Original Q&A –

John Valeri: You both live overseas. What challenges does this pose to the publishing process and, conversely, how do you feel that your world view benefits your writing?

Dave Koco: Time zones. With everyone so busy, and the time difference between Japan and the United States, it is hard to have phone conversations or even text messaging with your publisher at the same time to move stuff along faster. Face to face selling and marketing is pretty much out of the question right now but we’re certainly open to figuring out how to make that work in the future. In the meantime, Ray and I are focusing on reaching readers online now more than ever.

Buy Our Book: Operation Freakshow By Ray Fisher & Dave Koco https://www.amazon.com/Operation-Freakshow-Ray-Fisher-ebook/dp/B01ILABD5G

In this debut novel, a self-righteous team of vigilantes don luchador masks and bring their own swift brand of violent justice to anyone who would dare harm a child. Their actions however are quickly misinterpreted by the media and attention-starved online followers… and what was originally meant to halt the cycle of violence, only perpetuates it.

Advance praise for OPERATION FREAKSHOW:
“Authors Ray Fisher and Dave Koco write in a style that not only leaves you with the most haunting images in your mind, but leaves you wide awake at night with one single thought: ‘What could they possibly do next?’”
—David Tees, online reporter and reviewer

“Operation Freakshow is an insanely fun bumpy tale that left me wanting to learn more about these overly raw yet compelling characters in this startling universe.”
—Jeff Yager, entrepreneur and author, ATOM & EVE
