Julie's Question - Yummy Men and Kick Ass Chicks
by Yummy Men and Kick Ass Chicks

Carmel: Not typically, no. I do have moments when I’m really into the story that I kinda bridge the gap between being the reader and the heroine. This usually happens when I’m really into the book, connect well with the main character and the novel is written from a first person POV. I read to escape reality not to take over someone else’s (if that makes any sense?). But, I feel like I’m the exception here…

What about you?

  1. It usually happens when the hero is very, VERY sexy. That’s how I know author mispronounce my name LOL
    Seriously, though, it doesn’t happen that much. I tend to “sit” somewhere behind the scenes and “see” all characters. I tend to feel all characters in some way or another. That’s why sometimes I’m drooling at the sight of the evil guy if he’s sexy enough 😀
