The press release for Seconds Before Sunrise released, and Ky Grabowski was kind enough to share it on her blog. Check it out by clicking here.
Originally, I was going to post another YouTube video introducing this, but Weebo (my laptop) was not cooperating with me, and I lost the main part of the video. She must be as exhausted as I was, so I am sorry, but please listen to Ryan’s podcast, The Lurking Voice. Our interview goes up on April 10th. We talk about a lot, including my novels, what it has been like to be an author as well as the C.O.O. of a publisher, and my personal life. I’ve even included a small list below of some of the questions I answered. The Lurking Voice has been on my list of favorite podcasts since it started, so this was an experience I was looking forward to for a long time, and for great reason! I had a wonderful time, and I think you will, too. Ryan is hilarious and to the point. I am still looking for my April guest blogger, so if you let me know what your favorite part was as well as what you would like to blog about, you could win the slot!
Here are some of the topics we discussed:
What did you do for your marketing and website in order to get as many fans as you did?
How different was publishing in 2007 than it is today in 2014?
Are you an adventurer? If you had to pick one place to travel, where would you go?
How did the loss of your mother and roommate affect your writing and your career?
What’s your style in poetry? Do you plan on publishing any poetry collections?
What was your main influence as a child? What teachers influenced you?
Where are my gremlins? (haha. Seriously, this is why you need to listen to it.)
How did you start off writing? What were your first writings like? Was November Snow your first piece of writing?
Publishing as young as you did, how did the editing go? How was the writing?
How did you celebrate graduating college?
My favorite quote?
“I can kill small animals and children…in books. In books, people.” – Ryan Attard
