Nichespur is a bit of a wild minded rover from yet another space in time perhaps. He seeks wisdom in every experience, and yet professes to already be almost wise enough to know… that the experience maybe all you ever really get outta life. So he just keeps trying and highly recommends we all do the same.
He has no credentials or degrees to speak of, and is quite happy about that fact, not wanting to even appear to be the master of anything at all. He has however succeeded in climbing to the top of several career ladders (and then jumped off -- without a parachute I might quite painfully now add) including Computer Lab Administration, Computer Programming and Orthographic Photography.
I like to write books with vivid charaters that both entertain and inspire us all to take another look at life... with perhaps a brand new perspective on it all. For that is how we might find those new paradigms everyone is talking about...or at least a few more pennies to toss into our wishing wells or spend fending off all our other forms of strife.
What's the story behind your latest book?
We all now live in the age of Mis-information, as modern technology has evolved to allow anybody, including our own governments, to alter our previous perceptions of the truth, simply by creating a carefully re-designed new media event around them. Thereby making good seem bad, and bad something great for us all to now quite righteously and willfully participate in, with or without our truly conscious consent.
So I decided I'd turn the tables on them by reexamining all the ancient myths, present patriotic reasoning’s and modern scientific limits that now support them, in order to break the excessive amount of control some people now have over us. And thereby free us all, it is hoped. . Ergo, I give you Good and God playfully re-examined once again, but by a group of aliens this time, who may not be as strange as we like to think. Indeed they may have been the only true friends we have ever really had—in both the beginning and the end of All.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have always been astonished by how little an author gets percentage wise from the official publishers. This can be as little as 7% of the price of retail sales when you are starting out, maybe as high as 20-25% for the best known writers. This is ridiculous considering that it is the authors writing and often years of work which is actually being sold. So the major publishing houses are taking a major cut off everything we do - 90% in most cases - simply because they control the merchandising end of things. That control also allows them to censor or limit what can be read, based upon their opinions of what is or is not popular or worthy of being read. This has kept many new ideas out of the hands of man. And I really want to see that stopped. For all our sakes. So I recommend all new authors do the same. Of course this still requires that WE produce good, well edited work! So be honest with yourself as you do the work, and write with that purpose in mind
