Author Interview: 10 Questions with Cliff Ball

Our interview today is with Cliff Ball. Thank you Cliff for being here today and for agreeing to do this interview. Question: Tell us a little about your “real” (Non-writing) life — family, job, church life. Does it give you inspiration for your writing? Does it get in the way of your writing, or are there times when you get help, from people or circumstances? Answer: Occasionally real life helps inspire my writing. What’s going on politically in our country has helped me write The End Times Saga, and I’ve used towns where my relatives live as towns some of my characters are from. I’ve used a personal experience from college (although … Continue reading

Times of Turmoil released to Nook, Kobo, Apple, and Smashwords

Times of Turmoil is now also available to buy on ‪Nook, Kobo,  iTunes, my own webstore, ‬and ‪Smashwords ‬. When I published it in April, I put it into Amazon's KDP Select so I could get some momentum going with it. I might've stayed in it, if I had more borrows, but I had 12 for it, and I managed to get 2286 downloads from the 5 free days. The other novel I have in Select, Beyond the New Frontier, has done worse, having half of the downloads that Times of Turmoil has since October of last year, probably because people aren't all that into mixing genres like alternate history, … Continue reading
