What can be better than six #weareallharvey writers getting together? How about them talking about how one writes fiction?
Specifically, science fiction, horror, fantasy, steampunk, historic romance, novels, short stories, flash, …
And even better, they’re all published! Some self, some indie, some small press. Some in the Harvey Duckman Presents series, some in other venues.
That’s what Kate @KateBaucherel Baucherel, Mark @darrackmark Hayes, Alexandrina @Caelestia_Flora Brant, myself and others did for #Scarborough Live this past weeked.
So give a listen (and let them know what you think).
(and yes, i’m one of them).
One benefit of social media is you meet some wonderful people. One of them is author Joseph Carrabis. He has been everything from a long-haul trucker to a chief research scientist. He has taught internationally at the university level; holds patents in a base, disruptive technology; created a company that grew from his basement to offices in four countries; and helped companies varying in size from mom-and-pops to Fortune 500 companies develop their marketing. Most of this bored him. But give him a pen and paper or a keyboard and he’s off writing, which is what he does full-time now.

Brother author Joseph @jrlewisauthor Lewis kindly offered to interview me for his blog.
We crossed paths here and there and I found him to be funny, thought-provoking, and did I say, funny? Yes, I think I did. Joseph is a character. One never knows what will come out of his mouth, or when, and I picture him as “everyone’s favorite uncle.” The kind of guy who can hold an audience as he tells a story- any story. And always, the story will have a nugget to be thought about, gnawed on, and persistent. I hope you enjoy my interview with him. Even more, I hope you give his writing a look-see.
Why, thank you, Joseph (and note his wonderful name!)
Please give a read.
And definitely take his advice can give my writing a look see.
(ps – you can watch my interview of Joseph at Joseph Lewis – Teens, Drugs and Gangs, O’ My!)
I had the great good fortune to be interviewed by Artist, Architect, Design manager and budding Writer Rika Hemachandra.
Rika currently works in the construction industry, loves art and design, has a passion for reading, spreadsheets (really? She says so) and a curiosity about people, history, current events and Cognitive dissonance (love the way she links those two, don’t you?)
Rika and I covered lots of ground about writing, researching stories, transitioning through different publishing models, and where ideas come from.
This interview is also available on YouTube. You can find the print version on Rika’s blog.
