Welcome to my stop on The River Runes Book Blog Tour! I've got some great stuff coming up!
About The River Runes
Published May 8, 2011
Jonathan is a young man, on the cusp of taking his Master's place as magician of Third Chapel. Things are better than he ever expected; he's becoming closer to his father, he is in the midst of a blossoming romance, and his magical abilities are growing every day. And then an exotic stranger named Bixby finds his way to Third Chapel. The faerie is curious about the people that inhabit Caithiir, the great city that stands so close to the woods, and Mother is not around to stop him from finding out what he can. Mother, however, has been awakened in Bixby's absence only to find that one of her own has openly defied her. Jonathan and his Master are determined to protect Bixby, but the cost may be more than they can afford to lose
Sneak Peek @ River Runes
On the Spot with Ken Lindsey
What inspired the idea for this story?
I wrote this story after I finished a short story about a city that had been destroyed and taken
back by nature. It was a more modern city, but it gave me tons of ideas.
If you had to rename your book what would you name it?
I already did rename it! Lol, the original working title of The River Runes was "The City."
Idea of a perfect dinner?
Hmm, tough one. Probably sushi, with something whip-creamy for dessert.
M&M's Or Skittles?
Was there an author that inspired you to write a fabulous book?
Oh man, so many authors. Stephen King, C.S. Lewis, Terry Brooks, Neil Gaiman, and lots more.
Who was the most supportive in your writing process? Most Influential?
By far, my girlfriend Ami has been the most supportive person in the world. She wasn't there when I
started the book, but I don't know if I could have finished it without her. Most influential would be my
dad, Ken Lindsey Sr. He was always reading anything he could get his hands on, and he dug in early
to make sure that I loved reading.
Theme Song for the book?
Happiness Writes White by Harvey Danger.
What are your Favorite scenes to write?
Action, for sure. Fighting, fires, explosions... it writes fast and hot for me.
What do you have in common with your MC?
I had swords on my wall when I was younger too, lol.
If you could have any other author to dinner what would it be?
Neil Gaiman, for sure.
Favorite fictional crush?
When I was a kid I was in love with Susan from the Narnia series.
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
I don't know if this counts, but I would want to be an earth bender.
If you designed your own fortune cookie what would it say?
"Blank pages will not fill themselves"
Best part so far about being published?
Getting to interact with people that have read my book. I am always surprised at how kind and
supportive strangers are.
Any advice to Aspiring Authors?
Turn off the tv. Read. Write. A lot.
Has being a writer changed the way you read and perceive literature?
Yes. It is hard for me to ignore when authors make mistakes that I know I make. I think it's a bit like
ignoring the log in your own eye and talking about the thorn in your neighbor's. Yes, that was from the
If your book was set in another place what would it be?
I think Caithiir would fit nicely, tucked away somewhere in Middle Earth.
Any upcoming projects we should look for?
Yes! Clockwork Charlie later this year. I'm so excited about this book!
If you had to change the name of your MC what would it be?
Master Chief. I think more people would buy the book if the blurb talked about Master Chief.
