Author Interview – Stephanie Erickson

8:00 AM Posted by James Noel , No comments


imageDid writing this book teach you anything and what was it?  I learned a lot from writing this book.  I think the biggest thing was the importance of marketing.  It’s a tremendous amount of work to write a book.  You think you’re done when the writing’s done, but that’s not true.  You have to pound the pavement with it if you want it to succeed.

Do you intend to make writing a career? Yes!

Have you developed a specific writing style? I think my style is always evolving and heavily influenced by whatever I’m reading at the time.

Have you ever had writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it? I tend to get writer’s block when I have a lot going on in my life, and I can’t focus.  When that happens, I read for inspiration.

Who designed the cover? I did, but I’m a graphic designer by day.

Who is your publisher? I self published The Blackout on Amazon, and am hoping to get it on Nook soon!

The world is thrust into darkness and silence, but no one knows why.

Molly is an English professor at a local liberal arts college when the world suddenly goes dark. Her husband, Gary, is a corporate pilot on the other side of the country. Grounded by what appears to be a catastrophic power outage, he has no way to communicate with his wife, let alone get home to her.

Not knowing whether her husband is alive or dead, Molly struggles to adapt to her new environment: without power, running water, transportation, a stable food supply, or any long-distance means of communication. Without knowing the cause of the outage, Gary must decide whether to wait for things to go back to normal, or to make the long and dangerous journey home on foot. Both must learn to survive after the Blackout.

If you liked Alas, Babylon you’ll love The Blackout!
