Is it weird to post a link to an interview of me?

In answer to my title’s question . . . perhaps. But I can’t help it. The questions were really fun and I’m excited and flattered to be featured on one of my favourite blogs, scribo ergo sum–a blog that just coincidentally happens to belong to to one of my favourite writers, Jen Brubacher. It is the best coincidence of all that she is also a dear friend.

Anyway, I always love a chance to talk about writing and if you’re at all interested in hearing about my first publication, how I got into writing and editing, what my opinions about ebooks vs. traditional books are, what my favourite writing books are, plus other intriguing writerly things ;-), please check it out at: http://jbrubacher.blogspot.com/2010/07/interview-with-ev-bishop.html

  1. Thanks, Holli! 🙂 I take “interesting” from you as high praise. I can’t believe how prolific you are on your blog–and what great quality/food for thought each entry is.

  2. Oh, the blog–what a cross to bear that is! I love it, but coming up with new posts five days a week is definitely becoming more difficult, especially with the tight perimeters I’ve given myself. And without feedback, I have no idea what my audience really wants to see more of. I’m just winging it!

    And it was a great interview. I really like the part where you said that writing is what you love to do most, and also what you try hardest to avoid. I feel that way all the time!

  3. Dear Holli:

    Re: “I love it, but coming up with new posts five days a week is definitely becoming more difficult, especially with the tight perimeters I’ve given myself.”

    Yeah, I can tell you’re enjoying it, but I can only imagine how difficult keeping up your five day a week goal is. Since you have an audience, regardless of whether they leave comments, you know you’re giving them what they want.

    “I really like the part where you said that writing is what you love to do most, and also what you try hardest to avoid. I feel that way all the time!”

    It really is weird, eh? 🙂

  4. It’s not weird at all. These days authors are expected to do a certain amount of book promotion. Like it or not, that inevitably involves self promotion. You are simply letting your readers know about the interview – no one has to follow your suggestion and look at it.
    I’m off to read it now and thank you for letting us know about it.

  5. Dear Leigh:

    Thanks for the affirmation. 🙂 I hoped you enjoyed the interview.

    And I gotta say: it’s a bit weird for me (and super cool) that you came by my blog. I have a signed copy of CUT SHORT that Jen sent me for my birthday and was just online a day or two ago seeing if I can get my hands on ROAD CLOSED in Canada yet . . . sadly, it’s a no go as of yet. I’ve heard it’s great and I can’t wait to read it! Congratulations on all the exciting things that are happening in your writing/publishing life.

  6. I know you’re really busy, but I wish you’d blog more often. 🙂 You posts are always so enjoyable to read, and it’s almost like being able to chat with you again.

  7. Just managed to read this now, Ev. Great fun to learn all this stuff about you / through you. I know someone pointed it out already over at Jen’s site, but I appreciate what you say about ereaders. I had not thought of it in those terms before. It might get people reading who don’t normally read, just by being on a different format.
