Weekly author spotlight
(I’m part of a facebook group called ‘Indie Authors Unite‘ and we do a weekly facebook blog hop/swap – I’m a bit late this week, this was actually supposed to be last week, but when the laptop died, that kinda scuppered that!)
This week, I’d like to introduce Helmy Parlente Kusuma
Give me a two line description of your book
-Mementoes of Mai is the story of a man who reached an intersection and has to decide where to turn in order to have the love of his life.
Give me a two line description of you
-Helmy Kusuma is an ex-IT worker who has spent two decades typing on the keyboard when suddenly the egg of inspiration fell on his lap.
What’s your favorite scene in your book?
-When the main character was in the middle of a bay shouting “Yeah!”
What did you find hardest?
-Rock, I guess…no, wait a minute, I believe diamond is the hardest.
How about the process – what did you think you were good at, and what did you struggle with?
-I am good at descripting something but still working on creating good dialogues.
If you could ask a fan one thing, what would it be?
-Would you buy my next book?
Who is your favorite author?
If you could meet any one person, who would it be, and where would you go for lunch?
-I would like to meet Jesus and have lunch at a mountain’s tip. I have always wanted to ask him “Do you like salmon or tuna better?”
Anything else you’d like to tell my readers?
-Buy my book or I would send the minions of darkness to rip your wallet, steal 99c and slap your face with my book. Kidding. Seriously, please buy my book.
