Interview and Giveaway: Favorite Son by Will Freshwater

1528671_10200864004752449_1730714165_nTNA: Hi, Will, I’m so pleased to have you with us at The Novel Approach today. Why don’t we begin by having you tell the readers a little bit about yourself?

Will: My great-grandparents were from Romania (actually Transylvania), and the few remaining drops of “gypsy blood” pumping through my veins usually keep me from staying in any one place for very long.  I was born and raised in a small steel town outside of Pittsburgh, but I’ve moved around a lot.  Readers won’t be surprised to learn that I spent a considerable amount of time living in Boston and Washington, DC.  I currently reside in Morristown, New Jersey with my husband and our golden retriever.  In the interest of full disclosure, I have to confess that I’m a lawyer by trade, but honestly, it’s probably the least interesting thing about me!  My job doesn’t leave me with much free time, but when I’m not on the clock, I love hanging out with good friends, reading, and losing myself in writing.

A Sneak Peek At The Coming Week, A.F. Henley, Annabelle Jacobs, Brita Addams, Damon Suede, Eva Lefoy, Hayden Thorne, Hayley B. James, Liam Livings, Ofelia Grand, Piper Vaughn, Rebecca Cohen, Rick R. Reed, Vicktor Alexander, Will Freshwater

Here’s A Sneak Peek at the Coming Week

TNA BadgeGreetings, everyone! Thanks so much for popping in to see what we have coming up in the week ahead. We have lots of great blog tours, author guest posts, giveaways, and reviews in store for you, so have a look-see and what’s in store.

A quick note about the informal poll results we ran last week on the topic of ratings. Of the participating voters, a full 70% of you indicated that we could do away with a numerical rating system altogether, and it wouldn’t affect our reviews in the slightest, so that’s something we’ll be considering doing away with in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, though, here’s what’s on tap.
