So, Rowan. What have you been doing with your spare time?

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

If you caught my recent interviews at Rain on Roof and Reviews by jessewave, you know I mentioned that I was taking a break from writing to recharge. Here are some of the things I’ve been doing:

  • Pulled the trusty Casio keyboard out of the closet. Hadn’t touched it for years. This turned out to be a problem because apparently I’d left the batteries in there and they did the leak/rust/mold themselves into the inside thing. It took three hours, but I was able to get it clean enough to take new batteries.

  • Got a Wii Fit. Am now addicted to Rhythm Kung-fu. I probably take it waaaaay too seriously.

  • Experimented with creating a bit of stop-motion animation.

  • Watched all twelve episodes of Black Blood Brothers.

  • Read volume 1 of Xxxholic, Tsubasa Chronicles, and Legal Drug.

  • Created a hand-drawn animation for my mother: Dancing Figurine.

  • Had a relatively minor surgery, which put a stop to Rhythm Kung-fu for at least three weeks. lol.

  • Currently recovering from said surgery. 🙂

So that’s everything I can recall. I haven’t been writing a lot, but easing back into real life has opened up some interesting conversations with my muse, so I feel like good things are coming. Plus, I might have a fun blog event coming with some friends of mine, so cross your fingers for that. 😀

Reminder – Interview at Reviews by jessewave

Monday, October 26th, 2009

My interview on Reviews by jessewave is tomorrow, October 27th, 2009. I’ll be there to answer reader comments off and on all day, and commenting will automatically enter you in a drawing to win an autographed copy of Want Me. Unless you don’t want my third grade scrawling messing up the book. Then you have the option of no autograph. 🙂

The site address is, and you don’t have to register to comment. Topics in the interview will range from muscle growth to sadistic semes (it’s all a rich tapestry, really), and I’d be siked if you stopped by!

Interviews! And Prizes!

Sunday, October 18th, 2009

I have two interviews coming up. One will be on Rain on Roof ( Monday, October 19th. There I’ll talk about writing, Pocky, manga. She asked me about my favorite shoes and rather than try and describe their shabby awesomeness I took a picture for her, so you get to see the footwear I sport almost every day if that’s the sort of thing that does it for you. 😀 Also, one of my currently published e-books will be given away in a drawing (you have to comment to enter — the winner will get to choose which story they’d like). I’ll be at the blog on and off all day, and I’m looking forward to having a lot of fun conversing in the comments section with whoever shows up!

On Tuesday, October 27th, I’ll be interviewed on Reviews by Jessewave ( I’ll be talking about writing, muscle growth, and ceiling fans. The prize given away will be an autographed copy of Want Me. If you already own Want Me, I imagine we could switch the prize up to an 8×10 glossy print of one of my book covers, or my Boy Meets Bishie logo. Your choice. Once again, you’ll have to comment in order to be entered.

Neither site requires registration to comment.

A weird quirk of timing is responsible for me having two interviews this month. My last interview (which, incidentally, was also my first interview) was done back in 2007, so it’s been a while. I gotta say—I’m a bit nervous. I hope to see you there, and I also hope I don’t stick my foot in my mouth. 😉

My First Interview!

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

Note: This blog was originally published on my MySpace blog, October 5, 2007.

JL Foster interviewed me for this week’s issue of Within His Castle! Within His Castle is an expansive online newsletter that covers everything from politics to poetry. There are novel reviews, updates on the book world, and story excerpts from a wide variety of writers. It’s always packed full of fun stuff.

This is my very first interview, can you believe it? The segment is called JL’s Twenty, and I got twenty questions. Some were in-depth, some were really fun. A few had me drawing a complete blank, and I have no idea how I did overall. If you read it, be sure to let me know.

Issue 20 comes out tonight at midnight CST.  To pick up your copy of Within His Castle, go to where you can download the issue or subscribe to the newsletter.  You can also subscribe directly by sending an email to .  I hope you enjoy it!
