Podcast Interview with Author Quincy J. Allen
In this episode, Adron talks with cross-genre author Quincy J. Allen. Quincy just released Blood Curse, a western steampunk epic fantasy. It’s the second book in his “Blood War Chronicles” series, published by WordFire Press, which is the publishing imprint from superstar writers Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta. Blood Curse is available now on Amazon, Nook, Smashwords and Kobo.
Quincy isn’t just a writer, though. He’s part of the WordFire Press machine that we’ve seen do amazing sales at comic conventions, which are often challenging environments for prose writers. Quincy creates the book layout design for all of Wordfire’s offerings, manages their warehouse, and is constantly on the road, working their impressive displays at cons.
We’ve been wanting to talk with Quincy for awhile, and finally had the chance back at Kansas City’s Planet Comicon. We recorded this interview on the convention floor, so please forgive the noisy background. It’s an interesting chat with a guy who didn’t start pursuing a professional career in writing and publishing until his mid-forties. We talk about juggling multiple aspects of a demanding career, realistic goal setting to guide his progress, and life on the road as an introvert who talks to hundreds of con-goers at every show.
