Special Guest - Nomi's Paranormal Palace

Our special guest today is Nomi from Nomi's Paranormal Palace!

1. Tell us a little about your company/site

Nomi’s Paranormal Palace is where I blog about books. Most of the books I try to read/review and some I promote for authors to help them get the word out.

2. What gave you the idea to start something like this?

I was always ringing my sister and talking to her about books that we had both read, but I thought why not share my thoughts with other people who are just as addicted as me!! So, Nomi’s Paranormal Palace was born and I've had so much fun since!!

3. Is this a solo venture or do you have a team working behind the scenes?

The setting up of Nomi’s Paranormal Palace was done by my sister, Simone (who has just started her own business). She is great with all that technical stuff!! If I try to touch anything like that I tend to wreck it (as I did just this week!!) … But everything else is just me!! I’m the only reviewer and I set up all the posts… I think I read too much!!

4. Do you do anything special to attract followers?

I sign on for book tours to try and gain extra traffic. They tend to have giveaways and people like to win stuff, so I usually get a few extra followers from them. I also use social media like Facebook, Twitter etc.

5. Where are the majority of followers from? Are you global, or is your audience closer to home for you?

I’m definitely global!! Lol. I live in Australia, but most of my audience is from overseas. The US is where most of my traffic is from and Australia is next on the list.

6. What is your favorite thing about what you do? What is your favorite part of the job?

I love reading, it’s relaxing and I like to be swept away into the fantasy worlds created. I have also made so many friends, who I have never met in person, and that would never have happened if I didn’t start blogging!

7. Have there been any unexpected challenges?

The biggest challenge is getting all my thoughts down without sounding like a lunatic!! There is so much I want to say about a book, but I don’t want to give too much away. Sometimes though, I am stuck and don’t know how to write it all down, a bit of a writers block I suppose. It becomes a bit repetitive trying to tell someone why you like a book.

8. What are your future goals for the site?

I don’t have any real goals… just to have fun!!

9. What’s your favorite book genre?

I have changed a little of late, I used to read just Paranormal/Urban Fantasy but I have found that I really like Contemporary Romance stuff too… so I tend to alternate between them all!

10. Tell us a random fact about your site that the readers might find interesting.

I have just celebrated my 1 year Bloggiversary and to celebrate, I got Simone to make over my blog with my two alter ego’s!! As I like to read normalish books now – not just the Paranormal books – I wanted my blog to reflect that as well.
11. Do you have any favorite authors?

Ooooh…. So many favourites!! The writing duo – Ilona Andrews. Also Richelle Mead and Rachel Vincent. Ummm…. Jennifer Armentrout, Colleen Hoover…. I could go on forever!!
