I’ve Been Tagged!

Thanks to John Grover for the opportunity. Below you’ll find ten question I’ve been asked to answer. Enjoy!

1) What is the title of your next book/work?

I’m working on a project with Jason Brannon called “The Horseman”. Not sure if this will be the working title. I love writing with Jason. He has such a powerful voice that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

2) Where did the idea come from for the book/work?

After Jason and I sold our short “Electra Moscato Wine” to Biting Dog Publications, Jason asked about doing a much larger project involving dead serial killers being plucked out of hell to fight for the right to ride the pale horse.

3) What genre does your book/work fall under?

Horror.

4) What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?

With such a wide cast of characters it’d be too hard to tell.
5) What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

How about a quick glimpse of our first paragraph of “The Horseman” to whet your appetite?

The clown was running. His bare feet mashed through soft, ripened flesh of dismembered bodies. He stumbled once, twice, three times, before regaining his balance and pressing on. Out of breath and gasping and lungs burning, his fleshless sides heaved and pounded. The scent of sulfur choked him. He recognized he wasn’t the only one running. People ran ahead of him. He could see them now. He looked back over trembling shoulders and saw the flying things coming, closing the gap.

6) Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

Hard to say, but we do have a publisher interested so we’ll have to wait and see.

7) How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?

Still working on the first draft.

8) What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

“The Hunger Games” and Stephen King’s “The Long Walk”. Jason and I have all sorts of goodies from the past in our story—some of which who plagued the headlines in the 20th and 21st century.

9) Who or what inspired you to write this book?

When Jason approached me about this little gem, “The Hunger Games” and “The Long Walk” immediately came to mind. We’re going to write it as a series.

10) What else about the book might pique the reader’s interest?

We have some of the worst, most foul minds to ever walk the earth in “The Horseman”. Trust me, they get their just deserts.

I want to thank John Grover for this opportunity! My day job has me going crazy with overtime hours, so I’m sorry if the questions seem answered too quickly or not enough. Rest assured, dear reader, “The Horseman” will satisfy your every need.
