Leicester Review of Books had a great interview posted on their blog and did an awful lot of promotion for my tour, including posting the interview at Oh My News International. Thank you especially to Ambrose Musiyawa who was my link to the blog and did all the work.
Today, I’ll be stopping at Robert Runté’s blog, I’m Not Boring You, Am I? Robert and I spent a long time chatting (he asked questions, I answered them), which will result in several installments of our conversation during the day. He’s asked some pretty tough questions, and not only about the book, but about publishing, the book tour itself, and some in-depth questions about the creative process I went through writing Synergy. I think you’ll find it quite interesting.
Here’s a bit about Robert:
Robert Runté is an associate professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Lethbridge, Alberta. He was co-editor (with Yves Meynard) of Tesseracts 5, an anthology of Canadian science fiction and fantasy and is currently editing a university textbook on Canadian SF. He was the founding editor of Neology; New Canadian Fandom; and Communique (the SF Canada newsletter), and a former member of the editorial boards of The Monthly Monthly, On Spec Magazine, and the Tesseract Books imprint of the Books Collective. He was also a founding Board member of both NonCon and ConText SF conventions; a past president of ESFCAS; and Fan GoH at Imagine (Victoria), V-Con 9 (Vancouver) and the 52nd WorldCon (Winnipeg). He has won two Aurora Awards for his promotion of Canadian SF.
