3Q’s – Paul Tremblay starts a new club!

3Q2

Man oh man! I am excited for today’s 3Q’s guest.

As some of you may know, I have a favorite author. I love this author’s work and collect all of his work and love posting about his work. Well, today’s author just happens to be THAT author for my book pal, George! Every time I see George posting about his love of today’s guests work, I smile and am so very happy, knowing exactly how it feels like. The one difference – George (at the time of writing this) has actually met his favorite author in person A NUMBER OF TIMES. Son of a bitch.

Without further wait – please welcome Mr. Paul Tremblay!

Paul, welcome and thanks for doing this!

Steve: What does your writing time look like? Do you try to write at the same time each day? Do you have a word count you attempt to hit?

Paul: During the school year I typically write at night, but try to take advantages of free periods if and when I have them. Weekends and days off I prefer to write in the morning. When I’m going good, I aim for 500 words, give or take 100.

Steve: You win the lottery and the only condition is that you need to fund another author’s book to be made into a movie. What book would you choose to be filmed?

Paul: I’d like John Langan’s The Fisherman to be a limited series. It’s too big to be a single film, which means we need more money, enough to keep the producers at bay and enough for all the cocaine that John would require once he goes Hollywood. Seriously though, I’d love to see that book with its tonal shifts and story within a story leading to the leviathan/Moby Dick ending. It’s such a great story.

Steve: Tell me about your newest release (novel/story/poem/novella) and why someone should read it!

Paul: The Pallbearers Club is presented as the found memoir of a Gen Xer who calls himself Art Barbara. The book starts with Art in high school, he’s a loner with no friends but he decides to start a Pallbearers Club: volunteer at a funeral home to serve elderly and homeless that don’t have any living relatives. No classmates stick with the club but a strange older woman, a punk fan he names Mercy, joins. She may or may not be a supernatural figure from New England folklore. Oh, she found the memoir and makes comments at the end of chapters and in the margins. Come for the supernatural ambiguity, stay for the monstrous verbing and adverbing of nouns like Hellrasiered.

Steve: Bonus Question! If you could be an extra on any TV show, which one would it have been and why?

Paul: X-Files. I just loved the show. I could be a creepy tall skinny person hanging out in the shadows randomly. When spotted, I’d bend and stretchy my bendy stretchy fingers in Hellraisered ways.
