Q: What will readers like about your book?
TIMEKILL is an engaging, fast-paced, action/adventure/thriller/mystery all wrapped into one. With some moral and ethical dilemmas thrown in, I try to design all of my stories to be appealing to a wide variety of readers. While it is categorized as science-fiction, many readers who are not science-fiction fans have told me they really enjoyed reading TIMEKILL—and I take that as a huge compliment.
Q: Why did you self publish?
The world of digital downloading (whether it’s music, TV shows, movies, and now books), is a game changer, and being a technologist, I love being on the cutting edge. Because TIMEKILL is shorter in length than a standard novel, I knew it didn’t have much of a place in the traditional publishing process. So, it became my chance to venture into the self-publishing world via Kindle. And, now that I have done it and experienced the ease and its potential raw power (i.e., Amanda Hocking), I will very likely be using the Kindle self-publishing technology for my full length novels as well.
Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
Ever since being a little kid I have always loved Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. They were two of my favorites while growing up and I and am still a huge admirer of theirs today. I have many of their works proudly lined up on my bookshelf. Their involvement of neat technology woven into compelling stories is something I always had fun reading, and is very much what I try to accomplish with my stories, TIMEKILL being one of them.
