Interviewed by M L Moos

My good friend M L Moos interviewed me recently and asked all kinds of embarrassing questions about me as a reader, writer, and dysfunctional human being (my words, not hers).

It was a fun interview to do and you should absolutely check it out.

From the interview:

1. Tell us a little about you and what you’re working on.

My name is Alecia and I’m definitely not obsessed with cats or dragons. Sorry, I can’t say that with a straight face.

Bite Somebody Else with Sara Dobie Bauer

Today Sara Dobie Bauer, author of Bite Somebody and the new Bite Somebody Else, has joined me to answer a few very important questions.

Okay, they’re not end-of-the-world important.

Reader caution: This interview is PG, but Sara’s books are not. You have been warned.

Now for those very important questions.

Excitement and dealing with feedback

My awesome critique partner gave me a pile of suggestions for how I might shorten my manuscript. Here’s my plan for dealing with them.

If you get my monthly digest, you might know that I recently finished the fifth draft of my work in progress (WIP) and enlisted the help of my wonderful critique partner, Anna Kaling, to figure out how to cut 40k words.

Anna got back to me at 3am this morning, and all I could do before work was read her email in a whirlwind of excitement. (Don’t you hate it when real life gets in the way of writing?)

She had some very encouraging things to say, and she suggested some characters and plot threads that she found less than essential to the story.

I was thrilled by her reaction. Then her suggested excisions sank in.

But everything needs to be there!
