By that I mean: I was interviewed yesterday at Novel Reads, a wonderful web site where readers and writers can meet and converse. Like a convention, only cheaper.
Sofia Essen, who interviewed me, does a great job with all her guests. If you’re a reader, go browse around and maybe you’ll find a new favorite writer. If you’re a writer AND a reader, go look for new favorite writers and see about getting your books on the site for others to find.
Meanwhile, I’ve been writing up a storm. I wrote and posted a romance (yes, I do sometimes write sweet and tender stories) involving an aardvark, though not as one of the principals. It’s at #amwriting, and it’s called “Aardvark With An Arrow”.
I finished the mermayd story I’ve been working on for the June Summer Reading Trail, so look for “Blood of Mermayds” here on June 1, 2012. Then I’ll probably take it down and put it up at Amazon for 90 days in KDP Select, then price it at 99 cents and put it up at Smashwords, as well, and from there to iTunes and Nook.
I’m almost finished with “Surviving the Book”, my new Holly Jahangiri and Pel Darzin story for Race to the Hugo Award.
I’m editing a flash fiction horror story for this month’s Quills and Quibbles assignment, and will probably put that here on Sunday for my Sunday Sample.
Did you know there a bazillion sites out there for emergency preparedness? I mean, relative to everything from In case of a natural disaster through When the government breaks down to ZOMBIEPOCALYPSE!!1! Yesterday, I learned how to make a heater and/or stove from a tin can, a roll of toilet paper, and a bottle of rubbing alcohol. Personally, in any of those situations, I’d just as soon use the toilet paper in the way God created it to be used, cook and heat with wood, drink the alcohol, and croak. But that’s just me.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write about someone facing a survival situation.
