New Interview.

I did an interview with Brendan Connell (brendanconnell), the author of The Translation of Father Torturo and the Dr. Black stories (well, actually, it's probably more fair to say he did an interview with me).

It's a different interview than the others I've done, in that Brendan and I did it over msn, mostly. Time differences meant we did a bit over email as well, but still, the overall result is that it's much more like a conversation than me getting a set of questions and answering them, which is what usually happens. Also, we cover a lot of different things. It's about Black Sheep, but we talk about 26Lies, A Year in the City, and America, oddly enough. Brendan's blog is pretty cool, too, so you ought to click, and spend some time there. In fact, to help you lazy livejournal people, I created a feed for you all, since I've got it running through my bloglines account and don't need it. I do this because I am magnificent and beautiful.

Let me admit up front that I'm an idiot. Having said that: how do you create a feed for a non-LJ site? I looked all around "manage friends" and can't figure it out!

have you got a paid account?

you need to have a paid account to do it, and if you do, you go to the browse feeds option in the find section. it's at the bottom of the page.

Ah, a paid account. No wonder. I'm gonna have to upgrade. Sadly, I'll lose all my pretty pretty advertisements.

Maybe you should have someone who didn't buy the acct claim to have done it, and then the real philanthropist would step forward to right matters....

Oh...I guess that wouldn't work now.

Brendan rocks. Love his work - have loved it for some time now. We did a story together once . . .

It went to a now-defunct zine called Neotrope, which had some very cool stuff in it. I was really happy when they took our story, "The Search for Savino". That story was a lot of fun to write, too, now that I think back on it.
