Zdaj je pa čas, da preberem knjigo Tisto. Sicer mi Kingove knjige ne delujejo grozljive in njegov stil ni ravno po mojem okusu. Mogoče mu pa pred filmom dam priložnost. Nikoli se ne ve😊 Košarkar naj bo sem prebrala v najstniških letih, vendar sem vsebino že pozabila. Mogoče mi film osveži spomin. Bi pa z veseljem gledala film Mati, da vidim kako se Jennifer znajde v grozljivki. Njene vloge so namreč odlično odigrane.


Katere nove knjige in filma se najbolj veselite?
Pojdimo brat! Knjigoljubka Maja

BOOK BEAU


Danes vam predstavljam Book Beau. Kaj za hudiča je to? Book Beau je neke vrste torbica za knjigo ali e-bralnik. Narejena je iz blaga in naj bi zaščitila vaše knjige ali e-bralnik pred poškodbami. Blago je odporno na vlago in primerne velikosti, da ga spravite v vsako torbo in tako imate knjigo vedno s seboj. 
Zasledila sem tudi izraza Book Protector in Book Sleeves. Kako se pravilno reče po slovensko ne vem.

Sama imam svoj prvi Book Beau in res sem zadovoljna z njim. Dobila sem ga v nagradni igri na Instagramu. Izbrala sem si ga v temno modri barvi z zvezdami.
Blago je zelo mehko in prijetno na otip. V spodnjem desnem kotu ima prišito nalepko z imenom Book Beau. Znortaj je črne barve, ob straneh so šivi, ki od zunaj niso vidni. Narejen je lepo. Moteče je edino to, da se iz zgornje strani ne da zapreti. Knjigo enostavno samo postavimo notri in vzamemo ven, ko jo potrebujemo.

Book Beau ustvarja Bonita Bottelo, ki prihaja iz Texasa (ZDA). Njeni izdelki potujejo po vsem svetu. Naročite jih lahko na Etsy-ju ali Kickstarter-ju. Od septembra naprej bo sodelovala tudi z bookbox OwlCreate, ki bo v svoje pošiljke dodala Book Beau. Beniti lahko sledite tudi na Instagramu in Facebooku, kamor redno objavlja slike svojih izdelkov, kot tudi njihovih zadovoljnih uporabnikov.


Sama sem z njo zelo zadovoljna. Raje berem mehke vezave, ki pa se veliko hitreje uničijo od trdih. Vedno imam knjigo s sabo in zgodilo se mi je že, da se mi je v torbi pomečkala in raztrgala. Sedaj dam knjigo v Book Beau in potem v torbo, zato se mi ne more pomečkati. Zadeva je zelo uporabna, zato jo tudi delim z vami. 😍
Na spodnjih slikah vidite moj Book Beau.






Kakšen se vam zdi Book Beau?

Book Tour & Interview: EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN by JESSICA REDMERSKI

Title (Naslov): EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN
Author (Avtor): Jessica Redmerski

Genre (Kategorija): fiction & literature (fikcija in literatura), post-apocalyptic (postapokaliptični roman), suspense (napet roman), romance (romantika)

683 pages (683 strani)




BLURB (OPIS)

Thais Fenwick was eleven-years-old when civilization fell, devastated by a virus that killed off the majority of the world’s population. For seven years, Thais and her family lived in a community of survivors deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. But when her town is attacked by raiders, she and her blind sister are taken away to the East-Central Territory where she is destined to live the cruel and unjust kind of life her late mother warned her about.

Atticus Hunt is a troubled soldier in Lexington City who has spent the past seven years trying to conform to the vicious nature of men in a post-apocalyptic society. He knows that in order to survive, he must abandon his morals and his conscience and become like those he is surrounded by. But when he meets Thais, morals and conscience win out over conformity, and he risks his rank and his life to help her. They escape the city and set out together on a long and perilous journey to find safety in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Struggling to survive in a world without electricity, food, shelter, and clean water, Atticus and Thais shed their fear of growing too close, and they fall hopelessly in love. But can love survive in such dark times, or is it fated to die with them?


Thais Fenwick je imela enajst let, ko je razpadla civilizacija. Virus je uničil večino prebivalstva. Thais je v skupini preživelih s svojo družino živela sedem let na območju gore Appalachian. Nato pa jih napadejo jahači. Njo in njeno slepo sestro odpeljejo v ozemlje East-Central, kjer ju čaka kruto in nepravično življenje o kateremu jima je pripovedovala že mama. 

