Louis's book, Die Laughing, is high up on my TBR list. It's just been released, and I was lucky enough to get an early copy. The first page had me in stitches. You may remember Louis as one of the featured authors on my 5,000 hit giveaway HERE.
If you were one of the lucky ones to win his book, let him know what you think when you read it!
Without further ado, welcome to Unwritten, Louis! Please tell us a little about yourself. What do you do when you're not writing about aliens in 1950's NYC?
From your book description, it says:
"Die Laughing, a humorously dark science-fiction novel, is set in the 1950s of flying saucers, communist paranoia, and live television."

What inspired you to come up with this unique idea?
How long did it take you to complete Die Laughing, and do you have any interesting stories to tell about the research process?
I love snooping on author websites, like yours HERE. Among the many interesting things you're involved in, I see that you're working towards an MFA in creative writing at Florida International University. How has that experience been for you so far? Would you recommend terribly green writers like myself to invest in an MFA program?
You've had lots of publishing credits over the years. When did you start the serious business of writing for publication? What genres have been your favorite to write?
So, I have to know--where did you come up with the name for your blog--The Writer From Haunted Cave?
Good question! It goes back to my love of 1950’s sci-fi and horror movies. I collect them. Most are hanging in my writing room. One of my favorites is of a very scantily glad girl in the embraces of a pickle-green squid creature who lives in a cave. The 1959 movie is called Beast From Haunted Cave. A good friend of mine suggested I call the blog Writer From Haunted Cave, which I loved. We did a take-off of the poster and used it for the logo.
And now, what you've all been waiting for...today's random question: What aspects of a book make you stop reading and/or throw it against a wall?
Finally, Louis, would you be so kind as to share an excerpt from Die Laughing?
Thank you so much for visiting today, Mr. Lowy, and I wish you a ton of success!
