    I liked this bit very much! 🙂

    “What do you like most about being an author? What about being an author makes you the most crazy?

    ‘First, being called an author is surreal to me. Authors are fantastic people that I have always admired. To be considered an author is an awe-inspiring feeling. The thing I love the very most is that people genuinely seem to like the story I created. What is making me the most crazy about being an author is that I don’t have as much time to write as I would like. I have storylines running through my head constantly, just begging to be written down.'”

    This is my favorite –

    Any thoughts on the ebook explosion or publishing in general?

    Ah, the eBook explosion is a wonderful thing. I have probably read close to 3000 books in my life and the fact that I can store them all on one device is phenomenal. Do I miss reading print books? My honest answer is no. A book that is 600 pages still weighs the same as a book that’s 100 pages on my Kindle. After lugging around heavy books for more than half my life, I love that my Kindle weighs a fraction of one of my Harry Potter books.

    Now, as for the second part of your question, the publishing aspect; the eBook explosion has given authors like me a chance to get their writing into the hands of readers. It is the American Idol experience for writers. We get a chance to market ourselves and see if the public thinks we’re worth “voting” for. The decisions are now left to the readers and not those that are just too busy to give our books a chance.

    Your book sounds really interesting! I’d really like to read it. Congrats on successful publishing and good luck with contest! Hope I win (:

    The Bookish Babes asked some good questions about your favorite childhood book and then this question (see below). As a librarian, I like to hear about writers’ favorite books, books that inspire them.

    TBB: Is there a book that has inspired you the most?
    TK: To pinpoint one book would be next to impossible, but several have inspired me in different ways over the years. So many wonderful books, so many wonderful authors. But if I had to pick one, I would have to say “Star,” by Danielle Steel. I read this book when I was in my teens and the heartbreaking love story spoke to my young heart.

    Really!? I can only pick 1 (one) fav question?

    Well, I have 3 that I really liked. Please let me show all three and later on in my comment I promise I will have made a decisive decision. =)

    1.)Q: When did you start writing? Who, or what, inspired you to write?

    A: I started writing two years ago. I had always thought of writing a book, because I have loved reading since I was a child. The ideas have been there in my head for years, I was always just nervous about putting them on paper. My daughter was my biggest inspiration for Meant to Be. I wanted to give her a book that she could lose herself in.

    2.)Q: How will you handle negative reviews, if you receive any?
    A: I put my heart and soul into Meant to Be, but obviously I know that not everyone is going to like it. Part of me can’t help feeling apologetic, like I’ve done something wrong by putting a book out there they didn’t like. Fortunately, I have always been a “glass half full” kind of person and choose to focus on the positives.

    Both 1) & 2) From Host Christin Mowery http://www.christinmowery.com/interview-with-tiffany-king-author-of-meant-to-be/

    3.) Q: What do you know now that you wish you knew five years ago?
    A: Ha ha. I wish that I would have known that I wanted to be a writer. I so would have changed my major to something in the literature field.

    From Host Molly Hack http://mollyhacker.com/2011/04/meet-tiffany-king/

    I love all 3 questions not only because it was great question, but the answers that went along with them.

    BUT… my favorite is #1… because through it all you went on and persued your dream with the help, inspiration, and motivation of your daughter. Much gratitude for those of us who are lucky enough to have someone to put us back on our path. It also coincides with #3; you always wanted to be a writer but you just needed the push… Extending a thanks from me to your daughter because now I have a new YA Author to look forward to, and the opportunity to delve in their works!

    Apologizing in advance for such a long comment. =D

    I have two favorite questions though. Is it okay?

    First, from MollyHacker.com

    There’s always a story behind every book. What’s the story behind yours?

    I am a sucker for a great romance story, but I didn’t want the typical boy meets girl, everything is great at first, but something happens to test their love, they break up then get back together at the end. I didn’t think I could bring anything new to the table there. When I developed the idea for Meant to Be, I knew the main characters would experience an impenetrable love. Their issue is trying to discover the secret behind the connection they share with each other. That is the key that helps the relationship grow stronger.

    Second, from Christin Mowery

    Q: What is your writing ritual like?
    A: My writing ritual was complete and utter madness, hehe. When I’m writing, I become a different person, almost like the “Tasmanian Devil.” The problem is that as much as I would love to be a full-time writer, I’m just not there yet. Of course, that’s the ultimate goal, but for now, I have work, school, and a family that demands attention too.

    I’d love to read your book and i definitely love the cover too. It reminds of one of my favorite Anime i used to watch. Thanks for this great giveaway!
