Interview with Marcus Abshire, Author of Dark Burn

12 Jan 2021

What can you tell us about your new release, Dark Burn?

Dark Burn is an action-packed adventure featuring a MC with a checkered past, riding the line between darkness and doing what’s right.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

I read constantly, for years I found a new author and read everything they wrote. One day I picked up a book from the library that was so bad I decided that I could do better. I wrote the first chapter of what is now REDEMPTION and sent it to my brother without any context. He thought it was something a famous author (I won’t name who) wrote, and I realized it wasn’t half bad.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

I don’t have a top 5. I have read so many books that it would be hard for me to pick just 5.

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

I’d have a successful Indie author on and ask them what was their secret to success.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

I love losing myself in the story. There are times when I stop writing a certain scene or chapter and it feels as if I have surfaced from a deep dive, as if I have been in a different world and am waking up.

What is a typical day like for you?

I work full time, so usually it’s getting up, getting my butt to work then afterwards, if there is any energy or time left in the day… I try to write.

What scene from Dark Burn was your favorite to write?

The big finale. I love the huge conclusions, usually I make sure they have a lot of explosions, fighting and magic involved!

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

No motto, I just try to be productive, try to look on the bright side of things. Life’s a garden…dig it.
