Now that I have submitted my book, I need a distraction. Time to hop back on the blog and make up for an entire missed month!!!

I am very thankful for being tagged for This is My Truth Now  I apologize it has taken me so long to complete it. Thank you Angie!

The Rules

  1. Create your own new post and call it “Tag: This-Is-My-Truth-Now” and be sure to include in your tags the words — without quotes — “ThisIsMyTruthNow Tag”
  2. Include these rules when you copy/paste into your own post.
  3. Be sure to thank the person that tagged you and include their responses at the bottom of your post, so someone can get to know them too. Tell everyone something interesting about the person who tagged you.
  4. Include a link to my original post mentioning this blog so we can see how many people choose to play along. Link to cut/paste is:  BrizzleLass
  5. Choose 12 bloggers to tag and include a link to their latest post, so others can check them out and meet new people.
  6. Answer all 12 questions in The Challenge Questions section, but replace the 12th question with your own new one around telling the truth or revealing something interesting about yourself — you can leave the existing if you can’t think of anything.
  7. Be sure to copy/paste the “Truth or Dare” section at the end of this post. It’s important to the challenge — so you better carefully read it!
  8. If you’ve haven’t been tagged, but you want to play along, you can totally jump on in and post responses to the tag on your blog.

The Challenge Questions

  1. You’re on your way to a birthday dinner that your friends have thrown for you. When you arrive, your favorite author is having dinner by himself or herself and asks you to sit with them, before you even see your friends or they see you. You have two choices: (1) You can sit with the author, but can’t tell your friends that you’ve abandoned them for three hours, or (2) Meet your friends and lose the only chance you’ll ever have to talk with the author. Pick one or the other — no exceptions or communication with your friends to tell them about the author — and explain why.
    • I actually find this situation unrealistic and will break the rules for the better good of all. It’s not fair that my favorite author should not join me for my birthday celebration. Don’t put me in a box. I don’t fit.
  2. You’ve got an opportunity to spend a few hours alone “in your bedroom” with a character from any book you’ve previously read. The character tells you that (s)he would like to lock the door and spend some alone time with you. What book and character is it, and do you decide to enter the room and lock the door, or tell them you aren’t interested?
    • Jon Snow from A Song of Fire and Ice. And the answer is no. I would not lock the door with him because I am a happily married woman. Instead I would make him use my elliptical while he said “Indubitably” and I laughed hysterically.
  3. If you could turn any male character from one of your favorite books into a female character (or change a female into a male) in the book or book series, which one and why?
    • Every Dean Kuntz book, male leads into female leads. The genre needs it.
  4. What blogger currently on your follower’s list (meaning they follow you too) do you admire the most and why?
    • JULES!!! Oh this woman makes me laugh and cry and has the strength of every single mama of such a beautiful and smart young woman. She is also the only person to have taken a burlesque class and wrote to tell the tale
  5. If you could change any one decision your favorite book character made, what would it be and why?
    • Nick Dunne would have really killed that crazy bish… LAWD (Gone Girl)
  6. If you could pick 1 character from a book and 1 character from a TV show you watch (that is NOT based on a book) to be in a relationship together, who would you choose, and why?
    • Ned Stark and Sean Bean’s character in Pixels hahahahaha
  7. It’s your last day on Earth. As you are about to cross that final finish line, a mysterious shadow appears, giving you a choice: (1) You can go move forward to whatever comes next for you [based on your own spiritual or religious beliefs], or (2) you can become a character in a book series and exist permanently doing whatever that author chooses to do with you in the book. Which do you choose, and if it’s option 2, reveal the book and author.
    • Option 1 unless said shadow gave me a chance to read more books to find a happy ending.
  8. If you could steal a pet from someone in any book you’ve read, but had to replace it with a friend’s pet (meaning they wouldn’t ever see their pet again), would you do it?  If so, explain the who and why.
    • I would replace my dad’s tiny whimpy dog with the tiger from The Walking Dead. (Yes this was a (graphic) novel first)
  9. If you could turn someone from your real life into a character from a book, who from your life, who in the book and why?
    • My sister would easily be Emma Bloom in Miss Peregrine’s… She’s a fireball, that girl lol
  10. Post a picture of the cover of a book you read in 2000 and the book you are currently reading now. (Note: if you weren’t alive in 2000, pick the first book you ever read and tell everyone what year it was from).

