Blog Tour: Beth Ann Masarik - The World Among Us

Thank you for having me on the blog today, Mickey! I really appreciate this opportunity. I was going to have one of my characters fill this out, but, unfortunately, they all seem to be asleep. SO, now you get to see what I prefer :o) But, don’t worry, Selene & Damien will be around on Tuesday’s blog for some interview questions. They must be getting ready for their first interview as a couple. Everyone together now say, “Awe!” LOL. Now, for my answers.

  • Chocolate or Vanilla?
    Oh, most definitely chocolate. And even better? Milk Chocolate, though, white chocolate is OK once in a while. Dark chocolate is too bitter for my liking.
  • Computer or Television?
    It honestly all depends on my mood. Usually, the computer means work for me, so, when I want to really unwind, I stick with the television.
  • Myspace or Facebook?
    Years ago, I would have said Myspace. But, let’s face it, Myspace has gone down hill, and everyone I know (or at least 90% of everyone I know), has a Facebook. So…Facebook.
  • Sandals or Sneakers?
    Actually, neither. I love my Rockports baby! (So much better than Sneakers!)
  • Pool or beach?
    Pool…I have issues with swimming in salt water…yuck!
  • Vampires or Werewolves?
    Vampires…most definitely. There’s something sexy about a blood sucker lol.
  • Mashed potatoes or French fries?
    If it’s my mom’s mashed potatoes, then I’ll say mashed potatoes. If it’s not, then French fries.
  • Blind or Deaf?
    Hmm. I would have to say being deaf, because I know some sign language (took it in high school and college as my language elective)
  • Potato chips or Popcorn?
    Oh man, you’re really going to make me choose? I usually go for potato chips (usually sour cream & onion yum!), but every so often, I’ll get a craving for buttered popcorn.
  • Cake or Ice cream?
    Can’t I have Ice cream cake?
  • Call or Text?
    Call…sometimes it’s nice to hear the other person’s voice. BUT, texting is so much more convenient.
  • Black or White?
    Nothing is ever really black or white these days, so how about I say grey?
  • Scuba diving or Bungee jumping?
  • All or Nothing?
    Give it your all, because the rewards will be great!
