So, if you ever wanted to know way, way, way too much about what it’s like to be Gordon and me, I have a treat for you.  Usually we don’t do extended interviews, especially recorded ones, so when about three years ago TJ of InD’Tale Magazine contacted us, we politely declined.  The next year we politely declined.  This year she emailed and said, “You’ve been ducking me for three years now.  Come on.”

So this RT we sat down with her for a two and a half hour interview.  It is available online at this link. It talks a lot about our life and road to publishing. It is an incredibly generous interview that pretty much covered almost two hours and I have no idea how they transcribed it with my accent involved, so I suggest a cup of coffee.  😀  The interview focused more on us than on any particular book, so if you are looking for more information about the series, there is some there but not as much.

Thank you for the opportunity, TJ!

PS.  We are not really the reigning royalty of UF.  We’re more like independent candidates in the UF Parliament.  :)



I am buried in publicity emails and real world errands.  I’m behind on email. We answered over 60 Goodreads questions this week. I had gone to salon to color my hair – blergh, but had to be done.  I had my face waxed and my eyebrows shaped, because it’s faster than tweezing them into oblivion.

Our second car is in the shop, and we’ll hopefully find out what is going on with it later today.  Some time before tour, I need to go shopping and buy snacks for kids as they’re staying home and they are lazy. I also have to go to a nail salon.  I got over my painting nails with a thousand colors stage and now they are clean and in a decent shape, but I prefer a manicure because I will be signing and people will be looking at my hands.  Being a male author is a bit easier in that regard.  All Gordon needs is a hair cut.  :)

Glasses for Kid 2 have been obtained.  My prescription sunglasses as well.

At some point, I will have to do laundry and pack.  And find some sort of audio book that I can blast into my ears as the plane takes off.  Planes are not my favorite.  I am no longer in a state of complete panic, because of exposure therapy.  Whether or not I freak out, I have to get on the plane and I have to fly to my destination, because people will be there to meet me and I can’t just wuss out.  I need something I really can get into.

Well, this concludes this completely mundane post. :)
