It's Wednesday. Let's go walkabout.
(I'm bringing along a few of my mates as I wander through the vast wilderness of the publishing industry, learning the ins and outs, and having a grand adventure.)

Walkabout, Week 43:

Genre classifications can be tough. Knowing precisely where a novel fits on the genre spectrum is not always easy. So I consulted an expert and compiled this fail-proof description of various genres as explained by a 7 year old.

Enjoy.

  • Horror - "If the good guys are dying, especially if they're dying with lots of blood and scary stuff, that's horror."
  • Fantasy - "Fantasy is the books with all the made-up stuff, like animals that talk like people and people that look like animals and that stuff."
  • Science Fiction - "If the book isn't true, but it has science, that's science fiction. If it has science and it is true, then that's a school book, and that's boring."
  • Romance - "That one's easy. If there's kissing, it's romance. If there's more kissing than talking, that's gross romance."
  • Historical - "Historical means the people are really old and they live in really old places. Sometimes they talk funny. And they always wear weird clothes."
  • Children's/Middle Grade/Young Adult - "That one's tricky. You know it's a kids' book if there's not a lot of dying or kissing or bad words. But the teenager books have dying and kissing and bad words, just not as much as the grown-up books, but sometimes more... like if there are vampires. Vampires kiss a lot, even more than dying, but I don't know if they say bad words. I just read the children's stuff."
  • Mystery - "If you don't understand it, it's mystery."



Don't forget to come back for I Need Friends Friday!

Friday, June 25, 2010



Every Friday I interview a different person and share that interview with you. Perhaps they will be a fellow-author. Perhaps one of my neighbors. Maybe the bagger at the grocery store. A member of my family. A follower of this blog. Maybe it will be you! Hey, it could happen.

In honor of I Need Friends Friday receiving the breath of life, today we will be revisiting the original INFF interview, the one in which I interviewed... myself. Next week INFF will be back with brand new interviews!!

SME: Hello, Sarah M. Eden. Welcome to “I Need Friends” Friday.

Sarah: Thank you. I am thrilled to be part of this endeavor.

SME: You're an author, right?

Sarah: I am.

SME: Do you ever, like, stand in front of the mirror and look at yourself and think, "Holy Crumb-ola. I'm an author. When did that happen? Aren't authors supposed to be really cool or interesting?"

Sarah: Who would do something like that?

SME: *nervous cough* Next question. How long have you been writing?

Sarah: Approximately three years now.

SME: Really? I learned to write in, like, Kindergarten.

Sarah: Oh. I thought you meant, when did I begin writing novels?

SME: That's a good question, too. I'm gonna write that down for the next time I interview an author.

So, you've been writing novels for three years. How many have you written?


Sarah: I have one title currently available (That's right. A link allowing interviewee to do a little shameless self-promotion in exchange for enduring this interview. Keep that in mind, in case you're interested in participating). And there are a whole bunch of others that are out-of-print.

SME: Will they always be out-of-print?

Sarah: That, I don't know.

SME: *waits in silent anticipation*

Sarah: Next question, please.

SME: What's your favorite continent?

Sarah: My favorite continent?

SME: Yeah. Everyone has a favorite continent.

Sarah: I suppose I like North America.

SME: I'm a fan, too. North America is great. It's definitely in my top seven.

Sarah: You know, this is kind of a strange interview. I mean, "What is your favorite continent?" Who asks that in an interview?

SME: It's a valid question.

Sarah: Do you have any normal questions?

SME: What exactly was it about the
title/graphic
of the INFF segment ------->
that led you to believe this would be normal?

Sarah: Point taken.


SME: Alright. Welcome to the portion of the interview where I ask my new friend about something really interesting they are working on/involved in/learning about/dreaming of doing someday.
Sarah, because you are an author, I'm going to ask you about your Work In Progress - known in the biz as your "WIP." The snazzy title for this segment?



*cue "Whip It" by Devo. "You must whip it. Whip it. Whip it good."


Sarah: That is pretty lame.

