How to Stop Wildfire FIFTH Anniversary

How to Stop Wildfire FIFTH Anniversary

Has it really been five years? It really has been. I can’t fathom it and yet at the same time, now, at the near end of this major arc with Emerald Haze, the years seem far too apt. It has been a long while since I first scrappily put out How to Stop Wildfire. That was a major accomplishment for myself. It was so small in a way, and yet, it was massive. It was the foundation of all that...

How to Stop Wildfire Fourth Anniversary

How to Stop Wildfire Fourth Anniversary

Time just flies by. Four years have gone by since I released How to Stop Wildfire. It was rocky and wild at first. I knew so little and then learned so much. Four years of writing and change. At the time of this writing, I have released six other books since then. I’m working on making it seven. Working on finishing out this set of four so in four years I’ve written eight books total. This process has made me...

Binding My Own Book (How to Stop Wildfire)

Binding My Own Book (How to Stop Wildfire)

In my attempt to further own my work, I went down the path to try to figure out how to make custom copies of my books. For the the e-copy, I'm now using iBooks author, which is an overall great success. I been able to attach images, create glossaries, and add floating footnotes. All that has been making the book more personal. Now that's just the electronic version. For the hard copy version, things got a little bit more interesting....

King Fla'neiel's Journey

King Fla'neiel's Journey

I made another little movie on How to Stop Wildfire. This time, it has music custom made and inspired by the book! It was made by Josh B. It is a wonderful track. The theme of the video is King Fla'neiel's journey. Nothing too spoiler-y, just a good beginning overview. It was a bit hard to make, but I did it. Learned a lot of new techniques. Did some crappy drawings just for it. Enjoy!

HTSW Point of View Analysis

HTSW Point of View Analysis

How to Stop Wildfire and the subsequent books are based on a non-omniscient third-person point of view. Certain characters get to color the narration. And some, the titular 'Trinity and the One,' have an accessible thought process. A stream of consciousness. I like to think of the POV as like a microphone that the Trinity and the One characters seize from each other. That is why POV can change within a page. It is a fluid prospect. But for the...
