Dragon Page Radio Air Dates

By Holly Lisle

Here are the air dates for the interview I did with Dragon Page:

Summer Brooks, producer: Mike says that the show with your interview will go out the week of September 26, which means that it’ll be available for download on the 26th, and will air on XM Satellite Channel 163 on October 2nd.

Along with the radio interview, I did a special segment that will only air on XM, discussing the writers’ community, my website, and the folks who read my books.

Gasp, Gasp, Pant, Pant. I Survived.

By Holly Lisle

Interview is done, I am still breathing. Michael and Evo were great.

I have no idea how I was, but I now know exactly how that deer in the headlights feels. Oh, boy.

I haven’t done any public speaking in years. I’d forgotten how scary it is.

Dragon Page Interview Updates

By Holly Lisle

Should have done this to begin with, but here are some stations that carry the broadcast, along with dates and times.

Also, the comments program at the site really hates my browser. Or my Mac. Or something.

:ouch:

If I could delete the multiple copies of my replies, I would.

TALYN Up at Dragonpage

By Holly Lisle

Dragonpage, where I’ll be doing the interview, has logged Talyn into the library. With open comments. So I’ll check in over there for the next couple of days prior to the interview, to field questions or discuss story points — if you have something you like to ask, drop by.

Interview Coming Up on Dragonpage

By Holly Lisle

I’ll be talking about TALYN with Michael and Evo on Dragonpage this Saturday. I’m not sure when the interview will post, but I’m delighted to have the opportunity to chat about the book with them for a while. And I can highly recommend the other interviews on the site.

If you don’t have your own podcast reader (I don’t, for example), just click the “PupuPlayer Free” link attached to the interview you want to hear. It’s a content streamer, and worked flawlessly on my Mac — guessing it will work equally well on other platforms.

Pausing to Think

By Holly Lisle

Novel outline is going well, but I needed a break, so I surfed. Douglas Hoffman gave a nice review of Last Girl Dancing; Jcop wants to know where the fourth book in the WORLD GATES series is (Hint: When I’m howlingly successful, the publisher will probably want the last four planned books. Meantime, I did the best I could to give the series closure); Danjel Bout offers a clear look at his location, a place as alien as the surface of Mars; Stuart McBride rants well on an example of breathtaking responsibility avoidance; Zette Gifford (who’s now just shy of 8000 writers in the FM Writers’ Community), offers some insight into working with writers; Carter offers an essay on Us vs. Not-Us (my take on the same issue is Common Ground: Holding Communities Together, plus the entire novel Talyn. This is a subject that compels and fascinates me.

First time I’ve had a chances to look at other folks’ weblogs in a couple of weeks, and it was shorter than I would have wished. Deadlines compel, and one of the migraines that have been hovering and diving for the last couple of weeks is hovering now.

Wow!

By Holly Lisle

From Michelle Rowan’s blog:

” …. at the Prism awards/editor agent panel, Anna Genoese (sp?) from TOR used Talyn as an example of the perfect fantasy romance novel…one that grabbed her attention from the very first sentence. She said to read that to know what she’s looking for in submissions. So, kudos!”

Yes, this is shameless. Yes, I am shameless for quoting it. But … reading that makes me ludicrously, ridiculously, shamelessly, deliriously happy. I have written a book that is being used by my editor as the example of what she wants.

[floating off in a little cloud of happiness]

SURPRISE!!!

By Holly Lisle

talyn_coverTake a look at Talyn‘s new cover. I received a bindery copy today, courtesy of Anna Genoese, and it’s GORGEOUS!

And, omigawd, the maps in the interior are amazing. And it smells good. It’s heavy. The paper feels rich and velvet-edged.

God, but I’m happy with this book. Tor really did it right.
