Author Interview: R.M. Archer

Author Interview: R.M. Archer

Last week I got to interview my friend Allie (yeah, I know, you hear about her a lot. That’s not likely to change.) on her blog, Of Rainy Days & Stardust Veins, and this week it’s her turn to interview me. I have a past interview up on the blog with my sister as the interviewer, but it ended up kind of stilted and awkward, so I’m hoping with this one it’ll be a bit looser and more comfortable. Let’s get started. :)


Allie: Thanks for having me Autumn. Wow, I’m pretty sure this my my first official time here on your blog!

Archer: I think it is. XD But I’ve mentioned you several times, even before you had your own blog.

Why is it so difficult?

In times like these, when writing is just hard—sometimes emotionally draining—when the words just aren’t coming… These are the times we need to remember why we’re writing this story rather than one of the other billion ideas out there. Why did we decide on this story?

I know, a lot Continue reading “Finding Your Why”

Slander & Steel Giveaway!

Slander & Steel Giveaway!

As I’m prepping to write this post, I’m realizing I haven’t kept y’all here on the blog updated on Slander & Steel‘s progress. Slander & Steel is the new title for The Heart of the Baenor, if y’all remember that. It’s a book I’ve been working on editing over the past several months. (You can read more about it here.) I ran a Kickstarter campaign in August while it was with beta-readers and I did a bad job of it–both the setup of the campaign and the promotion of it–and my editing stalled out in September, BUT now I’m coming back Continue reading “Slander & Steel Giveaway!”
