One of the things nobody ever warns you about when you finally decide you want to start writing ‘author’ in the ‘occupation’ box on your bank loan application form… actually, scrub that. Could there be any less attractive career choice to a potential lender of financial largesse? The income stream is less reliable than Centrelink payments. And that’s saying something.
But I digress. As I was saying – an unexpected, and not at all unpleasant, activity associated with having a novel released is that you spend a lot of time chatting about said book with various people who have an interest in things written on paper and a platform from which to speak about those things. Along the way you get asked many questions. And sometimes, those questions really make you stop and think. Enter, Theresa Smith, who just interviewed me and posted my answers on her wildly popular literary blog, Theresa Smith Writes. She rolled out some corkers.
Thanks, Theresa! It was fun.
