Reflections of a working writer and reader



Five Questions: Donavan Hall

1. Why do you blog?
Self-promotion. I want people to find out about my books and read them. The blog is kind of like a combination advert/rough draft.

2. Which author and/or book has most influenced you?
I have shifting influences, but the big three are Henry Miller, Alain Robbe-Grillet, and Vladimir Nabokov.

3. Which three blogs do you most visit?
Honestly? Aside from the ones I write for, I visit (to read for pleasure) Appellation Beer, Brookston Beer Guide, and Beer Therapy.

4. Why do you read fiction?
To know that I’m not alone . . . But seriously, I love language and the sound of words. Literary language is music.

5. What makes you laugh?
My son laughing.
