Attikus Absconder


My name is Attikus Absconder and i'm an insane, out of his mind artist and writer. I have always been an artist and creative type but my true passion is writing.

Predominately I love to write fiction, any type of fiction! I just released my first book and it's a doozie.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I ever read Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray. I loved how twisted an interesting the book was and it sparked my interest in reading.
How do you approach cover design?
I approach my covers in a more unorthodox way. My other passion is painting and before I even start writing I paint something that reflects the story rattling around in my head. Most people will go to a designer or use a template that works best for their reader's viewing pleasure, but i'm a bit more selfish in that I want my book covers to be more personal to myself and to the stories i'm writing.

Smashwords book reviews by Attikus Absconder

  • The Obsession: An O.U.R.S. Chronicler Defiant Tale on Oct. 27, 2015

    The Obsession is an awesome little short story. It was funny, chalked full of drama, mystery and had a great surprise towards the end. I thought it was pretty well written and I can’t wait to see what else this author has in store.
