Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet - Anstractor Vestalia by Greg Dragon

Sci-Fi Romance

Date Published: 1/6/2014

: Born an outcast, raised a soldier, and chosen as a savior. Rafian VCA is humanity's only hope against a vicious new race of predators aimed at taking over the galaxy of Anstractor. In Anstractor: Vestalia, the first book by author Greg Dragon, the planet of Vestalia has been completely taken over by the Geralos. After losing their home and being forced into space, the revengeful Marines of Vestalia decide to take the fight back to the Geralos and win their planet back.


#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

That would be the dream now wouldn’t it? Well I do see writing as a career but not solely based on novels. I actively blog and help people through my blog writing so I can see somewhat of a career spawning from that combined with the Anstractor series and other books in my future.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

Finding the time and place to commit to writing. Right now like many other people in the workforce my entire life is consumed with mundane things done for money. When I was not working, there was the social demand of being available for my girlfriend, so getting a good chunk of time for Anstractor was a challenge. What I started to do to fix this was to post up at a bookstore with my laptop when work ended and lock in 2-3 hours of focused writing. I would turn on John Coltrane, Duke Ellington, and sometimes Mozart to drown out people talking and try my best to get it done.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?


#4 – What is next for your writing?

Mainly, I am working on the sequel to Anstractor, a book called “Man of Vestalia” (for now) which dives more into the lore of the galaxy, and the history of the situation. I love "world building" and Anstractor was such a relationship book... not saying that there won't be a lot of romance in the new book, but I am writing more of what makes things tick in this one and I am extremely excited about it. I am also doing some short stories that I will release periodically on the page. These shorts are side stories about some of the people or technology within the book series and will give people more insight into the more understated characters.

Lastly, to complement my blogging, I am writing a self-help book for young men to help them be more comfortable in their skin, gain confidence, and be a better version of themselves. This has been a project I've been working on for a few years so I am not really sure when it will be at a point where I can consider it complete.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

I am a reading machine, I LOVE books. Right now I am reading a lot of marketing books, one being APE by Guy Kawasaki… almost done with that one. I am also reading “On Writing” by Stephen King which is an absolutely amazing book if you are a fan of his. It really gives you an intimate look at who Stephen King is, where he came from, and why he is such a special writer. On the fun side, I have a few pages left in Terry Brooks’ The Measure of The Magic and I plan to move on to something by one of my fellow Indie Authors next… title to be determined.
