Once again, the worldbuilding is superb, the characters fully fleshed out and intriguing, the battles riveting, and the edge-of-the seat suspense compelling.

In Search of the Write Space

Welcome to a new kind of spotlight! “In Search of the Write Space” is an ongoing series on my blog that features authors (and other publishing industry professionals) in a unique way, offering readers and fans an exciting glimpse into their creative lives.

The Idea

As a lifelong reader and fan, I’ve always loved interviews with my favorite authors and editors. I’m fascinated by the different ways writers approach the creative process, and how they can be so similar–and so vastly different–to my own process. But as I dove into promotion for my own books, I discovered that many interviews draw on the same questions over and over, which can get repetitive for fans… and definitely repetitive for the authors! So I started thinking about other ways to showcase authors, and still give fans a window into the endlessly unique ways writers approach their stories.

Terry Pratchett at his deskFor all that I’m a writer, I do love images and pictures. There’s definitely truth to the old adage that a picture’s worth a thousand words! So when I started thinking about different ways to approach spotlighting authors and other publishing folks, my very first thought was to use pictures. I’ve always been fascinated by the workspaces authors use. Some of them I covet myself, others I know could never work for me–both are equally hypnotic.

There’s a sort of voyeuristic pleasure in glimpsing someone’s study or private office, and when that someone happens to be an author, you can’t help but imagine the stories that come to life in that space!

The Feature

“In Search of the Write Space” is a place for authors to share their writing setups–their desks, their bookshelves, where they read, where they find inspiration. Each post contains several images from the author, revealing details about their workspaces and their creative processes as they go. The idea is to rely on the pictures, with only sparse captions for context. Fans are encouraged to share the pictures on Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, and any other social network that grabs their fancy, so long as they link back to the “Write Space” post and make sure they credit the picture to the author! It’s all about spreading the word, and interesting pictures can travel halfway around the world before an interview answer is putting on its shoes (to mis-paraphrase a certain author).
