                                          Q & A with Josh Sinason

1. Tell us a little bit about your main characters.
Archie is a poor kid from a small town in New Jersey, He’s desperately trying to fix things in his life but it’s not working. So when he stumbles on a weapon that can get him anything he wants, something that can fix all his problems and change the cycle he and his family are stuck in what’s he going to do and how royally is he going to screw it up?

2. Describe your ideal writing spot.
My couch, with the ac on after a good workout, maybe a Starbucks green tea or a root beer on the table. I need some room to move around too because sometimes I get up and tell a part of a story like a standup routine. I don’t know why, it kinda helps.

3. Who designed the covers for your book and what was that process like for you as the author?

Dawné Dominique designed the cover after I gave her some references, mostly from movies and things.

4. What is the best advice you have been given?
Recently? Don’t be afraid to make your character a bit of a jerk. Give everyone flaws and punch them in the face as early as possible

5. How do you keep busy when you're not writing?
I love going to old movies at the Logan Theater in Chicago, and I’m actually a huge pro wrestling fan so I watch the WWE network like crazy these days. I’ve been all about Terry Funk today.

6. If you could have any superhuman ability, what would you choose and why?
I wouldn’t hate to have Archie’s abilities in Vienna Sky, it’d be cool to absorbs skills from people, or would it be? Find out.

7. Which do you prefer: hard/paperbacks or ebooks?
I’m a paperback guy. I’m slowly starting on ebooks but hardcovers do look cool on the bookshelf

8. What book are you reading now?
I just started Grace Helbig’s book. It’s a lot of fun and I’m working my way through the works of Graham Greene. The published version of The Third Man with his introduction is a master class in storytelling