SME: Lame, but funny. So, how's the WIP?

Sarah: Coming along pretty well. I am currently editing A FORLORN HOPE, which is book five in the Jonquil Brothers Series (another link of self-promotion). This story centers on Stanley Jonquil, who has only just returned from five years of fighting in the Napoleonic Wars, and his struggle to find peace and solace after witnessing so much suffering and devastation. *update--this book was finished, and it is awesome, but it's currently on the back burner*

SME: There's got to be a lady involved, though. Your stories are romances.

Sarah: Of course there's a lady.

SME: Then why didn't you say so?

Sarah: *starting to look a little annoyed* During a brief period of recuperation at home, Stanley met and fell in love with Marjie Kendrick, the younger sister of the lady his oldest brother would eventually fall in love with and marry.

SME: That sounds a little complicated.

Sarah: Try to keep up. So Stanley is in love with his sister-in-law's little sister-

SME: Is that even legal?

Sarah: They aren't actually related.

SME: Hey, isn't that a line from a movie?

Sarah: *shakes her head in apparent frustration* Anyway. My WIP, I think, is a really good book and I'm excited for it to come out.

SME: If a reader hasn't read the other Jonquil Books, will they be frustrated and throw the book against a wall because they'll be so lost and confused and then curse you and all your books - past, current and future - as the work of an incompetent storyteller and maniacal torturer of readers?

Sarah: What is that even supposed to mean?

SME: Try to keep up. Will new readers be able to follow the story even if they haven't read the other Jonquil books?

Sarah: Certainly. All of my books are written so that a reader could jump in anywhere, read them in any order and not be confused.

SME: Do you have a release date, yet?

Sarah: Nope.

SME: Now on to the portion of the interview where I draw a portrait of my new friend.

Sarah: A portrait? Are you an artist?

SME: *laughs* No.

Several minutes of awkward silence while SME labors over a pad of drawing paper.

SME: What do you think? ----->

Sarah: It's a stick figure.

SME: Yeah. That's all I know how to draw.

Sarah: With shoes.

SME: Shoes are important. I drew you wearing Airwalks. I hope that's okay.

Sarah: Sure. Um, I look a little ticked-off in that drawing.

SME: You look a little ticked-off in person.

Sarah: I think you need to work on being a more professional interviewer.

SME: Maybe you need to work on being a more professional interviewee!

Sarah: This interview may not be the best way to encourage people to participate in your little "I Need Friends" gimmick.

SME: Nah. I think everyone understands that when a person interviews *ahem* themself that things can get a little *ahem* awkward.

Sarah: True.

SME: I would be much nicer to future interviewees.

Sarah: And less abnormal?

SME: I make no guarantees.

Sarah: *sighs*

SME: Our time is almost up.

Sarah: Tragic.

SME: Um, did I just hear sarcasm in your voice?

Sarah: This has been a little strange.

SME: Do I need to put the title/image in here again so that "strange" won't surprise you?

Sarah: No. I get it. And now I think I understand the whole, "I have no friends" thing you're experiencing.

SME: What are you trying to say?

Sarah: Never mind.

SME: *cue exit music* Well, this has been "I Need Friends" Friday. Come back next week when I will make another friend!!


So... If you have something interesting to share about yourself or just want the fabulous experience of being interviewed for "I Need Friends" Friday, shoot me off an email: friends at sarahmeden dot com!
I am looking for anyone and everyone, whether or not you think you are interesting. You'll get a fantastic stick figure portrait of yourself, a little promotion (if you're looking for that sort of thing) and the opportunity to tell your friends and family that you've been interviewed by SME, er... by ME!

It's Wednesday. Let's go walkabout.
(I'm bringing along a few of my mates as I wander through the vast wilderness of the publishing industry, learning the ins and outs, and having a grand adventure.)

Walkabout, Week 42:

Covenant has accepted another manuscript for publication!
Currently entitled
"The Accidental Wife,"
my next Regency-era romance is scheduled for release in Spring/Summer of 2011!!!

