Interview and Giveaway With Author David Beem

Q: Who are you, and why should readers read the rest of this interview?

Hang on a sec.  I got some pieces of my brain all over here . . . just got to get them all picked up.   Just get them stuffed back in here . . . there we go.  See?  My book is so freakin’ mind-blowingly awesome, you’ve got to be careful when you start talking about it.  Never know what’s going to happen.  So.  What was your question?
Q: Tell us a little about the work you are here promoting.
Abyss of Chaos, a cool-action-adventure-shit-your-pants-supernatural –thriller about the Ark of the Covenant, some turrurists, and a whole lot of restless souls in netherspace.  I’ve got it on good authority that the cool will rub off on you just by owning it.  Don’t even have to read it.
Q: As a writer, do you have plans for world domination, or do you have a day job as well?
No, no.  Just world domination.
Q: Self-published, traditional, indie or part of an indie collective? If not yet published, what are you doing to make it happen?

Self-published and plugged into two Indie collectives: Escapistpress and Novel Publicity.
Q: How do you handle bad reviews? If you haven't had one...would you be willing to take part in a social experiment? Basically? Would you grant me permission to trash your writing, just to see if you cry? 
They’ll come for sure.  And when they do, I’ll be strong.  I’ll be strong hiding behind a bottle of Jack with my liver encased in an iron box.  But sure, trash away Larry.
Q: Are you nervous yet and do you prefer white or wheat bread?
Not nervous, and wheat bread all the way baby.
Q: Do you blog? If so, don't you wish you were as cool a blogger as I?
Yes, and yes.  I’m very jealous of your cool.
Q: What is your favorite creature, monster, or fantasy based thing you write about?

Ark of the Covenant.  Ancient cosmic mysteries.  Melting faces.  
Q: Are you planning to give something away (if not, good luck getting anyone to read this thing) and if so, what are your demands for winning (I assume, your book because why else would you stop by?)

Sure.  I kill off one of my MCs.  If you’ve read John Knowles, you’ll know which one by his name.
Q: Any advice for aspiring writers?
Honor your work by giving yourself the space to succeed.
Q: Tick off a few indie authors you look up to.

I think I may have just done it by presuming to give advice.

Q: Are you, or are you not a douche bag? Heh, you don't have to answer that. That's just for my enjoyment.
What answer will sell more books?
Q:  Sell your book, right now, to your host without once mentioning your book, blog or twitter handle.
See the answer to Question No. 8, then add the words TOTALLY FREAKIN’ AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Q: Alright, where can readers find you on the web?
