Interview with Dylan Saccoccio

What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. The whole point of the Tale of Onora series is to de-obfuscate the knowledge of the Self and show you that we are all connected through the unified field of energy that manifests all things in this universe. Without you there is no me. I already know the story. There would be no need to share it if there were not others that were in grave danger for not knowing what is happening on Earth.
What are you working on next?
Writing: The Tale of Onora: To Seek the Eye of God

Acting: I just accepted an offer for a role in a feature film that will be shooting later in 2015.
Who are your favorite authors?
I couldn't pick. It changes too much, but mainly because I'm good at picking out the good that each author does individually, despite parts of their work that are not suited to my tastes.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
We take for granted that we are in completely unique bodies that have unlimited potential, scientifically (epigenetically) speaking. The problem is that the Knowledge of our origins, and the way the governing dynamics of the universe work in relation to our behavior, is perhaps the most obfuscated knowledge there is. Too many people have been duped into believing in solipsism, moral relativism, and the false notions that you are an animal, that you have no power over the way things work here so you should just go with the flow and it's a dog-eat-dog world, survival of the fittest. Most have been duped into becoming unconscious creators that do not take responsibility for their thoughts, emotions, and actions, and in doing so have been duped into believing that it is possible for one to abdicate his/her responsibility, something that can never be done. My service to the Truth is what motivates me to get out of bed each day, regardless of what my perception of the Truth is. As long as the human condition remains in slavery, people like me will be made to help others realize that in supporting and condoning the legitimacy of "Authority" and Government (man's law), they have actually been immorally supporting and condoning the legitimacy of Slavery.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Usually researching or playing music.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Usually through word of mouth. Sometimes I'll buy a book based on randomly searching the internet for genres that I like.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. It's called "Loden's Wind." It will probably be incorporated into ToO at some point.
What is your writing process?
I do as much preparation as I can, and then when I write each scene, I completely free myself from all expectations and live in the moment. This allows things to happen that I was unprepared for, which then can have a greater chance of surprising the reader and taking the story into unexpected places where different events blossom from.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes. It was magical. It enabled my imagination to take me to places that still give me nostalgia when I think of them. I used to read all the time when I was a child. Sometimes I wonder if stories are in fact keys to unlocking your DNA and awakening you to your ancient past.
How do you approach cover design?
I'm a fantasy art junkie, so not only do I know what I want, but I usually have tons of concept art to back me up. I've been fortunate enough to have some of my favorite artists agree to work with me, and once I give them my concepts, I then give them complete creative control to do what they do best and flourish in a way that the work is fulfilling to them, and as you can see, their results come out as masterpieces.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
"The End of All Evil" by Jeremy Locke
"The Kybalion" by The Three Initiates
"The Politics of Obedience" by Etienne de La Boetie
"The Fourth Turning" by William Strauss and Neil Howe
"177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class" by Steve Siebold

The list goes on and on, but these books were picked specifically for the Knowledge within them that will benefit you.
