5 Minute Monday: RJ Palmer

RJ PalmerRJ Palmer has an overactive imagination and believes that she lives vicariously through characters of her own creation. She began writing Birthright one winter’s day out of boredom and has only now, 8 years later, brought it out for the world to read. She joins us today for a quick interview!

Describe yourself in one tweet (140 characters).

RJP: Writing is a marketable skill and I can prove it!

Fill in the blank: readers who hate ________ will love Birthright — and explain your choice.

BirthrightRJP: Hate normalcy — because it is so far apart from what is considered normalcy.

Tell us about Birthright. Where did the idea come from?

RJP: Birthright is about a step up the evolutionary chain and I got the idea from sheer unadulterated boredom and the youthful desire for world domination.

Why did you choose the indie publishing route, and how have you found it thus far?

RJP: I chose indie publishing because I find traditional publishing to be stuffy and elitist where the opinions of the few affect the exposure of the many. Indie publishing is more open minded and lucrative with authors seemingly more accessible and willing to help each other.

What future projects can we expect from you?

RJP: I am currently working on two projects: Sins of The Father, a paranormal novel, and Chronicles Of Faith: Discovery, the first in a science fiction space opera.

Intrigued? Head over to RJ Palmer’s site, or check out Birthright, on sale for $0.99 on Smashwords or Amazon.

    These 5 minute speed interviews are pretty cool. Great idea. There was just enough information about the author to get me interested. Can’t wait to read more.

      Thanks! I often find that a lot of author interviews these days are very long, and require a considerable time commitment to read. (Or perhaps I’m simply lazy!) So I figured I’d aim for the opposite end of the spectrum. :-)

    Thanks so much for the questions and yes the small interview was fun and is perfect for a quick snapshot of a potential aythor to a potential reader. BTW readers if you get a chance check out A.M. Harte’s book “Hungry For You” as I am sure it will delight your zombie bone.
