RVN by Tim Gingras

Technology has made it easier than ever to reach wider audiences no matter where they are in the world. All it takes is a little thinking outside the box and you can market a self-published book in creative ways, affordably and impactfully. This is where book tours come in: Tours are a great way to connect with your readers, and technology has made them easier and more cost effective than ever!

Author Tim Gingras is taking his latest book RVN, on tour — a Virtual Book Tour with Outskirts Press. This will allow Tim to take his book around the world, all from the comfort of his own home! Keep an eye out for Tim’s book as he will be featured on several blogs over the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, Tim 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 RVN.

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

Tim: It’s about a good Chicago kid, who gets drafted shortly after graduating High School, and despite options to avoid the call to serve, serves the best he can. It’s a story of survival.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Tim: I had the concept of the story swimming around in my mind for over a decade, and since retiring, I challenged myself to write this story, using everything I have learned, researched, imagined, and lived.

OP: How did you get your book published?

Tim: I made my best decision contacting Outskirts Press. They guided me and inspired me.

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

Tim: Veterans. War story readers. Students wanting to learn more about the Vietnam experience. Romantics, and patriots.

OP: What is special about your book?

Tim: Time will tell. I think it’s a simple novel, yet I wanted to research as much of the tangible parts, such as the weather of the day, and what was going on in Charlie Kinane’s world. A great summer in Chicago, 1966, just before induction. I tried really hard to describe surroundings, and situations as realistically as possible. Every quarter, 15% of my Royalties from each book will go to hard working Veteran Organization.

OP: What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

Tim: I was a U.S. Navy Corpsman. My Navy C-School was Pharmacy at Portsmouth Naval Hospital. I tried to create a REAL character in Charlie Kinane, dealing with a very complicated, and dangerous experiences, in the best way possible. It’s a quick read too, not too long.

OP: Have you published any other books?

Tim: This is my first novel, though I have written performed material.

OP: Do you plan to publish more?

Tim: I hope so, but I’m going to see how this turns out. I have a couple more stories swimming around in the old grey matter still.

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