I usually shy away from telephones with the same aversion that vampires display toward garlic, but when Karen Burnham asked me if I wanted to do a roundtable with Stina Leicht, I couldn't resist.
I'm a big fan of Stina's work, so a lot of those long pauses that poor Karen had to edit were due to me waiting for my captioning to catch up. I really wanted to see what Stina had to say.
Karen is an awesome interviewer and she made the whole thing so much fun, we forgot we were be recorded.
I ask that you forgive one thing: It was getting late in the evening and I'd been up since 5:30 a.m. I had read Publisher's Lunch earlier in the day about the dispute with Amazon, but I couldn't recall the name of IPG (Indpendent Publishing Group). My tried brain kept trying to tell me it was IBG. So that is what I was babbling about. (As an aside, the SFWA has made this request regarding Amazon and I suggest you read this important post about how SFWA is redirecting Amazon.com links.)
If you want to hear what I sound like, thick Southern accent and all, here is the link to the Locus Roundtable Teresa Frohock and Stina Leicht in Conversation.
And thanks again to Karen for being so brave and asking me to participate! Stina and I hit it off and I see late nights full of talk at future cons.
