Inside The Mind of a Madman – Q&A

There’s nothing like an inside scoop.  Being able to go behind the scenes and get answers that nobody else has is always cool, which is why I’ve always loved interviews and Q&As.  Maybe I’m a bit narcissistic (I’ve been accused of as much, lol), but I like being asked questions about my work.  It’s honestly because I love what I do, so naturally, I love being able to talk about it. It’s not narcissism, it’s passion.  Don’t confuse the two.  Writing is what I do, it’s my passion in life outside of loving my family, so talking about it gets me fired up.  It gets me excited, and I honestly could answer questions about it all day every day (if you have questions about writing, or publishing, or anything writing related, ask me!  I love this stuff!)  So, below you’ll find a few questions I’ve received since I started the beta/ARC process for Madman (Love & Chaos #1), and I’m expanding on the answers specifically for this blog post.  Solomon and his intense, psychotic personality have been the most frequent topic, so I decided to give my readers & book fans some insight on Solomon King.  Step inside the mind of a madman

Q:   Wow!  I just finished Madman, and Solomon is my favorite thing in the world right now!  You did a great job with him.  What on earth made you come up with a character like him?

A:  Lol!  Well, thank you!  He’s by far my favorite character of all time, hands down.  Solomon is actually the culmination of a few ideas.  First off, I’ve been craving a character like him since I started writing.  I’ve always thought that James Patterson was dope, and the way he created so many stories for Alex Cross was always awesome to me.  I’ve been wanting a character that I loved more than all the others for a while, but every other character I made just didn’t check all the boxes of the type of guy who I’d never get tired of writing.  Solomon checks off all the boxes.

Secondly, I originally got the personality for Solomon from a movie.  We took the family to go see Suicide Squad, and seeing Jared Leto’s version of the Joker really got me thinking.  I wanted to create a complete psycho who was wild and unpredictable just like the Joker.  I wanted a completely insane, psychopath, who isn’t interested in redeeming himself in the eyes of the reader.  He’s too crazy to care about whether the reader will like his actions or not.  He will set your house on fire with you in it, then laugh as he watches it burn, all while still being completely in love with his woman!  How dope is that?!  I didn’t want the violent side of Joker & Harley’s relationship, but I wanted their passionate, insane love, and that’s how Solomon King and Madman were born.

Q: I don’t know how you did it, but you somehow managed to push the limits of how far a character could go without making me think it was too far.  Were you ever worried that readers would think Solomon goes too far?

A:  Definitely not.  I took a break from writing before I was able to really dive into Madman, and during that break I fell into a new mindset about writing.  I realized that my passion for writing could only be properly fueled by the freedom to write what I want, how I want.  I can’t love it if I can’t express myself through it freely.  So, when I started getting into writing Madman, I decided that it was going to be no holds barred.  Solomon is a psycho, so there’s no such thing as going too far to him.  he doesn’t put limits on himself at all, and to him, he’s unstoppable.  He does what he wants, and dares someone to challenge him on it.  The only redeeming quality he really has is that he’s in love with Reina.  That’s all I wanted him to have.  His other character traits are perfect to me.  He’s a madman, through & through.

Q: This book really has a Joker/Harley type feel to it.  Is that on purpose?

A: Yep.  What’s more entertaining and fun to write than two psychos who are in love?!  The series title, Love & Chaos, couldn’t have been more perfect.  That’s what Reina and Solomon are, they are love & chaos personified.

Q:  Was it difficult writing Solomon’s eccentric, erratic, violent, yet genius personality?  He’s crazy and smart at the same time.

A: Nah, I wouldn’t say it was difficult.  it was more fun than anything else.  I tend to write in the male POV because I like becoming my characters.  I didn’t get to become an actor in life, so I kind of live out that dream by becoming these book characters and seeing how deep I go.  So, it was a blast being able to become Solomon and say craziness that I knew I would never say myself.  After he’d say or do something crazy, I’d read it back and laugh to myself, thinking, “Holy shit this guy is nuts, and I love it!”

