Please welcome Shawn D. Brink to The Authorteers! He's here to tell us about his book and what else he has in store.
The Interview:1. Describe your latest book in the length of a tweet or less.
THE DEVIL’S REVENGE is the 2nd in THE SPACE BETWEEN (TSB) trilogy, a Fantasy/Apocalyptic Thriller series with roots in biblical scripture.
2. Which authors have most influenced your writing?
Dean Koontz, Ted Dekker, Frank Peretti, Edgar Allan Poe, and Stephen King would be the top five. Of course many others have influenced me as well.
3. What is/are your favorite quote(s) from your books?
I don’t have a favorite, but here is a quote indicative of the rhythm and cadence of my writing. “Millie had created something dark, and she liked it. She approved of the darkness. She embraced it as she would her own mother.” (The Devil’s Revenge Ch. 2)
4. How long does it take you to write a book?
My goal is one novel per year. In addition, I usually complete a few shorter works per year that appear in various publications.
5. Has your writing evolved since the first book you published?
Yes! Make no mistake, the 1st book is a good read. However, I have had numerous people tell me that they were incapable of putting the 2nd book down prior to finishing. My third book (currently in the works) contains a continuation of this evolution within its pages.
6. Where does your inspiration come from?
My God and my faith in Him. The antics of my family and friends. The creativity I see in others. My dreams. My nightmares. My fears. My pleasures. Things that pain me. Where I go. What I see, smell, hear, or otherwise sense. Many other things too numerous to list. Pretty much anything and everything inspires me.
7. What are you working on right now?
Right now? I am answering your interview questions (haha) – but seriously, I am completing the third TSB novel - working on obtaining agent representation for a YA Thriller - reading/critiquing/reviewing another author’s unpublished novel - organizing events/appearances - doing research for one of my books - reading good fiction (which is very important if you want to write good fiction). The list goes on and on. When I was younger, I thought being a writer was nothing more than sitting on a beach with a drink in one hand, a pen in the other, and a notepad balanced on one knee. I was wrong. Still, it’s what I love to do and would not trade it for the world.

About the Author
I am currently building a following with two novels to my name. My first book, THE SPACE BETWEEN, was published through Martin Sisters Publishing (MSP) in 2013. More recently, due to encouraging sales of that book, MSP released the sequel entitled THE DEVIL’S REVENGE. One of my published manuscripts placed third in a horror/ghost story contest sponsored by WRITERS’ JOURNAL. In addition, I have numerous stories in publications such as SPECKLIT, FLASHES IN THE DARK, and THEME OF ABSENCE.

From the back cover of THE DEVIL'S REVENGE:
In this, the second book of the series, the devil attacks mankind in order to become their supreme ruler. He enlists a witch named Millie to be his earthly servant as well as a sacred number of seven demons who help him in waging his war.
Most humans are oblivious to the devil's plan. It is up to a woman named Alice and Garrett, her pastor to protect the human race from becoming subject to the devil's rule.
They cannot succeed without God's help, but has God abandoned them? Only time can reveal these answers.
Genre: Fantasy/Christian/Apocalyptic Thriller