Atticus Hunt je težaven vojak iz Lexington Cityja. Zadnjih sedem let je pomagal moškim žrtvam v post apokaliptični skupnosti. Ve, da mora opustiti svojo moralo in vest in postati podoben ostalim, če želi preživeti v tem svetu. Ko sreča Thais mu morala in vest ne dasta miru. Riskira svoj položaj in svoje življenje, da ji pomaga. Skupaj pobegneta iz mesta. Odpravita se na dolgo nevarno potovanje, da bi prispela na varno v Shreveport v Louisiani. 

Ko se trudita preživeti v svetu brez elektrike, hrane, zatočišča in čiste vode, se Atticus in Thais počasi zbližujeta in njun strah preraste v ljubezen. Ali lahko ljubezen preživi v teh temačnih časih, ali ji je usojeno, da umre skupaj z njima?

EXCERPT (ODLOMEK)


“Are you still angry?” I asked him.
“About what?”
“Giving the bread away to those people.”
He shook his head against the quilt.
“No, Thais, I’m not still angry.”
After a moment, he said, “Thais?”
“Mmm-hmm?”
“Don’t ask me to kiss you again.”
I paused, tensed. “Why not?” I was afraid of the answer.
We continued to look up at the stars. Behind us the horses whickered and their tails swished about. A light breeze combed through the trees, carrying the bitter and sweet scents of pine and honeysuckle with it.
Finally, Atticus answered, “Because whatever you want from me, Thais, I’d rather you just take it.”
I wanted to cry.
I smiled to myself instead.

INTERVIEW (INTERVJU)

ON WRITING (O PISANJU):

Tell us a little about why you write in so many different genres. Does it work for you?
I can’t stick to one genre. I love writing all types of stories. Does it work for me? Yes and no. Yes, because I’d start to feel claustrophobic if I had to write in the same genre all the time. No, because I think it confuses my readers that I write everything under the same author name. I regret that decision to this day. My advice to authors considering it: Don’t make this mistake!

Povejte nam zakaj pišete v različnih žanrih. Ali vam tako odgovarja?
Ne morem se osredotočiti na samo en žanr. Rada pišem različne zgodbe. Ali mi odgovarja? Da in ne. Da, ker se počutim klavstrofobično, če moram pisati samo v enem žanru. Ne, ker mislim, da to zmede moje bralce, sploh, ker pišem vse pod enim imenom. To odločitev še danes obžalujem. Moj nasvet avtorjem, ki se bodo odločili za to: Ne naredite te napake!

How do you plot your novels? Do you outline?
I never outline because I like to let the story and the characters take me where they want to go. Some authors can outline very well and it works for them, but I can’t do it. It has always felt more natural to me to just go along for the ride and see where it takes me, kind of like in real life, I guess. Some scenes in my books were figured out ahead of time, but not ‘planned out’ ahead of time, and there’s a big difference. The only exception to this method is that I do always know my ending before I begin. (Except with my book DIRTY EDEN).

Kako nastajajo vsebine vaših knjig? Si delate povzetke?
Nikoli si ne delam povzetkov, ker želim, da me zgodba in junaki popeljejo kamorkoli želijo. Nekateri avtorji si zelo uspešno delajo povzetke in jim to odgovarja, ampak meni to ne ustreza. Nekako bolj naravno se mi zdi, da me pisanje sproti popelje skozi zgodbo, tako kot v resničnem življenju. Nekatere scene v mojih knjigah se razvijejo v naprej, vendar niso planirane, da se. To je velika razlika. Edina izjema je, da vedno vem kakšen bo zaključek, preden začnem s pisanjem (razen pri knjigi DIRTY EDEN).

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
I’m impatient. Very impatient. It’s challenging for me to get through the first 23 chapters of every book because I have a bad habit of looking at how much I have left to go. I just want to be done with it already so that my readers can enjoy!

Ali je pri vašem pisanju kaj kar vam predstavlja izziv?
Sem nepotrpežljiva. Zelo nepotrpežljiva. Zame je izziv, da grem skozi prva dva/tri poglavja v knjigi, ker imam to grdo navado, da gledam nazaj in vidim koliko sem izpustila. Želim si, da čimprej zaključim, da potem moji bralci lahko čimprej uživajo v branju.

What is your favorite part of the writing process?
The last sentence. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love getting into the story, living out my character’s lives, but there’s nothing like a finished manuscript. It’s a huge accomplishment and I doubt I’ll ever tire of it.

Kateri je vaš najljubši del pisanja?
Zadnji stavek. Ne razumite me narobe. Rada se vživim v zgodbo, živim z junaki, ampak najlepše je, ko zaključim s pisanjem.

