Interview with G.B. Gabbler

What motivated you to become an indie author?
The fact that main publishers thought we were weird. Because we are. Let's be honest, no one else is going to take as big a chance on B.L.A. as I am.
What do your fans mean to you?
We have fans?
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Having another reader "get" it and what I'm trying to do with B.L.A.'s story. It's a fantastic story and I want others to see that it's not so crazy as it sounds.
What are you working on next?
The second in the Circo del Herrero series, called THE PRE-PROGRAMMING. It's in edits now. B.L.A. is working on the third volume now, title TBA.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Polishing up our CIRCO blog (which I maintain and B.L.A. contributes to), watching TV shows (see our "Gabbler Recommends" tag on the blog!), and reading (sooo much reading).
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind the latest book picks up right where THE AUTOMATION left off. Without dishing out spoilers, we finally get to meet the last of the nine Masters only mentioned in the previous book, there's a lot more of Vulcan and his tinkering about with the Masters' lives, and there's a TON more of Odissa. Where Odys was, arguably, the main focal point of Volume 1, Odissa will be the main point in Volume 2. Which is good because, if my footnotes didn't give it away, I never really liked Odys Odelyn that much.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Coffee. And the need to promote a story that is just as much about me as it is about fictional characters. Or maybe they're not so fictional. Sometimes I wonder if I'm just as fictitious...
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I read a lot of book blogs and websites that review books. As a book reviewer myself (here and there, under another name), it isn't hard for me to discover books. There's so many books I want to read but don't the time for. If it's a book I MUST read, it doesn't matter the format. I'll get it anyway I can.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Oh, god, yes! Let's not talk about that.
What is your writing process?
I'm much more of a "give me something to respond to" kind of writer. Thus the need for me being "The Editor."

Odys (no, not short for Odysseus, thank you) finds his hermetic lifestyle falling apart after a stranger commits suicide to free his soul-attached Automaton slave. The humanoid Automaton uses Odys’s soul to “reactivate” herself.
