John Rector – video interview

August 23, 2010

There have been few debut novels that I’ve been impressed with more than The Cold Kiss by John Rector. The story of Nate, his pregnant girlfriend Sara and a mortally wounded hitchhiker named Syl White is a tightly plotted thriller that was literally a single sitting read for me. (and for just about everyone of I’ve subsequently given the book to, including my hard to impress mother.) I was lucky enough to get to sit down with Rector before his appearance at the Poisoned Pen bookstore to discuss The Cold Kiss, his second novel, The Grove, and his upcoming untitled third novel.

After the jump check out the interview.

    another great interview, this time with interesting angles on the route to publishing (including the concept of ‘not really self-publishing). this should appeal to other writers out there keen to see what paths can be walked along.
    and what a nice man – seems like an all round good guy.

    Really cracking interview. What a top bloke Mr Rector seems. Another book for the TBR, of course.

    Great interview with a great, great writer! Can’t wait for the Grove. Hope the Amazon deal makes some waves.

    Great interview and very timely as my review copy of Cold Kiss arrived this week – next book to appear on my book review blog. Looking forward to cracking its spine tonight.
