I've got some exciting news, I won't beat about the easel, I'll lay it bare...
...Nuala Ní Chonchúir is coming to New Zealand to Kick off her world tour to promote her new book of short fiction Nude...and the best bit...she's starting the tour here!
That's right, I'm going to be hosting the first stop off! How cool is this?!
(I've only ever hosted a sheep tick before so I hope I can pull this off!)
And that's where I need you, dear bloggers. I'm going to be interviewing Nuala (AKA WOMEN RULE WRITER), and I thought it might be fun to have a little audience participation.
Follow me into my studio and I will elaborate.
By all means take a seat - but not that one! It has wet paint on it. Phewsh!
Oh, just look how the light has illuminated your cheek...I digress...so...here's the thing. I'm going to be asking Nuala some questions and I thought, wow, of all the times I would have loved to ask a 'real' writer some questions, and now I can! And wouldn't it be great to share that feeling?
This is what I'm going to do. I am offering you, dear bloggers, the opportunity to ask Nuala a question of your own. Here's the deal. I get to ask three questions. I'm giving up my third question to one of you, so it had better be a good one.
Rules: it has to be a question about writing or about Nude.
What's in it for you? You mean, that isn't enough? You're a tough bunch to please.
Well, Nude is published by Salt (and is available to buy now - ha), and Salt's website receives '80,000 visits a month...14 million hits a year'.
Uh? Not following?
As a little thank you for hosting Nuala, I get my blog profiled on Salt's website - yup - I get (in theory) 80,000 extra visits to my blog per month (that's 80,006 bloggers in total!) As my reward to you guys for your questions, I will guest profile your blogs, thus sending that extra traffic your way, too.
Now are you interested?
I'll only be asking one of your questions mind, the rest of you will still get profiled for contributing though - that sound fair?
I look forward to writing your portrait!
