My Name is Thank-You by Kaizen Love: Interview with Excerpt

 


INTERVIEW
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today and allowing us to find out a little bit about you!  What was your first sale as an author?
My very first sale was from a dear friend of mine. He is an author like myself, except he is 90 years old. He asked if he would be given the honor of purchasing my first published novel. Of course, I said yes. It truly was a humbling experience.

What book are you reading now?
I actually just finished a book called "The Afterlife of Billy Fingers: How My Bad-Boy Brother Proved to Me There's Life After Death" by Annie Kagan. It was very interesting, to say the least.
 
If I came to visit early in the morning would you impress me as being more like a chirpy bird or a grumpy bear?
I am definitely a chirpy bird on most mornings. Although, I will be honest and say I have those days where the grumpy bear definitely takes over.
 
Describe what it’s like to be an author in three words.
Happily Ever After
 
What one word best describes you?
Grateful
 
Is there a piece of advice that you have received that has really stuck with you? If so, what was it?
The best advice that I ever received was from the same dear friend who purchased the first copy of "My name Is Thank-You". He says, "It is a writers duty to write. It is our responsibility to be the storytellers, the creators, and the wonderers, planting seeds of imagination into the minds of children and adults alike. We are the real magicians, because we hold the key to fairytales."
 
About the Book



MY NAME IS THANK-YOU

by Kaizen Love

 

 

BLURB:

 

My Name Is Thank-You allows us into the worlds of two very different thirteen-year-old girls. Each girl’s voice carries its own unique tone, as the girls beckon us to follow magically into their lives. One is a joyous story of hope against all odds, the search for acceptance, and the longing for unconditional love; the other a sad tale of unspeakable abuse, constant rejection, and an overwhelming sense of loneliness. Thank-You and Josephine create around us a world rich with emotion, one that will leave you inspired, breathless, and yearning for more words.

EXCERPT

 

"They say that a child’s imagination is one of the most powerful forces on this planet. As children we are able to tap into the mystery that exists outside of the walls of our minds. We are free from the cage of reasoning and ignorance. We are able to look beyond what is directly in front of us and see the path that lies ahead. As we grow, we begin to lose sight of these things. The mystery becomes overshadowed by the wall that grows bigger with each human experience. Eventually, we forget the magic and wonder that we once found in the belief that anything was possible, and the word impossible becomes the box that we use to shove God into. " (My Name Is Thank-You)

Excellent words of advice.
