KPReading – Imagining New Worlds


I’ve not been around lately. Summer is mostly to blame for it. The swim team and its meets have kept me on my toes for the last few months. I’ve been on the run, juggling swim practice, pep-rallies, and meets. While it has been a fulfilling exercise, I have barely found time to write on the blog.

In the last two months a lot has happened. And it’s really a lot. One of them is KPReading.

KPReading.com is a brand new site highlighting select Kindle Press authors. And it’s the perfect place to look for a summer read or two.

How is KPReading different from any other site? KPReading only showcases stories set in the world depicted in the authors’ Kindle Press selected novel. For example, my FREE short story, The Dead of Summer, set in the world of The Eternity Prophecy, is one of the showcased offerings. And so it goes with all of your other favorite Kindle Press authors.

You’ll find a variety of genres showcased here, from Horror to Romance to Fantasy. If you’ve enjoyed a Kindle Press book, check out KPReading.

Before I end, can’t help posting a gratuitous photo of the cover for my short story, The Dead of Summer. You can click the graphic below to get your FREE copy.

Fun Interview Today at Idea Creations Press

Author interviews are always fun, but some interviews are more fun than others. That’s definitely true for the interview I just had with Kathryn Elizabeth Jones of Idea Creations Press.

Why so fun, you might ask? Well, because I enjoyed the questions she had for me. Many of them required some soul searching and some of them made me stop and cherish my achievements as an author, modest as they may be.

Interviews are generally seen as a means for anyone to know the interviewee better. That may be, but I think an interview (a good one, that is) helps the interviewee get in touch with their inner self, connect to their deepest thoughts. This opportunity was just that.

Also, I loved the fact that Kathryn is so remarkably organized with the interview process. There was never a rush to get things wrapped up quickly, which gave me plenty of time to mull over things and reach deep to find real answers. Thanks, Kathryn.

Without further ado, here’s an excerpt from the interview:

How do you come up with your characters? Why would readers want to get to know them?

They come to me in my dreams. No, really, some of them do. Sometimes, I wake up with the vivid memory of a dream, complete with characters and the outline of a story. Out comes the paper and pen! Sometimes characters come to me from other stories I love, when I go what if this were different? For example, after reading Cinderella, I might think, what if the stepmother was trying to force Cinderella into this marriage with the prince and Cinders ran away from home to prevent the union instead? Off I go outlining! Other times, characters pop into my mind from random conversations with friends. And sometimes, I simply want to write an interesting story about a character with certain traits or in a certain world.
