I decided to consult the Internet for common author interview questions, then interviewed myself!

- Why did you write your book?
I wrote it because I had a story to share with the world. Writing is my forte, so it seemed like a natural path to follow.
- What inspired you?
A large part of my inspiration came from science fiction works such as Star Wars (movies and books), as well as animation. The largest, however, was from my time as a sci-fi roleplayer on the Internet. Without that experience, Riesel would not be as it is today.
- How did you settle on this story?
It was the best thing I could think of at the...

I told my book characters about another questionnaire. I failed to tell them it was a dating quiz. Oops.
1) What do you do for work? - 
Runge: Retrieval specialist and wetwork. I like saying that because it sounds fancy.
Ramy: He means bounty hunter and assassin. Same for me, minus the last part.
Runge: You do assassinations, too.
Ramy: I...don't like to advertise it. It's not fun for me...unlike how it is for you.
Runge: As I said in the last quiz, life is a video game, and I'm aiming for the high score.
Ramy: Lifetime incarceration in a hypermax facility, I see.
Runge: Yeah, probably one of the ones on a planet that's orbiting way too close ...

Another deviantArt questionnaire featuring my book's two bounty hunter "protagonists", Runge Margavo and Ramy Dusotes!

Runge: All day, every day.
Ramy: Not on this planet. Next.
Runge: A long time ago.
Ramy: May 7.
Runge: If it's female, mildly intelligent, and not fat, I'm all over it.
Ramy: As I said in Question A.
Runge: Nosemja Sweet Ale.
Ramy: Water.
Runge: That's boring. You're boring, Ramy.
Ramy: No, I'm sober.

This is a questionnaire thing I did on deviantArt. Fun!

Totally had to do this for the characters of my book, Riesel Tales: Two Hunters. Behold: everyone's favorite loopy bounty hunter duo Runge and Ramy answer a questionnaire.
1. What is your name?
Runge: Runge Margavo. Are we done yet?
Ramy: Ramy Dusotes. Please pardon my partner's insanity.
2. Do you know why you were named that?
Runge: Because my dad was drunk and my mom went with it. Or something. Best guess.
Ramy: My parents never really told me. They never told me a lot of things, actually.
 3. Are you single or taken?
Runge: Never...

Got tired of the plain gray-and-green, so I added techy background images with lots of blue. Does it not feel and taste as though you were submerged in a pool filled with blueberries and electricity? Rejoice in this celebrated wavelength.

Along with a retooling of the main navigation bar, I've added a new section: the Insanity Cupboard. This is where I'll be putting flash fiction (short-short stories) which may or may not be canon, and these stories may or may not have anything to do with the RTTH continuity. It's like a bag of candy that also contains cheese balls, croutons, rice, and overcooked French fries. Who knows what you might find! It's all for fun and promotional deliciousnessitude. Accessible via the Behind the Scenes button. Pop on over and partake in the amusement.
