Good News/Bad News

I'll give you the bad first, get it over with, then we'll end on a positive note.

Sadly, Tara Tyler has decided to give up Unicorn Bell. We wish it weren't so but we understand  that sometimes life gets in the way of things. Hopefully things will turn around for Tara and maybe she'll come back to do a guest post now and again. You can still find her at her home blog.

Now for the good news. We found someone cool to step in and we are super happy that Jeffrey, who runs Jeffrey Beesler's World of the Scribe,  has agreed to be our fourth moderator. I asked Jeffrey if he would mind doing a mini interview and he graciously agreed. He's the one on the right.*

1. What first made you think you could write?
People around me always saw that I had an aptitude for writing. I just had to get myself to the proper attitude to follow after it.

2. Do you favor a particular genre? Why?
Speculative (aka sci fi, fantasy, horror) because these push the limits of reality and imagination to create something new and beautiful.

3. What are you working on now?
I'm working on the final revision of a novel, Spell of Entrapment, that I hope to start submitting to publishers and agents by February 1st.

4. What's the last book you read?
In the middle of reading Sean Sweeney's Model Agent. I can't think of the last book that I completely finished reading right now.

5. Care to share anything else? An interesting fact or hitherto unknown fact about yourself?
I'm a guy who likes to watch soap operas. I'm not afraid to admit it. And the fact that soap operas are being cancelled for reality TV really sickens me. I want my entertainment, by golly!

Jeffrey will be starting in February. Now tell me that isn't cool.

* The guy on the left is Draven Ames, whose blog is Another Slightly Scary Story.

Congratulations on finding a replacement so quickly. That's wonderful. And I agree with Charity, a male perspective is exciting to have.