Q: How many books do you have planned for the Love & Chaos Series?

A:  I don’t know, but I feel like these characters could go on for a long time.  I love them so much, I couldn’t bear to see them go anytime soon.  The possibilities for these two are endless, and I already have 3 more story lines for them, and all 3 of them absolutely have to become novels, plus I’m already writing a novella between books 1 & 2.  I may take a break from them and write another story in 2019, but I’ll come back to them after that.  I fell in love with Solomon & Reina.  They made me love writing in a way I hadn’t yet discovered.  I owe it to them to keep them alive and use them as a way to re-ignite my fire if ever it starts to get tired and burn out.

You Want An Author You Can Trust To ALWAYS Deliver. And You’ve Found Him.

You know, I think we’re all looking for something that’s dependable in this book world of ours.  It’s hard to find, honestly.  I’ve liked certain authors only for them to drop a book that I think is terrible and never be able to return to their former glory in my eyes.  As authors, we try so hard to please our readers.  We go out of our way to write what we think our readers will love instead of just writing what WE love.  Sounds simple, but when you’re an author, being 100% true to yourself can be a real challenge.  That’s why I’m glad I had 2017 to put things into perspective for me.

2017: The Year of Nothing & Everything

For the first time since I started writing in 2013, a year went by without me publishing a book.  As you know, I went through some personal hell and had to fight my way through it (I’m still not even all the way through it yet!).  But in that struggle, I got to sit back and watch the book world revolve, and I got to think about myself as an author.  I got to review everything I’d ever written, evaluate it, pick it all apart, laugh at myself, get pissed at myself, and promise to come back as a brand new author for readers.  By doing nothing, I learned everything.  By the time I started writing Madman (again), I felt like I was doing it for the first time.  I was 100% locked in as I brought Solomon King to life and let go of every inhibition I had before him.  Now that Madman is done, I can never go back to whatever the hell I was feeling and doing before Solomon King forced his way into my life.  Ever.  Thanks to him, I’m ready to do what I love, exactly how I want to do it.

I’m committed to writing in a way I was never even close to before Solomon.  I feel like me and writing were just dating before, but we got married over my break in 2017, and now it has made me a brand new man.  Writing is everything to me, and that includes more than just novels.  It means novels, novellas, short stories, poems, and whatever the hell else I want to write.  This blog will expand to become all the things I have in my head that I want to get out through writing.  Some things will be saved for publishing, others will be things exclusive to this blog.  Because…

This Is What I Do

Before my surgery, I was big into lifting weights.  I actually was an amateur bodybuilder from 2006 to late 2016 when my back flipped the script on me.  I was dedicated to that long before I ever thought to write Frozen Secrets.  When my back changed the game on me, it set me free.  My love for lifting weights and standing on a stage rocking nothing but a Speedo was suppressed because I knew my body couldn’t handle it anymore.  Having to give that up left an opening in me, and it wasn’t until my spinal surgery and the recovery thereafter that I figured out how to fill the void bodybuilding left.  I’ve filled it now with writing.  I’ve loved it since I was in the 5th grade, when I was writing poems for girls and songs for my friends.  I’ve been good at this since I was 11 years old, and for the first time in my life, I’m dedicated to it–to perfecting it!  This is what I do.  I write dope ass books, and from now on, they are gonna sell their asses off, because the stories I have in me are infinite and absolute FIRE!

I found some stuff online about an author named Octavia Butler.  She was a bestselling science fiction writer who had a notebook (or a few notebooks) that she wrote in all the time.  When I saw a screenshot of one of the pages from this notebook, I lost my mind!  The woman had literally written down exactly what she was going to become as an author, and why.  She brought her dreams to life through her love for the written word and hard work.  So, I’ll wrap this blog post up with the screenshot of her notebook that helped to flip a brand new switch within me.  I am a writer.  This is what I do.  You can count on me to do it and be dope as fuck at it.  And my success hasn’t even begun yet.  2018 is the beginning of my ascent.  See To It!!

