Virtual Book Tour Exit Strategy by L. F. Falconer

As an author in this economy, you have to come up with creative ways to market a self-published book. While book tours are a great way to connect with your readers, they aren’t the most affordable method of promotion. However, technology has made it possible for an alternative.

Take note from self-publishing Outskirts Press author, L. F. Falconer, who is taking his latest book, Exit Strategy, on tour – a virtual book tour, that is. He will be featured on several blogs over the weeks and months ahead so keep your eyes peeled to learn more about him and his book.


Luckily for us, J.C. was kind enough to answer a few questions as the tour was getting started so that we can give you a sneak peek into the mind of the creator of Exit Strategy.

Exit Strategy book cover

OP: Tell us a little bit about Exit Strategy. What is it about?

LFF: Exit Strategy is the story of Jonas, a man suffering from multiple personality disorder, who chooses to run from the law when accused of a murder he believes he didn’t commit, a journey that takes him from Massachusetts to Newfoundland, to Greenland, and finally to the Shetland Islands.   Under the torments of Gabe and Izzy, two young passengers he took on board his boat, Jonas begins to unravel and discovers some unsettling, buried truths about himself and his past.  And he just wants out.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

LFF: I was looking for a diversion from the medieval fantasy realm I’d been involved with for so many years.  Exit Strategy started out as a far different story when I first conceived the idea, but once the characters of Gabe and Izzy came to life, the story took a turn to the left and blossomed.

OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?

LFF: This is definitely an adult novel, and will probably appeal to most anyone who enjoys digging into the shadier side of human nature.  And while it can get pretty dark in some spots, there are enough moments of light humor to keep it from being too heavy.

OP: What is special about your book?  What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

LFF: This book is told entirely from the perspective of a very disturbed man and contains much that might cause the reader to question the reality of certain characters and situations.  It also incorporates some dark fantasy, yet all is subjective as to what might be true and what might simply be the invention of Jonas Dumar’s fractured mind.

OP: Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more?

LFF: In 2012, I published my first novel, Hope Flies on Broken Wings, a tragic love story set on the edge of medieval fantasy.  I am currently working on its much-requested sequel.  I am also writing a collection of macabre short stories.  I tend not to be a slave to genre.  I write what inspires me.

OP: Thanks for your time, J.C.! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!
