Read on to discover my Interview with this amazing author!
Hello, James. Pull up a chair, relax, and get ready to be grilled. 😛
Thanks for having me, John. I appreciate the opportunity.
First question. Tell us about your newest release – story line, genre, and a character or two that the reader should be on the lookout for.
My newest release is my first post-apocalyptic zombie horror story. It follows a dark and gritty character named Archer. He is a cold-hearted survivor who shoots first and asks questions later. He’s a hard man and likes to be alone. But he ends up with an 8-year-old girl tagging along with him. He wants nothing more than to be rid of her, but the present circumstances just don’t allow it.
What’s next on your to-do-list as far as your writing career?
I actually have several projects on the go. I just finished writing book two in my dark, paranormal erotica series The Death Chronicles — When Death Sets Us Free. I am still in the tweaking and editing stage, but I’m also close to having half of book three of the series completed as well. The story is just bleeding from me.
Roger Water’s (Pink Floyd) came out with a solo song in the late 1980’s called The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking (Great Song – Check it Out!!). Name one pro and con of writing and explain yourself?
One pro? You get to play God. I mean seriously, you get to create worlds and people within it and you get to force them to do whatever you want. You try that in real life and well… I have a few restraining orders that tell me I am no longer allowed to.
Con, editing… the editing process is murder for me. It’s slow and grueling.
Readers love to hear about Heroes and Villains. Who’s the most outstanding character you have, and the biggest stinker?
I’d have to say Jamus Willms from my Unforgivable series is my most outstanding character. What he goes through in the story is heart wrenching, but how he does it is simply glorious.
Biggest villain would have to be Salvatore Kain from my Death Chronicles series. He is the first vampire to walk the earth and is a vicious bastard.
Hollywood comes calling with a big check for your book —- but they want to tweak the story line and change/eliminate a couple of characters. Do you immediately accept the money, or take a chance and refuse their filthy lucre in the hopes they’ll change their minds?
Honestly I would take the money. The books will always remain the same and people will go see the movie and if they like it they will read the books and get the real story I created. Plus money is good. I need it.
Every writer has a mentor. Who is yours and how did they help you?
David Gemmel (may he rest in peace) He is one of the greatest fiction writers I have ever had the pleasure of reading. He creates unbelievable characters and his attention to detail is flawless. He tells a story like no one else. His Troy series are the only books I have read more then once. You won’t be disappointed.
Would you rather do without the internet, spell check, or Amazon? Pick One and tell us why.
Spell check, I guess. I have an editor and proof reader, they would just really earn their kibble.
What do you consider the worst part of being an author?
That’s it for the interview. Check out three of his select novels and do what you can to support an Indie author!!!
SYNOPSIS — What was supposed to be a lustful night of passion and sinful, sexual thrill turned bloody in a way he could never have imagined, revealing a predator that plagued the night and feasted on the living…
Fueled by the bleakest of hope and the haunting images of the past, Conner cleaves a path of retribution through the midnight world of vampires; dangling his morals and life in the balance to retain what little he has left of his former self, praying each step will bring him closer to finding ‘her’ and the one that took everything from him…
The book starts out with Connor in bed with two women, but you figure out pretty quickly that this is not your typical three-some. There’s a purpose behind it, and these women aren’t your average, everyday women.
As you keep reading, you learn that Connor once had a wife. They had a threesome with another female, and something really horrible happens. That woman wasn’t what you were expecting her to be either, and it turns deadly. And this is just the beginning of the book.
Until Death Do Us Part is a really dark, edgy read that will keep you enthralled, no pun intended. There’s enough action in this to keep even the hardest reader to please interested, and the sexual scenes are integrated so well that they really are a necessary part of the book. Definitely try this one out. You’ll be a fan.
Ten years has passed since an infectious virus nearly consumed all of mankind. Millions died, millions more became infected, changed, became mindless, feral hunters bent on the consumption of living flesh.
Archer was a solitary man, scavenging what he could to survive off the ruins of the world that no longer existed. A world gone mad, where those who still lived were just as great of threat as those who were infected. Without knowing it he finds himself in possession of a map that leads to a hidden sanctuary with the possible means to stop it all. All he has to do, is get her there alive…
We follow Archer in a world where the Apocalypse consumes everything and everyone. There’s not a person that has not became a victim in some manner, but reaching the humanity within themselves is a forgotten ability as each character struggles to survive. Which is Archer’s number one goal, until he comes upon a girl who claims to have possession of the one thing that will help all of humanity and cure the disease.
I loved reading and following Archer as his path has so many obstacles, that seem to want to take him down in any way possible. The surprise along the way is what will grab readers, and remind them that humanity is never out of reach, it might just take one girl to find it.
I feel that there is no particular ‘type’ of audience for this books. To me, it’s one that everyone will enjoy, and just as I am, anticipate the next.
Haunted by her dreams, Sofia inherits more than her father’s thirst for vengeance with the discovery of a miraculous herb among his possessions. However, she finds the peace offered by this infamous root comes at a crippling cost: an addiction that leaves her owing more than life is worth in the kingdom of Faer- Tri.
Indebted to gypsies, she enters a war in the capital city of Delmar where every shadow promises death by friend or foe alike. In the chaos, Sofia fights to separate reality from fantasy while only one thing remains certain… she will not rest until the king lies dead at her feet…
