Listen carefully. You may hear whispers of the city’s mysteries just below the howling of the wind through the rafters of the abandoned fish market. Odd creatures serve a witch in the haunted salt marshes. Sigils of ancient and forgotten magic mark the cliff overlooking the bay. A ruined stone tower of unknown age stands in the square. Do not speak too loudly of these mysteries, lest the Old God send his servants to silence you.
Fear Jacob, the most loyal and gifted of these assassins. He has killed many, from babbling ex-sailors who uncovered too many secrets in dark and faraway lands, to millionaires’ wives who summer in mansions on the cliff and wander one step too far into the occult.
But peer into Jacob’s eyes and you may see a hint of doubt. You may discover what you have suspected all along.
History is a lie.
The world is not what we think it is.
And, it is all about to come crashing to an end.
Author Spotlight on J.P. Moore!
Please tell us about yourself using 3 adjectives, 1 quirk and a pop culture addiction
Humble and quiet, but driven.
Some folks call me stubborn, but they need to stop, because I’m totally not stubborn.
When I’m not distracted by something else, there’s usually a Taylor Swift song running through my head. Not sure if that’s an addiction or a blown fuse.
Top 3 Pet Peeves
Loud eaters need to close their mouths or eat somewhere way the hell out of my earshot.
I ought to be empowered to take driver’s licenses away from folks who brake before they signal. I should be judge, jury, and executioner for these offenders.
And you two-spaces-after-a-period people--do you know how much of your and my energy you’re wasting? Do you realize how selfish and wasteful you are? I bet you keep the door open with the air conditioner on, too.
What are your thoughts on book covers- in your opinion do they make or break a book?
They quite literally make a book. I’ve spent many, many hours talking and thinking about my covers. They work in relationship with my books to the the point that, for Toothless, I even adjusted the text to more closely match the cover because it’s so damn good. The cover for Sigils of the Old God does a fantastic job evoking the atmosphere. It takes me back into the frame of mind I had while writing the prose in some serious ways, which is probably the best measure an author has for a cover.
What’s the last song you listened to?
You mean that Taylor Swift song that’s running through my head right now?
Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?
Write. Write. Write. And when you feel uninspired, write crap. Breathe, eat, write, and repeat.
This or That-
*Morning or Night?
Night. Dark and stormy.
*Vanilla or Chocolate?
*Summer or Winter?
Um … Fall.
*Ebook or Paperback?
*Fantasy or Paranormal?
Is fantanormal a thing yet? It should be, because I think that’s what I’m doing.
About the Author-
J. P. Moore lives and writes in southern New Jersey. Though his characters would feel right at home in the dark and mossy tracts of the Jersey Pine Barrens, the setting that he enjoys with his wife and three children is a long way from the worlds of his novels and stories. Moore's settings are on the brink. Their histories are lost, or misunderstood. Their futures are uncertain. All of the heroes are gone. Only the unlikely heroes are left.
