Another question, Kat: Have you started writing book 5 yet? You do remember you promised to put me into the book and kill me, right? Or do you usually wait until after the previous book is at the printers before you start on the new one?

Too many snarky options.

Mental Overload impending.

Well, c'mon. Seriously. How many times do you walk into a fan forum, and expect to see the ACTUAL person posting?

I strolled through the Ornery American many times. I never once interacted with Orson Scott Card.

I would just like to say that I, for one, would be MORE than glad to hear about your real-life experiences, and I wouldn't find them as boring as wet toast at all.

OK, well... let's take these in order.

Covers: I get very little input. The editors ask for ideas and reference photos and a synopsis about a year ahead of the publication date and I hand that over. Marketing then decides what they think will look good and sell and they send that on to the artist (Chris McGrath). Chris usually does a couple of versions and they pick one, show it to me, just to be polite, and then tweak it a bit to fit the cover design elements like title, quotes, and so on, on it and make it all pretty and "oo... I want to buy that..." If you want to see more Chris artwork, you can visit his site: christianmcgrath.com/. It's pretty cool and you'll probably see a lot of familiar covers (Chris is a very hard working guy.)

Book 5: Umm... Andrew, you're going to have to wait until I'm done with the revision of Book 4 (due Jan 15). I promise to kill you. Gruesome may have to do. Generally I don't start writing the next book until the revision of the previous one is done. It's just safer....

Me: Umm... yeah it's really me. Because I'm less busy than Orson. And I like fans. And stuff like that. Author, y'know: insecure, hermit, spends all her time in front of a computer.... Someday I really need to get a proper link to this place up on the website.... right now it's kind of hidden. But yeah, it's really me.

Process and stuff like that: You might want to start a thread with a specific question and I'm more than glad to answer it in as much detail as you can stand.

Oh, I forgot about the cover model question.

No, she's not what I had in mind. She's younger, cuter, and a lot curvier, but she sells books! (And she's French.) No, I've never met her. She's a friend and regular model of Chris's.

It's a sci-fi tradition to have the women on the covers be better built than the characters. Going all the way back to the Edgar Rice Burroghs books.

I mean seriously, Dejah Thoris was supposed to be slender and lithe (as I recall). You look at the cover for the books and her boobs get places an hour before she does.
