Tell me a about yourself. What got you started in writing?

My name is Terry Persinger from Salem, Virginia. I love to write science fiction and also read as much as I can. After the death of my grandmother, I began to dream about her telling me a story and this didn't stop for several weeks, that's what got me started on this adventure.

How and where do you write? Do you prefer a lap top or do you prefer writing freehand?

I do most of my writing in the country beside the creek where there is a lot of solitude, so my imagination is free flowing. I have long hand all of my work then transfer it to my laptop.

What's your favorite part about writing? Your least favorite part about writing?

My favorite part would be when the story starts to really come together. My least favorite would have to be when I have a blockage, and it doesn't seem to flow as it should.

How do you come up with your characters? Why would readers want to get to know them?

The characters are the hardest, they must fit my story line and sometimes that can be difficult. The readers will see that the characters fit into their parts and they make the story possible, and grow as the story progresses.

What types of marketing do you do to promote your writing?

Well, right now I am working two jobs because after the collapse of the economy, it has been tougher on me. I have a 5 star rating on Amazon, good reads and there is more about me and Gideon's Loop on Google. My email is

How do you schedule your writing time? When do you write?

I put aside a certain time when I can concentrate and can block out distractions of everyday life.

What are you currently working on? Do you have a new book out?

I am working on book two of the series, The Gideon Legacy currently. But no other book is out.

Do you have a project on the back burner? Tell me about it.

I have many thoughts on several projects, I just have to follow this through first.

What would you tell a beginning writer who wants to publish but doesn't believe he/she has enough talent?

Believe in yourself, take courses on writing and if you feel strongly about your connections, go for it!

Thank you Terry!
