Today I caught up with J T Alblood and asked him about his new book Save the Last Bullet for God and where he gets the inspiration for his stories.
Q. Tell us something unexpected about yourself!
A. In order to keep realism, I am trying to write my books by making stories of my memories on reincarnation periods.
Q. What kind of books do you write? What’s your preferred genre?
A. Speculative dark sci-fi and historical mystery suspense.
Q. What inspires you to write your stories?
A. I usually write through the inspirations of my previous lives and interesting era-events during my reincarnation process.
Q. What makes your writing stand out from the crowd?
A. The way of my storytelling, fiction of my book, and the subject of my book are all extremely different from all the previous literature’s. Written by using anamorphous method (which was used for the first time in this book along the whole history of literature), this novel tells its own story on each chapter, and when stepped away it creates a totally different view.
Q. What do you find is the biggest obstacle when it comes to your writing?
A. My biggest struggle is the uncertainty of my readers’ tolerance level on differentiate and continuing to write by guessing on that.
Q. Do you have a specific routine when it comes to writing?
A. I first write in my mind. I build up the story by retelling myself over and over again. Rest is just like receiving a paper from the printer.
Q. What do you do when you are not writing?
A. When I am not writing, I live what I will write.
Q. How important is marketing and social media for you?
A. Marketing and social media are the only ways to create demand for users to read the book.
Q. Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
A. Write what you want to read.
Q. What’s your next step?
A. Adding a new circle to my reincarnation.
