Invisible Dawn - Weston Kincade

Bio: Weston Kincade

Creative writing has always been a passion, and I have helped invest in future writers for years while teaching high school English. In my spare time I write poetry, short stories, and have completed a paranormal coming-of-age story, A Life of Death, to be released June of 2011. I am currently working on the sequel to Invisible Dawn in the Altered Realities Series. As the wordsmithing process continues, I find great ideas in the oddities of mundane life and love stretching the boundaries of human understanding.

Product description:

Invisible Dawn by Weston Kincade:
To keep a promise and save his long-lost goddaughter, computer programmer Jedd Altran sacrificed everything, including his wife and newborn son. Now, they must pass through worlds far different than their own to discover mysteries locked within Madelin’s mind and escape the clutches of trained government killers.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?

A: I believe real characters and relationship are very important to a story. In my books, the characters become friends, for better or worse. In addition to an action-packed plot, my characters have checkered pasts, allowing for an enthralling read that will have readers smiling and crying. Readers can escape their lives, only to be thrust into a world of dark secrets that threatens to swallow them whole.

Q: Why did you go indie?

A: I tried to get published for a few years, but the ongoing recession and dwindling acceptances of debut novels made it all but impossible to get started in traditional publishing. I met Scott Nicholson at a book signing when I was in college and picked up the sci-fi collection that included his story, “The Vampire Shortstop”. I was impressed by the allusions to the real world while remaining true to the paranormal. When I began writing, I got back in touch with him and followed his blogtour. I discovered that in this new digital world, we can make our own future and speak with our readers directly.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?

A: Well, my genre is a bit different from what I normally read. While I like the sinister feel of horror and thriller like Nicholson’s stories, I also enjoy reading fantasy like Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time Series, and Rowling’s Harry Potter. I’m intrigued by the mysteries of the paranormal and things that could be possible, so my writing is often a combination of the two. One reader compared Invisible Dawn to Blade Runner in its vivid imagery, suspense, intense action, and thrilling flow.
