More from My Read All About It Interview!



Last Week I spent the day at the Radiovision Network's studios for my Read All About It Interview with host Stefani Milan, and obviously, we talked about books, talked with our hands too much - and yes, I wore all black! 



A half hour really isn't enough time to talk about books, is it? Stefani had some great questions for me on the writing craft, inspirations, and literary marketing. There were a few moments to introduce the new Horror Addicts Guide to Life anthology, too. 

The video isn't out yet, but you can keep up with all of Stefani's guests as well as her book and more from Radiovision!

And what garnered the most attention, you ask? My shoes! The fierce is real.
