5 Minutes Alone… With Alex Adams

Alex AdamsWHITE HORSE is one of the most highly anticipated releases for 2012. And now it’s here. Hailed as post-apocalyptic fiction at its finest, readers hungry for pulse-pounding what-if scenarios are getting their dose of handsomely-worded poison (and antidote) from the genre’s newest star. The first in a trilogy of of stories on what happens after a biological Armageddon, WHITE HORSE is one to watch for on the bestseller lists.

We’d like to thank Alex for taking the time to be part of our “5 Minutes Alone” interview series.

AuthorScoop: What was your very first publication credit?

Alex: Does my high school theater class retelling of The Wizard of Oz count? No? Rats! In that case, White Horse is my very first publication credit.

AuthorScoop: Tell us about your latest release.

Alex: White Horse is an apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic thriller for the adult market, though it definitely dips several toes into the Horror genre, too. Zoe, my protagonist, flees to Europe in search of her lost love as the world’s population is dying of a horrifying disease. Her journey is complicated by her unexpected pregnancy and the companions she collects along the way. You won’t find zombies in White Horse’s pages, but those who contract the virus and survive are definitely…different.

AuthorScoop: Aside from your own hard work, who (or what) else do you feel has contributed to your success?

Alex: If I was at the Academy Awards right now, making an acceptance speech, I’d probably say something along the lines of: “I’d like to thank my whole life.” Every experience I’ve ever had–good and bad–and every person I’ve ever known has brought me to this place and time. Most notably, though, my agent Alexandra Machinist and my editor Emily Bestler get a lion’s share of the credit. Every piece of their input made my story stronger.

And my fiance, Bill, of course. He’s the reason Lisa is blind (sorry, Lisa, he was right!) His insight, support, and astounding talent at ordering pizza has been invaluable.

AuthorScoop: At what time of day or night do you do your best writing?

Alex: I’m most definitely a morning person–the earlier the better. By mid-afternoon my attention is waning and all I want to do is look at cats with funny captions.

AuthorScoop: Finally, what advice would you give to new or unpublished writers?

Alex: Don’t be in such a huge hurry. Writing is a craft, and it takes time to learn–and successfully conceal–all the underpinnings. A “no” now isn’t necessarily a “no” forever. All it means is that you’re not ready yet. Everything can change with the next manuscript.

    If nott imitation of the original designer apparel, made elsewhere.
    While the irst sale may be made simply because off
    the familiarity members of the community
    have, if a quality product is being sold, then repeat buainess starts.
    When you call suppliers make sure you have read their website before making
    questions, thus you will not ask questions that you could have easily ffound an answer to because this could reflect
    poorly on your professionalism.
