A.R. Silverberry was kind enough to offer to interview me about my new ebook, The Curate’s Brother: A Jane Austen Variation of Persuasion. I had a lot of fun doing the interview and I hope you will all find it interesting. In the interview, I go over the origins of where my book began, the process I used to hone it into its final form, and about the sources of historical research that I used to write the book.

About Leisl Kaberry:
I was never going to be a writer…seriously. Somehow despite my great love of telling and writing stories, writing as a career was just not a consideration at all… I had other plans. However I was kind of propelled towards it… or perhaps my characters and world were begging me to be released from their prison (which is my mind) to be able to frolic on paper. So here it is, my first book of a trilogy, a teen fantasy adventure, Titanian Chronicles – Journey of Destiny.
My article, Nanowrimo: A Writer’s Workshop, has published on Lit Central OC Magazine today. This is a magazine that features writers from the Orange Country area of California.

National Novel Writing Month starts Nov. 1 every year. People from all over the world gather together in coffeehouses, libraries, and other public locations to write 50,000 of the rough draft of a novel in 30 days. It is a time of writing madness. You set aside the regular activities of your life and focus on getting words on the page.
