  5. I have to be honest, Madeline, most times when I read author interviews I get bored less than halfway through. Not this time. These were really well chosen questions...and it helped that Alistair is pretty good with the answers too.

    Great interview!!

  7. Massive thanks to Al for answering all our questions and illuminating the writing/publishing world. I feel the same way when it comes to chapters and length - I end and start a chapter where it 'feels' right, and don't like them to be overly long.

    Madeleine - I loved the way you presented the question and answers!
