Moonless Blog Tour!

I'm super excited to host Crystal Collier today as part of her blog tour for MOONLESS. Take it away, Crystal!

Top Ten of Florida

You know you live in Florida when...

10. You've got "Sunshine" when most people are dealing with rain, snow or other inclement weather.

9. "Eek it's a mouse!" You shriek and jump. "Oh, no, it's just a roach." You deflate.

8. You fear standing water.

7. You can casually say, "Oh yeah, it's hurricane season."


6. To go exotic bird watching all you have to do is pull up a lawn chair, sit in your front yard and wait until exotic birds start picking bugs out of your lawn.

5. You are tan 24/7.

4. You can drive an hour any direction and be at a different beach.

3. CRUISE PORT. Need I say more?

2. The question isn't "What should we do tonight?" It's "Which should we do tonight?"

1. The worst torture in the world comes from the smallest people in the state. (Scar must be a Floridian.)

What's your favorite and least favorite thing about where you live? And what about your local defines you?

Crystal Collier, author of MOONLESS, is a former composer/writer for Black Diamond Productions. She can be found practicing her brother-induced ninja skills while teaching children or madly typing about fantastic and impossible creatures. She has lived from coast to coast and now calls Florida home with her creative husband, three littles, and “friend” (a.k.a. the zombie locked in her closet). Secretly, she dreams of world domination and a bottomless supply of cheese. 

You can find her on her blog and Facebook, or follow her on Twitter.

  1. Your comments are so true about Florida! I lived there for a while when I was a kid, so I know! I'm still trying to figure out Georgia. I'm a Buckeye girl at heart!

    1. That's right! You did just move a state away. *waving* Hello neighbor!

  2. Fun list! (That roach pic wigs me out, though. EEEEEK.) #10 on your list is also true for us Arizonians. ;)

    1. Ah yes, Arizona. I don't envy you the scorpions in place of roaches.

    2. I've honestly never seen a scorpion! I have dealt with roaches, though, heh.

  3. Florida roaches are horrifying.

    Yes, this is all true.

    1. Especially because there's no way to really keep them out--other than maybe own a cat. I haven't tried that one yet, but have heard fabulous results for other people.
