~ Explorations In Writing { and reading and publishing } ~

Author Interview ~ L. E. Crane (aka Eve Macbeth)

We have quite a few author interviews on this blog but today’s is the first of a new kind called Author Mini-Interviews.

In the post, When A Manuscript Turns Into A Book ~ Very Strange . . . (plus, a number of other posts), I talk about my exploits in the virtual world, Second Life.

The place I work, Book Island, has many published authors who rent shops to promote their work.

I was talking to Eve Macbeth the other day and it hit me that the weekly newsletter for the Island could use a new Feature–Author Mini-Interviews :-)

Many of the denizens of Second Life have already read this virtual interview in the virtual newsletter in the virtual world


So, Eve, when did you start writing?

I started writing when I was about eight years old but did not finish my first story until I was ten. It was science fiction.

What was the story about?

It was a graphic novel about two very large robots who bring their intergalactic war onto earth. One robot was a giant man and the other was a giant lion. A year later my best friend’s older sister stole my book and I have not seen it since.

What an absolute Bummer :-( ……. Well, let’s move on, o.k? Would you describe your “writing habits”?

I have developed a writing style that works great for me. I write like crazy for nine months straight then take three months off–repeating till finished. Taking those long breaks are great for seeing my work with fresh eyes. My novel took two years to write and another year to self-edit. I put my entire life on hold for those three years and, when I was not writing, I was thinking about writing.

When were you published?

I was published Dec 3rd 2009. It was one of the most exciting days of my life. I had spent much of my free time daydreaming about being published–and, that wonderful day, my dream finely came true.

 :-) Tell us about the book.

The Story of Death Kard  is action science fiction set in our galaxy’s future. It’s an exciting story told on thirteen different worlds and spans five hundred years. While the story follows a truly evil villain, you never get the sense he’s the bad guy. He’s a very effective general on the wrong side of history. The Galactic Rule–the evil empire he fights for–was founded upon death and hate. He, however, never buys into the hate but becomes death himself with the blood of billions upon his hands.

There are many great characters that battle by his side through the centuries–few of which are human.

Thanks so much, Eve, for giving us this brief peek into your life and your book!!


So, folks, you can get Eve’s book at Outskirts Press and you can visit her shop on Book Island in Second Life, too :-)
