An Entirely Different Person

David Gittlin Author Interview

Promise of the Visitor follows a writer that finds out the alien he was waiting for has led a hostile race right to Earth and must now stop them and save the planet. What was the inspiration for the setup of your story?

At the end of the second book in the series “Cataclysm—End of Worlds” the three central characters are discussing the arrival of an alien from the planet Aneleya. Arcon, an artificial intelligence, also from the planet Aneleya on the other side of the Milky Way, successfully recruits the two human characters to participate in a mission to introduce the alien to the world. The alien is a female scientist. She has promised to bring gifts to the human race and promote world peace with a unique approach. This idea plus a cliffhanger ending in book two formed the nucleus for the launch of book three, “Promise of the Visitor.”

When I started writing, I didn’t have any idea how the story would unfold. I simply wrote down a rough outline for each chapter and fired away. In a way, I feel like the story wrote itself, and I had fun writing it.

Which character in the novel do you feel you relate to more and why?

That’s an easy one. I identified with Jacob Casell, the narrator of the story. He spins the tale from a first-person perspective, and in the present tense. Jacob and I share some things in common, but he’s an entirely different person than I am. I enjoyed living the story through him, and that enjoyment seems to have rubbed off on my readers.

What was your favorite scene in this story?

Honestly, I don’t have a favorite scene. I think the scene where Silenna, the Aneleyan scientist, walks into the kitchen and confronts two FBI agents wearing an outrageous outfit because she is almost seven feet tall and difficult to dress. This scene was one of the most fun scenes I wrote in the book.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

I’ve almost completed the first draft of my next book titled “Time Terminus”. It’s about a lawyer who owns a law firm in South Florida, his girlfriend, a serial killer, and time travel. It’s a Science Fiction/Mastery, like the last four books I’ve written, only completely different from anything I’ve written before.

The police have arrived to investigate a strange report. What happens next?

An unconscious body lies on the kitchen floor. Two Daytona Police deputies are ringing the bell on the front door of the beach house mystery writer Jacob Cassel rents. It’s going to be an interesting morning for Jacob, his super-smart girlfriend, Amy, and Arcon, an AI from the other side of the Milky Way. If they can survive the morning without being thrown in jail, they are expecting a visitor from the planet Aneleya to arrive later in the evening bearing a cornucopia of gifts for the human race. Instead of gifts, the visitor arrives with dire news about a doomsday device threatening the destruction of planet Earth and the entire solar system.

Welcome aboard for this suspenseful interstellar adventure of The Silver Sphere Series.

The three volumes in the Silver Sphere Series can be read independently and in any order.
