About Preston Chase Sharpe:
P.C. Sharpe is a man that likes to refer to himself in the third person. The guy never sleeps. Never.
Seriously, I have an extreme passion for a great story. I dig writing stories that I hope will move you emotionally and challenge you mentally, but I like to infuse that with absurd worlds, intelligent characters, and outlandish ideas.
One might say that I try to walk the line between the realistic and the absolutely insane.
I cannot promise you a great work of literature, but I do promise a fun ride. My first novel is Chrono-Crossed, which is available in the Kindle store. I currently have plans to make CC a four-part series. I have devoted many hours of my life on the novel: planning, brainstorming, editing, etc.
I hope that those that find it will appreciate it in its entirety and pray that it moves you in some way.
(Also, for astute readers that will notice what seems to be a glaring flaw in the novel, please note that this is an intentional decision from a design standpoint. It is an intentional move on my part that I plan to further delve into in future installments of the series.)
What inspires you to write?
Characters are the heart of every story. I tend to use my own deepest emotions, thoughts, concerns, and fears in anything that I write. If I cannot relate to a character, I cannot be invested in the plot, no matter how great it may be.
Tell us about your writing process.
Pop in some headphones and play some music. I post up in a local coffee shop and zone out the world. Get lost in your story.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I really delve into who these people are. What do they think? What do they want? What are they feeling? I want to make them feel real, despite being in extraordinary circumstances.
What advice would you give other writers?
Writing is hard work. It seems easy in theory, but then you realize that your first draft isn’t as crisp as you had imagined it. It can get depressing because you have this masterful work envisioned in your head. It will all come together, however. You just have to be an honest author. Don’t write for anyone but yourself. It is your story.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
A ton of research. I wanted my own voice in my book and didn’t want someone else influencing the work, so I self-published to keep it intact. I also handled my own cover art and advertising.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Self-publishing will continue to grow, but traditional publishing isn’t going anywhere.
What genres do you write?: Action, Adventure, Fiction, Fantasy, and more.
What formats are your books in?: eBook
