YW (me): So, first – a bit of an introduction to yourself, if you will.
YW: You’ve got two series out – the Purelights and the Star Guild. One is decidedly fantasy, almost a Narnia + the Dark is Rising thing, and the other is completely different – a space opera in a world that’s rooted in the Panspermia hypothesis. And all the books in these two are very well reviewed.
Let’s talk about these two worlds. How did they come about? The books, the characters – and given that you oscillate between fantasy and sci-fi genres, how much time and effort did it take you to produce this work?
YW: What made you go indie?
YW: From an indie author perspective – given the fact that we’re both in the 20booksto50k group – I couldn’t help noticing that you were really ticking all the boxes. Great covers, the first book of each series free, a bunch of reviews mentioned in the description – how has this turned out in terms of sales? What were the biggest challenges and the greatest victories in the process?
Did anything in your background set you up for a running start, or did you have to learn on the way?
Thanks for reading! I’d like to give a shout out to Brandon for taking the time to answer all of these questions. You can find him on Goodread here: to check out his work, start with book one of the Star Guild Saga here or get the PureLights box set here.
