Author Interview – Brie McGill

Have you met any people in the industry who have really helped you? One of the most rewarding aspects of publishing independently has been becoming acquainted with others doing exactly the same thing. There are so many creative and clever people out there, writing across all genres, it’s both humbling and inspiring to be able to chat with them, to learn from them.

What do you hope people will take away from your writing? How will your words make them feel? Hope: I want people to feel inspired, uplifted. Much of what inspires me to write is how I overcame my own personal hardships, so I’d like to remind others that there is always a way through anything. The human spirit is indestructible.

What’s your favorite meal? Wild Coho salmon pan-seared with maple syrup, soy sauce, and cabernet sauvignon.

What movie do you love to watch? Ferngully, The Matrix, Demolition Man. I would watch Repo! A Genetic Opera all the time, but sadly, my boyfriend hates it.

How do you feel about social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter? Are they a good thing? For professional use, social media is an excellent marketing tool if used judiciously–to forge personal connections with others, rather than to spam. For personal use, I only engage the SOCNET with Adblocker and other safer-surfing protocols. Nothing on the internet is truly secure.

If you could do any job in the world what would you do? I would write for a living, and nothing else! As a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut. Maybe I was homesick.

What makes you angry? Cellphone-engrossed drivers whose lives were spared solely by the grace of my assiduous awareness of the road.

What’s the reason for your life? Have you figured out your reason for being here yet? Existence is both a blessing and a mystery, so much that I am compelled to write about it. Kain is an exploration of life, death, the framework of the mind, and beautiful fragility of life.

Kain

Counting days is irrelevant in the life of a well-to-do man, unless he counts the days passed in total service to the Empire. Salute. Submit. Shut up and scan the wrist. Therapists armed with batons and brass knuckles guide the derelict along a well-beaten path to Glory.

When human experiment Lukian Valentin escapes the Empire to save his crumbling sanity–through a grimescape of fissured highways, collapsing factories, putrescent sewers–he realizes the fight isn’t only for his life, it’s for his mind. Torturous flashbacks from a murky past spur him on a quest for freedom, while the Empire’s elite retrievers remain at his heels, determined to bring him home for repair.

Lukian needs one doctor to remove the implanted chips from his body, and another to serve him a tall glass of answers. Lukian attempts a psychedelic salvage of his partitioned mind, gleaning fragments of the painful truth about his identity.

A scorching, clothes-ripping rendezvous with a mysterious woman offers Lukian a glimpse of his humanity, and respite from his nightmarish past. It also provides the Empire the perfect weakness to exploit for his recapture.

To rise to the challenge of protecting his new life, his freedom of thought, and his one shot at love, Lukian must reach deep into his mind to find his true identity. To defeat the Empire, he requires the deadly power of his former self–a power that threatens to consume him.
