Is blogging on the decline? My own target of weekly posts (which I maintained for three years!) has long since gone to the wall and there are very few blogs I return to on a regular basis. I also notice that more and more authors use Facebook or other social media to make useful and informative posts alongside the more ephemeral (!)chit-chat.
Someone who comes into this category is author-publisher Jane Davis whose FB posts are always worth a look and whose I Stopped Time – a prize-winning novel touching on the history of photography – I really enjoyed. But I then discovered that as well as an upbeat social media presence, Jane has a blog with some extremely interesting and thought-provoking interviews with a wide variety of authors.
I’m delighted to say that as of today I have joined their ranks and you can read the interview here. It has some ruminations on historical and literary fiction as well as a plea for the categorisation of fiction. Do take a look and also at Jane’s previous interviewees all of whom have something interesting to say.
Thanks Jane, for the opportunity.
