Interview with Jason Pere, CALLING THE REAPER


Have you ever had an imaginary friend?
Not so much and imaginary friend as an imaginary evil doppelganger. His name was Humphry. He owned and operated a dine-in rib joint on the waterfront.

Do you have any phobias?
I’m a bit of a scaredy-cat. You could actually say that I am the bravest of cowards. My longest standing phobia was the dark. It was much more profound as a younger child. These days is something that makes me uncomfortable but I can tolerate. I struggle with pitch black, especially in a places that I am unfamiliar with, but I don’t need a night light anymore.

Do you listen to music when you're writing?
Some times. If I do I have to listen to something without lyrics. It is easy for me to get distracted if I have too many stimulus present when I am trying to write.

Do you ever read your stories out loud?
When I proof my work, reading aloud is the best way for me to pick up any errors in phrasing and sentence structure. As far as reading in general, I tend to stay quiet.

Tell us about your main character and who inspired him/her.
We, would you believe that “Calling the Reaper” has eight main characters? The book has a pirate, cowboy, Viking, samurai and several other iconic warrior types. I will admit that I tried to put in some personal elements to my cast, some much more than others though.


BLURB:
The time of the Unity has ended. Now, the realm of man is stranded between Paradise and Purgatory. The Valkyrie and Reaper battle over the fate of all who pass from the land of the living and into the afterlife.

Eight mortal spirits from vastly different worlds tread the same, inevitable path toward their last, crucial decision. Within them all exists the defining conflict every man must face—to look upon the end of their life with glory and honor, or to give credence to their baser longings, calling the Reaper to their own demise.

In this rich, harrowing tale of pride, deceit, honor, vengeance, and redemption, each individual must battle their inner turmoil, facing the sacrifices they have made before their unavoidable end in the land of the living.

But their last day in life is also their first day of death amidst the terrors of the underworld. Lord Master Death wants them all…and the real battle has only just begun.

NOTE: The book will be $0.99 during the tour