I will pass on more details as I learn them. Hooray!!!!!

First things first, the winner of the Twilight Swag Box from Friday is...
Suan!
Whahooo!!!

And, next, the fate of I Need Friends Friday.

You may recall that I posted last week about my beloved INFF and how I wanted to make sure it hadn't worn out its welcome. Well, your collective response was overwhelming. I mean it. I'm blown away.
  • Not a single person said they were sick of it.
  • A bunch of people volunteered to be interviewed
So, it looks like INFF will continue. Phew!!!

I am in the process of trying to organize the amazing outpouring of volunteerism and will respond to everyone who emailed me very, very soon.
PS-If you made your offer in the comments of last week's post, would you mind emailing me so we can set up a day, etc. friends [at] sarahmeden [dot] com


Thanks so much everyone!!

Over the past weeks the folks over at Covenant have been receiving an unmanageable number of emails regarding me and my books. From what I understand, they come multiple times every single day and many are very nearly identical. As anyone who has had their inbox inundated with repeat messages can understand, the constant barrage is proving very frustrating.
So, for everyone's sanity, Covenant and I are asking that emails asking that they pick up my out-of-print books not be sent. I appreciate everyone's support and the enthusiastic response to Courting Miss Lancaster, but I'm certain none of us wants to cause problems.
I promise--PROMISE--I will keep everyone updated on any future books that are coming out and hope that your enthusiasm will hold.
Thanks so much for your cooperation!

It's that time of the week:


(Every Friday I interview a different person and share that interview with you. Perhaps they will be a fellow-author. Perhaps one of my neighbors. Maybe the bagger at the grocery store. A member of my family. A follower of this blog. Maybe it will be you! Hey, it could happen.)

Today's guest is my very own brother, Sam Miller. Sam is a great guy, a college student, and a very cooperative brother. I emailed him begging him to do an interview for INFF and he agreed. You're the best, Sam!

SME: Welcome to INFF!

Sam Miller: Thanks.

SME: So, big ol' important question to start with: What's the best thing to eat there in Rexburg?

Sam Miller: Well, knowing the vast options here in Rexburg...probably Ramire's. Its a Mexican place! Could you tell by the name?

SME: I figured either Mexican or German. One of the two.

Sam Miller: I've never eaten a German before...

SME: I wonder if Germans are tasty.

Sam Miller: Most likely.

SME: Do you have a fav dish over at Ramire's?

Sam Miller: I'd have to go with their carne asada burrito! With lots and lots of guacamole...lots of it.

SME: "Lots of Guacamole" is pretty much my favorite dish at any Mexican food restaurant.

Sam Miller: I usually just say could I have a dish of guacamole with a carne asada burrito on the side!

SME: "How much for a gallon of guacamole?" Could you imagine the server's face if you asked that?

Sam Miller: I'll take a picture for you next time I ask that.

SME: Awesome. So, Sam. What is your favorite continent?

Sam Miller: I'd have to say Antarctica. It was the only one I wasn't sure how to spell.

SME: That was Liz's answer too! You must be related!

Sam Miller: She has spelling issues too, eh?!

SME: Is it your favorite because you can't spell it?

Sam Miller: I think its my favorite because I can't see anybody having to kill cockroaches or other bugs there...Wouldn't that be the life?

SME: Amen. As a recent blog post of mine clearly indicated, I am not a fan of roaches!!

Sam Miller: What don't you like about roaches?

SME: They are ugly. And don't die. Same reason I don't like zombies.

Sam Miller: At least zombies aren't hairy like roaches are...That makes roaches worse.

SME: Fact: Roaches are worse than zombies.
I am pretty sure there is a law somewhere that absolutely requires that all college students be asked what their major is. What's your major?

Sam Miller: Knowing the amount of problems I should have from being the youngest of 5 (not to mention who my siblings are...) I chose to major in Psychology! Will that get me free counseling?

SME: Only if you "counsel" yourself. But that would probably make you schizophrenic. hmm..

