Thank you for this interview, Kraig. Can you tell us a little about yourself and how long you’ve been writing,http://www.outlets-truereligionjean.com/
I have spent the majority of my life in the military, private security and law enforcement. I’ve been writing for twenty plus years but not too seriously. Back in high school I dabbled in poetry and short stories but it wasn’t until about ten years after I started to take it serious.
Can you tell us briefly what your book is about?
Search for the lost realm is an epic journey in which a young man named Varan wants to find a power, which has been missing from the world of Kantania for thousands of years. Varan sets out but soon discovers his true mission is to save the worlds creator from a spiritual bond placed upon him by the powerful demon, Eldrok.
Why did you choose your particular genre?
I chose fantasy because it takes you to a simpler time,true religion outlet
. If you take away the lack of medical wonders and dysentery, I think I would prefer to live in a time when the strong survived and people worked hard for common goals.
What was your greatest challenge writing this book?
My greatest challenge in writing this book was finding the time and motivation. Starting a new venture is always difficult and not knowing if success will come makes it hard to keep moving forward.
Are you published by a traditional house,celine bags
, small press or are you self-published?
I am self-published,http://www.truereligionjeansowner.com/
. I tried the traditional route but being unknown makes it difficult to get picked up.
Was it the right choice for you?
I feel at the time it was the only choice but I’m hoping in the future I can focus just on writing and let someone else handle all the business that goes along with putting books out. The work is extensive and I would rather not spend my time focused on it.
How are you promoting your book thus far?
I am promoting through various online avenues as well as trying to make contacts in the real world. I have profiles on several sites as well as my own website and the social media sites as well.
How is that going for you?
Promotions are going well but things could always be better,who was living in North Carolina

I currently work outside the home now and again as a driver for a package delivery company. I was doing this fulltime but now it is on an as needed basis, leaving me plenty of time to work on my second novel.
