DJ from “MyLifeMyBooksMyEscape” sat down with Nicole Cushing to discuss “The Sadist’s Bible”, living in the mid west, Shirley Jackson, and the popularity of novellas.
Here is a sample:
DJ: What is the world of The Sadist’s Bible like?
NC: Most of the book takes place in our own world. (Specifically, in southern Indiana, Kentucky, and Virginia.) In other words, the Bible Belt. The culture of the Bible Belt plays a large role in the story. It shapes the social mores that Ellie, in particular, is trying to escape from.
But part of the story takes place in a mystical realm. (To avoid spoilers, I won’t divulge much about that place.)
DJ: What do you think readers will be talking about most once they finish it?
NC: Every reader interprets the book in a slightly different way. But from what I’ve seen so far on Goodreads, readers are talking a lot about how damned disturbing it is. (If you’re looking for pulpy action-adventure monster killing, look elsewhere.) They also seem to be talking about the depth afforded to the characters, which pleases me a great deal.
