"You know you need to go and you need to collect these macguffin and then go to this place with the McGovern's sure and using the macguffin is by this specific date you bring magic back okay and it is that sound. Specific time. Yeah. There's like a solstice like, oh, perfect alignment of the planets or whatever, and if you can't bring magic back by then it'll be one hundred years before it happens again, and by then you know this kingdom will have completely eradicated diviners everybody who ever could have used magic and it will just never like it's now or never basic well, and I would imagine now that a in the kingdom I, presume knows that this scroll is missing and so now the threat of diviners becoming magic users again is is bad today. was driving. That is driving the Kings. vitriolic he he doesn't know that Amari has run runaway willingly he just knows that Amari and the diviner have had off. and. He tells non, you know go go get these people improve. You can be king basically it's the classic he's an Evil King but he's my dad and a half two. Oh, sure after juggle. Disagreement with his goals and methods with my need to be loved by Daddy. It's like eons. I. Don't like my Dad's politics but I do love him. We have a lot of tough talks a thanksgiving, but I do love my dad, we do bond over football. So I don't dare is kind of a football. WHOA is there. Is there a like a blitz ball or something like? We don't I mean there's no chapter where we are playing. Let's ball as side quests but there yeah, there is kind of A. Sports League. Sure. Realized World Right Yeah. In Scenarios where it seems like our heroes are in a corner but then somebody has to go to a city where they know a guy it's because they played this like fake blitz ball. Guess Sport Have Love It. Okay. So let's we've established our characters I. Think the only one that you need to we need to talk about a little bit more at this point is non okay. So he is traveling with this This admiral who is also his? It's strongly imply this is Dad's lover. And he is trying to suppress this magic, which is like physically taking a toll on him But also like being, he is a kind of of magic user who can sort of sense the thoughts and memories the Auras of other magic users, and this is the only way that he actually knows whereas Aley is. And how to track her down? So he keeps like she smells like sea salt. And he keeps getting this like impression of her and knowing which way to go and then having to make up read like real world reasons. Real world non-magical reasons why he would know. Specifically. So they, there's a there's a bit of a chase. Our Heroes Get away a couple of times. He's a knob before the not before they're elderly You know the the guy meet this temple knob before he dies heroically like helping them to get away another trophy thing for. Szalay power again is what reaper she she can commune and. Command. The dead. How does just general? How is that for her is weird is it cool?

"In this like chase scroll is there, this role is there. So I mean daily comes in contact with it and she gets magic back. ooh. And so she is she's running with Amari through the city trying to get away from these guards who were chasing. Amari down. and. Daily. Is is noticed by the man who is leading this this platoon of guards and? Even though they escape, they leave an indelible impression on him. This guy is A. Enin his name. Yeah. That's that's a pronunciation got. This. Is the princesses Amari's older brother and as as Zali in Mario running away there is this like. There's this sort of electric connection that Zali and Enin have with each other and it turns out that John even though he's the. Member of this. Of this royal family and they have traditionally not been magic users like he is he is he has latent magical. Abilities and because he's run into them with the scroll, he gets magic woken up inside him as well. Oh. Yeah. So it sets up this this classic like. This constant. Like he'll turn face turn thing that I think you get a lot of fantasy. Don't know if somebody's supposed to be a good guy. You know he's a real proto man. If you know what I'm talking about he is kind of a proto man. Yeah. Little he's like related to the main character in a way and you don't. You think maybe he's a bad guy. But then like randomly at the end, maybe he'll show up and help you out because he's not on board with the bad guy this time. So daily in Amari and Zane all. I mean. Zali has really kicked the anthill. She's supposed to go to town and selfish, and then go home, and instead she has all of the king's guards and the prince himself like chasing her down and she's absconding with the princess. Sure. That makes sense. So they they run like not before you oncoming like burn their village down in a classic end of the RPG e interest sequence. We're going to the over world map now citing overdue for yes. Yes. Right. Yeah. Like you're banished from your village Yup this is good I like way. I will never say anything but to land lines of canned dialogue to you ever again, leave leave this village and never come back. So the three of them all leave on this. On this quest. So daily has this a mentor Mama Aga. Who is a you know? She was a magic user back before magic taken. She's an older woman. So like most of her life, she was a magic user and she's a a sort of a seer like. Somebody who can see the future and so she sees the three of them, Zane Amari and Zali all going to this. Temple and figuring out a way to bring magic back. Okay. So she sends them all in this quest. An is in hot pursuit. All the while trying to fight down this magical ability that he's just realized he has because it's kind of antithetical to everything that he has ever been taught. Or. Thought about diviners magic users in this in this world internalized self hate. Yes. Okay. I'm. So we we have a classic moment where our Party meets like a an elder at this temple who sort of walks them through..

