Discussing Box of Rain with John Byck on his podcast made me realize just how much family is an underlying theme in the book.
John Byck from WritersAlive.com was one of the first people to interview me when Painted Black was published, so I was glad of an opportunity to revisit his podcast ansd talk about Box of Rain and the Street Stories series.
We also discuss the writing process, and the issues of homelessness and families. I hope you enjoy.
John Byk of Writers Alive has been on my mailing list since he did a podcast interview of me for the release of Painted Black back in 2011. When he received my latest notice about Box of Rain being released in print later this month, he contacted me to ask if I would be interested in doing another interview.
Of course I said yes! My 2011 appearance on his show was fun and an invaluable opportunity. He was a great host and made the live interview–which was my first ever as a published author–a great experience. I expect this one will be as well. I’ll post here whenever we get a date set up.
In addition, John offered to do a review of Box of Rain. In his role as an author interviewer, he has picked up quite a few review followers on Goodreads, so being reviewed by him will mean tremendous exposure. I am grateful for his interest and look forward to hearing what he thinks of the book.
