Giveaway and Author Interview: The Chair

Welcome to Writing for Christ Jim Rubart, it is great to have you here! 

Very fun to be with you again, Casey. 

Do you have an interesting fact about yourself the average reader probably doesn’t know? 

I've done voice over work for radio commercials along with character voices. My first job out of college was on-air at a radio station. Then I sold radio time, then started my own ad agency in '94. Occasionally I would get behind the mic or the camera for radio and TV spots.

Do you have a favorite genre to read/write?

I love to read speculative fiction and within that genre my favorite is time travel. With regard to writing (I know this will be a shock) my favorite to write is stories with a supernatural or speculative element set within an ordinary, contemporary world.

Do you have a nugget of writing advice that has completely changed how you view writing?

The books shouldn't point to me as the author. They should point to Jesus and making Him more famous and taking people deeper into Him, because He is where all true life flows from.



What do you enjoy most about being a published author?

When readers e-mail me and say my stories have changed their lives it blows my mind. So cool! That's the biggest thrill, because that's my desire—that when people finish one of my books they will be more free than when they started.

  16. I've read James' previous books, "Rooms" and "Book of Days." His books stretch me to think a bit differently than usual, in a good way. I would enjoy winning and reading "The Chair."
    Thanks for the opportunity.
