A guest post by my friend and colleague, Jaime Buckley.
I lie for a living.
I know, I know, not the best opening line for a guest post—but you’re awake now, right?
Besides, that’s not…technically true anyway (See? Fibbing by the third sentence.) It’s more like shaping perspectives.
You see, I write fantasy fiction for a living. My job is to entertain. Specifically, I get your attention and then do what it takes to KEEP your attention. Along the way, I strive to make you laugh, cry, maybe throw in a scream or two if I’m feeling ambitious…but the point is, always to get your attention and keep it.
In the end, I can promise you three things about 99% of my encounters:
- You will have a good time when you hang out with me;
- You will never forget me, and;
- You’ll like me…and choose to be my friend.
No, that’s not arrogance. I promise (says the liar). It’s confidence.
Now, why is that?
