Behind The Author
I have done book reviews for a few authors but I think it is time I dove into getting to know the author behind the books. One author I approached was none other than James Fuller, who I reviewed his Erotica Mythology book a few weeks back. He has quite a few books published that I have yet to dive into but before I do, I wanted to ask James a few questions about his writing career. So I say let’s dive in!
1. What sparked your interest in writing?
I don’t really know, one day an idea just came to me, so I started writing. Haven’t stopped since.
2. Has anyone in your life inspired you to write?
Not overly no. Terry Goodkind and David Gemmell were both amazing fantasy authors that I looked up to though and tried harder to hit their level.
3. When did you decide to publish?
Before I even hit the first word of my first book to the page.
4. Are you an Indie Author or Traditional Author? Why did you choose the path you did?
I am Indie. I started out looking for Traditional, and even got 2 contracts with two big fantasy publishers, but after looking at what they wanted and how they wanted me to do things I told them (and I quote) “Get a spoon and eat my ass.” (true story) After that, I never wasted another moment thinking about Traditional publishing.
5. What is your first published book?
Fall of a King: The False Prince
6. Are you happy with how your books are coming out? Would you change anything?
Yes I am happy with them. I would change nothing.
7. Will you continue to publish books for many years to come?
I have 6 books on the go right now and a folder with 33 other book ideas… I think I am set for a bit.
8. What genres inspire you to write?
Fantasy and horror
9. What is your favorite genre to write? What is your least favorite genre to write?
Dystopian is my fav. I love that apocalypse feeling worlds. I have none that I have written that I don’t like, but I suspect I wouldn’t write sci fi.
10. What challenges have you faced publishing?
Like most, marketing is the hardest part by far.
11. What challenges have you faced in writing?
Finding the time. Between working 40 to 60 hours a week, being a husband and a dad, it doesn’t leave much time to write.
12. Where do your ideas for your books come from? Where do you keep those ideas?
No idea, they just pop into my head.
13. Are you also a bookworm and does reading other works help inspire your own writing?
I read a lot. 20 or 30 books a year sometimes more. It’s my down time. Some authors certainly inspire me to try different methods and styles yes.
14. Do you have a website where we can follow you?
15. What is the link for your books so others may look and possibly purchase them from?
I hope you will go check out this amazing Author and buy a book or two. And I hope you enjoyed this interview. I had fun learning more about James and I hope you did too. Read on, adventures!
