural from the guy in the back that appears to be controlling lightening.


UK Version:

Tim who said...

Though I live in the US, I like the UK version of both books. Maybe it's the flames and the smoke and the chunks of earth, but the UK of Fortress Frontier makes me think fantasy more than any of them.

Winners x 14 - November 11, 2012

Question: Who is one of your favorite superheroes?

Jen B. who said...

I love Ironman. He is a superhero because he is smart (and stupid rich). But, and although he is technically classified as a superhero, I have to go with Dr. Who. I think he is just the ultimate superhero. He's smart, a little crazy, he's devoted and he always comes up with a way to do as little damage as possible.

Winners x 14 - November 11, 2012

Question:  Which character from novels, comics, movies, orTV shows do you find infuriating?

Texas Book Lover who said...

Bill from the True Blood show and books is one of the most infuriating characters I can think of. The books and shows have really digressed lately. I will tough out the last book but if Sookie ends up with Bill I will probably want to tear the book to pieces and for me that is totally sacrilegious.

I have to agree that Lori from The Walking Dead is really bad too. I'm kinda hoping the baby is a zombie and kills her during childbirth and I am normally not a mean or morbid person. Just love the show but am tired of her.

Question:  What’s your favorite kind of boot? What sort of boot do you want your heroes to wear?

Sheree who said...

I just want comfortable boots. I have fancier ones with stiletto heels but those hurt after a while and even my sturdier ones really aren't made for walking in (maybe they'd be okay for riding in).

As for heroes, anything they can walk in, I suppose. Nothing too fancy but functionality is a must - kind of how I like my men. ;)
