Some awesome new content up today on the Shudder Blog Tour, including an interview with Alessa and Isaac over at Nomi’s Paranormal Palace (plus an excellent review) and a guest post titled “Book Pirates: Not the ‘Arrrgh’ Kind” (plus giveaway & excerpt) at Reading Between the Wines! Here’s a sneak preview:
From the Alessa/Isaac interview:
Naomi: Hi Alessa and Isaac! Welcome to my Paranormal Palace!!
Alessa: We’re very excited to be here!
Isaac: Thanks so much for having us, Naomi!
Naomi: The pleasure is mine, I assure you! Alright, let’s get straight into the nitty gritty. How are you both adjusting to life now that you are out of the spotlight, not that you realised that you were being filmed before…
A: (big sigh) It’s a relief! It was SO difficult during Stitch once I realized what was going on. Can you imagine getting dressed or going to the bathroom knowing there are thousands of people watching you?? It was horrifying.
I: Yeah, we were definitely happy to get some alone time in Shudder. (gives Alessa a wink)
A: (laughs and elbows Isaac) <continue reading>
From the guest post:
I have a confession to make: at one time in my life, I was a pirate.
No, silly, not the swashbuckling “arrrgh” kind – the digital media stealing kind, of course. Though I’m proud to say I’ve since reformed my unscrupulous ways and now purchase all of my music and streaming TV legally, in my past life as an internet scalawag I probably acquired upwards of 1000 songs and watched at least 10 or so seasons of some of my favorite shows through shady online “sharing” sites.
I still vividly remember the day in high school when one of my friends introduced me to Napster. The first song I ever downloaded was “Flagpole Sitta” by Harvey Danger, and the experience changed my life. I never looked back (well, until I graduated college and had a job and realized that a) I could afford to pay for stuff and b) it actually made me feel better to do so, since I would never under any other circumstances condone stealing and I was tired of being a hypocrite).
So I get it. Really, I do. Why pay for something you can get for free? <continue reading>
Thanks so much to Naomi and Crystal for hosting today!!