What would you like for readers to take away from your novels?
I just want readers to be able to connect on some level with the characters I create, and take with them an experience rather than just a story.

Kaj si želite, da vaši bralci odnesejo od vaših knjig?
Želim si, da se povežejo z junaki, ki jih ustvarim in doživijo z njimi posebno izkušnjo. Da jim prinesejo nekaj več, kot samo zgodbo.

When did you first realize that you wanted to become a writer?
I started my first novel at the age of thirteen and I’ve been writing ever since. Writing has been the one consistent thing throughout my life and I can’t imagine life without it.

Kdaj ste prvič ugotovili, da želite postati pisateljica?
Svoj prvi roman sem napisala pri trinajstih letih in od takrat naprej pišem. Pisanje sem uskladila s svojim življenjem in ne predstavljam si življenja brez pisanja.

What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?
I never stop writing for the day at the end of a scene or sentence, but instead right in the middle of them. This helps me prevent writer’s block and keeps my mind fresh.

Kaj je vaša najbolj nenavadna posebnost pri pisanju?
Nikoli ne neham pisati na koncu odlomka ali scene ampak nekje v sredini. To mi pomaga pri blokiranju in ohranja moje misli sveže.

Do you have a routine that you use to get into the writing frame-of-mind?
Coffee.

Ali imate rutino, ki ohranja vaše ideje v nekem okvirju?
Kava.

Do you think children are more encouraged these days to read and/or write?
I think more than ever children are encouraged to read and write and I LOVE it. I know Harry Potter had A LOT to do with this and that’s just another reason why I have so much love and respect for J.K. Rowling.

Mislite, da imajo v tem času otroci več poguma za branje ali pisanje?
Mislim, da imajo vsi otroci dovolj poguma za branje in pisanje. In obožujem to. Vem, da je eden glavnih razlogov zato Harry Potter. Ravno zato obožujem in spoštujem pisateljico J.K. Rowling.

When it comes to writing, what are your strong points? What are your weaknesses?
I love to write dialogue. It feels and flows more natural to me. I feel like I struggle a little more with description, because I’m impatient and sometimes it feels like the description is slowing me down. But I pace myself! If I didn’t, the entire novel would be one giant conversation.

Kar se tiče pisanja, kaj so vaše prednosti in slabosti?
Rada pišem dialoge. Počutim se veliko bolj naravno. Zna biti zelo naporno, ko vse to opisujem. Sem nepotrpežljiva in včasih imam občutek kot, da me opisi zaustavljajo. Ampak nekako ohranim mirnost, ker če je nebi, bi bil celoten roman samo nek velik pogovor.




PERSONAL STUFF (OSEBNE ZADEVE):


Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
I don’t have a favorite – I have several! Anne Rice and Neil Gaiman I have admired for many years. I love Rice’s deep, descriptive style and Gaiman’s unique ideas. But I also love Paullina Simons and Cormac McCarthy – there are just so many! And, of course, there’s J.K. Rowling, but I don’t really have to name her, do I? Isn’t she everybody’s favorite by default? 😊

Kdo je vaš najljubši pisatelj/ica in kaj vas pritegne pri njegovih/njenih knjigah?
Nimam najljubšega pisatelja - imam jih ogromno. Vsa leta že obožujem Anne Rice in Neil Gaimana. Obožujem Ricein globok opisni stil in Gaimanove edinstvene ideje. Všeč sta mi tudi Paullina Simons in Cormack McCarthy - enostavno jih je preveč. In seveda J.K. Rowling, ampak nje ni treba imenovati, kajne. Ona je priljubljena pri vseh. 😊

Which do you prefer: ebook, hardback or paperback?
Definitely paperback, hands down. I have a Kindle and it’s just not the same. Hardbacks can’t be held comfortably (yes, I bend the spines! I’m totally guilty!). I can’t imagine a world without physical books. It’s depressing to imagine, actually.

Katero obliko knjig imate raje: e-knjigo, mehko vezavo ali trdo vezavo?
Sigurno mehko vezavo. Imam Kindle, samo ni enako. Trde vezave znajo biti trpežne (sem ena tistih, ki uniči hrbtne strani; priznam, da sem kriva). Ne morem si zamisliti sveta brez fizičnih knjig. Verjetno je kriva domišljija.

What is your favorite type of food?
Mexican!

Katera je vaša najljubša hrana?
Mehiška hrana.

