FAQ

Question: Who are these mysterious champions you’re constantly talking to/about?
Answer: That would be you. No, seriously. If you’re here, reading my blog, reading my stuff, you are my champion. Okay, calling you MY champion is a bit possessive. It would be better to say you are a champion for me. A champion is, according to dictionary.com, a person who fights for or defends any person or cause. Hello champion, I am your person.

Question: Are you going to write a sequel for Life Reader?
Answer: Yes, but not for a while.

Question: How long does it take to write a book?
Answer: It varies. My shorter stories–like King Arthur and Her Knights I can crack out in under three weeks. (It takes probably 14 good days of writing.) Longer books, like Beauty and the Beast or Red Rope of Fate take me roughly five to six weeks. My LONG books, like Life Reader, take me about four to six months. But you’re asking the wrong question. What usually causes the hold up in releasing books is  editing. I have to edit a book a MINIMUM of two times. Typically I edit it three times and skim through it a fourth time to make sure all the formatting is ship-shape. On top of that I try to have my test reader read the book, as well as a proofreader.

Question: Are your books only available in ebook format? You don’t have them for sale in paperback?
Answer: Yes. For now. One day in the future (we’re talking the far off future in a distant galaxy) I hope to offer my books in paperback format, but for now I really love ebooks. I love how cheaply I can offer my stories to you guys, and I love the flexibility. If I flip through one of my manuscripts and notice errors I can 1) wallow in shame and then 2) correct it and upload the file again. If I offer books in print and I flip through the book and find an error I can 1) wallow in shame. The end.

  1. Do you have any idea how long it will be until you write the sequel to Life Reader? I really loved that story, though all of your books are awesome!

    • Well, I’m making a few BIG changes to my original plan for 2016 (and 2017) and part of the hang up is that I’m considering having both of my editors go over Life Reader instead of just one of them, which means it will spend a significant amount of time in the “shop” before I can work on the second one. It is one of my life goals, so I can assure you that you will see it, it’s just a matter of arranging my schedule. It’s sadly not looking good for 2016, but I’m hopeful for 2017!

  2. I was just wondering if you have any maps of the Continent in the Timeless Fairy Tales. If not I would love to draw one, so could you write a list of which countries border each other please?

    • First of all, +10 points for your name. I love it! Secondly, nope, there aren’t any maps of the Continent as of now, but I do hope to fix that in the near future. But! If you would love to draw a map send me an email (use the contact me tab, when I had my email out sitting around I got buried in spam mail) and I can shoot you the details! 🙂

    • Annnnd I just logged on my email and saw that you DID indeed email me! I’ll get back to you soon!

  3. Thank you so much! My older sister and I created an imaginary world when we were younger, and we made a huge map of it. Funny enough, we still use it, and I made a new map a few months ago.

    • That’s awesome! I’ve never had enough patience to make a detailed map–much less a big one. (Although I also lack all any artistic talent, so that doesn’t help my cause any!) 😉 I hope you keep up with your map–there’s so much writing stuff I’ve held onto that I have been able to use!
