"For me Dracula was a big influence, mostly for atmosphere. It's definitely the definitive horror novel, if you ask me. I am also heavily influenced by cinema, particularly B movies. There's something inventive and surreal about them and I…"

"I wish I was a fast reader. It takes me forever to finish a book. Maybe because I'm noting the writing itself, as well."

"Interesting. I recently watched some author panels, one of Veronica Roth and the other (I think...) of Suzanne Collins. They both said that 1984 was a significant mark in their writing life as a youngster."

"I see! You did/do most certainly have a diverse, broad, well-rounded taste in genre and style. That is impressive, and I respect that you didn't allow discouragement from others hinder your reading choices. Thanks for your comment."

            The explosions around us were deafening.

            The Reds had caught us by surprise, camouflaged in the branches of the trees. We had always been known for our affinity and talent for camouflage, but they had beat us at our own game. When hundreds of armed and armored bodies jumped down from the limbs, I braced myself for a bloodbath.

            The first shot fired was aimed at me. It whizzed past my ear, catching a lock of my hair and blasted through Marty's…

Title Advice?

Posted by Daniel Hale on December 14, 2015 at 18:29 0 Comments
