Getting to know Cindy Tanner (Contest)

Getting to know Cindy Tanner (Contest)

UPDATE: The winner is…Mary Ann Dean!

I attribute my overactive imagination to being an only child living in a rural area. It made the tedious chores go by faster and once I discovered the magic of books I started writing my own. I’ve kept journals of different stories since I was in elementary school, and as a college student with a tight budget, I found myself unable to get a close friend a birthday present. She was an artist so I decided to gift her with something that couldn’t be bought—her very own story. The first three chapters were ready on her birthday, and then every week I would email her the next chapter until the story was finished. It was the first time I’d shared what I’d written, and the first time I wrote something that wasn’t for my eyes only. From there, I started writing fanfic. It wasn’t until years later that I would go to my first book signing and have the “lightbulb moment.” I wanted to be on the other side of the table. I wanted to connect with readers and get to discuss my fictional people with them. Then my debut novel turned into a trilogy because readers wanted more. The final book was released earlier this year. It was a dream realized and the start of an amazing journey.


Question: I am a hoarder…um, I mean…a collector of books. I own my favorites in physical and ebook formats. Okay and, for a few, I own the paperback, hardback, and eBook versions. I like variety. Do you ever buy duplicates? (I can’t be the only one, right?)

**I will gift a $10 Amazon gift card to someone in the comments.

  1. Yes
    And not always on putt. LOL
    Sounds so good I but it again and then realize I already read it as soon as I start 💜

  2. I have a few duplicates but usually because I can’t find the first copy! When my mom sold the house I grew up in she was like “what are you doing with the 18 boxes of books you left in my basement?” 😂

  3. I used to own duplicates but im trying to make some more space so if I have it in ebook and paper I will gift the paper usually unless I have all the rest of the series in that format.

  4. I have several duplicates especially from my favorite authors. I love my paperbacks because I can read them anywhere, but sometimes I want them on my kindle as well! Lol

  5. I am an ebook hoarder with over 30,000 books in my library. I’ve purchased duplicates – some by accident because Amazon doesn’t let me know that I already own it if the publisher changes. But also sometimes on purpose to support my favorite authors. I don’t have much room for physical books so I only collect signed copies.
