An interview with me at Nine Day Wonder

The website Nine Day Wonder has just posted an interview with me. Here’s an excerpt that addresses one of the most common questions I’m asked: DW: E.C.

Fine Lifestyles Regina has feature article about me

Yes, I know, I edited the thing, but honestly, the story wasn’t my idea: it was publisher Randy Liberet’s. And since I have a new book coming out (November 15 is the new release date for Song of the Sword) I’d have to have been an idiot to let modesty get in the way of …

The Nipawin Journal reports on my reading there last week…

…and I have to say it’s one of the best articles of this sort I’ve seen anywhere. Thanks to the reporter, Joel Cherry! (Oh, sure, there’s one instance of the dreaded “one-T Willett” misspelling of my last name, but if I worried over much about that very common typo I’d go crazy.) The story begins: …
