Interview with Brian Woods and Roy C. Booth!!

Recently I had the honor of reading and reviewing Brian Wood's and Roy C. Booth's novella Davi, the first in a series called Tales of Suruale. You can read my review of this novella here. I also have the honor of interviewing them both, read on for more!


This first set of questions is with Brian Woods.

HP: How did you come up with the idea of Davi and the world he lives in?

Brian Woods: My original story I came up with was about David, Davi's son. The merits that Davi had accomplished were so often mentioned in the story of David that Roy suggested we go backwards and start with Davi as the first introduction to the world of Suruale. The world idea came to me after thinking about several writers and how it seems the worlds they create give way to more stories such as Middle Earth and Alagasia.


HP: Which came first, the idea of writing the novella or the character's story?

BW: I'll have to reply that thinking back, the character was the first focus and the idea of the novella came second.


HP: Brian, this according to your Goodreads is your first published novella. Is this the first you have written or just the first to be published?

BW: I have several published poems and newspaper articles and have been on Tallahassee news programs reciting poetry. As far as serious published literary works, this is the first of many to come.

HP: Did you enjoy writing with Roy C. Booth? How did you start writing?

BW: Writing with Roy at first was difficult because he is an honest critic. He doesn't hold back. But after I realized I was learning from him, it became a lot easier. Our method is simple as far as writing together. He will give me a topic and a few ideas, then I will pump out several thousand words and then he will work his magic and hand me back an awesome story that seems he wove it with a magic wand, like Davi.

HP: How did you and Roy begin writing the book Davi? Did one of you present the idea to the other?

BW: I presented my idea of the Suruale series and he thought my story was great but my writing needed a serious amount of improvement. So we began by sending the files back and forth, I would write something and he would make it better.

HP: Do you have plans for a second book in this series any time soon?

BW: The outlines have been written for 6 more books in this series and the next book already has several chapters in process. I would estimate the 2nd book will be available on Kindle before 2012.

HP: What is your favorite part of the book?

BW: Without giving away too much for people that haven't read it; I would say my favorite part was the court scene where Rugath vouched for Davi.

HP: What was the hardest part of writing Davi?

BW: The fact that I personally read it for mistakes over 100 times. It became a job then.

HP: Now that it is written and published is there anything you wish you had written differently in the book?

BW: There were three scenes I would have extended based on reviewer comments all stating they wanted more. Other than that, I am very happy with Davi.

HP: What books have most influenced your life most?

BW: Catcher in the Rye and Dune

HP: Is there a author that may have inspired you to write?

BW: I'd say that R.A. Salvatore was a serious inspiration.

HP: Do you think the Tales of Suruale books might get longer as the series goes on?

BW: Davi was a teaser with 24,000 words. I am hoping that book two in the series is about 50,000 words, book three in the upwards of 75,000 and then I would assume we will keep the rest between 70,000 and 100,000 words.

HP: Are you working on anything currently? If so is it something you could you share us?

BW: The Suruale Series is a constant project for me. I also have been working on a Chick Lit book named Traylein; a dragon slayer book that might be a two book collection or possible just a large single book. There is a sword and sorcery book I have played with and then just a short story here and there trying to hone my skill as a writer.

HP: Is there anything you would like to say to your readers and future readers?

BW: Look forward for the Suruale Series getting better and better.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

This second set is with Roy C Booth.

HP: Roy, you have written five books altogether can you tell us which was your favorite to write?

Roy C. Booth: THREE ZOMBIES AND A DEMON (Stygian Press), a collection of humorous one-act plays that I adapted from select stories from NECROTIC TISSUE magazine.  I've seen two of the plays from it performed already and some of the plays have won some awards. (That's my other sideline, playwrighting, and I just found out that I am having my 54th play published not too long ago and that I am nearing my 700th known play production worldwide, too.)  Other than that, I really don't have any favorites -- each and every project stands and exists on its own merits.

HP: Do you have plans for a second book in this series any time soon?

RCB: Yes, but we're paying attention to what the readers comment on, so our future outlines are very organic in that sense.

HP: What is your favorite part of the book?

RCB: The point where Davi fully realizes that he is indeed the master of his own fate and by his own merits has he been accepted.

HP: What was the hardest part of writing Davi?

RCB: Waiting for Brian to get back to me sometimes.  I work very quickly.

HP: Now that it is written and published is there anything you wish you had written differently in the book?

RCB: On my end, not really. I usually don't dwell on past finished projects since I'm too busy trying to raise yet another "child" to prepare for a life out on their own, so to speak.

HP: What books have most influenced your life most?

RCB: The Ace CONAN series from the 1970's, Henrik Ibsen's PEER GYNT, comic books, and a slew of others.

HP: Is there a author that may have inspired you to write?

RCB: Robert E. Howard, Poul Anderson, Gordon R. Dickson, Roy Thomas, and Stan Lee come the most readily to mind at present.

HP: Do you think the Tales of Suruale books might get longer as the series goes on?

RCB: Definitely, but we do have some novella length possibilities looming on the horizon depending upon if our readers wish to know more about certain characters...

HP: Are you working on anything currently? If so is it something you could you share us?

RCB: I'm usually literally working on a dozen projects at once -- more books, more plays, the odd screenplay or two.  For example, I recently completed and sent in the adaptation screenplay for ATLANTA NIGHTS and completed a new science fiction play with William F. Wu, lots of diverse and exciting work going on.  Folks are more than welcome to follow what I am doing on FaceBook.

HP: Is there anything you would like to say to your readers and future readers?

RCB: Hope you enjoy the world of Suruale as much as Brian and I have done putting it all together for you! It's going to be a long and exciting journey!
Roy C. Booth
