Thanks to the lovely Candilynn Fite:
I heard of the GEARING UP TO GET AN AGENT BLOGFEST!
It is hosted by the equally lovely Deana Barnhart:
Here are the questions we are to answer to break the ice with one another:
Where do you write?
I write in the kitchen where all the necessities are to be found: hot tea, cold coke, and dark chocolate!
-Quick. Go to your writing space, sit down and look to your left. What is the first thing you see?
I see the stuffed German Shepherd puppy in his fluffy bed, his battery-operated side going up and down as if he were sleeping. Little Buddy never makes a mess and relaxes me as I write!
-Favorite time to write?
No favorite time. As a harried rare blood courier, I write whenever I can squeeze some pages in. I try to write at least one page per sitting.
-Drink of choice while writing?
Hot tea. Captain Picard, Jayne of THE MENTALIST, and I love hot tea. :-)
-When writing , do you listen to music or do you need complete silence?
I listen to soundtracks mostly: Hans Zimmer, Howard Shore, John Williams, James Horner, etc. Like Candilynn Fite, I also listen to PANDORA.
-What was your inspiration for your latest manuscript and where did you find it?
THREE SPIRIT KNIGHT was inspired in a sense by THE HUNGER GAMES and my desire to have my scamp of a hero right the wrongs in my END OF DAYS.
-What's your most valuable writing tip?
The best tip I've found is from Ernest Hemingway (whose ghost often visits this blog) who said the key to success was NOT writing. It was RE-WRITING.
D. G. Hudson thought the teaser cover blurb to this image was best. What do you think?
And thanks to the second person who has bought THE LEGEND OF VICTOR STANDISH. Right now, after the hospital, it means more than I can say! :-)
Victor Quote of the Day:
"Don’t let your mind wander. It’s too little to be let out alone."
On Amazon's Best Selling Haunted New Orleans list, my books (BURNT OFFERINGS, THE RIVAL, CREOLE KNIGHTS & THE LEGEND OF VICTOR STANDISH)
are #7, 8, 10, ll respectively! Odd in that only LEGEND has sold a mere 3 copies! Does anyone understand Amazon's math?
