You can catch my interview for Female First (a terrific UK site) by clicking on the image to your right. Come on…you know you’ve had a hankering to see me answer this question:
Female First: So many books have been released about werewolves recently, so what does your book bring to the table that is fresh for readers of this genre?
Leigh Evans: *slow blink*
I just finished reading The Trouble With Fate. I absolutely loved it. It was such a fantastic book. Heidi is a character you can really relate to. She’s flawed; she’s scared, a liar, and a thief. She’s not some perfect beauty with all the answers and I like that. Thank you for writing such a great novel and I can’t wait for the next one. — Samantha
Before I was a writer, I was a reader. Over the course of a few decades, I developed some theories on writers. I thought they were all hugely clever (Leigh Evans got 39% on her final chemistry exam), that words oozed from them (Leigh Evans spends a good portion of the day staring blankly at her monitor), and that they all knew they were gosh-darn awesome. They probably got fan letters in droves. Should I bother to pen one, mine would be buried. Probably read, some five years later, by some intern the writer hired to clear out her email box.
I read your contact form this morning. Still wearing my nightie, one purring cat balanced in my arms, the other doing a parade over my keyboard.
I smiled, feeling gratified and happy. Then, before shambling to the kitchen for a coffee, I hit reply. THAT’s how much I wanted to say, “Hey Samantha, thanks!!”
Sadly, the email bounced. Three times. (Who me? I’m not co-dependent or needy)
Anyhow, here I am, thinking of you again. Some hours later. Today, shall be known as Samantha Sunday:-)
Now, back to deadline hell.
I just took a peek at amazon.com. Not only is THE TROUBLE WITH FATE on sale but so is book that begins six months after Hedi changed the course of Trwobridge’s life–THE THING ABOUT WERES. What’s it about? Homecomings…Why not head over to pre-order it? It will make my editor very happy. And her boss happy. How can you lose? Think of all that good Karma:-)
