Who says Friday the thirteenth is unlucky? Not me.
Today, after I received e-mails directing me to two blogs with author interviews, I felt very lucky--and smart--after reading the authors' answers.
* If are the superstitious type, or if you like paranormal suspense novels, check out author Sandra Carrington-Smith's interview over on Sheree Nielsen's Warm Fuzzies blog. Sheree asks Carrington-Smith five questions, including her thoughts on what it takes to be a good writer.
* If you're feeling really lucky, you could win a copy of a middle-grade historical fiction novel. Over on From the Mixed Up Files you will find an interview with historical fiction writer Clara Gillow Clark. If you leave a comment, you have a chance to win an
autographed copy one of Clara's books. I've read Secrets of Greymoor and thoroughly enjoyed it! Reading Clara's interview can also make you feel smart. Today I learned that if you're writing about your childhood, if it occurred before 1970, it's considered historical fiction. That means my entire childhood and teen years are historical fiction. Who knew?
So, take a chance; learn from some successful writers--and you might win an entertaining book!
