MoAA Interview #5: Justin Macumber

I met Justin Macumber on a podcast. (Isn’t the 21st Century Wonderful?) Justin was the guest host on Dave Robison’s Writers Roundtable when I was asked on as the guest author. Together we all workshopped a story by Lauren Harris. I was really struck by Justin’s insight into the story–the comments he made were incredibly logical and seemed spot-on…

MoAA Interview #4: Shanna Germain

I was instantly struck by Shanna Germain the moment I met her. No, not physically, silly people — it was just one of those instant connections on a higher plain. Of course, she was already a very good friend of my very good friend Mary Robinette Kowal…and dear friends of my own dear friends are instantly cherishable to me….

MoAA Interview #3: Sarah Beth Durst

Sarah Beth Durst and I met last fall at the Baltimore Book Festival. I thought she was super cute, but as the Fairy Goddaughters say, “Lee, you think everyone is super cute.” We took a pic together, but we didn’t really have time to hang out. Fast forward to this summer and Nebula Awards Weekend in San Jose, where…

The Publicity Machine Rolls On

Those following on Facebook (and sometimes Twitter) know that right now publicity for the paperback of Enchanted is the LAST thing on my mind right now, as my niece undergoes a very dangerous heart surgery up in Burlington, VT. But, as my very wise and significantly more published friends have reminded me, the publishing machine does not stop for…

Her Majesty’s Dead Robots

Okay, first…can I just say…now that I’ve written the title to this blog post, I really want to go write the short story that goes along with it. *sigh* What the title ACTUALLY references is my guest spot on Justin Macumber’s Dead Robots’ Society podcast. I had a GREAT time talking to Justin and Paul and Terry last night…

Princess Unbound

I have another fun and quirky interview today — my hosts are the lovely bloggers at Pages Unbound. I also get to answer my favorite question: the “is there anything we forgot to ask you?”, or what I like to call The Blank Check. What did I decide to ask myself on this particular occasion? There’s only one way…

Interview Up at The Writers Voice

There are authors who don’t like interview questions. I suppose that, someday, I might get sick of them too. Maybe I’ve just always liked essay questions–maybe I just love talking about myself (and my books!). The best part about doing interviews is when questions come along that are just REALLY FUN TO ANSWER. I have to say, Emma’s questions…
