The Night Before Generic Holiday

I know I can’t be the only one tired of overlapping holidays produced by overactive marketing departments, so to interject a little humor into this madness, I’ve tweaked the popular old Night Before Christmas just a little bit.  So below I now present my effort at “the Night Before Generic Holiday”…   ‘Twas the night …

Who Says What

Certain characters will speak in certain ways, say certain types of things; that’s universal for any good book. What I thought I’d do here is go a little bit through my thought processes of how I decide who says what types of lines. Does Eldar say it? Sabu? Mauklo? Consider this little flow chart that …

Maldene On The Market

Well, so I’m going to be taking a crack at this Marketing thing. Of course, that’s bit like asking a monk advice for picking up girls; he might know in theory but his application is going to really bite wind. I mean, I’m the guy that in job interviews of many years past actually volunteered …

Looks Like I Need a Book Trailer

Lately I’ve been trying to get more organized in coming up with a gameplan for more properly marketing Maldene, and I’ve naturally concluded that it comes down to the first step being a good book trailer.

What Makes Maldene Different

This is a question I have been asked on occasion, and certainly one you want an answer for if you’re to market a novel, but it is to me the single hardest question to answer. Why, you ask? Because there is no single thing that makes Maldene different. It is a revolution in fantasy, a …

I’ve Been Skyped

Well, just yesterday I was invited to speak to a classroom full of creative writing students in Panama via Skype. The video didn’t work (could have been either my older version of Skype or the fact that it was Panama) but the audio was good, and language wasn’t a problem. Anyway, it was the first …

Maldene Mini-Review: Starcrossed TV series

Just a word about that new TV series, Starcrossed, which is basically Alien Nation with Teen angst. Of course, the problem is that none of these teens are being played by anyone even close to being a teen. When the one college-age-looking girl said, “High School, we’re finally here”, I looked her up on IMDB. …
