About Brian McGoldrick:
I am a natural introvert, and do not like being in the spotlight. The older I get the more averse to crowds and social media I am becoming. While in my younger days I did spend entirely too much time in martial arts dojos and boxing gyms, my preferred forms of entertainment are books and computer games. I have many of partially written novels on my hard drives, and dozens more floating around in my all to cluttered brain, waiting their turn at the keyboard.
What inspires you to write?
I suppose for me writing is an evolution from paper and pencil RPG gaming. Gaming was an outgrowth of reading, but I started customizing game systems for use personal use. From there it went to world building for gaming campaigns, and after a while I started writing. A number of my partially written books use characters I created for various RPG campaigns, that I reworked to fit the new worlds I was creating.
Tell us about your writing process.
I have loose bullet point outline, that is subject to massive change as I write. I suppose you could say that I am 1/2 outline and 1/2 organic in my writing style. The stories come to life for me as I write them, and sometime I find doing a complete 180 on a plot line, because a new idea grew out of what I was currently writing.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I don’t talk my characters, but they are constantly talking with, arguing with, and threatening one another inside my mind. It gets bad enough to keep me awake at times.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I write dark, violent stories that are not suited for everyone, but I knew there were people out there that would find them interesting. What finally pushed me over the edge to actually publish, strangely enough, was a manga called Bakuman. It was a story that followed an artist / author mangaka (manga writer) team from middle school to their mid-20s.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think the major publishing houses are in for a hard time, and a lot more writers will follow the indie publishing route.
What genres do you write?: Science Fiction, Fantasy
What formats are your books in?: eBook
