The Geekery Market Spotlight: j.e. pittman

Welcome to The Geekery Market (formerly the Muggles Market). We are excited for our next event – just in time for all your geeky holiday shopping needs! As usual, we’ll be introducing you all to our artisans/authors/artists, sponsors, and activities for the Market every week as we get closer to the big day.

Please allow me to introduce to you one of our artisans, j.e. pittman. j.e. pittman is an author dabbling in many speculative worlds. He blurs the borders between genre and crafts salient lies to tell a measure of truth. His work has been described as: capriciously chimeric, dreamlike, and a vivid enigma with indelible images stamped on your brain.

Answers to our 5 Geeky Questions

Tell us about the geeky goodness you’ll be bringing to the next Geekery Market! Books, books, and more books! I’ll have copies of my amazing Felix Chance series: Felix Chance and Second Chance, as well as the Hidden Villains Arise and Behind the Shadows anthologies. I’ll also have the first book I ever published: 98 Rabbits: An Assemblage of Words available. Felix Chance is a walking Twilight Zone with a dash of Doctor Who. Second Chance ups the ante with a soupcon of Quantum Leap as he relives his past lives. Luck is his greatest skill, and until he’s lost, he can always win.

How did you get started doing what you do?Oh that’s a long story, but I’ll skip ahead to just a few years ago when I published a book for the first time. 98 Rabbits was the first back in 2019. I’ve been writing my whole life, but this was the first time I had the guts to go ahead and put my work out there. I wrote another book after that and then started writing web serials and I really enjoyed that format. I gathered the first twenty-four of Felix into Volume One back around the new year and then continued releasing the serial…Second Chance contains up to episode 62 now and even more episodes are publishing now.

What’s an item you are bringing that you are really excited about? MReally, all of my books. I have a little something for everyone with my stories – Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, Scifi, even some Horror.

What else would you like everyone to know about your wares? That you’ll find a great tale to be told in the pages I’m bringing.

What’s your favorite holiday story? The Princess Bride..
