Because I am creating the world of Odealeous I have many stories to tell. I want all my stories to be in this fantasy world. I have so many stories in my head already once I thought about the idea of Odealeous that writers block just stopped. If you have writers block is probably because you need to find more inspiration.

A.J. Martinez World building. Its like I am creating my own movie and then seeing your book in paperback it gives you a real sense of accomplishment.
