INTERVIEW WITH GUEST AUTHOR- MARIE HARBON





About the Author:- 

I’m a UK based author who writes mainly in the science fiction, fantasy, and paranormal genres, although I may break that rule from time to time. Apart from writing, my greatest passions also include fabric and stitching; I create bags, corsets and clothing in the vintage, retro and alternative style.


Q and A

James: When did you begin to write?

I was always known for writing stories when I was at school. The teachers would read them out to the class and at age 12, I expanded an English class assignment to a novella about my class being stranded on a desert island after the cruise ship sank. It was rather Lost-esque, with giant rabbits and aliens, but the class mostly enjoyed all the interactions between the characters, as they were the stars!

Since then, I’ve written a few more novel length books, but I wanted my stories to have maturity so I waited until I was much older before I put one out. I think it’s best to write with the wisdom of experience, of relationships and of people. It creates stronger characters and enriched interactions between them. So in conclusion, I think writing has always been in my blood.

James : What make you to think of publishing a book to share with others and at the same time encourage others to share their faiths? So far what is your worst criticism/attacks, and how you overcome it?

It’s something I always intended to do, especially as I’m happy creating my own little worlds in my head. Usually, criticism tends to come from readers who venture out of their genre, or who don’t understand the book is part of a series and no plot threads are going to be resolved in the first book. If it isn’t constructive criticism, I tend to ignore it.

James: How you come up with title of your books?

I usually look for a powerful word, or something enigmatic like ‘Seven Point Eight’. My preference is for words and titles that aren’t used much, therefore they stand out.

James: Can you enlighten us a little more about your books?

It amalgamates all the things that interest me and that I’ve read about, including psychic powers, time travel, past lives, folklore, aliens, ancient wisdom and technology, quantum physics, mysticism, conspiracy, and the universe. I wanted to create a highly ambitious series that encompasses life, the universe and everything, in an epic story revolving around five principal characters.

The concept revolves around visiting other worlds via the power of the mind, so you don’t need your physical body. Through consciousness alone, it’s possible to explore not only the universe, but your own spiritual heritage. The series involves a group of extraordinary people, and their quest for the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.


James: Is there anything else you would like your readers to pay special attention in regards to your book, which you have not mentioned above?

The Seven Point Eight Chronicles
‘The Truth Will Set You Free’

Written in the style of a TV series, Seven Point Eight draws together quantum physics, psychic powers, alternate dimensions, time travel, past lives, ancient wisdom, and conspiracy in a soap opera for the soul.

It’s the ideal read for lovers of sci-fi, contemporary fantasy, the paranormal, metaphysics, ‘Lost’, ‘Fringe’, ‘Touch’, and Dan Brown books.

Seven Point Eight: The Second Chronicle
‘What Goes Around, Comes Around’

In the second instalment of the five part Seven Point Eight series, the legacy of the OOBE project weighs heavily on the conscience of Dr. Paul Eldridge. Tahra Mamoun needs to muster all her courage and venture back into the alternate dimensions of reality. Through a series of challenging, surreal and frightening experiences, she comes to comprehend the destructive power she can yield and must face her own demons in the process.

Paul continues his quest to understand the ancient knowledge of the cosmos, while dark forces seek to hijack his research to further a secret agenda. With their lives in jeopardy, Paul and Tahra confront their enemies against an international backdrop featuring the pyramids of Giza and the peaks of Switzerland.

Meanwhile, Sam and Ava endeavour to uncover their past, even though it may irrevocably change their lives.

In a tale of courage and tragedy, love and betrayal, their lives are interwoven around the demons of one man, Max Richardson, who'll stop at nothing to achieve his objectives.

James: When do you plan to publish your book 2, if applicable? 

This is book 2 that I’m promoting.

James : How many volume of books for the above series? 

There are five in all. The First Chronicle came out about eighteen months ago, The Second Chronicle has just been released, and The Third Chronicle is scheduled for next year, no specific release day yet.

Each book will feature a main character on the cover, with the story involving them in a significant way. The first book depicted Tahra, as she is the key to beginning this whole journey in many ways, while the second one depicts Max, because I think his story arc is central to the action in the story, and links the character in a very dark and sinister way.

The Third Chronicle will feature Ava and in this book, her purpose and secrets will be revealed, as will her enemies and allies. I have something really wonderful planned for her, although it’ll change her life in ways she may regret. The Fourth Chronicle focuses on Paul to a large degree, because there’s a chunk of his life he hasn’t told us about, and it will be pretty explosive for the people concerned. Finally, The Fifth Chronicle concludes with the focus on Sam, his demons and dilemmas, plus, it wraps up all the story threads and mysteries running throughout the series.

I have some great story arcs lined up for all the characters, they’d better hold onto their hats!

James: Tell us your guided principle that governs your life? How you cultivate these values? 

My principles are ‘do what you believe to be right, regardless of what you are told’. Avoid hypocrisy, and extend empathy towards others. Experience life through creativity and love for humanity. Empower yourself within, not through outward displays of materialism. Seek the truth, regardless of what you are told. I try to communicate my principles through my writing.
James: Is there any other advice which you like to share with our readers? 

Don’t rush; craft your story with care, patience and above all, passion. Pass it to a variety of people to read in beta form, and ideally one or two people you don’t know very well, so you can get a more unbiased opinion. Take on feedback and appraise your work with honesty. Then after it’s published, be prepared to work extremely hard promoting it.  See it as a journey and enjoy the ride.
