Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
Colonies of Kobol ... My first published work was the Lords of Kobol trilogy, a prequel to the popular Battlestar Galactica TV series, fleshing out the mythology and past of that universe. Obviously, because I have no desire to run afoul of corporate attorneys, they were posted for free, but it was my hope that people who liked them might sample my other work (which was posted later).

The first three books were well received and a prequel to them followed in 2015. Constantly, however, people asked if I would do more in that universe and write about the history of the worlds from the series. For years, I kept the many colonies in mind and thought about what their histories might be as I drove, walked, took showers, etc. I finally started typing in 2017 and now, five years and 2,200+ pages later, the three volumes are finished.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I'm sure the trite and trope answer is "the act of creation," but I will instead say the act of coalescence.

I say "coalescence" because that's what writing feels like to me. If I'm planning to write a story, I think about the story, the characters, the plot, etc., for many months beforehand. I may have crafted the entire progression of a story in my head by the time I sit down and create the Word file. But then, once my cursor is on the move, I have to condense those thoughts into words and ensure that those words convey the ideas I intended. And that's not the end of it.

As I type, something surprising happens. The story and ideas I had crafted begin to change. Sometimes it's because I realize a problem as I'm typing and I have to correct it, but more often than not, the act of writing will give me new ideas and the tale can take a path I wasn't anticipating. That's the stuff I love. The coalescing of my ideas, my words, and the circumstances of my writing into the product.
