Interview – 

  1. What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?

What a great question. Breakfield and Burkey began writing technical documentation many years ago. Armed with the technical expertise we delivered many technical workshops all over the world for leaders in technology.

Technical documentation is, well, boring, so we decided to take the best of our technical expertise and leverage it into completing technology-based scenarios relevant to today. The Enigma Series was born. There are ten books currently available in the series, each with a technical focal point like Identity Theft, or how AI steals our future. The first 7 in the series are in audible formats primarily narrator by our amazing voice actor Derek Shoales.

  1. What is the first book that made you cry?

Collectively for Breakfield and Burkey we agreed it was Old Yeller. What’s not to make one cry with a beloved companion of a boy and all the drama this story takes the reader or audience through. Gheez, we still tear up thinking about portions of it.

This is also what we find Derek does with portions of our stories in brining emotions to high alert for humor, reflection or sadness. Our stories have a technology foundation then we layer on travel, intrigue, mystery, romance, and a dash of humor. We have found that migrating the story to audible provides a more immersive story and love it.

  1. What is the most unethical practice in the publishing industry?

This is such a hard question. Organizations are in business to make money so that’s how they are constructed. The unethical doesn’t seem to come so much from the industry but rather from those bad actors who take advantage of authors who want options on book publishing. There are horror stories are as plentiful as stars in the sky.

As an example, when we started down the paths of investigating audio formats for ours, we had zero experience, as we didn’t even listen to audio books. We had some awesome guidance and then found for us the best connection was via ACX from a quality perspective. The methods for altering the rights is in the fine print, so reading all the documents is key.

  1. Does writing energize or exhaust you?

Breakfield and Burkey are both energized by creating compelling stories and then sharing them. We find that offering the books in ebook, paperback, and, yes, audio formats for the first 7, number 8 The Enigma Broker is being produced with delivery in the Spring 2019. What is exhausting is some of the marketing aspects like asking for reviews from listeners and readers to share with others. We have recently earning a Crowned Heart from InD’Tale Magazine for The Enigma Stolen audio, which of course reenergizes us while we are crafting number 11, working title The Enigma A.I. Wars.

  1. What are common traps for aspiring writers?

Traps, hummm. We find the common traps including thinking if we write it they will come. Nothing says just because someone wrote a book everyone will buy it. In fact we find that the 80/20 rule applies significantly for authors in that 80 percent marketing to 20 percent of generating an amazing book. Adding the layer of getting the book transformed into an audio format requires even more marketing. We love to reach out to readers/listeners, but without the reviews and feedback we are never certain who we are successfully reaching.
