Binding My Own Book (Of Fractured Edges)

Binding My Own Book (Of Fractured Edges)

Of Fractured Edges...the last of the first four books. The finale. The start of more. Blah, blah, blah, this is about the physical copy. Each of the previous three I've made custom hand-bound copies for, so Of Fractured Edges was next. OFE's artwork came from a photo I took of tree bark, complete with moss and everything. Then I ran the image through a bunch of color filters to give it that intense black/green hue. All that makes the cover...

The Corruption of Dark Print Cover

The Corruption of Dark Print Cover

The four books following HTSW - OFE are related to the Primordial Essences as the first four were on the primary elements. They match like this if it wasn't obvious already: Expansion of Expression - Expansion (Scorpion) The Madness of Light - Order/Light (White Spider) The Corruption of Dark - Chaos/Dark (Black Spider) Containment Collapse - Containment (Clam) The covers so far reflect that... Expansion Expression Cover TMOL Cover TCOD Cover Each cover show cases a stylized essence. The print...

The Madness of Light Afterword (+ Recording!)

The Madness of Light Afterword (+ Recording!)

This afterword delves more into the plot and character process of the story than anything else. It's how process and prose intermingle.

Binding My Own Book (Threads that Bind the Tempest)

Binding My Own Book (Threads that Bind the Tempest)

Almost a year ago I started on the process of binding my own books. In 2017, I did How to Stop Wildfire and Harmonic Waves. Due to a variety of reasons, I didn't do any others last year. I waited until 2018. Wanting to get Threads that Bind the Tempest done before its anniversary, I went ahead and did it. Threads that Bind the Tempest was the first and only cover where the art was wholly digital. It was a...

The Madness of Light: Choices and Process

The Madness of Light: Choices and Process

I made a video of me talking about my writing! I'm so proud of myself. It's about The Madness of Light, my writing process through it, and my general feelings. It's a long video, but I thought it was interesting talking it through. Thanks.

Expansion Expression Foreword (+ Recording!)

Expansion Expression Foreword (+ Recording!)

And now I'm currently all caught up with forewords/afterwords. Here's the foreword/preface for Expansion Expression, which sort of kicks off the vibe for the novel and the series moving forward. It's definitely lighter than the other ones. As always, I enjoyed writing and recording it.

Of Fractured Edges Afterword (+ Recording!)

Of Fractured Edges Afterword (+ Recording!)

The last of the first four afterwords/forewords—the one for Of Fractured Edges. This...this one might be the most intense of them, emotionally. Longest as well for sure. Most spoilerific too, so beware.

Threads that Bind the Tempest Afterword/Explanation (+ Recording!)

Threads that Bind the Tempest Afterword/Explanation (+ Recording!)

Here we are again. This time with the afterword-thing for Threads that Bind the Tempest. This is probably the most disjointed one of the lot, but it makes sense given what Threads that Bind the Tempest is. I could have put this before or after the book, but I put it after. I don't know. It made sense there. Of course, I recorded myself reading it.

Binding My Own Book (Harmonic Waves)

Binding My Own Book (Harmonic Waves)

When I made my own copy of How to Stop Wildfire about two months ago, I knew I was going to make copies for the rest of the series. Starting with the next book, of course—Harmonic Waves. The cover used for the print/e-copy originally was a painted piece of paper that was supposed to look water-y. I was thinking of doing paints again for the cover for the self-bound book, but I wasn't feeling it. Then the idea came to...

Harmonic Waves Retrospection (+ Recording!)

Harmonic Waves Retrospection (+ Recording!)

Here I am again with the recordings! This is the second of my additions to the novels. How to Stop Wildfire it felt natural to have a preface to explain the journey to it and explain it. With Harmonic Waves, my thoughts lingered on the content and what it meant rather than the journey so I chose to do a retrospection that is at the end of the novel. There are some spoilers within which is all the more reason...
