Welcome to Day 4 of My Favorite Things: Steampunk Week!
Today I’m welcoming Arthur Slade, author of The Hunchback Assignments series, Dust, Draugr, and much more! Mr. Slade is also offering a *signed* copy of The Hunchback Assignments to one lucky winner (please see the end of this post for giveaway details)!
**GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED**
Arthur, thank you so much for joining me!You’re a writing machine! You’ve written more than 15 books, as well as numerous short stories and articles! Whew! Did you always know you wanted to be a writer?
What were some of your literary influences as a child?
JRR Tolkien, of course. And Lloyd Alexander. But by far the biggest influence was Ray Bradbury. I devoured all of his short stories and novels, anything I could get my hands on. One of my prize possession is a letter that he wrote to me after I sent him a copy of my novel DUST as a thank you for all his years of inspiration.
I’m currently reading my way through your awesome library and I especially adore The Hunchback Assignments series. Empire of Ruins (Hunchback Assignments 3) comes out in the US in September, and I can’t wait! Will there be more books in the series?
Who are your heroes?
When you’re not writing, what do you like to do to relax?
What would your readers be most surprised to learn about you?
Quick! Is there anything that makes you laugh out loud?
Is there any news of upcoming projects or events you’d like to share with us?
Thank you so much for taking the time, Arthur!
