SKYPE INTERVIEW & SIGNED PRINTS GIVEAWAYS with ABBI GLINES - AUSTRALIAN BOOK SIGNING TOUR - SIMON & SCHUSTER - VLOG

Today I had the pleasure of skyping with ABBI GLINES author of many New Adult Contemporary's and her YA Paranormal Romance series. I want to thank the lovely Anabel for making that possible from Simon & Schuster Australia.

I was a tad nervous , and it shows, but, challenge accepted! 

Here is my vlog of the interview.

I want to thank Abbi for taking the time out of her busy schedule to chat to me. She is really lovely. To be truthful I was sweating like I had been running a marathon at my end, I was that nervous. But I got there in the end. 

Abbi was kind enough to sign some prints of her covers I got printed off at Big W which I had prior organized with her. 

I want to give a big shout out to the lovely Rachel from The Rest Is Still Unwritten who got a couple of my books signed and made the giveaways possible for y'all. I am in my little forest and could not get to Sydney or Melbourne to the signings , so Rachel was kind enough to get my books and prints to Abbi for me.


 THANK YOU RACHEL!! xxxx


ABBI & RACHEL 


So sit back and have a watch and you will find out some interesting things.

  3. Fantastic interview Mich! Man, Abbi was/is so nice! You guys had a great flow and you didn't seem that nervous. I loved that Abbi came with her family, though it's too bad she didn't like Vegemite. Oh and fyi....I LOVE it with butter. Makes it nice and creamy....yum, yum :D

    Plus you didn't need to give me such a shout out, though I love you for doing it. And I had no problems what so ever about getting you books signed and the pics to Abbi. I was going there anyway--no problems!

    Hugs xx

    1. Yes, she is nice! Very genuine and you can tell how much she loves the day job :)

      I can only eat vegemite with butter if the butter is melted. I don't generally eat margarine or butter, just don't like it. But I can have a tiny bit if it is melted.

      Hehe!! We can never really get overseas people liking Vegemite. I LOVE IT!! I eat it on weetbix, although you can get a mouthful and takes awhile to chew dry weetbix, lol.

      I love it with a baget with bacon lettuce and vegemite...yum! When I was pregnant with # 1 kidlet I had this craving for that combo and it has stuck. The guys at the cafe used to laugh when I came waddling in, cause they knew what I was going to be having, lol!!

      Thanks again, you made the giveaways possible :) And I got em 2 signed books , yay!! xxx

    Brilliant review Michelle. You asked some really good questions and didn't seem too nervous, I'd have been much much worse!

    1. Thanks :) OO trust me I was so hot at my end, I wasn't sure when to ask the next Q, to keep it flowing, so my brain was buzzing with all these things I should be not doing, like flapping hands about, butting in...etc.... but got there. It is quite hard interviewing on skype. But I did enjoy it once I calmed down. Practice makes for better interviewing, me thinks, lol!

    2. Oh and when I started off with, 'um, um,um, um, um....' .....oh dear, on the inside I was telling myself to snap out of it, move forward. I can stutter when I get nervous, so I was concerned about that too. But , I am looking forward to doing another one, cause I think the more I do the better I will be:)
