Welcome to our blog, The Author’s Blade!
I say “our” because not only is this my blog, it’s yours as well! My blogging mentor, Jeff Goins, said that without an audience, you’re just talking to an empty stage. I don’t want to do that. It is my intention to be very interactive with any comments or questions.
But who am I, you may be wondering?
Hello! My name is Robert and I am a father of 3, an owner of 2, and a husband of 1. I currently live in Somerset, KY but I grew up in San Diego, CA. I’m also the author of the fantasy novel Winter’s Bite, book 1 of the Child of Lies series. I’ve been a fan of fantasy since the early 1980s, and a fan of reading for just as long. Back in 2013 I asked myself, “what better use of my time than to couple the two together and write my own fantasy stories?” Thus, the concept of the Child of Lies series was born in a NaNoWriMo deivery room.
You can benefit from my experiences if you:
– Know the story you want to tell, but don’t know how to get started.
– Are in the process of writing a novel but are hitting some unexpected bumps.
– Have any number of books out and just want a fresh perspective to spur you on to greater success.
– Have a pulse. Okay, this last one is spoken tongue-in-cheek, but I will strive to make each post entertaining as well as informative and easy to follow. Perhaps it will entertain you, even if you don’t want to be a writer.
