Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet - 6 Seconds of Life by Tonya Fitzharris

Today is the Kick Off of the 6 Seconds of Life Virtual Book Tour! 

Young Adult / New Adult
Date Published: 9/1/12

 Maura has just jumped.
 Now she has precisely six seconds until she hits the water below her—just six more seconds until she is finally freed from her mundane and aimless existence.  Freed of all of the regrets and disappointments that have haunted her throughout her nineteen years.
 She just needs to be free.
 But as she falls, the most pivotal points of her life start to replay like a movie in her head: her family falling apart, her first love, her first heartbreak, her first true friends, and her first betrayal.  As she remembers these moments that brought her to this point, will she feel a sense of peace?  Or will her death be her greatest regret?

Reading Addiction Blog Tours MEET and GREET

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
I personally do. It’s something I’ve imagined myself doing
since I was a little kid. And I hope that I can someday make a
living of doing my favorite thing in the world--telling stories.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
Reading my manuscript, in its entirety, four times in a one week
period, during the very final leg of editing. I thought my eyes were
going to bleed out. I know it’s probably not the most effective
method, but every time I read it though, I found a typo. So I read it
again. And again. I’m such a perfectionist, and it really bogs me
down sometimes when it comes to editing my own work.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with
Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
I did, a professional in the publishing world gave me some great
advice to improve the initial manuscript. Even though we didn’t
end up working together, I really respect her insight and my book
wouldn’t be where it is without her.

#4 – What is next for your writing?
I’m doing some revisions to a manuscript I wrote LAST year,
long before “6 Seconds of Life,” and hope to release it in
November. It’s another New Adult novel about a college
sophomore studying abroad in Europe.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so,
what are you currently reading?
I do! Young and New Adult are my absolute favorite genres,
but unfortunately, I’ve let myself get swept up in a ton of non-
fiction / publishing and writing books over the past few months. I
have the following on my TBR pile though, and I hope I can

finally get to them in a week or so: “Easy” by Tammara
Webber, “This is Not a Test” by Courtney Summers, and “Shine”
by Lauren Myracle.

This or That?

#1 - iPd or Mp3?
My iPod is another appendage.

#2 – Chocolate or Vanilla?
Dark chocolate. Cold. It’s the best.

#3 – Mashed Potatoes or French Fries?
French Fries, for sure. I’ve become somewhat of a French Fry
aficionado after living in Belgium for two years, and I’ve grown to
love them more than ever--especially with their amazing invention
known as “Samurai Sauce,” which is basically spicy mayo.

#4 – Comedy or Drama?
Since good comedies are hard to come by these days, I’ll say

#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks? that bad?!? The only things I’ve read from either
author have been very romance heavy. Of course I don’t mind
having a little in a book, but I don’t necessarily want it to be the
main plot line.

#6 – Fantasy or Reality?

#7 – Call or Text?
Text. I’ve never been one to enjoy just chatting on the phone.

#8 – Public School or Home School?
I’ve only ever been in Public School, so I guess I would pick
that. But I would be interested in learning more about Home
School and maybe even considering it for any future kids of mine--

I am a teacher. I think there are great benefits to both though.

#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate
Coffee, for sure

#10 – eBook or Paperback?
eBooks. They have opened up an awesome world of easy
accessibility for both readers and writers. Plus, where would I be
as an author without them?
