Fate and The Exorcist: An In-depth Interview with William Peter Blatty

Many readers asked if my 10,000 word interview with William Peter Blatty from the Cemetery Dance Publications special edition of The Exorcist/Legion would ever be available again, so I’m pleased to report it’s been republished as an eBook for just 99 cents:

Fate and the Exorcist

Fate and The Exorcist: An In-depth Interview with William Peter Blatty
by Brian James Freeman

When Cemetery Dance Publications managing editor Brian James Freeman sat down with William Peter Blatty for a quick interview, he already knew the New York Times bestselling author of The Exorcist, Legion, The Ninth Configuration, Elsewhere, and many other acclaimed novels was a fascinating person, as well as one of our most acclaimed writers of the last fifty years.

What Freeman didn’t expect was how open Blatty would be about his entire life and every aspect of his career, including both the highs and the lows. What started as a simple interview turned into a 10,000 word career-spanning discussion that touches on just about every project Blatty has ever conceived.

Starting with Blatty’s appearance on You Bet Your Life through the writing of The Exorcist and concluding with his current projects and his thoughts on fate and life in general, there is something for every William Peter Blatty fan in this incredibly in-depth interview. • • Barnes & Noble • Kobo • iTunes/iBooks


The Painted Darkness Featured On IndieReader’s “Alike But Indie”

Some fun, unexpected news hit my inbox:

IndieReader has a regular feature called “Alike But Indie” where they select a bestselling traditionally published book and then list indies in the same (or similar) genre.

Yesterday, they posted “If You Liked Six Years, You’ll LOVE…”

The traditionally published book is Harlan Coben’s latest thriller, Six Years.

The independently published books they selected are:

Blood Money by Doug Richardson
Depth of Deception by Alexander Gallant
To Die For — a collection of 8 novels
Traces of Kara by Melissa Foster
The Summer We Lost Alice by Jan Strnad
The Painted Darkness by Brian James Freeman

Nice company on that list and a couple of new titles I’ve ordered to add to my To Be Read list. My thanks goes out to Keri English for including The Painted Darkness!
