Roger Vallon Interview

711 Press caught up with thriller author Roger Vallon, who has gathered an impressive Twitter following in just one week (over 640 followers interested in his new series, called Kill Factor). We had a few questions for Roger that we figured would tie in nicely with the release of his first book. The results of that interview follow below:

711 Press: So Roger, Kill Factor officially releases tomorrow (08/31/2011), although I see it’s already live on Kindle, lol. We want to congratulate you on your first release. We loved the manuscript when we first read it and it’s even more explosive now that it’s polished and edited.

Roger Vallon: Thanks. I must say, people think writing a book is easy. It’s not; it takes lots of work to hone your writing skills. And following the 711 writing guidelines makes it even more difficult. There were times I almost wanted to kill you guys, like my character Hadrian Black would have :) no offense. But, having the 711 team produce the book with me made it such a wonderful, rewarding experience in the end. I honestly don’t think Kill Factor would’ve been as compelling as it is if not for your guidance. So, much obliged for that.

Almost There. . . .

A few more tweaks on Kill Factor and all will be right as rain, then its off to the trusty editor for a final polish before we push this thing into publication. The new release date is tentatively set for the last Friday in August, I believe--that falls on the 26th. Future books are being plotted as I write this, and plans are looking good for the Kill Factor franchise, though the first one is yet to hit shelves, virtual or otherwise. 

The tweaks and rewites are going well, and were, in my opinion, very necessary, since this is the first in a new series and must therefore properly set the tone. I'm pleased thus far, and I believe readers will be as well once they get to devour the final version.
