I'm a shy person. A certified introvert. So when someone asks me for an interview, my initial reaction is always to cringe a little before saying yes. It's a good kind of cringe. The sort of cringe that means, "Really? You think I have important things to say? Okay."

Good thing this is not an oral interview. Anything of the written kind, I can easily deal with. :)

So, after much rambling, I've been INTERVIEWED! My dear friend, Joyce Alton, threw questions at me--nicely, I may add--over at her blog Yesternight's Voyage. I met Joyce at Agent Query Connect back in the days when I was a flailing newbie at this whole writing thing and was eagerly grasping all I could learn from the fabulous AQC forums. Joyce is more popularly known as Clippership, the "mama" of the Speculative Fiction forum. She always gives excellent writerly advice, and in her blog, she constantly updates her followers with publishing industry info--helpful stuff for those who are looking to break in through the book biz.

Anyway, check out the interview and also Joyce's blog, if you have the time.

Have a lovely day, everyone!

Congrats on the interview. If you want to sell the books, I guess that's what you've got to do.

I was interviewed once. I am a writer and I write every day, but I haven't been published, so I felt ridiculous and like everyone would point their fingers and say,"WHY ARE YOU HERE?" So I totally get the feeling.

Precy, it's liberating to embrace your name. I've done the same, late in the game too, but (another cliche) "better late than never.

Rachna Chhabria said...

Hi Precy, I never got the feeling that you were shy, infact it was quite the opposite, I always thought that you were an extrovert.

Cat Lavoie said...

Off to read your interview now! Congratulations! :) Have a great weekend!

Mario said...

Hi Precy! Just read your interview. Great job! There may be an introvert lurking somewhere inside you but in print you are all Extrovert. Great tips, warm, personal and encouraging. Bravo, Precy!

Thank you so much for your kind comments!

Yes, believe it or not, I'm very much an introvert in real life. But I'm wordy when it comes to writing, so yeah, I can be easily mistaken as an extrovert online. :D And I'm guessing, I'm not the only one. ;)

Thanks again for taking the time to read! You guys are awesome, and I mean it. <3
