Vincent Lowry


1) What is your author name and in what state do you live (or country if not in the US)?Cole Bruce. Tennessee.
2) What is the title of your newest book and what is the genre? Well, I have tons of books out already. So, if this for the book to show up, it’s ‘Ruler and the Gods and the Athanatos Stone‘; oldest book out of them.
3) What is the book about? Jesse Talley is chosen to go into the Greek World to face against Hades. On his adventure, he meets Athena and Ares; he’ll also meet Gods and Goddesses, fight Greek Mythology Monsters and see creatures. But, what makes this book series unique is my very own Fantasy characters, creatures and worlds.
4) Where did you come up with the idea? Back in 2009, I had a notebook plan called ‘Ruler’s Ring’, but in 9th Grade at my High School, my English Teacher showed us ‘The Odysee’ and that’s when ‘Ruler’s Ring’ turned into ‘Ruler of the Gods’. The ring turned into the Magical Timeline Transporter and the magical world combined into Greek Mythology. In 2012, ‘Ruler of the Gods’ changed to ‘Ruler and the Gods’.
5) How long did it take you to write it? 9 years on Notebook and a few attempts on computer, but on Oct.2017, I finished it.
6) Did you learn anything from the project? It really helped me love History, create more stories, come up with more imagination.
7) Do you have an author website and/or blog? How about a book video? ‘Ruler’s Greek World Crossovers and Others’ Facebook Page shows it all! Books, Links, Videos, etc
8) Do you have any success tips to pass on to fellow authors? How about any great editors/cover artists? Right now, I’m still trying to get my work out. I’m the Editor and Book Cover artist (in a way. I went on, but zoomed it in to make it something else)
9) What genres do you like to read? Are you open to reading new authors and reviewing their work? I love mostly Fantasy, Adventure and Sci-fi, but also Classic Literature, Mystery, Thriller, Comedy, etc. I do like to see new Arthors and connect with them.
10) What is your favorite book of all time and why? Even though, I’m a Potterhead (Harry Potter Lover), my favorite book is ‘Of Mice and Men’
11) Fun Question: Do you have any pets? If so, what kind? 3 Cats, 2 Dogs, 2 Guini Pigs and a Hampster (My sisters)
12) Fun Question 2: Do you own an electronic reading device? If so, what kind and how do you like it? Amazon Kindle and only care about the music. I don’t care about Ebooks and Digital Books. Only way I would use them as a sample of my books.
