1) Tell us a little bit about yourself. How did you get into writing?
I’m Sarah Baethge and I’ve always loved reading. After a car wreck derailed my college career, I started reviewing stories and that eventually led to me trying to write my own.
2) What inspired you to write your book?
I self published a short novella a few years ago (free on Google Drive now) but it started somewhat abruptly, so I wrote this story to be a prequel for it because the whole story has just kept growing in my mind.
3) What theme or message do you hope readers will take away from your book?
I hope that they can enjoy it. I wrote it as fun entertainment.
4) What drew you into this particular genre?
I like to read it.
5) If you could sit down with any character in your book, what would you ask them and why?
I’d sit down with Ronald Carpenter, I’d like to know more about his view of The Eclipse company; I don’t feel like I describe it very well.
6) What social media site has been the most helpful in developing your readership?
I like using Twitter, but more people seem to be concerned with my Facebook page.
7) What advice would you give to aspiring or just starting authors out there?
Write what you like to read. Don’t give up just because you aren’t sure how other people will react.
8) What does the future hold in store for you? Any new books/projects on the horizon?
I have some plans for about four sequels to this Speed of Darkness book and a couple of Ideas for both a space story and a time-travel story. I’m not really sure which one I will work on first.
