Simon Rose: Part Two - On Writing

The writing process, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, school presentations, the hardest things to write, comics, movies, ebooks, and much more. 

Check out the second part of the recent interview with Joshua Pantallerescoin which I discuss a range of topics including the ever-changing business of writing and publishing. Here's a short excerpt.

"With kids, you can’t give them a chance to put the book down. If they do, there’s no guarantee they’ll ever pick it up again, there are just too many distractions these days. You have to engage their interest right away. There’s no magical formula for it, but I say the first two or three chapters have to grab the reader. After they do, then you can slow down and tell your story a little, if you like."
