Smashwords Interview

What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Guilting my mom into buying her own copy.
I'm confused - are you for or against smoking pot?
I have a love/hate relationship with it but on the whole, I'm on the pro side. That doesn't mean I want my dentist or financial adviser to nip out for a bowl in the middle of my appointment but if it gets you through the day, doesn't harm others and stops you from asking me for change, then I'm okay with it.

Smashwords book reviews by Jay Royston

  • High Water on Oct. 25, 2014

    First time reading/reviewing a zombie-themed book. That said, I liked High Water. It has shades of Resident Evil and a good hypothesis of the origins of a zombie virus. The action sequences are amazingly well-written - it's obvious the author knows his martial arts moves and philosophy. He also knows his science in explaining the origins of the virus but at times it is over my head and stalls the action. Decent introduction of the 3 main characters, not very much cannabis consumption as I might have expected but it's a short teaser intro to Book 2. In the movies, I think this would be considered 'Act 1'. I know it's already written but if the author were to edit I'd suggest moving the science into the 2nd book or dumbing it down significantly and keeping the B story more open-ended. It's a good start to something bigger. If possible, I'd give it 3.5/5.
