Welcome C.C. Wood!
Hello everyone and welcome to my amazing interview with the great C.C. Wood! If you are a fan of C.C.'s then you will love learning about all the crazy shit she's into. Because that's what I do, ask the questions others are afraid to or just think are stupid to ask. If you have followed my blog at all you know how I feel about stupid questions...I LOVE THEM!
EL: Sometimes I laugh at really inappropriate things which has gotten me a lot of bad looks. Is there anything you do that people don’t understand or don’t like about you?
C.C. Wood: Oh, probably everything! I am big on accuracy though......or as my hubby likes to call it, I'm a smartass/know-it-all. I don't mean to do it, but I want to understand the facts about things and will go as far as to look them up because I JUST WANT TO KNOW!
EL: I have read In Love With Lucy and a few of the Bitten books. I like the funny in both and the sexy paranormal elements in the Bitten books. Am I wrong for liking these things?
C.C. Wood: Hell no! Well, maybe, but we've already established you find inappropriate situations and things humorous, so it's ok.
EL: I haven’t read your other works, which there are many. I really want to know about them, especially your upcoming release All or Nothing.
C.C. Wood: All or Nothing isn't like any of my previous books. It's an erotic romance with elements of suspense and the characters have incredibly strong personalities. Jena is independent and feisty- a self-professed ball buster to be exact, and King is almost an antihero and probably one of the most alpha heroes I've written. He screws up big time and can be a jerk, but he's also grown up enough to apologize and try to make things right.
EL: I like to interview myself all the time. I do this when I am in the car or the kids are napping. I find I am a very interesting person. Are there elements about you that you think, “I am so cool! Why has no one seen this about me?”
C.C. Wood: I am incredibly boring. Probably the least interesting person you'll ever meet.
EL: Can you tell me about your current WIP (work in progress)? Do bulldogs play a major roll in the book or, perhaps, a beagle (you know, like Snoopy)?
C.C. Wood: Beagles play such a huge part in my every day life (I have 2) that I rarely put them in my books. Actually, I'm currently working on the last Bitten book, Bite the Bullet. Shannon is going to be so much fun to write!
EL: Why is it whenever I go to the grocery store I inevitably forget one thing on my list? Are you absent-minded too or one of those list-wizards?
C.C. Wood: I'm an obsessive list maker. However, this does me no good. I invariably forget to write something vital on my lists!
EL: What authors (living or dead) would you love to do a ‘dine and dash’ with? What authors (living or dead) would you like to ‘dine and ditch’?
C.C. Wood: Dine and Dash: Tara Sivec
Dine and Ditch: Elizabeth Lynx
EL: I see how you are C.C. I was going to make you cupcakes but maybe I won't now. Perhaps make is too strong a word. Purchase store bought cupcakes. Also, I wasn't really going to give them to you to begin with. I was probably just going to eat them myself. But the point is I was thinking about it! Not anymore!
EL: If a new locally run, community based coffee shop that sells coffee from ethically sourced coffee beans opens and no one comes to buy anything, does a young hipster lose his beard?
C.C. Wood: Who cares. Skinny jeans on men negate any hotness factor added by a beard.
EL: What made you think, “yeah, I want to be a writer! I can write the shit out of a book.”?
C.C. Wood: Um, nothing. I just like to read and I've always liked to write. Although, Kristen Ashley did inspire me to try my hand at self-publishing.
EL: If you could be anything besides a writer, what would it be?
C.C. Wood: A secret agent. Or a stay-at-home mom....wait, I am a SAHM. It's the hardest job EVER, but it's still fun.
EL: Have you met fans? If so, do they cool you down or do you feel like they just push hot air around as they spin, not really cooling down the room?
C.C. Wood: I sleep with 2 fans every night.
EL: Last question. Have you ever met or talked to an author you are a big fan of? If so, have you been like Chris Farley of the Chris Farley Show or more like you try to fist pump them and exclaim you two are the same because you both write so you should always hang out together, whereby they have you removed from the building? I only ask for a friend.
C.C. Wood: I very rarely fangirl, but only because I never leave my house. When I do fangirl, there have been times when the police were called and I had to make a hasty exit.
EL: Thank you C.C. Wood for your sweet and, at times, obsessive thoughts on fans. There are many types of fans out there, wood, metal, and everything in between, it doesn't mean you have to have all of them! Besides that, you give good interview.
A native Texan, C.C. Wood grew up either reading or playing the piano. Years later, she’s still not grown up and doing the same things. Since the voices in her head never shut up, C.C. decided to share their crazy stories and started writing books.
Now that she has a baby girl at home, C.C.’s non-writing time is usually spent cleaning up poopy diapers or feeding the poop machine. Sometimes she teaches piano, cooks, or spends time bugging her hubby and two beagles.
