What’s your favorite book of the ones you’ve written?
I won’t say I love all my books the same, because I don’t, but my feelings about them are complicated.
Some books I love while I’m thinking about them in advance. Some books I love while I’m writing them. Some books are pure torture all the way through, and I only have fond feelings for them when they’re in my hands. Some books I will hate forever, and other books make me grin for no apparent reason.
But I’d never want to weight a reader’s experience of a book one way or the other, so I don’t want to say which is which.
