An Interview With MANA Author Russ Grimes

MarketingNewAuthors.com welcomes author Russ Grimes in his first interview for our blog. Russ Grimes is the author of Adventures of a Middle-Aged Man, his first self-published book.

His fictional work tells the story of a middle-aged man who goes on new adventures after opening a very special box and gaining extraordinary powers. The author uses writing to express his creativity and shares it with others. 

Q: Russ, What made you write Adventures of a Middle-Aged Man
A: I enjoy writing short stories. Publishing a larger story as a book seemed like a nice challenge.

Q: What was the most challenging aspect of getting this work completed and ready for the publisher? 
A: The initial comments from the reviewer. Even though there are many similarities to my family in this book, it is ultimately fictional. I had to remember not to take the comments and suggestions personally as the reviewer was trying to understand my writing and the concepts I was trying to convey to the reader.

Q: What help, if any, did you receive from the publisher? 
A: The publisher helped with the QA/QC (quality assurance/quality control) on the formatting, grammar, and content in the book, as well as assisting with the illustrations that are found throughout.

Q: Now, Russ, didn't you want to write another children's work? 
A. I am currently working on the follow up book to the first. I am currently finishing up the final 2 chapters in this sequel.
