3Q’s – Joe Scipione takes us to the zoo!


Welcome once again! Today’s awesome guest is a writer who has been churning out some really great releases! Please welcome, Joe!

Welcome, Joe!


Steve: What does your writing time look like? Do you try and write at the same time each day? Do you have a word count you attempt to hit?

Joe: I try to keep a pretty regular schedule when it comes to writing. Sometimes during the day I have time to write but it’s never a regularly scheduled time and I don’t always get to sit down and write. At night however I have a good hour or two to really get some work done. My daughter has CP and is on a feeding tube so she needs someone with her when she has her feeding which takes a good chunk of time. I sit with her every night, she uses her phone and I get my writing done. It works well and she eats every night so I know I have that time set aside for writing daily. I don’t have a word count (or page count if editing) I just get done what I can in that chunk of time. If I’m nearing the end of a project though, I usually make extra time to get it done.

Steve: Out of all your releases, do you have a character you could write about forever?

Joe: In November I have a novella coming out from D & T Publishing titled DECAY. This is the first book in my Contact series. Not all the characters are the same, but the main character in Decay will come back again in future books. (Steve note – I’ve had the pleasure of reading an ARC of DECAY and it is fantastic!)

Steve: Tell me about your newest release (novel/story/poem/novella) and why someone should read it!

Joe: I have a story collection that just released in April called Zoo: Eight Tales of Animal Horror. There are seven short stories in the collection and one novella. They all deal with animals in one way or another. I’m not a big fan of stories where dogs or cats die and that wasn’t at all what I was trying to do with these stories. It’s not a bunch of animal attack stories either. I wanted to do something different and create animal centered stories that had different settings and different types of characters and still bring the horror. The reviews have been positive a far and people really seem to like it.
There is something for everyone so whether you’re a fan of cosmic horror, or dystopian horror or paranormal horror it’s all there. Even some western horror thrown in for good measure.

Steve: Bonus Question! Did you have a favorite wrestler as a kid?
Joe: I was a big wrestling fan growing up and had a lot of favorites but to answer the question…Ohhhh yeah! The Macho Man Randy Savage. Dig it?


How crazy! Two Macho Man fans in a row!
