Author Interview: ‘The Midas Effect’ by Manuel Dorado

About the Book:

What would happen if someone could turn every one of their wishes into reality? Is the human psyche empowered to manage the power of a god?

Alongside a plot of international intrigue and scientific conspiracy, the characters The Midas Effect must answer to themselves those key questions. They leave us a trace of reflection throughout this story that grips the reader until its round ending.

Miguel Le Fablec, a young European university professor, appears to have the ability to turn his imagination into reality – the so-called Midas Effect. Unaware of his power, Miguel attracts the attention of the CIA and NASA, which take him to the US and draw him into international intrigues, scientific projects and secret services operations that overwhelm his reaction capacity. Everyone wants to control and use him. But how do you control a power such as this?

Author Interview:

1: Tell us a little about yourself and what got you in to writing.

I am an aerospace engineer and writer. Engineering and literature are primarily creative pursuits. I am an engineer by vocation, and I am fortunate to be able to develop my work in my area, and I am a writer by vocation as well.

My writing vocation has always been there, although I did not always want to dedicate myself to writing professionally. I also painted when I was a child, and I composed music when I was a teenager. I also entered inventor competitions, so my creativity has always driven me. One day, being an engineer, I decided that my vocation as a writer should not remain as just one of my hobbies. I felt that I could and should materialize writing in a professional way, so I jumped into it. I think that every profession requires education and training, including writing. And, as a good, square-headed engineer, I decided I needed training. I wrote and attended narrative classes for several years. I was trained at the Madrid School of Writers. I was published in literary magazines in Spain and Mexico, I won some international literary contests, and my stories have been published in several countries. My first novel, The Midas Effect, has been quite successful in Spanish and was selected in the literary section of the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival, which brought it closer to the world of cinema. I then decided to translate and publish it in English, since the story takes place mainly in the USA and many characters are North American. I think that its technothriller genre will be appreciated among English-speaking readers.

I am very systematic, and that is an essential skill for an engineer as well as for the novelist. I am very serious when I take something seriously.

2: Do you have a favourite time and place where you write?

Not at all. My time is occupied by my full-time job and by taking care of my two children, my father, and my partner. So any place and any free time is good for writing. A few years ago, I used to travel a lot all over Europe, and I used to write on the plane, in the hotel, and while waiting at airports. The longer the flight delay was, the better for me because it meant more time to write. I don’t care about the noise or how uncomfortable a place is; I just need a laptop. I’m the airport terminal novelist.

Of course, I also have a very small table where I write when I find time at home, which is usually in the evening or at night.

I also really like writing in public libraries. Thinking and writing surrounded by disheveled students who are focused on their exams… Yes, that encourages and inspires me. So, I’m also the library novelist.

3: Where do your ideas come from?

I have technical and scientific training. I read essays and scientific dissemination magazines as a hobby. When technology or science advances towards some limit that falls outside the conventional or social approaches that we all have, and they do so continuously, a technological-moral dilemma arises. For a technothriller writer, this is fertile ground. Later, I build the argument at the service of the idea, with the intention that the reader lives it and the dilemma is his.

4: Do you have a plan in your head of where the story is going before you start writing, or do you let it carry you along as you go?

When I write a novel, I am very clear about where the story is going. It is not an exact point but it is a direction to point to. Then, before starting to write, I also decide the narrator or narrators, the narrative voices they will have, the tone, and many details. Then I write an outline where I begin to describe each chapter or scene, what will happen there, how the characters feel, what turning points there are, where, when, etc. Not all the scenes end up as planned; some are eliminated and others added, but this process helps me to define the plot well.

When I write short stories, on the other hand, I usually experiment with different narrative techniques, genres, and textures. I leave my comfort zone and among the many things I risk is the end. Sometimes I write by letting the characters move themselves towards an ending that I do not know. I have even tried automatic writing.

But for a novel, I always have a plan and a storyboard.

5: What genre are your books, and what drew you to that genre?

My main genre is technothriller. I like to write it, and I already have sketches for several more novels in this genre (actually, I have already finished one of them in Spanish; English will take a while, I am afraid).

