What is your writing process?
Generally I would have a vision for the story which is how you get the characters, background and motives. And the deeper the story gets the more I need key word triggers that I have to include - the character, the place and what they're doing. But not too much - with the Chase series it just unravelled after 10 pages (where I assumed it would end) and still going after 80 pages. I dreamed of the fourth installment just the other night. Sometimes I use illustrations of the characters to make them clearer in the readers mind but visuals help a lot.
How do you approach cover design?
That is a monster question. Marketing that baby needs so much thought. Partially why it took me 5 months to come up with the right idea. I gave a rough outline to my graphic designer and we worked on it for about a month or so. If you're not in love with it, then something is not right. And I had a major oh wow moment when I saw all three drafts before we got to the final one.
In his quest to bring his cousin back from the edge of the planet, Emery finds his whole world starts to change. The Series follows his journey across continents, cultures and an epic love life to answer the question: will he forgive his cousin by the end?
A plot twist comes with a bump to a rich family and the surfing of high stakes. But Emery knows he has nothing to lose.
A man wakes up to find his cousin has left home. Now he has to get her back from across the world: Will he make it back in time? One thing is for sure, the chase will change his life.
