~GIVEAWAY AND Q&A WITH C.S.R. CALLOWAY~ AUTHOR OF PECULIAR,INC.

WELCOME TO MBA&M,C.S.R.!!!

Fantasy Adventure / Religious Author…..

C.S.R. CALLOWAY……

PECULIAR, INC.

MBA&M: Please tell our readers a little about yourself?

Hi, howdy and yo! I’m C.S.R. Calloway, and I go by Chance (my first initial) and Scissor (which is apparently what my first three initials sound like sounded out). I travel a LOT, being raised on both coasts and traveling outside the U.S. to about fourteen other countries. I dance more than I travel, and I sing more than I dance. Knowing me is a taxing experience.



MBA&M: What was your inspiration for writing “Peculiar,INC”?

This started out as a sixth grade Language Arts project. My friends and I imagined what would happen if we teamed up with Greek gods and they gave us super powers. As time went on and friends moved and changed and I discovered my overused feeling of abandonment, I extended the story, changing characters and developing powers. Then one day, in college, I thought “What if it happened today? Instead of it beginning in the sixth grade, what if it started now?” And the creativity kicked into high gear.



MBA&M: Which was your favorite character to write about and why?

Kim, absolutely. She taught me so much about perception vs. reality. I went to high school with an army of Kims. I grew up with Kims. This book helped me understand them. Several years too late, I might add. Plus her humor is just odd.



MBA&M: How many book will be in
“The Charismatic Chronicles” series?

I’m leaning towards four right now. I have some short story ideas because any universe is potentially endless, but the actual Chronicles are sitting at four right now.


MBA&M: What three words would you use to describe this story?

“exploring” “relatable” “fun”


MBA&M: What scene stands out the most to you and why?

The first time Justus uses his powers in a fight was huge for me, but my absolute favorite scene is the awkward conversation between Kim and her mother Delia in the kitchen. The way Delia goes about having the college prep talk is so awkward and funny, I still laugh when I read it. It shows why Kim’s humor is so unique.


MBA&M: If you could have dinner with any character,real or fiction,who would it be and why?

Athos, the Musketeer. I’m always struck by his intensity, privacy and suppressed emotion. You can infer several of my personal problems with that response.

MBA&M: What do you hope your readers will take away from “Peculiar,INC”?

Golly. That it’s okay to be weird or strange or gifted and to have weird or strange or gifted friends, because everyone’s weird or strange or gifted to somebody else. What is most important is to have purpose.

 

MBA&M: Now, Chance, please tell our readers where to connect with you and where they may purchase “Peculiar,  INC”?

I’m available day in and day out at CSRCStorys.com, alongside many of the characters from The Charismatic Chronicles. Also tweet me @CSRCStorys and Facebook me at CSR Calloway. Currently you can purchase Peculiar, INC through Amazon and iTunes. Any updates will be posted on the site. Thanks so much for having me!
