Now, when I set aside time to write, I use it even if I absolutely don't feel like writing. Sometimes I'm only able to get down the who, what, where, etc., but it drives the story forward. The details can be added later. The important part is getting the story out.(less)

When you are writing, you need to let it all hang out...like a drunk. Don't worry about misspellings or missing words. Vomit the nonsense in your head onto the page unfiltered and unadulterated. Just get the story out. Write drunk.

Once you've gotten all that nonsense out of your head and onto the page, take another look at it. It probably isn't perfect. It might not even be legible. That's okay. That is what editing is for. Make sure you're sober for this part. This is where you take the raw emotions you spit onto the page and craft them into something beautiful and glorious someone will want to read.(less)

Picture Hi Friends!

So, I sponsored a giveaway. It's a sweet deal, $500 Amazon shopping spree. Awesome, right? Right. You can enter that here: http://ow.ly/HBll50GG3sO. I did, and I hope I win. Well, I suppose I hope you win more.

In any event, I'm hoping to gain a bit of exposure for Kill the Gods, the third book in the Lake of Dragons series. To that end, I'm running a sweet deal on the Kindle version. I Read more of this blog post »

E. Mettille liked an answer from Dario Ciriello:
Dario Ciriello
As is often the case, the core story and characters for Black Easter were the result of a collision of ideas.

I'd wanted for some time to write a book about classic, old-school black magic -- the nasty ritual kind, with demons and sacrifices. There's See Dario’s answer.
