Bizarre Interview with Kyle Perkins #WeekOne

Author Kyle Perkins

By Kyle Perkins

So, this will be a new weekly feature on this blog every Sunday! I have grown bored of seeing the same questions being asked to authors in blog interviews and wanted to mix it up a bit. You know, the whole “So when is your next release?”, “What inspires you?” that whole bag. Basically, I want to get to know these authors and I’m sure that readers do too. So, let’s ask them questions they wouldn’t normally be asked so that we can all get to know your favorites a little bit. Deal?

Our first contestant comes at us from the balmy swamplands of America’s dick, Florida.

Please welcome, Lila Vale!

Question one: So, Lila.. Is it pronounced L-Eye-Lah or Lee-Lah?

Lila: The first one.

Question two: What’s your favorite position?

Lila: I’m just happy to be involved. Gun to my head, doggy.

Question three: I was…

A Good Question

Official website of Aaron L Speer

(FRAUD: a person or thing intended to deceive others, typically by unjustifiably claiming or being credited with accomplishments or qualities:) – ACTUAL definition.

Firstly I would like to thank the messages of support I have received after my post “How far would you go?” Went out yesterday. I was grateful but wasn’t sure why they were necessary until I discovered the below.

“* I would like to add that after posting another blog post called “How far would you go?” Was published, also supporting the previous article mentioned. My question to you is, if you need to pull apart the mystery to justify someone’s success, how far will you go?”

This was taken from an article titled “It Isnt Shit Talk Thursday, but I needed to talk”. 90% of the article was in response to the same article I was inspired by, so I’ll shift that to the side. I…

How Far Would You Go?

Official website of Aaron L Speer

I’ve seen a few blog posts/opinions about this particular subject, so I thought I’d throw my two cents worth in. As an Indie author, I’m proud to say that today it is far easier to embrace ones dream of writing a novel.

In the last ten or so years the Indie Community has come on in leaps and bounds, providing the millions upon millions of readers in the world with at least an alternative set of stories and ideas than what they are used to with traditional authors. We are not bound by any publishers rules, we are free to write what we want for the most part. No one tells us what we should put down and this is both a great thing and a crippling thing. The readers we want to reach do not know what they will get with us. Again, this carries pros and cons.

Indie community, you’re being catfished.

Author Kyle Perkins

By Kyle Perkins.

First off, let me start by saying that using a pen name is ABSOLUTELY OKAY AND SOMETIMES NEEDED! There is nothing wrong with using a pen name.

With that out of the way, let me explain something that really bothers me about the indie community.

My problem is when authors pander to their audience for sales by manipulating their fan base into believing absolute absurdities about them. You know the types, the authors that create elaborate stories about themselves to seem interesting to their audience so that they can sell books. I get it, all indie authors need to make money, but when you do it at someone’s expense, it’s really careless and shady behavior.

If the author you are following looks like this: absdude_rotator

Chances are, he isn’t an indie author.

Not to say that really attractive people aren’t writing, but just how many do you think…

WINNER!!! By Richard A. Hernandez

The echoes of his birthday celebration died down. Facebook posts that he individually answered, texts, calls. A busy time for someone with many friends. Now he just wanted to sleep. His belly having been filled with his favorite foods only added to the urgency of his drowsiness.
He turned off the lights and walked to his bed. Pulling back his covers he pulled out his phone and tossed it on the bed before kicking his clothes off and sliding into a comfortable pair of shorts.
He laid down, unlocked his phone…

The human mind, torrenting, hard drives, and why I need a life.

Author Kyle Perkins

By Kyle Perkins.

Okay, well, where to begin?

To understand what I am about to say, you’ll need to understand torrenting. I will explain this in the most basic way possible so that anyone can understand.BitTorrent_network.svgAlright, all set? Good.

Just kidding. Okay, so say you have a movie, and you want to share that movie with your friends, and let’s say your friends happen to be everyone on the planet, torrenting may be for you. When you torrent, you send out tiny bits of information around the world to millions of people, and when all those bits reach their computer, it makes a book, movie, song or what have you. You also get books, movies and tv shows the same way. Except, you never get it really from one person. When you torrent, you takes bits of information from hundreds of people at once, and once all of that…
