Q & A With Author, Anthony Donnelly

Q & A With Author Anthony Donnelly about “49q? The Enigma Continues”

Question: ‘49q?’ is a strange title for a book, is there a story behind it?

49q cover 1Anthony Donnelly: A strange title for a strange book! When I was first working on the whole concept – not just this novel but the other two, the film, and the music album – back in the 1990s, I was doing a lot of channeling, occult stuff, and meditation… the expression ‘49q’ kept coming into my head again and again… I added the question mark and it was my working title for the project. I had no idea it would become the title for the duration. If you want to know what it means, you’ll have to read the book… that’s part of what it’s all about, solving the mystery.

Question: So what is ‘49q? The Enigma Continues’ all about?

Anthony Donnelly: Great question! Like most things that are very different, this began as an experiment. I’d never written a full-length novel before, only shorts, articles, and essays, so I wanted to break the mold and do something really different. My thinking was that this was like Joyce’s Uylesses, it would be so different that it either wouldn’t work, or it would… no inbetween. I began with some rough ideas, the main one being that I wanted to break with tradition and write the story in BOTH first and third person. I was questioning lots of things in life at the time, and I thought, “Why can’t a book be written in both?” It will take a few of the readers a while to get used to the style, but it’s worth it.

As to what the story is about… Life? It should give the reader a sense of exploration, self-discovery, mystery. There are many plots in it, so there’s something for almost everyone in it, and they all intertwine. It’s a little bit like unraveling a ball of string!

Question: This was all written a long time ago. Why has it taken so long to finally publish it?

Anthony Donnelly: Well, like many of my big projects, this was a little too ‘out there’. Nobody has ever written a trilogy of novels, a movie, and a music album as one project before. As a somewhat unknown author, no publisher wanted to take the risk on something this experimental, I doubt they ever will. The internet and ebook publishing has at least allowed me to bring this edition out… I’m just testing the waters, if people like it, perhaps I’ll release the other two novels. Who knows?

Question: This isn’t just a SciFi novel, though, is it?

Anthony Donnelly: No it’s not. That does make finding the right category rather difficult. It has SciFi elements, it has fantasy, contemporary themes, spiritual quotations, theological theories, there are many issues going on in the plots, even sexual abuse. As said, this isn’t your ordinary novel, and the reader is either going think it’s amazing or utter rubbish.

Question: Do you have a favorite part, was a certain part more enjoyable to write?

Anthony Donnelly: The whole thing was enjoyable to write – although it did almost make me go crazy trying to keep up with the timeline, especially when I was channeling some parts. The whole section on the Zfartendrill Maze Network was probably the best bit, though. Oh, and I really like the character of Zog the Destroyer – he’s funny and dangerous!

Here’s another quick sneak peek inside part of the enigma…

“A question is just an answer in reverse,” said Bob, turning away from the enquirer. Usually that was enough to dispel further dumb questions.

The barman had just left the young man’s Guiness to settle before re-pouring. Dire Straits’, “Money For Nothing “, cued on the jukebox.

“In that case,” began the young man, pausing to look Bob directly in the eyes, “Forty-nine Q.”

Bob’s jug of bitter fell immediately from his hand and smashed musically upon the floor. Without a further sound or hesitation, he grabbed his green jacket, and left.

“See ya, Bob!” the barman called after him . He presented the young man with his pint of Guiness. He took it and sat back in the corner. The pub carried on as though nothing had happened. Unfortunately that could not have been further from the truth. It was the start of something much greater.

“The Quasimodo Theory?”

“Yeah, like I base my whole life on a hunch.” He belched again.

Fanny was now fast asleep on his lap, her face buried in his crotch. J-R still snored in the corner, despite Stump’s efforts to annoy him by throwing each of his empty lager cans at his head. Blagg had called for room service about fifteen minutes earlier and complained that the bar only had four lagers left in it. He had snorted that it wasn’t fucking good enough, and if they didn’t want him to come down to the lobby stark naked and prove why he was called Blagg Hardon, they should fucking well get some cold lagers up there pronto – 49 cold lagers to be precise. Needless to say, five minutes later, room service rang the bell of the penthouse and forty-nine cold lagers were trollied in. Twelve of them now littered the floor where Jonny-Ray slept.

