With a nice, smooth glide down, we land at Laurie’s, where she gets a rather unexpected interview with Lily and Ai.
These three weeks have been very enjoyable. It’s been quite interesting not only to interact with those with comments and questions, but also to answer some of the hosts’ questions. I’ll have to do this again, sometime!
Rooms with Books was to be today’s stop, but it seems they’ve not yet posted my interview. If they succeed later, I’ll revise this post. Until then, their questions and my answers are below the fold.
[they finally got ’round to getting my tour stop up – with no explanation]

Today we stop in at Mixed Book Bag, for something a little different. Rather than the usual interview questions, MBB asked me to discuss world-building; that is, creating a coherent, consistent framework for your characters to move about in. Not just times and distances, but technology, cultures, and so on. Fun!
A stop in at Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock for an actual book review! Nice!
Today’s stop was (is?) to be at Teatime and Books.
[EDIT: The site manager had a bad outbreak of RealLife(TM) on Friday, but things are back to normal, now.]
However, they’ve not got “T4L” posted, as yet. The kind folks at GoddessFish sent them a reminder around 0515, but so far, nothing.
However, not wanting to disappoint, below the fold is a copy of my responses to their interview questions. Also, there’s an excerpt from “Poisoned Hearts,” a webcomic we hope to begin releasing soon!
If T&B gets it together, I’ll post an update to that effect.

It’s Raining Books! Much better than men… or hen, I suppose. Another author interview… I wish more people wanted to talk to my characters; they’re so much more interesting than I am!
Today we find out more about when I chose the genre I did, as well as a deeper look into some of the things that I’m working on. Cheers!
Our next stop is with Edgar’s Books, where he asks, among other questions, “What are your ambitions for your writing career?” Another one I had to think about for a bit!
This was supposed to be a two-stop day, but it seems the other host may have fallen asleep. If she awakens, I’ll update this to include a link to her website.
Back to old Blighty to Alecia Stone’s book blog, CBY Book Blog. I wonder if I’ve another opportunity to insult someone in England? We shall see!
I really enjoy interview questions that force me to think. Ms. Stone had several, but I especially liked #8:
8. Besides your lead, do you have a favourite character in the story?
Tricky. You’d think from my answer to #7 it’d be Dorina, but I don’t think so. I know Fausta started out as an over-powered thug, but she managed to grow older enough to become the second lead in the sequel, “Echoes of Family Lost.” Hell, she ended up on the cover!
Ai is strong yet gentle… but I think I’m really taken in by Henge. She images herself as a small girl, perhaps seven or so, with little or no emotions. However, first among her family, she decides to take two huge steps, with ramifications I am still trying to understand. Heh: I just recalled that at the end of book two, she takes another huge step. Perhaps she’s my ‘chaos’ character? I’m quite fond of her.
After a bit of a slow start this morning on my part, we’re off to Lisa Haselton’s site, featuring a new excerpt about Lily’s past! Enjoy!
The end of the week finds us at Long and Short Reviews! There, you’ll find a character interview with Ai and another short excerpt. To give everyone a breather, the tour shall pause over the weekend, and resume on Monday. Enjoy!
