Blog Tour: Wander Dust

I am happy to be a part of the Wander Dust blog tour, helping celebrate Michelle Warren's debut release! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you come back by Tuesday, when I feature a review of Wander Dust!

As part of the blog tour, I sent Michelle a couple questions and she was good enough to answer them for you! Settle in and read through our little Q&A session, then keep reading for more exciting information and even a giveaway!

A Word's Worth: How would you tweet Wander Dust?
Michelle: Ug! I’m awful at Twitter. I actually consider it my nemesis. Here's my best shot:
If the world snaps shut over you like a closing book, catapulting you into a wormhole, u r not a Normal. U r a Wanderer. #writers #Flitchat

AWW: According to your website, it was your love of scifi, paranormal and fantasy that prompted you to write your own novel. What authors do you think were most influential or inspirational in your writing of Wander Dust?
Michelle: I think my influence was less about other authors and more about the Discovery and History channels. I’m sort of a geek. A typical conversation with my sister will not be about the high heels I want to buy at the mall, because we are more likely to discuss whether angels could be aliens or if aliens could be time travelers. I’m fascinated by science that is perceived to be unrealistic, yet these things could be completely possible one day.

I love this quote from Arthur C. Clarke:
"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

AWW: What 5 books do you think everyone should read?
Michelle: My current favorites are:
  • Anything by Dan Brown  
  • The Tiger's Curse Series by Colleen Houck 
  • Daughter of Smoke and Bones by Laini Taylor
  • Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett & illustrated by Ron Barrett
  • Wander Dust!                       

AWW: What’s your favorite place to crash and read, and favorite snack?
Michelle: I have the most obnoxious, fluffy couch known to man. When I’m reading, I love to sink into the pillows and relax. I should say my favorite snack is a granola bar or something healthy like that, but then I’d just be lying. I’m a total chocoholic. There should be a support group for it.

Michelle's pretty cool, right? If you want to learn more, check out these sites:
And here's the official book trailer, which is, you know, pretty amazing:

But wait! THERE'S MORE!
Michelle has generously offered a prize package for readers and blog tour visitors here at A Word's Worth.
In case you can't tell from the photo...the grand prize includes a signed paperback of Wander Dust, an amazing Tolkien necklace (that I'd really like to keep for myself, but I'm sharing), and signed bookmarks!
I'm also going to have 2 winners who get signed bookmarks!

I'm going to make it really easy to enter: Just fill out the Rafflecopter form! If for some reason it's not working (I'm still learning how to use it), leave me a comment and let me know what's going on. And, because I know this is an awesome prize package, you have a few options for extra entries.

Oh, and there's one more thing, you'll want to remember this for a little later:

Good luck! And don't forget to swing by Tuesday to catch my review!
