Interview with J Lenni Dorner

ffwbt_banner_full_web

Today I’m pleased to be hosting a guest post from J Lenni Dorner.


What originally drew you to writing?

It was just something I started doing when I was eight years old. It turned out that I was good at it. Later on, I found out that I come from an exceptionally long line of storytellers and tale-keepers. One elder said that it is part of my spirit. I didn’t know about any of this when I started. I just did it, the same way that some children just start coloring or throwing a ball around, because it felt natural.

Which writers inspired – or continue to inspire you – to write?

R.L. Stine, Stephen King, J.D. Salinger, Kevin Smith, and J.K. Rowling have all inspired me.

 What most inspires your stories?

The voices in my head, the random prompts, and the crazy world around me- inspiration comes from everywhere. The trick is in knowing which bits to use, which to store for later, and which to send off.

Do you have a special time of day that you prefer to write?

I prefer to write when I’m alone and it’s quiet.

Do you have any tips on overcoming writer’s block?

 Go write a letter of resignation.

Are you an e-book person, or do you prefer to own a hard copy?

For most books, I’m happy with either. When it comes to my favorites, I want both.

Give us an insight into your main character. What does he/she do that is so special?

The story takes place when one character is visiting the other in a care facility. They have a picnic lunch outside. Grammy tells the whimsical story of how she met her husband. To divulge more would ruin the unexpected ending.

What genre do you prefer to write in, and why?

I prefer to write in speculative fiction. The natural style of my writing flows toward a dark side, and I have a love of throwing in that which borders on possible just enough to make the mind itch. I love itchy minds!

Have you ever been involved in a collaborative project with another author? If not, is it something you would like to do in future?

Yes, I’m working on a fantasy project with another author right now. A fellow writer and I are also kicking around the idea of an advice book for high-school aged teenagers – your basic list of “no one told me” items that come up when you turn 18. Nothing preachy sounding, like do this or don’t do that, more of a “Here’s how credit works,” and “Why you can get rejected simply by only applying to one college.” We’re strongly considering taking it to Twitter for input. (Drop thoughts in comments if you happen to have any!)

Do you set yourself a daily word target? If so, how often do you meet it?

I only set that in November for NaNoWriMo. Some days “writing” is about rewriting, editing, marketing, blogging, and social media activity. Yes, writers write. But writers that want a paycheck have to wear several other hats, especially the sales one.

What do you do to get book reviews?

That’s an excellent question. I hope to have an excellent answer for this question one day. At the moment, I can only speculate. I think WLC has a program that helps with this.

What are your views on social media for marketing?

 It is absolutely vital. There are good ways to do it, such as interacting with and making friends with people and getting them interested in your work the same way you would a “real live person” (because, and I think sometimes people forget this, but those are real live people out there). There are BUY MY BOOK also bad ways OMG YOU SHOULD BUY MY BOOK to do DID YOU BUY IT YET it, such as slamming people with BUY BUY BUY MY BOOK ads that no one wants to BUY IT BECAUSE I AM POOR AND AM BEGGING see, and thus will ignore. I do worry that the new 2015 Facebook Pages rules are going to make it difficult for authors to connect with readers, as we’ll no longer be able to mention that we (or others we know) have a product out there in the world that is purchasable without facing hurdles. Different sites have interpreted how this will play out, but for now, it’s something to be cautiously consider.

 J Lenni Dorner: WRONG!

My most recent publication is the short story titled “EGOT and the Pond King” in the anthology “Wrong!” (Southern Star Publications, December 2014). I was inspired by two different writing prompts. The first was a requirement to enter the contest- the phrase “I have a list and a map. What could possibly go wrong?” had to appear. The second prompt was a bit of humor about names and American entertainment awards- it lends to a joke inside the story. (EGOT is an acronym for “Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony.” A distinction officially held by twelve people.)

I also spent my NaNoWriMo November working a fantasy book entitled “The Dagger in the Darkrise.” I was inspired over a decade ago by an image of a woman with a sword. The story is finally coming together properly after all this time. I’m not sure it would have made it before, as the cast is diverse (though sometimes that isn’t as heavy a factor in the fantasy genre). Timing is a big factor in the publishing industry.

Interview with Charlotte Henley Babb

ffwbt_banner_full_web

Today I’m delighted to welcome Charlotte Henley Babb to my blog page to answer some questions about her writing habits, and share some of her work.

What originally drew you to writing?

I loved reading, and when I read Little Women in the third grade, I decided to be like Jo March and be a writer. I liked being able to make up stories about fantastic things that did not happen in my life. There is a part of me that gets warm and sparkly when I say I am a writer, even when the words are not flowing as I would like.

