In Which I am Interviewed Twice, and Slightly Flustered

Lately, I’ve been interviewed twice in one week, and I’ve probably only been interviewed twice before in my life related to writing.  As an author, this is both very cool, and slightly disconcerting.  I like being interviewed, and I’m a little embarrased by the whole thing, too.  Anyway, one interview is at Adventures in Sc Fi Publishing – a podcast.  I’ve actually started listening to the podcast regularly (you can subscribe via itunes from the main site page for the podcast).  It’s exactly dog-walking length – I like to go out for an hour and the podcasts are just about an hour.   The one I’m in also has an interview with the people producing Ray Bradbury’s “Chrysalis.”

I was also interviewed by Travis Heermann, a nice fellow I was introduced to close to the end of Worldcon as “an up and coming writer” – so watch for his work!  I heard he was good from Kris Rusch and Dean Wesley Smith, who know what they’re talking about.  Anyway, he interviewed me for his site, Blogging the Muse.  There are also interviews with a number of other writers there, including my friend and the amazing writer Ken Scholes.  So Travis’s site is well worth dropping by.

Lastly, the Keys to Publishing contest are all up and available now, so if you’re a working writer, these are good:
