An Interview with Roystonn Pruitt

I decided to consult the Internet for common author interview questions, then interviewed myself!

- Why did you write your book?

I wrote it because I had a story to share with the world. Writing is my forte, so it seemed like a natural path to follow.


- What inspired you?

A large part of my inspiration came from science fiction works such as Star Wars (movies and books), as well as animation. The largest, however, was from my time as a sci-fi roleplayer on the Internet. Without that experience, Riesel would not be as it is today.


- How did you settle on this story? […]

Quizzes with Wolves

I told my book characters about another questionnaire. I failed to tell them it was a dating quiz. Oops.

1) What do you do for work? - 

Runge: Retrieval specialist and wetwork. I like saying that because it sounds fancy.

Ramy: He means bounty hunter and assassin. Same for me, minus the last part.

Runge: You do assassinations, too.

Ramy: I...don't like to advertise it. It's not fun for me...unlike how it is for you.

Runge: As I said in the last quiz, life is a video game, and I'm aiming for the high score.

Ramy: Lifetime incarceration in a hypermax facility, I see.

Runge: Yeah, probably one of the ones on a planet that's orbiting way too close to its star.

Ramy: Only the best for you, of course.


2) Where are you from? - 

Runge: Do we really need to get into biology?

Ramy: Hoooo, clever. Everyone is laughing. Ha. Ha. Ha. Runge meant to say Ahjri, a planet. Same for me, although my surrogate homeworld is Audonika.


3) What is the one thing about yourself that you would like me to know? - 

Runge: I do magic tricks from time to time. I can transform someone's brain into paint with a simple twitch of my finger! […]

The Great Questioning

Another deviantArt questionnaire featuring my book's two bounty hunter "protagonists", Runge Margavo and Ramy Dusotes!


Runge: All day, every day.

Ramy: Not on this planet. Next.



Runge: A long time ago.

Ramy: May 7.



Runge: If it's female, mildly intelligent, and not fat, I'm all over it.

Ramy: As I said in Question A.



Questionnaerial Assault

This is a questionnaire thing I did on deviantArt. Fun!

Totally had to do this for the characters of my book, Riesel Tales: Two Hunters. Behold: everyone's favorite loopy bounty hunter duo Runge and Ramy answer a questionnaire.

1. What is your name?

Runge: Runge Margavo. Are we done yet?

Ramy: Ramy Dusotes. Please pardon my partner's insanity.


2. Do you know why you were named that?

Runge: Because my dad was drunk and my mom went with it. Or something. Best guess.

Ramy: My parents never really told me. They never told me a lot of things, actually.


 3. Are you single or taken?

Runge: Never single, never taken. Wink wink.

Ramy: Single, and it'll remain that way until I get off this nasty ball of towers and settle on a more civilized world.


4. Have any abilities or powers?

Runge: I can down a bunch of ale and still pop somebody from the distance with a sniper rifle. I'm sturdy like that. […]

The Insanity Cupboard

Behold: the Insanity Cupboard! This is where I'll be putting flash fiction (short-short stories) which may or may not be canon, and these stories may or may not have anything to do with the RTTH continuity. It's like a bag of candy that also contains cheese balls, croutons, rice, and overcooked French fries. Who knows what you might find! It's all for fun and promotional deliciousnessitude. Accessible via the About menu. Pop on over and partake in the amusement.
