"And then really you know if i hadn't gone afghanistan. I'm not sure. If i would be a writer but just some of the stuff that i saw on experienced felt over there really had no way of dealing with it when i came home and so you know kind of turning back to this thing that started before i left. Afghanistan helped me help me just discovering almost by accident. This form foremost of therapy and the the'discovery in so that was intriguing and then again you know i just had fun with it so i kept going so i think that's why i write is You know there's there's story that. I want to tell their and on a day to day basis just makes me a better person. So it's kind of this positive feedback. But i think that does tie into you. Know why does humanity right. Why don't we tell stories. I think you know we're all telling ourselves our own story every day You know if you want to change your life trajectory just telling yourself a different story now. That sounds glib but you know if the story you're telling yourself is i'm a nobody and i. You know. I have a dead end job. I'm not going anywhere and this is all there is well. That's all you're going to be but if you took yourself this is the hardest. Second act i i. You know i'm the character. That's that's has my back against the wall. And this is the point where i rediscover this new thing that. I didn't realize i had kate within me. And that's gonna help me overcome this. Well maybe you're gonna go back to school and learn a different trade. Maybe you're going to fight for that promotion that you didn't think was possible. There's all these different things that you can do to yourself. And so i think as humans were natural storytellers. Even even those us who think we are creative at all that we have a creative bone in their body every day. We're telling ourselves a story. We're just probably not aware of can tap into that internal narrative and then you can change it and that becomes powerful and i think writers throughout history have known that whether they were writing history of others before them. They still had a point of view that they were trying to make come across. I mean tacitus is reading about the germans. A bunch of other people but really what he's writing about is his own roman society of times that he hates for trying to reasons. It was you change. And i think that's all of us inside where you know kind of rating radi matt out what we want to see and what we'd like to tell end so some of us put pen to paper and some of its don't but i think we're all doing that and then the final question you know fantastical. It's kind of a chicken and the thing. I think you know my parents introduce me to star trek at a agent. So i was watching that when i was little Mentioned see us in the listen a bunch of others. So i don't know if i hadn't read as early on have come to fantasy eventually. I'm not sure. But i think you know. A lot of stephen king describes the fiction as extraordinarily people doing ordinary things and genre as ordinary people. Doing extraordinary things. I think that's probably unfair to literary fiction but but at the same time. I think there is some truth there. I think seen people putting people that look like us that talk like attacked like us. They're you know not necessarily special at the beginning and then you don't fantasy often. They're they're finding out that they are a special throughout the story so that's kind of successful foment but ultimately you know through seeing them struggle in extraordinary ways against utah. Existential crisis is that we don't fish ourselves. I think it does let us tie that back to those ordinary everyday. Struggles though and you know feel like. Hey if randolph. Were can you know become the dragon reborn in face down the dark one then i can go to work tomorrow and i can face. You know this term paper. That's due if i'm in college or you know i can face this side this marriage that's falling apart or all these different difficulties that we're feeling. I really think that writing is a form of therapy whether whether we mean to be or not. And so you know rating those and reading those types of fantastical stories helps us face the ordinary everyday challenges of life. And what fantastical story are you working on now. Yeah so. I have my next series. Were were out pitching right now. Hopefully we'll be. We will be picked up. But it's about this fantasy world trying to rebuild from this far future post-apocalyptic wasteland In their best hope rests on these majors called runic. Use split based magic ken. So there is radiation strewn cities route ruled by cenci and a fe. There's clans of uplifted guerrillas called desert per game. There's god's with strange magic and there vying for the hearts of people and nations and so throughout all the tension there's these characters that are Are rude necks in their own people their their own. Magicians are go mad and start leveling cities and so it's about this group of brunettes called justice who tasked with stopping them and finding out. What's beyond their. What's behind their madness and sort of like an x. Men of injuries meets the matrix. So that's the next big series. I'm working on and hopefully gets picked up and You know you're talking about a couple of years. It sounds very cool. And where can people find you online. Yes brian van load the.

