Lincoln Child??s new release: The Forgotten Room

Talking about Lincoln Child is nothing new at this point. His reputation precedes him, thanks to the numerous successful works he has written over many years. But while it???s true the author is now widely read, he hasn???t remained static. Rather, he has retained the ability to surprise readers each day with a surprising new facet of his work, whether it be his intense plots, well-crafted characters, solid narrative arcs or electrifying endings. Below I would like to share with you a brief review of his book The Forgotten Room, which featured for a long time on the New York Times bestseller list.

A good book to read: The Forgotten Room

In this book Professor Jeremy Logan, the story???s protagonist, must confront a disconcerting case that might well be his last. As Lincoln Child???s faithful readers already know, the professor has previously appeared in other books in the series.

Logan specializes in analyzing and resolving possibly supernatural mysteries; this time he will find himself immersed in what appears to be a suicide by a prestigious doctor. The first enigma he encounters is the strange behavior reported by the doctor before his death; he is said to have suddenly begun to act in an aggressive way, very different from the attitude which earned him the affection and respect of colleagues.

During the course of his investigation, Logan also discovers a hidden room. The mystery that awaits him there will be much greater than the one he initially faced, rejecting any simple solution and dragging him irremediably down a path that admits no return.

Author Interview: Karri Thompson

TBM: How do you imagine the ideal reader of your book?

KT: My ideal reader is someone who loves unique stories with a lot of twist and turns and romance.

TBM: How was the writer inside of you born?

KT: I???ve always had a passion for writing. I wrote my first short story when I was in third grade. I don???t remember what it was called, but it was about a lady bug that slept in a hammock made from a leaf. I even drew pictures to go with it. At SDSU, I took a class called ???The Writing of Fiction.??? I wrote a 25-page short story, and my professor actually called me at home on a Saturday to tell me he just read it and was blown away by it. I couldn???t believe it. Geez, I don???t remember what that story was called either, but his call inspired me to keep writing.

TBM: What genres do you work with and why are you attracted to these forms of writing?

KT: I primarily write young adult sci-fi. I???m a sci-fi freak who grew up watching Star Trek reruns and then The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager. I???ve always been fascinated with the unknown and the possible technology of the future. I would love to be a Starfleet officer. I also love Star Wars and Sherlock???Sherlock has nothing to do with Sci-Fi, but I???m obsessed with the show, so I had to mention it. Lol.

TBM: As a reader, what elements of a story do you love, or do you hate?

KT: I don???t like stories that are too predictable. That???s why MIRROR X is full of all kinds of surprises. I love stories with a strong main character who is a bit flawed but extremely likeable. The male lead also needs to be handsome (someone who can make a girl???s stomach do flips) and maybe even be a bit na??ve.

TBM: What inspired you to write MIRROR X and what do you hope your readers will take away from this book?

KT: Without giving away some of the major twists, I can say that I???ve always been intrigued with the idea of bringing back someone who died ??? not in the form of a Zombie (though I???m a huge fan of The Walking Dead) but as a new person with a new soul ??? if that makes any sense. There is one person in particular who I wish I had met, but he died before I was even born. If you want to know who this individual is, you???ll have to read MIRROR X J This person just might make an appearance.

TBM: How long did it take you to write this book and what did you do the day that you finished it?

KT: The initial first draft only took me about three months to write, but of course, it was really rough. It took another two to three weeks to self-edit. Then I switched manuscripts with my critique partner, so we could give each other feedback. It took another two to three weeks to go through my partner???s comments and make adjustments. Then it was finally ready to send to my agent, so she could give it a look before querying publishers. To celebrate the fact that it was agent-ready, I went out to dinner with my husband. It is such a great feeling to have a book polished and ready up to that point. But it didn???t end there. After it sold to Entangled Teen, there was a year???s worth of edits before the galley was ready. It really is a long process. I go through this with every book I write. It is a lot of work and takes a lot of patience, but it is so worth it to me.

TBM: What would you like to say to your readers?

KT: I would like to thank all of my readers for reading MIRROR X. Book two is on my editor???s desk. I can???t wait for all of you to read it! I am so anxious to begin writing the last book in the trilogy. My goal is to write books with powerful themes and plot twists. If you are a member of my street team, you will get a first look at book two. Yay!

TBM: How much research went into this book?

KT: A lot of research went into MIRROR X in terms of cryogenics and something else I don???t want to say because it will give it away. Let???s just say that I learned a lot about DNA in the process J I didn???t want any plot holes in the book, so I made sure that all of the medical information was correct. I even discovered a theory called ???ancestral memory.??? This concept comes out in book two.

TBM: Lastly, a direct message to the readers, about why they should read MIRROR X.

KT: MIRROR X is definitely a new twist on a dystopian future. If you are looking for a compelling and sometimes shocking read, this book is definitely for you.

Thanks Karri for this amazing interview!
