I am so pleased to welcome our FABULOUS Simon O’Kill Author extrordinare!

Simon O’Kill’s interview FFA
RWM – “Today I am talking to a fabulous man, the wonderful author of the very strange and very funny ‘No-one loves a bigfoot like a bigfoot babe,’ Mr Simon O’Kill.
SO- “Hello Ruth and thanks for having me over. Must say I am a little jet-lagged.”
RWM- “Sounds like you have been away somewhere nice, must have a chat about that sometime soon. So, what is your current genre? What made you chose this subject?”
SO- “Paranormal romance from the point of view of reincarnation. Reincarnation has always attracted me as it implies immortality.”
RWM – “What is your current book or work about?”
SO – “Luna Sanguis drags the reader by the scruff of the neck and takes them on a hell ride as a vampire – they will taste blood, feel fear, terror, lust, craving and above all hope for love everlasting.”
RWM – “Wow Simon, that sounds terrifying, how exciting – Who is your favourite author? Can you recommend one of their books?”
SO – “Stephen King, the old chestnut. Salem’s Lot hooked me fang deep into the world of the vampire with its family values fighting monstrous evil all through the eyes of an author. So many of SK’s books involve life as an author.”
RWM – “Yes I have to admit to having a soft spot for Stephen King myself. Can you tell me how long have you been writing?”
SO – “I have been dabbling for many years, but not until I was disabled did I have the time to devote to it seriously. Not sure if that’s a good thing or not?”
RWM – “Being disabled myself; I certainly know where you’re coming from there. Just wondering if you have any pet hates?”
SO – “My pet hates being ignored. Oh, you mean me? I guess being ignored by all those readers out there who will never discover my work.”
RWM – “LOL there are people who haven’t read your book? Wow they are crazy, it can’t be possible! I am sure sales will keep going strong for Bigfoot and your new book. Tell me a quality you really like about yourself?”
SO – “I am still writing! I have learned not to give up.”
RWM- Determination and skill is the name of the game, I am so pleased that you are sticking around, life would be pretty sad without you or your work. What do you hope to achieve in your life, from your writing?”
SO – “If one day Stephen King gave me a great review I would be happy.”
RWM – “Now that would be fabulous, although I have not seen a list of Stephen King’s favourite novels, it would be good to see what he does like. LOL Definitely not Stephanie Meyer, he makes that very clear. Okay Simon, sell your book by perhaps letting us know your favourite or latest work? What is its link so people can buy it? Tell me about it and why you believe people should buy it?”
SO – “As my Bigfoot book was the first to be published by an Indie publisher it kinda stole my heart – but now that I have self published Luna Sanguis, I realise that was puppy love. Luna Sanguis is all about me in a more colourful way. I mean, if I went around drinking people’s blood, well you can guess the rest. But it is all about the effects PTSD has on the mind. It takes the reader inside a vampire’s head who cannot remember who they are, where they are, what has happened. So the reader will at first be confused, forgetful and may even be a little pissed off – but read on and slowly the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle meld together to create a rich tale of vampiric beauty. Above all it is a mystery that will trick the reader until the last page of book two – Luna Aeturnus. Due out in August.”

Simon's Brand new Novel Lunasanguis

RWM – “Do you believe that big authors can charge too much for their eBooks?”
SO – “Well, it’s the greedy publishers that charge over-priced books. But fans will always pay for their fix.”
RWM- “Mmm, yes I can agree with that, tell me a little about yourself, what made you become an author and do you have a job besides writing?”
SO – “I was injured during work. I didn’t get any compensation – this is the UK where big corporations rule the courts as the Royals did centuries ago. Since I was left disabled and pensioned off, I decided to give writing my best shot.”
RWM – “That is such a shame; yes UK doesn’t seem to be very good with personal injury claims does it? It’s sad that you were injured, but also it has given other people opportunity to read your fabulous books. I have to say I has been wonderful talking to you today Simon and thanks so much for being a guest on Friday’s Fab Authors, you really are a treat to meet.”
SO – “You are most welcome Ruth. Loved every minute.”
