Hello. Thank you for visiting my blog today. I am Rebecca Scarberry – Scarberryfields on Twitter. I have interviewed author, Nicholas Forristal. I think you will enjoy getting to know this talented author as much as I have.
Scarberryfields: Can you please tell us how many books you have written and their titles? Please also explain a little about each book.
Nicholas: I have written one book and it was self-published on May 18, 2012. It's called “Chronicles of M”. It's a modern day story about a newly retired Hollywood agent who is offered a job working for an ex-government agency whose purpose is the handling of an unconventional man named "M" as he battles the supernatural.
Scarberryfields: When you finished your debut novel, did you miss the characters?
Nicholas: Nope! I started writing the second book the next day and I've got at least 2 more to do after that.
Scarberryfields: While writing, if you need help with punctuation, grammar, etc., where do you turn?
Nicholas: The internet, family, sometimes I beat my head against the wall until I figure it out. At the end of writing, I'll hire a proper editor and let them tell me what I did wrong. Stephanie Dagg did the editing for this book (she's at http://www.ebook-ed.it/ ) and will probably do them from here on out.
Scarberryfields: With the number of hours spent writing, do family members support you or complain about the time spent away from them?
Nicholas: I do the majority of my writing in the early morning (5 am) or when I have time at work. So no, they only have to deal with me talking about it.
Scarberryfields: Does writing benefit you in any way and if so, how?
Nicholas: It makes the voices in my head stop talking.
Scarberryfields: When you’re writing, do you shut-off all social networks?
Nicholas: I can usually write in any setting. It's only when the writing becomes more difficult or thoughtful that I need to shut out the world. The chapter about this mortician named Uhler was mostly written in silence. It's one of my favorites.
Scarberryfields: Did you use any family members as Beta readers for your debut novel?
Nicholas: I used anyone willing to look at it. I figured the more opinions I got, the better off I'd be.
Scarberryfields: What do you do when you aren’t writing? Do you have any hobbies or a job?
Nicholas: Any time outside of writing or getting the word out is spent with my wife and son, video games, reading and watching television or movies.
Scarberryfields: Are you writing anything at this time? If so, please tell us about it.
Nicholas: I'm currently writing the sequel to Chronicles, it picks up moments after the first book ends. I've also been jotting ideas for some future books not related to the series.
Scarberryfields: Where can readers go to find your books?
Scarberryfields: Thank you, Nicholas for taking the time to answer my questions. I wish you the best with all your writing.
