A war that will decide the fate of the entire human race rages on in the shadows, just beyond our sight. It is not the same old tired vampire versus werewolf story that everyone has heard before. No, this war involves all of the supernatural breeds, from the ones who hide amongst us, to the ones too hideous to face the light of day. This is not a war about money or politics. This war is about honor and greed, hunger and desire!
Sides have been chosen, and soldiers are being gathered. If one group wins then our lives remain as they have always been with none of us the wiser. But if the others are victorious then mankind will be reduced to nothing more than slaves and food, our every breath a living nightmare.
The human race is in desperate need of a champion and the only way to defeat the monsters that would rule us all… is to become one!
Tell us about a favorite character from a book.
Sonja Blue from the Midnight Blue books by Nancy Collins. I love that she is capable of horrible atrocities and yet she is also capable of feeling sympathy for the weak and defenseless. She’s a character that by definition is evil but feels compelled to do right even though she hates to admit it. She must constantly fight to control the demon inside of her and yet she knows that in the direst of circumstances she can cut that demon loose. I really enjoy the duality of it all and that she’s not timid about doing what she must.
Tell us about your current release.
Rebirth Of The Chosen is the story of Quillen Ware or Q as he likes to be called. Q lives a very lonely and mundane life as a hospital security guard. He’s basically plodding through each day just trying to get to the next. That is until the night he’s attacked by a supernatural creature hell bent on destroying him only to be saved by another. Q learns that there is an entire subculture of nonhuman beings living all around us and that the two head factions are on the brink of war. If one side wins mankind goes on living as they always have. If the other side is victorious humans become nothing more than slaves and food…or so he is told. Q must discover the truth about his own unique heritage as well as deciding who is telling the truth and where he fits into this new world. The book is full of action, violence, sex, romance and intrigue with tons of surprises. The follow up is due for release this summer and will be titled Revelations Out Of Darkness with a third intended for release in the winter.
What was one of the most surprising things you learned while writing your books?
That my characters begin to dictate their next move more than I do. I may go into a chapter fully intending to go one direction with it but then it suddenly occurs to me that Q wouldn’t say or do that. Or that one of the other main characters would react in a completely different way to a certain situation than I had originally planned. Instead of following my outline I let the characters individual personalities write the story. Going into this I didn’t realize how alive they would become in my mind or how necessary it would be to stay true to each individual’s unique personality.
Plotter or Pantser? Why?
I always begin as a Plotter by definition. I create an outline, I have a well defined story and I know the ending. Then I start to write and it’s all Panster from there. The vast majority of my structure goes out the window and I allow my characters to do what they do best. I obviously try to guide them in one cohesive direction but how they get there is entirely up to the individual. I can’t force Q to be meek and mild when challenged anymore than I can force Argus to be sweet and fluffy. It’s not in their nature as characters so it wouldn’t be realistic. I try to get everyone to the same place at the same time but it’s all very organic and I allow the story to unfold naturally. If I tried to stick strictly to my original outline I would go crazy.
What do you think makes a good story?
Simply put I have to want to keep reading. I have to need to get back to the book because I can’t stop thinking about it. Whether it’s the sheer volume of action and excitement, or the depth of the intrigue and the plot twists that make me want to keep going it has to grab me and hold onto me. If a book is too slow or begins to bore me then it’s going to end up on the shelf collecting dust. I need an emotional investment of some sort to keep me interested. It can excite me, scare me, turn me on, whatever it is. In the end I need to feel something…besides bored.
What does your significant other and family think of your writing career?
My family is fantastic! My son is too young to read my work but I tell him about the characters and some of the action scenes, he often offers a lot of ideas for new characters, one or two that I have actually incorporated in a way. My wife is a big part of the process not only acting as my impromptu editor, dictionary and thesaurus, but I also bounce a lot of ideas off of her. She is my number one beta reader and new character name generator! Lastly is my Mom. How cool is it when you can have your sixty six year old mother go over scenes full of graphic violence right after she finishes with the erotic sex scenes. It really doesn’t get much better than that!
Robert S. Sadler is 39 years old and lives on the west coast of
with his wife and 11 year old son. Robert’s love of writing began when he was very young but wasn’t truly realized until just recently. His writing style mirrors his personality and in many ways his general beliefs about society as a whole. His passion for writing about good versus evil mixed with tons of violence and a touch of the erotic comes through loud and clear in his first release Rebirth Of The Chosen which is book one in his Secrets Of Blood & Bone paranormal/Urban Fantasy series. He also enjoys writing about the darker side of human nature which you can get a taste of in his latest release Vengeance The Collection, as well as another stand alone title he has in the works called Entitlement. All of Robert’s books contain his trademark sarcasm and twisted, dark sense of humor. He hopes you enjoy reading his books as much as he does writing them and would love to hear from you at www.RSadlerbooks.com or check him out on Facebook. Florida
