Welcome to my stop on the Grady Whill and the Templeton Codex Virtual Book Tour! I am excited to share an interview with the author, as well as the tour wide giveaway! 

Interview With Author Carole P. Roman 

What made you decide to write about superheroes?

I actually didn’t know I was going to write about superheroes. My sons were kicking around the idea. One of them is a writer and then decided against it. I didn’t want to write so much about superheroes as much as I wanted to write about the great potential that everybody has. I created Grady Whill with the notion that he was pretty ordinary and that the idea of being a superhero was completely unattainable for him. Then, I wanted us all to be on his journey with him, perhaps seeing ourselves in the process.

What formats will this book be available in? E-book, physical copies, audiobook?

Dan McGowan has done a great job with the audiobook. It is on Kindle and can be purchased as a paperback or hardcover.

Who created your cover, and did you have any input?

My younger son is actually in charge of covers. He has a vision of what he thinks will work. He picks a designer, and then we all choose the cover that embodies the story and characters. I love this cover. Leen Roslan did the artwork and did an amazing job.

Will there be other books about this superhero high school?

I started book two yesterday, and oh boy, you wouldn’t believe what has happened!

What would you choose and why if you could have any type of superhero power?

I already have a superpower. I am a mom.
