Indie Author Interview: E. E. Kellogg


Indie Author Interview with E. E. Kellogg - Author of the Literary Fiction / (Small Town) Romance Novel Full Circle.

E. E. Kellogg has been writing in one form or another since childhood, and professionally for over two decades.

Interview with E. E. Kellogg

Author E. E. Kellogg
Author E. E. Kellogg
Alan Kealey (Indie Author News): What is your (writing) background?
E. E. Kellogg: My parents were both writers, and I grew up with books everywhere. Writing was something you did, whether you wanted to make a profession of it or not. I wrote a little play about Eleanor of Aquitaine with my best friend when we were 12. Professionally, I guess it started when I was 18 and had my first office job - I rewrote some pretty badly written letters as I typed them, and soon everyone wanted me typing their letters. I've done writing and editing as part of any job since.

Who are your favorite writers, your favorite books, and who or what are your writing influences?
I love the sanity of Jane Austen, and the gentler satire of Angela Thirkell. Robertson Davies and A.S. Byatt are awesome - their abilty to juggle huge and complex worlds while writing pure golden prose is spectacular, though they have very different tenors as writers. All Austen's novels (except Mansfield Park), Davies' The Lyre of Orpheus, Murther and Walking Spirits (this was a big influence on the world of Full Circle), The Cunning Man. A.S. Byatt, my favorite so far is The Children's Book, which also influenced Full Circle. Mystery novels - old ones especially. I love Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe books.

"[...] beginning to introduce original characters, learning to write dialogue in difference voices, and gaining confidence"

When did you first know that you wanted to be a writer?
I had toyed with the idea for years, with no results. But I got involved with reading some excellent fan-fiction (my young writing mentor writes nothing but that), and had and impulse to write a little of my own. My husband, reading it, suggested I should write original material, but I knew I had work to do, and wrote fan-fiction for a while, beginning to introduce original characters, learning to write dialogue in difference voices, and gaining confidence.

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
That was another effort with my best friend (we're still best friends), a satire piece called Penny From Heaven. I'm not sure we finished it, though I know I still have it somewhere.

Tell us about your writing process. Do you have a writing routine?
I write mornings, mostly, in the early hours, though if inspiration strikes, I will write any time. I do a lot of musing, researching - it's amazing how much research it takes to write even a fairly contemporary novel about a setting I know well.

"Easiest is once I've started. Hardest is getting started."

What do you find easiest about writing? What the hardest?
Easiest is once I've started. Hardest is getting started.

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
That I have created and continue creating a world. That's what I've always loved about fiction, the imagined and realized worlds. Finding and writing my characters' individual voices. I love my people so much. They are so real to me.

E. E. , please tell us a little about your Literary Fiction/Romance Novel Full Circle.
Full Circle is a tale about a small-town in Maine and its people. Love - romantic, familial, friendly, communal. Different people growing, different sorts of thriving, different modes of adversity to overcome. Family and families are central, heritage. Traditions, holidays. And food. Definitely food.

Full Circle (E. E. Kellogg)
Click to Read an Excerpt

What inspired you to write the book?
My best friend (yes, the same one, 50 years later) suggested I try my hand at a mystery series. I liked the idea, and began researching the writing of mysteries. Got my characters outlined, backstories. And I found I had no taste for mystery-writing, though I enjoy reading them. So I just wrote the story of the people and their relationships. And there is Full Circle. The story continues with follow-up novels.

Who do you see as your target audience?
I guess the book appeals more often to women than to men, though a good number of men have enjoyed it. It seems to appeal to both small-town and city dwellers, and a variety of ages.

"[...] a variety of appealing but flawed human beings as characters"

What makes your book special?
I think it's a combination of good and accessible writing, a variety of appealing but flawed human beings as characters, and a pretty classic, universal story of circumstance-crossed love.

How would you describe the success of your self-published books so far?
Well, readers love them, so that is success. Getting the word out so people know about them is the hard part.

"Make a point of writing. And let yourself write badly - you can fix it later."

Can you give some advice for other Authors regarding the writing process?
If you want to write, write. Don't put it off until you've "time," or until "X" gets done. I know a lot of people who have told me for years and years they want to write, and have produced nothing, because it always gets put on the back-burner. Make a point of writing. And let yourself write badly - you can fix it later.

