Author Interview: Delin Colón (Resputin and the Jews)

Who am I? Well, about an hour ago, I was the middle-aged ditz in the market who tried to pay for groceries by swiping her AARP card instead of her debit card. Last week, I was the editor so engrossed in her work that when the phone rang, I answered it with “Put me on your Do Not Call List,” and hung up. It was my mother.

Like most people, I come from a dysfunctional family which is not necessarily a bad thing because otherwise I’d have to take responsibility for my screw-ups. I always like to look on the bright side.

But I guess the appropriate response to ‘who am I?’ would be a description of what I do. I’m a freelance researcher, writer and editor. For my own amusement, I also do collage art. I’ve attended six different universities, having lived on both U.S...

Author Interview: Carlos Aranda (My Conversations with God)

To introduce myself, I am Carlos Aranda; I am a new Christian author. I just released my first book out on October 1st. I was saved at the age of seven in the Royal Rangers program at my local Assemblies of God church. I walked with the Lord through my teen years serving on mission’s trips abroad to build churches, along with local outreach ministries in the surrounding communities.

Author Interview: Deserea Morse–Blackberry’s Tales

Deserea Morse (Blackberry Del’Le Horrer) Interview:

I have been writing since I was 16 years old. I think because I have such a deep fascination with the Occult, this tends to inspire my creativity throughout Blackberry’s Tales. Many, if not all, of my characters are formed through the blackness of my mind. I enjoy darkness…and this really shines through my characters such as Viper, Sception, and Frost.

What compelled you to write your first book?

Wow! I think it all came down to this one word: Inspiration...

Author Interview: Danny Wynn–Man From the Sky

What inspired you to write this story in the form of a novella? 

I’m a firm believer that each story has a natural length, and a story will be less than its best if the writer departs from, or doesn’t find, the natural length, either because he or she is trying to achieve a length required by industry customs and practices or by other imposed requirements.  I personally find many novels too long for their meaningful content, and I can’t help but feel that in some cases that is the result of writers conforming to what they are told is the necessary length for a novel.  And there are other writers who use over-writing as part of their process, rely on editing to getting them to the proper length, and then for internal or external reasons fail in the editing process.

All of this is ...
