About the book:
What's been one of the most exciting moments in your journey to publication?
Seeing my cover! I wasn't expecting it to be a night scene, but I was so happy with how it turned out, particularly since I am a big fan of midnight blue skies sprinkled with stars. I am very grateful to the cover artist and designer for creating such a lovely book.
Is there anything you can't write without?
I'd definitely miss my copious mugs of tea if I had to do without them! But the thing that would really give me trouble would be giving up my computer. Longhand seems so sloooow now. Plus, I love having Google Image Search only a click away.
When stuck on a story which do you choose: write make-out scene or explode something?
Explode something! Though doing both would be even better....
Can you share a favorite line you've written either in this book or a WIP?
I particularly like the first line of FORTUNE'S FOLLY:
Life would have been much easier if I believed in fairy tales.
Finally: pro fast zombie or anti fast zombies?
As long as they don't talk (groaning is okay) it's okay with me. Also no romantic, cuddly zombies unless it's Fido.
I asked Deva if she'd be willing to share a post discussing her publication journey:
For those interested in reading about my "publication journey", I talk about it in my website FAQ page (third question down): http://devafagan.com/faq/ or for all the nitty-gritty I have a "fortune's folly" tag on a bunch of my livejournal entries so you can find the postings back in 2003 when I was writing the first draft for NaNoWriMo.
