First, a big shout-out to my buddy Jamie! His blog, Mithril Wisdom, just turned one. Jamie’s a cool young man who reviews books on his site (and for two other sites) and talks about fantasy and science fiction. So if you don’t follow Mithril Wisdom, head on over!
A few weeks ago, I offered everyone a chance to ask the blogging Captain Ninja some questions. Wow, did you guys ever ask questions! So many, this is going to be a three part series. So, if you don’t see your question today, check back the next two Mondays.
From Anne Gallagher - Somewhere I read you were in the Carolina’s. So, am I north or south? I'm north, near Winston. And how old are you? You seem young with an old person's mentality.
I live in central NC, And thanks, I’m trying not to act my mid-forties age!
From Christine Danek - Do you do any sort of ritual before or as you write? Specific food or drink, special chair, etc.
I prefer to relax with my guitar before writing. After that, give me some music and I’m set to go. Oh, and a box of Hot Tamales helps as well.
From Ellie - There’s a certain part of CassaStar that is very emotional. Did it move you to tears after you wrote it?
At the risk of losing man-points – yes. I almost didn’t write it!
From Aspiring X – Any Pets?
Not at the moment.
From Old Kitty - Why aren't you naked?
Let’s just say certain parts of my anatomy don’t enjoy a drafty, cold breeze!
From Falen - what's the worst movie you've seen in theaters?
Toys with Robin Williams. Halfway through, the projector caught on fire. We were never so happy to leave the theater!
From Solvang Sherrie - how many trunk books before CassaStar got published?
Just the original version of CassaStar. And it’s awful!
From Kelly - Who is your favorite Star Wars character? What is your favorite current song?
Favorite character is Han Solo – he’s a rogue, a scoundrel, and a ladies man! Current favorite song is James Labrie’s “Euphoric.”
Tune in next week for round two!
And, because Helen Ginger said it was all right to do so, I am posting my book trailer again for those who missed it. (And so I can watch it and wish it were a real movie!)
