A Podcast Interview with Cynthia Leitich Smith by Liviania Smith from In Bed with Books II at Internet Voices Radio. See the Aug. 3 interview. Note: it’s a substantial podcast, about 40 minutes long, and, if you’re so inclined you also can listen in on some of our post-question-and-answer chatter.
I had a great deal of fun doing this interview. The focus is Tantalize (Candlewick, 2007, 2008) and the upcoming books and short stories to follow it. I also talk about diving into the YA Gothic fantasy market, the writing life, my geekiness, my respect for romance writers, pre-writing, my early mentors, courage, stretching my “brand,” blogging, and my treaty with ducks.
Peek: “I do not recommend that people quit their day jobs until they have things like contracts and agents.”
Note: the early, scary debt I refer to in the interview was made up of student loans from law school.
“Liviania Smith is a nineteen-year-old college honors student and blogger. You can find her book reviews at http://inbedwithbooks.blogspot.com.” Liviania is also funny, charming, and very, very smart.

Tantalize (Candlewick, 2007, 2008): a recommendation by Reading Junky. Peek: “Readers who become hooked on Tantalize will be happy to learn that a second book is underway–Eternal [Candlewick, March 2008]. It can’t show up in bookstores soon enough.”
