where normal is abnormal

Ask me anything   The random ramblings of a young adult fiction author and HUGE fan of all things ZOMBIE, Nerdfighter awesomeness, paranormal or unusual, movie, music or book related. I may have an obsession with Foo Fighters, Jack Johnson, Lonley Island, Beastie Boys, Zombieland, Shaun of the Dead, Walking Dead and tattoos. Visit www.jennaumann.net if you're looking to be entertained.

    I’m not going to lie. I still love the feel of a brand new, physical book in my hands. The thicker the better. I love the smell, which ranks up there with the ocean breeze and roses. I love holding a big old Stephen King book that weighs more than our family dog. I even love the sound the pages make when they turn—unless someone else is reading, then it is just annoying. I love how different books look together on a shelf. I love to peruse through the covers, whether at home or at a book store. I love collecting the works of my favorite authors and seeing them grouped together on a shelf. But I also live digital books. I love how I can have a book magically delivered to me in seconds when I need something new to read. I love that I can read at night and not keep my husband awake with a lamp by the bed or trying to use a clip on light under the covers. I love having something small enough to fit in my purse that weighs very little and still carries an entire library. I love that I can outline passages that grab my attention. I love not having books fall out at me when I open any given closet in my house because I already own too many (true story).
So which do I prefer? Neither. I love them both.
As a writer, I’m glad I have the option to offer both printed and digital versions of my books, because as a reader i know—you never know what form of reading you will be in the mood for next.

    In living out my dream of being a published author, I refuse to sit behind a traditional desk. I worked crappy office jobs for too many years and it did terrible things to my back. My solution was to purchase an inexpensive chair from IKEA and it has proved to be AMAZING. I am relaxed and comfortable (sometimes too much, however; I have fallen asleep a couple of times when over-tired but probably could do that at a traditional desk as well). To anyone pursuing a career in writing, this is a method I would highly recommend!
