Here’s more insights into the favorite shoes of some of the best indie authors around. Is this what makes them write such awesome books? It looks like comfort outweighs looks for these authors.
“I have cupboards full of shoes. Flat heels, high heels, sandals, casual shoes, dressy shoes, you name it I’ve got them. Many of these shoes were impulse buys because I liked the look of them. Many of them have never been worn.
So, out of all these shoes, what are my favourites? That’s easy. It’s the shoes I reach for every day, my trainers! They’re comfortable, and although I have several pairs of trainers, it’s invariably the same ones I wear. You see, I’m a creature of habit. It’s like the wardrobe full of clothes that hang idly there while I wear the same things, or combinations of similar things every day. And that’s because I hate dressing up. I’m a jeans and shirt kind of girl, and what goes with that ensemble? Why, my trainers, of course.” Chris Longmuir. http://www.chrislongmuir.co.uk/
“I’ve got an odd-looking pair of shoes that could belong to a pixie, but I don’t wear them because the pretty edges stick into my ankles. I go for comfort over beauty every time. These are my ugg boots. I wear them pretty much every day all day. Yes, they’re slippers, but they also have soles so you can walk outside in them, and they have souls too because they’re the Australian national shoe; the summer version is the thong.
Ugg books feature in the beginning of my book, Lethal Inheritance. They’re not easy to run in – they slop around on your feet a bit – but, as my heroine Ariel does, you run no matter what you’re wearing when there’s a demon after you.” Tahlia Newland. http://tahlianewland.com
