Author Interview – Garry Rogers

Who designed the cover? Anya Kelleye.

Why did you choose to write this particular book? After the theme took shape and the backstory began to unfold, I decided that I wanted to write an adventure with a heroic but humble protagonist.  At first, I concentrated on the nature of the protagonist.  From the backstory, I knew what the characters’ abilities would be, but it took some thought to sculpt the personality.  Every book on personality, temperament, and character traits has useful ideas; the one I liked best was Nancy Kress’ “Dynamic Characters.”

What was the hardest part about writing this book? For me it is always the characters.

Did you learn anything from writing this book and what was it? I learned so many things that all I can say is that students of creative writing are lucky that they have so many well-written textbooks to read.

How do you promote this book? I am using social media, bookstore sales, and book signings.

Will you write others in this same genre? Yes.  The next one is off to a good start.

When an armed Danog patrol crosses the border into Wycliff District, the Wycliff Council sends a young Tsaeb warrior named Corr Syl to investigate and recommend a response. Corr soon learns that spies have infiltrated his district, and already many lives are at risk. He catches a glimpse of something truly evil, and with no time to spare, must choose between a safe response that might fail, and a sure response that might start a global war.