Cover Reveal for Madman (Love & Chaos #1)!

“When I took my break away from the book world, I knew I had to come back with a vengeance.  Madman is my vengeance!

Check out the cover for the first book in my new series, Madman (Love & Chaos #1)!”

~ WS Greer ~

 

Release Date: February 5th, 2018

SYNOPSIS

People fear what they don’t understand. Maybe that’s why they all fear me. I’m sure they have their reasons, I just couldn’t possibly care what any of them are. As long as they’re afraid.
Born to a drug dealer father and a drug addict mother, I’ve been through enough to make a normal person lose their mind five times over. I’m not normal. Normal is for weak people, and I’m anything but weak.

My childhood was made of nightmares, but there was one light in all my darkness. Her name was Reina Wilde, and when my mother would hit me or pass out in the middle of the living room on her high, I would confide in her. We were from completely different worlds, but she meant something to me, though I never figured out what, because she left. In the years that followed, I built a reputation for myself, and let go of any and all deluded notions of love.

I’ll never go straight now. It’s just too much fun taking things from people who are powerless to stop me. And make no mistake about it, I take what I want, from who I want, when I want.

I’m infamous in this city. But everything changes when, after years apart, I finally see Reina again, and she’s standing next to my enemy–the underboss of the Philadelphia mob.

It’s not just about power anymore. It’s not about respect. No, this is personal now.
Gasoline has been thrown on the flame, and for Reina, I’m about to burn the whole world to the ground.

A Message From The Author

“It’s been a long time coming for this book/series.  I started writing Madman in September of 2016, so to see it all coming together so perfectly feels awesome.  The character I created for this series is named Solomon King, and he and his woman, Reina Wilde, are a perfection combination.  They are fire & gasoline, TNT with the fuse set ablaze.  It’s love for the two of them, and chaos for everyone around them.  They will set the world on fire and watch the ashes pile up around them.  I don’t need to keep going on and on about them.  On February 5th, they’re gonna speak for themselves, and once you hear Solomon, you’ll never forget him!”

I Left the Book Game for Nearly a Year. Here’s Why.

2017 has kicked the crap outta me.

I started writing Madman (Love & Chaos #1) in September of 2016, but I put it on hold so that I could write Red Snow and have it released by the end of that year.  Once Red Snow dropped, I wanted to pick Madman back up, but my spine had other ideas.  I had a nerve being pinched by 2 discs in my spine, and it was causing some major pain & numbness in my right leg & foot.  So, the Air Force, after countless spinal injections and physical therapy, finally decided to give me spinal surgery.

So, I dropped everything and had my back cut open on April 28th, and spent the summer trying to recover.  I wasn’t getting any writing done, and the Air Force decided since I got my surgery, they wanted to make sure I was still capable of being an Airmen at all.  So, they started making me jump through tons of hoops to see if I can still do my job, and I’ve been fighting for months trying to prove myself, while also still trying to recover from the surgery.  It’s been a real bitch.

But the good news is that years of bodybuilding and protein have made me pretty damn strong, so when the Air Force started testing me, I started grinding.  I got off my ass and started working out and eating right again.  I lost some body fat, got my cardio on and passed the shit out of an Air Force PT test with a score of 92.8!  Not to toot my own horn, but I killed that shit.  Passing a full test 7 months after having surgery on your spine isn’t exactly the norm.  Plus, I did it while writing the book I’ve been working on for over a year now.  As I traveled on the plane coming back from seeing the VA in California, I finished writing Madman!  I still don’t have an answer from the Air Force regarding whether or not I can stay in, but passing that test was extremely important and gives me a great chance at saving my career.

