Author Interview – Edward Mrkvicka

Have you ever had writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it? I can honestly say no – it only takes me about a month to actually write a book, because by the time I start typing it’s already completely written in my head. Put another way, the knowledge it requires to write a book worth reading most often takes a lifetime. Typing, not so much.

Can you share a little of your current work with us? The Sin of Forgiveness explains how today’s forgiveness is far removed from the forgiveness described in the Bible. It reveals the harm caused by secular forgiveness, and shows how and why true Christian forgiveness can right the wrong(s) and make all involved whole again.

How did you come up with the title? I prayed for a title that would please God and one was given to me.

Who designed the cover? The design staff at Crosslink Publishing.

Who is your publisher? Crosslink Publishing.

Why did you choose to write this particular book? The subject of forgiveness and how it has been prostituted from divine to meaningless has been on my mind for years – in a way, I didn’t chose it, it chose me.

What was the hardest part about writing this book? Getting started.  Once started it was an “easy” book to write as I was extremely motivated.

How do you promote this book? Any way I can. I’ve tried to take advantage of every potential possibility. I’ve written articles which give me a byline with book credit, I’ve done radio interviews, pod casts, virtual book tours. You name it, and I’m there. It’s the lay minister in me.

Will you write others in this same genre? Yes.

What are your goals as a writer? To touch the lives and hearts of as many as possible in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)? No.

What books have most influenced your life? Obviously, the Bible first and foremost, but I really don‘t think of the Word of God as a “book.” From a strictly writing perspective, In Cold Blood by Truman Capote.

Have you ever considered anyone as a mentor?” Other than my father, no.

Who is your favorite author and why? Truman Capote. His writing style and abilities have, in my opinion, yet to be duplicated.

Can we expect any more books from you in the future? Whether it’s good or bad, most definitely.

Have you started another book yet? Actually I just completed another book, The Gospel of “If.”
