Random Fact of the Day: Taphephobia is the fear of being buried alive
Hello! I hope everyone’s weekend is going great, even if it is ending very soon! Welcome to this month’s FIRST Feature with Followers post! Feature with Followers is a weekly meme created by JBelkBooks (me) where I will be showcasing one of my AMAZING followers. This gives me an opportunity to really get to know them and give them an opportunity to get their blogs out there in the community. The way I choose my featured follower is Top Secret, so wait for your chance to be featured!
Who am I featuring this week?? Read these hints to MAYBE find out:
- Her pen name is Harley QUINN inspired.
- She is on the road to publish her second novel.
- Her posts include topics such as lifestyle, books, and movies!
ABOUT ANETA: I’m a 26 year old office assistant, who in my spare time writes new adult romance novels. I was born in Poland and moved to Australia when I was around 5 or 6, luckily going back a few times over the last few years to visit family. I have a weird love for anything horror related, Alice in Wonderland, and Harley Quinn from the Batman series (who is also my inspo for my pen name). I have two tattoos (one of which I’m getting removed because I hate the font), and I’m hoping to get another one that will be Alice in Wonderland themed – Curiosity often leads to trouble – across my ribs. I’m a bit of a creative person, often using my spare time to read, write, or draw.
I love Harley Quinn, even if I am more of a Marvel fan. And I think your idea of the AIW themed tattoo is so nice, so I hope you get it! Oh, oh, and here’s props to the drawers/writers/readers!! ❤
Q & A TIME!
ME: When did your blogging journey begin and why did you decide to start?
ANETA: I started blogging July 2015, so I’m still a baby to blogging. Essentially I started so that I could tell others about my journey and process of writing a book, which then turned into reviews and just an amazing place to communicate with other writers and readers. Great place to get book recommendations too!
[I was actually really surprised that she’s only been blogging for about a year because her blog is absolutely beautiful and well put together. Oh and I agree about a good place to get book recs lol.]
ME: Do you prefer purchasing your novels in store or online? At what site or store specifically?
ANETA: Depends how keen I am to read that certain book. I usually end up purchasing Kindle versions on Amazon, that way I get them then and there, and can start devouring the second I get it. I only just recently started a book collection, just got an amazing copy of Alice in Wonderland!
ME: Besides reading and blogging, what else do you do with your spare time?
ANETA: Well, I guess I could say writing. I’ve written a few novels, one of which has been independently published already – Chasing Charli. I’m more excited about my current novel though – Lace and Sin, which is due to be released end of this month (fingers crossed). You can find it on Goodreads here – https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/28235660-lace-and-sin.
[Ooo, awesome possum! One book already published and another one coming? That’s really cool! Hope to read both one day!]
ME: I think Self-Love is important, so what is one thing you really love about yourself? (appearance, personality, etc.)
ANETA: I think I’m too nice sometimes. I find it hard to hate people, or hold grudges. Sometimes it’s a bad thing because I can be a bit of a push-over but I’m working on that, being a bit stronger haha
[This is SOOO me!! I’ve always been a push-over/sensitive, but like you I am trying to work on that. We can do it together! ❤ ]
ME: Since it
is was the 3rd month of the year, what are your top three favorite songs right now?
ANETA: Hmm…top three favourite songs.
I don’t listen to the radio much in the car because I have my own music playing from my USB. But at the moment my top three songs would have to be
– Pillow talk – Originally by Zayn but I prefer the cover by The Vamps.
– Fairytale – By Milkychance (bit of an old one)
– 1985 – Hilltop Hoods ft. Tom Thum (Tom Thum is a beat boxer who’s been at the Adelaide Frindge a few times. He is sooo good. The saxophone and heaps of other sounds you hear in the song is actually done by this guy, it’s amazing!)
[Everyone has been listening to Zayn lately it’s ridiculous, lol. I haven’t heard of the second song,
but the third I have just and the third I have not either (I thought the artist said the 1975, lol). However I am always up for new music & my sister loves the sound of the sax so maybe I’ll pass that song over to her…]
Aneta is very friendly, I have to say. I was planning to post her FWF in March but I never ended up contacting her back in time, so that was my fault. However, thank you so so much Aneta for eventually having the time to chat with me! Like I said before, Aneta’s blog is very, very pro-like (please teach me your skills) and MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT HER TWO NOVELS!!! I just recently nominated her novel, Lace and Sin, for the Kindle Scout campaign, so if you have the time you can, too, HERE! But other than that, feel free to swing by her blog just to browse because her variety of posts make you feel comfortable (at least for me, lol) and I love how simple but sometimes detailed her posts can be.
You can check out all her social media on her blog as well if you are interested!
Thank you, thank you, thank YOU Aneta for taking the time to chat with me and share yourself more with the blogging community. I look forward to seeing your upcoming novel get published and I hope a ton of success continues to come your way!
Thanks for reading and I’ll see you next time…