Which writers inspired – or continue to inspire you – to write?

Along with Louisa Alcott, I read Robert Heinlein, Lucy Maud Montgomery, and I read all the science fiction I could get my hands on. I found that novels set in the English countryside in the 1700s or Agatha Christie’s mystery settings were just as alien to me as other planets. I enjoy seeing how others view the world, both my favorite authors and my favorite characters.

My current inspiration is Sir Terry Pratchett, with Neil Gaiman as a close second. I read Jim Butcher and John G. Hartness. I like Alexander McCall Smith’s No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency as well.

What most inspires your stories?

My primary inspiration these days is Netflix. I enjoy seeing how an arc for both a character and a series develops over a season, and I’ve had to limit my binge watching to have writing time. I consider how a story would change if different actors played the parts, women instead of men, older people instead of younger ones. I’m fascinated by the characters who live on the edge of society in the gray spots of the law, who sink to the dark side or who prevail despite personal losses.

Do you have a special time of day that you prefer to write?

I like to write in the mornings, but my day job sometimes gets in the way, unless I go to bed early enough to get up at five or so. I’ve learned to take some writing time when I get home from work before starting on something else. I’m not a night owl, so I want to be able to stay awake when I am conjuring.

Do you have any tips on overcoming writer’s block?

Keep typing. If you peck out a word and a word and a word, at some point, the rockslide will occur, and if not, you have shown up to do the work.

Are you an e-book person, or do you prefer to own a hard copy?

I read on my phone and on the computer screen as much as I do on paper. It’s not that I don’t like paper, but e-books are cheaper and don’t take up space. I have four boxes of books to carry off to goodwill or the library as soon as I can get them loaded in my car.

Give us an insight into your main character. What does he/she do that is so special?

Elvira O’Sullivan has not only survived her nasty childhood as a prostitute, but has made an empire of women workers, providing them with housing, food and education, much like the mill villages in the south. Her workers produce items that her shopkeepers sell, and that she trades with others. Her airship brothel is literally the highest class (at least in altitude), providing not only pleasures of the body, but of information discreetly gathered and dispensed among her clients and for her own investments. She is a smart cookie, but she does not trust anyone, not even her bodyguard and partner, Zulie Mensah. Her great strength in her business operations is a weakness in her own life, one that she must face to accomplish her goal. She must learn that there is always risk of betrayal, and that there is no way to control all the variables.

What genre do you prefer to write in, and why?

I like fantasy, science fiction and steampunk. Each has its own flavor, like fine chocolates, an otherworldliness that I enjoy. I’ve never felt very comfortable in the mundane world, and often wonder if the mother ship will ever come and get me.

Have you ever been involved in a collaborative project with another author? If not, is it something you would like to do in future?

I wrote with a writers’ group on a shared world project, which was amazing fun until philosophical differences separated me from the group. I was devastated at the time, and since then I write on my own.

I’d be willing to collaborate with someone else if we could agree on a vision for the work and find a common voice for the project.

Do you set yourself a daily word target? If so, how often do you meet it?

I have at times set a word count, but I find that if it is only a mechanical thing, I tend to write rants and whines rather than useable storyline. I am working on keeping a schedule of writing every day for 15 minutes. I can sometimes write a thousand words in 15 minutes if I know where I am going to start. Sometimes it takes much longer.

What do you do to get book reviews?

I ask for them, writing to bloggers or connecting with reviewers on LinkedIn. I’ve done a number of review swaps, an “I’ll read yours if you’ll read mine” sort of thing.

What are your views on social media for marketing?

To misquote W. Somerset Maugham, there are three rules for social media marketing, and nobody knows what they are.

Guest Post – Sarah Daltry, author of ‘Dust’

ffwbt_banner_full_web

Today’s guest post is from author Sarah Daltry, with an interview, and information on her current novel, ‘Dust’.

Dust Cover

An Interview with Sarah Daltry

Who is your audience?

People like me, who value words and ideas as much or more than plot.

Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.

I am an introvert and a nerd. I’ve written more than 15 novels, but only five are available. Dust is a YA fantasy/philosophical fantasy novel. I also wrote No Such Thing as Perfect, which is contemporary women’s fiction/literary fiction about growing up, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock: A Modern Reimagining (literary fiction based on the poem), Backward Compatible: A Gamer Geek Love Story, and the vampire NA urban fantasy (18+) Bitter Fruits.

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?

Dust came to me one morning and I don’t really know what inspired it. It’s the story of growing up amidst war when the world has survived by holding secrets. Alondra must navigate the past, specifically that of her mother, to learn about what led to the events that destroyed her kingdom, and she must face the darkest parts of herself.

