Q & A:
The best thing about writing this book?
The best thing about writing this book was finally getting the complete concept on paper and out of my head. It was a demon I had to exorcise. . . .
Where did you get your idea for this story?
I wrote Of Little Faith over the course of 24 years. I have no clue where the idea for the story came from or what compelled me to write it. I started the first draft at the age of 24. I stopped writing at chapter 2 because that chapter was overwhelmingly painful and I was much too inexperienced to write it. I went back to college, learned to write, signed up for all classes that would help me with the book, then wrote the full first draft at age 30. My wife at the time read it and then divorced me (yes, the first draft was just that bad ;-). At age 32, over the course of 7 months, I rewrote the 60,000 word first draft into a 130,000 word novel. Over the next 5 years, I rewrote and revised. I published the book in 2006 so I could put a cover on it and give it out to friends and family. It was never promoted so the book just gathered dust for over 7 years–which was fine by me since I just wanted that story out of my head and on paper. I eventually remarried to a wonderful woman. She read and loved the book and urged me to publish it as an ebook. Who am I to argue with my wife? So back to work…. In 2013 / 2014, Over the course of 6 months, I revised, fine-tuned and edited the book. What you have before you is my FINAL vision and story, a story unlike anything you have ever read. I do hope you enjoy the ride!
What would you tell aspiring writers out there?
Be willing to sacrifice for your writing. My own personal experience with this single novel drove me to the brink many times. I take on these characters as if they are me. I think their most horrible thoughts and feel what they feel. It is not fun. . . . Writing, for me, is very painful. I struggle as my characters struggle. I suffer as they suffer. But the ultimate payoff is very satisfying. Have vision, patience, and never give up!