Sam Miller: That's the plan...Self diagnosis is the way to go. Actually, I am probably losing money due to tuition. Maybe I should have just went to someone else!

SME: Well, how would you like to hone your fledgling future-psychiatrist skills to play a little game?

Sam Miller: Absolutely I would.

SME: I'm calling it, "Man. That guy could really use a good shrink". Two questions. Get 'em right (and there is no wrong answer, really) and you win!

Sam Miller: I think I can handle this!
Is there a prize?

SME: Fame. Glory. Bragging rights.

Sam Miller: Those I can use.

SME: Awesome. Okay, #1: Name a TV character who could REALLY use a good shrink.

Sam Miller: Michael Scott. Yesh, that's right. Michael Scott.

SME: Um. Correct. So very, very correct.
Name a movie character who could REALLY use a good shrink.

Sam Miller: That one's a little tougher...I'm shooting for the main girl from Twilight. Reason being that she is dating a vampire and a werewolf! Plus, lots of people will probably not like that I picked her... What's her name again?

SME: That would be Bella Swan. I would have to agree. She definitely has some very masochistic tendencies--she really ought to see someone about that. Not to mention a touch of an obsessive personality.
You win the game!!!! Hoorah!!!
That means it's time to head off to the portrait gallery!

Sam Miller: I'm a bit scared... Should I be? Something tells me yesh.

SME: My portraits are fabulous, very life-like stick figure drawings. You'll love it.

*an aura of awesomeness fills the air*

Sam Miller: Do I have an afro? I've always wanted one!

SME: You have one now. You're welcome.

Sam Miller: Wow, look how kind you are! I take back the comment about needing a shrink because of you.

SME: Time for the traditional final question of the interview. Give me the top 5 reasons this is the best blog interview you've ever done. Ready. Go.

Sam Miller: 5. We made the most important discovery I've ever made on a blog interview: roaches are worse than zombies! And that's official...
4. I found out what my favorite continent was.
3. It helped me procrastinate my dreaded homework! After all, my siblings needs come first.
2. I now have "fame, glory, and bragging rights".
1. I have now accomplished my dream of having an afro and I didn't even have to get a perm! What a great interview!

SME: Yup. I know how to conduct a rockin interview! Thanks for being my INFF guest!

Sam Miller: Anytime!

SME:
*cue exit music* Well, this has been "I Need Friends" Friday. Come back next week when I will make another friend!!

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

I interrupt the usual Walkabout Wednesday to make a sad, yet important, announcement. Nobody wants to be my friend. *wipes tear*

For 10 months "I Need Friends Friday" has been a weekly installment here at www.SarahMEden.com. Every Friday for nearly a year, you've been greeted by this friendly face.--------------------------->

In those 10 months I have had no lack of interested interviewees. At times my interview schedule has been booked out for up to 10 weeks in the future. Guess what? The schedule now sits empty. I am currently begging family members to agree to an interview in an attempt to buy myself some time.

So now I'm wondering... has INFF run its course? Has it lost its appeal? Does anyone read it other than me?

If you'd like to see I Need Friends Friday continue:
  • let me know!
  • volunteer to be interviewed if you haven't already (friends AT sarahmeden DOT com)
  • talk someone else into volunteering to be interviewed
OR

I'll host a special INFF in the next couple weeks in which we can bid the weekly interview a very fond farewell.

Friday, June 11, 2010

It's that time of the week:


(Every Friday I interview a different person and share that interview with you. Perhaps they will be a fellow-author. Perhaps one of my neighbors. Maybe the bagger at the grocery store. A member of my family. A follower of this blog. Maybe it will be you! Hey, it could happen.)

Today's guest is Katy Bickerstaff. She is a regular contributor at Mormon Mommy Blogs and maintains her own blog, as well. She's a fun gal, a great mom and a fabulous lady I met during my many, many years in Arizona.

Let's get to know Katy.

SME: Welcome to INFF!

Katy Bickerstaff: thank you! Glad to be here!

SME: In true INFF tradition I will begin by discussing the most important topic. Food.

