It’s been a tough couple of weeks. But enough of my whining.
When I was in Sydney back in September, my friend — the up-and-coming superstar of Angry Robot, Jo Anderton — recommended a visit to the Galaxy Bookshop. There I met a cheery and affable bookseller by the name of Mark Timmony. He generously allowed me to deface some stock, and even wanted to know whether I’d be interested in defacing the store’s blog, too.
Which is how I came to write this guest post for the Galaxy Bookshop Blog. Mark suggested that I write a little bit about the origins of Bitter Seeds and the Milkweed universe. Because I’ve done a few interviews on the subject already, I decided to use the opportunity to talk about an aspect of the project that I haven’t talked about very much. Namely, what I thought the book(s) would be about before I started writing it (them).
Mark didn’t let me off the hook quite so easily, though… My sad attempt to provide clever and interesting answers to his questions can be found here.
