Flights of Fancy

My First Interview!

One of the coolest things about joining Rachael Harrie’s Writers Platform-Building Campaign are the number of new bloggers and friends that I’ve met. There’s a great community vibe going around the interwebz, fostered by the generosity and enthusiasm from all of the #writecampaign participants.

Along those lines, writer and blogger Michael McDuffie has been posting a series of interviews with our fellow campaigners, showcasing our work and digging a bit deeper into what makes us “tick.” Michael’s a great guy; he’s currently working on the next installment of his serial, Those Who Die Young. I’ve just started part one, “Shelter From the Storm,” and I highly recommend it.

Over the past couple of weeks, he’s profiled Sarah Ketley and her fantastic #authorlove initiative, as well as Liza Kane, who discusses her blogging and writing exploits.

I’m his third interviewee, and you can check out our exchange here. I talk a bit about my pen name, my view on social media, and why I love fantasy and steampunk. This was my very first author interview experience, and it was a total blast (it made me feel all professional, like a “real” writer, lol). Thanks again for the chance to share a bit more about myself and my work, Michael!


  1. Hey Lena, it’s really cool you got to do an interview. Your advice on how to dive in to social media is nice, too, since it can be overwhelming.

    • Thanks, Matt, and I’m glad you found the advice useful. I really am, of course, indebted to people like Roni Loren, who have been saying very smart things about burnout, etc. After finding myself a little swamped, though, I realized how important it is for others to realize that they don’t have to tackle every social media site on the planet. 😀

  2. I’m following Michael now, so thanks, and congratulations on your interview 🙂

  3. Hi Lena,

    Thanks for the shout out!
    Glad you are keen on the AuthorLove idea. The website launches soon… very exciting. I really want to try and help out new authors as much as I can. See how we go.

    I’m just about ready to start my 1st Steampunk novel for NaNoWriMo this year. Getting excited about that as well..

    And YES Rachael Harrie’s Campaign is just simply awesomness itself.

    Have a great day,

    Sarah Ketley

  4. Cool interview! I enjoyed reading about your foray into social media – I have to admit I was reluctant too because it can be such a time-suck.
