‘5 Questions’ with B. B. Griffith

5 Questions

Today I’m thrilled to welcome indie author B. B. Griffith 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!

Blue Fall (The Tournament, Book 1) by B. B. Griffith

Describe your book ‘Blue Fall (The Tournament, Book 1)‘ in ten words or less

In Blue Fall, a clandestine tournament has unforeseen and deadly consequences.

Where or how did you come up with the idea for your story?

Thousands of years ago warring nations sent their champions to battle each other and the outcomes of single battles often settled wars. The notion of a national champion has fascinated readers for years. I’ve always wondered what our champions might look like today…probably very different than we might think.

What was your favorite part to write and why?

I love writing sparse dialogue that is just loaded with sub-context. Every time I manage to get one or two words of dialogue to slam home a point I stand up and give a little fist pump in the air.

Do you have a day job? If yes, tell us about it and how did that affect your writing / publishing process?

I do have a day job, I work for an independent oil and gas company, and I love it. There is no way I would have had as much fun writing this book as I did if I didn’t have a way to pay the bills. I know I’m in the minority of indie-writers when I say this, but I love writing way too much to make it a job just yet.

Tell us about an upcoming book or project you’re excited about

The sequel to Blue Fall is coming out in late September. It’s called Grey Winter, and it’s the second in the Tournament series of books. The first one took me seven years, this one only took me three years. That’s what I call “achieving gains in productivity”!

Bonus Question! Fill in the blank: If you like ___, you’ll probably like my book too!

I’d say if you like the way technothriller authors like Michael Crichton make the unbelievable absolutely believable, you’ll like Blue Fall too. Also, if you’re just out for great escapism, things that take you totally away for a little while, like the Hunger Games or Ready Player One, you’ll get a kick out of my books.
