In most blog tours, a single author appears on a variety of blogs, moving around the Internet and allowing the readers of those blogs get to know the author.

In the Merry-Go-Round Blog Tour, the authors stay on their blogs and it's you, the reader, who takes the tour.

Each month, our participating authors from around the world agree to blog on a single topic throughout the month. By following the links in each month's post, you'll discover a whole bunch of new authors in a variety of genres, levels of experience, and styles of writing.

We hope you enjoy the trip and come back each month for a new spin around the globe.

Inner Workings of a Writer

November is self-interview month on the Blog Tour. So I will attempt to ask creative questions and give honest answers. I hope this will offer insight into my mind for myself as well. Here we go:

Were-Cats... In Space!

A pink and yellow spotted unicorn looks at me from across the desk. “So as a writer you probably get a lot of writing questions.”

I nod. “That’s true.”

The audience laughs.

“Well how about we don’t talk about your latest bestselling book, Werewolves on the Edge.” She lifts my latest tome up so the camera can get a good shot of the cover.

Getting to Know this blogger

Q. Why the Pen versus the Sword?
I’m willing to admit, I’m not much of a violent person. I believe that compromise wins arguments, not brute strength. Read More at:

Do you base your characters on real people? I avoid it. I have characters, which have got inspiration from real people, but I never use them as one-on-one. I develop them all myself and though I borrow line or two from friends, I find it unethical to base entire form on them. Not only because it can tare people apart, but because they trust me not to end up in my books and I respect them for it. I write fantasies, after all and it’s not easy to walk around being judged by some outsider’s view on your life. In your local newspaper there is a discussion over ending support for light reading in libraries to support more local writers. What do you think of it? You can read more of this from the blog.

A Psuedo-Holiday Letter from Zette

Today I should have been doing a self-interview for the Merry-Go-Round Blog Tour, but I couldn't quite get my head around the questions -- which is odd for someone who generally interviews authors for Vision. So I thought I would write a pseudo-holiday letter instead and let you know what's going on in my world.

A Self Interview

It’s that time of month again — the Forward Motion Merry-Go-Round Blog Tour! Yay! This month’s topic is a self-interview. I hate interviews, so I hope I’ll be gentle with myself. What do you think?

Q. Can you tell us something about what you’re working on?

As a matter of fact, I can! (Funny how that turns out, huh?)

See the answer and more on my blog, In Shadows.

Q&A: A day late and a dollar short. . .

Well, I've done it again.  Realized a day late that *yesterday* was my Merry-Go-Round Blog Tour posting day.  Sigh.

This month's topic is a self-interview.  So here's my go at a Q & A of things about me you might want to know.  I wanted to do something pithy and ironic, but I don't have that sense of comic timing nor do I do irony well.  I figured I'd just go with my typical earnest, serious self.  (Read more here)

while on break from NaNoWriMo

The timing for my turn on the blog tour worked out wonderfully, given today is my Friday Project day. That is, I'm taking it a little easier on the writing and I'm not focused on my main project. So I'm on break from the frenzy and, given this month's theme is "self-interview", I will split myself in half to ask me a few questions. Read more...

My Muse & I

'Evening. DMBonanno here. This month’s FM Merry Go Round topic is Self Interview. In an offshoot of that, I’d like to interview my Muse. The Muse might sound like an aspect of multiple personality disorder, but really, she’s a representation of how I compartmentalize aspects of my life. Plus, I never had an imaginary friend as a child. My Muse showed up about fifteen years ago when I moved out on my own. Or maybe it was that I could finally hear her.

Read the interview here.

Alex Who?

At some point this month I'll get around to interviewing myself. When I do, I'll update this post and you can find out a bit more about me (like why I didn't do this interview earlier despite having worked as a professional organizer).
