10 Book Confessions: Heather Jacobs

Wow, December 30th already. Where did the time go! It's Monday, which means 10 Book Confessions. I've got fellow author, Heather Jacobs on the blog!

10 Book Confessions – Heather Jacobs

(1)    I hated reading Little Women and therefore didn’t read Little Men or Jo’s Boys.
(2)    Ironically A Long Fatal Love Chase by Louisa May Alcott is my favorite book.

(3)    My mother is going to hate me for this but when I was younger (as well as more recently) she told me to stop buying books. Granted she worked at a library and encouraged me to check them out rather than buy them. She wants me to read, but save money too.

(4)    In middle school and high school I was fascinated with the occult and when I’d get to go to the bookstore and pick out books I’d buy books about them. I once bought a book about black magic that had my mother thinking I was practicing magic. I wasn’t practicing, but just fascinated with the history.

(5)    Like Karen Y Bynum I sniff library books, but I don’t stop just there. I sniff ALL books. My father worked in a magazine printing press for over forty years. He would come home from work smelling like ink and paper. It’s my favorite smell in the world.

(6)    I read Fifty Shades of Grey and I liked it. I have no desire to head for the Red Room of Pain, but I like me some Christian Grey.

(7)    I also read The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by Ann Rice, published under her pseudonym A.N. Roquelaure. It was unnecessary and gratuitous and I haven’t been able to finish the last book in the series, Beauty’s Release. It was the last Ann Rice book I’ll ever read after her lashing out at reviewers.

(8)    I love military history books.

(9)    I often buy and read books that people have rated one star’s because I want to know why they exactly hated it. I recently did that with September Girls by Bennett Madison. I haven’t finished it yet. We’ll see if I rate it one star too.

(10)I used Cliff Notes in High School and College. Most notably for Moby Dick and Wuthering Heights. Two books I still have not read to this day.

Coming soon from Heather Jacobs, is her novel, We the People due out sometime in Early 2014 from Pandamoon Publishing.

Imagine a United States where a duly elected President leads a coup and declares himself Emperor. Overnight, the world’s most celebrated democracy becomes a dictatorship.

United States citizens have lost their rights and their ability to fight back. The Army of the American Dynasty makes sure of that. Citizens are told what to do and where to live. Reilly Grant is one of the lucky ones. She was given a coveted position in the Army even though she secretly did not buy into their ideals. Taking a huge risk, she defects and joins a band of rebels determined to overthrow Emperor Ronson. But even rebels can have hidden agendas. Who can Reilly trust? The rebels whose cause she believes in or the government that wants her back?
