Krista D. Ball interviews me about short fiction

Krista D. Ball interviews me on her site today about writing and marketing short fiction, including the following:

  • Is the short form your favourite to write, or did you just fall into that?
  • How does an author choose when to do a collection?
  • As a reader, what do you look for in short fiction?
  • Do the works of others influence where your ideas take you?
  • What advice would you give an unpublished writer trying to break into short stories?
  • What is your opinion on unpaid or very low paying markets? Do you have a firm rule (“I never work for under 2 cents a word”) or do you play it by ear for each market and/or piece?
