My First Interview, July 2022 Featured Guest at timewithtannia.com
Welcome back! In my last blog, I talked about my amazing visit to the Tooth Fairy’s Castle. Today I will share the highlights of my first interview at timewithtannia.com (TWT). I was the July Featured Guest. It is the same as the Guest of Honor. We talked about my debut book, "Joey trifft die Zahnfee." Wow, I sound like a professional author! At the bottom of the post, you will find the link to my interview.
Sorry but this blog is a little longer than the others. Are you curious about it? Then grab your favorite snack and enjoy the reading!
TWT: Journaling is very important for authors. When is your favorite time to write?
Joey Paco: Hmm, it depends. When we are traveling, during my quiet time. I look at my pictures to help me remember the events of the day, and then I write them in my journal. I also write about curious things that happen at home.
TWT: Quiet times are also important. Good to know you have one, too. When do you have your quiet times?
Joey Paco: It depends on the day. During the school days, my quiet time is after I come back from school. It helps me to relax and be alert. Then I can do my homework. During our family trips, I am always looking around, taking pictures, and going on small adventures. When we return, I need my quiet time to write it down before I forget it.
TWT: Now, let us talk about your book, "Joey trifft die Zahnfee." Who chose the title?
Joey Paco: It was difficult to think of a unique title. My mom and I chose “Joey trifft die Zahnfee,” because it was short and easy to remember. You must be clever to make your book appealing to buyers. Wow, that is a big word! Appealing means interesting
TWT: There are many Tooth Fairy books on the market. What makes yours unique?
Joey Paco: A very good question. I am proud to say that there are three reasons why kids and parents should buy my book.
First, my Tooth Fairy is handicapped and moves around with her “amapraconvelous, flying
wheelchair.” “Amapraconvelous” stands for amazing, practical, convenient, and marvelous. (wink)
Second, she has beautiful dark skin and black hair like my mom. Her hair has some colorful highlights.
Third, I am an eight-year-old late teether. I kept it a secret until last week when some of my friends were talking about the Tooth Fairy and the gifts she left them.
TWT: Where can our readers buy your book?
Joey Paco: In all online stores. Order it at your favorite local bookstore. Or directly from the publisher, Books on Demand (BoD).
TWT: Do you want to say something to other young authors like you?
Joey Paco: Yes, journaling is important to remember your adventures. Ask your parents to help you write a good story. Don't be discouraged. Like my mom says: "Remain focused and don't give up your dreams."
Now it is time to go and play!
In the next blog, I will tell you more about the Tooth Fairy.
Remember to brush your teeth and keep them shiny for the Tooth Fairy.
