I’m over at The Bookcast today talking with Bill about All That Is Necessary, Exeter and just what happens when past and future collide. As always, Bill does a great interview, and it was fun to be on the other end of the questions for a change. He and I also talked after Thrown Out was published, and you can see that interview (and one with Roz Morris) down the bottom of the page.
I’m over at the IBC blog today with a guest post that looks at figuring out how to best position your book genre-wise for success. Or, more accurately, how not having a specific genre for your book makes it harder to get traction, at least based on my experiences with Thrown Out.
Come on over and join the conversation in comments. And if you’re an indie author who hasn’t checked out the Indie Book Collective, it’s a great resource for indie authors at all stages of your careers.
When I first picked up In Leah’s Wake, it was because I’d gotten to know author Terri Guiliano Long on Twitter. But it was her wonderful writing that kept me from putting the book down before it was done. She spins a wonderful, heartbreaking tale of a family spiraling out of control. And today, she’s taken a few minutes to answer some questions about the books and her characters.
