Over on my book review site, I interviewed young adult author, Caroline Wissing today. (-:
Wissing is the author of the remarkable VOICELESS, from Thistledown Press.
Check out the interview HERE! There is also a link to my earlier review of Voiceless.
I did my first author interview on my book review site today. Who better to take the first plunge with than Nyrae Dawn! Her self-published debut YA novel, WHAT A BOY WANTS, was a bit of a surprise hit this past April. (Man, if I were an agent…I would SNAP her up!) Her companion novel, WHAT A BOY NEEDS will hit the e-shelves next Tuesday, June 12th!
Take a jump over to TRY THIS BOOK ON FOR SIZE to read my interview with Nyrae. And remember her name!
Not much to say today. I am getting ready to drive to Huntsville to take part in the Muskoka Novel Marathon. It’s one of my favourite writing events of the year and it supports one of my favourite causes. All the money raised by the 30 writers participating goes to the Muskoka Literacy Council. They are doing great work in the fight against illiteracy! I’m so happy and proud to have a very tiny roll in helping them achieve their goals. Thank you to all of you who sponsored me for this year’s marathon! Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 for the cause. I hope we’ve achieved that lofty goal.
As I take to the road in a couple of hours, with my good friend and fellow marathoner, Sandra Clarke, I will be percolating…searching my brain for the beginnings of ideas. Nothing has come to me yet, but I have faith that my marathon-mind will kick in and give me something to run with!
Gotta run, now. So many things to gather up. I keep thinking I’m going to forget something! And at the back of my mind, I just know it’s my laptop I’ll forget! I will not be writing a marathon novel on my Android phone. Time to put the laptop in the car…just in case!
For now, I leave you with an interview. Fellow MuseItUp Publishing author, Lindsay Below, was kind enough to interview me for her blog. You can read the interview here:
