Jennifer Hudock Discusses Who She Would Cast in a Dark Journeys Tale
If you’re not familiar with Ms. Hudock’s work, you can visit her official site, which is loaded with lots of goodies, including reviews, short story excerpts and podcasts of the ever popular Podcaturday and Goblin Market.
So without further ado, let me introduce you to one of my best buds Ms. Jennifer Hudock.
Q- I know you have been asked this question tons of times already, but could you tell us a little about the Dark Journeys stories?
A- The Dark Journeys Collection are a series of stories I wrote over the last five years. They are completely unrelated to one another, save that they are all characters on a dark journey in life. They are available currently on Amazon and Smashwords for $.99-$1.99, and will eventually be combined into an anthology collection I hope to put into print.
Q- What about Goblin Market? What’s that about?
A- My free serialized podcast novel, Goblin Market, is a story about a young woman who spent her life taking care of her younger sister. When her sister is abducted by the king of the goblins, Meredith ventures Underground to save her and bring her back home again. While there, she discovers the truth about who she is, and that in order to preserve everything she’s ever loved, she must make the ultimate sacrifice: herself.
Q- Can you tell us a little about the sequel to Goblin Market?
A- The sequel to Goblin Market, Jack in the Green, takes place about seventeen years after the original story. The main characters are Meredith’s two sons, Jack and Krayven. One grew up in the Upland, and the other as a prince. Heartbroken and devastated by the events in her past, Meredith hasn’t exactly been the picture perfect mother, and her son, Prince Krayven will do anything to win her love, including venture Upland to bring her son Jack home to her. But Krayven has a wicked agenda, for he is his father’s son.
Jack in the Green is set to kick off as a free podcast on my website this July, but you’ll definitely want to check out Goblin Market first.
Q- For those who don’t know, where can they find your work?
A- Goblin Market, as well as a few other projects, including short audio stories from time to time, and a weekly roundtable chat podcast called Podcaturday are all available for download on iTunes and my official website: http://jennybeans.net.
Q- Do you have any messages for your fans?
A- Thank you for believing in and supporting me. It means a lot to me to know there are people out there who enjoy and look forward to my work.
Q- How can people stay in touch with you?
A- Aside from my website, please feel free to add me on:
The next set of questions are some different ones that I thought all of you would love the answers to. Enjoy!
Q- Of all the Dark Journeys stories, which one is your favorite and why?
A- This is a really hard question because I really love them all. I become incredibly attached to my characters when I’m writing, but if I had to choose, my favorite story is one that hasn’t been published yet. It’s called Two Weeks and it will be the thirteenth story added to the full collection once I publish it this July.
Q- If you could take one of your Dark Journeys stories to make a movie out of, which one would you choose and why?
A- I would love to see Black Velveteen turned into a short movie because it is one of my all time favorite stories. It was the first time I’d ever delved into science fiction writing, and I was so happy with how it turned out.
Q- If you had the chance to pick the cast for said story, who would you pick and why?
A- I would love to see Edward James Olmos to play Detective Proctor. He is one of my favorite actors, and I think he would do the character justice.
Meagan Good would probably be able to do justice to Velvet.
Q- Which songs would make a good soundtrack for the movie?
A- “Black Velveteen” by Lenny Kravitz, which inspired the story would be a perfect song for the soundtrack.
