Very pretty two page spread on Tandem in this month’s Justine Magazine! Contains a short excerpt and an interview with me!
I read in the elevator this morning that people are most productive when they adopt a “work-rest” strategy. I don’t know if that means, “Take a 10 minute nap under your desk every three hours”, or, like, make sure to sleep at night (in that case, I’m nailing it), but I just sent in my final draft of Tether so I’m going to hit the hay hard tonight. Probably sometime around 7 PM.
Q: I've started reading Tandem and I must say this: THANK YOU for giving your characters reasonable and realistic names! Really, you don't even know what a relief that is. Unless you come across my recent post in which I gush about it. Can't wait to read the whole thing!!
Haha, you are welcome! I feel the same, made-up names in books really bug me because they call so much attention to themselves (although I guess all names are pretty much made up?).
Little known fun fact: Callum’s name used to be Klio, WHY I DO NOT EVEN KNOW. That was just in the concepting stage, though, by the time he hit the page he was Callum. Not sure how far you are into the book, you probably haven’t gotten to him yet. I hope that doesn’t make you lose respect for me. Probably should’ve kept that embarrassing fact to myself. :)

Thanks to ‘White Bear’ for this gem. On a side note, I love that I don’t even have to request photoshop submissions anymore.
