IndieView with LyLena D Estabine, author of On the Bridge

I finally realized that, what others thought about it wasn’t as important as what I had to say. I found myself, just like my main character Colt, faced with the decision about whether I was going to accept the narcissism the world feeds us or if I believed in something more optimistic.

IndieView with Mike Sims, author of Vic/Tim

I have been told by some that some of the events that happen in the book are too ridiculous and do not happen in real life. The funny thing is the ones they talk about were the ones that did come from real life.

IndieView with Kate Hickey, author of It’s Me

I wanted to be one of those writers, typing away in the morning at a coffee shop. But that’s not me. I can only write at night from my home office.

IndieView with Mike MacDee, author of Kingdom of Famine

And sometimes you write a good villain and aren’t sure how to send her off. Good bad guys need to have equally good sendoffs or it’s anticlimactic. I lost track of how many times I rewrote the ending.
