It’s been quiet on my blog, but I’ve been busy chatting it up on other blogs.

So for anyone that has missed my current blog-storm, you can find them here.

At Beauty in Ruins, you can read about how I came up with some of the unique monsters I used for Dämoren, Hounacier, and the Screamers in Ibenus. I also confess me deep fear of jellyfish.

At The Quillery, I discuss the different genre styles I use between each Valducan novel in order to keep the series fresh.

I paid a visit to RisingShadow where I explained how I try to avoid the dreaded Aquaman Trope and Eigen Plots. 

Finally, I’m at author Timothy C. Ward‘s site discussing the different layers in storytelling and how summing up a novel’s plot, especially one in an ongoing series, is pretty difficult to pull off in only 1-2 sentences.

I have several more guest blogs on the way, including a few podcast interviews, so I’ll post those up once they go live. In the meantime, I hope everyone enjoys my rambling thoughts and enjoys Ibenus.
