Getting personal with Leo X Robertson

Interview with me on the blog Roadie Notes! Enjoy 🙂

Roadie Notes

I’m a 28 year-old guy living in Oslo. If you live in Oslo too, send me a message, let’s hang out and talk about books!

I hope you enjoy my books*. I’d love to reach as wide an audience as possible, and YOU can help me out! Buy a book, write a review, spread the word in any way you like!! For example, my debut novel Findesferas is available to read for FREE. If you prefer, contact me directly and I’ll send you a copy in your ebook format of choice. For this I send you a stark, dry and Scandinavian joy 🙂

My lovely readers have compared my writing to that of Irvine Welsh, JG Ballard, Jonathan Lethem and Raymond Carver amongst others. I think of it as David Foster Wallace and John Waters’ demented genderless zygote, but it changes as I read and write new things

Deadman’s Tome: Campfire Tales books arrived!

The latest arrival to the Oslo office is this pair of Deadman’s Tome: Campfire Tales books!

Full disclosure: I bought 5 of the blue ones because they have my story in it 😉 It’s called “Cool Kids” and it’s about a dude who attends a wedding and reminisces about the petty vengeances he’s taken on people in the past—and he’s desperate to talk to the bride…

Thanks to Marc Molino for providing the cover art, major thanks to Jesse Dedman of Deadman’s Tome for getting this pair of books into the world!

Here’s where you can buy your own!

Hope your week is off to a great start—I know mine is!

I hope that these tips will save much frustration in the editing process as well as making you a better writer. And maybe, dare I say, a better person.

The decision to write doesn’t come with an editor.  Unfortunately, we writers quickly learn that writing is editing, the single most important and time consuming step in the process. Regrettably, it is one where we can be our own worst enemy.

1edit04Conscripting friends or relatives to do our editing is an ineffective workaround. There’s a big difference between a kindhearted (and patient) beta reader and a proper editor.
