Today with us, we have A.T. King, who is an author of horror stories! Mr. King has always enjoyed storytelling and today we’re going to learn more about him and how he came to practice his passion. Thank you for your time, Mr. King!
What are your ambitions for your writing career?
My ambitions for my career are to entertain as many people as possible. I’d also love to see my stories come to life on the silver screen (I’d love to work with Eli Roth, Rob Zombie, Sam Raimi).
So, what have you written?
I have written and published four books in total, plus I have contributed to three anthologies. All the works are available on Amazon. I have also written over thirty poems, which are not published but I’m thinking about publishing them in the future. I have a blog which I use to promote books by any author that is new and needs or wants the help. I usually sign up with my friend over at Bit’n Books when they have an author with a new release.
What genre are your books?
I tend to write in the horror genre, although my latest work is an erotic thriller. My poetry is in all genres. The poetry is just a way for me to deal with whatever is going on in my life and in the world around me.
What draws you to this genre?
I have always had a love for the horror genre. I think what draws me into it is the fact that anything can happen, and the rules are meant to be broken. It doesn’t have to have a HEA (happily ever after) at the end. Just because something hasn’t been done in the genre before doesn’t mean you aren’t supposed to do it, it just means that you can explore a new path.
When did you decide to become a writer?
I think I have always been a writer of sorts, just didn’t know it. I always loved telling stories and entertaining my friends when I was with them and that’s pretty much what I do now. I weave stories that I share with my friends and readers, the only difference is that I’m not there in person.
What are your thoughts on good/bad reviews?
To be honest I don’t pay much attention to the reviews, but if I did I’d look for the bad reviews more. The reason behind that is because I know that I will always have something to improve on and the bad reviews will help me find out what aspect of my writing I have to work on and get better.
What is your favorite motivational phrase?
My favorite motivational phrase is a quote by Marianne Williamson…
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am i to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of god, your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of god that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others.”