Who is your favorite book boyfriend?
Shura. 😉

Kdo je vaš priljubljeni "book boyfriend" (fant iz knjige)?
Shura. 😉

Besides writing, what do you like to do in your free time?
Of course, I love to read. I also love the outdoors (hiking, swimming, biking, tennis, etc.), and binge-watching television series.

Kaj še počnete v prostem času poleg pisanja?
Seveda rada berem. Rada sem v naravi (grem na pohode, plavam, kolesarim, igram tenis...) in pretirano gledam televizijske serije.

Is there one book that has had an impact on not only your writing, but on your personally?
That would be THE VAMPIRE ARMAND by Anne Rice. It’s a book that I’ve read four or five times and the one that really inspired me to try to become a published author.

Ali obstaja knjiga, ki ima vpliv na vas? Ne samo na vaše pisanje, ampak tudi na vašo osebnost?
To je knjiga THE VAMPIRE ARMAND (Vampir Armand) pisateljice Anne Rice. Prebrala sem jo štirikrat ali petkrat. Ta knjiga me je navdihnila, da sem postala objavljena pisateljica.

Tell us your favorite quote.
“Love is a trick that Nature plays on us to get us to reproduce.” – Callisto – Xena Warrior Princess. I’m not against love, I’ve always just been awed by that quote. Not to mention, Callisto was awesome!

Povejte nam vaš najljubši citat.
“Love is a trick that Nature plays on us to get us to reproduce.” – Callisto – Xena Warrior Princess (Ksena bojevniška princesa). Nič nimam proti ljubezni, samo vedno sem občudovala ta citat. Da ne pozabim omeniti, Callisto je bila veličastna.

If the Earth suddenly became uninhabitable, would you rather live under the sea or in space?
In space! I’m obsessed with the Universe. Besides, the thought of living in the ocean sort of terrifies me.

Če Zemlja v tem trenutno postane neprimerna za življenje, kje bi si želeli živeti? Pod vodo ali v vesolju?
V vesolju? Obsedena sem z vesoljem. Poleg tega me življenje v oceanu nekako straši.

What was your favorite pastime as a kid?
Playing in the wooded creek at my grandparents’ house in Greer’s Ferry, Arkansas.

Kaj je bilo vaše priljubljeno razvedrilo v otroštvu?
Igranje ob potoku v gozdu pri mojih starih starših v Greer’s Ferry v Arkansasu.

ON SELF-PUBLISHING (O SAMOZALOŽBI):


Do you believe that many novelists choose to selfpublish out of frustration with trying to publish traditionally?
When selfpublishing on Amazon first became a thing, I do think most of those going it on their own were doing it out of frustration. I was one of them! Even though I selfpublished my first book a short time after it was becoming the thing to do, I totally did it because I tried for almost three years to land an agent, but to no avail. But now, I think more and more authors are doing it because they feel it’s the better route for them, and are bypassing the queryreject method altogether. Personally, I like both!

Ali verjamete, da veliko pisateljev izbere raje samozaložbo, kot založnika zaradi frustracije?
Ko se je na Amazonu prvič pojavila samozaložba, se je veliko pisateljev odločilo zanjo zato, da so se znebili frustracije. Tudi jaz sem bila ena izmed njih. Ko sem v samozaložbi objavila prvo knjigo, je preteklo kar nekaj časa, da je postala to kar je. Tri leta sem iskala agenta ampak zaman. Mislim, da gre čedalje več pisateljev na svoje, ker jim je tako bližja pot do uspeha. Meni odgovarjata obe.

How important is it to understand the basics of publishing before delving into selfpublishing?
Writers need to understand that selfpublishing is not easy. Sure, you can write a book and upload it and start selling, but there is so much more to it than that. If a writer chooses to selfpublish they must commit to some hardcore selfpromoting and spending a lot of their own money (professional editing, giveaways, review copies, cover art, advertisements, etc.). Bypassing all of this stuff can leave your book buried beneath the avalanche of millions of other books competing for the same exposure.

Kako pomembno je poznati osnove založništva, preden se spustiš v samozaložbo?
Pisatelji morajo razumeti, da samozaložba ni lahka. Seveda knjigo napišeš, jo izdaš in začneš prodajati. Ampak tukaj je še veliko več kot samo to. Če se pisatelj odloči za samozaložbo, se mora pripraviti tudi na samo promocijo in zapraviti veliko svojega denarja za to (profesionalno urejanje, nagradne igre, izdaje za recenzije, naslovnica, reklame...). Če izpustiš vse to, se lahko tvoja knjiga izgubi med milijoni ostalimi izdanimi knjigami.

