Guest Post: Tammara Webber—Author Interview! + eBook Giveaway

I'm sure that many of you have already heard of the novel Easy by Tammara Webber. It's been getting tons of hype very quickly and many great reviews. In fact, it is already going up the charts and last week it was a New York Times best-seller at #29! Not sure this week, I haven't checked :p


ABOUT THE BOOK:

When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup. After two weeks in shock, she wakes up to her new reality: she’s single, attending a state university instead of a music conservatory, ignored by her former circle of friends, stalked by her ex’s frat brother, and failing a class for the first time in her life.
Her econ professor gives her an email address for Landon, the class tutor, who shows her that she’s still the same intelligent girl she’s always been. As Jacqueline becomes interested in more from her tutor than a better grade, his teasing responses make the feeling seem mutual. There’s just one problem—their only interactions are through email.
Meanwhile, a guy in her econ class proves his worth the first night she meets him. Nothing like her popular ex or her brainy tutor, Lucas sits on the back row, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. At a downtown club, he disappears after several dances that leave her on fire. When he asks if he can sketch her, alone in her room, she agrees—hoping for more.
Then Jacqueline discovers a withheld connection between her supportive tutor and her seductive classmate, her ex comes back into the picture, and her stalker escalates his attention by spreading rumors that they’ve hooked up. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.

Buy the Book: Amazon


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

EASY is my new contemporary stand-alone novel. BETWEEN THE LINES is my contemporary series. Easy, Between the Lines (BTL #1), Where You Are (BTL #2), and Good For You (BTL #3) and are available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and the iBookstore in digital form, and from Amazon in paperback.
Reading was one of my first and earliest loves, and writing soon followed. My first book was about a lost bear, but my lack of ability as an illustrator convinced me to abandon that effort and concentrate on passing 3rd grade. I wrote sad romantic poetry in high school and penned my first half-novel when I was 19, for which I did lots of research on Vikings (the marauders, not the football team), and which was accidentally destroyed when I stuffed it into the shredder at work.
Addictions: coffee and Cherry Garcia frozen yogurt. Also baby carrots, but not with coffee or frozen yogurt, because that would be disgusting. I love shopping for earrings, because they always fit - even if I occasionally "forget" to work out. I'm a hopeful romantic who adores novels with happy endings, because there are enough sad endings in real life.

I had the pleasure to interview the lovely Tammara Webber and ask her a few questions about her newest novel. Check out what she said!


INTERVIEW:


E: Hello Tammara and thanks for stopping by Crazed Bookie; it's
great to have you here. Easy has been getting some considerable
attention very quickly, so congratulations. The story is great and I
absolutely loved it. And thanks for agreeing to answer a few
questions!

1. How did you write EASY? Was it an idea that popped in your head one day, or did you have it brewing in your mind for some time?

T: It’s been brewing for a very long time, in one form or another. It really began to take shape about a year ago, and I waited for the right time to write it.


E: 2. As we know, Jacqueline is struggling some after the break-up with her three year boyfriend. Without going into too much detail, how would you say she dealt with her heartbreak?

T: I actually think she dealt with it well. It’s natural and normal to shut down when a relationship ends. What matters is the getting back up, and becoming aware of how and why it ended, and the realization that it’s usually best to move forward, rather than sliding back into the same relationship – especially if trust is broken.


E: 3. I loved Lucas, but it's very hard to ask a question without getting to spoilers about him, so instead I'm getting to another topic: The Lawnmower. I just had to ask! LOL. Those of you who have read it will know. Did you make that up? Where did you come up with this?

T: I did not make it up. My daughter and I took a self-defense class, and that was one of the *moves* we were taught, and what it was called.


E: 4. Describe EASY in three words.

T: I think I’d feel more comfortable if readers or reviewers answered this one.


E: 5. If you could have dinner with any author (dead or alive) who would it be and why?

T: I got this question recently from someone else, and I can’t remember what I answered! I guess it’s okay for the answer to vary. Today, I’d choose Oscar Wilde. I’m in the mood for someone whose wit and wisdom emanated from deep sadness. I went through a phase in my twenties of reading classic literature, and once I found him, I tore through everything he wrote. He was utterly brilliant. He would probably have me laughing over dinner, and hopefully I’d be privy to one or two of his sharp, hilarious observations on human nature over coffee, after.


E: Thanks again for stopping by Tammara, it was great to have
you and I can't wait to read more of your work in the future! :)

So that's a wrap! Personally, I loved the book and thought it was amazing! Check out my review here. Hope you enjoyed the interview as much as I did :)
And because I love pleasing my readers and am just awesome, I'm going to be giving away an eBook copy of EASY! Isn't that fun? You can choose Kindle or Nook. Good Luck!
