Jay Sherer co-wrote the Amazon Top Selling time travel novel Timeslingers with Nathan Scheck (who also co-wrote Death of a Bounty Hunter). Jay co-hosts The Story Geeks podcast, which digs deeper into sci-fi, fantasy, and comic book stories. He also produces content for the Fantasy Storytelling YouTube channel, which exists to help people write and produce their own science fiction and fantasy stories. When he isn’t writing, podcasting, or YouTubing, you can usually find him at the beach in Southern California with his Corgi, Gatsby.
Today he shares his Six Books with us:
1. What book are you currently reading?
Before picking up All Our Wrong Todays, I read Blake Crouch’s time travel novel, Recursion.
2. What upcoming book are you really excited about?
That was a fantastic ride, and I’m looking forward to reading
3. Is there a book you’re currently itching to read again?
4. How about a book you’ve changed your mind about – either positively or negatively?
5. What’s one book, which you read as a child or a young adult, that has had a lasting influence on your writing?
6. And speaking of that, what’s your latest book, and why is it awesome?
I feel like the best way for me to tell you why I think it’s awesome is to let one of our characters speak for me:
"This isn't a story about the man-ogre with a Gatling gun for an arm, or the Tiwan sorceress covered in tattoos, or even the long-winded banker. And, while the speedster idiot and the large, very funny Pinkerton detective lady do play a role, it's not about them either.- Mockingbird-Preacher-Witch (Like I said, I’m in the story. Just read it.)
"You might think this tale is about the Sheriff of Jericho, a man who will do just about anything to save a loved one, including work for a secret, occultish society. And then there’s the woman who bears the brunt of his sins and must defend herself when she's most vulnerable.
"All those characters appear in this story. I do, too. But it’s about more than that. The one I was assigned to, the Korean bounty hunter—he’s at the dead center of it all. Flint. A bounty hunter who comes face-to-face with something we all do: guilt and shame, and the desire to run from them. Not because we're cowards, but because sometimes we just can't stand ourselves. It's a story about that.
"The Gatling guns, the Occult, the paranormal, and even the demon spawn—all those things are just along for the ride."
