IndieView with Lianne Simon author of Confessions of a Teenage Hermaphrodite


The world of publishing is still rapidly evolving, but at the time, it seemed that good writing wouldn’t necessarily get you an agent. And without feedback, it’s difficult to tell what’s wrong with your query letters.

IndieView with Nick Hirst author of The Shape of Rain


I heard a story on the BBC while driving that sparked my imagination. Later, in California I saw a road sign that inspired me and gave me another idea and it all sort of gelled into one.

Reviewer IndieView with Patrick Murtha of Book’em, Danno!

Patrick Murtha

Many of the greatest works of literature – Emily Dickinson’s and Gerard Manley Hopkins’s poetry, John Kennedy Toole’s “A Confederacy of Dunces” – didn’t make it past the slush piles of their times, and it is only by a fortunate concatenation of circumstances that we have them. We don’t know what other great writing has been lost forever.

IndieView with Eric Henderson, author of Stranded in Sunshine



I started this crazy blog, The Frantic Flicker, where every week I’d take the title of a current movie and write an original short story with that title in a different genre that had nothing to do with the movie.

Deliverance for Amelia


I believe as a writer, you give a little bit of yourself to any character that you write. So, there are definitely bits of me in each one.

That_Semicolon_Bitch_Had_To_Die 391 by 625


I write hard and fast; I sometimes write fast whilst hard. But for all our sakes, I won’t describe my process any further.

IndieView with Brian Bandell, author of Famous After Death

Famous After Death


I lock myself in a dark room (after the kids go to bed), pour a hot green tea, and blast music that fits the mood of the story. I’ll listen to the song until I can picture the scene and hear the characters in my head.

IndieView with S.K. Kalsi, author of The Stove-Junker

Burned paper on white background with clipping path

I elaborated on the idea of what it means to lose someone and what hand you played in driving them away. It’s a powerful idea. But as Pablo Picasso once said, “An idea is a point of departure and no more. As soon as you elaborate it, it becomes transformed by thought,” and I will add, by feeling.
