Hello, my lovelies! I’m soooooo excited to welcome this week’s guest. I’ve been following Golden Czermak on Instagram for quite some time. If you’re not familiar with his work as a photographer, I highly recommend you check it out. Golden is not only a phenomenal photographer who works with some of the most iconic models in the business, including my friends Stuart Reardon and Franggy Yanez, he is also one hell of an author.
I finally met Golden in person last month at RT Booklovers Convention in Atlanta, and asked him if he’d drop by with his new release The Steam Tycoon. Before we get to the book, let’s get to know Golden!
How long have you been writing?
I’ve been writing off and on since I was 15; I have a long outline for a sci-fi story I think I will try to tackle next year. Recently I plucked up enough courage to work on a WIP for publication, which became the first Journeyman book – Homeward Bound – released in June 2016.
Oh, cool! How many hours do you spending writing each day?
On writing days, anywhere between 4 and 8 hours.
Between writing, modeling, and your photography, you’re crazy busy. What do you do in your downtime?
What is downtime? LOL.
I like to spend my downtime watching movies or playing video games – the ones with engaging stories or open world exploration.
Nice. In the movie about your life, what’s the title and who would play you?
The Guy Who Never Sleeps, starring Chris Pratt. Oh wait, that might be a daydream.
Hee! I could totally see that, though. What type of music do you listen to?
All genres, depending on the mood.
And what types of books are on your bookshelf at home?
Science fiction and fantasy, along with the many books I’ve had the privilege of working on over the years.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would that be?
Oh gosh that’s a toughie. I like living near the beach but not actually on it.
Not a fan of the sand? Ehehe. Okay, finish this sentence: I’m addicted to…
Ha! Aren’t we all? What can readers expect from you next?
I am planning to finish the short story “SWOLE” series in the coming months, along with a fantasy book “The Secret Life of Cooper Bennett”, which has more of a shifter vibe.
Awesome! I’m looking forward to reading all of the things, lol.
Jesse Winthrope is a self-made millionaire who has quickly risen from his own humble beginnings. Rocketed high into the upper echelons after the invention of his high efficiency Winthrope Steam Engine, Jesse is poised to take on the Western Frontier, starting in the city of Diablo.
Jenny Boone is from a hard-working farming family, living off the land far from the city and its technological marvels. However, circumstances beyond Jenny’s control force her into the clutches of a highly judgmental population.
Going to work in one of Winthrope’s factories, the two find each other and along with it a love that crosses both finances and prejudices.
Can their feelings for each other survive, or will society get the best of them, dousing the fire in their hearts?
About Golden Czermak…
In the beginning, Golden worked the standard corporate rat race, completed college for a Chemical Engineering Degree, and began a small photography company on the side.
Since then, and the growth of the FuriousFotog brand, Golden became an internationally published modeling/fitness photographer and eventually began working as a book cover model.
Having been in the industry for at least four years, he has interfaced and networked with countless authors and other clients. As part of his work as a photographer, he worked with them to create book cover images – now numbering well over 500 at the beginning of 2017.
Learning the ins and out of the book world, along with being an avid reader and storyteller himself, Golden finally decided to write and publish his first book, Homeward Bound, in 2016. This paranormal adventure romance will span a total of six books and new ideas for other stories are in the works as well.
Coming Soon from Xio…
