Debbie Bennett replied to David DeLee's discussion The Writing Process
"Fortunately I've been here enough times that I trust my subconscious will come up with the goods sooner or later. I just need to have faith!"

Debbie Bennett replied to David DeLee's discussion The Writing Process
"I'm a complete pantser. That's the best bit - when it just seems to fall out onto the screen while bypassing my conscious brain entirely. When I'm living and breathing the story and can't think about anything else. I must be hell…"

Debbie Bennett replied to I. J. Parker's discussion Crossing the genre lines.
"Me too. I grew up on the sf classics - Wyndham and Heinlein. Spent many years involved in the fantasy sub-culture and only moved more into crime recently."

Debbie Bennett replied to I. J. Parker's discussion Crossing the genre lines.
"Interesting comment. That's the reason I never use my name on my books - only initials! I do think a past is important though. It's the past that defines the present - that makes us who we are now. I read something recently - I really do…"

Debbie Bennett replied to I. J. Parker's discussion Crossing the genre lines.
"Personally I really hate the mystery/detective and paranormal crossover that everybody adores these days. Just reading a back cover and finding that the detective is a shapeshifter, or there's a demon involved somewhere makes me chuck the book…"

Debbie Bennett replied to David DeLee's discussion Create Space expanded distribution
"You can pick it up off a customised report. It doesn't tell you where it sold, but it does distinguish between an amazon sale and an expanded distribution sale - although that may be because all my amazon sales are from the UK site. No idea on…"

Debbie Bennett replied to dan petrosini's discussion Dialoque of immigrant
"Read Iain Rowan's One of Us for what I thought was a near-perfect portrayal of illegal immigrant Anna. Rowan has just the right voice, the lack of idioms and contractions and he doesn't let it slip for the entire novel. I was so impressed…"

Debbie Bennett replied to David DeLee's discussion Create Space expanded distribution
"Yay! I sell more paperbacks through expanded distribution than I do via amazon. Brings the additional cost of a paperback version down to just the cover costs."

Debbie Bennett replied to Eric Christopherson's discussion Excerpts at the end of ebooks
"I'm sure there was a poll/discussion on the reader forum on kindleboards not long back. And every writer was, and still is, a reader too!"

Debbie Bennett replied to Eric Christopherson's discussion Excerpts at the end of ebooks
"I hate them. I hate reading an ebook and I'm only at 90%, turn the page and it's the end. What? I feel cheated. If I want to read something else by that author, I'm quite capable of googling. A simple url is all that is needed at the…"

Debbie Bennett replied to Jean Henry Mead's discussion Those nasty, rude one star reviews!
"I find when authors vent on social media about their 1* reviews, all their well-meaning friends rush over and "vote-down" the review (and sometimes comment that the reviewer is wrong!).  Result: the original reviewer may never leave…"

Debbie Bennett replied to William G. Davis's discussion Profanity in novels. What's your opinion?i
"I have a street-kid character. It took me ages to understand that he was talking with my words and not his. When I started restricting the range of his vocabulary and letting him swear, he started coming to life. A lack of education means he…"

Debbie Bennett replied to Jude Hardin's discussion Paper Books vs E-books
"I love my kindle. I read indie and trad books in e-form and print. As Cammy said, I can judge a book by its sample, so I rarely download any turkeys. But what makes ebooks win out for me is the convenience. My nearest bookstore is half an hour away…"
