Novel Novice asked me for an exclusive interview with Hero’s Guide’s least notorious pirate, Cap’n Gabberman. The old sea dog has a lot to say (and it’s not all ARRRRGH!). Read the full interview here.
Chewbacca, stupid naked people, and Olivia Newton-John show up in my responses to this fun Q&A with Misty, The Book Rat.
A slightly more serious interview about fairy tales, literature, and the writing process, via The Book Wars.
The Hero’s Guide to Being a Blog Tour has begun! First, stop by the Book Rat to meet the convicted rebel, Val Jeanval—what part will she play in the adventures of the League of Princes? Then hop over to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers to be introduced to Rapunzel’s helpful sprites, Blink & Deedle. More new character bios to come.
The Hero’s Guide to Being a Blog Tour begins today—and just happens to coincide with Fairy Tale Fortnight. Stop #1 is The Book Rat, where host Misty reads an excerpt from the new book. Check it out!
