Author @JustinBog interviews Eden Baylee for THE BOG ZONE

Friend and author, Justin Bog interviewed me on his new segment—The BOG ZONE.

It was both fun and thought provoking to answer his questions. I even had to write a short piece of fiction. The PRESSURE! I think you’ll like “Kitchen Goddess,” but you may never want me to bake you a pie!

I enjoyed writing it and think you will love Justin’s easy interview style, so hop over and give it a read, will ya?

Sandcastle and Other Stories by Justin Bog

I met Justin a few months ago and did a guest blog for him about my top ten albums that help me create. We both have a passion for music, so it was the perfect fit. Later, I discovered what a terrific writer Justin is by subscribing to his creative writing blog.

Justin is one of the most genuinely supportive people I know, so I’m thrilled to showcase his debut novel, Sandcastle and Other Stories, and you know I LOVE the genre of short stories. I’m savoring each one as I read Justin’s book now. You will too!

Watch the excellent trailer and pick up a copy of Sandcastle and Other Stories. Find out find why it cracked the “TOP 100 Short Stories Paid List on Amazon“!

Ten literary, psychological, and suspense tales collected in Sandcastle and Other Stories are nothing short of an adventure through a roiling sea of emotion. An old man twisted by fate and a lost love . . . a young girl playing on the ocean shore becomes entangled in nets of a mercurial god . . . a divorced man mired in troubles, coerced into taking a singles’ cruise . . . a Hollywood actor in a television drama, always typecast as the bad boy . . . a child kept awake by night terrors, and a woman who hides her secretive personality from everyone on the beach one sunny day. Genuine voices of the characters, mixed with a clear-eyed tonal directness, make this a series with mesmerizing psychological interaction. Stories span a broad depth of human understanding and build a bridge between deepest chasms of pain and high portals of joy.

Read Sandcastles and Other Stories and stand witness to unspeakable hate sitting with cozy wile, right beside unconditional love — a provocative and compelling mirror on the human condition.

Justin Bog, first and foremost, grew up a voracious reader, movie fanatic, and music audiophile. Justin always carried a stack of library books and collected way too many comic books from his local Ohio small-town drugstore. More than one teacher scolded Justin to put his suspect reading materials away and join the class. Justin began to make up stories of his own, using an old typewriter he found in the attic.

So it comes as no surprise that Justin pursued an English Degree at the University of Michigan, followed by Film and Music Appreciation classes — finally graduating from Bowling Green State University with an MFA in Fiction Writing. After teaching creative writing, Justin began apprenticing in a number of bookstores and editing fiction for a midwestern journal. Justin ended up on the management team at Chapter One Bookstore in the Sun Valley resort area for a decade, offering book recommendations to its local celebrities, skiing fanatics, and tourists. Currently residing in the San Juan Islands just north of Seattle, Justin has the opportunity to focus on his own novels and short stories, while contributing commentary and reviews of Pop Culture. Justin continues to engage his lifelong passion for writing in combination with his curious mindset as the Senior Contributor and Editor at In Classic Style.

Sandcastle and Other Stories is his first book.
