Hey look, I plastered my face to the top of this post!
A while back, Carrie Butler tagged me in this Not-So-Accidental Blog Tourist hop. I wasn’t sure if I was going to participate, because it’s a lot like the one I did for Chrys Fey, and I wasn’t sure who to tag.
But since I’m working on a new project, I figured I’d focus on that.
1. What am I currently working on?
The project is called The Seven. Seven authors collaborating on multiple collections to bring you creepy delights. My author photo for this is the one up top. The first story focuses on Aladdin’s Lamp.
2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I’ve heard of anthologies, but we’re talking at least 10 books by the Seven. Not thick books, mind you. Don’t think we could do 3 a year if they were big.
3. Why do I write what I do?
For this project, the theme for each book is already set. Being a fantasy author, it’s been hard to switch gears to do supernatural/paranormal, based in the “real” world. I’ve had to think up new characters, which sucks for me. I write much more naturally in Cera’s or Derek’s voice, but neither one fit into the scope.
4. How does my writing process work?
First, I tear out my hair. Then I start with a scene, throw it away, and start again. Seven times. How appropriate, considering we’re called the Seven. I’m a pantser who leans heavily on the character I’m writing. That gets difficult when I don’t know the characters. But hopefully, you’ll like Jensen when you meet her.
I could only think of one person to tag who hasn’t yet participated and might. I met Sarah McCabe on the Mythic Scribes forum when I went hunting for other fantasy writers. She offered up her blog, and it’s been a delight to read. Hopefully she’ll be a no-so-accidental blog tourist. 😉