Going back to the question, I like technothriller because it allows me to develop divergent, annoying ideas, contrary to common feelings, and that attracts me a lot in literature. Of course, I have tried more literary genres, and I have published them, such as surrealism, dirty realism, and comedy. I have also tried narrators who break the fourth wall, ambiguous narrators, symbolism… I think that experimentation and a foray into other genres and techniques provides narrative authority, and that’s good for any writer. All in all, I’m afraid I’m a genre author.

I have also finished a short story book. Although I use various narrative techniques and textures for each story, all of them tend to my bedside genres: light science fiction, dystopia, and technothriller, or a mix of all of them. I think the stories in this book fall perfectly within the attention span of my novel readers. So, yes, my preference is within plots mixing international intrigue with technology.

6: What dream cast would you like to see playing the characters in your latest book?

I wrote the first draft of The Midas Effect in Spanish in 2004, so my dream cast has changed a lot since then. At that time, I saw Johnny Depp as Miguel le Fablec, the main character, a European university professor. The co-star of the novel, a young American scientist of Italian descent, could be Penelope Cruz. For the antagonist, a CIA agent of Cuban descent, I imagined Andy Garcia. And in the role of Gorlov, the Russian scientist and former KGB agent, I saw Michael Caine.

It’s been a long time now, although I think some of these actors would still fall into my dream of seeing The Midas Effect in a movie.

7: Do you read much, and if so, who are your favourite authors?

As Cervantes, Chekov, Flaubert, Faulkner and many other of these giants are or should be a reference for any writer, I will not dwell on them. They are my literary base, like anyone else’s. But let’s go to my references at the time of writing my novels. By proximity to the genre and to mention just a few: Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Stanislaw Lem, Michael Crichton, and Stephen King. They have direct, efficient prose and a great ability to develop suggestive ideas mixed with entertaining plots. Two whom I admire and have greatly influenced me are Cormac McCarthy (I love modern American writers) and Dino Buzzati (also Italians). And I can’t resist mentioning Orwell, who opened my eyes to literature when I was a teenager.

8: What book/s are you reading at present?

In the thriller genre, The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides and The Silence of the White City by Eva García Sáenz de Urturi (an excellent Spanish thriller writer). Today, it is difficult to surprise in thrillers, and they both have succeeded. In non-fiction, Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari manages to awaken and maintain interest. He reminds me of Carl Sagan, but with less sarcasm. And in more literary narrative, A Manual for Cleaning Women by Lucia Berlin, who had been slow to fall into my hands and is, in my opinion, a writer by right of the golden age of North American literature.

9: What is your favourite book and why?

Ever since I read it, when I was a teenager, my favorite has been the novel by Orwell, 1984. I think it opened my eyes to literature. It was also the first book I read in Spanish and in English.

10: What advice would you give for someone thinking about becoming a writer?

I am an aerospace engineer. I was trained at university and obtained my master’s degree before starting to work in the aviation world. One question: would you board and fly in a plane built by an aviation enthusiast? No, right? Maybe you would prefer a plane built by a well-trained and skilled professional, wouldn’t you? Well, why do many people think that one can write without having received training in literature? I do not want to say it must be academic training; I know it is not the only kind, but I believe that training for any job is essential. In Spain, there is no university training for creative writing; I know that in the United States there are. In any case, anywhere in the world one can be trained in any discipline.

The first thing I did was to consider learning literary techniques as an academic training. I looked for professors with reputations and seriousness. At the School of Writers, they taught me the techniques and invited me to write everything that, by technique, genre or subject, I had never considered writing or even reading. I read a lot of diverse authors. I read books on literary technique, novels that have nothing to do with my style, others that do, short stories, great classics, avant-garde, poetry. Everything contributes and shapes the writer.

Trying to master the techniques and to define and work the appropriate technique for each story is fundamental in my work.

Without a doubt, I advise anyone wanting to become a writer to look for a school, workshop, teacher, literary gathering, or place where they teach literature and creative writing. Writing is a very serious profession that requires training and practice. You also must read a lot of diverse authors.

Then it comes the writing itself, and that that is hard work. Very hard. And there is no muse who skips it or redeems you from doing it. Without hard work and technique, there are no happy ideas or muses that are worthy.

