Tony-Paul is Interview by Beverley Bateman

This week, horror author Tony-Paul de Vissage is interviewed by Beverley Bateman, and gives his (as usual) candid opinions on paying for reviews, self-publishing, and friends who trick other friends into writing sequels.

He'll also give an excerpt from ESSENCE OF ABSINTHE, the novel he was conned into writing.  It also has a sequel now, by the way.

EXCERPT from the interview:

How important are reviews for your book?
I think reviews are fairly important because 1) they show someone’s read your book; 2) they encourage others to read your book (if the review is positive and we always hope it will be, don’t we?)
How do you get reviews?
There are several forums on Google Plus where one can ask for a review. Likewise with Facebook.  I also watch for reviews others have posted  and will check out the reviewer’s page, and see if they’re currently accepting submissions and act accordingly.  Also, my publisher’s promotions manager submits to various review sites for their authors.

Author Enlists CDC in Writing New Novel

My newest book is entitled In My Blood. As with every book I write, it all began with a precipitating event.
In this case, I had brought my cat, Frodo, outside for a lap around the front yard. I was holding him in my arms, when a large truck roared by and scared him. In a wild attempt to escape, he clawed me and made holes in my shirt, but I held him fast and made a beeline for the door.
It was the back claws that did the most damage. Now I had a hole in my shirt and a peculiar pattern carved into my chest. I looked like a reverse letter N.
That night, I was thinking about what happened. When I got into the shower, the thought hit me, “Maybe there is a plague on an alien world and emissaries were sent into all the inhabited planets to find the chosen one…”
That was all I needed to get started.
The next day, I started writing, but I knew I needed help in creating the plague.
When you want to find out about a disease, what do you do? You call the CDC right?
So,,,I called them...
