On Monday, 11/29, I'll stop by BLKosiner's Book Blog.
The book signing in Columbia, MO, this past Saturday went so well. Thanks to all who showed up. I'm blessed with terrific readers, and it was nice to meet you in person!
Have a great Thanksgiving, everyone!
Please join me in welcoming John Herrick to Debbie's Book Bag, today. John is here to talk about his new book, From the Dead. Check out my review of From the Dead HERE!
DEB: John can you tell us a little about yourself?
JOHN: I'm a guy with a varied background, from computer work to marketing and a bunch of oddball stuff in between. I started writing at age eight, fell in love with it, and never stopped. It's remained one of the few constants in my life.
DEB: Tell us a little about your book, From the Dead? I love the cover, by the way, did you get the opportunity to have any input on it?
JOHN: From the Dead is a story of second chances. It traces a year in the life of a preacher's son who seeks an identity apart from public expectations. The first part of the novel traces his downward spiral into the dark depths of the human experience. The second portion traces his upward spiral into victory.
About the cover - thanks very much. Yes, the because the publisher isn't one of the huge houses, I had the opportunity to provide direct input into the creative direction of the cover. In fact, I selected the cover photo of the guy on the bench because it resonated with me immediately. Looking at it now, I realized many aspects of the photo symbolize facets of the story itself.
