Viewing entries tagged with 'Interview'
In case you were wondering what had happened to the Book Four Kickstarter campaign, originally penciled in for the end of October/Early November, then the sad news is that it has been delayed until next year. There have been a few problems with sorting out art assets, so both myself and Megara felt it would be better to delay the Kickstarter to improve the experience and ensure that Book Four is the very best that it can be. Frustrating I know - but it will be worth the wait!
In a departure from my usual updates, I’m posting something a little different – an interview with a fellow Gollancz author, A J Dalton. I first met Adam at a Gollancz party not long after we had been both been signed. Both of us come from a self-publishing background, having won the attention of our publisher through the blood, sweat and tears of marketing our own work. Discovering similar tastes in everything from films, books and favourite party nibbles, it was inevitable we would become good friends. (And hell, we even have the “j” in common.)
Writing is a lonely business; cocooned in an office (perhaps office is too grandiose a term – a cluttered, dusty space with some drooping unhappy plants and a lot of unpacked boxes…) with only the occasional glance out of a window to remind myself that there is, indeed, a world out there. With people in it. Sometimes that freaks me out. But a few comforting cups of coffee later (wonder if it will perk up the plants…) and some soothing noises from my nearest and dearest, and I’m able to pull myself back together again. The men in white coats can wait another day.