Katy Bickerstaff: Food is good.

SME: What was the most scrumptious thing you ate today?

Katy Bickerstaff: Ummmm.....cherrios. This has not been one of my best "food days."

SME: Wow. That's kind of pathetic. Let me rephrase that question: What was the most scrumptious thing you wish you ate today?

Katy Bickerstaff: cheesecake....always cheesecake.

SME: Amazingly enough, I quite often have that same wish. Perhaps if we both wish hard enough.... cheesecake from heaven! huh? huh? c'mon. It could happen.

Katy Bickerstaff: Modern day Manna......

SME: Amen. I could totally live on that for 40 years. Totally.

Katy Bickerstaff: Did you get any yet?

SME: Nope. Cheesecake drought over here right now.

Katy Bickerstaff: Yeah...me neither.

SME: One of us isn't wishing hard enough. *ahem*

Katy Bickerstaff: My bad.

SME: Work on that, Katy. 'Cause I need me some cheesecake.
So... it was almost 90* here today and it made me thinking longingly of Arizona--in February.

Katy Bickerstaff: Well I'll take your 90 degrees and raise ya 20 more.

SME: Get me some heaven-sent cheesecake and maybe I'll trade you weather forecasts.

Katy Bickerstaff: Ohhhhh.....only if you promise to take it back when winter comes around.

SME: You know what they say about beggars being choosers.

Katy Bickerstaff: I cannot fathom driving in snow.

SME: Definitely a steep learning curve on that. I'm still trying to figure that out.

Katy Bickerstaff: I don't know how people do it. That and eat gross stuff like..... oysters!

SME: *gag*

Katy Bickerstaff: Exactly!

SME: I'm not a fan, either. (cue angry emails from the oyster lobby)

Katy Bickerstaff: I don't think Oysters appreciate being eaten and all.

SME: See, we're just looking out for the poor innocent oysters.

Katy Bickerstaff: I mean, it's one thing to take their pearls...but to then eat them...well that's just a little too greedy, if you ask me.

SME: On a more serious note... Okay, let's face it, there are no serious notes at INFF... On a different note: how long have you been a blogger?

Katy Bickerstaff: A serious one? Or a general one?

SME: *shrugs* I just ask the questions, I don't actually know what they mean.

Katy Bickerstaff: Ha! I started my blog about 4 years ago at the urging of my older sister. Then recently, after I had my 3rd baby, I really got into writing posts almost daily.

SME: What is it about blogging that appeals to you?

Katy Bickerstaff: First and foremost...the family history aspect of it. I plan on turning all of my blog posts into a book for my family to have

SME: Very cool.

Katy Bickerstaff: Second...it's such a great way for me to process my thoughts...crazy as they are sometimes. I find myself feeling a sense of freedom, you know? Being able to write what you feel without judgement.

SME: Writing can be very cathartic, for sure.

Katy Bickerstaff: I want my children to know what I was like at this stage in my life. Heaven knows I will be completely deranged when I'm old and gray.

SME: I'm pretty much deranged right now. So, too late I guess

Katy Bickerstaff: Why do you write Sarah?

SME: In the words of Lord Byron "If I don't write to empty my mind, I go mad." Without writing, I would be certifiably insane. Guaranteed.

Katy Bickerstaff: Wow.

SME: Ask pretty much any novelist and they'll tell you that they have stories and characters constantly running through their minds and if they don't write to get them out, they'll go crazy.
(Now that every non-writer reading this is a little worried about my mental stability...) What's your favorite continent?

Katy Bickerstaff: I love Canada. But that's not a continent. Can we pretend it is for the sake of my answer? Pretty please?

SME: Sure. I'm not a snob when it comes to continents.

Katy Bickerstaff: I would love to travel all over that country if I could. Ever since I saw the movie "Anne of Green Gables" I've longed to go to Prince Edward Island.

SME: I actually spent a couple hours just the other day planning a fictional trip to Vancouver. *sigh* Some day. Of course, I've been saying that about England for 10 years now.

