Author Interview – Todd Cheney

at 3:00 AM

How did you come up with the title?

Well, there are circles of magic, and the seventh one is special. Remember that work by Dante, “The Inferno”? I read some of that and thought that “The Seventh Circle” had a nice ring to it. Alliteration and all. That’s how it started anyway.

Who is your publisher?

Me. Oh, and if you want a paper copy, go through Iuniverse. You can find those through Amazon as well as the Kindle version.

Why did you choose to write this particular book?

I was struck by the insane idea it could change my life forever. Perhaps that’s still true? Or maybe, it already has and I just haven’t realized it yet.

What was the hardest part about writing this book?

Doing it every day while I was in process. The book is written in four parts, which originally were four separate books. However, I decided to make it all one book, sort of a definitive edition, and that’s what its current form is. Also, writing “The Seventh Circle” took about six years because I had to fit it in with everything else that was going on, from college to work and you name it.

How do you promote this book?

Online ads mostly. Very rarely through friends or word of mouth. I also advertised in a magazine earlier this year (2013), however, I wasn’t able to determine the results from that.

How much of the book is realistic?

None of it. It’s a fantasy and that’s what makes it good. I feel sometimes that realism will bog down a good story and if it does, out the window with it!

Can we expect any more books from you in the future?

Maybe. I haven’t decided yet. I had started a Kickstarter project to fund another self-published book that I would write, but I didn’t hit my goal. So it’s just a matter of finding the right idea or motivation now.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Working in IT somewhere, possibly in a nice condo or small house instead of renting. Maybe having another couple of books as notches on the belt.
