Fantasy Technology – The Gadgets of The Veil

When I pitch The City of Veils, I tell people it’s basically a YA-Fantasy-meets-Batman. To that end, I wanted to make sure that Brynna didn’t just talk about being a vigilante, girlfriend got out there and beat up some bad guys. The problem, of course, is that Bruce Wayne has […]

About Felix – Meet the Characters

Howdy everybody! With The City of Veils arriving next month, I thought it might be fun to write a little bit about some of the main characters in the book. Last week, I talked about Brynna, so today, I thought I’d put the character spotlight on one, Felix Llobrega.

The Economics of Forcadel – World building in Fantasy

When I do world building in my fantasy books, I explore it from the point of view of my characters and flesh it out as I go. Around the second draft is really where I nail down what’s possible, impossible, and how things impact one another (and more importantly, how […]

Allies, Enemies, and In-Between – Political World Building in Fantasy Novels

Recent years not withstanding, I adore politics. The ancient art of compromise, negotiation, and while no one gets what they want always, at least there’s a solution that everyone can live with. Therefore, it’s probably no surprise that all my fantasy novels are heavy into the political world building. In […]

Things I’ve Learned As an Author

I’m coming up on my fifth year as a published author. Although it seems like yesterday I began this crazy journey, I know that I’ve grown creatively and professionally. I thought I’d take a blog post to write about all the things I’ve learned as an author. If you have […]

When It Just Happens: Write A Book in a Month

In general, I’m not a person who can just write a book in a month. It usually takes me upwards of 3 months to have a book ready for beta readers. However, last April, I experienced a magnificent unicorn-like moment: I wrote 76,000 words in 30 days.

How’d I do it? […]
