Author Interview: Liz De Jesus

Where the Story is Told

First frost coverWelcome to my latest author interview with Liz De Jesus, author of First Frost – book one in the First Frost Series. Liz and I spent the past couple months working on a book inspired candle, The Frost Apple, through my author program The Writer’s Block. It was such a treat to read the first book in the series and get to know the main character Bianca and the secrets she learns about her family tree.

Hi Liz! Thank you so much for taking the time to do an interview with me. First, I always like to ask how writers get started. When did you start writing and how did you know you wanted to be author?

I started writing when I was very young. I was always interested in books and I also had the great example of my mother who is also a writer. I started journaling and that…

Faerie Con East …the saga continues

It’s taken me a whole week to recover from  the magic and wonder that was Faerie Con East. And I’ve looked at the application they handed me on Sunday over and over again. I keep debating the pros and cons of the event. On the one hand I had fun. On the second hand it was expensive just to go. LOL But I figured if I saved for it now, I’ll be able to go next year and instead of staying in a hotel I could just drive back and forth, it’s only an hour drive. So that’ll help with some of the costs. Anyway, I went ahead and filled out the application. I decided that Faerie Con East was going to be one of the 5 big conventions I go to next year.

I did set up a FundRazr account so if you would like to help with a small donation, it would be greatly appreciated. And there are some perks! Check them out. 😀


All shares will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you so much!

Faerie Con East

So for the past 6 months or so (although it feels a lot longer than that) my friend Elizabeth Kolodziej and I have been getting ready for Faerie Con East. I have been wanting to go for YEARS and I finally got the chance to be a vendor. It was expensive, between the table space and the hotel it definitely burned a hole into my budget (which is why I’m going to take a break from conventions and other events for a while) but it was definitely worth the trip. Got a chance to make some amazing friends and got a little bit of magic added to my weekend. So many beautiful costumes and incredibly talented people were there.

I also brought my dearest friend Kristen (aka Megumi Kitten) with me and she did some incredible artwork while we were there.

Got a chance to listen to a little music at the masquerade ball (yes! I got to go to a ball!). Didn’t stay long because Elizabeth and I were so TIRED. But at least we saw everyone dressed up and listened to SJ Tucker (who was amazing by the way). Saw a small parade of Green Men (they gave me an acorn). Green for Health and Green for Wealth. Definitely hanging on to my acorn and taking it with me everywhere.

Sold a bunch of copies of First Frost and Glass Frost which was awesome. 🙂 But I am so happy to be home. I missed my husband, my kids and my house. I don’t sleep well in hotels or strange places. Basically, the only place I can fall asleep is my own bed. LOL

Anyway here are some pictures I took at Faerie Con East!
