Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet: Master of Plagues by D.B. Reynolds

YA Fantasy
Date Published: 8/16/2012

Mystical powers. Cosmic adventure. Universally dynamic forces. A gifted individual has been commissioned to take part in of all these phenomenal occurrences.
     Stuart Duffelmeyer is an NYU student who is targeted by eight of his egomaniacal college classmates once they learn he wants to find a beautiful date for the night. His classmates lure him to a sleazy motel where they play out a heinous prank. His night ends in utter disappointment after learning that his classmates only used him for their perverted entertainment purposes. Stuart suffered severely as a result of their callous behavior and feels he must get even with his tormentors.
     A chance encounter allows him to discover a magical Hebrew talisman with indescribable powers. Stuart is taken away from Earth and into the far regions of another galaxy once the talisman is consecrated. The spirit of his one-time chief advisor, Rabbi Irwin Wedemeyer, explains to him that the talisman will grant him miraculous powers over all the creatures and elements of the Earth. Rabbi Wedemeyer insists that Stuart not abuse the powers bestowed upon him. He returns to Earth and quickly seeks out his vengeance.
     Stuart’s absolute domination over Earthly creatures and elements brings plagues of unspeakable horrors into the lives of his one-time tormentors. He finds closure once his former college classmates return to offer their apologies to him. He also finds fulfillment by using his powers to intercept the transgressive acts inflicted by the immoral people of society. This stirring tale delivers the purest message of magic and morality.

#1— Do you see Writing as a Career?
I most certainly see writing as a career. I enjoy the challenges and rewards that come with writing. Being creative can be the most exhilarating feeling in the world. Having your readers enjoy what you’ve written can equally as enjoyable.

#2— What was the Hardest part of your Writing Process?
Writing a novel isn’t an easy process. I’d have to say that writing and re-writing, and then writing and re-writing some more, can be a daunting task. But when you enjoy what’re you’re doing, it makes writing and creating all the sweeter.

#3— Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
There were several people who helped me out. First, I had some co-workers to read some of my novel even before it was published. They really liked what they read. Next, I had a very talented English professor to edit the manuscript for my novel. She did a phenomenal job. My co-workers and the editor gave me valuable feedback, which helped me tremendously in the end.

#4— What is next for your writing?
There is so much more that I’d like to write about. Actually, I’d like to continue with more sequels to my fantasy novel, Master of Plagues. Stuart Duffelmeyer, the main character in Master of Plagues, has so much more to do. He has other planets and galaxies and Universes to explore and maintain order. I’d like to write several more novels outside of the others.

#5— Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?
I most definitely have an addiction to reading as well as writing. I’ve always been an avid reader of many different genres. A good book is a good book, no matter what genre it falls under. I’ve probably read well over 600 books in my lifetime. Currently, I am reading the novel, The Racketeer, by John Grisham.
