An Interview with Poe Casavant

May 1, 2019, Author: Kristin Jacques

Introductions please! Tell us about your book! What inspired your main character? Was the writing process pure agony or inspired brilliance? Wolf Smoke was inspired by my grandfather’s old VHS tape of Rollerball. That movie was so quintessentially seventies; the hair, the clothes, the roller skating! While the film had its quirks, the idea of […]

April 6, 2019, Author: Kristin Jacques

With a heavy heart and heavier hand, I took Zombies vs Aliens off of Amazon this morning. This book has been on one hell of a journey but I don’t think the mammoth scene that is Amazon is the right place for Li and her band of oddities. Not sure it ever was. That being […]

Tune In Tuesday #5: Under Pressure

December 4, 2018, Author: Kristin Jacques

  My weekly posting goal went off the rails in October. October was a rough month. I didn’t let myself properly recover from a rather terrible summer, attempted to jump right in to a truckload of work, and floundered hard midway through the month. So I gave myself time to breathe.

A big fat update

May 19, 2018, Author: Kristin Jacques

Now, here I went and managed to post every day for the month of March and then go radio silent as all the stuff hits at once. I had every intention of doing an occasional detailed post about all the neat stuff happening right now but I’ve been burning the reserve midnight oil and some […]

31 Days of Author Madness: Elicia Hyder

March 9, 2018, Author: Kristin Jacques

The Fiver 1. What is your writing process? I wish I had a normal “writing process.” I would probably be much more productive! Ha! But we have a large family and life often gets in the way, so I grab my writing time in snippets whenever I can. My most productive writing days are when […]
