Author Interview with Jamey Sultan

Jamey Sultan is a 24-year old paramedic from the United States with a bachelors degree in Emergency Health Services. He started writing in December 2019 and fell in love with it, specifically the LitRPG subgenre. He enjoys reading, rock climbing, walking with his wife, and stalking his cat Freddie around his apartment. He falls asleep listening to stand-up comedy. His goal is to write a LitRPG series that he would love to read.

When did you first start writing fiction?

I first started writing fiction in December 2019 as I was finishing up paramedic school. I’d wanted to write LitRPG for a while by that point and finally felt ready to take the plunge.

What kind of books do you enjoy reading? Paper or eBook?

I prefer audiobooks.

What’s your favorite under-appreciated novel?

Dominion of Blades. It’s a great LitRPG and gets less credits than it deserves.

Of your books, which is your personal favorite? Why?

Fragment of Divinity because it’s my only book 😉

You can make one LitRPG book (not your own) a movie. Which is it and why?

I’d love to see a movie or TV show about Dungeon Crawler Carl. It would be perfect for fan interaction.

Do you believe in writer’s block?

Not really. If you write consistently every day a story just happens. Once you’re a few minutes into your writing for the day the block usually goes away.

Are you an outliner or pantser?

A pantser. I have maybe a tiny idea of where I want my story to go, but no idea how I’m getting there.

What is your writing process like?

I try to write 1000 words a day. Once my first draft is done I have to sort through the incomprehensible muck I’ve written and turn it into a book. Then I send it to an editor who tells me all the stuff I forgot. After that I fix my mistakes and cry for a bit before hitting publish.

How many hours a day do you write?

Probably 3-5

Who are some of your favorite authors of all time?

  • Aleron Kong
  • Dakota Krout
  • Matt Dinniman
  • Tao Wong

Where do you get your ideas?

I went to the zoo the other day and came out with a notepad full of new mob and quest ideas.

What kind of research do you do, and how long do you spend researching before beginning a book?

I google things in the moment

What can fans expect from you next?
