If you are a fan of historical thrillers and haven’t read “30 Pieces of Silver” by Carolyn McCray – well, you need to fix that. It’s one of the more entertaining and original takes on the genre I’ve read in a long while (you can find my review of it here).
I was lucky enough to have the chance to chat with Carolyn recently. We covered everything from how she approaches writing, her experience in self-publishing, the shocking ending to the book, and – of course – the impending zombie apocalypse. Enjoy!
Sometimes you find books in the most unusual ways – a suggestion from a friend, a good review online, a random search on Amazon. I’ve discovered books in all of those ways, and many more, but “30 Pieces of Silver” is the first book I’ve ever found because of Twitter. It was a good find.
One of my favorite authors is James Rollins. At the end of February, he tweeted a recommendation for a book he had just provided a blurb for. That book was “30 Pieces of Silver” by Carolyn McCray. Having enjoyed Rollins’ work in the past, I decided to head over to Amazon and download the first chapter to see if the book was worth reading. It hooked me right away and I quickly found the full-length book hurtling towards my Kindle through the ether.
