INTERVIEW: KINDLE AUTHOR BLOG!

INTERVIEW: KINDLE AUTHOR BLOG!

I'M SPOUTING OFF AND FLAPPING MY GUMS ABOUT FIGHT CARD AGAIN. . . THIS TIME OVER AT DAVID WISEHART'S POPULAR KINDLE AUTHOR BLOG . . .

Paul Bishop, author of Felony Fists, discusses his book, his journey as a writer, and self-publishing on Kindle.

DAVID WISEHART: What can you tell us about Felony Fists?

PAUL BISHOP: Felony Fists is set in 1954 Los Angeles. Cop/boxer ‘Felony’ Flynn finds himself facing heavyweight contender Solomon King, a fighter owned by mobster Mickey Cohen. Flynn’s orders from legendary LAPD Chief William Parker—knockout King and stop Cohen from taking over the west coast fight rackets.

Felony Fists is the one of two debut books in the Fight Card series created by myself and prolific writer Mel Odom. The Cutman, written by Mel, debuted on Kindle alongside Felony Fists. The books are being published under the unifying pseudonym Jack Tunney.

Fight Card books are 25,000 word novelettes, designed to be read in one or two sittings, inspired by the fight pulps of the '30s and '40s—such as Fight Stories Magazine—and Robert E. Howard’s two-fisted boxing tales featuring Sailor Steve Costigan.

In December, Fight Card will feature a terrific noir tale, Split Decision, by Eric Beetner. 2012 will see books from Gary Phillips (Bare Knuckles), Bob Randisi (The Knockout), Wayne Dundee, and others—along with more from Mel and myself.

DAVID WISEHART: How do you develop and differentiate your characters?

PAUL BISHOP: I live with characters in my head all day every day. Inevitably, one of them will become fully formed and begin putting me under pressure to tell their story. I then start putting words on paper and see where the character takes me . . .
