So first, we've got a series of questions courtesy of Solvang Sherrie, awesome person that she is.
Have you ever posted an exerpt of "Superbly Useless"? I'd love to read it...
Alright. I'll post one here. Are you ready? Brace yourself.
Hey, you didn't say how LONG of an exerpt you wanted.
But seriously. I've never posted one. But I'll tell you a secret if you promise not to tell anyone else, and if everyone else in the world skips over this part. Ready?
I entered the first couple of paragraphs in a contest a long, LONG time ago, before I signed with Secret Agent Kate. You can read them here. I got great comments even if I didn't win.
You read that, didn't you, Everyone Else in the World? Le sigh.
As the Query Ninja, have you ever posted the query that landed you with Kate? I know it's good and I'd love to read it too...
I haven't. I'm not sure if I could ninja my own query or not. That's kind of like trying to practice an arm bar on yourself, but I could try. Thanks for the idea!
And finally, what kind of a name is Slayer for a doctor? I'm thinking I would be pretty nervous to show up for an appointment with him!
Actually, Slayer is short for Slayer of Bees. I told the whole story here. So unless you're a bee, you have nothing to worry about.
Storyqueen, who writes some of the most awesome picture books in the world, asks:
What is your current writing project....??? If you can't spill for superstitious reason, give us something, even if it's ambiguous.
I'll give you three words. And none of them are 'the.'
Demon fighting rollergirls.
And now I really want to be one.
Anyway, I'm about halfway done with it. I've been about halfway done with it for a while, but that's because I keep coming up with better ideas. I'm an obsessive editor type. I have been trying to bribe my inner editor to shut it up so I can write some new pages already but haven't been particularly successful.
How do you shut up your inner editor?