"At saying what if something different happened in the past wow. I imagined resurrection being on an iphone video and be coming on facebook Well i think that would would surprise a few people. I gotta check that book out. Now you got me interested in it I tend to lump authors in with every other creative endeavor. And i think i'd probably do that. Roy wrongly It seems to me. And i can see that. Bhai your shapers of world volume one and volume two That there is a greater Comradery support system Cooperation attitude between authors than the necessarily would be between filmmakers musicians. Comedians other people in the creative arts seem to be a little more backbiting and competitive and all it is is the author world competitive. I guess it is in a way but only because you're all competing for the same readers but it's not like i'm also an actor i've done a modicum of professional stage work over the years and it's not the same thing is not the kind of competition. Get his actors. Where every tearing you audition. You're up against dozens or hundreds of other people that you're you know if if you don't win you don't get that job and you're back working at starbucks so I think there is a different level competition. There in i presume in the music industry competing for i would. I don't know i think there's more camaraderie in the music industry. Maybe you'd know more about that. The grandma batches they there are cliques. There are cliques of people who get along but outside of that click. There's a lot of back stabbing and a lot of you know bad talker and it's the same way in stand up comedy too. I mean it's it can be brutal like there are people who who grabbed gravitate together but for common protection almost like a primeval Support system to protect us against the the bad tribes And there's a lot of that in both in music and stand up comedy and filming. I would say in writing there. Is that as well. Because people are people than they will form tribes and they will. There will be people who they are convinced starry. Evil and carnage. Don't want to have anything to do. You know. I just think that's human nature. Unfortunately but in general. I think writers perhaps a little less than than actors of these switches. The only other one. I have any sort of close connection to well you. You mentioned acting but also involved in music because i noticed And by the way off. I had the a url scrolling across the bottom. There isn't lincoln the description. Edward willett dot com. There is a link in the navigation to psycho music and it seems to be some stuff where you and friends are singing are. Are you involved in music as a A series professional thing or is it just a hobby Well when i've done theater i've done opera. And i've done musical theater so and that when you know i haven't done a lot of professional over the years but i've done some and so yeah. I'm a professional singer than that way. i've sung a lot with high level. Choirs like the canadian chamber choir. Which is a nationally audition choir. I've sung with that I've sung with a very local choir. That sort of that level. So i do a lot of that. I do a lot just for fun So it's it's a. It's a bit of a mix. It's not something. I pursued as a great way to make money professionally on stage. Well it's like it's like being an author if you get into it solely for making money you're going to be solely disappointed only disappointed. The acting site is. I did not want that. I toyed with the idea of pursuing at one point but You know it's everything you do you audition and you don't get the work. And they're huge gaps in between and and you're you can't especially in stage acting which is what i would probably have been drawn into. You know six weeks here six weeks there and you don't really have a home your always traveling to the next gig in the next city. Unless you're lucky enough to be on broadway and even then you're only there as long as the show run so it's a very uncertain lifestyle and you know unlike writing which is We are up against the hour. And i want to be respectful of your time. A couple of questions left here Now i noticed You mentioned Eddie will it Easy blake Why what what. Why didn't need for that for that. There's actually another lee. Arthur chain is another one of my aware that one it book about because of my part because i write poussin chicks and fantasy so my first two books three books for d'abre science fiction. They said well fantasy selling better right now in your book in all greg. Why don't you send you wanna a switch to we want you to switch fantasy. So i became arthur chain wrote a fantasy novel hba for one book and then my next one i proposed was a very different kind of fantasy novel. It was almost why a the fifteen year old protagonist and well. Maybe you need another suited him for that to separate you from these other two personas and so i became easy. Blake for a trilogy called the massive agreement which is actually my most successful book at first when masks under that pseudonym and then after that it was like well you science fiction again. So when i write science-fiction. I'm edward willett but i write fantasy. I so far for dive had another thing. That's interesting because i was going and you answered the question. And i answered it away. That surprised me. I would think that it would hurt your brand in necessarily hurt your Your sales I think people get used to buying from a an author in it so it would just confuse me about that but i guess it works at whatever. Works you stick with it. It's it's a marketing thing and it also had to do with bookstores. and what they would order from. You know a an author's writing science fiction would they order a fantasy novel by ham or if he had but if you have a new author writing a fantasy novel it's i just did what the publisher wanted to write. I want to talk a little bit about the publishing stuff. And and then. I'll let you go here now Because you book just are i. I don't want this to sound. Like i'm putting other people that you books from the cover perspective seem super professionally level up of a lot of from a lot of what i'm saying and there's this cliche right That we've all heard so many times you can't you book by its cover but so many people do now working as a self publisher. I think people Kind of struggle with putting the cover together. Are you involved with your coverage at all. Does your when you when you're dealing with a high level publisher like you. Are they take care of all of that for you. All the marketing stuff all of stuff. That's going to help make that book. A success. the lab any any input on.

