Hey friends, fans and the fellowship of the ring! It’s another 3Q’s and this one is featuring the super awesome, RJ Roles! You might now him as one of the founders of the hugely popular Facebook Page – Books of Horror. Or one of the dynamic duo behind Crimson Pinnacle Press. Or you may even know him from his own books or the Books of Horror Community Anthologies!
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?
RJ: I write when I can find the time. Whether I’m at work or at, I don’t really have time set aside for purely writing. That being said, I’m always working out a story in my head or playing around with new ideas. At the bare minimum, I like to hit at least 500 words. Often up to 1k in a session.
Steve: Out of all your releases, do you have a favorite character you’ve written?
RJ: I’ll always have a special place in my heart for Janney Fenton (main protagonist from Girl’s Best Friend and the subsequent sequel(s)) Another would be Lucifer from my story Devil on my Shoulder in the Old Scratch Anthology. I definitely put a lot of myself into his personality.
Steve: Tell me about your newest release (novel/story/poem/novella) and why someone should read it!
RJ: Old Scratch is the latest I’ve put out through Crimson Pinnacle Press. I’ve been working on (slowly) the 3rd and final? Book in the Tangled Web series. And I’m planning to release a short story collection by the end of the year. I would hope with my writing that I’m able to thoroughly offer the reader a bit of entertainment and distraction for the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Steve: Bonus Question! What is your favorite album?
RJ: It very hard to choose just one but I’d have to say Frances the Mute by The Mars Volta. It’s coming up on 20 years since its release and I still love it. It’s like comfort food for the soul to me.
Awesome! Thank you RJ!
