It describes itself as:
We slice and serve one author a day for fun and prizes and a good, old fashioned roasting. First, we whet your appetite with a short excerpt from the author's book, followed by three questions loosely related to the passage. Some questions are silly, others are straightforward and the rest are plain crunchy. For dessert, the author picks the winner who answers the most questions correctly – or the most creatively. We like spice, but some authors prefer things sweet, which makes Book Roast deliciously unpredictable.
The prize: a free copy of the author's book (and an occasional surprise!) Each contest runs 9am - 9pm Eastern Time (U.S.)
Best of all, authors will pop into the blog throughout the day to answer questions, share a laugh and toss out some insider tidbits.
Three of my favorite authors are lined up for Book Roast's debut weekend, Bernita (love her Lillie character!), Therese (Souvenir will make you cry. Promise.), and Erica (The Roofer is in my top five all-time favorite books, so is Do You Wear High Hells in Heaven?):
Now the bad.
I'm going to the dentist today.
The last time I went to the dentist, I tried to think of silver linings, ways to comfort myself. So I came up with this: If it hurts, if they yank a tooth out or something without numbing it, then it'll be good research for a torture scene.
This was not helpful.
I'm not even getting anything done today except x-rays and a cleaning. I'm going to a University place, because it's cheaper to deal with my root canal there.
But having students work on me is a little scary.
I've done it before, but I was a student myself, and let me tell you, the dental students were THE HOTTEST GUYS on campus. And I had several friends among them, so when I went, I was in a room with like three or five of my friends.
That was cool.
Not so cool now.
