Scoot Bryan is the author of the Dark Beginnings Series and is visiting us this weekend.
It is good to have you Scott. Tell us how long have you been writing?
Since 1998 when I joined an online writer’s group. I began my current set of novels in October of 2004.
Nice that is the same year I started too. Tell us where you were born and where you live now.
I was born in Pasadena California. I moved all over the western US (including Hawaii!) until I finally settled in Northern Utah.
Hi neighbor! What is the name of your new book?
The one that is currently with the beta readers, and almost ready to be e-published, is NIGHT CHILDREN: DARK CHANGES. It still has some editing to do and so I’ll refrain from saying too much about it at this time. It is the second book in my Dark Beginnings Series.
However I can talk about the first book in the series which is currently out wherever ebooks are sold.
NIGHT CHILDREN: DARK BIRTH
So interesting; tell us more about it. Perhaps a back cover blurb?
Annabelle and Roland’s lives changed forever after they died. Annabelle is terrified of facing Dominic, the master vampire who killed their parents. She’d rather get a stake to the heart than fight him but a confrontation is inevitable. Roland is thirsty for the battle, longing for revenge. They train to survive Dominic and waves of his loyal werewolves, vampires, sasquatches and dark witches.
As if their new undead lives weren’t complicated enough, they must rescue a real witch from the Salem Witch Trials and dodge lethal attacks from a cruel monster hunter.
They have a short season to master their new abilities, including transforming into bats and mesmerizing others, before Dominic and his dark warriors launch their final, devastating attack.
Paranormal tale… Goody we like them. Is there a book trailer for your book?
Not yet but I’d love to learn how to make one!
I could help on that… Do you have a favorite character, why?
Annabelle Foresight, my main protagonist. Because no matter what is thrown her way, she seems to be able to push back her fears and face it. She hasn’t let her new undead life change her. She refuses to give in to her cravings and always stands ready to defend those weaker and in need of help, especially children.
What kind of impact do you expect your works to have in the reader’s lives?
I hope that kids who suffer neglect or abuse, bullying or any turmoil, will see how Ann faces the odds despite her fears and decide they, too, can face their personal “monsters”.
I believe that is a very important goal in this day and age. Do you have any advice for authors trying to break into the industry?
Write! Just write and keep persistent at it.
Amen to that. What are your new year’s goals?
I would like to publish DARK CHANGES, finish DARK LOSS and finish Myths.
Wow, that is quite a few big goals. Where can we find your book?
