The hardest and why? Jeckran was the easiest to write because his ways of thinking and speaking are the closest to my own.

Ask it and answer it! Q: Are there any enormous trolls sitting in tiny armchairs and drinking out of tiny teacups in your book? A: Yes. Yes there are.
How very charming. About C. Waggoner C. Waggoner is at work on her next novel. Twitter CMWaggoner2.
Waggoner , Unnatural Magic. Haywood; and Husk by D. Qwill's Thoughts The Blackbird and the Ghost relates the story of Tal Wenlock, a slightly magical tomb raider and amateur historian. Tal is not perfect but is bright, mostly good-natured, and sort of has a heart of gold. He knows he's flawed. He acknowledges he's a thief and more, but he has a very good reason for the personal quest he is now on. Steer slowly unwinds the reason that Tal is looking for a particular treasure never giving away too much until the ultimate reveal. The worldbuilding is exceptional. Steer's descriptive powers are top notch.
The reader gets a true sense of place whether on a sailing ship crossing the Boiling Seas, in a local bar in the town of Port Malice, or underground in a long buried palace. The descriptions never overwhelm the story which is driven by Tal and his search. In addition to the inventive worldbuilding, Steer develops his main character well. You really get to know Tal Wenlock and start to get to know a character introduced later in the story who I hope we see more of. No spoilers here. As a rule I don't like prologues but the prologue in The Blackbird and the Ghost did not bother me much to my amazement.
It is a nice starting point to the story, invests the reader in Tal, is not too long, and does not give the ending away. Well done. Steer ties up the main story with no cliff-hangers and with intimations of adventures to follow. The Blackbird and the Ghost is an exciting and well-paced novel with wonderful worldbuilding, a terrific main character, and a deeply engaging plot. You'll find that this is one of those books that is hard to put down.
Disaster's Children is published on November 5, by Little A. The Qwillery : Welcome to The Qwillery. I had literally never heard of Kafka. The moral of the story? I begin by writing fairly detailed outlines in sparse bullet point form, then I go back and fill each beat in with character details, phrases, snatches of dialogue, etc, and I keep adding to it until the outline document eventually gets too unwieldy. Relatedly, the fact Twitter exists. As I grow and develop as a writer, though, I find myself better able to withstand that unconscious mirroring.
The other thing not mentioned in the description is that my protagonist, Marlo, is an adoptee. What appeals to you about writing dystopian fiction? I was also drawn to the idea of cults and other cloistered communities that exist on the fringes of society, but I wanted this community to be free of the usual hallmarks of cult life—a bedrock of religious zealotry; a single charismatic leader—and instead be entirely committed to rationalism, democratic decision-making, and secular living.
There is a truly depressing amount of material available, unfortunately, outlining the various ways in which the planet is being fucked up, perhaps irrevocably.
I also kept reading about various billionaires who were buying up these tracts of land in remote, relatively pristine places like New Zealand as insurance against the coming environmental and humanitarian crises, and that became a fascinating rabbit hole of intel that cemented the decision to have my ranchers be a wealthy, extremely privileged set. The stereotype of doomsday preppers being these paranoid, disenfranchised hillbilly types is starting to feel outdated, and I wanted the book to reflect that subtle shift. It conveys the precise mood I wanted—a scene depicting the natural world that is both beautiful and unsettling, as if something terrible is lurking just beyond the misty forest.
I also love the addition of the little bee next to my name. Wolf was more difficult in that he has secrets that could only be revealed gradually, and characters that have an unreliable aspect are always tricky to portray—you want a reader to be intrigued but not frustrated by the gaps in their story. I wanted to explore not only the physical threats but the huge psychological effects that eco-anxiety is having on people, and the various ways in which humans around the world might deal with that.
Do we become activists and agitate for change? These are the moral questions at the heart of the story, and I hope they provide a compelling reason to stick around and find out which my characters choose! Well, funny you should ask!