  1. Your favorite character (under 18) needs a place to stay for 3 months and asks you if (s)he could stay in your spare room (yes, you have one for the sake of this question). Who is it and what is the reason (s)he needs to stay with you?

  1. You’re on your way to a birthday dinner that your friends have thrown for you.

Pick one or the other — no exceptions or communication with your friends to tell them about the author — and explain why.
    • Sit with the author! My friends would totally understand.
  2. You’ve got an opportunity to spend a few hours alone “in your bedroom” with a character from any book you’ve previously read. The character tells you that (s)he would like to lock the door and spend some alone time with you. What book and character is it, and do you decide to enter the room and lock the door, or tell them you aren’t interested?
    • Trevor Jackson from Mackenzie’s Distraction  Lock the door!
  3. If you could turn any male character from one of your favorite books into a female character (or change a female into a male) in the book or book series, which one and why?
    • That is a tough one. I can’t think of one I’d switch, but I think I would have liked the book “Follow the River” better if it would have been written by a woman. It was an interesting book, but the main character didn’t have the thoughts that she would’ve had if she would’ve been written by a female.
  4. What blogger currently on your follower’s list (meaning they follow you too) do you admire the most and why?
    • I really don’t like this question, I like all my followers and don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. But if I had to pick just one, I’d have to say Shanannigans at Reads & Reels. I think we would be great friends if we ever met in person. I love reading her reviews. Amy and Chelsea at novelgossip and thesuspenseisthrillingme are two others that I really enjoy reading their reviews.
  5. If you could change any one decision your favorite book character made, what would it be and why?
    • Tris would not have protected her brother in Allegiant.
  6. If you could pick 1 character from a book and 1 character from a TV show you watch (that is NOT based on a book) to be in a relationship together, who would you choose, and why?
    • I hardly ever watch TV shows, so I’m really not sure.
  7. It’s your last day on Earth. As you are about to cross that final finish line, a mysterious shadow appears, giving you a choice: (1) You can go move forward to whatever comes next for you [based on your own spiritual or religious beliefs], or (2) you can become a character in a book series and exist permanently doing whatever that author chooses to do with you in the book. Which do you choose, and if it’s option 2, reveal the book and author.
    • I’m going with option 1. But if I went with option 2, I’d be in the Lux series by Jennifer Armentrout!
  8. If you could steal a pet from someone in any book you’ve read, but had to replace it with a friend’s pet (meaning they wouldn’t ever see their pet again), would you do it?  If so, explain the who and why.
    • No, that would just be too cruel.
  9. If you could turn someone from your real life into a character from a book, who from your life, who in the book and why?
    • My daughter Jourdan would be Mackenzie from Mackenzie’s Distraction. Why? Because my daughter did make changes in her life, like Mackenzie. Now we are waiting for her to find her Trevor. LOL  Or my son, Jacob would be Zayne from Roadside. Because my son reminds me of Zayne due to his karate skills and the fact that he wants to be a lawyer.
  10. Post a picture of the cover of a book you read in 2000 and the book you are currently reading now. (Note: if you weren’t alive in 2000, pick the first book you ever read and tell everyone what year it was from).

  1. Which of the 365 Daily Challenge posts most describes you? To see them all, you can go here. (Note: This is the question each person can change when they tag their own nominees)
    • Purple; for so many reasons. I’ve loved the color purple since I was so young that I’d couldn’t say the word properly. I called it something like “purpde” according to my family. It is my go to color for clothes, flowers, almost anything. I just love it. It’s beautiful and makes me smile.

  1. Love having Jon Snow say that word while on the elliptical! And somewhere in my garage is a pop-up book of Stephen King’s The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. I’m crossing my fingers that I find it and didn’t give it away by accident –
    hubby donated the wrong box of books to the library that had autographed books from Frank McCourt, Mitch Albom, Jane Smiley, and more. It still makes me sad thinking about it.

  2. Lol. Love your answers.
    I couldn’t think of a good one to switch genders, but you are so right.
    And yeah, Nick definitely should’ve gotten rid of that psycho b****!
    Hope you enjoy Roadside. 😊
    Thanks for playing along. I enjoyed reading your answers.
