PRLog - Jan. 13, 2012 - FREMONT, Calif. -- There are those who say that Friday the Thirteenth brings bad luck upon all. But Michael Vorhis, author of suspense thriller novel ARCHANGEL, disagrees. "Writing success has nothing to do with luck," he insists. "It comes with focus, instinct, and skill. Maybe it's mostly luck for other authors, for example an author like that Chaffey guy who wrote SWIMMING WITH CROCODILES, but not for me."
ARCHANGEL and SWIMMING with CROCODILES
Will Chaffey sees it a little differently. "The only luck I had, other than some ill fortune making the acquaintance of the occasional egomaniac, was that I'm very lucky to be alive after my low-odds outback dance with death, chronicled in my book. You can't write a true-life adventure without having one. Maybe that Vorhis guy was lucky enough to stick with fiction. Safer."
"And the only safety in my suspense-mystery novel ARCHANGEL is that it's safe to say it out-ramps nonfiction. They're reading it across 17 countries."
"Didn't know your mother traveled that much."
"Well I wouldn't deny anyone's mother a bit of world-class fiction. ...Actually I think even your mother prefers my book above all others."
"That's because it's not about her son almost being eaten alive, like my incredible book SWIMMING WITH CROCODILES is."
"Is that what your book is about?"
"You know it is; you couldn't put it down."
"Just my rotten luck. The way it turned out I mean."
The debate relentlessly rages. It will likely extend to Saturday the Fourteenth, and beyond.
