Talking About Writing, 8/29/08

Hey there – I’m in Lexington. Writing in a coffee shop. Don’t worry, I’m not fooling anyone.

On the subject of writing, I did an interview with the site Eat, Sleep, Publish, talking about the state of publishing and whether writers will continue to make a living in the future (short answer: Sure hope so). The interview is here.

  1. Yeah, well, I don’t think you’re too easily fooled, Toby.

    OT, I just finished Sly Mongoose last night (actually, early this morning). Man, that Pepper is one serious badass!

  2. On the subject of making a living writing books, I was wondering if you had an opinion on what the publishers are doing to our Canadian friends, John?

    I picked up a copy of The Last Colony last week and was startled to notice that it’s listed at US$8 in the US and CDN$10 in Canada. And yet the Canadian dollar has been equal to or stronger than the American all year. Any thoughts, or is that just not your bailiwick.

    P.S. I enjoyed the book immensely.

  3. Oh hell–I’m kinda nervous to go read the interview for fear that it’ll make my heart hurt. I’ll do anything to avoid returning to a cubicle. However, the state of some of the writing that I see out in the wild reassures me that, in one way or another, the world will always need peeps like us.
