Book Blogger Interview: Konstanz Silverbow

Today I'd like to welcome Konstanz Silverbow. She's the author of the bookish blog No Thought Too Small.

1. Please introduce yourself and tell us anything you’d like folks to know about you.
My name is Konstanz Silverbow. I collect dragons and swords! I write fantasy and am the proud Creator of magical worlds, fictional creatures, ideal super heroes and sarcasm since 2007!
2. Coffee or tea or water? Espresso, drip, instant, or french press? Bag or looseleaf? Bottled, filtered, tap or rainwater?
Water. I don't like Coffee or tea.  Rainwater is the best!

3. Why do you blog about books?
I love to read, I love to write. I was told to get my foot in the door, introduce myself to others if I wanted to make it in the writing world. So I went to conferences and started a blog. I love every bit of it!

4. What inspired the design of your site?
I am actually planning on doing a makeover soon. It is time I make my blog look a little more like me. It will be all dragons and well, that's because I love dragons! And it fits because I write fantasy. :)
5. What is your favorite thing about book blogging?
Honestly, the authors! I love getting to meet new authors, and help them get their books out there. Helping readers find books!

6. How do you decide which books to read?
A lot of things. The cover, the blurb, the author. I read Fantasy mostly but I will read other genres if I think I will like them just by what is on the cover and the synopsis.

7. How much time do you invest reading and blogging?
If I'm not writing, I'm reading. If I'm not reading, I'm blogging! I love all of it, so pretty much all of my time. :) Aside from when I actually have to go to work. Cause book blogging doesn't exactly pay the bills.

8. Care to comment on the Alice Hoffman quote: Books may well be the only magic?
Well books are definitely magic. But I did an interview and asked the author "What is your definition of magic?" and her answer has stuck with me. "Magic is taking something ordinary and making it extraordinary."

9. On a scale of 1-10, how eccentric are you? 10 being VERY…
Hmmm . . .Maybe a 7? Depends I suppose. :)

10. Is there anything else we need to know about you?
Well if you care to know, I also play the violin, make jewelry, and just finished my third book (my fourth is almost done!) and I am hoping to be published in 2014.

Only Half Alive by Konstanz Silverbow

The World's darkest creature, will be their brightest hope!

While darkness haunts her, she craves the light. Christina is a demon, but she doesn't want to be. She is
willing to sacrifice everything to change it. Only one person stands in her way, and he will stop at nothing to keep her the way she is.

The greatest battle of light vs dark threatens every living creature, a battle that could destroy all. And the demon in love will only have one chance to save everyone.

Missing Royal by Konstanz Silverbow

One princess destroyed the world, one princess must save it.

When she was little she wished to be a princess. Now as a teenager she just wishes she fit in. But Shanice doesn't feel like she belongs, she never has.

When her parents tell her she is the last known princess from another world, it all makes sense. A world full of magic in place of technology. One where she is more than just royalty, she is their last chance to stop the one who is bent on destroying it. Mendina.

But she can't do it alone, first she must find the other missing royals. In her quest, Shanice will be forced to choose between the course prophecy set for her, and the one that leads to the man her heart belongs to.
