I’ve just finished my thebookcast.com interview, and it was so much fun. Yes, fun.
Bill Thompson, the interviewer [and owner] of thebookcast.com has been a broadcaster for decades, and his experience shows in the ease with which he made me feel comfortable. However Bill’s talents also include being a great listener, and knowing how to ask those big, insightful questions. He is also funny, and very kind. In a word, he’s a great person to talk to, and talk I did. 🙂
The interview should go live on either Friday or Monday, so expect another very excited post when it does!
But wait… there’s more!
Over the last few weeks I’ve been getting to know an indie author by the name of Christie Meierz. I found Christie through her novel The Marann, which I enjoyed a great deal. Christie writes in a genre that is a fusion of romance and social science fiction, and her world building fascinated me from the word go.
The aliens in Christie’s novels are humanoid in appearance, but scratch below the surface, and they are very different to the rest of us upright apes. It was this difference that I loved the most. As Christie has sold over 5,000 copies of her first book, I’m obviously not the only one who likes her world, and the people in it!
Christie has just released the second full length novel in the series, The Daughters of Suralia, and it is even more engaging than the first one [The Marann] because this time we get to see how the Tolari live, think and feel… from the inside. And there are some interesting personal relationships going on as well!
So you can see why I’m so thrilled Christie read my book, and reviewed it. 🙂
And then, on top of everything else, the sun has come out, and I don’t have to cook tonight! Life just doesn’t get much better than this for a writer. 😀
