*Hart will be so happy with the naked title!
And hey, this is post number four hundred for me! That’s about two hundred per year. Yeah, I’m really burning up the blogging world…
First, another round of CassaFacts.
Hey, let’s just go with the question I get the most -
Why were there no women in CassaStar?
1 - Wasn’t sure I could pull of a female character! Yeah, dumb but true.
2 - As I said before, there was a war going on - Byron really didn’t have time for a girlfriend. (Although he might’ve had time for one of those ‘fast women’ on Spaceport 89.)
3 - Since the story focuses on a mentor/brother friendship, set during a time of war, I didn’t want any other distractions, so I went old school with the war setting. (During WWI and WWII, it was mostly men in the trenches.) Since my father was military, I understand the bond when your buddies stand between you and death. I wanted that atmosphere, that focus. (And women are distracting - trust me! I'm thinking about Kate right now...)
4 - Finally, there really is a reason why Cassan women don’t pilot ships and why only a few serve on the various spacecraft. I explain it in the next book… (What, you didn’t think I was going to TELL you, did you?)
Now, as I am totally out of ideas, your turn - what would you like to know?
Second, I have a question about comments. All right, several questions.
If you read, do you always comment?
Are you ever afraid to comment?
Do you return comments? (As in, do you visit those who leave comments?)
If I read, I almost always comment. I sometimes wonder if others are afraid to leave a comment though. Do the amount of comments I receive scare some people. (Crap, some days they scare me!) And what about those who never return your comments? Do they only visit their regulars? I TRY to return comments!! Really, I do. Do you?
So many questions for a Monday morning.
And sorry no one was really naked. Just be thankful it wasn’t me!
