Author Interview: Best Seller by Timothy B. Sagges

Welcome to Author Timothy Sagges

Fifty-year-old actor, director and playwright, Tim Sagges has been tormented by a series of recurring night terrors since 1967, long before there was a name for such a curse. It is only recently that he has found the courage to formulate some of these visions into works of literature. In an effort to purge himself of the unrelenting horror of his dreams, he has created Best Seller, the first in a series of nightmares exorcised from his mind and onto the page.
He is currently the owner of Eye Candy Vision in Philadelphia.

Interview:
If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?
INTO THE FUTURE. I REALLY WANT TO SEE WE MANKIND EVER GETS A HANDLE ON THINGS LIKE GLOBAL WARMING AND THE DEPLETION OF FOSSIL FUELS.

What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
POP TARTS

Night owl, or early bird?
NIGHT OWL

Skittles or M&Ms?
M&MS

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
YOU SHOULD READ MY BOOK BECAUSE IT IS SO CRAZY ORIGINAL.

Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?
CURRENTLY WORKING ON A SCREEN ADAPTATION OF “BEST SELLER” AND I RECENTLY FINISHED ANOTHER SCREEN PLAY ENTITLED, “TAPE.”

What inspired you to want to become a writer?
IT’S MORE LIKE A “WHO” THAT INSPIRED ME. HER NAME WAS MISS FLETCHER, MY SIXTH GRADE TEACHER. WHENEVER SHE GAVE A WRITING ASSIGNMENT, SHE WOULD SINGLE ME OUT TO READ MINE IN FRONT OF THE CLASS. BACK THEN, I THOUGHT SHE WAS BEING A BITCH AND PICKING ON ME, BUT I WOULD LATER LEARN THAT SHE GENUINELY THOUGHT I WROTE WELL.

Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published.
WALKING TO WORK A FEW MONTHS AGO, A STRANGER ON THE STREET STOPPED ME AND SAID, “HEY, YOU WROTE THAT BOOK DIDN’T YOU?” I GUESS IT REALLY ONLY SPEAKS TO HOW MUCH I LOOK LIKE THE PHOTO ON THE BACK COVER, BUT I BEAMED THE REST OF THE DAY JUST THE SAME.

If you could jump in to a book, and live in that world.. which would it be?
STEPHEN KING’S “THE STAND.” I COULD HAVE DONE WITHOUT ALL OF THE GOOD VS. EVIL STUFF, BUT THE IDEA OF STARTING OVER WITH A BIG EMPTY PLANET REALLY EXCITES ME.

What was your favorite book when you were a child/teen?
“MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS” – IT WAS THE FIRST BOOK I EVER READ WITHOUT BEING TOLD I HAD TO READ IT. I HAVE A FONDNESS TOWARD IT, EVEN TODAY. IMAGINE MY DELIGHT/HORROR WHEN IT WAS RECENTLY MADE INTO A MOVIE.

What is your favorite Quote?
GETTING OLD IS NOT FOR PUSSIES (Bette Davis)

What’s the craziest writing idea you’ve had?
I WAKE UP WITH SO VERY MANY CRAZY IDEAS. I LITERALLY HAVE A LIST OF THOSE IDEAS THAT ARE WAITING TO HAVE A STORY WRITTEN ABOUT THEM. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS, SOME ARE SO STRANGE, THAT I’M ALMOST EMBARRASSED TO EXPOUND ON THEM, MUCH LESS PUT MY NAME THEM.

What’s the best advice anyone has ever given you?
LIFE ISN’T FAIR.

How do you react to a bad review?
I TAKE MY TIME AND ORCHESTRATE THE PERFECT REVENGE…(kidding)…ACTUALLY I GAVE UP TRYING TO PLEASE EVERYONE ALL THE TIME. OPINIONS, REACTIONS AND OVERALL TASTE IS DIFFERENT FOR EVERYONE AND THEREFORE I FULLY EXPECT THAT SOME FOLKS JUST WON’T LIKE WHAT I DO.

If you were a super hero what would your kryptonite be?
LOVE. I’M PUTTY IN THE HANDS OF THE ONE I LOVE.

If you could have a signed copy of any novel what would it be and why?
THE BIBLE. I WOULD LOVE THE PERSON WHO WROTE IT TO COME FORWARD AND EXPLAIN IT TO ME.

If someone wrote a book about your life, what would the title be?
ANATOMY OF A NOBODY (It”s actually being written.)

Best Seller by Timothy B. Sagges

Thirty-five year old fiction writer, Richard Rossi would do just about anything to get his manuscript published. However, months of rejection and unanswered prayers have strained his capacity to hope. Alone in New York City, he teeters on the brink of alcoholism, as his hope erodes into desperation.
His prayers are finally answered when a simple misdirected piece of mail spawns a chance encounter with an extraordinary man, Seth Volos, Publisher. And while their unholy alliance thrusts Richard to the top of every Best Seller list in America, the horrifying outcome for the book’s legions of fans is anything but a happy ending.
