Author Interview – Anastasia Faith

How did you come up with the title? The main story of For the Future Generations is my protagonist traveling time to eight hundred years in her past, when America was destroyed after having aborted an entire generation of children. She hopes to stop America’s downfall, but instead learns that some things in the past can’t be changed because they were meant as lessons for future generations.

Can you tell us about your main character? Matthia Hefner is an outgoing teenager that is coming of age in a thirty-first century dictatorship. She has been assigned work in an abortion clinic, and thinks nothing of it, like most in her society. Then she meets a strange man named Keegan Wilcox…

Who is your publisher? I am. I hope to get a deal with a traditional publisher one day, because I want to adopt children and I think the advance checks would be nice. But for now, self-publishing is a fast, easy way to make my work public and fulfill my dream of becoming an author.

Will you write others in this same genre? Yes

Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)? Not yet, but I hope to one day!

Who is your favorite author and why? Sigmund Brouwer. His books are

Can we expect any more books from you in the future? Oh, yes! For the Future Generations is the first in a trilogy. I am in the process of rewriting the second, so I am going to publish another book in the meantime, titled A Novella Called “Launch Day”. I have about six more lined up that I hope to publish in the next year or two.

What are your current writing projects now? I am currently finishing A Novella Called “Launch Day” . Once I’ve submitted that for editing, I am going to write a short story for Asimov’s Science Fiction.

Are you reading any interesting books at the moment? Right now, I’m reading some books on creative writing and for writing science fiction and fantasy. My friend bought me C.S. Lewis’ Out of the Silent Planet, and my mom’s coworker wrote a book called No Heroes. I haven’t had a lot of time for reading recently, but I hope to finish them soon.

How do you promote this book? Until now, I’ve been using social media. I’ve bought some author business cards and bookmarks, and I’m going to start using those soon.

What was the hardest part about writing this book? Not coming off as judgmental or cheesy.

Have you ever had writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it? Yes, I’ve had writer’s block. When it happens, I take a walk outside, star gaze, read the writing prompt bootcamp I downloaded from TheWritersDigest.com, or just wait for inspiration from things that happen during the course of my week.

In a thirty-first century dictatorship where population control is enforced and knowledge of truth is prohibited, a teenager discovers secrets about America’s past and her own nation’s future.

In the first book of the “For a Generation” series, fourteen-year-old Matthia Hefner has discovered the grim truth about abortion and its effects on society. She embarks on a time travel mission to the past with a plan to save a nation destroyed by abortion, as well as to glean knowledge to save her own country. Can she save the nation and its people in time, or will it be forced to suffer the consequences for its actions?
