The author of The Beta-Earth Chronicles, Wesley Britton, is here with us today. Tell us about yourself and what inspired you to start writing.

I’ve been writing non-fiction, poetry, and sci fi for a very long time now–since 1983. A writer must write, and so I do. Fiction allows me to have free reign with my imagination, so that’s where I’m at now.

How did you go about getting published?

For non-fiction, I kept submitting to publishers who dealt with sort of thing. For fiction, I went to the publisher of my last non-fiction book who believed in me so we’re still together.

What is your writing process? Do you have a time, day or place you like to write?

I write all the time. I wrote the novels in chunks after th Beta-Earth storyline and characters came to me in a rush some years back. Then I revise, revise, revise.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing? Full-time job, pets, hobbies?

Read. I read a lot on a number of areas.

What’s your all time favorite animal? It can be mythical.

Dogs and cats, equally.

Do you have a favorite myth? If so, tell us about it!

The story of Persephone in Greek mythology.

Any marketing tips you’d like to share with other authors?

Network, network, network. Like doing this interview.

Aawwe, thanks. I’m afraid that’s about all we have time for. Before you go, tell us about your next book project and give us a couple of links to find you at.

Book six of the Beta-Earth Chronicles, Return to Alpha, is in the hands of an editor friend of mine. Next year, the five ebooks are coming out as paperbacks–really looking forward to that!
