Author Interview: Blake Northcott

Website: www.blakenorthcott.com Twitter: @ComicBookGrrl Q: What is your genre? Why did you choose it? BN: My book ‘Vs. Reality’ is a comic book-inspired action-type story, so I guess you’d call it sci-fi/fantasy. I don’t really know how to classify it sometimes! It’s basically about a world where a few people randomly manifest superpowers, and they need to use an experimental drug to keep repeating the experience.

Nor do they focus on those case-cracking Inspectors, Morse, Lewis, and Lynley, brought to life on the small screen courtesy of BBC.Instead, I am using the word international to summarize the list of countries from which my sites have been accessed.  In alphabetical order, they are:         Australia         Canada         China         Czechoslovakia*         Ecuador*         Estonia*         Finland*         France         Germany         Hungary*         India         Indonesia         Ireland*        …

No reason to duplicate or to waste opportunities for the blog hosts.Then, I considered…
