J-F. Dubeau, author of The Life Engineered, talks about writing, reading, and his upcoming novel, A God in the Shed.
Hi J-F! Welcome to Myths Mists & Musings. Rumor has it that you have a lot on your plate these days. Can you give the readers a rundown of what you’ve been up to in recent months?
I don’t know when this is going up, but at the time of answering the question I’m almost two weeks past the launch of my first book, The Life Engineered. That doesn’t mean the work is done though. My curre...
Today’s interview is with Kelsey Rae Barthel, author Beyond the Code, a fantasy novel currently funding on Inkshares.

the powerful Knight of the Iver Family, in her mission to take down the ambitious and

Hi André! Please tell us about your current project:
I am currently writing Lies and Deception. I would say it is a blend with The DaVinci Code and American Horror Story: Asylum. I will be putting it through editing near June. Right now focusing on finishing my crowdfunding campaign, then all my energy will be on finishing Lies and Deception to deliver the best possible book in it's genre.
Today we’re talking with author John Robin about his upcoming hit, Blood Dawn!
Hi John! Please tell us about your current and upcoming projects:
I just finished writing Blood Dawn, an epic fantasy about the long-lost daughter of a god-king who must restore light to a fallen empire. Right now it is with an editor and beta readers, and I’ll be putting it through rounds of revision until the summer, but my mind is already on the sequel, which I’d like to begin writing in August. It’s called A Thousan...
Today we’re talking with Tony Valdez, author of Dax Harrison.
An excerpt from Dax Harrison:

Logan chose the former, checking her rifle multiple times over and pacing in the cargo bay until she caught herself in the act. After that, she resigned herself to the cockpit, watching the maps on the main con...
No? Well let’s just say that my sinus infection reached critical mass at the same time that my creativity stores reached critical lows. Week 3 was a STRUGGLE, folks. Let’s take a look at the wagons and see which ones I fell off of and which I managed to stay on.
Word Count Wagon: Fell
Daily Writing Wagon: Stayed...mostly
Brain Yoga Wagon: Fell during Week 1 (did I fail to mention that? oops!)
Hi Bryon! Let's start things off by telling us about your current project:
Children of the Forest (CotF) is a multi-part epic, set in a world blending Science-Fiction and Fantasy themes.
The story was partly inspired by the works of Hayao Miyazaki (of Studio Ghibli fame) and the writings of Frank Herbert (Dune) and Ursula Le Guin (The Last Unicorn). The novel focuses on the impact of man on his environment, and the catastrophic consequences that are born of the earth’s misuse. Unlike many other...
Another great day in the chatroom. Tonight I tackled several scenes that the earlier chapters have been waiting on, which means that I’ll be able to polish up another round of chapters soon and give them the ever elusive “done” stamp. I also discovered some new subplots for the middle of the book, which is great because that’s where the story is the most sparse right now. All in all, a really productive night!
Word Count-wise, things are starting to get into a groove and it’s looking like I...
