Something new – Author Interviews

Here’s my new blog plan. I’ll be inviting local authors to sit for an interview and share their road to publishing successes or pitfalls with you. I’m just learning to handle the camera, the microphone and, well, me, on camera and with a microphone (it isn’t pretty) so please, bear with me while I learn.  With all my new toys; camera, etc., I feel like I did a couple weeks ago in the Netherlands at a Dutch village where they had go carts. Couldn’t get that to work either.  Kept driving in circles.

Okay, so if you can get past my eye rolling, shaking my head, and one incident with my out of control elbow on screen you’ll enjoy this interview with new author Scott Driscoll whose debut novel, Better You Go Home, was released two weeks ago. And yes, at this point you can pretty much assume I’m the worst interviewer of all time. I’ll get better. I promise. So cringe-worthy. But Scott managed to hang in there and share some insights for writers of all genres. Watch the interview here.

    Mindy, the content is interesting and useful. The presentation/mechanical skill is already completely watchable. Your self-deprecatory introduction was funny though!

      Ha! I can barely look at it. I was a mess, but I’ll work on that. All I can do is laugh. Thanks for watching.

    Wow, Mindy, what an exciting new project. I loved the interview, the presentation of the book, the essentials of scene writing presented, the next project. I’m ordering the book right now. And you did a great job. I’m looking forward to your next installment.
