Author Interview – Madeleine McLaughlin

at 5:30 AM

How did you come up with the title? My editor didn’t like the title I had so since my contract was in front of me, I came up with something that would tell you something without giving anything away.

Can you tell us about your main character? Kevin is a ten year old boy who worships his father. He’s extremely curious about what he comes across in his father’s jail. Ahh…you’ll have to read the rest.

How did you develop your plot and characters? They developed in stride with one another, these were the characters that worked with this story.

Who designed the cover? Mike Zambrano. And he’s really good.

Who is your publisher? MuseItUp Publishing.

Why did you choose to write this particular book? It just came out of me.

What was the hardest part about writing this book? Re-writing.

Did you learn anything from writing this book and what was it? Just keep at it, plus I learned to promote.

How do you promote this book? Twitter, Facebook, Interviews, Sales.

Will you write others in this same genre? I’m working on another horror story now. In fact, two, one is short and one is long. I have a few flash fictions in the horror genre. I find I like horror, it’s very Christian, good versus evil. And your villains are pretty much already set out, they just have to be bad according to Christianity. So in a way, it’s more user-friendly than other genres where you have to come up with your protagonist and antagonist all by yourself.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? No.

How much of the book is realistic? I tried to make my characters life experiences as realistic as I could.

When Kevin learns of his mountain town’s evil past, he must struggle to understand his father’s part in it and how it affects himself.
