We Are Now Open to Questions

As an early Christmas present, and in honor of tomorrow being my 75th post, I decided I would open up this here blog to questions from my loyal readers (all 30 of you).

I'm willing to answer practically anything, which will have the honor of tomorrow becoming post number 75. If there are a lot of questions, I might even make this a running series (I can hear the groans now).

So tell me, loyal readers, what do you want to know?

Here comes the smartass Bane:

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck, could a woodchuck chuck wood?

Congrats on 74.

Bane --

A chuckle. :)

Hey! You're one post ahead of me! We should have a contest to see who gets to 100 fastest. :)

What do I want to know? Hmmm...

If you sold your first book and got an advance of $7,000 (which you'll earn through in no time since your book has landed on the NYT Bestseller List), how would you spend that $7,000?

I'm thinking some frivolity would be in order.

What is the square root of muffins?


Do you like hazelnuts?

Stephanie Thornton said...

Man, those two are smart asses, aren't they? ;)

L. T. Host said...

Ok, Stephanie, way to guilt trip me :)

Fine, a serious question then, but-- I'd still like answers to the other two!

What inspired you to write steampunk? What do you like most about it?

Renee Pinner said...

You work a lot, and you write. So, do you have time for any other activities/hobbies?
How is married life? All that you expected?
What is your favorite childhood memory?

Matthew Delman said...

Why do you think I read their blogs, Stephanie?

Ooo, good questions folks. I'll leave the suspense until tomorrow for which ones I answer though. ;)

* Yes I know I'm evil. That's the fun of being a writer.

I want to know if you write anything other than steampunk. If so, do you research as much for the other genre? As you know, I'm fascinated by the amount of research you do. I've cut my blogging time back to M-W-F, but I'll be stopping by to see the answers to all these questions, smart ass ones and all.

I don't know you that well, so I've got some basic writerly questions:

* How far along is Callarion at Night? How long have you been working on it?
* Is CaN your first novel-sized writing? What other fiction have you written, if any?
* What are you thinking about writing next (if at all)?

And other basic questions:

* Favorite book? Favorite video game?
* Ninjas or pirates? (Yes, that question).
