An Interview and a GIVEAWAY with Park Cooper

I'd like to welcome Park Cooper to Labelle Books today. Park is on the hot seat with an interview, gives us a glimpse of his comedic fantasy Picaresque, and was nice enough to offer a giveaway of his book to one lucky commenter.

For a chance to win it, please leave your email address with your comments.

Welcome Park, how long have you been an author?

Park: I guess I’ll count since our creator-owned graphic novel Half Dead came out; that was April 2007.

What is your favourite genre?

Park: Hmm, interesting question. I guess I’ll say urban fantasy.

What is the biggest surprise you’ve discovered about the writing process?

Park: How it’s even more fun than I thought it would be.

I agree, can you tell us about one of your current works in progress?

Park: Hmm. Currently we’re working on a young adult urban fantasy, as a matter of fact—the heroine’s in the 8th grade.

Interesting, if you had the chance to meet one of your characters privately, who would it be and what would you do?

Park: I’m going to go with Reginald, the narrator of Picaresque, just because for most of his life he was supposed to be training to be an entertainer, so such a meeting could be very entertaining. Of course, he didn’t really train in the way he was supposed to do, but he’s a pretty charming guy anyway when he feels like it.

If you could choose to time travel, would you go backward or forward, and why?

Park: Backward, because I’d know what to expect.

I'd like to thank Park for joining us today. For those of you who would like to learn more about Park and his work he can be reached through his website:

"Picaresque will charm you with its swift pace and levity, its sense of adventure, and especially the colorful band of misfits who inhabit its pages. It put a smile on my face right away and kept it there all the way to the end." --John Rozum, author of DC Comics' MIDNIGHT, MASS and XOMBI
