  1. it’s amazing how fast Sarah has become well known and well thought of in the circle of blogs I read. I’m a big Baen fan and not all that long ago she was just another name on the sidebar and one day a link to something somewhere sent me to According… I think I related to it from a first reader perspective or something.
    There I commented on it, then went back say a day later and there are two other folks I know commenting (one with some involvement at Baen, who I also did some first reading for, and the other just a long time net acquaintance, artist, and independent author).
    Soon I’m seeing Insty linking to her books, then her blogs, then she goes viral … especially when she let her political side shine through.

    Sounds like you write a lot like the long time acquaintance I have. He says the characters come alive in his head and often pester him to write out their story. They write themselves and he just relates them to others. Sarah too jokes about the voices in her head. Characters are residents of the mind.

    Me? I gotta wait for others to write those folks out. I’m not creative in that way. It is also fun to get to know more about certain authors and see where some of those characters come from, whether from reality(like reading Travis Taylor and then seeing episodes of Rocket City Rednecks. His Brother-in-law and Rog are in most of the books somewhere and somehow) or from “thin air”.

  2. Keep it up
    The world needs more Fantasy novelists and you seem to know how to string sentences together in readable ways. Hope you strike gold with it.
    The one time I tried to write a book I got stuck in the editing process too soon. As someone whose “great American novel” is still unfinished, its silly for me to give advice. However I strongly suggest you just sit down and crank it out and edit later. Otherwise you will get stuck in the minutia of the process and not focus on the content.
    Good luck!

  3. Good luck on your book! It sounds like the right opening–running for your life from an unknown danger. Keep going. November is NaNo month.

  13. That is so exciting. I wish you the best of luck. Writing a book is HARD, and I applaud anyone — especially a gifted writer like you — who manages to get his imaginative ideas written down.

  14. Send Sarah my way. I’m in serious need of a muse…
