Twelve Books for Christmas

Please welcome Terron James, author of Insight.   After reading this inspirational interview read about the book and how you can win a copy!

Konstanz: Hermione Granger or Bella Swan?

Terron:  Hermione Granger for SOOOO many reasons. She's intelligent, confident, independent, coordinated, and most importantly, her emotions are in check. She can hold her own and doesn't need anybody to protect her. Bella Swan, on the other hand, is the exact opposite on all fronts.

Konstanz: Describe your ideal date with Princess Leia.

Terron:Well, assuming I wasn't married, a perfect date with Princess Leia would go as follows: I'd pick her up in the Millennium Falcon (which I won off Han in a high stakes bet on a pod race), then we'd take a trip to Tatooine for a reunion with the Huts (who are glad to finally meet and thank Leia for ridding them of their obese monarch, Jabba). Afterward, we'd travel to the forest moon of Endor for a unique cultural experience with Wicket and the rest of the Ewoks. During dinner, Leia and I would laugh about the time she made out with her twin brother, then I'd take her back home. I really wouldn't have any interest in Leia because she's a conceded brat, but I'd still be a perfect gentleman. I know better than to mess with a Jedi.

Konstanz: Whats your greatest inspiration as a writer?

Terron: What most inspires me to write is the prospect of inspiring our youth to pull themselves away from their xbox and computer to enjoy some real entertainment. This is captured in my mission statement, "Inspiring an unwavering passion for reading across the globe, one community at a time."

Konstanz: How do you handle the writers life?

Terron: Writing is a full-time job for me. Except for when I'm at the U of U or doing homework, I spend all day writing. I keep myself motivated by listening to movie soundtracks and talking incessantly about my writing to my wife and dad.

Konstanz: What's your favorite book that has been made into a movie?

Terron: Hands down, The Lord of the Rings are my most favorite book-movies, although there are still scenes in those movies that bother me. Just another reason why it's always better to read the book.

Konstanz: What's your favorite Christmas tradition?

Terron: My favorite Christmas tradition is one that my wife and I started when we were married almost 9 years ago. Every Christmas, we get a new Christmas bear to add to our decorations. We usually line them up on the side of our staircase, but we had to move them on top of our halfwall this year because of our overly curious 18-month-old son. It's inspiring and reassuring to look up and see the line of bears representing the years of our marriage. I look forward to when we run out of room on the stairs.

The book:
Beholders- Insight (cover 6x9 US Trade) 1st Edition RGB LOW RES.jpg

Seventeen-year-old Lon Marcs discovers he has been blessed—or cursed—with this gift. He cannot control the power of True Sight and feels it killing him with each passing day. After months of desperate attempts to survive, Lon’s situation becomes more hopeless. He realizes that the only people who might possess the knowledge to save his life are the sworn enemies of his king. To obtain their help, Lon would have to leave behind his family and beloved Kaylen.

Although this is the hardest decision Lon has ever made, it is only the first of many that will test his strength and challenge his interpretation of right and wrong.
