JQM PRESENTS A BLOG POST INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR Belart Wright

JQM PRESENTS A BLOG POST INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR Belart Wright

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF:

I’m an author, gamer, game designer, uncle, and worker of minimum wage.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO WRITE?

The sport of it along with my overactive imagination. Really, it’s a compulsion at this point.

WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE AUTHORS? WHY?

J.K. Rowling, George R.R. Martin, Akira Toriyama, Yoshihiro Togashi, Bruce Timm, Paul Dini, Roald Dahl, and Kentaro Miura. These are the authors who have the greatest influence over my work and I could read their work until the end of time.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE BOOKS? WHY?

The Song of Ice and Fire series along with all the Harry Potter Books. Hell House by Richard Matheson is a recent favorite.

WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE LITERARY CHARACTERS? WHY?

I’m not really able to separate literary characters from the stories I love. I just lump them all together in a big love fest. If I give it some critical thought, I’d say characters like Hagrid Tyrion Lannister are some of my faves. Those characters with a heart of gold.

DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR FELLOW AUTHORS AND/OR ASPIRING AUTHORS?

Stay consistent and write the stuff you love. If you want to focus on sales then learn to write in a specific genre and hone in on that. The marketing stuff is tricky so learn as much as you can about that while maintaining your passion for the craft.

IMAGINE ONE OF YOUR BOOKS IS ABOUT TO BECOME A FILM OR TV SHOW. WHO IS YOUR “DREAM CAST?” AND WHO DO YOU ASK TO CREATE THE SOUNDTRACK?

I love the Sega Dreamcast :-P. As far as cast goes, I’m really not sure. I tried to choose a good one before a few years back when Wattpad let you choose potential actors but it’s been a over half a decade since I did that. I’ll leave it to fans of the story.

IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SHARE WITH POTENTIAL READERS?

Please join my Patreon! Lol. I’m joking … but really I’m completely serious. I need to drop at least one of my jobs so that I can write, record, and stream more.

WHERE CAN WE GO TO LEARN MORE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR LITERARY WORKS?

Thanks for asking.

You can most easily find me on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/~/e/B00R8ZPET2
