Does Your Significant Other Read Your Stuff?

That’s right, folks! I’m back from my mini-vacay and already it’s back to business as usual! Fresh in my inbox this morning was this interview with me by the lovely Elena Dillon. She is one of my peeps on Triberr and I contacted her for a review of Blood in the Past a while back. She happily obliged, and enjoyed my novella so much, she offered to interview me! Well, isn’t that sweet!

Here is her review:

“The author keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat. No slowing down for this story. I was interested in the character motivation. I found them complex and thought provoking. I immediately wanted to know what made them tick. I don’t want to give too much away but I’m looking forward to the next installment of the story so I can find out what happens next!”

And here is an excerpt from our interview:

Does your significant other read your stuff? He absolutely does! Which is amazing to me because he hates reading. I know, an author married to someone who hates to read. But yes, it’s true. He usually reads my WIP’s as I’m writing them, chapter by chapter. And he’s very astute and tells me when I miss something, which is often helpful. Although I released Blood in the Past, a prequel, first, I wrote it second. Therefore, Hubby-pants was able to read Blood in the Paint, the first full-length follow-up, first, then Blood in the Past. It was great to see his reaction at having read them in reverse, his appreciation of the way I had tied certain things together and left other things hidden. My favorite moment though, had to be when he read the cliffhanger ending to Blood in the Paint. He just stuttered for about five minutes. “Wait, but, I mean, what? Shouldn’t? Wouldn’t? Who? Wait! WHAT?” Hahahaha! Priceless. What do you do to unwind and relax? Writers unwind and relax? I can’t seem to get characters and plot twists out of my head. I must be doing something wrong…

Okay, so maybe I was able to relax a little bit the last few days while Hubby-pants and I were away for our anniversary mini-vacay. That’s not the point, but more on that tomorrow, with pictures and observations. Anyway, if you’d like to read more of my interview with Elena Dillon, please visit her blog.

Also, as of this writing, Blood in the Past is currently #5310 in all of the Kindle Paid store, #6 in Serial Killers, #63 in Psychological Fiction, and #86 in Psychological Thrillers. That’s not really related to anything, I just felt like bragging thanking all of you awesome, loyal fans. And if you haven’t read it yet, maybe you should. 🙂

  1. No, she’s like Mikey. She hates everything (I write). Go figure. She finally talked me into writing a fantasy. When I did, she tried reading it and hated it, of course. Not her style. She’s definitely not my sounding board. Funny, I got my first contract for the fantasy even though I’ve written more in other genres.
