Brave on the Page

A good writer friend of mine, Laura Stanfill, has a charming and interesting blog. One of the most consistently interesting features there is her series of author interviews – Seven Questions. I was delighted and honoured to be interviewed in this series about a year ago. She’s a talented interviewer, preparing questions that are not just individual to the author but engaging to answer – I certainly learnt some things from thinking about how to answer the questions.

She recently announced the publication of an edited collection of these interviews through her small press, Forest Avenue Press. “Brave on the Page: Oregon Writers on Craft and the Creative Life” also features additional material around the craft of writing. The physical printing is being done with the Espresso book machine, initially at Powell’s but I understand it will be available through the On Demand Books network.

The official launch date is 08-Oct-2012.

I am really looking forward to reading all of the refreshed interviews, and the original essays by other authors. And of course it is always exciting to see some of your own words on the page!

Congratulations to Laura and everyone involved on a huge accomplishment.

    Thanks for the shout-out, Duncan, and for adding all those links about our project! I’ll definitely have the book available online through, likely a few days before launch (shh!), just to make sure it works.

    I picked up my first real copies yesterday to bring some to Broadway Books to carry at Wordstock. Exciting!
