Title: The Descending Darkness

Author: Michael Chulsky

Series: Stand Alone

Genre: Sci-Fantasy (Science Fiction/Fantasy)

Publisher: Rocking Horse Publishing

Release Date: Sept 28 2013


Seventeen-year-old bounty hunter SHADOW is about to lose his mind. One week he's killing demons and other creatures. The next, he has ten super-powered teenagers in his care. Shadow needs their help, because without them he can’t hope to complete his mission. But he’s never dealt with other teenagers before. He’s always been a loner. Heck, he’s tried the whole having-a-pet thing. It died.

Shadow’s mission: save the world and ensure his entire team survives the potential apocalypse. If MAEDARA, self-proclaimed fashionista, Queen of Evil, and diva extraordinaire wasn’t trying to rule the world, it’d be cake. Now, not only does Shadow have to deal with teens more concerned with going to the mall than fighting evil, but also a villain who, in his opinion, makes Lady Gaga look like Mother Theresa.

1. Tell us 5 things that make you happy.
(1) Writing.
(2) My Fiancé
(3) Cheesecake
(4) Reading
(5) Listening to music.
2. What makes your perfect man, perfect? What do you look for in a hero?
My ideal hero needs to be brave and smart. I think that bravery and intelligence are the two most important attributes that a person can have.

3. What qualities make up your least favorite heroine?
Well, I was raised by a few strong women. I guess they kind of rubbed off on me because I like a tough girl – I can’t stand damsels in distress. I know that not everyone is tough and weakness is okay, but it just appeals to me more when a person harnesses their inner strength and kicks ass.
4. Do you have any quirks? When writing, or otherwise?
When writing, if someone talks to me it totally throws me off and I tend to get very snippy.

5. Do you have any hobbies that you take part in when you aren’t writing?
I like collecting things. Specifically: hats, comic books, beanie babies, and some other things. I also like playing video games.

6. What do you like to read?
I like to read romance and anything that has love in it. I have major respect for romance writers because love is in short supply and they supplement the world with it.

7. If you had to pick one of your characters to survive a zombie apocalypse with, who would it be and why?
I would have to choose Shadow. If anything were to happen to me, he could always turn me into a vampire and I’d be fine! ^.^

8. Tell us a bit about how the idea for your book came about.
I’ve always been into different media (tv shows, books, movies, etc) that had teenagers acquire super powers. It’s just so fascinating to me. As time went on, my imagination took me on a journey to a different world and my “imaginary friends” lived there. They told me their story and I knew that I had to write it.

9. Which of the seven deadly sins are you most partial to? Which do you indulge in the most?
I’d have to say lust or wrath. And I indulge in lust the most.

10. Who is the person who most inspired you? Either in your life, or writing?
I’m inspired most by my friends and family. I’m also inspired by anyone who has the courage to stand up for what they believe in.

11. Do you have a favourite quote?

My favorite quote from any source:

Love mattered, in the end. A house without love would always fall, maybe not today or tomorrow, but in the end without love nothing could endure. – Laurell K. Hamilton, Bullet.
My favorite quote from my novel:

“I despise your mother.”
“My mother?”
“Yes, she gave birth to you; therefore, by extension, she’s the cause of all my suffering. It’s all her fault and I just want her dead.”
“Master, she’s already dead. You killed her, remember?”
“Oh isn’t that just great? You’re motherless and I’m unhappy. This world sucks.”

12. Can you tell us a little about your latest project?
My latest project is my novel! :P

But for the future, I’m working on an anthology. =)

13. Last but not least, if you could be anyone else in the world, who would it be, and why? If I could be anyone else in the world…I’d be my celebrity crush. Why? Because then I could just stare at myself naked all day. ;)
 Thank you so much for talking to me!
