"John-Paul is really into interaction... he wants you to be part of it"
In this video, the great novelist Tahir Shah says that I like to get people involved in my creative projects. It made me so happy that this aspect of what I do is so obvious to Tahir.
One of the things that most excites me about attempting to publish What If The Queen Should Die? is the crowd-funding model. I love the danger that it shares with impro - the delicious danger of public humiliation if it doesn't work. But more importantly I love that crowdfunding because it allows people who like my work to join in. And I hope that might include you.
(As well as Tahir, this film shows Pernille Sorensen and Robert Twigger, improvisers who helped to workshop my novel. The interviews were by Ben Spencer.)
