I’m over at Nuala Ní Chonchúir’s blog today, on the final stop of my Looking Out of Broken Windows blog tour, talking about finding titles, finding time to write, fitting stories together and the more surreal elements of my short fiction. The questions were challenging and thought-provoking and I hope my answers give some insight into the how and why of what I write. Plus there’s a very special book trailer included in the post that shows what my stories would look like if they were comic books. Check out the post here.
So that was the blog tour. If you commented on one of the posts check back here on April 6th to see if your name was plucked from the hat as winner of the signed copy I’m giving away as part of the tour.
