It was a day of achievement today: after kissing Luscious goodbye (there are advantages to undertaking a residency within driving distance of home- a visit from your wonderful wife is one of them), I embarked upon my first engagement of the fortnight– a forty-five minute interview by the participants of the KSP Press Club, led by my old pal and fellow author Melinda Tognini.
You might remember: a little while I mentioned being interviewed for writingWA’s Cover to Cover program.
Well, the interview has gone live!
So if you have a spare thirty minutes, and want to hear me talk about writing Magrit, the fearlessness of children, my processes, and how absurd my children are, now you can watch it all in spectacular Life-o-Vision ™!
I’ve been interviewed over at writer Louisa Loder’s website. More Magrit talk, plus writing horror, changing things up, and a kiss for an albino snake.
Check it out.
How’s this for pretty? It’s a brag sheet developed by Walker Books to remind you all that all the cool kids in town like Magrit and you should definitely get yourself a copy so everyone will think you’re cool, too.
I mean, really, you really should.
In other news, I’ve been interviewed by the delightful Meri Fatin for writingWA’s online program Cover to Cover. It’ll be available on their YouTube channel from the 20th April, and here’s me looking all grown up and respectable while I pimp it:
Here’s the official poster:
Tune in from the 20th for half an hour of me talking all things Magrit, children’s writing, and how difficult it is getting through an entire novel without dropping an F-bomb…
As part of the Magrit promotional trail, I’ve been interviewed over at Kids’ Book Review, for their 12 Curly Questions section.
Nicole Murphy is a truly excellent author of speculative fiction, romance and erotica, and over at her website she’s running a series of interviews on the road to publication.
She’s been kind enough to offer a platform for my unique brand of self-indulgent blether, and I have complied. You can read my interview with Nicole here.
In happier news, the Australian SF Snapshot series of interviews is being conducted again, and once again I have been snapped and shotted in what’s becoming increasingly like a 7-Up version of my again self.
This time, journalist Nick Evans has asked the questions, grilling me on the transition from adult novels to childrens works, my Australian TBR pile and just what the hell I think I’m doing with what’s supposed to be my career.
