Author Ladybug is taking her latest book Life in Ann’s World, on tour — a Virtual Book Tour with Outskirts Press. This will allow Ladybug to take her book into the far corners of the globe, all from the comfort of her own home! Keep an eye out for Ladybug’s book as she will be featured on several blogs over the weeks and months ahead!
Luckily for us, Ladybug was kind enough to answer a few questions as the tour was getting started so that we can give you a sneak peek into the mind of the creator of Life in Ann’s World.
OP: Tell us a little bit about Life in Ann’s World. What is it about?
Ladybug: The story is in the view from a 12-year-old girl’s perspective. At the beginning of the book she contemplates about her life up to her present.
OP: Why did you decide to write this story?
Ladybug: I got tired of almost every show you see these days or read about is another branch of law enforcement. There are other stories out there other than law enforcement. Don’t get me wrong some of the shows and stories you read are great, but I prefer a break from them. I can go in my living room right now and turn on the tv and there will only be some type of law show but, in the end, I wanted to create a story that the whole family could enjoy, I hope they do!
OP: How did you get your book published?
Ladybug: Outskirts press is a self-publishing company. I submitted my book for review, and they agreed to publish it. After paying a lot for having it published, it finally became published in May of 2018.
OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?
Ladybug: It is my hope that all walks of life will enjoy my book. My intentions were to send people in a different reality, even if it is for a little while.
OP: What is special about your book?
Ladybug: Other than I wrote it? It is not a law story, it captures the imagination of the people reading it. I love a story where all the characters get along and work together to help with an imminent crisis.
OP: What differentiates it from other books in the same category?
Ladybug: Towards the end of the story Ann’s friends are beginning to go their own separate ways. These things happen in real life as when young children become young adults and after high school these young adults will pursue college, work, family or all three. It is a time in their lives when major changes take place in their lives and Ann is no different. Ann’s changes are a little more obvious than real peoples’ lives, but I think everyone can relate to her and the fast pace of her life. Ann is always wanting her life to slow down but, for her it does not.
OP: Have you published any other books?
Ladybug: No, not yet.
OP: Do you plan to publish more?
OP: Thanks for your time, Ladybug! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
