Interviews, and ha ha ha. Not.

TC#1
So I finally got the chronic sinus infection cleared up, after over a year, and then my upper spine went haywire leading to daily crushing headaches. So I went back to my genius physio (the one who fixed me when my lower spine imploded last December) and he started fixing things. And then, bless him, he gave me a spectacular head cold. It's going away quite fast, because I'm taking the equivalent of 36 cloves of garlic a day (Kyolic aged garlic pills, they are da bomb, no smell,  go for it!!!!!) but no writing  for a day. So tedious!!!!

Anyhow, playing catch up with stuff, I did a couple of interviews recently and here they are:

With Donna Hanson, co-convenor of next year's Australian National SF Con, where I'm a guest of honour, a chat about using beta readers. That one's here.

With Tor.com, a wonderfully thought-provoking series of questions. I got quite carried away. You can read it here.

Thank you! I loved the Tor interview. I'm a huge fan of your Star Wars novels specifically *because* they're character-driven. I can't think of another author who has a better grasp and portrayal of Obi-Wan and Anakin. And unfortunately, I think many of the SW books fail on character development. As excited as I am that you wrote a short story featuring the Antilles, I was secretly wishing it would be a Clone Wars story! ;)

Thanks so much, Jen! I'm so happy the SW books work for you. I confess, I can't come at any story without filtering it through character first. *g*

As for the short piece, I was specifically asked to write something that would tie into Aaron's new release, and when I read his book it was Antilles father/daughter dynamic that really caught me. Maybe a Clone Wars story next time, if they let me do another one!
