Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I'm generally in front of the computer by 9am., ready to start writing. I try to stick to a 2000 words-a-day minimum, which can take anywhere from 3 to 8 hours, just depending on how well my creativity is flowing that particular day.
Do you outline?
Because I write epic fantasy with plots that can span an entire series, I do need to know in advance where the story is going, at least to a certain degree. Generally when I begin a book I have a rough outline depicting the key scenes I need to hit on. Everything connecting those key scenes is done on the fly.

  • Memories of Murder on Feb. 11, 2012
    star star star star
    Very original idea! I would love to see this one day flushed out into a novella. Creepy and inventive.
  • Deer Lake: A Novel on March 06, 2012
    star star star star star
    Deer Lake is a well-written blend of mystery, humor, and horror. The characters are quirky but believable, the plot perfectly paced and never uninteresting. This is a flat-out fun read, and I look forward to more by this author.
  • Loki Laufeysson v. Odin Borsson on March 18, 2012
    star star star star
    If you enjoy Norse mythology and have a sense of humor, you will find this a very entertaining read.
  • Surviving Immortality on Nov. 14, 2012
    star star star star star
    Offering healthy doses of both humor and gore along the way, Surviving Immortality is, at its heart, a tale of one man coming to terms with his own humanity. Often thought-provoking, always entertaining, and rich with interesting characters, the story propels you along until its satisfying conclusion. Another great effort by Mr Farant.
