Thanks so much to the folks over at Sci-Fi Saturday night for having me on their show. I had a ton of fun chatting with them about this week’s Sci-fi news, as well as my recent Textnovel win. Anyone who missed the interview can catch it here: http://www.scifisaturdaynight.com/?p=2102

People always ask me how I come up with ideas for books, or stories. Most of the time I don’t have a good answer for them. I have written two books that were each based on dreams that I had, but that doesn’t happen very often. I also have a book that is based on a song. I listened to the song over and over and over again, and wrote the book that I saw when I listened to the song.
One thing I don’t have when I start a book is an outline. I usually have an idea for what is going to happen in the story, a basic thought that A will happen, which will push the story towards B, and then everything will end up with C. After that I just let the characters take over, but more on that later. . .
