Author Interview: Zoraida Córdova

Zoraida Córdova was born in Guayaquil, Ecuador, where she learned to speak English by watching Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker on repeat. Her favorite things are sparkly like merdudes, Christmas, and New York City at night.

*Bio taken from Zoraida's website

I have the incredible pleasure of hosting Zoraida Córdova, author of The Vicious Deep, here today. She stopped by with a fun new interview feature here, called Three Words With...(nifty banner image to come in time)

First, a little about The Vicious Deep...

Description (Taken from Goodreads):
For Tristan Hart, everything changes with one crashing wave.

He was gone for three days. Sucked out to sea in a tidal wave and spit back ashore at Coney Island with no memory of what happened. Now his dreams are haunted by a terrifying silver mermaid with razor-sharp teeth.

His best friend Layla is convinced something is wrong. But how can he explain he can sense emotion like never before? How can he explain he’s heir to a kingdom he never knew existed? That he’s suddenly a pawn in a battle as ancient as the gods.

Something happened to him in those three days. He was claimed by the sea…and now it wants him back.


Now for Three Words With...Zoraida Córdova
In which I torment you a little by asking you to use ONLY three words to describe the following:

The Vicious Deep - Mermaids, storm, crash
Original cover with creepy mermaid

Tristan Hart - hot - strong - torn

I couldn't think of the perfect person to represent Tristan, so I'm leaving this one without a picture. You can imagine him in all his swimmer glory yourself. :)

Coney Island - freak - thrill - chill 
Source
 Merdudes - sparkle - fast - cocky 

Apparently when you Google merdude, you get some dude from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...interesting 
Source
 The Sea King - ancient - lament - giant 

Not gonna lie...I was hoping you'd just say King Triton
Source
Vampires - they - don't - sparkle 

What!? You mean they aren't all like Edward Cullen??
Source
The Savage Blue (if you can say anything, that is) - Lost - Love - Betrayal 

Um, I want it now!

I want to send a HUGE thanks to Zoraida for stopping by today and allowing me to pester her a bit. It was awesome :)
