Last year I talked with fellow novelists Tex Thompson and Dan Koboldt about going off the rails in writing and getting too involved with world-building. Now I’m dusting off that conversation in celebration of the publication of my deisle-punk dragon novella PETROLEA, available now 😉
“I’ve got this racial slur in my book that the fishmen use to describe humans!”
The book I’m writing now. Ahem.
Martin’s freaking neeps
J.R.R. Tolkien the superdork
What is this, a fantasy book I can’t stun a seagull with?
Brandon Sanderson always shows and never tells
Max Barry’s Lexicon,which could have been four books
Not everyone gets to be Catniss with a bow
What furthers the plot?
“Oh wow, this is your browser history that I’m reading right now.”
New Frontiers and its creepy and disgusting sex scenes
Literary fiction and the English professor contemplating adultery
Petrolea (my dieselpunk dragon story available soon!)
