Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I enjoy taking our world, our sick and twisted world, and shaping it into something the readers would find seemingly familiar, yet something new and otherworldly all the same. I love playing with contemporary concepts, often inserting allusions to people, places and events, whether they're on TV or just around the corner. I believe people need to be told of what's happening around them, things that people find exasperating or plainly irrelevant, and the best way to achieve this is to weave an interesting tale around an otherwise dull setting.
What are you working on next?
My next book is a blend of fantasy, religious satire, heavy on mythology and bits of humor along the way. I have always loved the stories I read as a child, and I hope to explore them in my next book, as contrast to my previous work which made use of science fiction elements. With fantasy, you don't really need to have an explanation for the things happening, like say, a magic spell or someone changing to a werewolf. Indeed there is an immediate tendency to suspend one's disbelief, and I find that very liberating.

Smashwords book reviews by Justin Villanueva

    Not epic, but a good read nonetheless. Instead of one major conflict or arc, the story drags on several mini arcs and doesn't really build up into anything big or climatic. But still, I honestly loved this book. Reading it is so relaxing and actually makes me imagine if such a technology would ever become available. I finished it in 2 days. My only concern is the pacing might be a little too quick. Some scenes may have been better if they were more detailed instead of just summarizing along. But hey, it's anyone's style so it's still good. :)
