Captain’s Log – Stardate 71231.9
I was recently asked some questions for an interview about my writing career, so I thought I would share some of thoughts and answers that may interest you.
How do you handle success and failure? Being an author can be challenging, not only in being isolated, but also reading reviews and not taking comments personally. I do feel like I am blessed as I’ve surpassed my own expectations in selling books and being given the opportunity to write as a full-time career. I feel that failure is part of life and a way to learn from those failures. It can be challenging in the moment to know what those lessons are, but in the long run, I try to keep my feet on the ground and grow with each new challenge or opportunity.
What makes you write when you’re exhausted and your fingers ache? My readers and fans, first and foremost. I get a lot of email asking when the next book is coming out, which is a tremendous honor to an author. But when I feel stuck, I put on Heavy Metal music, which helps me focus on the task of writing and storytelling.
I activated a feature on my Goodreads author account so that readers can ask me questions. Here is some information about the process.
Readers can ask questions and receive answers from their favorite authors, like ME!!.
To ask a question, visit my profile page https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/14120855.Christian_Kallias?from_search=true
Scroll down my author profile and you will see a space called Ask the Author.
You can also select "More answers from…" to view all of the questions I have recently answered.
When I answer your question, the question and answer will appear on my profile as well as in the news feeds of my followers, and you will be notified on your Goodreads homepage and by email.
Also, just a reminder that Book 9, Into the Fire Part I, will be released in October. You don’t want to miss out on the continuing saga of Chase and what happens with the Earth Alliance as the Fury arc slowly approaches its conclusion.
Book 10, the final chapter, is scheduled for release in mid-November or early December (a good Christmas item for yourself or someone you love). Also, The First Universe in Flames Trilogy (Books 1-3) is still available for $0.99. Get your copy while you can at this discounted price, and don't hesitate to tell your friends or colleagues about this deal.
I have the pre-final (I might still make some last minute tweaks) cover for Book 9, Into the Fire Part I.
I hope you continue to check in for further developments and updates. Cheers!