Book Blitz: ‘Killer Politics’ by Norman Brewer

Title: Killer Politics

Sub-title: A Satirical Tale of Homegrown Terrorism

Author: Norman Brewer

Genre: Political Thriller

Sub-genre: Satire

 

About the Book:

Killer Politics: A Satirical Tale of Homegrown Terrorism is laced with razor-edged political satire aimed at a thinly veiled Trump-like president. Inspired by President Tower’s divisive rhetoric, Hoss, a white supremacist and terrorist, launches a bid to incite martial law and defend the “American way of life.” Feeling threatened by increasing diversity, he teams up with a “Most Wanted” terrorist. They ruthlessly employ off-the-shelf products like drones, computers, and guns in attacks on “soft targets”—a rock concert, the food supply, the electrical grid, an aging reservoir with people living downstream. People die, and pressure builds to bring the terrorists to justice, with a rogue FBI agent in relentless pursuit.

Tense, fast-paced, and far too realistic, one reviewer said Killer Politics mirrors the current political landscape. Thrilling and suspenseful with just the right amount of tongue-in-cheek humor. A must-read!

Excerpt:

The downtown arena was packed for an event put together in less than twenty hours. That can happen when the President of the United States suddenly has a hole in his schedule and wants to feed his political base, and let it feed him.

Short notice or not, the bleachers couldn’t have held another sweaty body. Neither could the floor, with folding chairs metal on metal. The faithful were happier than a robin in a worm farm, clapping and hooting as President Tower bragged, threatened his critics, pummeled the media.

“I understand your scummy local brotherhood of textile workers – what’s left of it – has a problem with its pension fund. Not surprising for an outfit that spent money on ads supporting my crooked opponent. Even though your dues paid for those ads, I won’t allow your hard-earned pensions to be raided,” he declared generously. “My Justice Department is on this!”

Jonathan T. Tower had narrowly lost New Hampshire in the last election. He was determined to not lose it again. Purportedly, he was in Manchester to announce “innovation” grants for training new workers in two small plants that manufactured wood burning stoves. The announcement might justify the White House paying for the trip, his campaign manager hoped.

“These really good industries that use our renewable resources are the future,” Tower declared. “This money makes better use of your tax dollars, coming from a fund previously used to subsidize solar and wind.”

A man wearing an advertising billboard shaped like a wood burning stove jumped to the stage.

“In with the old, out with the new!” the wood burning stove shouted as Secret Service agents grabbed him.

“Stop!” the president commanded. “Let the stove speak.” The agents released him. “In with the wood …,” the stove improvised haltingly. Then wisely returned to,

“In with the old, out with the new!” The crowd picked up the chant. The stove beamed and slapped his wooden slats to the rhythm.

Quieting the happy throng, Tower intoned, “This man knows of what we speak. He has been there and will some more. This is what this strong administration does.”

And then the lights went out. The microphone, too. Phones lit up. Tower could be made out in the dim light, weaving about as Secret Service agents herded him from the edge of the stage. “Stay calm. Stay calm,” he loudly advised. “I’m told the generator will come on briefly.”

It did. Briefly. Just long enough for Tower to get back to the microphone. “OK. Everything’s OK, folks. Relax …”

The arena went dark again. Loyalists near the stage could hear “… then get somebody to a fucking station for new gas, lots of it …”

Someone in the crowd – a Democrat spy, the White House would say later, without evidence – yelled, “Does he have a gun?”

“Man with a gun!” someone confirmed loudly. “Was someone shot?” “The president was shot!”

The crowd panicked. The slow got pushed. The large knocked aside the old. Flashlights on phones bathed the confusion in uneven light. The billboard man went down hard, pushed by an old woman who had been denied a grant for a wind farm. The billboard shattered. A man wearing a wife beater undershirt and bikini underwear stumbled from the slats. People fell down the steep arena stairs. Others fainted or sought the protection of a fetal position. Luckily there were a lot of exits, so trampling casualties were reduced.

Ambulances arrived quickly and hauled scores to hospitals. Only three would die – two women of heart attacks and a man who fell from balcony seating.

President Tower barely got to his high-donor fundraiser on time.

 

About the Author:

And now there are two: Killer Politics is my second book about domestic terrorism. My first was Blending In: A Tale of Homegrown Terrorism. In Killer Politics, a Trump-like president inspires a white supremacist, who teams up with the nation’s most wanted terrorist to attack innocent civilians.

