Author Spotlight: Christian Scully

The featured author this week is another good friend of mine who also happens to enjoy writing. We have worked collaboratively on recent projects for each other, serving as brainstormers, sounding boards, beta readers, proofreaders, editors, and just about any other role you could assign to somebody without them actually co-writing your project.  His ongoing series, The Chronicles of Erika Lorenz, is a fresh take on vampires and puts a really interesting twist to that timeless lore.  I also get caught up in the situations he creates for his characters.  He’s always really supportive and encouraging to me, and I’m glad to get to work with him whenever an idea comes to mind.  Before we get to the interview, I’ll let Chris share a little bit about himself.

“I work as an IT professional in the US Air Force. I grew up in a small village in Indiana and spend most of my free time with my family and dog. I’ve been writing for the last 11 years. I started writing as a means to get involved with the film industry and found my stories more suitable as novels. I like stories that challenge the characters’ internal resolve.”

Author Spotlight: Jonathan Degler

I got connected with this next author through a mutual friend.  I had just started my personal blog and was developing my writing style when a friend commented that he knew an author.  I was enthralled by this idea, as authors had always seemed like mythical creatures to me; fantastical beasts that didn’t intermingle with mere mortals.  In my head they all lived in shoreline cottages, high-rise apartments in big cities, or secluded cabins in the woods, and lived magical lives.  To have the opportunity to be connected with somebody that was actually a published author blew my mind.  And I’m seriously not writing that for entertainment or to be dramatic (like usual).  I held authors on a pedestal in my head and never imagined that they came from all over and led completely normal lives.  Maybe I was a little naive.  Maybe I just think really highly of authors.
Since meeting Jon, we’ve become good friends, and he has been such an inspiration to me on multiple levels.  When I thought of the idea of this series, he was a no-brainer to be one of my first guests.  Luckily, he agreed to do it!

Author Spotlight: Adam K. Moore

Welcome to the newest series on my site! Knowing how difficult it is to get your name out there as an aspiring author, I thought it would be a great idea to take on the role of helping other writers gain some exposure and introduce them to as many new readers as possible. I have identified several guests and so far they have all graciously agreed to let me bug them with a bunch of questions! Naturally, when I had the idea to feature other authors, my starting point had to be with my writing partner, Adam K. Moore.

 

Adam is responsible for penning the completely original and enthralling Compendium Twenty-Three series, as well as helping me co-found Circle City Publishing. In addition to that, he is also one of my most trusted proofreaders, and is crucial in helping me make sure my projects turn out okay.  And not only is he a fantastic writer, but he creates some visually stunning pieces of art too.  That great Circle City Publishing logo? Yeah, that’s all him! He also provided all of the artwork for CCP’s first children’s book, My Ship Don’t Sink! Continue reading
