ROMANCE WEEKLY - THE PLOT SICKENS

This week we are handling three questions and they come from the ever wonderful JJ Devine.

I am wedged between two of my favorite ladies, the left and right hemisphere's of my brain - Xio Axelrod who is just before me and Jo Richardson who follows this blog.

You’re moving right along with a storyline and suddenly it takes an unexpected twist. Do you go with the flow and follow where the twist leads you or do you conform your story to your way?

Whoa, stop right there with that plotters nightmare you've just put forward. If my story twists, it's because I **gasp** have not plotted it comprehensively enough. I try and wrangle my twists and turns into submission before I write Chapter 1, and in that plotting process I often find a nice little garden path of go down that I didn't necessarily see before. Character drives plot for me and I tend to let them have the last word.

What time of year is your Best time for writing? Winter, Summer, Fall, Spring?

Don't really have a best time of year. In the summer, however, my kids tend to be around and seem to regard the door to my writing cave as a challenge to be overcome.

When looking for a publisher do you choose a traditional press, indie route, or one that does both ebook and print?

I went the traditional route. My first publisher was a digital only. My medievals are published through Lyrical (Kensington) which is e-books. My contemporaries are to be published by Kensington (Zebra) and will be available in paperback and ebook. I am in awe of people who take that brave step into self-publishing, but the traditional route fit me and my risk averse nature better.

Thanks to Xio Axelrod for leading you here and don't miss out on hopping over to see Jo Richardson.
