I've had the pleasure of knowing Blake Crouch for several years now, ever since he submitted the fabulous "The Newton Boys' Last Photograph" to the Hint Fiction anthology. He and Joe Konrath have ruled the indie publishing world, starting with their nasty short story Serial and then branching out to publish their own works. Blake self-published his thriller Run, which went on to sell over 100,000 copies, and then published Pines with Amazon's thriller imprint Thomas & Mercer (its sequel, Wayward, was released back in September). Pines was such a success that Fox is turning it into an event series to premiere next summer with so many top-notch stars I can't even list them all here. Blake took some time out of his busy schedule to talk about the Wayward Pines series, Kindle Worlds, self-publishing, and Confidence Girl, which features one of Blake's favorite characters Letty Dobesh.
