FAQ's

Here, you'll find answers to the most common questions about my book.


Q: Where did you come up with the title of the book?
A: One of the underlying themes in the book is that, similar to the train of thought, consequences are connected to one another.  Any action taken leads to a set of consequences.  Any action taken to deal with those consequences, leads to a new set, and so on.  In the book, there is a particular conversation (which takes place in a train yard), where an individual makes this observation.  Additionally, the two runaways hop a train during their travels.

Q: Did you get permission to use those Metallica lyrics in your book?
A: Yes, I received permission. This can be found on the copyright page at the beginning of the book.

Q: How long did it take to write the book?
A: I had the idea in my head for quite a while, but once I finally sat down to write, it took about two months (including research).  I tried to average about 2,000 words per day.  The two months doesn't include the publishing and editing process, though.

Q: Who designed the front cover?
A: The iUniverse design team brought my cover concept to life.

Q: Are those your legs on the cover of the book?
A: No, those are the legs of a teenage boy.
