Douglas H. Plumb

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
The book is about what happens after electricity just stops working one day. But that is just the framework. Power Outage is a play on words. The power that gets "outaged" is political power due to the loss of communication and the economy. My book is about how the characters deal with society after a loss of centralized power. Its a political didactic filled with action and suspense. Its purpose is to re-aquaint the reader with Western consciousness, common sense, and law.
What is your writing process?
Design and plan story line carefully, over years. Write, re-write, edit, re-write, get beta reader feedback, re-edit. Re-write again, and again, and again. Get people to check for grammar. Last minute tweaks to sentences to make them sound smoother. Re-edit, re-edit, get more feedback. Re-edit.
