Interview With Author Joshua Belcher
1. What type of books do you write? William Jarema & Joshua Belcher have published two books in the Dark/Science Fiction/Adventure genre. They are currently working on finishing the trilogy as well as a parallel novel. Fr. William Jarema has published seven books on health and mental wellness.
2. What is your newest book about? The Monastery of Fordosheol is the second book of this trilogy. It revolves around the heroism of a group of young Dwarves who have taken on the mission of the Caves of Longevity to invade and destroy the Monastery of Fordosheol in order to thwart the evil plans of Archbishop Haridan who is bent to destroy the world and conquer the Dragons.
3. What inspired you to write it? William is the mastermind. He had a vision while on a flight over to England of all nine books planned.
4. What is the writing process like for you? We write in conjunction with collaboration. We discuss, map out and pre-envision before taking out individual chapters. Writing is an enjoyable experience, though the difficulties of editing are endless.
5. What did you do before you became an author? William has been a priest for 25 years and is the founder of the Mercy Center www.mercycenter.com, a holistic place of healing. Joshua's many adventures have taken him around the world and he has worked in the grocery industry for the past 18 years.
6. How does it feel to be a published author? For both of us it is a feeling of great accomplishment, though the era of buying books and authorship is in a very difficult stage and 'getting known' is a lottery.
7. Any advice for struggling writers? Persevere. Don't give up on your dreams. Line out your plans on paper. Ask good questions. Give out a lot of books.
8. Where do you see book publishing heading? The industry is in a transition. Many people don't want to spend money on paper books anymore, though there is room for opportunity online.
