Mindi Scott Interview

This is an interview with the talented author of Freefall, Mindi Scott. Let's see what clever things she has to say....

Wow! When you get your first novel they don't give you a break do they?

They totally do, actually! I had a few months off while waiting for revision notes after the deal went through. And now that the pass pages are done, I'm done for now. Although, there is always the next book to write and networking and all that . . .

I just finished sending Kimberly Derting her interview. Isn't she sweet?

She's VERY sweet! She actually lives about an hour away from me, so we've met up a few times.

What is it like seeing rows of your books in major book stores?

At the time of this interview, that hasn't happened to me. Maybe we'll have to do a follow up later. ;-)

Eight cats? I have one and he's enough!

Where did you hear that slanderous rumor??? I have only four cats. Of course, they are enough trouble for eight, I suppose.

Is it weird being an author interviewing an author?

Not at all! It think it's more natural than being an author interviewing any other sort of person.

Are you overwhelmed with emails regarding Freefall?

Lately, yes, but I'm trying to catch up.

What is your favorite type of music? Do you have a playlist you listen to while writing?

I like the music we used to call "alternative," I suppose. I change up music for every book I work on, though. Right now, it's non-stop Silversun Pickups. While I was writing and revising FREEFALL, I listened mainly to the Killers, Ash, Social Distortion, Tom Petty, and "It's Been Awhile" by Staind.

Have you seen any good movies lately? Which ones? Looking forward to any upcoming ones?

I NetFlix'ed BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM and that was pretty cute. I'm looking forward to the ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT movie if it ever happens!

What is the last book you read? What was it about?

A LOVE STORY STARRING MY DEAD BEST FRIEND by Emily Horner. According to Amazon is about "the breadth of love. Of the depth of friendship. And of the most hilarious musical one quiet suburb has ever seen." :-)

Thanks so much for the interview! I appreciate it.

No, thank you Mindi! It was my pleasure to have you take time out of your busy schedule and allow me this interview. I can't wait for Freefall to come out as it is part of the Debut Author Challenge I joined back in December 2009. May October bring you lots of success and fans galore.
