This Fun-Loving Squirrel will keep things interesting--or get us into a ton of trouble. Please welcome Alyssa Archer!
# 1 - The 7 ‘need to know’ details:
Author Name: Alyssa Archer
Book: Arcadia Unlocked
Where to Buy Link:
#2 - Describe this book in 7, individual, words.
World of Warcraft mashup with Total Recall
(I’m gonna hafta dig out my LARPer gear for this one)
#3 - Describe your personality in 7, individual, words.
Passionate, Laid-back, Tenacious, Lazy, Fun-loving, Serious
#4 - Pretend you have just finished reading this book and in 7 sentences, describe your feelings. GO!
I hope there’s a book two.
In the meantime, I want to play World of Warcraft.
That was so much fun.
I wish there really was an Arcadia that I could visit.
Maybe in ten or twenty years the technology will be good enough.
Mmm, it’s fun to dream.
#5 - Rewrite a major scene in this book, in 7 words. Can be connected as in a sentence or individual.
Sneak up, backstab and slash, prison break
(Watch your backs, my squirrelly friends!)
#6 - In 7 sentences, tell me what you are writing, or working on, now?
I’m working on Arcadia Revisited, book two in the Arcadia LitRPG series.
We’ll find out Trent’s reaction to the outcome of book one, clear up some of the lingering unanswered questions, and leap on in to the next Arcadian adventure.
Of course, we have to find out what happens to Trent and Catriona for the long haul.
I’m fascinated by the possibilities in this genre.
There’s so much to explore and it’s exciting to be on the forefront of a new literary frontier.
Books three, four, and five (I’m pretty sure) will shift to feature luvs2heal, a minor character in book one, in the starring role.
I’m looking forward to shifting to a female main character, which is rare for the genre, and I believe readers are hungry for it.
(We squirrels are always hungry. Where are my nuts?)
#7 - Name 7 Indie Authors whose work you have read and enjoyed. If you haven’t read 7; shame on you.
For delightfully creepy middle grade stories, anything by Donovan Scherer is absolutely enchanting.
More LitRPG greats include Harmon Cooper and Robert Bevan.
Tom Hansen writes both LitRPG and UF.
H. Claire Taylor never fails to make me laugh and cry.
For literary fiction lovers, Mike Stop Continues’ Underworld took my breath away.
Caimh McDonnell’s Excellent A Man with One of Those Faces rounds out the list. https://www.amazon.com/Those-Faces-Dublin-Trilogy-Book-ebook/dp/B01LB4O01I
And there you have it, folks; in a nutshell. All of Alyssa's links are at a click, so check her out and meet me, Angel M., at the ole oak tree every weekend for another installment of #SQUIRREL!
If you are an author and would like to be squirreled, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and say "heck yeah, I want into the nut house". My goal is to post a new #SQUIRREL every week through 2017 and beyond, if there is enough interest.
