Coming Sunday: Chat with Orna Ross

On Sunday 18th May I'll be hosting an interview with Orna Ross on the blog. Orna is the author of Lovers' Hollow and is also a literary agent (Font Literary) and creative writing teacher, so she is uniquely placed to answer questions both on the craft and the business side of writing. A few weeks ago Caroline Smailes hosted her live and it was a great success; lots of people dropped by with questions for Orna which she answered promptly and everyone had a good time.

Since I'm in the Caribbean and visitors to my blog are scattered around the globe, we're doing things a little differently: visitors may leave their questions in the comment trail all day Sunday and Orna will post her responses on Monday.

The blog will be open for questions from 6AM Sunday 18th to 6AM Monday 19th May - UK time.
That translates to:
1AM Sunday to 1AM Monday - US Eastern time / Caribbean time
3AM Sunday to 3AM Monday - US Pacific time
Midday Sunday to midday Monday in Thailand, Singapore and thereabouts
9AM Sunday to 9AM Monday in Dubai
And everywhere else in between. I think that covers both sides of the globe.

Everyone is welcome to drop by with writing, agenting and publishing questions! Several people did not get to ask their questions of Orna when Caroline hosted; I couldn't get in myself, it was so crowded in there! Here's another chance - apart from which, I'll be simply mortified if nobody showed up. So come on over!

Ooh, brilliant - Orna came up with some fab advice when Caroline hosted.

Will have to think of some sensible questions this time.
