‘5 Questions’ with William Esmont
Today I’m thrilled to welcome indie author William Esmont to the blog as part of the ‘5 Questions’ with authors series!
If you are an author who would like to participate in the series, fill out the questionnaire here! And if you are a reader who wants to suggest an author for the series, just send me an email!
Describe your book ‘Pressed (The Reluctant Hero Series, Book Two)‘ in ten words or less
Pressed (The Reluctant Hero, Book Two) is a mad scramble to prevent nuclear disaster.
Where or how did you come up with the idea for your story?
I got the idea for my first story (Self Arrest) while snowshoeing in the mountains west of Boulder, Colorado in the dead of winter. A plane flew overhead, lower than I thought was safe, and an idea was born.
Which of your characters is closest to your heart and why?
Chris Thompson, from my second Elements of the Undead story was my favorite to write because he allowed me to indirectly explore my feelings about what happened on 9/11 and the terrible choices people faced on that day. I wrote the first draft in one sitting, and my editor left it mostly intact, which is a reason to celebrate in itself.
Do you have a day job? If yes, tell us about it and how did that affect your writing / publishing process?
I write software during the day. The high-tech nature of my day job gives me a fair amount of insight into how things really work.
Tell us about an upcoming book or project you’re excited about
I’m in the middle of final revisions on the third story in the Elements of the Undead series. It should be out in mid-summer of 2012, and I can’t wait to see what people think of it!
Bonus Question! Fill in the blank: If you like ___, you’ll probably like my book too!
If you like The Walking Dead, you’ll like my Elements of the Undead series. Maybe.