“But that still doesn’t answer the question of where you get your lyrics?”

#newreleases “Writing Buy The Book.”

“Balls-deep in Paradise.” coming later this Summer… a sneak peek…

I think this first draft introduction to the new work says it all… it’s a really tough piece to write, and I am so honored and thankful to have all of you as supporters and FRIENDS cheering me on in the background – don’t worry, I’ve changed the names to protect the guilty…!

"Balls-deep In Paradise" by Anthony Donnelly
“Balls-deep In Paradise” by Anthony Donnelly

Introduction:
MY Secondary School English teacher, William R. Malyszko (just to give him credit!), once told me, “Write what you know.”
How could he possibly have gleaned from the vacation story writing assignment for which I submitted THREE NOTEBOOKS – instead of the asked for three pages – that I had a passion for writing? The aforementioned comment and the ‘F’ rating of my assignment (thankfully) didn’t diminish my passion for the written word. It could have done, however, and it pains me that people of leadership/ role models abuse (or don’t acknowledge) the power they have. Thankfully, far from perturbing me from writing, it planted an unconscious seed in me instead (something teachers and other folks of influence are all too often unaware of) it pushed me further into the realm of seeking exciting experiences to write about.
As the ‘experiencer’ (made-up-word – hopefully!) of my life, even though I have been a CEO, an actor, a freelance writer, a world traveler, and a hobo, I never really thought of it as exciting, adventurous, or even entertaining. How many of us actually reflect back upon our lives and think they were of any real significance? People say we all have at least ONE book inside us, but who truly believes their life is worth writing about? Even the celebrities bow down to PR-heads that tell them their fans are dying to read something, but they never – rarely – write the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, as is read in later memoirs lamenting the fact, and admitting their slavery.

This, therefore, is the book I’ve always wanted to write, but never felt was interesting enough to dilute my time to writing. I am writing about what I know, but I think it is dull and boring – thank heavens others don’t feel the same way. To them, I have led a precarious, fascinating, adventurous, nefarious, and down-right naughty existence. I cannot cast judgement on that, I lived the life I was born into – I think I played the hand I was dealt rather well – and I learned some tricks along the way. I know I broke hearts, I had my heart broken. I know I’m not a saint, but I’m not going to Hell either (I don’t believe in that! Which I guess helps…?!)
Unlike many of my other published works, this is very current. It is set in 2014, the time of my first trip to Costa Rica, a mesmerizing and enchanting country for which I have nothing but praise and admiration – especially for their performance in the World Cup! I won’t pass comment about England.
As you will read in this book – if you, hopefully, read more than this meager introduction, I was sexually abused as a very young child, I became a struggling, young entrepreneur, I dabbled in the quagmire of ‘sexual identity’, I was that typical ‘almost-ran’ who could have been anything, yet choose to be nothing, I loved, I lost, I married, I divorced, I traveled, and went from riches to rags… Boring, I know, but somewhere along the way I lost myself (or who I thought I was) found myself, lost myself, and found something much greater…
Do yourself a favor, don’t read this book. Unless your life is totally in the toilet, or you are lost, or you just have sympathy with a fellow human being… What am I saying? Please buy this book, put it in your toilet for friends to read when they are constipated – it might make them laugh so much they’ll shit (can you say shit? Not a made-up-word!)
I always had the dream of writing a self-help book that was as entertaining as a novel, I never dreamed I would have to actually LIVE that life to make it come true. Well, this is it… part memoir, part fiction (most of it, I assure you!) This is what it is – how I view my life right now: this is who I am, I have nothing to hide. Attack me, if you will. Praise me, if you will. My ‘Henry the Egg’ artwork sums up my life.
I hope you enjoy this story, or at the very least your friends have some humor whilst they work our their shit in your toilet…
