It's finally here.
It's interesting knowing about a book from almost its inception.
Over the years, I've had many a conversation with authors. "What are you working on?" becomes something we ask each other. Political differences, backgrounds, opinions, work ethic, personal habits all disappear--our latest WIP is the one thing we have in common, the one thing that binds us, that makes us family.
When you ask Dave Butler about what he's working on--if you both have the time--be prepared for a lengthy answer. And that's just if he wants to talk about one book, one project. I remember hearing about what would become Witchy Eye, his latest book that's available today. He talked of an alternate reality, America as it's never been, but could have been.
Sometimes conversations with Dave hurt my brain. When he goes into the intricacies of the story, the subplots, the characters. Seriously, it can be overwhelming, not necessarily what he says, but how he's interwoven complex subjects, amazing creativity, and even texts from ancient Hebrew scripts or other obscure references that he's not just thrown into the story, but that he's studied and knows. The author part of my brain hurts because I know how difficult it is to create a somewhat simple story. To put all these elements together is what overwhelms.
Today's the book launch for Witchy Eye. You can buy it at this link: HERE. I can't wait to get a copy for. I'll let you know if it hurts my brain, or simply entertains. My guess--it'll do both.
