Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
Late 2011 was when ideas for books first started popping up in my head and by early 2012 I began writing what was later to become The Broken Everything. Prior to that I don't remember writing anything else, short of some school assignments.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is also my first. It is a fantasy novel I began writing in early 2012, returning to it on and off and editing more so than writing. The finished result is about 75 000 words but there are over a 100 000 words of deleted material. It worked actually as a writing exercise, and by the time I was done with the first and second drafts I decided to start from scratch and the end result is the published work. What survived from infancy is only a few character names and the basic ideas. The ending, too.

I think of TBE as mostly practice. I know that's not very good incentive for anyone to read it, but hey, it's free.
