Wow! I really said that? My most extensive interview yet.

An interview I did with fellow writer Gus Sanchez was published today.

It’s by far the most extensive interview about me written to date, and Gus just has this way of pulling stuff out of you that you’d rather not talk about. Like, for instance, my time in harm’s way…

I read the interview this morning and was surprised at how much I had said, which is probably the highest compliment you could give an interviewer.

Take a look at it here: Getting to Know You, Fellow Writers: Stan Mitchell. And, please, take the time to thank him, if you can. Thanks!

Stan R. Mitchell

Oak Ridge, Tenn.

P.S. Please accept the greatest gift I can give, a book I believe to be worth $10,000.

P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novels a success. I seriously couldn’t have done it with everyone’s support. Thanks to your help,, Little Man, and the Dixon County War  has gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here)! And my second novel, Sold Outhas also done well, going as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War (see here and here)! Thanks a million to my awesome friends, and if you’ve stumbled on my blog, you can learn more about both books here.

    1. Thanks, Tim! I’ve said it before, but it’s worth saying again: Your encouragement has meant tons to me, and I see myself as in training to be a future Tim: A man everyone likes, who hand washes the dishes and lives in the moment as well as anyone I know…


  1. Great article! Great questions AND great responses! I never realized how smart and intelligent you are! I thought you were just all eye candy! I feel so shallow!


  2. Honestly, I wasn’t trying to pry stuff out of you. The way I interview, I see it as a conversation, just two people talking. I’m interesting in knowing about my subjects, so I’d rather ask them more meaningful questions rather than, “What’s your favorite book,” or, “If you could be a tree…”


    1. Crap. I hope it didn’t come out that way with how I wrote it above…. : (

      I just never talk about some of that stuff — especially the Albania mess. And man, I was so ready for the “If you could be a tree…” question…


      1. No, no, I totally understood what you were saying. I’ve read a lot of interviews where the questions seem really routine, and I think to some extent you were probably expecting that. But I don’t do routine. Plus, I really wanted to know more about the Albania mess; that’s one king hell of a story to share, and it would be a shame not to share it more.


    1. Good thing we’re friends then…

      So, when you need help on plot, you’re directed — no, ordered; like, Marine Corps screaming ordered — to immediately email me and I’ll see if I can get you moving forward. Sound like a deal? : )
