Interview with JM Williamson

What do you read for pleasure?
Fantasy.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I don't have one. I prefer a print copy. There's nothing like holding the book and turning the pages.
What do your fans mean to you?
They're a large part of why any author writes. Their support makes it easier to continue writing. Hopefully, they find enjoyment and an escape from every-day life in my works.
When did you first start writing?
In 5th grade.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Telling a story with minimal restrictions.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It was what eventually became Wardens of Light and Shadow, although it was hardly recognizable as such.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I did not like the traditional routes. I felt that it was restrictive, and that authors, in general, were seeing very little in the way of returns for their hard work.
What are you working on next?
The second installment in the Dracus Saga. It's currently untitled, but I'm making excellent progress.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The continuation of events in Wardens of Light and Shadow. It will answer questions like what does the winter hold for House Merandith and Suldamik? What happened to Amroth, Kara, and Emberscar? The book will also give more insight into the Wardens' past, as well as the goal(s) of the Wardens of Shadow.
When is your next book due out?
If all goes according to plan, sometime next year. I don't have a set date yet, but I will let everyone know when I do.
