ZOË MARRIOTT WEEK: Day #1

Wow that title took some effort. I spent ten minutes trying to come up with some other way of putting it and then another ten convincing myself that it was OK to name a blog post after myself. Which, considering this whole blog is named after me, makes no sense whatsoever. I don't even know.

Anyway - hello everyone! Hope you managed to get through the weekend with the minimum of suffering and trauma. Today is the first day of...you know... ME Week over on The Book Memoirs and they're kicking off with an in depth look at the production of the Shadows on the Moon book trailer, and the chance to enter questions for a Q & A which I'll be doing at the end of the week.

This Q & A is different from the Reader Question posts that I normally do because you get to ask me ANYTHING - my favourite colour, my opinion on Harry Potter, my solutions to the debt crisis, the name of the first boy ever kissed: WHATEVER YOU WANT! And I will do my best to answer.

So head over there now.

Before I go, I feel that I need to acknowledge the fannish devotion of Daughter of the Flames reader Kayla, who got in touch with me on Twitter to tell me that she loved the book so much, she had made art featuring the main characters Sorin and Zira. And here it is:


So happy! *Wipes away tear*

Oh! And just when you thought I was finished, it turns out I'm not. Check out Sarah Rees Brennan and Holly Black's takes on the Mary-Sue issue. They each have very different and yet equally interesting and wonderful things to say.

More tomorrow!

1. Those little dolls are adorable.

R.J.:

GAH, it is on the site. SQUEE. I'm so happy you like it!

Zoë Marriott said...

Kayla: Squee! I am so happy you MADE it! Fanart is the bestest!

Hey Zoe your blog is on fire lately. Your posts on the craft of writing are always solid and your post about the overuse of the Mary-Sue label was top notch. I've been enjoying Zoe-trope so much I decided to give it a blog award, which you can pick up here if you like http://wp.me/psAeI-1ri Thanks a bunch for all the quality posts.

Zoë Marriott said...

Amy: Thank you very much - I'm honoured to be included in the award winners! I have a policy that I don't post awards on the blog because I already have waaaay too much stuff going on in both sidebars anyway, but I really appreciate it!

Isabel said...

Zoë: I really enjoyed your post at The Book Memoirs! You're right, the trailer was the best I've ever seen for any book! Completely gorgeous!! :D

Unfortunately, you have to have a blog to submit a question for Friday, and since I'm not allowed to have one I can't... but anyway, I'm still excited to see your responses to everyone else's questions!

And those dolls or GORRRGEOUS. Thanks, Kayla, for making them!! :):)

Isabel: You don't have to have a blog address - you just need to put something in the box! Write 'N/A' or 'No Blog' and you can go ahead :)

Isabel: Sorry for the confusion about that one! You absolutely don't have to have a blog, you can just do as Zo says! :) Come on over and join in! - Elle

Isabel said...

Yay! Thanks for clearing that up. I'll go do that now! :D
