About William Irvin Rice:
William Irvin Rice grew up in a small town, as a big fan of horror, SciFi, thriller and mystery books and movies of the 70s and 80s. He turned his passion into writing relatively late (in his late 30s), but he lives by the motto that you’re never too old to pursue your dreams.
As a part of his college education, William also gained a lot of knowledge about the world mythologies (Norse especially), incorporating it craftily into his writing.
He’s not fond of excessive gore in sake of gore. His writing relies more on a good old creepy atmosphere and slow build up that chill your bones and curdle your blood.
What inspires you to write?
Usually great books and movies. Real life is bleak and dull, so I rather look for an inspiration elsewhere. Fortunately, I have mischievous imagination that helps me a lot.
Tell us about your writing process.
Writer must have a good outline to avoid potential plot holes and logical inconsistencies. Not only for the story, but also for the characters.
I like having a solid base for my plot, as well as well developed characters. You need a good outline for that.
However, once I start writing, outline becomes just a road sign. Story changes as I walk that road.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I’m not much of a talker. I rather listen.
What advice would you give other writers?
Never wait for inspiration to knock at your door. It never comes. Just keep writing.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I thought I’d reach broader audience if I self-publish and ebook. Because, finding readers is my main motif.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
It’s all matter of convenience. Paper books will never die. Same goes for ebooks. Both formats will have their audience. I believe people will read more than today, which is a great thing.
What genres do you write?: Horror. Science Fiction, Mystery, Thriller
What formats are your books in?: eBook
