Interview with Jeremy Shory, author of The Orion Chronicles: The Journal of Forgotten Secrets
It’s about a teenager that finds himself inadvertently lured into a sadistic plan, a game of life and death, if you will, that was specifically designed for him by a mastermind thought to have vanished almost a hundred years ago. The more Orion dives into this evil scheme, the more he uncovers about his family and how everyone he’s ever known has been keeping dark secrets from him. Ultimately he decides he’s had enough and he decides he’s going to take matters into his own hands and start controlling his own fate. At least he thinks he is anyways.
What genre is it?
What kind of readers will it appeal to?
Complete this sentence for us: if you like _________________, you’ll love The Orion Chronicles.
How does this book set readers up for the rest of the series?
What can you tell us about book 2?
I fully expect for that to be completed and out in the public by late summer. It’ll introduce us to many new characters in Orion’s journey, as well as explain a little more about who he is and why everyone appears to be after him. If there was any book that I’d suggest you read it’d be that one. So stay tuned!
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m in the finance industry by day, but often dream about being home so I could be pounding away on my computer keyboard, whipping up a new story. I’m a huge football junkie (that’s football, not futbol). It is an American sport I suppose, but I love it. That’s actually where I cut my teeth in professional writing was for a college football website. Unfortunately the site is no longer around, but that gave me the push I needed to get going with Orion’s journey.
I love animals, especially dogs. I have two golden retrievers of my own; Sophie and Lily. I was raised in Orlando, Florida and have never really had a desire to move. I guess I look at it like people will travel thousands of miles to come to my city (to experience the theme parks, which I’m an avid attendee of by the way), why would I move away when I can enjoy the adventures in my own backyard?
I’m a very social person. I love to chat and make people laugh. That’s why I’m so active on Twitter. Some people use it as a soapbox to express their most recent political opinions or a forum for complaints. Me, I just like to meet people and talk about them and what they like. Hopefully I can throw a few jokes in there to keep it lighthearted, much like my own personality.
And my Facebook link is https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Orion-Chronicles/254014971329207 I’d love any follows or likes anyone is willing to give. I absolutely love interacting with people through Twitter, which is where I’m most active. I prefer to use social media to connect and chat with friends and fans than to constantly berate you with sales pitches, so hit me up. Hopefully I’ll be able to make you laugh.
Do you have a website?
