Timothy B. Sagges - Best Seller - Author Interview

My thanks to Timothy B. Sagges for stopping by The Character Connection for an author interview during the blog tour for his book, Best Seller.

1. Who is your favorite character?
Abby. She makes only a cameo or two, but her life is examined more deeply in the current novel I'm writing.

2. Why is he/she your favorite?
She gives credence to the idea that everyone, whether they are a star or not, has a story.

3. How did you come to create him/her?
At first, she was just meant to be the embodiment of why we hate Ed, Rachel's ex-husband.

4. When did he/she first enter your mind?
Not until I realized I needed to put Richard's nephew in peril.

5. Where was he/she given life in the creative process?
She's actually had a life of her own before I began writing. She is a character in my current project that I wanted to connect to Best Seller.

6. What do like the most about him/her and what do you dislike the most about him/her?
In Best Seller she is a background player who barely makes and impression. It's not until my next novel, TAPE is released that we find out how complex and dangerous she has been nearly her entire life.

Thirty-five year old fiction writer, Richard Rossi would do just about anything to get his manuscript published. However, months of rejection and unanswered prayers have strained his capacity to hope. Alone in New York City, he teeters on the brink of alcoholism, as his hope erodes into desperation.

His prayers are finally answered when a simple misdirected piece of mail spawns a chance encounter with an extraordinary man, Seth Volos, Publisher. And while their unholy alliance thrusts Richard to the top of every Best Seller list in America, the horrifying outcome for the book's legions of fans is anything but a happy ending.

About the Author
Timothy B. Sagges

Fifty-year-old actor, director and playwright, Tim Sagges has been tormented by a series of recurring night terrors since 1967, long before there was a name for such a curse. It is only recently that he has found the courage to formulate some of these visions into works of literature. In an effort to purge himself of the unrelenting horror of his dreams, he has created Best Seller, the first in a series of nightmares exorcised from his mind and onto the page.

He is currently the owner of Eye Candy Vision in Philadelphia.
