My friend James Wymore has a new book out. It’s called Exacting Essence, and it’s a YA adventure-horror tale in which James tackles the most evil force the universe has ever known.
That’s right: clowns.
To celebrate Exacting Essence, James, and his work, I invited him over here and asked him three question.
Q: You’re all over the map in speculative fiction — steampunk, epic fantasy, YA thrillers. If you could narrow down the James Wymore brand to three words, what would those words be?
JW: Setting has meaning!
Q: You write, you promote, you edit, you publish, you’re the Energizer Bunny of the Utah writing scene. What do you do to replenish your energy when it runs low?
JW: Writing IS how I replenish my energy. It’s my escape.
Q: Seriously, isn’t it hard to be so handsome?
JW: Well, I’ve found tall men are ALL handsome, so it was just luck. When I am fending off the “many” admirers, I just remind myself how difficult it must be for them to endure this chiseled visage. Wait, that was my wonderful friend, Fiction, once again gracing my psyche.
