I am participating in this author-to-author blog tour which is like a game of tag. An author tags five other authors and post their latest work in progress on their blog. I was tagged by Sheila Callaham, author of Truth Runs Deep, a story of mystery, suspense and murder. I have it in my reading list and can’t wait to start.
Now that I’ve been tagged, I am supposed to write about the latest project I am working on and then tag five more authors. So here goes…
What is the working title of your book? Among Us
Where did the idea come from for the book? It came to me in a dream.
What genre does your book fall under? Fiction, supernatural, science fiction.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Penelope Cruz, Eric Bana, Geoffrey Rush, Ayelet Zurer, Michael Lonsdale, Mathieu Amalric, Ciarán Hinds.
What is your current work in progress? I am currently writing a series of fictional novels called Among Us which delves into the world of the super natural and how it intersects with the every day lives of seemingly ordinary people as catastrophic events on Earth lead to the end of times.
Here are GoodReads authors that I’m pleased to tag and whose work I have reviewed or am currently reading.
Osman Gulum, author of Climbing Mountains, a story about the real life experiences of Gulum, a successful entrepreneur, inventor and loving father. From the days as a child, growing up in a very small Turkish village, Osman had an inherent determination to not only survive his impoverished existence, but to surpass the challenges that confronted him from every turn. It is a touching and inspiring story that I highly recommend as a narrative and also as a motivational book.
Cid Andrenelli, author of The Burqa Master, a satirical, tongue-in-cheek look at the lives of a multi-generational Persian family living in a cramped apartment in London. The comedy is told in the style of a play with literary elements of a novel. The characters are colourful and outrageous and the story is very entertaining and heartfelt.
G.L.Tysk, author of The Sea-god at Sunrise, a story about Japanese fisherman, Shima and his younger brother, out on a routine fishing expedition, are wrecked on an uninhabited island by a freak typhoon. Their rescue by a passing American whaling ship proves a short-lived miracle when, barred from reentering Japan, the ship heads for the whaling grounds of the South Pacific. I am half way through and enjoying the action and cultural perspectives that Tysk embeds in the story line. The action is well written and the characters are very human and real. I can’t wait to finish the book and write my review.
Owen Choi, author of Tendrils of Life, a story that takes you through the turmoil of war in Korea at the end of World War II and the Pacific War with the surrender of the Empire of Japan. Choi writes a detailed narrative of the plight of the Korean people during the time-frame when their beloved country is torn in two by outside forces. He weaves the historical events through the eyes of his main characters as they struggle to survive the injustices and strife that war brings.
Len Harper, author of Song for Nemesis, a political thriller that will appeal to readers across multiple genres. Reading the book was exciting and felt like I was watching a James Bond movie on the pages.
You can find all of these authors and their books on Amazon and connect with them on GoodReads — where authors and readers come together. Enjoy!
