How to enjoy the love of your life without killing it :) - AMA

Seriously - how many of us "struggling" (is there any other kind?) writers out there feel like throttling our writing gene all the time but would slit our wrists if we ever stopped to put pen to paper or fingertips to keyboard?

I know I'm flat out trying to maddeningly, I mean harmoniously blend my current work, family time and incessant, pathological need to continue to write during the week, I don't have time for a real soul mate. Not that I'm complaining - eharmony is brutal - I attest this from personal experience.

So I thought in celebration of the near release of the second book in my vampire (paranormal romance, cultural heritage, diversity-ridden) The Last True Blood series, WereVamp, we'd have an AMA about the writing journey and my experiences as a diverse author. I promise some joy, a bit of laughter, more than enough cursing the written word, and far too many tears!

BYO - alcohol (but I encourage drinking responsibly for the over 18's), loads of coffee for those who aren't quite there yet (or you're like me and never got over milkshakes), your sense of humour because really how else are we supposed to get through this? and pocket knives (for slicing open the chip packets. Geez guys, sliting our wrists was a metaphor).

It should be awesome. Or at least awesome-ish. Alright, full disclosure, it'll keep us busy for half an hour, okay?

You can also get my first book, The Last True Blood FREE for a couple of days to celebrate the release of my second one in the series, WereVamp on Friday. So go on, what's the harm - it's free peeps! :)
