Author Interview with Andrew Saxsma

9781482369953_p0_v1_s260x420Author interviews are back! I promised you a return to more variable content and this is me coming through, though a bit more slowly than I’d hoped.

Today I’ve got an interview with author Andrew Saxsma. His book is science fiction and is called Lonely Moon. Here’s the blurb:

Earth lies in ruins, destroyed by an unknown enemy. Humanity flees their burning homeworld, seeking a safe place to hide before they can be hunted down and eradicated.

Alliance Captain Michael Hane watches helplessly while his wife and unborn child fall victim to the random slaughter of Earth. With time running out, he is burdened by the last bits of humanity to find a way to stop this menace before it wipes the galaxy clean of every last human being.

Author Interview with Emily Ward

Today I have something a little unusual for you. I don’t usually host much YA here, because I write Adult books, but I’ve made an exception for the author who I’m featuring today. Emily Ward is a friend I made over at Critique Circle who is a wonderful writer, and a great peer to trade chapters with. Her first novel, Promising Light, is an inventive fantasy story rife with magic and shapeshifters. Read the first chapter here.

Here’s the blurb:

Grace began a secret courtship with Dar for the thrill of doing something against her father, the king’s general. She hadn’t planned on falling in love with him. When Dar suddenly leaves her, she searches for answers, reluctant to let him go.

Everyone seems determined to keep the truth from her—until she’s kidnapped by Dar’s family. They’re shape changers who claim she can break a curse set on them ten years ago by the Protectors, a group of noblemen determined to stifle magic in the name of safety.

Torn between two worlds, Grace isn’t sure who to trust. If the curse endures, Dar’s family could die out forever. But to help them, she’ll have to leave behind everything she knows.

Book One of The Protectors Series. Set two years after The Protectors prequels.

Author Interview with Barry Napier

Today I have an interview with author Barry Napier. He’s here to share the first in a paranormal/horror series called Everything Theory.

Check out the blurbage:

Gabe is a disenchanted twenty year-old that has been dragged down for most of his life by the bizarre legacy his deceased father left behind. At the age of seventeen, Gabe was contacted by government employees that once worked with his father, offering him an outrageous salary if he would take part in an effort to revitalize his father’s work. Bit by bit, Gabe discovers that the work his father was involved in was incredibly strange. His father was viewed by his peers as a mad scientist of sorts, dabbling in controversial projects concerning genetics manipulation, advanced space exploration, time travel, and ESP.

Cold Compass, the first book in the Everything Theory series, opens as Gabe is tasked with his first assignment as an unofficial member of a shadow organization known as the Center for Scientific Anomalous Research (CSAR). With the assistance of a CSAR official posing as an FBI agent, Gabe travels to the small town of Hasper, North Carolina where people are being killed by an ancient evil that lurks beneath the town. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Gabe learns that it could all very well be the result of one of his father’s failed studies.

Along the way, Gabe must also contend with the fact that he is beginning to see ghosts and is being hunted down by an enigmatic figure that calls himself Garrison Sleet. As he slowly unravels the mysteries of his father, Gabe slowly understands that even the evil lurking beneath Hasper is tied to not only his father’s work, but to some integral part of him as well.

Onwards, the interview!

Author Interview with Suzanne Robb

Please welcome to my little corner of the web, author Suzanne Robb. She’s got an interesting book to share, a short story collection by the name of Were-wolves, Apocalypses, and Genetic Mutation Oh my!

Take a gander at the blurb:

In the opening story Welcome to the Future, a teenager feels he has no place in life. His parents and school principal agree. He crosses paths with a doctor who has stolen the DNA of some of the smartest people both dead and alive, and injects it into the brain of the willing teenager with disastrous results

In The Moonlight Killer, a man takes a shortcut home only to find himself attacked by a wolf. In a drunken stupor he decides to bite the wolf back and sets in motion a whole new mythology.

Finally, B.I.T.E. is the story of a dysfunctional family as they try to fend off the impending apocalypse. They fight giant decayed squirrels, cobra sized men, and randomly assembled body parts, bickering the whole way to the end of the world.

And now, on to the good stuff:

1. What’s the first word of your book? (You can exclude articles, pronouns or prepositions.)

Pulp, okay it really isn’t pulp, but wouldn’t that be a neat word to start a story with? The first word is actually “Blink.” (more…)
