Bradley Convissar "Dogs of War"
I am a 33 year old dentist from NJ with 2 young kids and a diabetic, mostly blind daschund named Friday. I went to college in New Orleans, where I earned my degree in evolutionary biology, and I earned my DMD in Newark NJ. Shortly after 9/11, I was evacuated from my apartment early one Sunday morning by men in full biohazard suits looking for a chemical weapon somewhere in the complex. I have released three short story collections under the Pandora's Children title, with the fourth on the way.
After divorcing his wife of two years, Gary Lettner thinks he has found the perfect house for himself and Molly, his eight-year-old daschund. But when the throats of the dead begin to cry out in a voice that only Molly can hear, and when evidence of past atrocities committed in his new home begin to surface, Gary finds himself an unlikely participant in a brutal quest for vengeance.
What will e-readers like about your book?
It’s not your . It’s a brutal and heart wrenching tale of revenge and sacrifice that readers will find themselves sucked into. It’s not too long, only 25,000 words, but it will take the reader on an emotional roller coaster that will stoke their anger but leave them satisfied in the end. Too often we read about or hear about horrible events in the news where justice is never realized. As a writer, I’ve found that exploring such events in my books and re-visualizing their endings offers me some peace when true life leaves me angry and disenchanted.
Why did you go indie?
At this point, convenience and control. I’m a dentist by day and father at night, which leaves precious little time to write. So I’ve been concentrating on writing and releasing short story collections and novellas to this point. This allows me to tell more stories and get more exposure than taking a year to write a single novel. Indie publishing allows me to publish shorter works at a price people are willing to pay. And when I get around to releasing my first novel, I’ll go Indie, too. The convenience and control is second to none, and the resources (graphic design, editing, marketing and advertising) are there for you.
Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
Stephen King, of course. . To this day, Weaveworld remains my favorite book.
