WOW! Yay for Beth! Her voice is so cool-sounding! I guess that comes from being in Baltimore my entire life - a southern-ish accent sounds strange and cool! :DReplyDelete
I can't believe this series is over! Beth, you are on my auto-buy list. Just saying.
If I had my own spaceship? I would probably name it "Petrichor". Petrichor means the smell of rain, which is to some, comforting and soothing. I definitely find a light rain comforting.
So, my spaceship would be named for something comforting and peaceful, which I would hope would bode well for my journeys across the stars.
Thank you all so much for your efforts with the podcast, the interview, and the crazy awesome giveaway! :)

I enjoyed listening to this podcast interview, and as for what I would name my spaceship if I was ever lucky to receive one, probably something ordinary like Darkstorm-7.ReplyDelete
What a fantastic interview! I am SO excited about Beth Revis' 'Across the Universe' books and would love to have the chance of reading and discovering her work. As a fan of the Young Adult genre and all things fantasy/sci-fi/paranormal, her work does sound interesting!ReplyDelete
In response to your question i would have to call my spaceship "Starship Cobalt" (as a bit of a star wars & trek fanatic, this springs to mind).
Thank you once again for this apsolutely AMAZING and unmissable oportunity. x

Please tell me this giveaway is international, please!!ReplyDelete
Loved the podcast interview, Beth Revis is soo cool.
As for naming my spaceship, I think I'll go with Naurius 4! Don't ask me why, it just popped into my head. :D
Awesome giveaway! I would name my spaceship "Nephilim 1524", Nephilim for shadowhunters ;) and 1524 because it is a combo of my b-day and my sister's b-day.ReplyDelete

Great podcast! I always love hearing from authors :) I know I'm going the full nerd route here, but I would name it the Enterprise :DReplyDelete
I would probably name my ship The Semicolon. Hear me out: whenever a reader sees a semicolon, they know that the best is yet to come, and that there is an infinite possibility of outcomes to follow that semicolon. That's what the idea of outer space and space travel is to me, and I want to constantly be on the verge of something new.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the excellent giveaway opportunity! Very fun!ReplyDelete
If I had a spaceship, I would have to name him "Daniel" as that has been the name of any GPS or other electronic "talky" device I've ever had. (And I must assume that my spaceship will talk to me- British accent of course, Daniel is British). It's just easier if he has a real name because then I sound less ridiculous when I talk to myself/my spaceship, as I am prone to do; as in "Warp Speed, Daniel!" or "Daniel! Why did you seal that hatch? The man I love is stuck on the other side?" It's the same reason my dogs always have humanesque names- it blunts the view of my insanity. ;)
