Nifty New Guest Blog Post / Comments on King

Check out my guest blog post on Midnyte Reader! Here, I talk about the way I come up with plot and character. At this point I am the third entry down, so you will have to scroll a bit.

My novel in progress – ‘Dead Red’ is about to cross page 100 at 31,000 words. My end goal is 90,000 words minimum, and I would project finishing the rough draft by Christmas. I feel that will be good timing, because my third (and best) novel titled ‘Phantom Effect’ will come out February 2016 through Night Shade Books.

I just read ‘Joyland’ by Stephen King, and I enjoyed it. King has always had the ability to find a character’s center quickly and effectively, but with this one it was clear how effortlessly and selflessly he transfers details of story and movement. I personally get quite caught up in descriptions when I am writing, often making them “artistic” and “showy.” King somehow puts you in a summer carnival and with subtlety and pinpoint accuracy, involves you there without making you stop and say “what brilliant descriptions.”

King is the prodigy of our time. I consider myself quite lucky to have his material to enjoy and learn from.
