5 Questions

Today I’m thrilled to welcome author C.E. Martin 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!

Mythical, The Series by C.E. Martin

Describe your book Mythical, The Series in ten words or less

A shapeshifter eats hearts to steal power and memories.

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

I wanted to do a military vs. vampires story, but vampires are everywhere these days.

So I looked at less used monsters and combined them into a shapeshifter, then gave him the requirement of having to eat a heart to steal the form of the victim – as well as their memories.

What was your favorite part to write and why?

I like the interaction between the teenage girl and the elderly military commander, probably because I have a 13 year old daughter myself.

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

I work as a civil servant, in a local government office daily, reviewing reports and preparing reports and interacting with the public.

It’s very boring and it requires a different style of writing than novels. I think the dry, just-the-facts writing my job requires makes it harder for me to write fiction.

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

I’ve just started the fourth book in my pulp-horror series; “Mythical: Shades of War“.

Unlike the first three in the series, it DOESN’T feature shapeshifters. Instead it’s about a ghost who possesses victims and uses them as a means to raise an army of shades to attack the living. I’m using characters and backstory from a novel I wrote years ago – before Indie publishing.

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

If you like the Remo Williams, the Destroyer and the Doc Savage series, you should like my series, Mythical. I’ve tried to blend the two together, but with more emphasis on the pulp side of things. I have action, the supernatural, sleazy characters and a straight-laced, by-the-book hero who just doesn’t fit in the modern world.

Thanks again for stopping by, C.E. Martin! You can learn more about the author via his website/blog: mythicaltheseries, Facebook: C.E.Martin, and Twitter: @troglodad.
