PIMPBOOKMAMA here saying when
two men come to your blog,
you pull out the fondue, chocolate, and strawberries...for a snack of course.
And then, interview the crap out of them.
Especially when they come baring gifts in the form of a princess, ghost, magic and an ancient needle. Otherwise famously known as the book

And now, the fondue...

1. An alpaca, shears, needle, and Princess Tyra...GO!
David: Shawls look to be fashionable again this year. Maybe we should consider making one that's lined with pockets on the inside. That would be nice; Tyra loves pockets. Maybe we should throw in a slip-stitch for good measure. You never know when a rogue fabricator is following your thread.
Michael: Shawls are fashionable? Maybe I should get one. Seriously though, Princess Tyra doesn't know how lucky she is to live in a castle where her tailor can make fashionable gowns without taking measurements.

2. Who would you say is more "magically" inclined between you two?
Michael: We each have our own unique magical gifts; and when our powers combine, we make a force to be reckoned with.
David: *first bumps Michael* Wonder Authors Powers activate!

3. Suggested snack & drink while reading Woven?
David: Lingonberries and brambleberries are Tyra's favorite. Nels enjoyed a good helping of asparagus stew. And we wouldn't stop you from having a meatball-eating contest...
Michael: I wouldn't suggest eggs; Tyra might be offended.

4. Come up with the coolest Knightly name (attach cool village name at the end) for yourself.
Michael: Sir Sparklypants of Discoham...Now I feel like dancing!
David: Have you seen my blog? I'm already a knight in most corners of the blogosphere. Maybe I could run with Sir Earthquake of The Cosmic Laire (can I count a starship as a village?).

5. The village idiot of Avërand has spoken. What did he/she say?
David: "Is that a ghost in front of you, or are you just happy to see through him?"
Michael: "I'm Batman!"

Fondue Challenge: Fill in the Blanks!
David:  Rescuing Nels was a feat in itself! I never thought Tyra could possibly help. But I guess in Avërand anything goes. Or at least I thought, when that happened. Next thing you know Fargut will be totally out of bee barf. And trust me when I say, that's just the PG version.
Michael: Rescuing a ghost was a feat in itself! I never thought a needle could possible sew life. But I guess in the Great Tapestry anything goes. Or at least I thought, when that happened. Next thing you know Ichabosh will be making dresses out of unbreakable thread. And trust me when I say, that's just the PG version.

Nels can have the asparagus stew.

Tammy, Michael and Davide, this was such a FAB-tastic interview. I think the fondue is overflowing with awesomesauce.

Fantastic interview! Tammy, you really know how to get the nitty-gritty out of your interviewees. Wow... that's a word. Spellcheck didn't nab me for that!
