SPOTLIGHT ON: Annie Jones

How did you get involved with Imaginarium Convention?
Serendipity. Friends mentioned they were going. I followed the page on Facebook, asked some questions and Stephen Zimmer invited me to take part. It pretty much had to go that way as am of the “I write to avoid real people” ilk. Not to worry, I’ve done a LOT of panels and presentations at conferences, seminars and workshops over the years, so I won’t be huddled under a table, sending my answers out scrawled on paper airplanes.
What’s your latest release and what genre is it?
Put Annie Jones in the search bar of Amazon, most of the stuff that shows up is me. My bestselling self pub/re-issue is The Christmas Sisters for All Seasons series. They list as Christian fiction, as most of my books do, even though they really aren’t religious. They make me wish there…

SPOTLIGHT ON: Cam Crowder

 

 

How did you get involved in the upcoming Imaginarium convention?

My friend Bobby Nash told me about the convention.

 

What is your latest release and what genre is it?

My latest book is called Legacies. It’s the second in the Broken Bloodline trilogy, and I’d consider it to be somewhere between Dark Fantasy and Horror.

 Legacies Front Cover

Quick description of it.

At the end of the first book, the group eradicated their ancient nemesis, the Hunters, and everything seemed to be looking up, but now something on a more apocalyptic scale is coming, and they’re not really sure how to stop it. All hell is, quite literally, about to break loose, and the only thing standing in the way is a Werewolf, three Vampires and a schizophrenic Sorcerer.

 

Something unique about it.

How about a 12 year old sociopath with a gift for magic…

Reblog: Touring Across America: Author G. Michael Vasey Spills The Beans

G. Michael Vasey is one of those unique writers you come across on a hot summer day. I have marvelled at this interview, and I’ve wondered what I can really say about it. I like this writer—a lot—and I can’t wait for you to like him, too! His book The Last Observer is a bit of everything, and that is the best way to describe this interview. It’s a bit of everything!

G. Michael Vasey is currently touring radio stations. Catch his breathtaking interview with “The X Zonetoday.

 Who do you have in mind when you write?

Me. I write about my interests and things that I am passionate about. I trust that the end product is something of interest to others and that I have something unique to offer – my perspective and one that is entertaining and different.

How do you find “inspiration” and where does it live?

Inspiration often comes to me in a semi-meditative state. So listening to music of the right type can start the juices flowing, or sometimes I listen to meditation music on Youtube as I write. It seems to relax me and open a channel to the creative part of me. Other books can also give inspiration too, so when I am reading something it will trigger a series of questions or thoughts and an inner dialogue. I don’t find finding inspiration difficult to be honest. If you look around and pay attention to what is around you, how can you not be inspired? For example, until recently, I lived in Prague. Most people tramp to work, head down, worrying about the day ahead or wishing themselves miles away. As I walked through Prague to work, I looked up – at the glorious architecture and beauty, history and sheer wow of the city I lived in…. that inspires me.

Have you always aspired to be a writer? 

No, but writing has always been a key part of what I do for a living, and I have always enjoyed writing. Being an author sort of sprung up on me when I realized what a body of work I had had published as articles, newsletters, book chapters and so on. Once I got comfortable with the idea, I thought – why not give it a proper go?
