Author Interview with Cesar





K.S.  Hello and welcome to the blog. I am very excited to have you here. Why don’t we start off with a small introduction? Tell us a little about yourself. 

Hello and thanks for having me, well my name is Cesar and I live in Ireland, I'm a very humble man trying to make my way through life as best I can.  I have a wonderful daughter who's turning nine this year and I'm so very proud of her, she is a big inspiration that shows me how wonderful life can be.

K.S.  Any interesting writing quirks or stories you would like to share with my readers?

If I let myself get carried away I will find myself staying up all night writing away with a cup of coffee to hand, only to realize how late it is when the sun comes up.

K.S.  When did you realize you wanted to be a writer? What sparked the desire to pen your first novel?

Well I had lost my job, and suddenly had heaps of time on my hands, and for years I had the thoughts of writing a book but I had never got around to it.  So one day I decided to use my time constructively and picked up a pen and started to write.

K.S.  What genre do you write?

This is my first published book but to be honest I don't stick to one particular genre, this book is simply about prophecies but I also enjoy writing YA fiction, psychological twisting stories, poetry and even a bit of romance.

K.S.  What would you say has inspired you most in your writing career? Or, who is your favorite author and why?

Well one story of inspiration is of course JK Rowling who wrote because she loved to write and finally had a manuscript taken up by a publisher and now she has to be one of the single most enjoyed authors in the world today, I think her story of refusing to give up after the rejection letters is an inspiration for all writers.

K.S.  What does your family think of your writing?

The support of family is very important, I often talk to my daughter about stories I am thinking about and stories I am writing, but as soon as I do, she will often start telling me about stories that she is writing and then I don't get a word in edge-ways.  The rest of my family are proud of course, and my friends ask me to sign their copies.

K.S.  What was one of the most surprising things you learned while creating your book/s?

We have all heard the saying 'the pen is mightier than the sword' but there is another level of understanding that writers come to; the realization that when you write fiction, you can take someone from your life that maybe you're not very fond of and put them into your story with an unlimited option of outcomes.

K.S.  What inspires you?

Dreams are the source of inspiration for this book, but I also find them inspiration for my fiction stories, the mind has a depth of imagination that can make great books.

K.S.  Can you tell us a little about any of your novels?

Book of Prophecies is my first published book, it is a collection of brand new prophecies about things that are destined to happen in the world, including the economy, wars, disasters, terrorist attacks and even nuclear disaster.  This is the first book of prophecies to be published since Nostradamus, although, many people have published books about prophecies, they are simply based upon prophecies told hundreds of years ago.  I would like to give you a snippet of the first prophecy from the book:
(i)
The business of the States which are United,
Will be deemed most successful,
It will be stable for many years,
But be warned as poverty follows,
In the eagerness to overcome the problems,
An event will occur which will consume its sons,
Only hard work to undo your errors,
Will bring any luck

K.S.  Where can we buy your novel?

Book of prophecies is available on all online bookstores, however the best deal is at https://www.createspace.com/3719608  where you can buy the special edition for $9.99

K.S.  Do you have a website, fan site, or Blog that we can visit?

Well after I had finished my book, I started doing research into ancient prophecies and started to Blog about it, the link to my Blog is

K.S.  Do you have any closing advice to aspiring writers?

To write then to write more and never give up, even after rejection letters.

Excellent interview Cesar. I love the fact that when we write fiction we can take those we are not fond of and, well you're right, come up with a million outcomes *giggles*. That's the best part of writing. Thank you for hosting Katie, great job.
