I’ve always been passionate for writing my own stories because I love the escapism of fiction. I’m an avid reader of comics and literature, I spend many hours playing video games, I’ve watched Lord knows how many animes, I often make multiple trips to the movie theater every month — I just plain love storytelling and everything that goes with it.
That’s a big part of why I’ve enjoyed my time at The Geekiverse as much as I have, a website that has given me the opportunity to report on and analyze the various entertainment mediums that I commit so much of my time to consuming. Recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing an author who I’ve followed since my college days.
I first became familiar with Isaac Hooke when I read the opening volume in his ATLAS trilogy all the way back in 2013. Since then, he’s published a whopping 32 additional novels, primarily in the science fiction genre, including such series like Alien War, Star Warrior, A Captain’s Crucible, A.I. Reborn, and plenty more. If you browse the Book section of Amazon, you may recognize his name. He’s become one of the hottest science fiction writers there, his releases always lighting up the sales charts.
I recently had the chance to chat with him as part of an interview for The Geekiverse, where we discussed his love for science fiction, his incredible work ethic, the business side of self-publishing, among other topics.
