The New Diary Blog Tour (Kick-Off and Author Interview)
Well, guys, today we’re doing something a little different … a blog tour! That’s right, I’m hosting the blog tour of my dear friend, Hanna Kraft! It’s a small blog tour (in length and participants), but Hanna and I hope you’ll enjoy it. 🙂
~ About the Book ~
One Summer Sunday in 1930, Carol Ayers decides to keep a diary. She records many life changes over the days, weeks, and months. Can Carol and her family accept, and even like the changes, and at the same time continue their traditions?
The New Diary, a fictional account, contains actual excerpts from the real diary of Carol Ayers, the author’s great-grandmother.
~ About the Author ~
Hanna Kraft, an introverted Christian Homeschooler, is very grateful to have the opportunity to learn at home, and desires to spread her love of Jesus to others. Every day she sees new ways the Lord has provided, blessed, and cared for her and those she cares for. Hanna enjoys writing much more than any of her five siblings, and has enjoyed it for several years. When she realized her ability to publish The New Diary, she decided to pursue writing as a bit more than a mere hobby.
Besides reading and writing, Hanna lives in the country with her family, and enjoys playing the banjo, swimming, listening to much Southern Gospel music, and watching college basketball.
~ The Interview ~
Why did you decide to write your great-grandmother’s story over just some random fiction tale?
When you started writing The New Diary, did you ever think you’d share it with anyone other than family and close friends?
Do you have a favorite character?
If you could tell people one thing about The New Diary to interest them in reading it, what would that be?
What was the hardest thing about writing The New Diary?
About how much of The New Diary is fiction and how much is nonfiction?
Do you see writing as a hobby … or could it become a future career?
Do you snack while writing? Do you listen to music?
Is there a special place you go to write?
Not really. I like writing on my bed, but I can easily write anywhere.
What’s your next writing project going to be?
The next big, publish-able project will be Book #2 of The Heritage Diaries, which I plan on starting this Summer. (So excited!!)
