Interview With Author Eric Power



 

Q: What motivated you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and turning it into a book? 

A: I was asked by my mentor to co-write a book with him. I had been thinking about writing a book for a while. When my mentor Greg asked, I accepted. I soon took over the book and pretty much turned it into a story for veterans. It was the universe who chose me to send this message, I am just the delivery man. 

 

Q: What is it about and who is it for? 

A: It is a story about a veteran fresh out of the military and his experiences with mentorship along the wayThe book is for veterans and their loved ones. 

 

Q: What do you hope the reader will be left with after reading it? 

A: I hope this will give veterans a sense of understanding about themselves knowing they are not alone. For civilians, a better understanding of the men and women who have served. 

 

Q: What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers - 

A: Don’t quit ... 

 

Q: What trends in the book world do you see -- and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?

A: Unfortunately, I do not follow publishing trends at this time. 

 

Q: What challenges did you overcome to write this book? 

A: It was a project that lasted a good 10 months. The challenge was finding the time to write. Being a full-time father, husband and entrepreneur along with a pandemic, I had to write early morning, or late evenings while everyone was asleep. 

 

Q: If people can buy or read one book this week or month, why should it be yours? 

A: This book will save the lives of veterans and help civilians understand the veteran family members a little better.
