The Rule of Three Blog Tour - Interview With Eric Walters

The Rule Of Three is a pulse pounding, action filled story of survival. The author, Eric Walters, is stopping by the blog today to answer a few questions. I've reviewed the novel today as well, if you're curious to read my thoughts.

Before sharing the Q and A, I wanted to first share the amazing trailer for the book. It captures the tone of the novel perfectly.

1 Describe The Rule of Three in three words

Most will die

2 The Rule of Three is all about being prepared. What three things do you think everyone should have in their survival kit?

 Chlorine tablets, lots of canned/packaged food, and probably a weapon of some kind.

3 What are three things that you can share about Adam, the main character?

A belief that we should try to do the right thing, a tendency to overthink things, a functional paranoia – just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not trying to kill you.

4 The novel feels very realistic. What kind of research did you do for this novel?

I did all the technical research (including having my son the engineer help with some things), read survival guides, and set the novel right in my neighborhood.  That allowed it to be so real . . . at times too real.  It’s unnerving to wake up in the middle of the night dreaming through scenes and have to go downstairs to lock the door . . . just in case.

5 What three things do you need when you are revising your novel?

A really good editor, patience, and a sense of humility (what do you mean my words aren’t perfect!)

A huge thank you to both Penguin Canada, and Eric Walters for this interview. Be sure to check out The Rule of Three which goes on sale TODAY!

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