So, needless to say, it’s been a bitch, but I’ve been fighting and working.  I couldn’t be prouder of what I’ve been able to accomplish since the surgery, and that’s why this book is so special and important to me.  I wrote this novel while struggling through the roughest year of my career, so to see it wrapping up now feels amazing.  Madman is BY FAR the best thing I’ve ever written, so now that I’m back in the book world, I couldn’t be happier about the work I’m coming back with.  I’ve got a cover reveal coming up, ARCs coming in December, and a ton of teasers to get you just as hyped as I am about this novel/series.  So get ready book world, I’m back!

Cover RE-Reveal for Long Live the King

FINALLY!!  After lots of thought, and a ton of ridiculous waiting for Amazon to get their head out of their asses, I’m finally able to bring you the cover re-reveal for Long Live the King!!  Check this baby out!

15784778_1842992729278201_1195830220_o

Oh I just love it so much!!  I have to give big, huge, props to my designer, Robin, for being so incredibly, insanely talented.  All I have to do is show her a pic and mention my vision, and she brings the whole thing to life in no time at all.  It’s been a great 3 and a half years working with her, and I wouldn’t use another cover designer if my life depended on it.  Fuck it, kill me, but I’m using Robin!

longlivetheking_ecover

So I decided to redo the cover for LLTK after l took a look at the cover of Kingpin, and kept thinking about how much more I liked that cover over the LLTK cover.  Then I remembered how I did something I knew I didn’t want to do originally.  I always wanted the same model for the two covers, but I went against my gut, and that’s a no-no.  So, I took it back to where it needed to go, and this book now has the type of cover the story needs.

This series is soooooo good!  It’s the best thing I’ve published so far, and my favorite published book with my favorite published characters (notice I keep saying “published”? New awesomeness is on the way.  Solomon says Hi, by the way :)).  So to commemorate the release of the new cover, I’m putting both books in the series on sale for 99¢!  So head on over to Amazon, B&N, iBooks, or Kobo, and one-click Kingpin and Long Live the King right now!!  Dominic and Alananah’s story is amazing, and you can get it now on sale!!  Go one-click!

WS in 2017

Well, 2016 is coming to a close and it was a big year.  Tons and tons of books came out that did really well and grabbed a lot of peoples attention, and my book, Kingpin (An Italian Mafia Romance), was one of those big books of 2016. 13180926_1736689803241828_1586459477_n

I was so proud to see it do well and finally get me some attention that I’ve been hoping for for a long time. So I just want to say Thank You to all of my fans for making that book do as well as it did.

But now we are moving onto 2017, and I am excited just like people usually are at the end of the year when they get their New Year’s resolutions together. For me and my family, it’s going to be a big year for us anyway, because we are finally moving away from the island of Guam and officially going back to the United States!  We don’t know where in the states we’re going to live, but we do know that we are going back to the states, and that means book signings and being able to communicate on social media at a time that isn’t 2 o’clock in the morning for me and my wife!  This move is going to be great for us from a business standpoint, so now that we know that it’s official and we have no other option, I am excited about it and can’t wait to see how it positively affects what we’re doing in the book world. We have three book signings already locked in for 2017: Vegas in August, Phoenix in September, Manchester in November, which we are beyond excited about!  So we can’t wait to get out there and see our fans, and give autographs, and do meet & greets and just have a great time being published authors in this amazing indie community.

The books that I have planned to publish in 2017 are stories that I am so excited to write!  All of them are what I like to call Alpha Romantic Suspense, where it’s romantic suspense but the lead male character is an alpha bad ass who doesn’t take any shit and is ride or die for his woman like no other!  I learned a lot from the three books I published in 2016, and I plan on using everything that I learned this year to make every book that I publish next year my best books yet, starting with Madman (A Wilde King Novel).

2017 will be a big year for the #AuthorPowerCouple!  Writing and game-planning has already begun. 2017 is curtains up for me, personally. Enjoy the show!
