To Other Authors
What are the three MOST important pieces of advice you would give to a brand new author?

  • Don’t give up. Keep working at it no matter what other people say or how many time you get rejected.
  • Finish what you start. Don’t worry about editing, submitting, cover art, or anything else until you actually have a finished product. If you keep going back you’ll never finish.

What’s your favorite way to advertise?

  • I guess Yahoo groups. I see advertising as a necessary evil, and don’t really like doing it.

What hard-knock lesson did the publishing world teach you (can be your own experience or someone else’s that you learned from)?

  • Don’t put all your eggs, or books, in one basket. Starting out I had two publishing houses close under me and learned that spreading yourself out between houses isn’t a bad thing.


For the Readers
What are you reading, if anything, at the moment?

  • Legs By Dee Dawning
  • Kushiel’s Mercy By Jacqueline Carey
  • The Beast Within By Kelly Ethan

Do you prefer ebooks or print for your reading pleasure?

  • Depends on where I’m reading at home either will do. If I’m in the car or at an appointment print, just because I don’t have an ebook reader.

Name three of your all-time-favorite, read-them-over-and-over books.

  • Wow hard one. Any of the Xanth Series by Peirs Anthony.

Idle Curiosity Compels Me to Ask
What inspired you to be a writer?

  • I’ve always loved reading and making up stories. It just kinda came naturally as the next step.

What do you do immediately after finishing a manuscript?

  • I don’t really do anything after finishing a manuscript.

Do you talk to your characters or your muse or both?

  • I don’t really talk to them, but they sure do talk to me. Sometimes even yelling.
