Interview with Cecily Gates

What is your writing process?
An elaborate system of 3x5 notecards, and a really big table.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I spent an obsessive amount of time on Twitter, both as @cecilywrites and @thepagegirls. Thanks to the folks I meet there, my TBR pile is precariously and gloriously long.
What are your three favorite books, and why?
I love this question. I've got a pretty eclectic mix:

The Red Tent by Anita Diamant for its lyrical, touching portrayal of the bonds of womanhood
His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman (I'm cheating and squeezing all three books into one here) for its extraordinary world.
Here for the Cake by Emily Poule for its serious LOL factor.
