Author Q&A

Why did this author take part in the A to Z Challenge the year that your book was "given life"?   
As I said in my 2015 theme reveal, I wanted to inspire and teach others. I also hoped to make new friends. (http://jlennidornerblog.what-are-they.com/2015/03/23/my-a-to-z-theme-reveal-2015-atozchallenge-contains-setting-writetip/)
It was also the first year I volunteered to help the A to Z Team (joining under Arlee's Ambassadors). (http://jlennidornerblog.what-are-they.com/2015/02/06/atozchallenge-i-volunteer-as-tribute/)

Why did this author start blogging?   
This is answered in my very first blog post.
"You may wonder why I started a blog. I may wonder that too! Actually, this blog was started because I heard about the A to Z challenge from some nanowrimo friends."

Brief tip on writing:    
Is the Setting a Character in your writing? #writetip from @JLenniDorner http://writeeditpublishnow.blogspot.com/2015/11/wepff-winner-j-lenni-dorner-talks.html

Where did the idea for this book come from, other than the alphabet and the challenge?   
The idea came from some post by literary agents during a MSWL chat. They were looking for books where the setting was a character. I knew how to do that, so I turned it into a month of blog posts. Then I figured I'd also make it into a book.

What writing goal do you hope to accomplish this year?   
My biggest writing goal this year is to publish two books in 2019.

As a reader, what most motivates you to buy a new book to read?
A recommendation from a trusted source, reading something interesting about the book, or the book being by an author I like.

Why should we read your book?
You should read "Preparing to Write Settings that Feel Like Characters" if you're interested in writing a different kind of setting, one that is more memorable and irreplaceable in a story. Many writers, and role-playing gamers, create character sheets for the individuals in their stories. This book will prepare you to make the same organizational chart for your setting.
