Inside The Author’s Head: James Everington

July 22, 2013

Q1. What is your favorite word?

 “Forlorn” – lovely word.

Q2. What is your least favorite word?

“Shorts” when used as an abbreviation for ‘short stories’ by people who should know better.

Q3. How has social media helped your career?

It has helped immensely, or rather all the brilliant/eccentric/book-obsessed people I’ve met through it have. For example, I doubt I’d have my current book out via the ace small-press who are publishing it if it wasn’t for social media.

I hope social media has allowed me to help a few people back, too, in whatever small way.

Q4. What would you say are the downsides to social media in your career? 

 Mainly by eating into what little writing time I have.

Also, I’ve promised so many people on Twitter a drink should we ever meet in real life that I’ll be destitute if I ever encounter them all at onc

Q5. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

Lock-keeper. Somewhat naively, I imagine it allows you plenty of reading time.

Q6. What profession would you not like to do?

Driving instructor.

Q7. What is your favorite curse word? 


Q8. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

“The infinite library’s on your left, the never dry bar is on your right. You can write upstairs, overlooking the ocean. The Gents are downstairs.”

Thanks James. If you are looking for James in the electronic ether you will find him here.
