Interview Jeff Prebis…Sexy People next release…with Bitten Press LLC October 2014
· First why don't you tell us a little about yourself?
· I reside in southeastern Virginia. I’ve been writing for over twelve years. I’ve always had a passion for books, been an avid reader, and becoming an author was always my dream when I was young. It took me a long time to sit down and write my first novel. Once I started it, the words and the story were easy to put together. It was a natural process.
Newest release? The newest release will be my novel called “Sexy People.”
What can we expect from your stories, action, drama, romance, sex, blood and guts? A strange mix of horror, science fiction, humor, and erotica. Blood and guts also, of course
Has there been any other authors who have inspired your work or helped you out with your stories? The biggest inspiration for me as an author is Clive Barker. I read his work when I was young and was hooked.
What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful? Positive book reviews. Word of mouth is the best advertising. Express your passion for my work.
Do you have any tips for readers or advice for other writers trying to get published? Don’t give up. Don’t about rejection. Just do what you love to do.
Can you remember one of the first things you wrote? What makes it memorable? I remember writing the beginning of a haunted house novel when I was fourteen. It was like a movie inside my head. I just didn’t have the desire to finish it. For some reason, it sticks in my mind, and I may use the material at some point. The fact I didn’t finish it is memorable. I strive to finish everything I start writing.
Where do you gather most of the inspiration for your work? Just everyday life. It could be a new drug that is killing people on the streets? It could be something someone says. I have an idea I’m incorporating into a new novel from a product a company I used to work for sold.
Do you have any other interesting hobbies, pets or stories you would like to share? I’m always proud of my German shepherd. He’s getting old. But, he keeps fighting on through arthritis, hip displacement, and a recent ear infection. He’s a tough guy.
Favorite places to travel or visit? I would like to travel to Cebu, a province in the Philippines. I have a lot of people I worked with for a company, whom I have never met face to face. We communicated by phone or email. They described a wonderful place. I wrote about Cebu City in a short story called “Juggling With Hand Grenades.”
Jeff Prebis resides in Virginia. He is the author of the novels, The Debacle and A Trip Down Psychopath Lane, and the short story collection, Walking On Razor Blades: Stories Of Death, Blood, And Sex. Several of his short stories are available as eBooks. His spare time is spent with his German shepherd. He is feverishly working on his next novel.
