Know that everyone is acquainted with both series, let's get started with the interview to find out what Deborah's been up to since we last spoke with her….
Book Monster Reviews/LITERAL ADDICTION: Hi Deborah! Welcome Back!! We're so happy to have you with us again and to find out what's new with you.
Deborah: Well, thanks so much for inviting me. It was a lot of fun last time, which is a good reason to visit again. :-)
Book Monster Reviews/LITERAL ADDICTION: Since you're a repeat offender and we already asked you our staple questions the first time around, we're going to mix things up a bit and ask some random questions…
Q1): What was the first thing that popped into your head when you woke up this morning?
Q2): If you had the opportunity to spend the day with anyone of your choosing (dead or alive), who would you pick and what would you do?
Deborah: Tough choice. Either I would decide to hang out with Eleanor of Aquitaine or J.R.R. Tolkien or Freddie Mercury. Any one of them probably had a lot of great stories to tell - and I would be listening!
Q4): What are 3 things that never fail to make you smile and 3 things that never fail to piss you off?
1/ Rudeness. I would say “unnecessary rudeness” but my mom insists that all rudeness is unnecessary. (I like that.)
2/ Bad weather. I like a good lightning storm and I don’t mind snow. But when it gets nasty, windy, cold, damp and blustery and stays that way, feh, I don’t like it. The Queen Bee doesn’t like it either and we both get grumpy when we can’t go walking. We sit in the kitchen with the fire on and snarl in harmony.
3/ Revising. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a scene that needs to be chopped and rewritten or a piece of knitting that needs to be ripped out and knit again, revising and reworking is always a bit of a disappointment. Invariably, the project ends up better, though, so that makes it worth the trauma.
Q6): I (Carla), come up with my best ideas while I'm trying to fall asleep. When or where do you come up with your best ideas?
Deborah: In the shower. It’s like magic.
Book Monster Reviews/LITERAL ADDICTION: Know we'd like to ask you some questions about The Dragon Diaries and Dragonfire series.
Q7): For those not familiar with books, can you give us a general background on what both series are about?
Q8): We know that "Blazing the Trail" is coming out in June 2012. What do you have planned for The Dragon Diaries series after that book?
Deborah: Right now, there is no firm plan after BLAZING THE TRAIL. My editor and I are talking about possibilities and I would guess that we’ll make some choices in the first quarter of 2012. Stay tuned!
Q9): "Flashfire" the 7th book in the Dragonfire series will be coming out next month. What's next in the series after this release? How many more books are planned and who's book will be next?
Q10): If you could leave your readers with one legacy, what would you want it to be?
Deborah: I love when readers say they can count on a book by me, no matter what the genre or subgenre. That trust is a really special bond to have with readers, and it’s one that I never want to betray. It’s really important to me to make each book the best it can be, so I love hearing from readers that they love the books.
Book Monster Reviews/LITERAL ADDICTION: Deborah, thank you so much for coming back to hang out with us again. We hope to have you back again in 2012. We wish you a wonderful holiday and a happy and healthy new year.
Deborah: Thank you so much for inviting me back again! I hope that both of you and everyone who follows your blogs has a wonderful holiday season, and wish everyone the best for 2012.
