Here's a fun video interview I did in Seattle while on the ANCESTOR book tour.

The interview is by Author Online, an online magazine dedicated to writing and publishing and the creative process in general. Every month you'll find video interviews with best-selling and exciting first-time authors, and book reviews, both fiction and non-fiction. Enjoy!

LOL!

"Think you're a good storyteller? You're wrong. You're terrible at it".

Definitely good advice. There is nothing more...shall we say, 'humbling'...than pulling out that masterpiece you wrote ten years ago and realising it's complete and utter shite.

Great interview. Thanks for sharing!

That's FDØ tough love right there.

 

Makes sense, though. I can't wait to get back to the other crap I wrote and see how I can make it better. just need to wait until after I write my next one. Yay Nanowrimo!

Great interview

It's funny that I have heard other authors say that your method of getting published is a one way road to obscurity. Yeah, right.

Life's tough. It's tougher if you're stupid.

Good interview and worthwhile info...

Scott, there is some some important tips in the interview for authors.

And, basically, we all should keep at it, banging out the stories, collecting those rejection letters, until the nod comes our way.

TRUTH

Great interview.  I agree with listening to the author read the story.  It absolutely helps me connect with the story and characters.  And I think you do a great female voice!  Just kidding, please don't strike me down FDO.

It's because they don't want to waste their investment

The people who say that are probably over 50 and came up in a completely different publishing world. It's not the way it once was, when you are starting out you don't have this established short-fiction market, or your Ivy League MFA connections, etc. They don't like it? Finem, fuck 'em.

Honestly, I'd rather see people trying to do it the old way. Publishing is shrinking, and I don't need any additional competition fighting for the customer's doller.
