Interview with John R. Bolton

What is your e-reading device of choice?
iPad
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I'm just starting my e-book life, so I'll have to get back to this question when I have more experience.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Sarnia, Ontario, but feel my time at college in London, Ontario had more of an influence on who I am. Did my time there influence my writing? I don't think so.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing a few years back. It took time to get the short story finished (The Underground), but I enjoyed the creative process.
What's the story behind your latest book?
John, James, Gary and Rory of The Underground are a typical rock band... technically talented, but doomed to retirement and obscurity. That is until their lives are changed forever in September of 2012 by a passing acquaintance in rural America.

In 'The Underground' meet The Beatles at The Cavern Club and relive the release of some of the greatest music ever written. Be with The Underground at The Ed Sullivan Theatre where history is written and popular music changes forever. Find out how, in only two years, four Americans influenced the entire world and left the planet pondering one of the most baffling disappearances and mysteries.

It's a story about the most important group of all time... The Underground... or as they are known today, ‘The World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band’.

'The Underground' is a story about history, but you may not remember it quite this way.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I had a story I wanted to tell.
What do you hope to accomplish with your short story 'The Underground'?
A major motion picture. I really think this idea would be a fun thing to see on screen. I have an idea of someone who might like the story... Tom Hanks... are you listening?
What do you read for pleasure?
I love reading about history. I am a cycling nut, so I have read a number of books about cycling and the Tour de France. I also love reading about military history.