Both novels are retirement projects after a career in newspapers and a stint at the Transportation Security Administration. At TSA, I didn’t catch bad guys at airport security, but directing Employee Communications did expose me to security threats that were helpful in writing these books.

I hope you find them enjoyable and I welcome reviews. Besides this site, I have an author’s page on Amazon, Books by Brewer on my Facebook page, and can be reached at brewjn@peoplepc.com

Excerpt

Jehan walked through the labyrinthine hallways of the Parliament House in a daze. Some of his colleagues at the Institute had offered to accompany him to the meeting, albeit halfheartedly, but he’d refused. He hadn’t asked their permission before he put this thing in motion; it wouldn’t be fair to drag them into it now that it was time to face the music.

Besides, he might need their help yet. No point in burning bridges he might soon need to cross. He’d incinerated enough of them already.

Jehan shook his head, trying to pull his mind out of the funk it seemed to be sinking into with every passing day. He hoped he looked presentable. Too much caffeine and too little sleep had taken their toll on his appearance; not that he had ever looked particularly healthy to begin with.

He could count on his fingers the number of hours he had slept in the past week, and Dileep kept telling him he was losing weight he couldn’t afford to lose. He was probably right. His favorite cardigan hung off him like the rags off a scarecrow, and he’d had to punch an extra hole in his belt so his trousers wouldn’t fall off.

Jehan clutched at his sleeves and pulled them down over his fingers. He needed to buy a pair of gloves. Was it colder than usual this year, or was he coming down with something? God, please let it be global warming wrecking the planet’s weather cycle. He couldn’t afford to be sick right now.

And then his feet froze mid-step. Across the corridor, he could see Rajat step into the elevator hall and press the call button for one of the lifts.

For a few seconds, Jehan couldn’t make himself move. He stood there, biting his lip, feeling like a boy who had been summoned to the principal’s office for hiding in the library during sports-class. Every instinct told him to turn away and make a run for it.

Or to run to Rajat and apologize. Explain everything, and ask his mentor for the help and guidance he had always so generously provided. Jehan didn’t think he had ever needed Rajat more than he did now.

The elevator pinged, a tinny voice announcing the floor. Jehan forced himself into a brisk walk, stepping into the lift just as the doors were about to close. He was panting, and he realized a moment later that his hands were shaking. He clenched them into fists and shoved them into his pockets.

When he finally looked up, Rajat was staring at him like he had seen a ghost.

Seconds passed and neither of them said a word. Jehan parted his lips, tried to make his tongue form a greeting. But there was a stone lodged in his throat and nothing came out but a broken gasp. Fuck. What was he doing? Why on earth had he thought it would be a good idea to get on this lift with Rajat?

At length, Rajat raised an eyebrow. Had he practiced that look in a mirror? Surely, it wasn’t possible to convey that much contempt and disgust with a single expression without considerable practice.

He forced himself to hold the other man’s gaze, waiting for him to speak. Whatever he said, Jehan was sure he would have deserved it.

“Why?”

Jehan looked away. God, how he wished there’d been some curses and expletives attached to that question. Anything to distract from that sense of naked betrayal.

“You wouldn’t believe me if I told you.”

Rajat hit the little red emergency stop button so hard Jehan was vaguely surprised it didn’t break. “You’re right, I probably wouldn’t. Even I’m not stupid enough to believe the same lies over and over again. Or maybe I am. You’ve certainly proved to me that I’m far more gullible than I ever suspected.”

“Rajat–”

“Why are you here, Jehan?” The rage seemed to go out of Rajat almost as quickly as it had arrived, leaving behind a tired old man who looked like he had aged ten years in the few weeks since Jehan had seen him last. “Why did you board this lift? You could easily have gotten another one. What, you want to gloat about how clever you’ve been? Well, I’ll give you that. You were clever. And helpful, wittingly or otherwise. You exposed people in my own Cabinet that I’d never have suspected of being corrupt. I suppose I should thank you for that. But the game isn’t over yet, my boy,” he spat the words like they’d burned his tongue. “And the final scores might not be what you imagined.”

“I…” Jehan glanced down at his feet, trying to keep himself from fidgeting. “I just wanted to talk to you before…” he gave a half-shrug, glancing in the general direction of the east wing, where the meeting was to convene. “Before it all begins.”

