Promote Your Book Bloghop: Meet & Greet

Alrighty, here we go.  It's time for the meet and greet of the promote your book blog hop. 

What is your favourite animal?
A hippo

Where have you travelled to (outside of your country), and what's been your favourite destination?
Singapore, Russia, France, Brunei, Thailand.  Thailand was the most amazing.  The water was warm and beautiful.  The beaches were gorgeous.  I got to ride an elephant.  I'd love to visit again someday.

How many siblings do you have?
1 sister but we haven't spoken in years.

Are you a lefty or a righty?

Since picking a favourite book is nearly impossible, who is your favourite author or which one has had the most influence on you in your writing career?
Also not an easy question, but Jane Austen and John Steinbeck are two of my greatest influences.  Victor Hugo is another huge favourite.  And of course who could forget JK Rowling.

That was fun. Now that we’ve gotten to know each other, let’s get to the writerly part of the meet and greet.   Here's my author bio. 

Jessica Peterson has the job of her dreams working as a stay-at-home mom.  When she’s not chasing around her full-of-life toddlers, she’s attempting to squeeze time out of the day for her writing.  A big fan of fresh fruits and veggies, chocolate, and travelling, especially to beautiful beach destinations, she can always find something to enjoy.  With a past filled with passion and heartbreak brought on from the tough lessons of love and love lost, she now pours herself into writing love stories.
Can't wait to read everyone else's.  Here are the other participants:
Just a quick note to those who did sign up... If you have decided not to participate please let me know because if it turns out I'm in this on my own, it will be cancelled.  Otherwise, looking forward to reading what you all have to say.
Happy writing. :)




  1. I realize I don't know you, but I'm nominating you anyway for the Liebster Award. Check out my blog for details:

  2. I love reading your blog posts and have given you the Liebster Award. Please stop by and pick it up when you have a chance.

  3. Thank you MV and Dawn Marie. I will look into this. :)

  4. Thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog. It was really fun doing the A to Z Challenge, but now I am drowning under a backlog of work. (Work puts such a crimp in your day.) I'm totally impressed that you've starting right in on another "Blog Hop." I'm just getting acquainted with the blogging community, so I am unfamiliar with all the terminology and writing challenges. Looking forward to returning and reading some of your earlier posts.

    1. Hi Josna, thanks for visiting. I hope you do come back. :) I consider myself still fairly new to the world of blogging as well, but you learn as you go. :)

  5. I didn't realize I'd signed up for this. I guess I better get writing. Oh, and, call your sister. Life's too short to go for years without speaking. You'll feel better that you did.

    1. I've scheduled my post to go live at six tomorrow morning, while I'm sound asleep, but you can get up to read it if you want. :)
