A few nights ago I was a guest on a podcast for the first time in about two years. When I originally released Disease I did a slew of them, but since then I’ve avoided guesting on one like the plague. To be perfectly honest, it’s not like anyone was beating down my door to have me on their show anyway, but I still wasn’t keen to get in the recording seat.
It’s always nerve wracking to send a book out for review. As a reviewer myself, I’m keenly aware of the critical eyes that search out flaws in writing like a pig sniffs truffles. This is the way it should be. My writing has already been though the sniff test on my end… but sending it out to be tested by someone another’s truffle sniffer inevitably has me biting my nails.
