Top 10 with Author Georgia Cates {and Give@way}

 Please welcome Author Georgia Cates to the blog today as she answers my Top 10. And if you stick around to the end of the post there may possibly be a giveaway.
  1.     fav song/singer? This may seem a little weird because my favorite song isn’t by my favorite singer. Favorite song is: Let It Go by Fauxliage Favorite Singer: Justin Furstenfeld from Blue October. So awesome! 
2.     fav season? Spring. Everything is new and anything seems possible.
3.     worst vacation? Gatlinburg, TN. I hate mountains, but I didn’t know that until I went. Definitely not the place for newlyweds on their honeymoon. Everything shuts down at 8p.m.
4.     guilty pleasure? Gigi’s Cupcakes. They’re beautiful and delicious. 
5.     fav book and/or author? Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter. 
6.     one item you cannot live without? Coffee. I mean it. Really.
7.     hobby? I assume you mean besides reading. I enjoy photo manipulation and photoshopping. I do my own book covers so I enjoy exploring what I can do for my next book cover.
8.     fav movie/actor/actress? Again...My favorite movie doesn’t include my favorite actor or actress.
Favorite Movie: The Notebook Favorite Actor: Adam Sandler
Favorite Actress: Jennifer Aniston
9.     pet peeve? Slurping and smacking. No doubt about it.
10.      who would you like to meet? (dead or alive?) God...One day.
 I had a horrible trip to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge once...ended up spending the night in the ER with our young daughter who wouldn't stop vomiting. It was lovely! And we also love GiGi's, well I use to. But I think I ate too many and burned myself out on them. :P

  1. Thanks for the giveaway and interview Mandy!! =)

  2. I'm so happy about this opportunity to be on Twimom 101. I loved your Top 10 Questions because it's rare to answer answers about myself as a person instead of a writer. Loved that.

    I bought Gigi's cupcakes about 6 times in the last few weeks. (They recently opened one where I live.) I'm bordering on the burn out phase myself. It seemed so much more special when I could only get them on a shopping trip to Memphis and Collierville. (Love Carriage Crossing.)

    Fun Fact-
    Although the towns are nothing alike, the name of Jessie's hometown, Collinsville, in Going Under was adapted from Collierville. I never mention it in the book, but Going Under is based in Tennessee.

    1. I love Carriage Crossing...and even though its not that far, it is kinda far. just going from Cordova to Germantown can be a chore. so needless to say I don't get to Collierville very much.

  3. Correction: I loved your Top 10 Questions because it's rare to answer QUESTIONS about myself as a person instead of a writer.

    So sorry about that. :)
