The Flowerpot Witch blog tour is nearly here and it’s all thanks to the newest member of the team, Rachel Gilbey.
Welcome Rachel to my blog!
Thanks Wendy, it’s my pleasure to be featured on your blog.
Your services were recommended to me online as the lady to create a perfect blog tour but how do you describe yourself?
I would describe myself as incredibly fortunate to be in a position to be running my own business and doing a job that I am thoroughly enjoying. I am organised, a huge lover of books and just want to help authors get their book out and seen to the wider world.
How did you come to be supporting writers?
Three years ago I started up a book blog, and then from there started taking part in blog tours. From that I realised it was something that I had the skills to do, but it took a year of procrastination and research before I was able to set up the business.
I have been an avid reader my whole life and with social media and the internet it was probably inevitable that I would eventually find likeminded people and be able to share my love of books with a wider audience.
Have you considered writing yourself?
No, I just about got an A in English Language GCSE back in 2000, and that was the last time I tried to write creatively. If I ever had a persistent idea for a book I may give it a go but have no burning desire to write, I would rather enjoy the fruits of everyone else’s imaginations!
What is your favourite genre to read and why?
Chick lit / romance – I like pure escapism. Romance in real life doesn’t seem to agree with me but in fiction I get to experience many varieties of book boyfriend, and with chick lit and women’s fiction I get to enjoy some humour too and generally realistic well rounded identifiable characters, which I can then pretend to be for a short while.
If you were stranded on a desert island, with food and shelter provided, what five items would you want with you?
Kindle – I have so many books on it that even without Wi-Fi I have enough to keep me going for a few years
Sun tan lotion – need to protect my skin as I turn into a lobster otherwise!
A sexy man – well I need to entertain myself too!
A genie in a lamp – Having someone to cast unlimited wishes seems like a plan to me
A puppy – I love dogs and don’t have one and need some company when I get bored of the sexy man!
You can invite three people to dinner, who would you invite and why?
Gordon Ramsay – I need someone to cook the dinner and I like him!
Gary Barlow – a mix of entertainment, great music and well I’m a huge Take That fan but don’t want to invite only them for my 3 spots!
Dave Gorman – he’s a lesser known comedian but I love his jokes and observational comedy and I reckon he would fit in well to this party.
Thank you so much for sharing a little of what makes you tick.
