This is a cool server because it’s just creative. The plots are enormous, and it’s super simple to do what you want to do. I think this is a really neat server to play on. You can find it at creativefun.eu.

Fat Vampire

Dynamite Review

Fat Vampire By Johnny B. Truant

Plot:

When overweight treadmill salesman Reginald Baskin finally meets a co-worker who doesn’t make fun of him, it’s just his own bad luck that tech guy Maurice turns out to be a thousand-year-old vampire. And when Maurice turns Reginald to save his life, it’s just Reginald’s own further bad luck that he wakes up to discover he’s become the slowest, weakest, most out-of-shape vampire ever born, doomed to “heal” to his corpulent self for all of eternity. As Reginald struggles with the downsides of being a fat vampire — too slow to catch people to feed on, mocked by those he tries to glamour, assaulted by his intended prey and left for undead — he discovers in himself rare powers that few vampires have… and just in time too, because the Vampire Council might just want his head for being an inferior representative of…

Amazon Indie Author Interview with Arlene Lagos

Thank you Arlene Lagos for allowing us at Minecraft Books to interview you!

Headshot

Lagos has written poetry, stage plays, screenplays and short stories for over 20 years. In addition to writing the Beyond Earth Series, a YA Science-Fiction Fantasy Trilogy, she also has twelve short stories published in the Giant Tales anthology. Lagos currently resides in Massachusetts with her husband and their daughter.

1. What was your first published book?

Beyond Earth, Book I of the Beyond Earth Series, a Young Adult Science-Fiction Fantasy Novel.

2. Why do you enjoy writing as an indie author?

I really enjoy the freedom of writing in my own time frame. Also, being able to bring a book to life from an idea to a published work is cathartic. I’ve always been a “soup to nuts” kind of gal, wondering how things work, the roles people play in each facet of a creation. Being an independent self-published author has given me great appreciation for what agents, marketers, bloggers, street teams, public relations professionals, editors, cover designers and publishers do everyday.

3. The biggest challenge to being an indie author in today’s publishing world?
The biggest challenge is having to do the job of 10 people with your own money! Growing a fan base and making sure your work is great takes its toll, but its all worth it in the end.

4. A favorite fan review or memory?
One of my favorite memories was when I was attending the Rhode Island Comic Con with my Sci-fi series, Beyond Earth and a gentleman that had bought my first book, “Beyond Earth” at the Boston Comic Con found me and was very excited because his friend had taken his copy and wouldn’t give it back so he needed to buy another one! He was even more excited when he found out I had released book 2, “Beyond Planets” so he could buy one for both him and his friend and have them signed there!

5. Advice for new writers?
Everyone starts out in their garage, so to speak. You are going to be awful. We all start out that way. But you can’t give up. Don’t let anyone tell you that its not worth your time. If it is in your heart, keep writing. Never stop writing. You will get better.

6. Goals for writing in the next year?
I’m going to be spending the next year revamping an old piece of middle-grade fiction I’d been wanting to publish as well as starting another Butterflies novel.

7. Anything exciting or new coming out soon?
Yes! On June 24th, I’ll be launching my new novel, “Butterflies Wake” – an underground female mafia rights the wrongs of an unjust society. You can join the online launch at https://www.facebook.com/events/708632445823978/