"Rules or science. I think i have more of a science fiction mindset in that i'm always looking for ways to explain fantasy without you know trying to give it a little bit more of a a real field but i'll i'll go back and forth right whatever kind of story. I went to right without regard for scientific fact if mexico story. Allow that because a discussing the process. As you do on your podcast as i mentioned in the Intro discussing the processes interesting to me because If you're going to lay out a story as you say with rules different rules a world does. Do you have to spend a lot of time explaining what the rules of the world. You're creating creating ought to the reader so that they don't feel freaked out about and where i'm going here. We reviewed a film last week on law monthly film segment and it started out. It seem like a very real movie. And then by the end the rules chains and i was not aware of it like no no explaining why all of a sudden think movie that film that was started out as a portraying a real relationship type of thing all of a sudden became magical and me and and things laughing. I didn't understand like what happened to we do. Is this another film. Did we just changed from pure drama into drama. Is she imagining this. All this kind of stuff. So when you're writing a book do you have to lay out those world of the rules of the world you creating in some kind of detail to let people know that when this happens. You're not gonna be freaking out. It's not you it's a different world. You're not used to. Yeah and that's one of the great challenges of writing both science fiction and fantasy is and it also depends on the level of the reader. Who's reading it. So there are readers who loved to be plunged into a strange world without any explanation and try to figure it out as they go along There are other bidders who would get lost if that happened and it's always a challenge in writing science fiction fantasy to provide the reader with enough information so that they feel comfortable they can follow what's going on without bogging down with a long lecture and you know i've been guilty that occasionally and i think most writers have where you somehow arranged for there to be a lecture or or something where somebody explaining stuff that you need your characters to know. But it's always it's always a challenge and you just have to make sure that there's enough there for the reader to feel comfortable and not lost andrew. Heft as you were just saying you know you want it to be consistent so that when something happens the reader doesn't go wait a second completely contradicts what you told me the earlier part of the book and then there likely to just you know. Throw the book across the room or something at so with with that in mind That's that's a tricky kind of a thing to you. Don't wanna bore them with trying to teach them the rule. So you have to be creative in in the way you Approach that now. I talked to so many authors on here in the process is always different amateur. You have experienced this two and a lot of people have the idea. The whole story thought out ahead before they write a single word. Lot of people outline or put post it notes and all. It's what is when it comes to you. Do you start with in your head. I think thinks the whole story did. Are you one of the people like what we call what i guess By the pants who just put a piece of white paper there and starts typing away. Has it where. I'm a bit between and again on my podcast. That you mentioned the world shapers. I asked this question all the time. And i get completely different answers from developing And my mind is a bit most of my books now for dom in new york. I'm selling from a synopsis. I don't have to write the book first and then trying to sell the book. So i write five to ten well. It's probably more like tin single spaced pages. Kind of outlining how i see the story. So i'm thinking through the whole story of my head. But then when i start writing i may never look at that again and mike the book i'm working on now. Which is my next one for donald. She'll be out in. Twenty twenty two is called. The tangled stars insists big sprawling space opera thing. And i have a sketch like that. But as i've been writing it The characters are taking it in different directions and characters propaganda nowhere that i didn't know i was going to need a writing about them. So i'm kind of in the middle of that pancer at plotter a dichotomy The most extreme version. I know in my own. Podcast others not the name peter v brett. Who's a bestselling authors books. Called the demon cycle. I think it's called and He writes massive hundred and fifty page outlines before he starts writing actual book and then just basically fills in around that outline and then there's another bestselling author kandara blake whom writes wii fiction. And she's as all now she just start it. Just whatever works for you yeah. Recently i had a lot of people who just start with a blank page. And and just and i can never the bravery. It takes to do that sometimes. I i i guess not. Because you don't necessarily have to show it to somebody but i would. I would be terrified by that. Like i have no idea. I'm just going to let my imagination. Run on a wild white canvas and all of a sudden. It's going to be a work of art by the time i'm done. I never have the face in my own creativity to do that. I have some kind of foundational idea aware. I'm gonna go with this before. I begin usually so. But you're right all those Everybody talked will have a different approach to it. And that's what fascinates me about it like So many people again you you talk about the importance of reading. But i'm wondering like you know how that plays into as how artist of unwanted developed his style from what they've read is there any correlation. Beyond like books. I've read are going to dictate my process and how i approach writing the you think there's anything to that. Well i don't think it will dictate the process of writing but it probably dictates your instincts for telling stories. You develop I think the importance of reading is that you develop a sixth sense of how stories are told and how they need to be paced writing. I just have this feeling. I'll get to the end of a scene. And i just somehow no there needs to be seen break there and i know that now i need to go over. And if it's a melting viewpoint story ninety two this viewpoint and it just and i don't think that's anything. I have consciously learned or studied that simply come because of reading all of the books that i read especially when i was growing up. When you're most impressionable and you learn things about you know characterization and what you're talking about of of getting that information out to the reader about what's going on that's what i think. The value of reading is all writers are dealing with the same set of problems in the more you read more. You see how other writers have dealt with those problems. Now how you get to that goes back to the whether you're making it up on the fine. I could write like that. I have occasionally as just right now when i'm selling books based on a synopsis obvious to have to have a synopsis so i work from that to start with Whether you start like that you start with nothing or you. Start with the massive outline. It's still the actual pacing in writing of the story. I think that you learn from all of your reading. You said the phrase now at times Selling books and i know there are some people out there listening. Who is that. What is that How do i how do i get. I find that. Is that a magic sauce Selling books first of all. Was that your goal when you when you started. And and secondly when most of the aspiring authors. I talked to. That's the number one concern is. How can i sell more books. Can you talk to That.

