If so, check out this new interview with yours truly over on Fantasy Faction. It’s really a great one, as Marc the interviewer has read all my stuff and asked pointed, detailed questions. I gossip about characters’ love lives, discuss my writing style, fans, the movie deal, and talk quite a bit about The Daylight War.
Speaking of Daylight War, I have turned a corner in the writing, switching from Inevera’s story arc, which is more or less done, and on to Leesha and Rojer’s. As I did, I immediately fell back into a comfortable rhythm with the loveable cast of characters around them.
This was a series of tweets I put out the other day which kind of speak for themselves:
No idea how much I’d missed Gared, Wonda, Erny & Elona till I started writing them again. They should have their own sitcom.
Gared enters. [applause] “I just chopped down a dozen trees! With my face!” [Laughter]
Elona: “Your father would have done it with his cock. Isn’t that right, Ernal?” [Laughter/applause]
Erny: “Yes, dear.” [Audience: “Awwww”]
Next week on The Hollowers: Wonda wears a dress to the Solstice dance to impress Callen Cutter. Hilarity ensues.
One more thing to throw on the gigantic pile of fun projects I will never have time for.
Speaking of which, I would kind of like to write up the 334 AR International Deliverer Debates:
Ahmann Jadir: “I’d like to take this opportunity to attack Arlen Bales on being a flip-flopper. First he’s for Sharak Ka, the war to end all wars, but then he’s against it. Sure, he calls you greenlanders heroes now, but it wasn’t three years ago he was spitting in the dust and calling you all cowards.”
Arlen Bales: “What my former friend isn’t telling you is that the Damaji are going to raise taxes to support a quagmire ‘Daylight War’, the whole purpose of which is to come and take your spears away. They also want to replace the Herb Gatherer healthcare system our communities depend on with a dama’ting-based “Sharum only” system. It’s bad for our seniors, and bad for Thesa.”
Moderator: “Mr. Bales, some sources are reporting that you lived in Krasia and even attended an Evejan Sharaj for several years. Do you have any comment on this?”
