R.J.S. Orme

Biography

I was born in Fort Collins Colorado on January 26th, 1987.
I currently work full time as a hotel employee, and have always had talent for writing.
I might be an amateur, but I'm going to try to work hard!

Remember, a review always helps a hundred more ways then some! I appreciate your feedback!

I've always been fascinated with why cultures are what they are, but more so based off what sort of cultures could arise from a specific set of circumstances. This is what led me to fiction. After all if I think it's more fun to explore other worlds in my mind then why would I stop myself?

My books require editing. Current status will be here below and I will update it as it comes along.

Book One: Fully edited and updated.
Book Two: Editing
Book Three Standby

Book Art: In the works

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Putting aside anything I would have read as a small child, I do recall in Junior High that when I picked up "Homeland" by R.A. Salvatore in his dark elf series. When I read that I suddenly got excited. There was a character I felt embodied a hero without standards of living that told him to be a good guy. I always enjoyed characters who faced struggles that weren't very mundane. Imagine overcoming your entire society at one point, or as Drizzt did, running away from it and being chased.

It got me thinking, what other heroes are out there that didn't come from normal circumstances? Sure, it's easy to say a tragedy will spur someone head in their destiny. But it's the characters that choose what they do without incident you realize you like much, much more.
How do you approach cover design?
Honestly? I had to ramshackle together a handful of well known symbols to come together with the symbol of the Cie series. Maybe one day when I actually have any money to spend I'll be able to hire someone competent to draw my covers. Probably near the Outsider series! I've never been incapable of creating art in some forms, but that's not where my talents lie.
