There is No Small Call

Today we have guest Kirsten Oliphant! She’s a fabulous female with a love of writing. She’s dived into the self-publishing pool and has every intention of continuing her writing journey in hopes of a traditional route.

Today she has agreed to answer some quirky fun questions I know you all love!!!

1.       Which would make you feel more powerful Superman underwear or My Little Pony?

My Little Superman underwear, best of both worlds.

2.       If you were in Wal-Mart during the Zombie Apocalypse what would be your weapon of choice?

So many great choices… I might use the nearest person who looks like they belong on the People of Wal-Mart site.

3.       If you were a block of cheese, what would you look and smell like?

I am all about extremes, which means I’m torn between being a soft, fragrant cheese like Brie or a hard, stinky one like Parmesan.

4.       What makes you love a book?

Voice. Whether it’s a novel with characters who have great voices or a non-fiction book where the author writes with great voice, this is an instant turn-on or turn-off. I can read things that are just so-so, but all the books I love share this in common.

5.       If you could read in a foreign language, which language would you choose?


One-Word answers – GO!

1.       E-reader or Paperback? Paperback.

2.       Read on the sofa or read on the grass? Sofa.

3.        Coffee or Coke? Coffee.

4.       How often do you skim a book before reading it? Never.

5.       Favorite book(S)? Franny & Zooey (Salinge), East of Eden (Steinbeck), How to Be Lost (Ward), Sharp Objects (Flynn).

There Is No Small Call is my most recent foray into self-publishing. It is christian non-fiction, a bite-sized book about the big subject of calling. If you have ever wondered about the significance and purpose of your life, this book might provide encouragement. Spoiler alert: you DO have a calling and it is anything but small.
Where can you find this fabulous gal??? Depends on what you're looking for!