Do you have any unusual writing habits?

Not really, although I am a binge writer. I will write 1/3 of a novel in one day and not write for two weeks.

What authors or books have influenced you?

Hemingway, Salinger, The Book Thief, The Lovely Bones

What are you working on now?

A bunch of different things – contemporary realism, literary fiction, and fantasy

What is your best method or website for book promotion?

I don’t really have one. I don’t think I think like most people and I seem to struggle with connecting with them

Do you have any advice for new authors?

Write what is in your heart, not what other people tell you to write.

What is the best advice you have ever heard?

You can’t take it with you. 🙂

What are you reading now?

Mrs. Dalloway

What’s next for you as a writer?

Not sure, really.

3 or 4 books for deserted island?

The Catcher in the Rye, The Sun Also Rises, Frankenstein, and Dracula

What inspires you to write?

I need to. I need it like oxygen. I never stop writing, even though I stop talking to people

Tell us about your writing process.

“Sit down at a [computer] and bleed.”

Are you an outliner or a seat of the pants writer?

Both, but mostly I don’t plan.

If you are an outliner, what do you use to outline? Whiteboard? Software?

Notes that make no sense to anyone but me.

Do you create character sketches before or during your writing?

Both – depends on how things come to me.

Do you listen to or talk to your characters?

Yes, all the time.

How do you interact with your characters while you are writing?

We talk – and I convince people it’s totally normal to live with characters in your head all the time.

How did you decide how to publish your books?

Self-published and small press, because I’m not marketable apparently.

What do you think about the future of book publishing?

I don’t know. I don’t have a lot of hope for the future of humanity, not just in books, and publishing is just another business that gives millions of dollars for One Direction porn, but has lost interest in the human condition.


Dust

Dust is the story of a young girl, Alondra, in another world. It’s a world that normally would be draped in magic – the kind of world traditional in fantasy. There are castles and kingdoms and all those fun fairy tale elements, but it’s also a world with futuristic features, such as teleportation and giant glass towers that reach into the sky. Picture something out of the Final Fantasy series, with less steampunk.

There used to be magic in Alondra’s world, but well before she was born, all of the kingdoms were part of war. It was a war that happened because human beings grew too powerful. They wanted more and they wanted it for themselves. No longer was man satisfied to have the power of the gods and use it for the greater good; now he wanted to be a god. Because of the fear of magic and the damage it wrought, it has been suppressed and Alondra only knows it as a hobby.

When a new villain appears, though, and the world so desperate for peace and security is shattered anew, Alondra sets out on a journey through the past. She soon discovers that the secrets people keep in order to preserve a facade of safety run deep.

I see this as a fantasy novel woven through with philosophy and moral questions, as well as a sprinkle of romance. Although there is a love story, it is not about romance, but about coming of age, about learning who you are and understanding your role in the world, and about independence and choice (as well as the associated consequences).

Take the journey with Alondra! The book is available now! Read a sample here!


GOOGLEPIC Sarah Daltry is the author of No Such Thing as Perfect, Dust, Backward Compatible, Bitter Fruits, and The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock. As a former English teacher and YA library coordinator, Sarah has always loved books and her passion in life is writing – weaving tales of magic and beauty. She originally wrote romance, but Sarah’s real focus is lyrical and introspective fiction that gets to the heart of being whole.

Sarah is an obsessive Anglophile who spends more time watching BBC TV than any human being should, as well as a hardcore gamer, feminist, hermit, and sarcastic nerd. She’s extremely introverted and craves quiet and solitude, but she does enjoy hearing from readers. Find her online at http://sarahdaltry.com

Into the Publishing Minefield

I’ve been trying to garner some interest in ‘Fortune’s Thief’, and having failed to find an agent, I’ve been contacting independent publishers to see whether anyone would be interested in publishing it.

So far, I have had two contract offers, but I won’t be accepting either of them.  I had no idea when I started sending out my manuscript that it would be such a minefield.

The first offer I had was from a publisher whose employees are illiterate.  The email accompanying the contract, and subsequent correspondence was so badly written I had to read it three times before I could understand what they were trying to say.  They were also planning to put it out exactly as I’d sent it to them, with no editorial input or modifications whatsoever.  I’ve checked it the best I can, and had a few friends review it, but I have absolutely no doubt that it would benefit greatly from some professional editing.  Having read up about these guys on the Absolute Write Authors Beware section, they’re definitely one to avoid.