Well thanks for having me so You are sixty sixty bucks you gotta spend your entire life behind Behind a word processor or computer or whatever you assist. Well i've been writing.

I know a lot of people struggle at it and this is part of the reason why this program is exist. Exists is to kind of help aspiring authors Figure out what guys like you are doing to become successful because There are a lot more aspiring losses. Right now but the road seems to be a little bit cloudy and a little bit money on how you access to become a successful writer. You take it's important to start very i don't know about that. I mean my one of my heroes for a long time was fantasy. Author named dave duncan. He was a petroleum engineer. Didn't really start his writing career till he was fifty and went on to very successful world fantasy nominee and all that kind of thing I suspect he was writing. I don't really know his backstory as possible that he was writing all that time. Just wasn't you know acidic publication or whatever but there are certainly people start late in life so it's not an absolute requirement to start writing young. I think it's a requirement to start reading young. Because i think reading is where it all starts. I would agree with that. Except i've had a few authors on here who had some moderate success but told me they're not avid readers. And which really surprised me. But i i agree with you. I would think Knowing as with music you have to listen before he can play and Reading is how you understand. How good authors construct compelling Works that make you wanna read the next sentence constantly So i i don't i don't understand how anybody could do it without being an avid reader but a few people have So what in What inspired you to be a science fiction writer. Did you always have a science background. Would you study science heavily in school. What led you to science fiction and extra was the other way around. I had to old. I still have two older brothers and among the things that they read and so. We're around the house for science fiction. So i started reading. I did start reading very Very early i learned to read in kindergarten At a teacher. That taught phonics. And i taught myself how to read from the phonics that she taught us and so i was an early reader and i wanted to be like my big brothers and they were reading science fiction so i started reading science fiction. And that's that caught my interest and it was actually my interest in science fiction that led to my interest in science rather than the other way around. There is because of reading science fiction. That i became quite interested in science and I never studied it. I decided quite early on that. I focus is going to be on writing. So that's i went into journalism instead. But i always maintained that interest in science and i always enjoyed when i was working at the newspaper writing features that were related to science topics and when i became a freelancer wanted boxy. The i was communications officer for the statue in science center. And i did a lot of research and writing for copy for the for the exhibits. Which just in being built that was right when it was starting up in the late eighties and i started writing a science column which then ran on in various newspapers and on. Cbc radio here in saskatchewan. For oh i guess. I did the radio program for seventeen years a weekly science collins so that my interest in science actually came from science fiction. Link may i probably would have developed it anyway but in my head. It was the reading science fiction that they'd be interested. Science guy Could you say against six catch.

"Welcome back to the GMC Book Review. PODCAST. I am speaking today with author Edward Willett about his third book in the. Moon. Excuse me in the world shapers series. This one is called the moonlit world. He just gave an overview of the series and. as I'm about to say I am always impressed when people can describe books like this coherently and stay tuned to find out why that impresses me. Did a very good job of explaining the series as a whole I. Love I love. Listening to and also trying to explain Science fiction or fantasy books because they can they. They always sound so crazy when you when you just try to describe them briefly, they always make perfect sense when you need them. When you first tried to describe it like wait what. The author you have to take what do I put in? What do I leave out? You know obviously I, I have all the details and it's easy to get bogged down and start saying. Well. That's not quite right. It's really more like this. You know this, but it's sort of like that. Then I try I've tried to boil it down. Pretty good. Yes. Yes. So this one is you said that the freeze Vampires and werewolves and peasants be got that mixed up all my but you know those three things. Oh my running through your head, your initial inspiration or did that to start running through your head after you started writing. Way Back when I first came up with the concept for this, this series always wanted to do a kind of gothic world with where Wilson, Vampires, and that sort of thing. and. So this one has been in the back of my head right from before I even started writing the series back back when this series concept was completely different because. The original concept she's always sean has always been a potter that she wasn't aimed Shawna and instead of living in a world she lived in this long valley and like pleasant little village and it was more of a fantasy setting and all these different worlds opened out through caves in the side of this valley that was the original concept and has changed considerably since then. But I always knew.

