I’m at ThrillWriting, Chatting About My Time Inside an Oil Drum

My time spent inside an oil drumI’m over at ThrillWriting.blogspot.com today, talking about my time spent inside an oil drum. During my edits of CLEAVED, I noticed I had no real life experience to draw from in order to instill the correct emotional response in my reader, so I climbed inside an oil drum to experience it first-hand. If you haven’t read MARRED, now’s your chance to grab the Kindle version for 99c before the sequel, CLEAVED, goes up for pre-release, and you can see how I used my research.

A taste of my chat with Fiona is below. Incidentally, not only is Fiona Quinn a talented author but her site has a wealth of information. Highly recommend her books and blog.

Oh, the Places We Will Go! Info. for Writers with Sue Coletta

Our guest is Sue Coletta – I love keeping up with Sue on Facebook because she’s a writer after my own heart – unless you experience it, it’s hard to write it right.

The other day on Facebook, I read one of Sue’s posts to my husband because he could so identify with Sue’s hubby. Can you tell the story about the chair for us ThrillWriters?

Sue – 
My husband and I had just watched a movie. He got up to brush his teeth and came back into the living room to find me curled in a ball on the seat of the recliner. He asked, “What are you doing?”

I said, “Do you think I could fit inside a suitcase?”

His response was, “Dead or alive?”

See you there!

  1. At any point, did you think to yourself “maybe I’ll just have her trapped in a bigger container that will be more comfortable to research?”

  2. Off to see what you’re up to!
