My first encounter with Terrie was at the Indie Mashup in Houston, Texas. She was introduced to me by a friend of mine, and we hit it off. She's absolutely hilarious. The entire time we chatted, she had me laughing. Oh, and check it. We even took a picture together. Since then I've gotten to know her, and can say that her reviews are spot on and she has flawless taste. She's an amazing person and a valued friend.
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m a married 36 year old virgin. Wait that’s a lie… I’m 37. Okay so I’m not a virgin I have two awesome kids. My 16 year old daughter who I refer to as The Girl, and my 10 year old son who I refer to as The Boy. Original probably not, so we’re holding off monogramming the towels.
Where are you from?
I was born in north Texas in a town called Happy ← true story. I have lived in Houston since I was three.
What do you do besides read and promote authors? (which by the way, thank you so much for all you do. We authors can’t express our appreciation enough)
With my A.D.D I do a lot….but not for long.
I’m a baseball/softball mom who is addicted to Facebook and Netflix. I work (I use that term loosely...) part time at a YMCA in the baby room. I spend the rest of my time chauffeuring my kids around. I usually drive 100-150 miles a day running them to school and what not.
Married? Divorced? Single? In a serious relationship with your current book boyfriend?
I am currently married…but divorce him weekly if he tries to make fun of my current book boyfriend. He knows I’m a book whore. I share my new/current sexy man with him constantly! (I may be hoping he gets the not so subtle hints I’m dropping on how I want him to be like my fictional men.) Terrible I know! But don’t hate him for his bad taste in woman ☺
What made you decide to become a blogger?
I fell in LOVE with author D.H. Sidebottom. I devoured her Heart of Stone series and contacted her to tell her just how much she affected me. I wanted to tell her how brilliant I thought she was. She was so extremely kind and down to earth. I couldn’t believe how cool she was. I mean she was author…which we know is basically a rock star that type’s right!! Well As I read and realized just how amazing so many authors out there where I wanted to do more. I wanted to truly share my love for them. There are so many talented authors out there, they’ve created such fantastic books and all they need are people to read them! So I worked with a friend on another blog to learn the ropes and in July I took the leap and created Just Another Book Bitch Blog.
Were there any blogs that inspired you when you started?
I had so many that I followed but mainly stalked author pages. I did start off with Two Sassy Chicks blog where I helped out for a few months.
The love I get from authors when they like my review.
I HATE writing reviews. I HATE IT! I feel like it’s never good enough. I feel like I can never get it right. To me whatever I come up with is just not sufficient enough to who ever I think is reading it. When what I really want to do is sit them down and make them read the books I love. And HOPE and PRAY they love it as much as I do.
So when an author shares my review and says how much they love it I FREAK and feel so honored. Then I FREAK again (and may or may not bring back the cabbage patch dance)
Does that sound conceded? Probably… it’s my favorite part anyway!
What are you currently reading?
Her Masters Teacher by Lily White, and Beta reading 2 books, for one of my favorite authors.
What is your favorite genre(s)?
Dark Erotica & New Adult. Both very different from each other BUT they make mama’s goodies tingle or give me butterflies! I love that!

The entire NSC/Heart of stone series by D.H Sidebottom

Do you have any strange habits or rituals you do when taking on a new book to read for a requested review?
I try my damnest to go in blind. I try not to read wordy teasers, I don’t read other reviews, I even try to refrain from reading the blurb
I’m an emotional reader. If I don’t connect with the characters, I struggle reading even the most well written books. What is something that you feel is necessary in every book you read?
I’m the same way, I need a connection. Whether it’s love or hate I need to feel for the characters. I also need real angst. Anything too sweet just upsets my stomach.
How do you approach the situation of giving a negative review?
I sit in the corner and cry…. Well maybe not, but I do try to find positive points to help level out the negative. But I tend to always add that it’s just my opinion and each books speaks to an individual reader in a different way.
What was your biggest fan girl (or boy) moment?
Not book related but I met Sting several years ago. He asked me where I had been hiding all night. Told me I was beautiful and bought me a drink. May be a bit blah but it was sting and I was totally excited ☺_

You see a woman with her skirt stuck in the crack of her ass, do you tell her or take a picture and instagram that shit?
As funny as that would be! I always tell people that’s something crazy is going on. I’ll be laughing while I tell them, but I’d tell them.
What is your greatest pet peeve you see authors do?
Being fake with their fans. I get that people have off days but I have witnessed a few authors that appear as if they are too good to be at an event and wish people would leave them alone.

I’d have to go with the turrets again. My language is appalling!
