My thoughts on “tomorrow” (aka why I write dytopias)

I am huge fan of the dystopian genre and love to spend a lot of time thinking about societal extremes. The themes in daynight, many of which are very dark, are all designed to have readers think about parallels to our own society and where we need to draw lines. The dystopia category is pretty broad these days. By definition a dystopian world must have  deprivation, oppression, or terror. I prefer dystopias that explore interesting societal and moral dilemmas to catastrophic conditions/survival stories. The very best dystopias most often have a well formed government enforcing extremes. I’m fascinated by these …

What Tomorrow May Bring Boxed Set Released

Tomorrow becomes today. What will it bring? Our potential for good is matched by that of destruction. At any moment, change can fall on the world, people fight and die, and our comfortable lives can be lost to corrupt leaders. These are circumstances we can’t imagine, but places like this exist in the world today. What if tomorrow brings that grave reality to us, and we wake to find our lives in flux, poverty and confusion? Perhaps humanity’s insatiable appetites drive us to the brink of survival where sanity is redefined and life, as we know it, changes forever. Tomorrow, …

Check out her blog and her post on her writing process!  What am I working on?  I’m working on book #3 of the daynight series, generate. It’s not going as fast as I might like as our family is in the process of buying a house, trying to sell our current house, and planning for remodel at the new house—all of which adds up to one giant time sink. Add that to the fact that the daynight series is extremely complex with dozens of characters and subplots that all …

Measuring success as a writer

As it has been a year since I published daynight and 2013 is coming to a close, I have been thinking a lot about what constitutes “success” in the publishing industry, whether I have achieved it, and if it matters. “Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.” —Winston Churchill It won’t do any good for me to compare my success to those who have “won the publishing lottery” any more than it will be to feel overly confident about the success I have had. Yet, I all too often compare myself …
