Today we have the Golden Eagle here for a great interview!
I look for strong protagonists, believable antagonists, a well-built and detailed world, and, perhaps above all, a plot delivers plenty of twists and turns.
Fruit, Bach’s Greatest Hits, and the dictionary. The last because then I can better create my own stories in my head. ;)
Reading other blogs. I didn’t know much about the blogging community (other than it existed) before I visited a few, lurked, and started commenting occasionally. After a few months of that I decided to start my own blog.
I’ve been dancing for seven years. There was a break of a couple years, but I got back into it in 2010 and am currently en pointe.
Blog about what you want to blog about, whether that’s books, writing, games, personal projects, whatever. We’re all unique, and that’s reflected in each person’s blogging style.
Flight. :) I chose The Golden Eagle as my pseudonym partly because eagles are such amazing fliers.
Not quite. Though Asian characters and authors are growing in numbers, they’re still few and far between compared to white characters/authors.
Yes. The more varied YA is, the more perspectives and opinions, the better, I think.
My favorite character is Ai Ling from Silver Phoenix and Fury of the Phoenix by Cindy Pon. She has weaknesses and faults, but like any good character, those are counterbalanced with positive traits; in her case, a determination to see things through.
Would you say you appreciate Asian inspired literature more, less, or the same as other literature?
I treat Asian inspired literature the same as other literature. If it’s written well, I’ll enjoy it, but if not then I’ll dislike it as much as any other fiction.
Thanks for stopping by!
