1. What will you be sharing with the group on April 12 at the Get Down With The Awethors event? Free book giveaway, sneak peek, merchandise, holding a competition, discussion?

I will have a free book giveaway; I will also give away my introduction to my book with background sounds from Hell on CD. I am getting a few more prizes to give away as well. I do plan on also doing a discussion, as my fiction thriller On Earth As It Is In Hell definitely sparks conversation.

2. What is your latest book or work, and where can we find it?

My book is entitled On Earth As It Is In Hell it can be found on my website at on earth as it is in hell_cortinajackson It is also available at,, Barnes and, and Apple iBookstore.

3. What drives you to write? Music, an interest in the human mind, is it cathartic for you?

Writing is therapeutic for me. Everything that I want to express, whether it is sadness, joy, disappointment, or excitement, I am able to put my thoughts on paper and truly make the reader feel what I feel. I also want them to see it through my eyes, so I am able to paint a vivid picture.

4. What’s your favorite book in the world? One you couldn’t imagine having lived your life without reading.

I really enjoyed reading a book by Mary K. Baxter titled A Devine Revelation of Hell; it was the first book that I read from cover to cover. It opened my eyes and intrigued me. I sought to write a book that would intrigue people without insulting them or forcing them to believe in anything. This is definitely that book, and it has been compared to Constantine and Devil’s Advocate, both starring Keanu Reeves.

5. When will you be at the Awethors event on April 12? All day or at a certain time?

I plan to be there all day!! I truly cannot wait to meet so many amazing people! Meet you there!
