Question: Who are these mysterious champions you’re constantly talking to/about?
Answer: That would be you. No, seriously. If you’re here, reading my blog, reading my stuff, you are my champion. Okay, calling you MY champion is a bit possessive. It would be better to say you are a champion for me. A champion is, according to dictionary.com, a person who fights for or defends any person or cause. Hello champion, I am your person.
Question: Are you going to write a sequel for Life Reader?
Answer: Yes, but not for a while.
Question: How long does it take to write a book?
Answer: It varies. My shorter stories–like King Arthur and Her Knights I can crack out in under three weeks. (It takes probably 14 good days of writing.) Longer books, like Beauty and the Beast or Red Rope of Fate take me roughly five to six weeks. My LONG books, like Life Reader, take me about four to six months. But you’re asking the wrong question. What usually causes the hold up in releasing books is editing. I have to edit a book a MINIMUM of two times. Typically I edit it three times and skim through it a fourth time to make sure all the formatting is ship-shape. On top of that I try to have my test reader read the book, as well as a proofreader.
Question: Are your books only available in ebook format? You don’t have them for sale in paperback?
Answer: Yes. For now. One day in the future (we’re talking the far off future in a distant galaxy) I hope to offer my books in paperback format, but for now I really love ebooks. I love how cheaply I can offer my stories to you guys, and I love the flexibility. If I flip through one of my manuscripts and notice errors I can 1) wallow in shame and then 2) correct it and upload the file again. If I offer books in print and I flip through the book and find an error I can 1) wallow in shame. The end.
