Moses Siregar III, author of The Black God’s War, shares his thoughts on what it was like to pen the story of a war where the reader sympathizes with both sides. I tease him about it being torture, but really it was a compelling, unique read that kept me in my seat for twelve hours to finish. This is the first of five video interviews, each around 15 minutes, that you can view on my You Tube channel. If you haven’t read The Black God’s War, I heartily recommend picking it up (my 5 star review). The ebook version is only $.99 at this time.
Moses is one of the co-hosts of my favorite podcast, Adventures in SciFi Publishing, and in celebration of the one year anniversary of The Black God’s War being released, he will be posting the first six chapters of book two, The God’s Divided, on his Facebook page within the next few days.
Questions for discussion:
If you read Moses’s book, how do you feel he treated both sides? Did you have a favorite? Did you like how he made both sides sympathetic?
Do you like books where both sides are sympathetic, or do you prefer to only see one side of the battle?
