  1. […] week and visitors were encouraged to ask Janet some of their own questions! Here is a link to that Spotlight! Feel free to ask more questions, and we might just be able to get Janet back for a follow up […]

  2. Hi Janet,

    I was going to ask you about self-publishing, but I see that Sophia beat me to it! I’m interested to know about your experiences with pursuing a traditional publisher. Who have you approached? What has the response been?

    Also, do you have an agent?

  3. Jenny Svetec says:

    All weekend long at W!C, people kept mentioning how it just isn’t the same without you. You were greatly missed? How do you maintain deep friendships with writers and how has this impacted your work?

  4. Ann Brent says:

    Janet, I wonder if you have thought about publishing some of your work on your blog. Maybe a portion a week to get people reading your writing? I know another author who did that and don’t know if it’s effective, but wonder if you’ve thought about it.

  6. Stephen Ward says:

    1. You are writing a story with a nasty character. Is it more fun than writing the hero’s part?
    2. Have you ever tried acid?
    3. Do you do an initial outline of your story?
    4. Is Canada more fun than the United States?
    5. Two endings of your story come to mind. How do you choose which ending will make your story stronger?
    6. One of your characters accidentally kills someone in the story. Do they fry?
    7. Which is more important with regards to your writing – an inspirational lesson or entertainment?
    8. It is January 31, 1933. You wake up and find that you are Adolf Hitler. Yesterday you were appointed Chancellor of Germany and today is your first day on the job. What would you do different?
    9. How much emphasis do you put into a cover?
    10. Someone wants to collaborate with you on a story. Would you?

  7. Bobbi says:

    What kind of setting do you find most conducive to your writing? What kinds of things side-track you, and how do you get back on task?

  8. Hi Janet;

    I am interested in knowing what first inspired you to write fiction? Did you enjoy writing stories as a child? where do you get the inspiration for your characters?

  9. njlindquist says:

    Hi Janet.

    I’m wondering what project or projects are you currently working on? And in that vein, do you usually work on one thing at a time or more than one?

  10. Hi Janet,

    You’re trying to find a mainstream publisher, yes? Have you ever considered self-publishing?

    What’s your usual procedure when you start a new story – do an outline or or jump right into the story and see where it takes you?

    Which part of the writing process do you like the most, and which the least?

    What’s your favourite tea?

    Sophia DeLuna:

  11. Looking forward to some conversation… Since I don’t think you can see the individual story details online, my entry in A Second Cup of Hot Apple Cider is about being stranded on the side of the highway with a broken-down car and three young children. Also, it didn’t seem to fit in the professional bio, but I’m a tea-lover.
