Bizarre Interviews with Kyle Perkins-Week 4.

Kyle Perkins interviewed me… and this happened! LOL

Author Kyle Perkins

By Kyle Perkins.

Sorry for the delay, guys! Today’s interview is with Melissa Robitille. I got a week behind, but all is well again. Let’s jump right in.

Question 1: So, who are you? What do you write?

I’m Melissa Robitille, author, editor, book interior designer, book cover designer… workaholic. I write urban fantasy, science fiction, horror, and paranormal romance.

Question 2: Book interior designer? What in the fuck is that?

I make the inside of your print book (and ebook) look pretty. That’s usually page numbering, making sure the chapter headings look nice, making sure you don’t have weird extra spaces at the top or bottom of the page, etc. If you’ve ever seen a book with chapters that start with a large drop cap, a book interior designer did that.

Question 3: Well, well. Fancy. Now we know you on surface value, let’s get into the hard…

#YourNextFavoriteAuthor tour, L.E. Moebius

I’m reviewing L.E. Moebius’s 30 Days Stream of Consciousness: A Haunting (Streams of Consciousness Book 2)… I enjoyed rather more than I expected to.

Ms. Moebius has written quite a fascinating ghost story from the perspective of someone who will choose to ascribe events to anything *but* paranormal activity.

While the book is in first person, that doesn’t prevent the reader from having the feeling of watching a horror movie and wanting very much to yell at the protagonist and throw popcorn, while at the same time never being 100% certain who or what is haunting the house. Being able to ‘see’ the story unfold from behind the protagonist’s eyes gives the story a very immediate and compelling feel, and allows Ms. Moebius to bring a great deal of solid characterization to him, while leaving the other characters a bit mysterious in their motives & leaving us to wonder just what else he’s missing that’s right in front of his face.

As an editor, I will admit that I read with a very critical eye and I did find a few small errors – two or three words missing, two or three homonyms – but nothing significant, and on the whole the book is quite well written. The plot is well done and paced in an ever-tightening gyre which admirably adds to the atmosphere of suspense, particularly aided by the ‘ticking clock’ of the 30 days.

In conclusion, I would recommend this book for those in search of a good case of the heebie-jeebs. It’ll stand the hair up on the back of your neck.

A bit about L.E. Moebius:

I’m the next favorite author because of my compelling characters. I tap into raw human emotion and make the imagined real.

My favorite part about writing is the magical shiver I get up my spine when I read something really good and I realize I wrote it. Sometimes I wonder if I’m the one who wrote my books or if there is someone else taking over my thoughts and fingers and weaving a spell over the computer. Part of my writing process is to set aside a project once I complete it for at least two to three weeks so when I pick it up again I am looking at it with fresh eyes. When I come across those little gems of word magic in the pages I get goosebumps all up and down my arms and I feel like I can feel a Muse breathing secrets into my ear. I believe in spirits at exactly that moment.

Author Interview with Gary Lee Webb

An interview with fellow Betrayals of Another Kind author, Gary Lee Webb. I’ve had many interesting conversations with Gary Lee during this process.

Into the Mind of the Writer

Please welcome Author Gary Lee Webb!

  1. What genre are your books? Currently zero books completed, but putatively the first will be high fantasy and the second an alternate history centered around AD 1100. My published short stories are 80% fantasy; the rest are science fiction and alternate history. I have also published non-fiction articles on a variety of subjects (three-quarters of my publications are non-fiction).

  3. What project are you working on at the moment? 65,000 words into my first novel.
