Yesterday, I had the privilege of participating in a Meet the Author event on Dreamspinner Press's Facebook Page
. in order to promote The Demon Catcher
. The heart of this event was readers (and potential readers) posing interview questions for me -- I got some great questions, and hopefully, I gave them the answers they deserve. So that it doesn't get lost beneath the inevitable Facebook updates, I'm reposting the interview here -- along with answers to one or two questions that I missed yesterday.
Feel free to pose more questions in comments (anon commenting is enabled).
