And interview with me about how to write MG Fantasy.

Wait! Who Said That?
Tips on handling multiple speakers (three or more) in the same scene.

ETA: And if you're not sick of me yet, HarperCollins just posted a podcast of me talking a little about Blue Fire, then reading an excerpt from the book. There are also lots of other authors to hear from there as well.


  1. Mine is up, Janice. A little late, but I think Blogger hates me today. :)

  2. Got it, thanks! And no worries. I've had all kinds of weird things happen with the new version. Think they're still working out the kinks.

  3. Great posts. All your blog posts have been so helpful. I printed out the outline one for future reference.

  4. Yay, thanks for the link! Loved interviewing you! :D

    Hope the contest adds some extra love too! ^.^

  5. Thanks! I wasn't sure how the tour would go, but it seems to be going well so far.

  6. You are one busy lady, Janice! I hopped over from Buffy's blog. Nice job and best wishes with your newest book. :)

  7. Very cool! I also saw the youtube clip with you answering questions. It was fun to watch you talk about your story and it's characters. You can see the love you have for it all. I think I even saw a small twinkle in your eye LOL. Congrats again and I hope you are having tons of fun with this blog tour and any other events related to the release of Blue Fire.

  8. Thanks! And wlecome to the blog, Sharon!

    Melanie, your comment made all the work worth it :) You'd think five minutes would record in like, five minutes, but I didn't want to cut it (it would look choppy) so I kept at it until I did it all in one take. It took over an hour if you can believe it.

    Having a great time with the release stuff!