Are you working on another book project? Can you tell us a little about it?
I am currently working on Root and Branch, the third novel in the Season's Turn series, of which Full Circle is the first. The second is Crossroads. They take us further down the roads of my people, as life moves on.

Where do you see the book market in 5 or 10 years? Will there be only eBooks and will book stores disappear like record stores disappeared?
I don't believe physical books will die. There's something about holding a book in one's hands, turning the pages, smelling paper. I hope bookstores won't disappear, but people still listen to LPs, though record stores are few.

What is your e-reading device of choice?
Either my PC or tablet - the latter is what I use to edit my own writing when I'm away from my house.

"I take care of my almost-18-year-old do [...]"

Do you write full-time or do you have a day job? When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have a part-time job (it entails a lot of writing). I take care of my almost-18-year-old dog, stay in touch with friends, cook, read a lot, and watch films.

Full Circle (E. E. Kellogg)
Click to Read an Excerpt
When Seth Greenlaw ’s father dies, the 17-year-old needs all his determination to keep his brilliant 12-year-old brother out of foster care, and see him into college. Good thing he has plenty of it.

Gwen Hardie, the headstrong, red-haired girl next door, cooks like nobody’s business, and calls Seth her favorite ‘brother.’ Seth’s feelings for her are not brotherly, but what he wants for himself has to go on the back burner, and Gwen is sent to college in Boston. There, she finds the new life – and the opportunities – her parents want for her.

But tragedy strikes, and, heartsick and homesick, Gwen returns to Haven Point. Will Seth find the words to tell her how passionately he’s always loved her? He’s used to keeping his secret. If he does, can Gwen come to see him as something more than her best-beloved brother?

Or will the revelation wreck the closeness they both depend on?

- "A spectacular read! Ms. Kellogg’s gift for prose has long been known in her essays, and here she unleashes these gifts in creating characters and places about which the reader wants to know more and more. Her characters draw you into their lives and her depictions of life in rural Downeast Maine are authentic, compelling and come from the heart of a Mainer. I’m not usually a reader of romance novels, a la Austen, but 'Full Circle' kept me wanting more. Gorgeously written and perfectly paced." - Reader Review

First day of senior year and Tia West just ran over a hot guy in the high school parking lot. In her defense, she’s a little preoccupied as the caretaker of five younger siblings, one dog, one cat, facing a mountain of bills and determined to keep her family together. The eternal optimist, she just needs to try harder, be better, take a deep breath and definitely shouldn’t bring home another stray dog or an angry, scary and scarred boy who is obviously in desperate need of a hug.

After a stint in juvie, Taz is back for senior year, and every minute is a struggle. His only defense is silence.

Keeping quiet avoids the slaps, hits, threats and is as close to safe as he can manage. Until Tia West convinces him of possibilities he never knew existed. She fills every dark, empty space with a lightness he’s never experienced before, and the only way to keep her is by speaking up for himself. But his secrets are the kind that devastate and destroy.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "The history buff in me enjoyed the historically accurate details intricately woven in and out throughout the story, while the romantic in me couldn't wait to see how Cassie would handle the next run-in with Carrington.

A Tracker's Tale (Karen Avizur)

Featured Indie Book on Indie Author News: Urban Fantasy Novel A Tracker's Tale by Karen Avizur.

A Tracker's Tale is about A Psychic FBI agent and her new probie work supernatural cases in Los Angeles. Welcome to the strange and perilous world of Katherine Colebrook: FBI special agent, Los Angeles… Trackers Division.

The Book has been self-published via Amazon and is available as eBook and Paperback - 275 pages - released in March 2018.



About the Book

In Katherine’s world, werewolves, vampires, pĂșcas, and other parasapien species – forced for centuries by human fear and prejudice to live at the fringes of society – have finally come out of hiding to demand their rightful place alongside us. Within the FBI’s unit that handles parasapien cases, the Trackers division, Katherine Colebrook is one of the best. Her psychic abilities made her a natural, allowing her to move between the parasapien and human worlds in ways that no other agent could. But Katherine’s calling hasn’t come without struggle and losses along the way.