Rajat laughed, but there was no humor in his voice. “It began when you called that press conference, Jehan. This is where it ends.” He pressed the red button again, restarting the lift. “I don’t know why you’re doing this, or who put you up to it. But you should know that I will find out, and I’ll never forget what you’ve done.”

The elevator grunted to a halt at their floor and the doors pinged open. Jehan stepped out, turned around, and forced himself to meet Rajat’s eyes one last time. “Then I hope with all my heart that a day will come when you’ll be able to exact your revenge, sir.”

 

About the Author:

I’m Nupur, and I am a writer. Over the years, that has beenpretty much the only constant of my identity. At the moment, I’m a copywriter by day, and a writer of over-the-top fiction and awkward poetry by night.

I’m also an enthusiastic – albeit painfully slow – reader, and a YouTube binge-watcher. I like coffee, papdi chaat, completed fanfics, and sleep. I dislike unnecessary cliffhangers, slow internet, abandoned WIPs, and being woken up in the morning.

I also like cats. All cats. Mine is called Leju, and she’s a baby demon with claws.

Author Interview:

1: Tell us a little about yourself and what got you in to writing?

Thanks for having me as a guest at Reading Nook! My name is Craig DiLouie, and I’m a bestselling author of speculative fiction. In other words, sci-fi, fantasy, horror, thrillers. My work has been published by major publishers, small presses, and also self-published. My latest novel is Our War, published by Orbit in August 2019, which is a dystopian thriller about a brother and sister forced to fight on opposite sides of a contemporary American civil war.

I got into writing at an early age. I grew up in a rural part of New Jersey with a lifestyle where it paid to have a great imagination, and when I hit high school, which felt like prison to me, I put that imagination to good use. Reading was a perfect escape into amazing worlds, and after a while, I became excited by the idea I could be these worlds’ creator.

2: Do you have a favourite time and place where you write?

Some writers love to work in coffee shops or with great music playing. I’m not that cool. I write at home, at my desk, ideally in almost perfect silence other than the purr of my keyboard. Inside my head, though, all hell is breaking loose.

3: Where do your ideas come from?

Basic what-ifs that usually tie into a big idea. For Our War, I kept seeing right wing pundits and politicians talk up the idea of a second civil war, and I thought, OK, what would that actually look like? I became convinced such a war would look a lot like the Bosnian War of the 1990s. I did a lot of research on that war and other modern civil wars and imported those ideas into Our War.

4: Do you have a plan in your head of where the story is going before you start writing or do you let it carry you along as you go?

I always either map out the plot architecture as a series of four acts, the character arcs for each major character, or usually both. There’s plenty of “pantsing” or “discovery” in there, but I always want to know where the story is going. It’s much more efficient as an approach to me, and I get better stories.

5: What genre are your books and what drew you to that genre?

I write stories about ordinary people in extraordinary situations, the more extraordinary, the better. Sci-fi, dark fantasy, horror, thrillers. I love seeing average people put through the wringer to really see what they made of, how they react to ethical dilemmas, and make the whole thing as realistic as possible. If I were to adopt a motto for my writing, it would be: Give the reader people they care about facing extreme struggle in a world that feels real.

7: Do you read much and if so who are your favourite authors?

I don’t think you can be the best writer you can be if you don’t read. I’m reading all the time, both for enjoyment and for the learning about craft and storytelling it provides. I have many favorite authors, and nobody comes to mind as an absolute favorite. I tend to be more a fan of books than the people who wrote them, though I admire anybody who is good at this game.

8: What book/s are you reading at present?

I’m currently reading Wanderers by Chuck Wendig. It’s a sprawling read, but it’s a lot of fun.

9: What is your favourite book and why?

There’s a short list of books I revisit every few years to read again. One that comes to mind is 1984. I get something new every time I read it.

10: What advice would you give for someone thinking about becoming a writer?

I could say quite a bit, but I think for a writer starting out, most of all I’d say: Get over any prejudice about what it takes to be a writer. Unlike athletes or musicians, we tend to see authors as born not made, though really anybody can be a writer, and as with other arts, practice makes perfect.

11: What are the best Social Media Sites for people to find out about you and your work?

 The best place to find me is www.CraigDiLouie.com.

Thank you for having me as a guest today!
