In this interview, Delilah Cordova and I talk about The Wages or the Gift as well as upcoming works, a bit about my writing process, and about what inspires me. Also Delilah gives some great advice on marketing. It was an honor to meet and chat with her today! Also, it was a lot of fun!
Checkout this interview that I did with www.ilikeebooks.com! It’s been a couple of weeks since the interview, but I have been trying to decide the best way to approach announcing it. I think in addition to making an announcement on my blog of interviews, live talks, author chats, and the like, I am going to add a media section to this blog to archive all such instances.
In other news, I got a new review that truly touched my heart. This is review is from a friend of mine who is not a Christian, and does not at all care for the message of my novel. However, she still enjoyed the story, and she said a lot of nice things about my writing. Hats off to Kathleen, for being able to put aside her personal preference and still appreciate the book. I think that’s awesome, but that is not what touched my heart. Keep in mind that I did not tell Kathleen anything about my writing process, so what I am about to point out is a major compliment.
She recognized my research!
That made me so happy. As a person who reads a lot of reviews. (Okay, I just let you in a little secret about me. I occasionally go onto Amazon and read book reviews. Lots of times I read reviews from books that I really liked, or books that are currently on the bestseller’s list. Often times I read five stars and the one stars to two star reviews. And see what naysayers are saying about otherwise renowned works of fiction.) Even with most five star reviews, I don’t see many reviewers noticing the research that went into creating the novel. I did so much research for The Wages or the Gift. (Not my favorite pass time. I do it when necessary.) It was so cool that someone noticed my hard work. 🙂 I am impressed, thankful, and humbled that someone actually noticed that aspect of my story.
