Amazon Q&A Session
Here are my answers to a few questions Amazon asked me as part of their KindleScout program:
Q. Tell us about the cover.
A. I wanted to portray how Jon's openness, his complete lack of emotional boundaries makes him blend into the world.
Q. What is the inspiration for the story?
A. From my own experience. Not that I’m an empath or telepath, but once I quieted my mind and started paying attention to the bizarre coincidences that happen every day, I wanted to write a story that deals with these mysteries and questions surrounding the true nature of consciousness.
Q. Is there a message in your book that you want readers to grasp?
A. Yes, two main ones. First, we all have these mis-beliefs about ourselves and the world that hold us back (like, "I can't be good at math" or "love's not worth the cost"). And second, don't be afraid to question mainstream notions of reality.
