Some people say that authors have to sacrifice a lot for their craft. Do you feel this is the case?
Yes. I know I work every minute I can. It's like an addiction. It's caused problems for my family, cost me a social life, makes it nearly impossible for me to read for pleasure as I can't read something and write at the same time, and even put me in the hospital for pushing myself too hard. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears is put into my work and I hope it shows in my books like Bigfoot War.
Two things actually. Never give up, success could be just around the corner and don't let other folks get you down whether they're talking crap about your work or you're comparing yourself to them and saying "I must suck if whoever is doing so well and I'm not at the moment".
You could say that. I have a closet full of "Flash" shirts and so many comics, they have an entire room to themselves but other storage places. I love them and talk about them all time. Not to mention, spend way too much money on them sometimes.
Both of those books feature my original hero Agent Robert Death. He's a very dark character struggling with a lot of inner issues but somehow ends up being a good guy at the end of the day despite being a jerk. In his origin book, The Human Experiment, he literally takes on a man made god and in Anti-Heroes he heads to the south to fight zombies. He's a very fun character to write.
The first book in the trilogy, Bigfoot War, is my fanboy love song to all those Bigfoot horror films I watched as a kid and still watch only crazier. It's the tale of one little town of eight hundred people who make a mistake and end facing an entire tribe of Bigfoot creatures who come out of the woods looking for vengeance. I can't say much about the rest of the trilogy yet but book II is coming soon and things get more and more insane as the story goes.
