The Interview



Q: Welcome to The Writer's Life, Lindon. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how long you’ve been writing?

A: I was born in Portland Jamaica West Indies, and in 1992 I migrated to Canada. At present, I reside in Toronto with my beautiful wife Lorna and our adorable children. I enjoy being in the company of positive people and I am always looking for ways to assist others who are less fortunate.



Q: Can you please tell us about your book and why you wrote it?

A: the wounds have healed...the scars are bleeding! takes us back in time to the history of the Slave Trade in America and the West Indies, and then brings us back to the present, focusing our attention on the aftermath and the impact of slavery within our communities and around the world. A great deal of attention is focused on us coming together as a people to overcome the cycle of violence rather than tearing each other apart. I wrote this book because I have the confidence knowing that our lives can be better if we all work together to make that positive change. Our forefathers have paved the way and have left us with examples for us to follow and principles to live by. They did it, and so can we.


Q: What were some of the biggest challenges you faced writing it?

A: Fortunately, I was not faced with any major challenges when writing this book, but there were a few set backs due to errors in the production stage. Things got back on track and I am very pleased with the finished work.


Q: Do you have a press kit and what do you include in it? Does this press kit appear online and, if so, can you provide a link to where we can see it?


A: No. I do not have a press kit at this time, but I have been working with my publicist from CHRY 105.5 FM, to put a kit together. I will be more than happy to provide you with information when the project is compete.



Q: Have you either spoken to groups of people about your book or appeared on radio or TV? What are your upcoming plans for doing so?

A: Yes, I have spoken to a group of teachers and their students during the production stages of the book. The Principal at the school my kids attend invited me to come and speak with the grade eight students. The students and the teachers in attendance participated and they were very pleased with the presentation. I also did three radio interviews with CHRY 105.5 and received positive feedbacks.



Q: Do you have an agent and, if so, would you mind sharing who he/is is? If not, have you ever had an agent or do you even feel it’s necessary to have one?

A: No, I do not have an agent and have never had one. At this time I do not believe it is necessary to have one. I am trying to learn about the publishing industry and if an agent is required I will certainly do my research and call on one.


Q: Did you, your agent or publisher prepare a media blitz before the book came out and would you like to tell us about it?

A: No, we did not prepare a media blitz.


Q: Do you plan subsequent books?

A: Yes, I do plan subsequent books. I am in the final stages of writing my second book, titled; what’s in your barn?



Q: Thank you for your interview, LINDON. Would you like to tell my readers where they can find you on the web and how everyone can buy your book?
