What is your writing process?
I'm generally in front of the computer by 9am., ready to start writing. I try to stick to a 2000 words-a-day minimum, which can take anywhere from 3 to 8 hours, just depending on how well my creativity is flowing that particular day.
Do you outline?
Because I write epic fantasy with plots that can span an entire series, I do need to know in advance where the story is going, at least to a certain degree. Generally when I begin a book I have a rough outline depicting the key scenes I need to hit on. Everything connecting those key scenes is done on the fly.

The sudden return of one of these Gods brings hope,and gives name to the true force threatening their world. Chosen by his returned God, Prince Kaymin Numont begins a quest to locate and free the others before Trivallyn itself is destroyed.
Deer Lake is a well-written blend of mystery, humor, and horror. The characters are quirky but believable, the plot perfectly paced and never uninteresting.
This is a flat-out fun read, and I look forward to more by this author.
Offering healthy doses of both humor and gore along the way, Surviving Immortality is, at its heart, a tale of one man coming to terms with his own humanity.
Often thought-provoking, always entertaining, and rich with interesting characters, the story propels you along until its satisfying conclusion.
Another great effort by Mr Farant.