So I sent it off to a second publisher and had a grammatically correct response on nice headed paper, asking for a printed manuscript. Then followed three weeks of watching the doormat, wondering when a letter was going to land. In the interim, however, I looked them up on my new favourite forum page (Absolute Write Authors Beware) and found that many people were reporting bad experiences with them.  These guys appear professional, but are in essence a vanity press and will charge authors for publishing, so when I had the contracts arrive today, I wasn’t in the least surprised to find that they wanted £2,300 to publish my book.  If they had been up-front about it, and indicated on their website that contribution-based publishing was one of their possible routes, I wouldn’t have wasted my time or theirs in submitting to them.

I’m now going back to a third publisher, who expressed interest about the same time I heard from the second publisher to see whether we can still work together, and what their terms will be.

More news from the minefield as it breaks…

Dragonbride by Raani York

Dragonbride_cover_smaller

Today I’m pleased to be able to share news about the release of Dragonbride, a fantasy novel by author Rani York.

Synopsis:

Shalima, “Daughter of the Light”, was born under special circumstances. She was raised by her aunts instead of her mother because she needed to be prepared to fulfill the prophecies of the Old Scriptures, which told that she was the only Magician on Earth.

Her aunts carefully prepared her for her obligations and her sacred duty. She will have to get married to the Holy Golden Dragon, the King of the Dragons, a huge Earth Dragon with magical talents. She cannot believe that she is the “Chosen One”, who has to protect the Dragon Species, all of Nature and finally the Earth. But when she turned into a teenager it seemed that the Old Scriptures were right.

Not only does she have to fulfill her duty by getting married to the Dragon – she will also have to go on a deadly mission to save the world from an unspeakable evil. A mission there is very little hope her party will ever return from.

Here’s an except from the book to whet your appetites:

The mountains possessed a dark but seductive beauty, and they lay in wait for the ones who came through the Fire Hell. The powdered white peaks of the sparkling black mountain-world watched for them with longing.

The Diamond Mountains gave the illusion of being much closer than they really were, and many a pilgrim had been lured to his death by the promise of riches hidden on their slopes. These mountains were so named because of the rough gems strewn about the black volcanic soil. When the sun shone overhead the gems made the mountains sparkle and shimmer brightly, and at night they made the moonlit mountains glow with a soft silver light.

People, blinded by both their greed and the tantalizing glittering of the sunlit earth, imagined that there was immeasurable wealth lying there on the ground, just waiting to be picked. However, the mountains never betrayed the secrets they held. None who had ever walked those slopes could find the diamonds hidden within the black soil, for the mountains protected themselves.

Although healthy forest still grew in the foothills, the undergrowth became sparser just a few hundred feet up, and then the treeline ended. Where stunted trees would normally grow the forest just stopped, as if some unseen hand had cut it short. All that remained were dangerously sharp, dry rocks. Just below the snowline, the rocks disappeared, and the glittering black soil took their place.

Moreover, at the summit it seemed as if the Creator of All Things had dusted the peaks of the fissured mountain range with powdered sugar, for they were covered with a deceptively soft-looking, yet extremely sharp-edged eternal snow.

The mountains never betrayed their secrets…

And if a wanderer were to climb those peaks, going up to the Fire Hell and searching to quench his thirst at a splashing mountain spring, he would find no cool, refreshing water. Instead, these living mountains would seek to frighten him by shrouding the ground with a mysterious fog that made it impossible to see where he was putting his feet. Pilgrims sometimes drowned in the sulfurous pools of water hidden within the hellish rocks when the fog appeared, and if they left the main trails, they would know true fear, for they would be led down treacherous sidepaths that seemed to take them somewhere, yet actually led them nowhere but to their doom.

The mountains never betrayed their secrets…

Though many thought they would find the cool relief of the shadows by early evening, the ascent would continue for another three torturous days. During those three days, their throats would scream for water, and their eyes would tear up in the swirling sand. Blown up by the hot desert winds, the sand burned as it fell upon a traveler’s face and skin. Eventually their limbs would become heavy, and they would barely be able to move; thus, the wanderers would be forced to crawl on, farther and farther, until sheer luck eventually brought them to civilization… to people.

In a canyon between two hills below the mountain range there was a village. It had no official name, but the people living there called it Alpcateçu, which meant Oasis of the Mountains. Anyone who wanted to climb the mountains had to pass through the village. A few taverns and inns surrounded the village fountain, where a market was sometimes held.

Some houses and huts had been built in the wide hills and even at the edge of the forest… and in one such place, hidden within the woods, almost four hundred feet past the deepest thicket and connected to the village only by a sidepath lay the place in which I had been born.
