#Writingtips and Secrets Revealed – My Interview at Fiery Seas

My Author Interview at Fiery Seas is up today! A few tidbits of writing tips, author secrets, and comments on movie stars from the conversation:

Which book would you want adapted for the silver screen?

The Renaissance Club was made for the big screen. Just think of all those gorgeous places in Italy — Rome, Assisi, Florence, Venice. Not to mention the gorgeous and exciting Bernini (ideally played by the gorgeous and exciting James MacAvoy).

If you were given the opportunity to form a book club with your favorite authors of all time, which legends or contemporary writers would you want to become a part of the club? I’d form the Jane Austen Book Club with Jane herself and her family, who had their own kind of book club. We’d read only takeoffs on Jane Austen’s novels, of which there is an endless supply.

Author Interviews – Should You Give Them?

Writing tips, writing process, favorite movie stars, and other secrets are often revealed in author interviews. They make readers feel closer to writers. I’ve participated in several, and found in the process these advantages:

  • Self-discovery as a writer.
  • Allowing your fans to know you better
  • Sharing new dimensions of your story (such as who you’d cast in the movie!)
  • Connecting to new readers, of course!

Ritual Plug for My Book

THE RENAISSANCE CLUB has been called, “Enchanting, rich and romantic…a poetic journey through the folds of time.” This romantic story asks the question: would you give up everything, even the time in which you live, to be with your soul mate? May Gold, a young art historian meets her artist idol of the 17th century when she slips through a fold in time. Fans of Susanna Kearsley and Diana Gabaldon will want to find out if May’s adventure ruins her life, or leads to a magical new one.
