Today I am interviewing character Sarah Talmaiz from Stan Morris’ novel Sarah’s Spaceship Adventure.
Hello, can you tell us your name and a bit about yourself.
My name is Sarah Talmaiz. I am nineteen years old. I live in the Hoop, a humongous asteroid belt orbiting around the Saif star. I was born on Marl, the inhabited planet in our solar system. I’m a shipmate on a spaceship freighter that travels between Marl and Half Shell, our home, delivering rare ores to Marl, acquiring consumer goods, and selling them at various rocks (asteroids). My job is mostly about cargo. I use a giant two-story lift to pack huge bins on huge racks, and as we approach rocks I pull and sort goods that will be sold at the rock.
Where are you from and what is it like there?
Marl has two main continents and a number of small islands. The continents are fairly close together, separated by a narrow channel. There are twenty-five hours in a day and four-hundred days in a year. The Hoop has more rocks that anyone has counted. The belt lies between the gas giant, Junior, and Marl. Read more
Adin Anderson lives in a small town where the stagnant flow of time is considered peace and quiet, but that isn’t good enough for him. He may not be a big believer in fate, but something bigger has to be out there for him. And the day he receives a random letter from an unlikely source may be it.
Today I am happy to introduce Sixty-Seven Salamanders author Jeff Joseph. I’ve actually read his book — it was a lot of fun — and you can read that review here.
Hello Jeff. Tell us about your book(s). Is there one in particular you are promoting right now? What is it about?
Yes. I just recently published my debut novel called Sixty-Seven Salamanders; the first book of the trilogy.
What genre(s) do you write in? Who is your audience?
I just recently started writing, so it may change, but for now I’m focused on the young adult to new adult range.
How do you come up with the ideas for your writing?
Strangely enough, they just pop into my head while I’m sleeping. There have been many times where I wake up in the middle of the night to write down an idea. It’s tiring at times, but certainly worth it, haha. Read more
