Hey everyone!!! Today I'm interviewing my blogger friend Naomi Bennet about her recently self-published novella Boredom and Glamour Clashes. I am super excited to be interviewing her and so proud of what she's done!!! This book sounds amazing, guys. You can purchase it for yourself here. Anyway, let's get on with the interview! My questions are in red or black, Naomi's answers are in dark red. Just so ya know:)
Firstly, thank you Elizabethany for interviewing me! It really makes me feel like a real author!There are two main characters in my novella. The “hero” we shall hear about later on, so I will talk about the sweet, bubbly Shirley Violet Trimm, who is the heroine of the story. She is a short girl, nice and roly-poly with lots of curls. I imagine her to look like the actress Shirley Temple did, as an older girl, of course. Shirley’s failing in life is probably being led away by all the world’s exciting stuff- she’s a little gullible and thinks everything she sees is something amazing and lovely. In the end, she realises it isn’t, though. Her strengths are her cheerful personality and bubbly nature. She has a lovely spontaneous smile and can cheer up a whole room. She’s young and sweet and lot of people like her.
2-Is the story funny, sad, or sweet?
8-What is the main character's goal in life? What does she accomplish over the course of the novella? Shirley’s main goal in life was to run away from her Uncle (she does this in the first chapter), wear pretty clothes (she does this when she starts working at a fashion shop), and meet the love of her life. Yes, she does accomplish her goals. (Heroines normally do, don’t they?)
9-Who is the silliest/most annoying character?
Well, because the writer of the novella (me) is a rather nonsensical one, almost all the characters are silly ones. The silliest character is, perhaps, Cooper’s brain-less cousin Derdi (short for Ferdinand), and the most annoying character is Shirley’s monstrous uncle Marmeduke. *Cue violet, loud orchestral music again.
10-If the hero and the heroine went to a cafe together, what would each one order to drink?
Love this question, Bethany. Well, Shirley would take the most elegant, trendy drink she knew, perhaps a cocktail or a long glass with fizzy water, or something like that. Cooper would restrict to some good English tea.
Thanks again, Elizabethany! I hope you all enjoyed it! You can buy a copy of my novella ‘Boredom and Glamour Clashes’ here: http://www.lulu.com/shop/naomi-bennet/boredom-glamour-clashes/paperback/product-21761261.html
