The Seven Sisters-- J.B. Hendricks

J.B. Hendricks lives in Columbus, is a graduate of The Ohio State University where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree studying folklore, witchcraft, poetry, and British classics, and this is his first published novel. He likes cats, music, watching Doctor Who, and hopes one day, suddenly and inexplicably, to know how to play the piano.

The Seven Sisters is a character driven epic fantasy concerning the tale of seven young women with seven supernatural powers. These powers are based on the five senses and two fantastic senses that do not exist (most would agree) in our world. Their world, the wondrous realm of Gleeb, is home to magic, monsters, and swordplay. When Gleeb is thrown into chaos, will the seven sisters, armed with their wits, their love for one another, and the help of a motley cast of allies, be able to overcome a wizard with a god complex and no conscience, a mad historian, arcane cyborgs, and a lascivious demoness and her dark master? That's the story. And there's a cat that quotes Goethe too.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
The Seven Sisters is reasonably priced at $2.99, it has gone through two editions and is thoroughly edited, the book and its super convenient table of contents (each chapter listed in the table of contents is also linked to the beginning of the respective chapter in the book) was formatted by an IT professional, and, most importantly, it is a fresh, fun, and exciting work of fiction.

Q: Why did you go indie?
I saw indie publishing as an opportunity to be involved in an exciting movement in the literary industry. Also, the idea of selling direct to customers and thus establishing a more personal relationship with my readers appealed to me. When you buy my book, you buy it from me and you guarantee that I'll keep writing fiction if you keep enjoying it. You don't have to worry about most of your money going to the next big Twilight promotional campaign. You're supporting an artist, not a company.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
I'd have to go with Lloyd Alexander, Roger Zelazny, Neil Gaiman, and Dan Abnett.
