Product description

Product Description

Have you ever fantasized about working alongside screen legends as their equal? What would it take to work for the same publisher as Dan Brown, or better still, to be nominated for and awarded an Oscar, Pulitzer, Emmy or Best Novel Award? How would an entertainer survive on a desert island with nobody to entertain...what keepsakes would companion them? What thoughts would cross your mind moments before death? Who inspires the inspirational; who do they hold high on a pedestal? Why do writers choose traditional publishing or independent publishing and vice versa?

The answers to these questions and so much more are contained within. With contributions from award winning novelists, directors, publishers and artists including;
Josephine Bailey, Martin Fletcher, Russell Blake, Giles Kristian, Doran Ingrham, Leigh Russell, Claude Bouchard, Phil Hogan, Tim Stevens, Rene Schultz, John Putnam, Matt Lynn, Paul Demeyer, Debra Salonen, Jake Needham, Robert Joseph Ahola, Garrard Hayes, Laura Taylor, James Becker, M J Summers, Ken Farmer & Buck Stienke, H Alan Day, Jack Hayes, Andrew Hughes, Michael Sherer, Alex Cord, Conn Iggulden, Jon King, Epilogue an interview with Author Simon Duringer by Matt Posner.

The Word is brought to amazon by the UK National Blogging Finalist 2014 Simon Duringer.
10% of all royalties are donated to The Royal British Legion.

Pre release Reviews:

"A fascinating insight into the minds of some bestselling authors." Leigh Russell, #1 on kindle.

"Provocative questions as entertaining as the responses are revealing..." Josephine Bailey, AUDIE Winning Narrator / Author of Hotey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Reading 6 July 2014
By LT - reader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is one of those fascinating collections of interviews of all manner of highly regarded creative people. Author/interviewer/well-known UK blogger Simon Duringer doesn't ask cookie-cutter questions of his interview subjects. Clearly, he takes the time to consider just the right set of questions for each individual, thus providing readers with informative and compelling comments from the talented and well-known interviewees who represent a global cross-section of the arts. I was informed, entertained, and delighted as I read THE WORD: The Best of Simon's 10Q Interviews. I think you will be, too! I'm also honored to have been included in Volume 1 of THE WORD. Enjoy! LT

5.0 out of 5 stars A tour de force of networking and interviewing skills 25 July 2014
By Matt Posner - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
in The Word, Simon Dusty Duringer offers us a real tour de force of networking and interviewing skills. He has put together a stunning roster of top-level authorial talent in many genres, especially crime and suspense fiction. If you like writers, there is not a dull page in this book; all the authors are at their best. His top ten questions are well-crafted to bring out their personalities, their personal histories, and their expertise, and believe me, every author has a lot of each. Simon and I have interviewed each other (my interview of him appears in this book) and I can testify to his use of skillful questioning as well as profuse charm to pull things together.

Simon has added a charitable donation to the many reasons to purchase this book. If you find writers fascinating -- and you will, in this case -- then go on and hit that purchase button.

I received an advance review copy of this book at my request from the author, with whom I am professionally connected.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Word is in every sense "An Original." 29 July 2014
By Robert Joseph Ahola - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
When I was asked to be interviewed for "The Word" I had no idea I would be in such illustrious company. Simon Dusty Duringer is unique both as an author and as an editor, because he is able to pull thoughts out of you that you were not yet aware that you had...and form them into a kind of sacred synergy that only great interviewers can create. Then he edits this into an anthology that can only be described as galvanizing. One feels uplifted and validated all at once. A truly exceptional reading experience.
