The Book Chums interview


Here’s a link to my latest interview at Book Chums, an Indian book lovers’ community site.

I’m interviewed by BookChums


Steven Lyle JordanI was recently interviewed by BookChums, one of India’s book-centric websites.  We talk about Sarcology and about my writing process… how I make a novel. Want to know how I work? Check it out.

I hope someone enjoys reading about how I put a book together; I know, when I read it, it sounds pretty simple.  I’ve never been one to make lofty statements about my “muse,” or having to attain some zen-like state in order to wrest carefully-crafted prose onto paper, etc.  My writing style is pretty much a clockwork machine that always works the same way… but it does work.

And readers don’t often have to pull out a dictionary to figure out what I’m talking about… but they enjoy the stories I concoct, the characters I create, and the worlds I build. My interview is featured in BookChums’ “toast to sci-fi fiction” newsletter, and my name appears on the same page as that of Valmiki, Shakespeare, Ovid, Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, J.G. Ballard, Arthur C. Clarke and Isaac Asimov… good company when you can get it.

Konichi-wa. I’m Steven Lyle Jordan, and I’ve been offered a rare opportunity. I am standing just outside of the space freighter Mary, featured in the novel My Life, After Berserker, and The Lens. I have been given permission to go on-board the Mary and speak to its cast—er, crew, about the upcoming novel, and anything else they want to talk about, before it is released! And as this is a sort-of pseudo kinda something like live feed, you, my MR friends, can also suggest questions for me to ask the crew, about anything you want! (And they may even answer you!)

Yeah! Cool, isn’t it? Just like a DVD extra! Continue reading

The following comprises an interview script I wrote for fun… because I don’t expect to get a chance to film it, unless I use puppets or something…

Int. Hallway

Steven Lyle Jordan (SLJ) walks down a deserted hallway with numbered doors on either side.  He is beside himself in excitement, and turns to speak over his shoulder at an unseen audience.


This is so exciting: My first televised interview!  When this airs, it should give my books sales a serious kick in the ass!  And can you imagine being interviewed by anyone better than…  Continue reading
