Today was a very good day!
I emailed around seven or eight authors today (trying to set up interviews), and got three replies; one from an email that I sent last week, and two from emails I sent today.
The first reply came from Jo Graham, author of Black Ships, agreeing to the interview! So now I’ve got to finish Acacia, get that review and the interview with David Durham done and posted, and then read Black Ships so I can get that review and interview posted. 🙂
The second reply came from none other that one of the most legendary and influential figures in SF ever, Dr. Ben Bova! He kindly agreed to an interview (gave me a date that would suit him), so you can all expect that soon, too. 🙂
The third reply came from Shawn Speakman, and if you don’t know who that is, go check out www.terrybrooks.net; Shawn’s the head honcho there, and a published author in his own right. I posted a question on the ‘Ask Terry’ portion of the site, querying the possibility of an interview with Terry Brooks, and Shawn replied and laid out for me what I need to do, so hold thumbs for that!
Other news: I’ve queried a few authors for interviews, not all of which will be posted on this blog (some authors write in genres other than SF & Fantasy), but as soon as I’ve got confirmation of the interviews (and the reviews (if any) that precede them) I’ll let you all know here.
Suffice it to say that things are picking up speed here folks!
