Interview with author Daniel Meyer

Kentucky Haunts

1. What really inspired you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and conveying it into a book?
To share a few of the many ghost stories that thrive in the state of a few of my own.
2. What is it about and whom do you believe is your targeted reader?
Ghosts and the places they inhabit. My target audience is both believers and skeptics, residents and visitors.

3. What do you hope will be the everlasting  thoughts for readers who finish your book? What should remain with them long after putting it down?
That the spiritual world of ghosts is something to be understood--not feared. Same answer, both questions.
4. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers?
The classic advice: write, read, write some more. Also, believe in yourself.
5. What trends in the book world do you see and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?
Although social and electronic media are growing and driving current trends, there will always be a place for printed books.
6. What great challenges did you have in writing your book?

7. If people can only buy one book this month, why should it be yours?
For both residents and visitors--the discovery of new places to share time, space, and new experiences with the ghostly world.

Based in Louisville, Kentucky, Daniel Meyer divides his time between searching the night for ghosts and gargoyles, and seeking the sunrise on rocky beaches where whales breach in the distance and mermaids call to those who listen. Always attempting to create the perfect novel and the perfect margarita, he writes on topics as diverse as: ghosts, gargoyles, labyrinths, inspirational writing, environmental protection, and more. He has one son, two cats, a partridge in a pear tree . . . and one hell of a sense of humor.  For more information, please see:
