AN INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR JOSEPH CARRABIS

Elizabeth Chatsworth, kind, gentle, and giving person she is, interviewed me and published our exchange at AN INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR JOSEPH CARRABIS.

We talked about

  • My The Augmented Man novel and how the story originated
  • The bizarre path to publication (took 31 years)
  • My sister, Sandra, and her influence on my work
  • My author heros
  • Favorite scenes, favorite characters, and my writing process.

Enjoy!

Terry Melia and Joseph Carrabis chat with screenwriter, indie filmmaker, and producer Brooks Elms

Brother author Terry Melia asked me to sit in on an interview for The Shadow Project’s author series.

What…are you crazy? Miss a chance to talk with Terry? (if you haven’t read his Tales from the Greenhills, do so, now. Understand? Now! NOW, GODDAMMIT!)

 
Terry and I had a great chat with Brooks Elms. Quite informative and entertaining. Give it a watch and let us know what you think.

“AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT: INTERVIEW WITH JOSEPH CARRABIS” now on JustineManzano.com

I met Joseph Carrabis through his former publisher. He’s a fun guy with a wonderful imagination, and a very interesting past in marketing. Today, we’re going to talk all about that, and he’s going to introduce you to his work.

 
The great and glorious (and everwise. mustn’t forget everwise) Justine Manzano, author of The Order of the Key and other novels, interviewed me on her blog.

We talked about The Augmented Man, my writing process, music I write by, my publishing plan (currently in phase III of IV), examples of good publishers and an example of a bad publisher, blogging about wildlife, and more.

Give it a read.

And comment. It’s always nice when you comment.

The mind behind ‘The Augmented Man’

I mentioned Rika Hemachandra (that’s her on the left. I could never look that good) interviewing me in Rika Hemachandra Interviews Joseph Carrabis about Writing.

Now she’s published the interview on her own blog in text form.

As I mentioned previously, Rika currently works in the construction industry, loves art and design, has a passion for reading, spreadsheets (really? She says so) and a curiosity about people, history, current events and Cognitive dissonance (love the way she links those two, don’t you?)

Rika and I covered lots of ground about writing, researching stories, transitioning through different publishing models, and where ideas come from. You can get the distillation at The mind behind ‘The Augmented Man’ if you don’t want to watch the full video interview.

In either case, do let us know what you think, and thanks.

Writing Short Stories – Live at SciFi Scarborough (Six Duckmans Live)

What can be better than six #weareallharvey writers getting together? How about them talking about how one writes fiction?

Specifically, science fiction, horror, fantasy, steampunk, historic romance, novels, short stories, flash, …

And even better, they’re all published! Some self, some indie, some small press. Some in the Harvey Duckman Presents series, some in other venues.

That’s what Kate @KateBaucherel Baucherel, Mark @darrackmark Hayes, Alexandrina @Caelestia_Flora Brant, myself and others did for #Scarborough Live this past weeked.

So give a listen (and let them know what you think).

(and yes, i’m one of them).
