Interview and Giveaway - Thomas A Knight and The Time Weaver


The Time WeaverThe Time Weaver
by Thomas A Knight
Paperback, 306 pages
Published January 31st 2012 by DragonWing Publishing

Premise:
It started with a car accident. 
What should have killed thirty-year-old Seth Alkirk, instead causes time to stop. He didn't know what was happening as he took in the frozen world around him. He didn't know why he was the only one who could move, or breathe, or see what was going on. But when a rift opened in the middle of the intersection, and a vicious twelve-foot-tall creature stepped through into his world, Seth did know one thing for certain... 
He had to run. Or die. 
Enter a parallel world where magic exists. Discover a kingdom in danger of being overrun by a massive army. And follow Seth as he discovers he is more than a human – he is a Time Weaver who can change the balance of the coming war, if only he can learn to control his powers in time.

I am happy to welcome Thomas A Knight and his exciting book, The Time Weaver to Colorimetry!!  I don't know about you, but I'm intrigued by "time weaving" and I'm ready for a good time-stoppin' read!

Interview:

 * How did you get the idea to write your book?

I'm a total pantser when I write, so my ideas just come to me. I draw from a very large creative pool though. I've spent the last 20 years playing pen & paper fantasy role playing games, video games, card games, and just being an all-round geek. My experiences fuel my ideas and the characters and stories take on a life of their own.
 * Do you have a favorite scene or character you can share?

One particular scene that I loved writing also includes my favourite character, Malia. Cedric the bard leads Seth and Malia to a cave to visit "an old friend" but doesn't tell Seth and Malia that only a Lyecian can enter the inner cave. Malia and Cedric are left waiting at a dead end for Seth to return, and are attacked by a pack of vicious Narshuks.
Malia and Cedric fight back the best they can, but there are too many of them, and they are being overrun. The scene is very tense. 

 * Can you tell us something personal about you? 

I like to sing, and dance. When I was younger, I used to frequent a Kareoke bar every week just to sing and have fun with friends. I haven't done much singing or clubbing since I settled down and had kids, but I wouldn't turn down the opportunity to go again if it was convenient.

  2. This does sound really interesting! I was a bit hesitant to enter because I am in a YA obsessed. Then I realize, if this had been YA instead of adult I would have entered without hesitation, and the tag of "adult" should not keep me from reading something that might really good! ;)

    1. I agree with you, totally. I do a little more research for "adult" books, but I try not to use that as a hard rule.

      Ok... I didn't even pay attention that this was "adult" vs. YA. I never do. I mean... I check into books like crazy before highlightin' 'em or adding them to my Wishlist, but then I sorta sit back -n- enjoy!!

      I should pay more attention to that. In general.
