Release Day Blitz Interview - The Last Line of a Goat Song by Jonathan Doyle

RR: Are you currently binge watching anything on Netflix, Hulu (or elsewhere)?
What keeps you glued to the screen? 

Jon Doyle: The Crown, Lady Dynamite, Peaky Blinders to name a few

RR: Do you prefer movies or TV series?

JD: TV. By a mile.

RR: When it comes to reading do you prefer standalones or series?

JD : Stand alones. I can’t get into trilogies. I wish I could write them though! $$$ (Though I loved the Vampire Chronicles. And Harry Potter. This interview is revealing a side of me I didn’t know existed!)
RR: Do you prefer to start new book series when the first book is released or do you want for a several books in the series to be released so you can binge read?

JD: See my answer above for the answer to that! But if so, I’d always start with the first book and calmly wait for the others to come out.

RR: What are some of your hobbies, interests or guilty pleasures?

JD: Running, and again, watching TV. I’m a basketball junkie. In particular the Lakers. In fact all sports. Other than that? I’m pretty boring!

RR: What's your guilty “nerd” pleasure?

JD: I often say I don’t speak geek. I guess the aforementioned Harry Potter is as geeky as it gets for me.

RR: Have you ever peeked at the ending of a book?

JD: No! Sacrilege.

RR: When it comes to your own writing are you a plotter or a panster?

JD: I think plotting is very important. So a plotter, but I’m not afraid to panster every now and then.

   “I’m leaving Monster.” Maggie said. She lit a cigarette that William didn’t know she possessed.
   William put down his journal. He looked over at her with a raised eyebrow,
   “I’m done with him.”
   She loved men like a tourist, William understood. She saw the best in them, was fascinated by their history and etymology, took tours and learned the topography, the geography. Then she left after three days, or a week, or maybe three months. She took pictures, she bought postcards, but she always left.

   “He has a problem with drugs. I deserve something more than that.”
