Ask Andrew - Stress

Dear Andrew

What do you do to destress when you're on a deadline?


Dear Dawn

When I'm on a deadline, which is almost always, I set daily goals for myself and then break the down into manageable pieces to work on during the day.  When I achieve each writing step, I allow myself some time to relax.  Often I get to read for half an hour or I work in the yard.

But quite often, yeah I know I'm showing my nerdy side, I play Pokémon Go.  I find it fun and it gets
me out of the house to walk and search for Pokémon.  I have been playing almost wince the game was released and I have two accounts.  The one account has collected one of almost every Pokémon available and the other isn't far behind.  Dominic thinks I'm completely nuts and obsessed, but it lets my mind relax and I have walked nearly 5000 kilometers playing the game.

I have a group of people in town that I play with.  We do raids together.  They're my Poke-friends, and one of them is going to have a baby soon, so he's the Poke-daddy.  You get the idea.  After playing for a half hour or so, I'm ready to go home and back to work.

Ask Andrew is your chance to ask questions of a gay romance author.  The questions can be about the writing process in general, writing sex scenes, gay men, sex, characters in romance, characters having sex... okay you probably get the picture.    I promise to answer your questions as frankly and with as much humor as I possibly can.

So if you have a question, please send it to  This is different from my usual email so your questions don't get lost.  I will answer one question a week.

Please remember this is meant to be all in fun.  (I was going to say good, clean fun, but who wants that.)    So send me your questions and let's see what mischief we can get into.
