Meet +Joe Eliseon, in a personal interview on the author blog tour not only are his books funny, his interview hits the spot. 
AUTHOR BLOG TOUR

My Writing Process

Hello, everyone! My name is Joe Eliseon. I’m an attorney turned author, mostly. I have been tagged by an amazing young man named Schuyler Ebersol. You can find Schuyler’s blog at http://www.schuylerjebersolbooks.com/blog/. I feel about Schuyler the same way I felt about kids who tagged me on the playground. I wanted to tag him right back, but he was too fast for me.

What Are You Working On?

Right now, I’m representing a woman who ... Damn, can’t tell you about that. Attorney-client privilege and all. Too bad. But as far as books are concerned, last winter I put the finishing touches on my debut novel, The Seamless Web: A Legal Comedy (See Part 1 at  http://amzn.to/1v9TF4y). The novel is set in the 1980s in New York City and is about the comic adventures of a young associate attorney trying to survive in a big Wall Street law firm. I fancy it as somewhat picaresque. Right now I’m doing the marketing, promotion, selling, social media, participating in blog tours ... you know, the type of things authors do. I’m also working on my next novel, D.P.W., which is a comic fable about politics and public employees. I was a public employee on and off, mostly off, before I went to law school. After that, I plan to turn my attention to a fantastic story told from the standpoint of a second-grade boy who believes that his school janitor is in truth the Arthurian knight, Lancelot du Lac, in hiding. I have some thoughts, and a lot of material, for a novel called I.P.O., which will be a comedy about some honest, innocent, hard-working financial advisors who meet up with some Wall Street types, are sucked into the maelstrom of an initial public offering and lose their shirts. Talk about laughs. I also have notes for a series of almost-mystery stories about an incompetent insurance investigator, a man whose chief skill in life is making his friends feel sorry for him and come to his rescue. Then there’s my Adventures on the Italian Planet, set in a future dystopia in which the only survivors of the human race are Italians and all the women are clones of Sophia Loren. I admit, it’s a juvenile fantasy. At some point, I want to write a Star Trek novel because, while Capt. Kirk is a hero of mine, I cannot stand the Federation. It’s the European Union in space. I want to take that sucker out. Harry Mudd’s going to help me. I could go on and on, and on. On the other hand, I may do none of these things.

How Does Your Work Differ from Others of Its Genre?

What genre? I have been accused of starting my own genre, the Legal Comedy. But, frankly, I don’t know if I have another legal comedy in me. Okay, so I’m lying. I have a few, but they’re not well-formulated and they may never come to fruition. So I don’t count them. More generally, I regard myself as a comic novelist. If my work is different from other comic novelists’, it’s different for the same reason that my fingerprints are different. No two people are alike. Granted, I’m more different than most people because, through a few accidents of personal history, I stand outside the modern worldview. But to understand what I mean you’d either have to get to know me personally or read my work. I suggest the latter. It takes less time and it doesn’t cost as much.

Why Do You Write What You Do?

I’ve spent most of my life as a civil litigator, the kind of lawyer who takes civil lawsuits to court. There are two types of civil litigators: plaintiffs’ and defense litigators. You would think that practicing law on both sides would make you a better lawyer. But it doesn’t work that way. Mostly, we all tend to specialize on one side or the other. This specialization arises from a fundamental difference in worldviews, with which I will not bore you here. The same sort of difference divides authors. What we write depends on our fundamental worldview, spiced by our individual circumstances. I know about lawyers, politicians, corporate types and kids because I have been, or have been close to, all of them. I write comedies because, though I have had my share of suffering and disappointment, at root I believe that human suffering has value and that, for lack of a better phrase, God is in his high heaven and all will be well with the world. I also believe that life has a narrative structure. I can’t write tragedies because in tragedies, all the principals die and nobody winds up happy. In comedies, no matter what troubles the principals endure, in the end, they win through and can laugh at them. I guess this makes the Odyssey a comedy, as opposed to the Iliad.

How Does Your Writing Process Work?

Like P.G. Wodehouse, I make detailed outlines. When new ideas hit me, usually to the accompaniment of running water, I scribble them on sticky notes and I stick them on the outline. I systematically work out all the plot problems or try to. But at some point, whether I’ve finished the outline or not, I get the urge to start writing. Once I start, the story and the characters take over and I write until I’ve written myself into a corner. Then I go back to the outline and work out the problems. Then I start writing again. I repeat the process until I finish. Then I start reading to make sure my characters are consistent throughout. Sometimes this requires changing dialogue. Sometimes it requires re-constructing entire scenes. Sometimes it requires restructuring the plot. When I’m through, I let the thing sit for a while and I read it again. I correct mistakes, make changes and fill in details. I may read it two or three more times, until my cash runs out. I did all of this with The Seamless Web. It seems to work. Within this framework, I can be very disciplined for stretches. Sometimes, I get inspired and the words come pouring out. Sometimes it’s like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Sometimes it’s like pulling your own teeth. You call this a process?

Who's Got Next?

Tagged next is my pal, S.R. Carson, who, not satifisfied with being a fighter jock, decided to become a heart surgeon. His first novel, To Love With Hate, explores love, hate, insanity, myocardial infarctions, marriage, divorce, malpractice, revenge and murder. His busy surgery schedule prevented him from throwing in the decline and fall of the Roman Empire. Maybe he’ll get to that in his next novel. Did I mention that he’s also got this doctor’s thing about slimy lawyers? I may have to get into that in my next novel. But let S.R. tell you all about it next week on his blog at www.SRCarson.com.
