Author Takeover & Giveaway Alert - "Perfectly Hopeless" by Holly Hood

Today we let Holly Hood takeover Book Lovin' Mamas.  
Let's get to know Holly a little more and also find out how she came up with her latest release "Perfectly Hopeless".  If you have never heard of Holly Hood or even picked up one of her books to read, you're definitely missing out.  


When you know me, you know that I am sarcastic. And I think that comes across in my writing a lot. I also over think everything in life, and writing has let me do that through different situations.
Perfectly Hopeless is a bit different then most of the books I have written. There is no paranormal in this story. It wasn’t even a story I planned on writing. Sure, I had been toying with the plot for sometime, but I really figured it would end up in some sort of paranormal story.
My goal in writing this book was to show beauty in something that some might think is not. I wanted a story that evoked a lot of emotion. And as I wrote I really felt that. I really loved Henri and Maven in this book.
I was thinking about this book the other day and I came to the conclusion that readers will either love it or hate it. And I like that. I don’t want to give away the story, but I will say it was a lot of fun to write and difficult at times, but in the end I truly do love the book and hope everyone loves it even if they hated it. (that probably makes no sense)
As for who I am, I’ve never been great with talking about myself, so I came up with 20 facts about me. So here goes.
·    I cannot go a day without listening to music.
·    I have a major fear of spiders, or anything small and crawling, but spiders take the cake.
·    My favorite color used to be green, now it’s purple.
·    I could live off of French bread.
·    I have three kids. Zoey, Zaynah, and Rlee.
·    I once lived in Clarksville, Tennessee and I loved it.
·    My dream vacation would be Alaska or Hawaii.
·    I hate fashion trends.
·    I love Dancing with the stars (Go Maks!)
·    Every morning I watch The Today show.
·    When I write a book, I make it a point to name my characters something unique.
·    I don’t like the snow.
·    My favorite holiday is Easter.
·    When I was a kid I wanted to be a lawyer before I discovered writing.
·    My favorite movie is My girl.
·    One day I hope to own an English Mastiff.
·    I have never broken a bone or had stitches in my life. (Crosses fingers it stays that way)
·    I am 6’1. (Super tall for a girl)
·    I was born on Father’s day.
·    My favorite band right now is The Used. (Song: Bird and the worm)
Thanks for taking the time to get to know me!

Giveaway Alert

Here's your chance to read Holly's newest book "Perfectly Hopeless" that came out January 28th, 2012.  She's giving away Ebooks (Kindle or Nook format) to 4 Lucky Winners.  =) 


Description:

Every summer, when the willow trees blow lazily in the breeze Maven Wilder goes back to Portwood. At one time she was sure she knew what love was. She thought she was in it, but not anymore.
Maven never expected to meet Henri Levitt that summer. A brown-haired, brown-eyed guy that keeps to himself and is always working odd jobs, Henri lives with relatives and comes off a bit depressed. He’s happy to stay busy, and if that means little social life, that is fine by him.
Nobody in Portwood thinks twice about Henri. And it’s only after an embarrassing accident happens at The Yogurt Hut that Maven even notices him. After meeting Henri that day, Maven’s life changes in ways she never counted on.
Spending the summer with Henri shows Maven there is more to life than heartbreak, and that some people do change you for the better. Maven learns a lot over the summer. And after meeting Henri, her life will never be the same.
