Welcome to Grand Central Publishing’s PARANORMAL BLOG TOUR with DARKNESS BOUND by Stella Camerson as well as KISS OF THE VAMPIRE by Cynthia Garner
For the first time I asked the same question to two authors and the delight in their answers always reminds me of how wonderful it is to be able to ask a question of great authors and have them respond.
Describe your most challenging issue when writing a book?
Cynthia Garner’s response was….Oh, my God! The worst thing that ever happened for me is wifi! I can’t seem to break myself of the habit of checking my email every 5 minutes, even though I know there’s probably not going to be anything there. Unless it’s spam, ’cause I’m just not that popular. LOL But when I start getting closer to deadline, somehow that self-discipline manages to come to the surface and I git ’er done!
Stella Cameron’s thought was… Do I only get one? Complaining about the large cat who “helps” me with each book might not be helpful. But a 20lb feline draped across my arms does make it hard to type. If I allow my natural tendencies out of their box, I tell a story from peak to peak—from high point of tension to high point of tension. Imagine a roller coaster with a tendency to leap over any dips so that it can keep landing on the most exciting bits way up high. Just as the roller coaster car tips over to make its downhill swoop there is an “eek” moment, then a “whoosh” that’s usually accompanied by screams of relief—and of anticipation for the next hill. If there isn’t a break, a downhill slide so you can catch your breath, you’re probably heading for a panic attack. This is a challenge. After many books, I know I must be vigilant and make sure my pacing works like a bouncing ball rather than a rocket.
