AwesomeGang.com Author Interview with Joey Pinkney

AwesomeGang: Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.

Joey Pinkney: So far, I have published four standalone short stories, one novelette and a short Twitter guide. Instead of writing longer pieces, I craft shorter tales that are multi-layered and full of symbolism. I also provide bonus materials with my stories, such as author’s notes, which gives additional insights, hints and perspectives about the story. I’ve had readers tell me that they’ve re-read my short stories and have found new gems with each read through. Read more

ReadWriteClub.com: Tell us about yourself and what inspired you to start writing.

The Legend of Tanisha Biggers’ First Review

After being available for download for about a month, The Legend of Tanisha Biggers (TLoTB) FINALLY got its first review. I’m sure there will be more to come as I continue to spread the word about this story, but, for me, the first review marks an important point in a story’s life cycle. It’s proof-positive that somebody, anybody, read the story.

And that’s what we authors write for, right? To be read? (Rhetorical.) More importantly, a review denotes that the story compelled someone to give their opinion of the story – good or bad. Without further ado, here is the review The Legend of Tanisha Biggers: Deluxe Edition: Read more

Could There be an Odder Odd Couple?:
The Unlikely Sisterhood of Tanisha and Vida in The Legend of Tanisha Biggers: a novelette

When I began writing this story, I had no idea it would include a bond between two characters that transcended friendship. Tanisha, the story’s main character, and her best friend Vida have different upbringings in the fictitious neighborhood of Black Haven. Tanisha was raised by her parents and has specific goals for her life after her parents’ deaths.
