JQM LITERARY SPOTLIGHT PRESENTS Dusk Mountain Blues by Deston J. Munden
FIRST, LET’S GET TO KNOW YOU A BIT. TELL US SOMETHING UNIQUE ABOUT YOURSELF:
Hello! My name is Deston J. Munden, author of Dusk Mountain Blues and Tavern. If I had to tell you one unique thing about myself it will be that I’m a samurai nerd. I’m a huge fan of old black and white samurai films and westerns (which has a lot more overlap than people think). Other than that, I’m a dungeon and dragons fan boy, I love video games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age, and I’m a budding cook.
WHAT IS THE GENRE AND AUDIENCE FOR THIS BOOK:
Science Fiction (Space Opera/Space Western). The intended audience is for adults 18 and up who enjoys a good blend of science fiction, comic like battles, and a western atmosphere.
WHAT WAS THE INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THIS BOOK:
Quite a few things inspired this book. Like I said before, I’m a huge fan of old black and white westerns but the major thing that inspired this book was bluegrass music (thus the name of the series being Blues). From there, I started being inspired by other elements that I liked such as Red Dead Redemption, X-Men, Borderlands, and Firefly and made this universe.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR BOOK:
Dusk Mountain Blues is a science fiction that follows three characters from the same family but different generations, each with their personalities, superhuman abilities and flaws. They live on a backwater planet named C’dar in the middle of nowhere, smuggling and scavenging to survive. But, it’s their home. That’s until the main force of a colonization force named the Bluecoats comes planet side and threatens to take everything they hold dear. Drifter, Appetite, and Kindle—mutants from a lost generation—must use their wits, their guns, and their abilities to fight off the forces of the Bluecoats and their cyborg and android soldiers. It’s perfect for fans of X-Men, Red Dead Redemption, Borderlands, Firefly, Gareth L Powell, and James S.A Corey.
