Self Publishing Review: The Darryl Sloan interview

April 10th, 2009 No comments

The excellent site Self Publishing Review is now hosting my interview with self published author Darryl Sloan, a writer that I’ve been following for a couple of years. The article is entitled Chionophobia and Other Sticky Problems: The Darryl Sloan Interview. The focus of the interview is his current project, the post apocalyptic short novel Chion, but we get into all kinds of interesting stuff about both the author’s inspirations and views on life.

I only discovered SPR recently and I heartily recommend it to anyone with an interest in self publishing or writing in general. I’m gradually working through the articles on subjects such as using merchandise for personal brand building and putting a DIY book tour.

Darryl Sloan: Chion

In other news, I need to get payment sent off to Darryl for his new book (sorry Darryl, I’m not very good at getting around to things like that). For anyone who might be interested, Darryl Sloan is an indi novel author who has just finished his second book. I’m happy to pay my £4.50 for the novel for two reasons. Firstly, the premise sounds both vaguely post-apocalyptic (my favourite sci-fi sub-genre) and genuinely intriguing and secondly, as I can write it off as a ‘research expense’ to get hold of a copy a ‘print on demand’ book to see what I think to the quality.

If this sounds like the sort of thing that you’re interested in check out his website.
