    Hi, Caroline! What an incredible interview for an incredible writer. And yes, you have some good critique gals.

    I always like to remind Caroline she told me to join DARA. Thanks my friend!

    Fun and interesting interview. I love that when you’re struggling with story, you write as if you’re talking to a friend. Light-bulbs came on here. I love estate sales too. Sigh. I love the fun of finding something you never expected. 🙂
    You’re an amazing writer and person I’m blessed to call friend. I’m so proud of you, and I wish you continued success! *Hugs*
    Love you!

    Another great interview, Caroline! Like you, I hate promo. I’m still trying to figure out what works to gain readers and what’s not worth my time.

    I’m also addicted to my e-reader. I have a Nook. It’s just so easy to buy and download books I want right now. Don’t have to worry about postage expense or wait time in the mail. lnstant gratification! lol

    I love all your stories and with that intriguing excerpt, your newest release is already on my radar. Best of luck with it, my friend.

      Thanks, Susan. Your writing is so great that I value your input. I also love the instant gratification of an e-reader. I have a Kindle. Think of all the postage or car expense we save with our e-readers. And they’re so light, I take mine everywhere so I always have something to read if I’m stuck waiting a few minutes here or there. Amazing how much reading I get done in ten minute sessions. Thanks for commenting.

    CAROLINE–yes, you’re very busy! I’m on a sort of hiatus, but I will gear up soon. I just get tired promoting–often we don’t know if anything is working or not. So, I’m with you there. It’s just one of those necessities in the life of an author.
    Good luck with this very good story–say hello to Derek and Courtney for me!

    This is one of the best intereviews I’ve read. I love the different type of questions. I have two stories about ready to send out and then I can have the fun of promotion. I’ve been paying more attention to promotion lately and the variety of techniques is daunting, and yet exciting. I live in the mountains so don’t get out and around people a lot. I can see that will be changing when I am blessed with a published book.

    The best to you, Caroline. You write fantastic stories.

    Caroline and Morgan,
    Fantastic interview! If we lived closer Caroline, we could go antiquing together. Wouldn’t we have fun. Of course we’d have to save that for the weekends so we can write during the week.

    Wishing you many happy readers for your new book!


    • Caroline Clemmons says:

      Jeanmarie, I wish we DID live closer. We enjoy so many of the same things, we would probably constantly get ourselves into trouble having fun. Not bad trouble, good trouble like dragging home too many antiques or staying too long looking for dinosaur tracks, etc. Girls just want to have fun!

    Hi, Caroline!

    I am an ole newspaper gal myself, but I sold advertising and wrote a cooking column. I enjoy promotion and marketing. I also worked at our local radio station, and I loved writing ad copy! Thank you for a great interview. You have a lot of interests, and you have creative story ideas for a variety genres. Something tells me that you “see stories” where others just see a blank wall. Well, blank except maybe for that fly speck : )