As a single mother, she must contend with her teenage daughter, Alexandra, who not only shares Katherine’s psychic abilities, but seems determined to follow the same dangerous path as her mother. And so, when Katherine’s latest assignment threatens to bring that danger too close home, she finds herself faced with the toughest challenge of her career:

Can she protect her daughter’s life, while battling a ruthless adversary who’ll stop at nothing to destroy her?

A Tracker's Tale (Karen Avizur)
Click to Read an Excerpt

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "Katherine is a likable character. Her personality made it easy to connect with her. Plus, she's human and has a lot of traits that make her a hero. Her partner is interesting to follow as well. He makes some of the crappy and worse situations seem like typical police work. Katherine's daughter is also a psychic just like her mom which adds to this paranormal plot.
Karen Avizur has created a new series that I would recommend to all. Suspense, danger, and mystery all wrapped up in one great package. Plus, the mother-daughter bond is fun to read. A dash of humor, politics, and crime are also found inside this book. Plenty of action that kept me reading.[...]"
- Danielle Urban

- "Avizur has created an intriguing character in Katherine Colbrooke. This book is a good introduction to the alternate universe that Colbrooke inhabits. We get to see her special skills and special relationship with her daughter (who I can't wait to read more about in future books!). This will be a great adventure that you won't want to put down." - J. Prohaska

- "Excellent, very interesting and well written book!" - Ed in NY (amazon)

- "I have read this book and enjoyed it. I think if you read it you will enjoy it too. It reminds me of the Dresden Files, but if Dresden were a lady. A lady psychic with a teenage daughter. [...]" - Washer (Amazon)

Karen Avizur grew up on Long Island, New York and ended up in Orlando, Florida, with stops in Connecticut, West Virginia, and Los Angeles along the way.

She's been writing stories since she was twelve years old. In those early days, she discovered it was impossible to keep up with her thoughts by writing longhand, and ended up borrowing a 7-pound laptop from her dad, quickly honing her typing skills.

After graduating film school, Karen moved to Los Angeles, where she worked as a film editor for several years while also pursuing her writing. "I was taught that a film editor is really the final-draft screenwriter. It's true," she notes. "I'd written much of Trackers as separate short stories over the years, but being an editor helped me see how to weave those stories together into novel form."

Karen now lives in Florida with lazy dog Ginger and still keeps a hand in editing for special clients.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "This novel is compelling. I haven’t enjoyed fiction since I read “Flowers in the Attic” 30 years ago. It is fast-paced and the writing style makes you feel the stress of the Jessie’s world. You will want to carve out a big chunk of time to read this. The storytelling draws you in. You want to know more about Marta and Judith. You feel the intensity of Jessie’s passion" - Bridget Wilard

The Eighth Titan (Zach Jordan)
Featured Indie Book on Indie Author News: Epic Fantasy Novel The Eighth Titan by Zach Jordan.

The Eighth Titan is about an 18-year-old trying to save the world, it's about struggling to place allegiance properly, studying something you have no hope of understanding, and fighting to protect the fragility of life by crushing that very thing. Beyond all that, it's about a metaphysically dualistic world, moral ambiguity, and pontifications on the purpose in a life.

The Book has been self-published via Amazon and is available as eBook and Paperback - 903 pages - released in May 2020.



About the Book

Magic is quite unlike how the storybooks describe it—it’s cryptic, impenetrable, and has been illegal for over seven hundred years. And yet, the last of a dying race has prophesied this to be the only way to stop an ancient evil, that which was sealed away a millennium ago by seven titans: the Eighth, a nefarious being intent only on bending the realm to its cruel subjugation.

To make matters worse, the realm’s history is all but unknown. Information on the titans is scarce, and there exist no accounts describing how they sealed the Eighth originally. Not to mention, the magical ‘arts,’ taught in ancient tomes inherited across generations by the politicians of today, seem to raise questions more than answer them. Our young hero finds himself confused and disoriented, mentally taxed by his studies and a realm that appears more chaotic and violent with each passing day. Even those closest to his heart are transformed by the journey, forever marked by misdeeds committed and suffered through.

The Eighth Titan (Zach Jordan)

This is Jack’s story—it is a story of growing up, of a crumbling world direly needing strength, of love and hatred intertwined in passionate bonds, of the cyclical deaths and rebirths all find themselves within, of realizing how much must be sacrificed for what he fights to protect. It is his story, and it is everyone’s story.
