‘5 Questions’ Interview With TR Goodman! @thetrgoodman

5 Questions

Today I’m thrilled to welcome author TR Goodman to the blog as part of the ‘5 Questions’ with authors interview 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!


My Name Is Michael Bishop by TR Goodman

Describe your book My Name Is Michael Bishop in ten words or less

My Name Is Michael Bishop is a steampunk fantasy novel about family and sacrifice.

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

I was talking with my boss about illegal immigration and came up with an idea about people digitizing themselves in order to cross international borders.

The idea grew and evolved into a man who used magic to cure his daughter’s disease and accidentally turned himself into a steampunk golem.

Which of your characters (in this book) is closest to your heart and why?

Lord Emmet was probably the most fun to write out of all the characters.

He is a villain who has done terrible things in order to reach his goals, but his motivation is something anyone can understand. I like to think of him as what Michael could have become under different circumstances.

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

I have a day job in the IT industry, mostly doing accounting and tech support.

The most obvious influence it has had over my writing is that the idea for the book came from a conversation with my boss, who is also one of my beta readers.

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

My next book is the beginning of a series. It is about a demon who escapes Hell and tries to make a life for himself as a lawyer. I will be writing it for NaNoWriMo, and it will be my first year participating.


Thanks again for stopping by, TR Goodman! You can learn more about the author via his website: www.trgoodmanbooks.com, Facebook: TRGoodmanAuthor, and Twitter: @thetrgoodman.

 My Name Is Michael Bishop is available on Amazon (Kindle).

Bargain Alert! Dark Hollow by John Connolly for $3.99! @jconnollybooks

November 27, 2012 Leave a comment

Dark Hollow by John Connolly

‘Dark Hollow’ by John Connolly (Simon & Schuster ) is now available at the specially discounted price of $3.99 on the US Kindle site. Also for iTunes iBooks and B&N Nookbook.

Book Description

When John Connolly burst upon the literary suspense scene in 1999, he was an immediate international sensation. His Every Dead Thing became an instantaneous bestseller in England, and here in America, his writing was greeted with extraordinary accolades. He won the prestigious Shamus Award for Best First Private Eye Novel, and, as the San Francisco Examiner wrote, “John Connolly’s tale is as riveting and chilling as Thomas Harris’s The Silence of the Lambs and James Patterson’s Kiss the Girls.”

Now, Connolly returns with Dark Hollow, a terrifying and ingenious novel of a murderous spree that reaches back decades into the victims’ pasts. Back again is ex-New York Police Detective Charlie “Bird” Parker, who has returned to his hometown of Scarborough, Maine, after the vicious killings of his wife and daughter; it is time to leave the bloodstained streets of Manhattan and rebuild his family’s house — as well as his own life. But for Bird, returning to his roots means digging through a mountain of terror, as memories of his father’s and grandfather’s untimely deaths resurface and drive him to join the manhunt for the killer of yet another mother and child. Though the obvious suspect is Billy Purdue, the violent former husband of the murdered young woman, another player lurks in this disturbing drama, someone entangled in the dark hollow of Bird’s past.

Darkly atmospheric, tense and imbued with the page-turning ferocity that only the finest crime fiction offers, Dark Hollow is a stunning successor to Every Dead Thing, a testament to the burgeoning power of John Connolly to tell stories that thrill, frighten and haunt the soul.

‘5 Questions’ Interview With R.M. Prioleau! @rmprioleau

November 27, 2012 2 comments

5 Questions

Today I’m thrilled to welcome author R.M. Prioleau to the blog as part of the ‘5 Questions’ with authors interview 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!


Enflamed (The Pyromancer Trilogy) by R.M. Prioleau

Describe your book Enflamed (The Pyromancer Trilogy) in ten words or less

Enflamed: An epic fantasy adventure about the dangers of society’s fears.

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

Enflamed is a continuation of the first book in my trilogy, Firebrand.

The trilogy’s storyline came about from a roleplaying game I used to play with with friends.

In Enflamed, more characters are introduced, and Kaijin (the main character) goes on an even bigger adventure and learns new secrets about himself and the world.

Which of your characters (in this book) is closest to your heart and why?

All of them are dear to me! But if I had to choose, I would say it’s Aidan.

He’s a martial artist who is wise and has a peaceful personality. People think he’s dangerous because of the way he physically looks, but he’s actually the most loyal, loving, kind, and generous of all the characters.

Even though Aidan is a skilled martial artist and knows how to kill someone in a single blow if he wanted to, he absolutely hates violence and would rather find a peaceful resolution to a conflict than shed blood.

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 programming and designing games.

It’s fun, and sometimes challenging to balance both work and writing, but they are both things I love to do. I’ve become an expert multitasker having done this for so long 🙂

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

November is National Novel Writing Month, so I will be writing my next book then.

Other projects include editing/re-writing book 3 of my trilogy.

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

If you like Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman, JK Rowling and/or JR Tolkien’s books, you’ll probably like my book, Enflamed, too!


Thanks again for stopping by, R.M. Prioleau! You can learn more about the author via her website: www.rmprioleau.com, Facebook: rmprioleau, and Twitter: @rmprioleau.

 Enflamed (The Pyromancer Trilogy) is available on Amazon (Kindle).
