and someday i’ll learn to read
A fun experience this week. Lots of laughs and good conversation.
Does it get better than that?
I wonder sometimes.
Bridgetti Lim Banda and Mary Elizabeth Jackson were amazing kind and gracious with me. We discussed my marketing philosophy (simple, really; put the reader first), how I got started writing (blame my sister, my favorite story (Dancers in the Eye of Chronos primarily because it’s Susan‘s favorite), music’s role in my life, the importance of fire alarms, Susan’s encouragement in my writing, how my writing has changed, my homage to AJ Budrys (mentioned in my own interview, my ability to mistitle books and authors whom I adore, all the good stuff.
Enjoy – Writers Corner Live show Episode 58 with author Joseph Carrabis!
And I got interviewed, to boot!
Everybody know NineToes?
Ninetoes loves books.
And I’m honored that Ninetoes is interested in The Augmented Man.
Ninetoes is so interested in The Augmented Man that the book is now on Ninetoes’ radar.
But wait! There’s more!
Not only is The Augmented Man on Ninetoes’ radar, Darren Perdue, purveyor of NineToesness, interviewed me about my work.
And the best part?
Darren wants to know when I have more books coming out.
Yeah, I’m good with that.
Joshua Robertson discovers I had a life. Like you didn’t, right?
In the better late than never department – and my apologies for this – Joshua Robertson interviewed me in his Book Tavern a while back.
I could give you excuses why I’m just posting this now.
Except I recently encountered the following quote:
Excuses are lies wrapped up in reasons.
– Howard Wright
So, recognizing that it’s easier to do what’s right rather than increase my mistakes, I’m posting about it now.
Part of the fun of Joshua Robertson’s (and have you checked out his bookcovers? Some serious artwork there) interview was his holding my feet to the fire regarding my past life.
No, not the one when I was leading the Babylonian Ziggurats to the Fertile Crescent Soccer Championship of 2,100BC, the other one, when I was the Chief Scientist, et cetera, for several companies and created a technology complete with several patents.
So I had a life.
Before I became a full-time author.
Enjoy the interview.
And buy my books. Even the technical ones written when I was a Chief this-and-that.
Okay, she thinks The Augmented Man is hot. Okay, she thinks the book is hot.
Award winning Enigma Series Co-Author Rox Burkey wrote an amazing review of The Augmented Man a while back (THANKS, ROX!) and recently followed it up with an interview for IndieBeacon Radio.
You can read Rox’s review on her blog.
You can watch the interview on YouTube and Facebook.
You can listen on Spreaker and SoundCloud.
Then go buy the book.
While you’re at it, buy my other books, too. You wouldn’t want The Augmented Man to get lonely, would you?
You publish an exciting SF Thriller about Recovery from Childhood Trauma and Everybody Wants to Interview You. That’s what I’m hopin’
Everybody’s talking at me…
I don’t hear a word they’re saying…
Okay, I do.
The inestimable Hannah R. Goodman, aka WriterWomyn (you gotta love it, don’t you? I keep seeing Linda Carter bouncing bullets off her wrists.
yeah, I’m that old) asked me nine, count ’em, nine questions about The Augmented Man, what do I read (lots of stuff. Ever gone through my Goodreads listings?), my influences, the worst advice I received about publishing, my theory on rejections (THE FOOLS!), and what I’d do on a stranded island (aside from make sure there’s always a full moon so I can read before going to sleep).
Hope you enjoy.
