I'm working with artist Ben Juniu to create a series of monster portraits for my upcoming LitRPG trilogy. The idea is to have these portraits inserted within the books, so that as you encounter these monsters in the tale you are also treated to a stunning depiction of them. I love what Ben's done with this first monster, and can't wait to share more images as Ben sends them my way.
Author Devyn Jayse asked if I'd be willing to answer a half dozen questions. I said sure, and my answers are up on her blog.
- What advice would you give to aspiring writers?
- What were some challenges you faced when you published and how did you overcome them?
- What are your favorite fantasy tropes? Which ones do you wish would die?
