Good morning everybody! Yes, I’m still in the A to Z challenge. Yes, I’m still doing interviews with writers who signed up for Camp Nanowrimo. And today the spotlight falls on Rebekah Loper and her series, “Undoing Chronicles.”
How did you find out about Camp Nanowrimo?
I’ve been a NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaison for three years now, so I was hearing information about Camp NaNoWriMo before the general public was, though I was not in any way part of the planning. I just got to gawk at all the plans as we were gradually fed information and then, finally, a release date for the event!
Have you participated in Camp Nano before? If so, would you call it a success?
I have half-heartedly participated, and I would not call it a success, haha.
Do you know what you’re going to write this year?
Well, I thought I was, and then three weeks before the event, my computer power cord died, and I ended up being without a computer at all for almost two weeks. Since I’m working on finishing a novel that I want to start querying this summer, I’ve switched out what I had planned to do for Camp NaNo with what I now NEED to do for Camp NaNo to stick with my goal.
What’s your favorite part of your Camp project?
My *ahem* 5k make-out scene. And the prologue. Everyone loves the villain (Lord Trist) in the prologue (though he has very little role in the book, but I think he’ll play a huge role in book two). Every single person who reads the prologue has come away from it and said “What a creep!” *evil cackles*
Sneaky Ninja question…
If I answered, I’d have to kill you.
(Ahem.) What one thing are you most thankful for?
My imagination. I don’t know what I’d do with myself without these stories.
I write fantasy as a general rule, and I love telling people “It’s like Lord of the Rings, but darker.” and watching the expressions on their faces. I blog at http://blackanddarknight.wordpress.com, and am a Rabid Rainbow Ferret. Just keep an eye out on my blog for more info on that last one 😀

Thanks for dropping by, Rebekah!
