My Thoughts on Stuff (AKA, an interview)

I've been interviewed as a promotion for Return of the Raven. Read the interview at Horrorbound.com here. Laugh at my picture. (I need a real mug shot some day, one of those sweet "I'm a cool author" kind of pics).

I received some stellar feedback about The House Eaters on Friday, and as a result, spent as much time as I could carve out this weekend adding about 4,000 words to the novel. The characters all have their own little baby plot lines now, and I've cleaned up a few holes. More updates later...I promise.

By the way, I hate the word "stuff", especially when my students use it in their writing. What a weak, weak word.

good interview, Good photo as well. I think my best photos are the ones that show the bald spot on top of my head and none of my face.

Congrats on the interview - good stuff. Looking forward to hearing more news of The House Easters and keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Very cool interview. I particularly liked the response to "Why is this an important genre to study?"

Yeah, I say keep the photo!

Great interview. I also liked the responses about horror as literature and horror as shock-inducing gore. I think that's really something all of us should be talking about more. The stereotype leaves the genre much-maligned, possibly moreso than any other genre fiction. (Which is saying a lot.)

Congrats on the interview! I feel the same way about "nice" as you do about "stuff." Ugh.

I would have been a bit more long-winded, but really, who wants to hear this guy blab on and on?

*raises my hand*

Good interview. And yeah, I hate the word "stuff" too. That's why I always use "things" instead :-)

Interesting interview! And that's not a bad photo at all.

Now I'm going to be hypersensitive to the word "stuff." Which is as it should be!

Thanks for reading...I have a true confession about my hatred of certain words, but I'll save it for a full post.

Interesting interview. I for one would not have minded if it was longer.

Danielle Ferries said...

Great interview, and I don't think the photo is too bad at all.
