Interview w/ J.A. Tyler @ MonkeyBicycle

J.A. Tyler interviewed me about my mock novel, Lepers and Mannequins, up at the MonkeyBicycle blog. This is the first time anything I've written has ever appeared at/on/in MonkeyBicycle. And I've tried. This feels pretty good. I wish I'd discussed more about how the novel is a mock novel, how it mocks narrative and plot devices by using narrative and plot devices to do so. I guess that's all else there is to say, really: Aside from everything I discuss in the interview, the novel mocks narrative and plot devices by using narrative and plot devices to mock narrative and plot devices.

my brain gets tangled up with the repetition of mock narrative and ... devices ... ahhh. How post modern. I'll head over and have a look at the interview. Congratulations on monkey bicycle! They're a tough cookie to crack. That metaphor makes no sense.

Thanks, Jessica! I hope you're doing well. I like cookies, so that metaphor doesn't have to make sense. Cookies alone make sense...
