Hello and welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Impostor by Jill Hathaway. I enjoyed Slide a lot and I'm thrilled to be able to share with you a very funny (and I suspect very truthful) post by Jill.
A Day In the Writing Life
6:12 a.m. Open one eye. Close it again.
6:37 a.m. Toddler jumps on head.
6:42 a.m. Make everyone a healthy breakfast of toaster waffles and chocolate milk.
6:55 a.m. Surf Pinterest while eating.
7:38 a.m. Watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with the kids. Think about plot where Minnie walks into the clubhouse to find Donald and Mickey lying in pieces on the floor. Decide you’ll probably never write for children’s television.
9:24 a.m. Surf Pinterest some more while waiting for husband to wake up. Realize there are nearly 1,000 pins on Fashion Inspiration board and only about 6 on Writing Craft board.
11:14 a.m. Husband finally wakes up and takes shower. Now it’s time to go somewhere I can write without children grinding banana bits into my keyboard.
11:56 a.m. Panera is pretty crowded with people actually eating, not working. Decide to get a red velvet cookie and surf Pinterest until the place clears out.
2:31 p.m. Panera has cleared out enough that I find a seat next to a power outlet. Plug in computer. Pinterest has drained my laptop of almost all juice. Open Word document. Pop in headphones.
2:34 p.m. Check Pinterest while working through plot problem.
4:27 p.m. Crap. It’s almost dinnertime. I should call the hubs to see if I need to bring anything home for dinner.
5:17 p.m. Swing by pizza place to grab a double deckeroni before heading home.
5:49 p.m. Children pounce on me when I walk in the door. Well, let’s face it. They pounce on the pizza. Hubs asks how the writing went. I vent about my plot problem. He comes up with a solution in about two seconds.
6:15 p.m. Cuddle kiddos on sofa while watching Dora. Daydream about scenario where Dora and Boots switch bodies. Fantasize about writing for children's television…

What if a killer took control of you?
Vee Bell’s gift (or curse) of “sliding”—slipping into the mind of another person and experiencing life, briefly, through his or her eyes—has been somewhat under control since she unwillingly witnessed the horrific deaths of her classmates six months ago.
But just as things are getting back to normal, Vee has a very bizarre experience: she loses consciousness and finds herself in a deserted area, at the edge of a cliff, with the broken body of the boy who took advantage of her on the rocks below.
As Vee finds herself in stranger and stranger situations with no memory of getting there, she begins to suspect that someone she knows has the ability to slide—and that this “slider” is using Vee to exact revenge on his or her enemies.
Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
