I had my first radio interview today at one of the local radio stations, CKWR – FM 98.5. I want to thank my host, John Maciel for inviting me to his show to talk about my recently published book, “The Alkahest.” Thanks to Harry Rauser as well for the programing.
We talked about my steps into a writing career, the books I’ve written and published, and touched on the future of my writing. If you’re interested, the interview will be available to hear on the “About Author” section under “Interviews.”
Quote: “Writing is the supreme solace.” W. Somerset Maugham
Today was a special day for me – my fantasy novel, “The Alkahest” was published!
This book has been a long time in the making – many years in fact and to finally have it published is a dream come true. The characters are dear to my heart, and it’s a privilege for me to share their story with you. The epic fantasy was initially written as one long story, which I have broken down into numerous books. The Alkahest is the first of the Thoughtmover series, starting the characters off on their extraordinary journey.
My web-designer and I worked many long hours on designing the map of where the story takes place – The Land of Kaldanien. It went through several iterations over a period of a year until we were satisfied with the end product. Likewise with the cover, which also went through numerous iterations.
A few people were instrumental in helping me to ready my book for publication. I would like to thank them for their help.
My web-designer, Alex for his great work and long hours on the website, book cover, and map.
Pat LuBruto, my New York editor for his outstanding editorial skills and helping me to become a better writer and for allowing me to keep my own writing voice throughout the process.
My characters who inspired and guided me down this enjoyable and rewarding path of writing.
I’m currently working on book two of the Thoughtmover series that continues my characters’ epic journey, which I look forward to sharing with you in 2014.
