INTERVIEW & GIVEAWAY WITH THE DAZZLING KRISTEN THOMPSON

Several months back we interviewed Kristen who is super talented and we are so happy to have her back.  She owns the blog Seeing Night Reviews and also is a cover artist!  Check out her interview below and we will also show you some of her amazing work as well.


Cats or Dogs? ( Hey what about Birds and lizards? ) Dogs, I just got a new puppy named Cass, he’s a six-month-old German Shepherd.

Salty or Sweet (This of course means when you’re “playing” because this isn’t an adult Goddess site for nothin’)? Chocolate? How about a little bit of both
Vampires or Werewolves (Of course you can choose “other” but you have to elaborate *snickering*)? Oh I’m all about the werewolves. Got to love those muscular who can keep you warm at night.  
Fireman or Cowboy? Fireman, just love men who can handle the heat and save a life. 
Hairy or Smooth (Body hair)? Smooth!!!…eww to the hairy, I don’t find that attractive. 
Clean Shaven or Stubble? That’s hard, I like them both depending on the occasion. Shaven is nice to touch but that rugged look is darn sexy. 
Diet or Regular soda (Or....if you’re like me, Kimberly, you’re stuck on Powerade Zero)? I’m a Powerade or Juice girl, I do like soda once in a while though. 
Fruit or Veggies (Or Chocolate)? Fruit, but I’m pretty picky about which ones I like. Adding chocolate does help
Coffee or tea (Or Chocolate)? I’m a hot chocolate lover, especially on a cold night sitting down reading a good book.

The song that is most annoying when it sticks in your head -- sorry had to do it?  You know surprisingly I don’t have one, I only listen to music driving to work and working out but I can’t seem to think of one.
Apple or Microsoft? Apple, since I’m a graphic designer I have both but I love my MAC.
Drama or Comedy or anything with Gerard Butler -- What Shauni? He’s Hawt!  What Kim?*wiping drool* I love Gerard but what about Jason Momoa ooooohhh Or Charlie Hunnan?  OOH Shauni! Charlie!!! We Loves Us some Jax! SOA! All the way baby!  I guess we should let the guest answer the question though, huh? (tv, movies)?  Hmm well I love me some Jax any day as well and Jason Moma… But my main man is Thor! Love Chris Hemsworth! I’m all for the action, science fiction and fantasy movie. 
Spring or Fall (Fall -- cuz I can beat him to the floor! *snickering*)? Fall I love the cooler weather and it’s close to winter!
Sedan or Sports Car (Hey! I live in Texas! Where’s the truck suggestion???)? Hmm not a car person but I love my new Kia Soul that I bought.
Tattoos or no Tattoos? Tattoos, I have one and my hubby has three
Favorite splurge food -- Tacos, Pizza, Cheeseburger (Or Chocolate peanut butter swirl FUDGE)???? Love me some good fries and a burger!
What dish do you make perfect? My hubby’s favorite that I love to make is my tacos with lots of my special spices, along with my homemade salsa and guacamole. 

Can you give us your favorite Christmas cookie recipe? If not the recipe, your favorite cookie, we’ll find the recipe.
I don’t have a recipe, but my mom and I make sugar cookies and add some sprinkles on it before baking them. 

What dish have you messed up completely by burning or over cooking it? I tried making a lemon meringue pie, it came out so bad, I think I missed something in the ingredients…let just say it tasted like egg…I’m not a pie maker.
Now is the part where we let you do some shameless self promotion of your books, artwork or jewelry (this sentence will be centered directly towards you and your work when the interview comes up).  Please tell the readers something about what you’re currently writing or what has just been released.  We’re shameless when it comes to pimpin’ new stuff!  
I just finished a book cover design “Full House” for author Jean Holloway for her Deck of Cardz series. It comes out this month for the holidays. It was a lot of fun working on a genre that I haven’t done before and I was really happy with the turn out. 
*Can you please show the readers some of your most favorite work? Feel free to shamelessly promote your achievements here because we, as Goddesses, totally would!  
What is one of your most favorite pieces that you have done for yourself? If its something personal and you don’t want to show it, can you tell us about it?

One of my favorite design pieces would have to be for my own book that I wrote for college. I designed the full layout for my book cover called Unknown Magic and I also love two sample cover piece I designed called Fantasy Castle and Forsen Hills based on two short stories I started a while back. My style of design is a rustic urban look, I love using textures and doing a lot of photo manipulating. I love all my designs and put a lot into them, I wouldn’t be able to choose a favorite. I was honored to design for Jean Holloway for her series and I hope to continue to design for many authors to come. I design ebook covers, full prints, banners, headers, and bookmarks. You can find me over at Seeing Night Reviews or KCT Designs for more designs and to check out the wonderful books I review. 


 Here is the cover to the latest book Kristen designed.  Pretty cool!
Thank you to the wonderful ladies here at Reading With Baking Goddesses, it was a pleasure and I had a blast!
