Q1 How do you find the time to always be on twitter? Shouldn’t you be writing or something?
My mind is constantly running on overdrive so twitter helps to get out the fluff 🙂
I know the feeling! – also, should have said add A1… and so on so everyone can see this better 🙂
Q2 How did you manage to find a publisher for By the Stars?
Now I know why I’ve not done an Twitter interview before – I keep hitting refresh to see if I’ve missed anything!
(Does anyone on twitter really care anyway? haha)
Q3 Where did this story come from?
I’d kinda like to leave earth, I applied for the trip to Mars but they said I was too ‘chatty’ just rude!
Well we missed A3 and the hashtag off that last question – yay for being useless
(In my defense, I had never done this before heehee. We’re missing just a few responses due to my # deficiency)
Q4 What makes this novella worth the read?
Remembered the number and the #, nailed it!
I once got kicked off a desert island. I don’t mix well, never mind settling with another culture
Q5 Since you always talk of having trouble sitting still, how do you manage to sit and write?
Drinking at ‘wine time’ just seems wrong, well done on making the time, that’s half the battle 🙂
Q6 Tell me which is your fav part of By the Stars
A6 – can you believe we made it to Q6 without breaking Twitter 🙂
(I really wasn’t sure if we’d get through all 10 questions or not haha)
Q7 And this is the first book in a series?
I probably should stop screaming ‘refresh damn you, why won’t you refresh’ in a coffee shop. It’s scaring the locals
Dammit where is question 7?
#BytheStars I know it has to be posted by now. Maybe it’s the sock in the laundry of this interview haha @DanteHarker A7 Yeah. When I finished the first novella, I knew it had more to it but different stories and Embracing Entropy was born.
A7 it’s super exciting to know that you have more than one story inside you 🙂
Oh how I hate editing, or more I hate the awkwardness of getting all the red all over my work when my editor’s done
Q8 Why writing? What drew you to this profession?
I get confused, I shouldn’t be allowed near the internet. Though I’m not in some countries
Q9 How did you come up with the title for By the Stars?
A9 Nope, I have nothing witty to say.
#Bythestars is a great title 🙂
(That made my day!)
Q10 How is book two of the series coming along?
#BytheStars – yay we made it and nothing’s broken 🙂
Damn you #10 I know you’re out there somewhere
A10 we got there 🙂 Thanks to
@jessmbaum for the interview and you can buy her book here: http://www.europeangeeks.com/by-the-stars.html
I was so exhausted after this! Not sure if interviews on twitter will be a common thing or not, but I had fun and am always up for answering questions, even if they don’t pertain to my work, I love talking to people. The human connection really is my thing. Love people (some more than others haha) and Dante is an awesome friend to have done this for me.
