Title-Days Gone Bad

Series- Vesik # 1

By Eric R. Asher

Genre- Urban Fantasy



My name is Damian Valdis Vesik. I am a necromancer, an ability feared and hated as much as the powers my master and I set ourselves against. We’ve vanquished many evils, but now something is releasing an old darkness, forcing us to hunt an enemy beyond anything I’ve faced before. I was already busy enough with vampires, fairies, witches, Watchers, weddings, and … damn, I need a vacation.

Author Interview

Author Interview:

Tell us about your latest book, including its genre. Does it cross over to other genres?

Wolves and the River of Stone is an urban fantasy that continues the adventures of the necromancer, Damian Vesik. You’ll see a lot of familiar faces and locales from Days Gone Bad. I think most books cross over into other genres at some level.

What can we expect from you in the future?

I have some more ideas to work with in Damian’s world, but I’m also toying with some stories set in entirely different worlds.

Generally, how long does it take you to write a book?

The first draft can take anywhere from six weeks to three months. It varies greatly based on how much time I have to sit down and write. Usually after the second draft we’ll start the editing process. That can take significantly longer than the first draft, but I can’t overstate how important it is.

What are some of your favorite things to do?

I’ve long been a gamer. My spare time growing up was spent as a mallrat in the local arcades and bookstores. Outside of games, I read, play the cello and guitar, and collect Transformers toys.

Do you have a favorite author? Favorite book?

Right now, at this moment, my favorite author is Neil Gaiman. What has always struck me about his work, ever since The Sandman, is the flow of the story and the flow of the prose. Everything is clean and the visuals are stunning. His latest, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, is no different. You’ll also hear me talk about C.S. Friedman quite a bit. If you haven’t read Black Sun Rising, and you’re a fan of epic fantasy, I would strongly urge you to check it out.

Are you a member of any author groups – RWA, critique groups, etc.?

I drop in on from time to time. They provided some invaluable feedback and I also met my editor, Laura Matheson, through them.

What do you think of critique groups in general?

They can be a fantastic source of unbiased feedback. The key is finding a group that works for you. I love the diplomatic environment of Critters where they frown on authors eviscerating each other.

How long have you been writing – have you always wanted to be a writer?

I’ve been writing casually since high school. It was 2005 when I decided I wanted to write an entire novel. I spent a year writing an excessively long space opera. After reading it, I thankfully realized It was terrible. I’ve had several people ask me if I thought it was a waste of time because of that. Definitely not. It was a fantastic learning experience.

How did you work through writer’s block?

Usually some good music and a long walk will knock some sense into me.

Ocean or mountains?

Ocean view from the mountains.

Party life or quiet dinner for two?

I enjoy large groups, but a quiet dinner for two is my favorite.

Dogs or cats?



Can you share the playlist you listened to while writing ‘Days Gone Bad’ with us?


Music played a role in my life long before I realized it. I went through my school career in orchestra, was raised playing the cello. I eventually picked up a guitar, wrote some songs, and joined a band. After that didn’t work out so well, I settled down into writing. These are some of the songs that helped me hammer out the first draft of Days Gone Bad.


Open Hand – Her Song

Open Hand – You and Me

My Chemical Romance – The Ghost of You

My Chemical Romance – Cemetery Drive

Brand New – Luca

Paramore – Misery Business

Can you share your idea of the perfect soundtrack to ‘Wolves and the River of Stone’’ with us?


Absolutely! Music has always been a large part of my life. I grew up in orchestra, playing the cello. I’ll list out some of the band and album names, and then the tracks I actually listened to while writing several of the scenes. There were many, many more, but I’ll keep the list at a reasonable length. :)
