Awesome Indie: Doc Graystone and the Red Runes by Nicholas Olivo

Awesome Indie: Doc Graystone and the Red Runes by Nicholas Olivo

For more information, check out the Awesome Indies page I’m happy to share this interview with you today. Nicholas Olivo shares some interesting facts about his writing process and his favorite authors. Enjoy! What is your favorite book? The Stand, by Stephen King. When I was in high school they released an uncut version of the book with a bunch more characters and scenes that werenÂ’t included in the original. Each of the characters has a unique personality and motivation and you can tell whoÂ’s speaking even without dialog tags. What writers influenced you the most? Stephen King, Terry Brooks, Jim Butcher and Lester Dent. King for his characterizations, Brooks for his fantastic plots, Butcher for introducing me to urban fantasy, and Dent for the structure I followed when writing the Doc Graystone Adventures. What book are you reading now? IÂ’m listening to the audiobook of The Harvest, by Chuck Wendig. ItÂ’s the final book of a trilogy, and even though I just started, I can tell itÂ’s going to be a heck of a ride. Do you have a set writing schedule that you adhere to? I usually spend a few days sketching out what will happen in a story (or a few weeks if itÂ’s a novel). Once I have the plot and characters established, I write 2,000 words a day, every day, until itÂ’s done. If […]

Awesome Indie: Rain of Ash by Gwen Mitchell

Awesome Indie: Rain of Ash by Gwen Mitchell

For more information, check out the Awesome Indies page     I’m so happy to be able to share an interview with Gwen Mitchell today. Her book, Rain of Ash looks like a great mix of fantasy and romance. Best of all, she has an entire series planned to go with it. Enjoy! 1. Tell us about yourself. I work an office job to pay the bills and try to balance my free time between adventures with my friends/boyfriend and writing. When I’m stuck on a story, I cook, craft, and paint (or read!). Health and nutrition are my other passions, and I plan to go back to school for my MS in Nutrition. In the meantime, my life is about travel and experiences – filling the well. 2. What is your favorite book? If I have to pick just one, it’s still actually a trilogy: the first 3 Kushiel books by Jacqueline Carey. I love getting lost in the depth and richness of her world and characters. I’m on my 2nd or 3rd copies of them, and they are still well-worn because I reread them often. 3. Tell us about your book. Rain of Ash is about a reborn Zyne witch who has tried to escape her painful past, but gets pulled back in when she becomes the target of her family’s curse and her Oracle powers are […]

Sunday Street Team: Interview with Jessica Verdi

Sunday Street Team: Interview with Jessica Verdi

What You Left Behind by Jessica Verdi Published by Sourcebooks on August 4th 2015 Pages: 320 Format: ebook Source: Free for Review, Netgalley Goodreads ItÂ’s all RydenÂ’s fault. If he hadnÂ’t gotten Meg pregnant, she would have never stopped her chemo treatments and would still be alive. Instead, heÂ’s failing fatherhood one dirty diaper at a time. And itÂ’s not like heÂ’s had time to grieve while struggling to care for their infant daughter, start his senior year, and earn the soccer scholarship he needs to go to college.The one person who makes Ryden feel like his old self is Joni. SheÂ’s fun and energetic—and doesnÂ’t know he has a baby. But the more time they spend together, the harder it becomes to keep his two worlds separate. Finding one of MegÂ’s journals only stirs up old emotions, and RydenÂ’s convinced Meg left other notebooks for him to find, some message to help his new life make sense. But how is he going to have a future if he canÂ’t let go of the past?   I’m so excited to have Jessica Verdi on my blog today. I really liked What You Left Behind. I was lucky enough to read an ARC of it and I wrote a review earlier this month. Thanks for having me on your blog, Emily! 1. Tell us a little about yourself and your […]
