I am starting a series of email interviews for my blog, under the series title "The Interrogation Room."

First up will be Peter Burton, then Mark Friedlander -- who else wants to play?

(Please note: While self-published authors go to the head of the line, this little venture is open to all of you, even the fancy-pants agented and published by real houses authors on here. You know who you are.)

Also, the title sounds far more serious than the questions will be. You've been warned.

Mazel tov!

  • Publishing Experience:My debut novel, "The Sister Queens," (March 2012/NAL), was set in 13th century France and England and wove the captivating story of sisters, Marguerite and Eleanor of Provence, who both became queens. My next solo novel, "Medicis Daughter," (Dec 1 2015/Thomas Dunne) traveled forward three-hundred years to the intrigue-riven French Valois court, spinning the tale of beautiful princess Marguerite who walks the knife edge between the demands of her serpentine mother, Catherine de Medicis, and those of her own conscience.

    In between I became a "hybrid" as part of a group of six authors involved in a high concept novel-in-six-parts called "A Day of Fire" which released in November of 2014. The book, "A Day of Fire," tells the story of the final days of the doomed city of Pompeii in a way you've never read it before.

Hey, I'm no shrinking violet. I'd be happy to do something to get the ball rolling on Summer's Edge, the upcoming anthology from Elephant's Bookshelf Press. We're still accepting submissions (through the 19th), but by the time you have me up, it'll be closed and I'd be able to speak to a bunch of aspects of production or whatever you have in mind.

You're in, o wise one. Send me an email addy.

I saw violet elephants once. But that was only because I refuse to see the standard pink ones when I'm drinking. :cool:

Perhaps it depends...what were you drinking? Excess rum turns my elephants a shade of orange, whereas añejo tequila brings out the chartreuse.

Tom,

 

Your questions got caught in my SPAM filter. I wrung them out, dried them off and sent them back to you. I hope they made it ok.
