Today we are chatting to Zack Scott author of Four
Tell us something unexpected about yourself!
I can’t do one-handed pushups.
What kind of books do you write?
Suspense, satire, character-driven action-packed adventures that contain dark humor, fantasy and horror. Some romance.
One time I wrote a children’s story.
What inspired you to write?
When I was a kid I used to create stories for my GI Joe action figures. I’d give them character names and outline a plot for them to follow.
My imagination brought me to the keyboard.
What makes your writing stand out from the crowd?
What is the hardest part of writing – for you?
I used to have a hard time cutting parts out of my story. I tended to keep whatever I wrote down first. I learned rewriting is key to a successful story, but it can still be hard to let go.
Where do you like to write – what is your routine?
On my bed, on the couch, or outside while my french bulldog Riggins runs around.
What do you do when you are not writing – do you have a day job?
I work for a startup company. I’m also an attorney. Other than work, I like to watch sports (basketball, football, baseball, and now hockey) or TV with my loved ones. I’m a sucker for The Voice.
Do you work with an outline or just write?
Both. I like to just write, but sometimes I’ll sit around brainstorming and outlining for hours.
What advice would you have for other writers?
Keep writing. Even if you feel like the worst author ever, and even if other people make you feel that way, just keep writing.
How important is marketing and social media for you?
Connecting with my audience is very important, and social media is one of the best ways to connect with readers.
What’s your next step?
I just finished my zombie apocalypse trilogy THEIR DEAD LIVES. I’m now working on a mystery/suspense and a romantic thriller.
