What is a blog hop? Basically, it’s a way for readers to find authors new to them.  On this stop on the blog hop you'll find a bit of information on me, my debut novella and my upcoming story in an anthology for Moon Rose Publishing plus a link to another author you can discover!

Thanks to fellow author, Patrick Jones, for inviting me to participate in this event.  Visit his blog to learn more about Patrick and his work.  

In this blog hop, my fellow authors and I, in our respective blogs, have answered ten questions about our book or work-in--progress (giving you a sneak peek).  We've also included some behind-the-scenes information about how and why we write what we write--the characters, inspirations, plotting and other choices we make. I hope you enjoy it!

Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts and questions. Hello there, please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Hunter S. Jones, author and music blogger from Atlanta, Georgia, USA and I am Red Hot Right Now!

1: What is the title of your book?

Fables of the Reconstruction

2: Where did the idea come from for the book?

The novella developed from a series of dreams followed by quite a bit of research into Haitian and Creole Voodoo, and research into French Colonial and English Victorian cultures.

3. What genre does your book come under?

Fables of the Reconstruction is on Amazon as Horror/Supernatural/Occult. It has a mature content warning as well.

4: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

That is just a great question. I'm really not certain what the answer is. Probably, a Charlize Theron type as Mary Montague. Charlize just plays cold blooded like no other actress. Dita von Teese as Polly Poppet...George Wilson of the Buffalo Bills would be amazing as Jean Paul Rouselle. Yes, I know he's an athlete but he's been in a few Mary J. Blige vids. He's also one of my neighbors. I assure you a couple of elevator rides to the 33rd floor with him can really spark a girl's creativity.  (Please forgive me George!)Although, I can neither confirm nor deny that Jean Paul is based on George Wilson. Pierre von Minzle? I once thought Jack White, but I'm just not ready to say.

5: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Fables of the Reconstruction is the story of Pierre von Minzle, a Belgian pimp who possesses a magic powder while living in Victorian London's Whitechapel District with his companion, Mary Montague. 

6: Is your book self-published, published by an independent publisher, or represented by an agency?

It's self-published.

7: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

The first draft before edits took about 6 weeks. That's just the writing part. The research took much longer.

8: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I really don't know the answer to this question. It's a bizarre little book.

9: Who or what inspired you to write this book?

Please refer back to question 2...

10: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? What is your next release?

Will there be a Book 2 of Fables? Keep in touch with me to find out. 

My next release on March 21st is through Moon Rose Publishing. It's an anthology called A Celtic Tapestry. Eight Celtic Festivals, eight authors. The authors are Livia Ellis, Hunter S. Jones, Laura DeLuca, Elodie Parkes, Elle J Rossi, Miranda Stork, Carolyn Wolfe, Tara Wood Stogner. My story is the Yuletide story and it's called Magic in Memphis, a contemporary romance that features the love story of a Wiccan solitary practitioner who falls madly in love with an English businessman the first night they meet. 

You can find out more information and pre-order A Celtic Tapestry on their website.

Here's the link for the Red Hot Scottish crime writer Steve Christie who will be joining me by blogging, next Wednesday, March 13th. Be sure to bookmark and add his blog to your calendars for updates on WIPs and New Releases! Happy Writing and Reading!
