TimTrimble

 

I recently interviewed Tim Trimble, author of Zegin’s Adventures in Epsilon which is now available (click here).  This is a printed edition of his first two works Zegin’s Infection (click here) and Zegin’s Abduction (click here) with added bonus content.  Tim is my kind of guy, a computer geek who loves to write novels.  We cover everything from why he is Bill Gates writing under a pen name, to the Pythagorean Theorem and why it is utterly useless in real world applications, to who would win in a battle royale hackathon between Turing and Zuckerberg on a Raspberry Pi.  You can find links to his work and contact information at the bottom of the interview.  Here’s how it went: (more…)

VIGILANTE ASSHOLE FINAL

Much has transpired in the past week or two.  First, my sci-fi, dystopian novella Upload: Origin of Bannon is free on Amazon 1/18 – 1/20 so go out and download a free copy (click here).  Reviews are always nice but are not necessary.

**GIVEAWAY**

I’m also going to be giving away five signed paperback copies of my new novel Vigilante Asshole: A Superhero Novel.  I’ll be sending the copies out one week before the release date so you’ll have a chance to get it before it hits Amazon.  Don’t miss out.  To enter, simply share on Facebook or retweet on Twitter and then go to the side bar on the website and enter your email address.  I’ll be selecting five winners at random and I’ll notify them via email for contact information.

I won’t spam your inbox, only send you updates with special offers and news of my releases or author interviews.  This should be sometime in February or March and I’ll set a hard release date as I near completion of the novel.  That’s all for now.  Keep checking in as I plan on posting a few author interviews and announce more upcoming news in the weeks before the release.  Thanks to everyone for their support.

Travis Hill

Travis Hill is the author of Diabolus (see my review here) and many other works that he exclaims are not similar to Diabolus.  I suppose I’ll take his word for it, since I can’t be certain.  What I do know is that Diabolus was a fascinating read.  I suspect it had more to do with the ridiculously awesome interview questions I carefully spent five minutes crafting after he’d written the book, but I can’t steal all the glory.   I won’t ramble any longer, but yeah, it was all me.  I said it.  Travis is a funny guy and we covered everything in this interview from writing genres, to why Led Zeppelin IS the greatest band of all time, and which two historical figures should get bloody in the octagon.  Here’s how it went: (more…)

Paladin's Odyssey

Bruce Fottler is the author of Paladin’s Odyssey (buy it here on Amazon)a sci-fi pandemic thriller that I have not read; however, that kick-ass cover art is calling my name.  Look at it, it’s begging to be read.  Oh, if my list weren’t so long I could get to it sooner.  In the meantime, Bruce agreed to answer my questions about his book (among other things).  True to form, I also asked him unrelated but important questions.  We talked about equity valuations, how to skate internal controls and defraud multi-national corporations, and the art of toilet paper roll replacement.  Here’s how it went down: (more…)

howey, hugh

It was early afternoon last Friday at the office.  I was waiting for information from about four different people (I needed it to continue on a project) that I was sure would arrive later around 4 p.m. as they all left for the weekend.  Then, I’d have the pleasure of staying late and working into the evening.  In my bored state I thought, why not throw up a Hail Mary and see what Hugh Howey is up to, maybe he’ll answer some questions for my readers.  Much to my surprise, I had a response within about two hours that said he’d be delighted and for me to send my questions on over.  I was completely unproductive the rest of the day–doing multiple river dances and whatnot in utter elation–so if I’m jobless before the Thanksgiving holiday I may have to hit him up for a loan.

If you’re unfamiliar with Howey, he is author of the NY Times and USA Today best-selling WOOL series.  Though that hardly encompasses his body of work as he writes in multiple genres, and very well I might add.  Before becoming a best-selling author, Howey spent a decade as the captain of a yacht, sailing around the world, doing odd jobs, and working in a book store among many other things.

Amethyst Chronicles: Winter's Kiss

I got a chance to talk to author K.G. Stutts about her new book–the first in a sci-fi romance series–coming out Friday, Amethyst Chronicles: Winter’s Kiss.  You can check it out on Amazon (click here).  Be sure and check out her work, we had a lot of fun covering everything from her book, to why she is catless, how we both love bacon, and her secret dance moves that cure writer’s block (ok, maybe not, but I tried).  You can find her contact info and social networking pages at the bottom of the interview.  Let’s get to it.
