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.

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
