“A part of what I feel is not great is when authors — or authors and their agents, or agents on behalf of their authors — come to me and they want me to design their books because they think it will solve all their problems for them. And now I can safely say, I designed my own book cover for my novel and it was not a runaway success.”

“I live with a real writer. A real writer is someone for whom it is much, much more natural and doesn’t have to work at it nearly as much. And certainly someone who is much better read than I am.”
