Always the Interviewer, Never the Interviewee...

...Until now:)

Several weeks ago, three lovely ladies asked me to do an interview, and I must say, it’s just as fun to be the interviewee as it is to be the interviewer. Definitely stop by these ladies’ blogs and say hello.

Mindy McGinnis of Writer, Writer, Pants on Fire asked me a lot of insightful questions about Bob.

Chantele Sedgwick of My Writing Bug focused a little more on me and my writing routine.

Finally, Marybk of Not an Editor asked me some awesome questions about critiquing. They really got me thinking, and I went on for quite a while about my critiquing adventures with Bob. (Sorry, Mary, for being so long-winded.)

In other news, Kayeleen Hamblin of Kayeleen's Creation Corner and I are hosting the second annual LDS Writer Blogfest next week. If you’re an LDS writer-blogger who might be interested in participating, there’s still time to join! E-mail me at kvandolzer(at)gmail(dot)com for more details.

And last but certainly not least, Perri of Lesser Apricots (don’t you love that blog name?) gave me this stylish-looking award a few weeks ago. To claim it, I have to tell you seven things about myself. I’m gonna cheat a little and just direct you to those interviews. Then I’m gonna cheat a little more and only pass this award on to one other blogger, Amy Sonnichsen of The Green Bathtub. Amy is one of my original critique partners, and she’s gearing up to query her latest YA contemporary, which I absolutely loved. Honestly, if no one offers representation on this manuscript, I'll be shocked.

Have a great Thursday, everyone!

Yes, Krista The Generous. Thanks for the fab critiquing answers. And, holy schmokes! 3 interviews...wows.

Thanks for the links!! :-)

Krista V. said...

Thank YOU, Mindy. It was a pleasure. And thanks for posting all those links on Agent Query and QueryTracker.

Yeah, Mary, it was pretty fun to go from having no interviews to three interviews all at once. Thanks again for having me on your blog.

You're welcome, Shannon!

Oh, Krista, you are so sweet. I am all aflutter at receiving this award! Thank you!!

I've been on vacation and when we got back our internet was down for two days, so I'm just now getting caught up. Thanks for all the nice things you said about the book -- and great job landing three interviews! :)

You're so welcome, Amy! You deserve it! Glad you had a good time on your trip! (That's a lot of exclamation points... :) )
