January 2, 2015 I began my first ‘Author Talk Interview Session’ to promote fellow authors and their work. The interview questions were created to spotlight the writer, show them love, peace and respect and allow them to tell you about their books and plans to promote. It is also designed to give other authors who read this blog, insights on how they can grow and share in this huge literary field. I firmly believe God’s way of doing business is by joining hands and helping each other….NOT THROUGH COMPETING GRASPING AND GRABBING! BE BLESSED!
I am very proud to introduce you to JW Luff. The interview was a blessing to me I learned a new trick for my promotions through our interview. I enjoyed our interview and I hope you will too. If you would like an interview with me contact me through my website and I will send you a questionnaire with instructions. This blog interview will be posted on Facebook, Goodreads and Linkedin.
AUTHOR BIO: I’m 55 years old and married to a wonderful Christian woman for the last 13 years. Working as a commercial pilot in the oil and gas industry, the Lord has blessed me with the time to write. And I’ve been able to use my writing as a ministry; after all nerds need Jesus too.
MY INTERVIEW QUESTIONS and JW’s answers:
1. What genre do you write?
I write Science Fiction from a Christian perspective.
2. What inspired you to write?
I’ve always been a Science Fiction fan; books, movies, TV shows. I grew up watching Lost in Space; the original black and white series. During the summer of 2011 I didn’t know it but I had Colon cancer. On my days off, I would be at the house so tired I didn’t feel like going anywhere or doing anything. God put a story on my heart and I picked up my laptop one day and started writing. It was strange because I didn’t know how it was going to end or that would even leave my hard drive. And I certainly didn’t know it would turn out to be a 3 book series. All of my ideas come straight from God.
3. What have you written?
I currently have 4 books published through Lulu.com and Amazon Kindle. The 3 book series entitled Virago 4. The second book is The Ebih and the third is The Alal. The fourth novel is the first book of the next series entitled: The NOAH Equation.
4. How many books do you have published?
5. Who is your publisher?
Lulu.com and Amazon Kindle
6. What are you promoting at the moment?
I’m pretty much promoting all of them all of the time.
7. Do you enjoy meeting people and promoting your work?
Yes, I do enjoy meeting new people and telling them about my books
8. Would you travel and do speaking engagements to promote your book(s)?
Yes, I would love to travel and do speaking engagements. I am always ready to talk about God.
9. List some places you would like to visit and meet fans?
I would go just about anywhere to meet fans.
10. Tell us your successful methods of promoting?
I’ve found that my best way of promoting is through the book trailers that I created. I discovered that I really enjoy making them. We live in such a visual society and the trailers are a way to reach a lot of people. I post them on UTube and GodTube. Using DAZ3D animation software, I am able to create scenes right out of the books.
11. Are you planning to write more books?
I am currently working on the second book in The NOAH Equation series entitled: The NOAH Remnant. This one will probably be a 3 book series also.
12. Where can we purchase your work?
You can find my books in paperback and Ebook on Lulu.com, Barnes and Nobles, IBooks, and Amazon. Here is the link to my store www.lulu.com/spotlight/virago4
13. In what formats can we purchase your book(s)? (ex. a. paperback b. E-book c. audio)
Paperback and Ebook
14. How can we keep up with your journey?
UTube and GodTube will have trailers about my books for everyone to enjoy.
If your book gets chosen for a movie, who would you like to play the main characters?
I really don’t know who I would want to play the main character
