    "these authors made me want to hear their work"

    Having 2 authors interview each other was an innovative way to create interest in their writing. After listening to their conversation I went searching for one of their books to download. And I intend to listen to more!

    "Delightful!"

    What a surprise to find this. I enjoyed listening in on this great conversation about writing. It's so intelligent and entertaining. I hadn't thought of Connie Willis in years--I don't know why, but it seems I have some catching up to do with her books. I'll be checking into Carrie Vaughn's work, too.

    "Fascinating Discussion & Writing Perspecives"

    Two very smart, interesting writers discussing how they got that way, what they do now, and what they might did differently. Interesting discussion from start to finish.

    "It really is a conversation"
    Any additional comments?

    This really is a conversation, with the two ladies talking shop about writing their books. I enjoyed the insight, and they gave some advice for new writers. I thought that the time management tip was pretty good, and I've heard it applied to more than just writing before. :)

    "thin soup"
    Would you try another book from Connie Willis and Carrie Vaughn and/or the narrator?

    no


    Would you ever listen to anything by Connie Willis and Carrie Vaughn again?

    I have never read any connie Willis, I wait for every new release by Carrie Vaughn and continue to enjoy her work.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I assumed the ladies were speaking for themselves


    Any additional comments?

    I really thought I would gain more insight into Carrie's writing motivations and learn about a new writer. Couldn't finish listening, got bored.

    My preference for a good story is something totally unusual and not run of the mill stuff. Give me something I haven't heard before.

    "Interesting"

    Got some good info from it about writing. A bit of a love fest but it has some good points to ponder.
