Interview with J.M.D. Reid, Author of Mask Of Guilt

25 May 2021

What can you tell us about your new release, Mask Of Guilt?

Mask of Guilt is an epic fantasy novel about Lady Foonauri, an exiled noblewoman. Tired of her life as nothing more than a pretty bauble on the arm of a powerful man. Wanting something more, she gets it when a group of thieves needs her help for their latest caper.

But they’re not your ordinary group of thieves. They steal to protect the innocent. And a lot of people will die if they don’t succeed at their next crime.

Foonauri is thrust into a world of intrigue, betrayal, romance, adventure, and danger!

What books are currently on your night stand?

Well, on my kindle. I have Fiends of Nightmaria by Steven Erikson and an arc of Assassin (Darkblade 1) by Andy Peloquin

What advice would you give your teenage self?

Write more and play less video games. Get into the habit of writing every day.

If you had an extra hour each day, how would you spend it?

I’d want to say sleeping, but I would just use it to do another hour of writing. That’s 2500 more words that I could accomplish.

What makes your world go round? Why does it bring you joy?

Writing my stories brings me joy. I love getting them out of my head and sharing them to the world. Knowing that there are people out there that are entertained by them is a big thrill.

What scene from Mask Of Guilt was your favorite to write?

I would say Foonauri and Spinel going to a bar to celebrate Foonauri’s first success. It’s fun and shows the dangers of Spinel’s world view and how it highlights Foonauri’s own flaws. A way to shine a light on them and for Foonauri to have some growth.
