Trying this again, y’all: yesterday my friend, the charming John Corey Whaley (2011’s Michael L. Printz AND William C. Morris Award winner for his fantastic novel Where Things Come Back) posted an interview with me about tMoCP and writing novels in general and favorite songs and a bunch of other stuff. These interviews with the current Morris noms (conducted by past winners) are kind of a grand tradition with the Morris folks—one I find wholly delightful. Thing is: that version of the interview from yesterday was wicked hard to read (tiny, tiny, squinty-making font). So, JCW posted another version in much larger font, and you can find it by clicking the image above. Or, you know, by clicking here: http://www.johncoreywhaley.com/2013/01/morris-award-finalist-interview-emily-m-danforth/

A CAM POST interview for the Montana Public Radio program “The Write Question.” Lots of discussion of rural life for LGBTQ teens, as well as a (lengthy) reading from the novel.

The most excellent folks over at Autostraddle recently conducted their tMoCP book club, and as part of it I answered 36 (or maybe 38, it’s all a bit fuzzy) smart, thoughtful, funny CAM POST related questions on everything from recent dyke films that a 2012 Cam might opt for as a tool of seduction (rather than The Hunger, that is), to the autobiographical elements of the novel, to my reparative therapy research, to Cam’s personal tumblr, and even the exact nature of Coley’s sexuality. Those Autostraddlians (Autostraddlers?) are some savvy, engaged readers, and their wit and warmth in the comments section reveals as much.

Erika Frederickson at the Missoula Independent wrote one helluvan article about CAM POST. It’s got selections from the novel, portions of an interview with me, and even illustrations. I feel very, very lucky to have had tMoCP so generously treated and positioned within the landscape of western/Montanan literature.

The wonderful Malinda Lo (author of the fantastic queered Cinderella re-imagining ASH—as well as several other acclaimed novels) interviews me for her #gayYA series for Pride Month. We talk about homophobia vs. heteronormativity; coming-out novels vs. coming-of-age novels; and even some reader-responses to CAM POST.
