Olivie Blake is Not Writing, Sep. 14, 2022: TA6 Q&A for The Thirsty Collective, Some Tumblr Woes

I, my dagger, and the oddly close angle that I was apparently fine with return to chat in reply to asks/reviews/comments in a series of boldly shameless rambles wherein I, Olivie Blake, am not writing. Today's topics include a look at THE ATLAS SIX in paperback (0:52), some books I'm excited about (1:33), a TA6 Q&A for The Thirsty Collective (and for non thirsters, some thoughts in here about the variability of pacing, 5:24), convincing your dad to let you do stuff (not my finest answer, warning you now, 19:43), learning how to do things other people usually learn in school (22:31), and moving on when your ex leaves you with a puzzle (e.g., whatever THAT was All About, 24:33).

(Re-uploaded because iMovie betrayed me...) I, my dagger, and my egregiously loud air conditioning unit return to chat in reply to asks/reviews/comments in a series of boldly shameless rambles wherein I, Olivie Blake, am not writing. Today's topics include some forthcoming YA fantasy on my mind (0:42), a first look at the ALONE WITH YOU IN THE ETHER galley and a reminder of why I cannot send you the original paperback even if you ask me very nicely and/or offer me your firstborn (2:51), a note about pirated paperbacks and merch (6:40), some news about the ONE FOR MY ENEMY and MASTERS OF DEATH releases (9:50), and a rapid-fire Q&A on editing techniques, focusing on one draft concept, ice cream, and macrame (12:30).
