This went live today (http://fantasyinmotion.wordpress.com/2012/07/30/author-interview-michael-j-sullivan/).

Some of the questions:

If you had to pick one, what would be your favourite book/author?
Which fantasy authors have really stood out for you in recent times? What do you think gives them that edge over others?
When you approach planning in your own writing, do you fly by the seat of your pants or set everything out in detail?
How important do you think it is to research a project before writing?
Seeing as how you started out going down the self-publishing route (and had great success), what advice would you give to someone whoís thinking of taking that route now?
Do you find any particular types of scene more difficult to write than others? Some authors struggle with fight scenes while others fly through them, what about you?
What do you think about writerís block? Do you believe it exists or is it a signal of a lack of research/planning?
Have there been any times when you just havenít felt like writing? How do you overcome those feelings to get something down on the page?
Could you tell us a little about The Riyria Revelations?
Where did the idea/inspiration for Royce and Hadrianís characters come from?
Are you able to say what youíre working on at the moment?