Can you provide a few selfpublishing best practices you believe brought you literary success?
Some of what I’ve already mentioned are good practices, but also, I’d like to point out two things that I believe contributed to my success: kindness and professionalism. I’ve read a lot of horror stories from book reviewers who were verbally attacked by authors because they turned away a review request or gave a bad review, and similar stories about authors and agents. Know in advance that no matter how hard you worked to write your book that it’s not the next bestseller (until it is), that it isn’t better than J.K. Rowling or Stephen King and that you have absolutely no right to make these statements out loud to anyone. Period. And lastly, no matter how much it hurts your feelings or pisses you off, never reply to a bad review. Ever. Not even if something the reviewer said was 100% wrong. Just don’t do it.

Nam lahko predlagate nekaj nasvetov o samozaložbi, za katere menite, da lahko pripeljejo do uspeha?
Najprej je pomembna dobra praksa. V ospredje bi postavila dve stvari, ki so prispevale k mojem uspehu: prijaznost in profesionalnost. Prebrala sem veliko grozljivih romanov, katerih knjižne recenzije so bile slabe ter negativne in so jih zato avtorji verbalno napadli. Vnaprej je potrebno vedeti, da vaša knjiga ni najbolj prodajana (ni še), ne glede na to koliko se trudite zanjo. Ni boljša od J.K. Rowlingove ali Stephena Kinga,  zato nimate pravice naglas izreči vse te nesramne stavke. Ne glede na to koliko vas boli ali razjezi, nikoli ne odgovarjajte na slabe in negativne recenzije. Nikoli. Tudi, če je bralec napisal nekaj 100% narobe. Ignorirajte.

OTHER BOOKS (OSTALE KNJIGE):

Fans of your In the Company of Killers series are wanting to know why it’s taking so long to release book #7. Can you give us some information on it?
I do get this question everyday it seems, but it’s so hard to reply to everybody. I’ll do my best to explain what’s going on with book 7 right here. So here goes! I’m 100% dedicated to that series, and I know it’s frustrating that after six books, it’s taking a longer-than-average time to publish the seventh. But I need everyone to understand that not only have I been going through a lot of personal things the past year-and-a-half that prevented me from writing much of anything, but also, I just needed to take a step back and finish EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN before I tried to tackle any other book. EUtS has been a work-in-progress going on, I think, almost three years now. No matter what else I tried to write, EUtS kept looming in the back of my mind, and it was affecting my current works-in-progress (book 7 included). I knew that if I didn’t just put everything else aside and finish EUtS that my other books would, quite honestly, be shit. Not all writers are the same, of course, but I’m one of the ones who absolutely must work on the book that's taking up the most space in my heart and mind, instead of the one everybody in waiting on. But I promise, I'll be back to work on SPIDERS IN THE GROVE soon! Just please be Patient with me.😊

Oboževalci vaše zbirke In the Company of Killers se sprašujejo zakaj je potrebno toliko časa, da izide naslednja knjiga v zbirki. Ali nam lahko podate kakšne informacije o tem?
To vprašanje dobim čisto vsak dan in zelo težko je odgovoriti nanj. Poskusila bom najboljše pojasniti kaj se dogaja s sedmo knjigo v zbirki. 100% sem predana tej zbirki in zelo frustrirajoče je, da po šesti knjigi potrebujem toliko časa za izdajo sedme. Morate razumeti, da poleg osebni stvari, ki so se mi zgodile zadnja leta in mi preprečujejo pisanje, sem želela dokončati še knjigo EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN (EUtS), predem začnem katero drugo knjigo. EUtS je bila v nastajanju približno tri leta. Karkoli sem začela pisati, vedno se je v mojih mislih pojavljala EUtS, kar mi je oteževalo pisanje ostalih knjig (tudi sedme knjige). Vedela sem, da moram vse ostale pustiti za sabo in dokončati EUtS, drugače bi vse ostale postale eno sranje. Vem, da nismo vsi pisatelji enaki. Jaz sem ena tistih, ki moram delati na knjigi, ki je trenutno v mojem srcu in v mojem umu. Obljubim vam, da se bom kmalu vrnila k pisanju SPIDERS IN THE GROVE. Prosim, da ste potrpežljivi!

You stated that you were going to write Lily’s book (from THE EDGE OF NEVER) – is that still a certainty?
I do still intend to write Lily’s book, but at this time I can’t estimate when that might be.

Rečeno je bilo, da boste začeli pisati Lilyno knjigo (iz zbirke NIKOLI TVOJA). Ali to še vedno velja?
Še vedno imam namen napisati Lilyno knjigo, vendar ne vem točno kdaj se bo to zgodilo.
