Here are three new additions to the ‘Interviews page’ on my website I wanted to let you know about.
Many thanks to Book Club Mom, Harriet Steel, and LJ Ross for inviting me to visit their blogs. I feel honored that they asked!
Here’s a short excerpt. Click on the links to visit their wonderful blogs.
Do you like using social media to promote yourself and your book? If so, what’s your favorite platform?
Connecting with readers is one of the most enjoyable things about this job! When you write a book, you have no idea if anyone will be able to relate to the characters, setting, or plot. Publishing a book really is a leap of faith. Chatting with readers who enjoy my work or share the same interests I do, really makes it fun. Facebook is my favorite platform, though I am also often on Twitter and Instagram.
Do you have a special place where you like to write?
I am a café writer. As long as there is good music, mint tea, and the other patrons aren’t too rowdy, I write faster in a café. When I write at home, I am easily distracted by the laundry that should be washed or the floors that need a good mopping…
Who is your hero in real life and in fiction?
In fiction, Miss Marple is the first character to pop into my head. She was always in the right place at the right time, can listen without being seen, and is able to put anyone and everyone at ease whilst remaining calculating and calm. I wish I could be like her.
[LJ Ross’s Note: Jane Marple is one of my favourite heroines too – they never see her coming!]
