Interview with Bryan W. Dull author of the awesome Solstice
On the blog today I have the very talented author Bryan W Dull, He recently came 2nd in Horror Fans Asylum Author of the year, A fantastic achievement I think you would agree?
It didn’t hurt my ego at all. I just liked I was nominated
Welcome Bryan, Nice to have you on my blog today, Glad you could stop by on your blog tour.
Thanks for having me around again.
How is that going so far?
Good, everything is turning out well and the sequel is out now!
I have to say, I love Solstice, How many are there going to be in the series?
There will be three actual novels in total
When is the next in the series going to be coming out & what will it be called?
“Equinox” is out now, Please check out the link
What was your biggest inspiration for the Solstice Series?
This book started off as a screenplay but I stopped working on it because it was boring me and it was missing something. It turned out that when my daughter was born, a girl was what I needed in the story.
I have noticed a lot of authors have muses, Do you have one? if so, are they male or female & do they constantly talk to you?
I don’t think I have one, the only muse I really have is my music.
How old are you now? if you don’t mind me asking?
I am 34 years old
Do you write full time?
No, not at this point. I wish. I work a full time job and go to school.
Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Videogames, comic books, and 80’s music.
What do you do to celebrate a book coming out?
For myself, I just like knowing that its out. I don’t do anything extravagant. I just see it as another thing I accomplished. I am a bit hard on myself I guess. Maybe I should do something next time.
What would you change about yourself if you could?
I’m a little introverted. I got held up at gunpoint a few times and I have never been able to get back to life like most do and see it. Maybe that’s why my views on people and life are I little askew.
What is your favourite thing to do in the whole world?
Go to the comic book store on the weekends with my daughter.
What would we find on your hard drive right now?
Music, games, writing projects, and schoolwork.
How do you research for your books, Do you go and check out places your books will be based or just google them?
Everything I have done to this point has been from memory. Equinox has some locations I had to Google but not too much
What is your favourite item of clothing?
I like T-shirts with pop culture things on it. I’m a geek.
If and when Solstice is turned into a film, as I am sure it will be, who would you prefer to play the part of Solstice and Why?
Well, it would have to be to separate girls, but I think I would want Chloe Moretz as Solstice. I generally like her as an actress and she has a unique look to her that embodies the character I had in my mind.
Do you read much? If so who are your favourite authors?
Chuck Palahniuk, Clive Barker, Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, and Ernest Cline
If you could be anyone in the world, who would you be & why?
No one. If I were anyone else I wouldn’t be me
All time favorite movie? Or top 3?
Coffee, Tea or something cold, what tickles your fancy the most?
Chocolate or Candy?
Candy, you get more of a variety that way.
Sun or rain?
TigerWell it was so fantastic having you here on my blog, Thankyou
Ebook: Solstice (The Solstice Chronicles)

I was given this by the author for an honest review
Summary: In Gavin Moxley's world, there is no thin line between right and wrong. In a personal crusade to help sever a line of disease carried by a clan of vampires; Gavin has no choice to be ruthless. The Vampires are purposely infecting the human population…waiting for humans to actively pass it on to each other. Gavin takes no chances and executes them one by one. Not strong or powerful, finding humans before they turn into full vampires is ideal and Gavin’s best bet.
Yes, this is Gavin’s life…
…And nothing ever changes it until a young half breed vampire with special abilities, Solstice, attaches and makes herself a fixture in his life when she asks for his help and protection and when a reluctant Gavin agrees he joins a dangerous game of cat and mouse. There is no safe place and the pair are constantly watching their backs. Torn between his hate and his love for Solstice Gavin is thrown into a moral dilemma that only he can figure out but two things are clear…
His faith and Humanity are being tested and the past is not always forgotten.
OK I started this a little unsure of whether I would like it, The author was new to me, but I thought give it a shot, there is nothing better than finding an author you could fall in love with and that is what has happened, The author wrote this with such passion, that I believed every word, I thought he brought the book to life for me, I could see the whole book played out in front of my eyes, just like a film, there were a few scenes that were a little hard to put into words but the author succeeded beautifully, the characters were very well written, really descriptive, I will be looking out for more from this author, as he has me hooked on his storytelling, 4.5/5
