AISFP 161 – Peter Orullian

This episode is brought to you by the new space opera MAJESTY’S OFFSPRING, by AJ Vega, and by WOLF DAWN, a science fiction novel by Susan Cartwright reminiscent of ENDER’S GAME and DUNE.

For decades, Majesty, the first sentient artificial intelligence, and humanity lived together in harmony with mankind reaping the benefits of a world free of disease, famine, and even aging. But when Majesty decided she wanted to “birth” her own A.I. offspring, a joint interplanetary military effort fought and finally defeated her, eradicating all existing artificial intelligence … or so they thought.

Ashton Chayton was born with a powerful gift, a unique inhuman ability. Orphaned, raised by the Red Wolves of Opan, captured and enslaved – he is now free and on the run. Unfortunately everybody wants Ashton. Admiral Jones will torture him to get the secret of his power. Lady Lindha feels he is “The One” as named in Temple prophecy. The influential Lord Andros just wants him dead.  Ashton only wants two things: revenge, and the Lady Lindha. If you had unique powers, wouldn’t you use them to get what you want?

  1. A gardener? What’s that, someone who deals with a lot of weed?

  2. Great episode. Peter is a great interviewer/interviewee, and seems like a really down to earth guy. I’ve watched almost all of his interviews on YouTube. I’m hoping they do audio versions of his series someday… no way I’m reading a book that big! I thought fantasy was trending in shorter stories these days?

  3. Wonderful!

  4. Thanks for the interview guys. What an inspirational story, Peter. So, waking up at 3:30 means you average how much sleep? I wake up at 4:30, but still need 8 hours to stay motivated past lunch. I can’t imagine consistently lacking sleep and having a 500k word story to wrap my brain around. That’s incredible.

    This interview also made me wonder if I don’t spend too much time reading online (blogs and sports). I’m starting to quantify the time I will spend reading the local sports articles as time away from other tasks, but cutting out reading blogs too? I guess it just makes you realize how many things you could cut out of your day in order to fit writing in. Notice he didn’t say anything about Fringe or Game of Thrones (the show). Wait, what am I doing here? Gotta go, thanks again!

  5. Jordan: I actually have it on my to-do list to ask my editor if they play audio versions. I’m hoping they do.

    Tim: Average sleep? Hard to say. Probably about 4-5 hours. I’m in the process of writing a blog post about my crazy hours–calling it: The Grind! And like I say, I’m still reading, just mostly novels from writers I dig. And yes, of course, I’m watching a few of the better programs, e.g. GoT!

  6. Ah, but if you read King’s book, he says we writes a rough short first draft.That’s just a big fat outline.