"She's a potter, and then there's this terrible attack and her best friend is killed and what appears to be a terrorist attack and the leader of this attack. Touches Shawna and then. Points a gun at her is going to kill her and she she thinks she says this can't be happening. This isn't happening and just like that it isn't happening not only that but it never did happen it's like three hours earlier. None of that ever happened she's the only one that remembers it. She's also the only one who remembers her best friend WHO's now vanished from the world and nobody even. Remembers her having existed. So this sets off alarm bells. And then. A strata stranger carly outsor- She's seen previously. Shows up and kind of explains the that she's the shaper of this world. He thinks she's shown the power that through resetting time that she has the power to. If she comes with him to other worlds within the labyrinth, she can get knowledge of the making these worlds and get all of that to agree or who's hiding out somewhere in the labyrinth. Because the grabbers attack, the school was attacked and there's this adversary who's trying to move from world to world working his way toward a hair and wants to destroy all that I ever in. Taking over the world one at a time and eventually destroying the labyrinth and all the all the world's all the shapers and all the billions of people who live in these worlds. So. That's the basic premise and in the first book Carl and A. Chase across our chased across her version of our world. which is very much like our world with differences like Lacrosse the big professional sports. The DAVINCI code was a musical on Broadway little things like that. And then. The boiler he does. That's one of my favorite jokes. Is there. Hugh Jackman did his best but he just couldn't save it Then then the second one the master of the world which came out last year, which probably what we talked about in the last interview she finds her way into a world that was shaped by somebody who really loves Jules Verne. So it's full of weird airships, submarines, and floating islands and strange weapons and all that good solid scheme punky stuff from. Jules. Verne novels. And then the third one, the one that just came out the movement world is best summed up by the phrase that kept running through my head when I was writing it, which was where rules, Vampires and peasants Oh my. Because it's a world where the moon always shines the full moon hangs in the sky doesn't move constantly. and. It's a world inhabited by where Wilson Vampires and peasants and they have to find the shaper of this world. And you know without getting turned into an undead creature of the night or a like control. So those are the challenges they face in this book. Okay so now that you've got a bit of. An idea of what's going on in this world shapers series I was GONNA say world-shapers world but there's more than one world. So the world shapers series, let's go ahead and take our first break of the podcast in. Back with Edward, Willett?.

If. You listen to the last episode. Then you know today I am speaking with author Edward. Willett. This is his second appearance on the podcast to talk about his world shapers series. The first time he was here we talked about the first two books. Now Book Three is out if you are interested in listening to that other sewed before you listen to this one if you haven't heard it already, that is episode one, ninety, three again interview with Edward Willett that was almost exactly a year ago it was November I last year so. Really Fun to have Edward Back on the podcast let me go ahead and read you the description of the moonlit world, which is book three of the world shapers series. Fresh from their adventures in a world inspired by Jules Verne. Keys and Carl Yasser, find themselves in a world that mirrors much darker tales beneath a full moon that hangs motionless in the sky they're forced to flee terrifying them pick creatures. Only. To run straight into a pack of werewolves. As Lichen, throats and undyed battle Carl is spirited away to the castle of the vampire. Queen. Meanwhile Shana finds short-lived refuge in a fortified. where she learns that something has gone horribly wrong with the world in which she finds herself. Once where wolves vampires and humans lived there harmoniously now every group is set against every other and entire villages are being mysteriously emptied of people. Somehow, Carl and Shauna must reunite discover the mysteries of the shaping of the strange world and escape for an escape it for the next without being sucked, dry devoured, or worst of all turned into creatures of the night themselves beneath the frozen gibbons, Moon allies, enemies, surprises, adventures, an unsettling revelations await. Again that is the description of the moonlit world. By Edward Willett. It is the third in his world shapers series. Now, if you are unfamiliar with this series Edwards, go to talk about it here in a few minutes but there are. Two, the two characters that are mentioned Sean Eckes and Carl yet ser are traveling through different worlds on a quest in each world is shaped by a different shaper. So they can take on the May look a lot like our earth or they may look very, very different As it said description, the last role they were on was shaped by a shaper who was A. Of A fan of Jules. Verne and so there's a lot of steam punk in there was a lot of different aspects of Jules Verne in that and here obviously, we have vampires and werewolves but. The shapers, the shaper who makes each world can put their own spin on things so they may have traditional vampire and where will floor or they may not. So there are so many possibilities in these stories that Edward Rights because. They're based in some things that we might be familiar with in terms of. Literature or popular culture or things like that..
