Jack Eason on Come In, Sit Down, Tell us About...


For you that are new, please read our intro now printed in Blue - for our returning guest feel free to jump to the text in black:
This blog is a meeting place for authors and others in the arts .... each week as others are directed to our door or just stumble on by, they come and leave  information about themselves - telling about their new books or drawings or photos or to tell us about their new blogs. ****PLEASE be sure your comments are appearing on the latest most timely blog insuring your inclusion in the sending off to Google plus land at the end of the week.*****


Here is the link to Gwen’s site: http://indieauthornetwork.weebly.com/ , a site which I am closely affiliated. 

As I am wont to say {as does Facebook}, our site is free to comment and share and always will be free.  This is a great site to join and to become interactive with guest blogging.  It gives you a chance to step out of your box and be whatever you  wish.


Another blog that I have a close tie is CRYPTO and CO.  Please pop over and check out all their pages.


I have been off doing business and my blogging, unfortunately, falls by the wayside.  There is so much news to tell and swamping tends to cross eyes and brain fog off... so only a few links on today's news.


If we thought last month was busy, this month got off to a plunge into new adventures of  editing, writing, publishing, promoting, and social interaction.

The Rain Cloud's Gift written for Children's Charities by our group The Peacock Writers' is on it's way to the NYC BOOK FAIR at the JACOB JAVIT'S CONVENTION CENTER.   No mass books or signing, just books displayed for industry professionals, stars, editors, publicists, publishers, and acquisition teams for the movie industry.  Gwenna D'Young has an Angel who was so impressed with the book, and has given us the money and backing to have the book appear in the line up.  We are also in the process of releasing a full, pictures included, limited edition.

Our next book in this series will celebrate the fall season and we are recruiting writers {1 each} from  India, Japan, and Philippines - America has Halloween and Thanksgiving, Great Britain has Guy Fawkes - we would like stories that reflect fall traditions or holidays for these other cultures as well.  The stories would remain the sole property of the author and their use as a donation would only occur for the book collection for Children's Charities. The story is to be written on a level where a child could either read it or have it read to them - our age goal for readers is 0 through 12.  Please contact me at  https://www.facebook.com/paula.shene  if interested in being considered.


Friday, June 1 2012:


I first met Jack Easton when submitting an article for Angie’s Diary, a worldwide On Line Magazine.  Jack stopped by to welcome me to the site and share that he too started publishing at the age of sixty-two.  He is succinct, tongue in cheek in his interview answers but not so in his prose.   Do make particular note of his answer on who will enjoy his books.  I enjoy his articles and his books ~

What inspired you to write?

I’m not really sure; it was so long ago now.

Do you have anyone you show manuscripts to and get advice from or are you a loner doing it all yourself?

Yes – my main beta-reader and critic is Derek Haines, a fellow writer and ANZAC who lives in Switzerland.

What genre do you normally write in?

Mainly science fiction; but now I’m putting the finishing touches to an anthology of goblin tales.

Do you ever base your characters on people you know?

No, never. I far prefer to dream a character up from scratch.

What advice would you give to someone who was just starting off in writing?

Be prepared for anguish, heartache, and rejection, not forgetting the never ending learning curve we all go through. Oh I almost forgot – also be prepared for the long haul and little money.

Do your stories tend to have morals, or special messages, included within them?

No, is the answer.

This question was posed by a fellow author, and I loved it so much I decided to throw it into the mix ~

Oh no! One of your characters has escaped. Luckily, I have caught them! I will interrogate them with the help of a lie detector.

Welcome! Take a seat, make yourself comfortable. You will be returning to your book once this is over. What's your name, where are you from and what is your role in the book?

My name ith Bejuthth and I live with Glob and hith brotherth in an oak tree in the Thouthern Wood in Goblindom. Pleathe don’t make fun of me becauthe I lithp. I am very important to Glob and his brotherth, because I act as their eyeth from on high – rarrk!

Tell us why we would enjoy reading your books?

That’s a tricky one to answer. If, and I do say if, you enjoy being challenged by a book, then my sci-fi tales are for you. However, if you are a fan of easy reading where you can park your brain in neutral for a couple of hours, then my sci-fi books are definitely not what you should be reading.

My anthology, however, is a different story. “Globular Van der Graff’s Goblin Tales for Adults” is a collection of thirty sequential, short stories written around five goblins and their friends in an imaginary land called Goblindom. Hopefully I will be able to publish it very soon. It’s currently being beta-read by Derek and one other.
