Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
For me, it's all about the reader. I can enjoy my worlds and stories in my head, but what motivates me to spend thousands of hours writing and polishing a book is so that readers can enjoy it too. I love to hear from readers: learn what they liked, their interpretations of my characters, their questions about my worlds. It's amazing what insight I can gain from that. I appreciate every person who takes the time to read my books, and hope they believe it was time well spent.
What are you working on next?
Right now I am polishing a dark fantasy about a necromancer. I hope it will break the usual cliches. He's cocky, sarcastic but definitely a hero. Along with his feisty female apprentice, he becomes embroiled in a sinister plot that threatens to kill tens of thousands. It's a tale of determination and love in the face of adversity, of betrayal, forgiveness, and other good stuff. Look for it in 2014.
