Indie Author Spotlight – Interview With John Day

I picked the German side in Espionage London because the plot was everything a thriller could be. The reader knew the outcome of the conflict yet at the time of the story, there was this absolute certainty that provided the secret device worked, Hitler would win. It was probably the first thought the reader had that the team would all be caught or the device failed. How else could History be reconciled. As the story advances, the reader has to face the fact they are wrong and this just cannot be. The thoughtful reader will understand, from the clear explanation in the story, how the simplest thing can turn things around. I promise readers a clear logical story and no smoke and mirrors. That is what makes this story so compelling.

Indie Author Spotlight – Jack Geurts “The Fire And The Forge”

I find him to be the most sympathetic and empathetic character in the book, a man who has done terrible things and who is trying desperately to forget, or redeem himself if he can. I know this probably isn’t how a lot of other writers do it, but when I envision a character, I’ll usually think of the actor I imagine playing them in the movie. It might be a hold-over from when I was studying screenplays before I turned to writing novels, but I always imagined Andre Braugher in the role. He has this careful deliberation and gravitas about him, a quiet power. Very eloquent, enunciating every syllable.

Discussion Topic -Listening to Reviewers

I've witnessed a lot of sour grapes as well. Some reviewers will review books from genres they know they don't like and give it a crappy rating. This grinds my gears. In my mind, these type of reviews are a waste of everyone's time. The perspective consumer and the author. Neither can use that review for anything constructive.

Indie Author Spotlight – Emily Martha Sorensen

I think the ideal society would be one that doesn’t even need money, because people just share with each other (voluntarily, not because somebody’s forcing them to). A society where everyone is good and kind would not need many rules at all, so there could be a lot of flexibility and creativity and freedom. Of course, a society with all good people would be very easy to keep going: practically any government or economic system would work perfectly and fairly.