Katy Bickerstaff: Oh, I do that all the time. I find all the spots I would hit and find hotels and everything.... We have such lofty dreams....you and I.

SME: It helps take a little of the sting out when you realize "Wait. I'm too poor to travel."

Katy Bickerstaff: Completely.

SME: Are you up for a little game?

Katy Bickerstaff: oh yeah! Wait.... Does it involve anything illegal?

SME: Nothing illegal. I promise. Although, it may be illegal in Canada. Not sure on that one. *waits expectantly for Kimberly VanderHorst and Rachel Starr Thomson to offer their Canadian wisdom*
The Mounties could interrupt at any moment.

Katy Bickerstaff: Oh....I'm drooling now. I love Mounties! Okay....sorry...back to the game.

SME: This is a game which has made multiple appearances at INFF--because it is one of my favs!! We're gonna play "Rapid-fire Q&A" in which I ask you a question and you have to give the first answer that pops into your head. No explanations or reasons allowed.

Katy Bickerstaff: Nice.

SME: Dream job?

Katy Bickerstaff: Dancer

SME: Favorite subject in school?

Katy Bickerstaff: English

SME: Dream vacation spot?

Katy Bickerstaff: Anywhere in Canada! duh!:)

SME: Favorite fairy tale?

Katy Bickerstaff: Cinderella

SME: Favorite child? Just kidding! Favorite elementary school teacher?

Katy Bickerstaff: Mrs. Houy

SME: Favorite season?

Katy Bickerstaff: Fall

SME: If you could be a competitor on any television reality show, which one would you choose?

Katy Bickerstaff: America's Best Dance Crew

SME: Least favorite smell?

Katy Bickerstaff: stinky throw up

SME: Favorite Christmas goodie? (only 6 months away!)

Katy Bickerstaff: divinity

SME: And lastly, favorite "little thing" your husband does for you?

Katy Bickerstaff: mows the lawn
Okay...how did I do?

SME: Congratulations. You answered every question right. That makes you the INFF champion!!

Katy Bickerstaff: YES!!!!!!!

SME: Woo-woo!

Katy Bickerstaff: As if I couldn't get any cooler right now!

SME: Oh, you're about to get crazy cool. We're headed to the portrait gallery!!

*draws a wicked-cool portrait*

Katy Bickerstaff: I look so good! You can tell I've been going to the Gym for the last couple of months.

SME: Look at the definition and toning. Good on ya.

Katy Bickerstaff: Nice shoes.

SME: Umm... the exact shoes I am wearing. Right. Now.

Katy Bickerstaff: Really? Do they come in a size 8?

SME: I don't know. See, I have to shop in the little girls section. It's embarrasing. But I got these Vans in the boys section. Not bad.

Katy Bickerstaff: I had a friend that loved to wear boys jeans instead of girl jeans because the waist was more forgiving. Besides...boy clothes look better on girls than the other way around. :)

SME: This is true.
I do believe that brings us to the final question of the interview. Top 5 reasons this is the best blog interview you've ever done. Ready. Go.

Katy Bickerstaff: 5. The questions were so laid back and easy going.
4. Cheesecake was discussed as a possible weather forecast for tonight.
3. This is the first self portrait I'd had made of myself since six flags when I was a teenager. And that one was too cartoonish for me.
2. I discovered our mutual love for "fantasy vacationing".
1. I got to spend chat time with a really cool gal named Sarah Eden.

Katy Bickerstaff: You don't have a "garden" in your back yard by chance, do you? :)

SME: Good one. The Garden of Eden. Everyone got that, right?

Katy Bickerstaff: I try.

SME: Thanks for being my INFF friend, Katy!

Katy Bickerstaff: No prob! Until we chat again Sarah! Remember who you are!

SME:
*cue exit music* Well, this has been "I Need Friends" Friday. Come back next week when I will make another friend!!

If you'd like to be interviewed for "I Need Friends" Friday, shoot me off an email: friends at sarahmeden dot com!
I am looking for anyone and everyone, whether or not you think you are interesting.
