Evil Steve: All right everyone we're back with everyone's favourite author that no-one has ever heard of, S.J. Magill.
S.J. Magill: I didn't even want to come back...
ES: Hush now, I have more questions. So you currently have three short stories, and two novellas. Is there something wrong with writing a full-length novel?
SJ: Not at all, I have one ready to go, but I thought I should work up some hype before releasing my full-length work.
ES: Well, considering you're interviewing yourself, I think we can all tell how that's going.
SJ: Fair enough. Next question, please.
ES: Which is your favourite colour of Skittle?
ES: ... I don't think you fully understood the question.
SJ: ... Orange?
ES: Well done. So, your first novella was Love and Lycanthrope. Wouldn't you say that alliterative titles are a bit 1800's?
SJ: Not at all.
ES: What was your inspiration to write a romance novel? Is it because you're a bit girly?
SJ: I wouldn't call it a 'romance novel'
ES: I would.
SJ: Well you're wrong. It's a romantic comedy with werewolves. The setting is a village high in the mountains. It was inspired by the game Skyrim, which I was playing at the time.
ES: Werewolves and a snowy-setting? Sounds like you were asking to be sued.
SJ: Those are about the only similarities.
ES: That's probably true. Skyrim wasn't a sissy romcom.
SJ: It's not 'sissy'.
ES: If you say so. So what about this latest one: The Battlemage. It's a bit different for you.
SJ: What do you mean?
ES: Well, the other ones had jokes, and funny bits. This one is downright creepy.
SJ: Well that was the idea.
ES: Oh thank god, I thought you had taken a blow to the head or something and you thought you were being funny, but just weren't.
SJ: No no, this one was meant to be a horror.
ES: So what are you working on now?
SJ: I've finished the first draft of my third novella, Licking Walls in the Dark. It's about a dwarf who was born and raised in a mine. He uses his sense of taste to seek out deposits of valuable metals in the mines. That's where the title came from.
ES: Gosh, that sounds thrilling, and I'd love to hear more about it, but we're all out of time. Thanks for stopping by. And to my audience: next week we'll see if we can get someone whose work you might have actually read. Goodbye for now.
