Interview & Giveaway - A. Jacob Sweeny

Happy Friday!!!

Today I have the pleasure of hosting my frist stop on the Romacing Your Dark Side Tour!

So everyone welcome A. Jacob Sweeny, author of Pulse of Heroes!


1. When did you start writing?
I started writing poetry as a young teenager, although I have been telling stories to others since before that.

2. If you could pick any character from any book as your sidekick, who would it be?
Being infatuated with Elliot, of course should be the obvious answer, however Elliot has a lot of who I am, built within his character. He is an Aries to a T. I am not sure if Aries men and get along with Aries women. We are both on the same crusades. When will we have to see one another? Although we are very loyal… so who knows. I adore Haneul and Kahl too.

3. What was your biggest inspiration while writing Pulse of Heroes?
The classical Hero journey intertwined with a believable coming of age story of an average girl.

4. Which actor would you see playing the hero/heroine in your book?
I haven't thought about that one. I have seen models that have some elements from Elliot, or Michelle but not the whole face nor persona. I think I'll pass this one for now.

5. How many books do you see in the series?
The Pulse series is a trilogy and Pulse of Heroes is the first novel in the long saga. The 2nd installment will be released on Halloween! Then just one more left.
