Author Spotlight: Eloise J. Knapp
Today I'm introducing you to the lovely and extremely talented Eloise J. Knapp and her novel-- Pulse. Not only is she a damn fine writer, but her artwork is to die for! I predict great things for this woman in the not so distant future.
Pulse is currently sitting in the top #100 for post-apocalyptic and horror, where she's been for nearly a month, I highly recommend buying this book before the price goes up.

Genre of writing:
Can you name the last three books you read?
Rag Men by Rocky Alexander, Suffer the Children by Craig DiLouie, and Tooth & Nail by DiLouie also.
Can you name the next three books you will be reading?
I’ll be reading a beta version of Jim LaVigne’s next book, and after that whatever happens to be on my Kindle (there’s a lot!).
New author finds of 2013-2014 and those that you look forward to hearing more from?
I started reading Laura Lippman’s crime drama novels in 2013 so I’m looking forward to her new stuff this year.
Other than writing, what do you do?
I do hot yoga, maintain a YouTube channel, and a little bit of cosplay. I’m also pretty dang good at baking and cooking. To be honest, I just graduated from Seattle University so “real life” is still sinking in. I work part time photographing handmade and benchmade knives.
What’s do you think is the hardest thing about writing?
Motivation. Some days I just don’t want to write, whether it’s because I don’t have any ideas or I’m suffering from writer’s block. Nowadays I’m better at forcing myself to write no matter what (you can always edit later), but it has always been a struggle for me ever since the beginning.
Tell us about your latest book?
Brief run down in your own words:
Pulse is about a mutated parasite that sweeps the nation. One of the side effects the parasite causes is for people to become deranged, usually extremely violent. The novel focuses on a few different character’s perspective as the infection takes hold of the country.
I self-published this one.
Anything in particular that you want to say about it? Where did you get the inspiration from? Favourite characters? Tell us something unusual.
This book was inspired by a very vivid dream I had about a parasite that eats you from the inside out. I had a really strong idea of how I wanted to write a book about it, but I felt conflicted because I knew I needed to write the last book in my Cyrus V. Sinclair trilogy. A friend at a convention told me I needed to give in, knock the book out, so I could put all my energy into the last book. I followed his advice and am extremely happy I did.
What are you working on next and when can we expect to get our greedy little mitts on it?
As of today, I’m 85% done with the first draft of the last book in my trilogy! Woot! I can’t guarantee an exact date, but probably next year.
