Do you want a taste…of A Raven’s Revenge?

Interview with Author R. J. Davies Mornix

BOOK BLURB:

A 26-year-old Dice Maddox living in Toronto, Ontario struggles with her failing love life and a career she doesn’t love deciding to get back into a business she was once good at. Ryan Winters her first client was a confirmed bachelor until he had a small car accident, a woman named Lily Winters claims to have been married to him for 6 months. Digging deeper into Lily Winters, Dice soon discovers that she isn’t who she says she is but wait what is she? A demon? An alien? Will Dice Maddox first case back be her last?

1. Why did you decide on your genre?

I have always had a passion for science fiction from a young age, something about exploring other worlds, adventures and galactic wars excite me. In my teens I watched a lot of Detective shows as well.  Maddox Files Series is a blend of Private Investigation/Science Fiction.

2. Do you plan or are you a by the seat or your pants writer?

(laughs) it’s a combination of both. Books 1-4 no planning what so ever. Book 5 – 7  I have outlined but book five is taking on a life of its own. It’s always good to have a plan. My other two series (two books each) I didn’t plot them either.

3. Your characters are gutsy and go through quite an adventure. How did you come up with them and the plot?

I love strong characters more importantly I love real characters like real people. Because I really feel we all have that inner strength that we can tap into when we need it. For Dice Maddox I knew I wanted someone young in their twenties who was stronger than she thinks, a risk taker, a go getter who likes to question everything. My mother thought she was a younger version of me and there are some parts me in there sure but make no mistake I think Dice Maddox is her own person.

4. What’s your favourite way to write? In silence, with music, in a coffee shop?

I am married with children, so there are times when I am sitting in the living room with everyone else around me doing their own thing. When I zone into my books it’s like being transported to that realm and it’s just me in my characters’ mind and body living the experience. So I have my moments, where I am alone and it’s quiet, I like it … other times when I have music playing and yes I have sat in a coffee shops with my note book and pen jotting down scenes and paragraphs of story.

5. How long was the process and did you encounter any stumbling blocks?

Book 1, 2, 3, 4 all were written under 30 days. Book one was written in 22 days. Book Five I have only spent 4 days on it so far and plan on getting back to it this week. Sometimes I will come to a spot where Dice has too many options, I will take five minutes quiet my mind and before that five minutes is up I’ve plotted the next 3-4 chapters in my head, and then I am back at writing. I have never had writer’s block. However with that being said the first book I have ever written Quin’s Quest took me almost 20 years to write because I fell into the trap of writing/editing/rewriting the first draft. After hearing Stephen King say the first draft is crap and it’s you telling yourself the story  … I was done the book in 23 days.

A Raven’s Revenge Update

So, here I am starting from scratch all over again. One of my writer heroes is Stephen King. I believe he only wrote on series, The Gunslinger series, and I am beginning to see why. It’s freaking hard. Plus, I wonder how I can write this story? Is it just a two book ‘series’, or is it longer? Frick.

Planning is not my forte. I usually write by the seat of my pants and to have to plot things blows my mind. I’m currently creating a world that my characters are exploring, however, I am not sure where to put them. The setting has kind of written itself, but now I have to figure out where each character will be at what time. Yes, things are a little complicated this time.

At this point a regular person would question themselves, why do this? Oh, because I love it. Yes, I really do. Let’s cut a vein and bleed; this story isn’t going to write itself.

 

 

Title Announcement + Birthday offer

I mentioned the other week that I have decided on the title for the sequel to A Raven’s Touch.

The next book will be called……

DRUM ROLL PLEASE...

A Raven’s Revenge

What do you think? 

I’m pretty psyched about this title. For ARR I’m reading notes about Hell and what the circles look like. Needless to say the sequel is going to be a heavy one. Justice, Moira, Tom and Darien are going to have to be strong in the face of evil. I’m not sure how far I will push them, but I do know a few of you are probably going to hate me a little. Things are going to get freaky that’s for sure.

Now here’s a question. I don’t know if I want to stretch things out to three books, and I think I can wrap up everything nicely into the sequel. Does that even make for a series if there’s only two books? 

I’d LOVE to know more about you and what kind of swag you enjoy. PLUS, I want to give you a present. See what it is in my survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VM3KZF9
