Othello and Zombies Free Book and More

 

While we wait to find out the fate of Time Burrito, I wanted to thank everyone via the offer of a free kindle book. What better book to offer for free than Othello and Zombies? They were written at almost the exact same time. I was barely on the first act of Othello and Zombies when the plot of a man traveling through time for the perfect burrito just popped into my head (or maybe I was hungry). So I switched off writing them with only a minor break to release Othello and Zombies. Please enjoy the free copy by clicking here, and also while you are there, check out the audiobook of Othello and Zombies. It’s read by Michael Burnette, the fantastic narrator who produced Time Agency. What’s even better is that you can get the Othello and Zombies audiobook for free too by signing up for a free trial of Audible. That’s a whole lotta free! Enjoy and thank you again.

Rumors fly around campus that they are chupacabra ground up with rat. Pete needs a change, and it comes in the form of a physics experiment gone awry.

Author Spotlight – Me!

I’m assuming that if you’re on my blog you probably wanted to see how I answered the questions too. If you missed the other authors please go back and check them out!

Bio: Aaron Frale co-wrote a no-budget comedy flick called Hamlet the Vampire Slayer. His first novel is Playlist of the Ancient Dead. The University of New Mexico gave him a MFA in Dramatic Writing. He also screams and plays guitar for the prog/metal band Spiral. He lives with his wife Felicia, two cats, and a small dog who thinks he’s a large dog in Columbia Heights, MN.

Questions:

What’s the one piece of advice you’d give someone wanting to write?

Aaron: Patience. It takes time to write a good story and takes time to build an audience.

How do you approach your stories; do you plan everything out before starting, or are you more a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants kind of a person?

Aaron: I rarely plan. I just write and see what happens.

Of all your characters, do you have a favorite?

Aaron: I have a soft some for wierdos with irreverent humor.

How long did it take you to write your most recent book(s)?

Aaron: It takes about six months to a year depending on my life outside of writing.

What motivated you to write your novel?

Aaron: I used to write screenplays and I realized that a lot of things had to fall into place to get a movie I wrote on the screen. Whereas books, I could do it myself.

Name three favorite authors and why they impress you.

Aaron: Douglas Adams – For pioneering comedy science fiction

Joss Whedon – For pioneering horror comedy

Neil Gaimen – For being an awesome human being

Would you rather set your story in a place and time you are familiar with, or would you rather research a totally different setting?

Aaron: I like making up my own settings.

Do you have any little writing rituals or quirks? E.g. an object you have to have on your desk, a particular drink or snack.

Aaron: Not really. I wish I had more time to do it.

How do you own experiences influence what you write?

Aaron: Some of the humorous stories in the character’s backgrounds have really happened. My first book had a talking dog character that was an ongoing anthropomorphizing joke my and I have about our dog.

If you were a ninja with a vendetta to whom would it be? OR If you had to throw something into mount Doom to save the world, what would it be? OR If you had a group of celebrities to plan the perfect heist who would they be and what would you be after? (If you couldn’t already tell, these were the questions I added to the pot 🙂 )

Aaron: As a ninja, I would strike at the heart of climate change deniers. I would through income inequality into Mount Doom and now that the world is fixed, I would round up the cast of Star Trek Voyager to raid the prop room of Star Trek Discovery.

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Aaron: I work on something different. It helps to have several going at once.

What is your favorite part of the writing process?

Aaron: First draft. It’s always the most fun.

If you were stranded on a deserted island with only one book, what would it be? (Ominbuses,  complete works, and how to books are forbidden!) (Laura)

Aaron: Hitchhiker’s Guide (because you’ll need the towel).
