Do you follow authors across genres? If there is an author you love will you read them no matter what they’re writing?
Kim: I’m not sure. Even if I love an author, it also depends on whether this other genre piece of theirs has a plot that I’d find interesting. As of right now, I don’t have an author who I’d read across genres. But that’s also because the opportunity hasn’t presented itself in a suitable way. Perhaps one day.
Cyn: I think I would follow authors across genres for the most part.
What made you want to blog and what unique traits do you feel you bring to the blogosphere?
Cyn: I don’t think I have much in the area of unique traits that I bring to the blogoshpere, I just like to grumble my thoughts on things haha.
Do you try to stay objective about your subjects or do you prefer to be very passionate and opinionated?
Cyn: Everyone definitely has their own opinion about everything, I like to think I strive for a balance between the two. I try to be objective, because while I may not like something for one reason, another might like it for the that very same reason. No reason, another person should miss out on something just because I didn’t like it. That also doesn’t mean that I can’t express why I like or dislike a subject without passionate.
In March I embarked on a whole new journey in breaking down my next novel, THE DOUBLE LIFE OF INCORPORATE THINGS, into free segments on my blog with an optional donate button, http://leannareneebooks.
blogspot.com – and to also offer audio segments in podcasts, with the full novel completed and available in print and across digital platforms by the end of the month. I’d love to know if readers and bloggers like you are interested in this sort of content from authors. Does the idea of serialization appeal to you? I write historical fantasy set in the Victorian era, the fiction of the 19th century was often serialized in magazines like Charles Dickens’ “Household Words” – what do you think of something similar being done via today’s modern technologies?
Kim: I love this idea. It’s a fresh take on an old method and I think it could work out well. Kind of reminds of how in Japan they do “cell phone novels”. Where the author would update chapter by chapter and it would be available to read on their cellphones. (Japanese people use their cells for so much, it’s amazing how much cooler they are than here.)
