Stories to change your world

Blog posts come sporadically, mainly when I need to write something other than books

Blog posts are supposed to come weekly or more, but there are other things on my mind than writing posts.
I am deeply engaged in editing or writing the next book, so as much as I would love to add more content here, it takes my time away from contributing to the next New York Times bestseller.

Amanda and I spend too much time in the chair already, but all we want to do is build another world with rich characters you’re going to love to hate, or hate to love.

What is Burn the Sky?

Here is how our book went from an idea and became a realisation over two books. Before I get into what Burn the Sky is, let me point out what it’s not. The start fits right into the point of view of a seven-year-old girl, but this doesn’t mean we aimed the story toward the…

Married with characterisation

By Amanda Breeze “What? You write with your husband? Together? How does that even work?“ Not surprising, this is a common reaction when we say we write as a husband and wife author team.

When the story starts/continues…

Some authors can bang out books in just a few weeks, while others take years to perfect that masterpiece, and others who spend so long world-building, they only release a few books in a lifetime. J.R.R. Tolkien is one author I’m thinking of when I say this, but that, by far, is not poking fun…
