I'm still getting questions (understandably) about the publication of Vol 6. With the house move and everything, I admit that not a lot of book got written, and the length of time that passed has left me feeling afraid of the big, scary, white page. Maybe confidence issues are a thing with writers... I don't know. Page fright? I think I just need some encouragement... or a kick up the backside.... Read more of this blog post »

“What are we if we are not products of our history? History is not in our past but forms us in the present. And how histories are written or interpreted depends on what we do today.”
H.O. Charles, City of Blaze

“I often think publishing a book is like doing a poo. Once it's ready for the world, you have to relinquish that control and let nature take its course. A few will be impressed by your creation, others will be disgusted. Plus, no one will enjoy your success and achievement in producing it as much as you did.”
H.O. Charles

“Silar's problem is something I, as an author, am constantly faced with. I have to predict the actions of my characters as they enter different situations. But there's always that element of chaos when they lose their sanity or when the less-probable occurs, which works against whatever fate I have in store for them. Just to complicate things further, it's almost inexcusable for an author to have characters acting... um... out of character in a book unless it's warranted by some other event. Therefore, as reasonable readers and authors, we all have our own ideas of deterministic behaviour and frequently balk at actions/decisions that seem odd.”
H.O. Charles

message 1: by H.O.

H.O. Charles I have several spare copies (paperback) of Nation of Blaze and one or two of City of Blaze to give away. These are proof books with slight errors (e.g. the odd typo, old cover, or the cover printing has slipped). They're currently taking up space in my house and I have no need of them! If anyone's interested in a copy, please message me!
