Online Love...

Do love to know interesting facts about people? Things you'd never think to ask? Or maybe answers you'd love to know but questions you're afraid to ask!

Well, I've started a new segment where I am asking authors around the blog random questions. They've had so many interviews about their writing that it's time we get to know the real them... random and all!

Today I have Lisa Becker. She wrote Click: An Online Love Story.


 
So let's check out the dish!!

1. Do you keep baking soda in your fridge? Yes and I obediently change it every six months like a good girl should.

2. If you were to create an online dating profile what would it say? Must love dogs... Get a copy of Click: An Online Love Story and read Renee’s profile. That’s almost the exact one I used to meet my husband 11 years ago. The book is loosely based on my experiences.

3. What do you eat for breakfast? If time and effort wasn't an option what would it be? (I'd chose Crepes). A goat cheese and mushroom omelet. Ooooh. I’m hungry!

4. What song would you dance to alone in your bedroom? You must answer...honestly (Yes you can pretend your sixteen). I don’t need to pretend. Is, was and always will be “Love is a Battlefield” by Pat Benatar. In fact, I’m doing it right now as I type.

5. If you dug up your imaginary keepsake box from the garden what would we find? Pictures, videos and digital diaries of my two girls’ early years which were lost when the computer hard drive crashed and I didn’t have a back up. L

Fun & Random Questions (as if the top weren't crazy enough)...

1. Mimosa or Bloody Mary - Mimosa! Would go great with my goat cheese and mushroom omelet.

2. Speed dating or Online dating - Online dating. That’s how I met my husband and what inspired Click: An Online Love Story.

3. Lip gloss or lipstick - Lip gloss. Doesn’t get stuck to my teeth as easily.

4. Lace or sequins - Neither. I'm a simple girl. I wear a lot of black. It’s slimming.

5. Fake flowers or real – Real…and frequently please.

She's such a sport!!! Click: An Online Love Story is available online!! Stop in and get your copy today!! Say hello to Lisa below! She'd love to hear from you!

Pk Hrezo said...

Cute! What a great idea, Jen!
I'm a mimosa kinda girl too. ;)

Leigh Ann said...

"I wear black. It's slimming."

My. Thoughts. Exactly.

(Awesome, Jen!)

Sarah Pearson said...

Yup. Already got this one on the 'to buy' list :)

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Oh this is such a cute idea! And much more rememberable than the usual long boring interviews that go up on blogs. I usually don't read them unless it's an author I already love, and I was going to buy their new book either way.

Tamara Hart Heiner said...

great questions!

Christie Koester said...

This totally cracked me up! Awesomeness!

Spangle said...

I love the randomness of these questions! Great post!

Jen Daiker said...

I'm loving the response on these questions and answers!!! I figured since my personality is quirky it's only fitting I make sure it's what I'm sharing!!!

Gives a little twist on interviews!!! More are ahead! So be sure to stick around :)

Matthew MacNish said...

Fun!

Dianne K. Salerni said...

I love your questions!!! And leading with the baking soda ... bwa, ha, ha! And yet, the answer does reveal a certain something about the person, doesn't it?? Thanks for the interview, Jen and Lisa!

Carrie said...

love these questions. This book looks fun. I'm going to check it out. Thanks for the recommendation.

Julianna said...

Although I do love 'Love is a Battlefield'... and 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' for that matter, you would find me dancing to Abba. :)

lynnrush said...

Great questions!! This is fun!!

Johanna Garth said...

That was such a fun interview to read and your favorite food made my stomach growl (audibly)!

Kathryn Elliott said...

Great questions! And now....I'm hungry.

Jemi Fraser said...

Great questions Jen!

Love the answers Lisa! Your omelet sounds just about perfect to me!

Kelley said...

I can honestly say I'm jonesing for the day I get asked random author questions! Nice ones, btw :)

Unknown said...

Thanks all. I appreciate the support and enthusiasm. Join the Facebook fan page for the book. When we reach 200 fans, I will reveal a teaser about the upcoming sequel, Double Click. :)

Ann said...

Now that was a fun interview Jen. It made me smile. I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to more!

Shelley Sly said...

I love this idea, Jen! And Lisa's book sounds incredible - must read!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I haven't heard Love is a Battlefield referenced in a very long time.

Samantha VĂ©rant said...

Click sounds like a most excellent read-- especially if it's loosely based on her life/experiences. Here's to real flowers and dancing in bedrooms alone.

GigglesandGuns said...

I like your idea and the interview very much.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Ha! You are so dang clever, Jen. I love this idea! Great questions . . . fun answers. :-)

Abby said...

This is hilarious and wonderful! I love it. And I have heard good things about that book. I need to read it. Love stuff like that. Guess I am hitting the bookstore tomorrow.

BTW- I love your interviews! Love your creative and fun questions!

Rebecca Bany said...
