If this book is part of a series, tell us a bit about it?
The Wolf Riders of Keldarra is most certainly a series. I will be revealing all the titles in the series once Book 3 is published as I have a special promotion planned to coincide with its release. I cannot give any details beyond that at this time.
What made you decide to write a series?
Actually the book originally started as a short story of just 1600 words long, then it grew to what could have been a single book. But to me the original synopsis of the book felt incomplete so I worked on it for about three weeks, and it ended up as the multi-part series it is now… and no, I still can’t tell you how many parts there are.
Do you read a lot, and who are your favourite authors?
I read a lot. I also use Audible a lot. Some of my favourite authors include Jean M. Auel, Christie Golden, Richard A. Knaak. To this day I, Robot by Isaac Asimov is my favourite science fiction book, and Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien my favourite fantasy book.
Do you read books as physical books or do you read them as eBooks?
I read them in both formats.
Who designed your book cover? Is that apocalyptic science fiction book your mentioned designed in the same way?
For the The Wolf Riders of Keldarra I went with something somewhat unassuming, or at least unassuming on the surface. In my book the location of where the gems from which the Stone of Truth is cut, is revealed as the story progresses – you first find out it’s somewhere in the east of Keldarra, and the second book in the series is in part set there (spoiler!), and you will find out then why the image on the book cover is significant. You will also find out more about the reason for the design later as the series progresses…
Steven Novak from Novak Illustration did the cover for the dystopian apocalyptic science fiction novel Subject 37 recently for me. I can recommend him for a job well done, and I will highly recommend him for anyone, who wants a cover designed.
How did you publish your book, and why?
I used CreateSpace to publish my book, and plan to use them again for further book releases. However in the future I will expand to other platforms as well to expand the network of where my book is available.
I will update this page with a link to a new blog entry listing a number of these publishing platforms for interested readers.
I will be adding another bonus link below here with a link to another bonus page of questions in the future.
