Stephen James Price-- Pages of Promises
Stephen James Price was born and raised in New York , but has lived in the deep south (or within a two hour drive of it) for more than half of his life. Although he claims to be northern by birth and southern by choice, he has never said “ya’ll” and even finds it difficult to write.
He currently lives in central Arkansas in a haunted house on “The Hill,” the Price family compound. His hobbies include reading, writing, photography and telling “Grandpa’s Lies.”
Q: What will readers like about your book?
This is a collection of short stories that covers everything from dark fantasy to coming-of-age stories, from humorous tales, to my own little twists on your favorite monsters. I like to think this collection has something for everyone. It has been professionally edited and formatted and has a cover that was created by one of the best cover men in the industry.
Q: Why did you go indie?
With the changes that we're seeing in the publishing industry and the rapid growth of e-readers, I felt it would be ridiculous to do it any other way. Mainstream publishers aren't attacking the e-reader market as aggressively as many of the indie authors. I consider myself lucky to be at the forefront of this exploding paradigm shift in book publishing.
Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
Not to be too cliche, but Stephen King, Bentley Little, Scott Nicholson, Brian Keene, Douglas Clegg and dozens of other dark fiction (read horror) have all influenced me greatly.
