Me Interviewing Joe Hill for Booktalk Nation: The Video

Here you go. It’s an hour of Joe and me talking about writing, books, axes, beards and corgis. You don’t want to miss it. And now you don’t have to.

Horribly off-topic

[And thus deleted because it is off topic, and the link is to a site of exceptional stupidity in any event. But it’s adorable to know the dude is still mancrushing on me so damn hard – JS]

Joe Hill seems like a cool guy! I was kind of meh on Heart-Shaped Box, but Horns was no-holds-barred great. I’ll think I’ll schedule this one for right after finals week.

Interested to see Joe is going heavy illo in NOS4A2. I’m pondering doing something similar with my genre novel, given that in an e-publishing environment there’s not the usual cost concerns. I agree with his feeling that illustration isn;t just for kiddie books.

Hit enter too fast. The discussion of unlikable protagoists made me smile. I had a row with an agent over a unlikable lead – who was supposed to be, HAD to be, largely unlikable. I think readers deal with that just fine – it’s editors and agents that have issues with heroes with feet of clay.
And thank you for the character > genre conventions confirmation.
