I Belong

Look Who’s Going to RT: F. Paul Wilson

Can you introduce yourself to my readers?

I’m a congenital skeptic who’s been writing since the late Cretaceous Period.  I’ve somewhere north of forty novels to my credit, some of them NY Times bestsellers, most not. I live at the REAL Jersey Shore on an elevated tract of land I believe will gain an ocean view after the great tsunami. My website, is centered about my recurring character, urban mercenary Repairman Jack, and logs about 3 million hits per month.

Can you introduce us to the world that you have created?

Repairman Jack is an urban mercenary who lives under the radar with no SSN and has never filed a 1040.  He hires out (for cash) to fix problems/situations the system can’t deal with, or when the system itself is part of the problem.  He was introduced in my 1984 novel, THE TOMB, which a number of people claim is the first Urban Fantasy.  I knew right away I had a series character, but I didn’t want to start a series, so I left him dying at the end. But THE TOMB never went out of print, and his clamoring fans grew louder and louder.  So I brought him back in 1998 and he proceeded to hijack my writing career.  The 15th novel, THE DARK AT THE END, comes out this fall.

Will this be your first RT or are you a veteran?  Any advice for those who are going for the first time?

This will be my fourth RT in a row. I’d always figured Jack would have a male audience, but I noticed at least half the people who showed up at my events on tour were women. So I decided to see if I could increase my female audience.  I was getting around 1.8 million hits per month on back then.  A month after my first RT we hit 2.8 million.

The secret?  Relax, be yourself, and bring lots of books to give away.  RT attendees are the friendliest people on earth and voracious readers. If they try your writing and like it, they’ll scoop up everything you’ve ever written.

Are you speaking on any panels during RT?  Are there any you are looking forward to?  What panels are you planning on attending?

I don’t have any panel assignments yet, but a series of graphic novels I’m doing with David Dabel will be introduced at the conference.  I’m looking forward to panels on YA fiction and ebooks.

If someone were wanting to meet up with you at RT, who should they look for?

First, check the bar. If you see a strikingly handsome wide-shouldered guy surrounded by adoring women, keep going. (Probably a male model.)  Farther along you’ll find a medium-build guy with graying hair and “F. Paul Wilson” on his badge. Bingo.

    His book, Reborn, had the most nightmarish scene I’ve ever read – describing the impaling by Vlad Tepes as if the reader was doing it. shudder!

    Okay, because of his wit and self deprecating humor, I must now go out and buy all of his books.
