Here’s a sample of author Joseph Carrabis’ wonderful wit that comes through in my interview with him: Where do your characters come from?
Toledo. I have an apartment building there and rent out rooms to them. They come, stay a while, then move on. I’s a good deal because the rent’s cheap and I change their names before writing them into stories.

Lily Iona Mackenzie puts me to task with questions ranging from where characters come from to why I write to dealing with speling erorrs.

“Author Feature The Augmented Man by Joseph Carrabis” now on WorkingTitleBlogspot

The Augmented Man by Joseph Carrabis is based on Joseph’s research into helping traumatized children and combat PTSD sufferers to heal. It’s a sci-fi military thriller set in the near future.

I answered three questions for WorkingTitleBlogSpot:

  • Is it important to include all shades of belief and sexual orientation in a book?
  • What is worse? Ignorance or stupidity?
  • Do you have any marketing tips for fellow writers?

(and I had a good time doing it!)

“Q & A with Joseph Carrabis” now on Matthew Stern’s Blog

One benefit of social media is you meet some wonderful people. One of them is author Joseph Carrabis. He has been everything from a long-haul trucker to a chief research scientist. He has taught internationally at the university level; holds patents in a base, disruptive technology; created a company that grew from his basement to offices in four countries; and helped companies varying in size from mom-and-pops to Fortune 500 companies develop their marketing. Most of this bored him. But give him a pen and paper or a keyboard and he’s off writing, which is what he does full-time now.

The Shadow’s Project Limited’s Terry Melia Interviews Joseph Carrabis

Gifted author Terry Melia interviewed me recently as part of The Shadow’s Project Limited‘s author interview series.

All cards on the table, Terry’s Tales from the Greenhills is an amazing novel and how Terry and I got in touch. We knew each other via Twitter, I enjoyed our interactions, and decided to give his book a go.

Strongly recommended.

Terry contacted me a while back about being interviewed. As my The Augmented Man was re-released by Sixth Element Publishing, I said “oh…well…if i have to…PLEASE DEAR GOD YES OH PLEASE OH PLEASE OH PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE!”