"My APP. Yeah. Yeah. So they remain unaware the that magic thing and there is no there's conscious interaction between the world's except for world leaders, which then of course, like reinforces the caste system of who doesn't doesn't have magic in that universe to right which is like you you get to know about the real world or not. Based on whether or not you're a magic person. So, what is the the king's Sagan magic away all the diviners are still around they also have white hair it is known that they would've been. Like Mejia's had magic not been taken away. But as it is, they just have this this physical marker that means that there's sort of an underclass in in society okay. Okay. so Zeh League remember like she remembers when. magic was taken away like her mother was killed her father became sort of Shell. Of himself and it's just been her and her brother Zane is that the pronunciation? Say I am yeah. So her her mother was like a magic user was not and so her brother is not a magic user and she would have been if magic still existed by she is not cocaine. But she you know. There is a tradition of diviners in this world sorted trying to. Stick together and to and to. Train, together and sort of keep. Legends Alive, keep hope alive even if they can't train each other and magic like there's still trying to not have all this information be forgotten. Totally sure. Is it like an active culture of resistance or is it more like we're going to? We're just GONNA keep. We're kind of hold onto this knowledge if and when it becomes useful again, it's sort of an underground de sort of resistance like we we have to live in the system, but we are sort of biding our time waiting. Okay. Cool. Perhaps for for something to come up and and to fix this when the Faucet starts running again the Magic Faucet. So daily is. Like she, she has a complicated relationship with her with her brother and heard father because like. Her father's kind of needed. He's needed people to take care of him. Zali has a way of getting into trouble. Some of that is because she is a woman and some of the guards of this kingdom. Think. And do unsavory things as you might expect from dudes with a Modem Power Yup? Of but Zane is it's kind of in a position where he feels like he needs to. Take care of everyone a daily is in this position where the pain of her mother's death and what was taken away from them is with her all the time. And this is this kind of how they exist on the. Inciting incident of the of the book is that the soldiers of this kingdom come through and they are collecting taxes and wouldn't you know it? They have a way of disconnecting taxes, multiple times or raising taxes. On this oppressed minority of the population. Because if people can't take pay their taxes than they get kind of brought into indentured servitude, which you can never escape from I guess it is a legal form of slavery essentially.

"I Love I love this but if all goes away tomorrow like it's still not the core of my identity. It's my job and I've read. I mean I spent what I spent almost twenty years writing without anyone reading. You know so. It's a goes back to that. I think it's just. I think people get in trouble when they kind of tie this metaphorical noose around their neck. And it's either the attention or it's the money or it's the acclaim like and like if you need those things than you're always holding yourself hostage. There's no room for joy sneer. There's no room for joy. There's no room for joy. I guess I try and be as much of a self contained unit as possible and so which is a gift and our full place to be in. I think we all have to do it in some way shape or form. But that's been I found. That's when I've felt happiest That's when I felt more saying most in control when I'm like. Oh this is my job the same way I used to go into this office. And Upload adds to twitter like that was my job and so being making it my job and my profession but not my life I think has helped balance out a lot of those other pressures because I also put a lot of pressure on myself to free amazing things like I'm never satisfied with anything. I'm still mad satisfied with the first two books so I don't need the per like I put enough pressure on myself to make it as good as possible so I know I don't need to outsource that love wall. We have two questions from some folks who have watched your segment on your attention please. Okay so our first question is from Pierre in Ohio. Pierre says or Pierre Asks I should say Told me do you pull any inspiration from your personal experiences when writing l. Yeah they're all everything I've ever written is just memoir fantasy fan fiction and so it's it's a lot of the questions. I was getting when book to I. Came out is like Oh. It's so dark and I was like yes I was in a very dark place and so It's I use. I mine as much from myself and from the people in my life as possible and mostly. I really mind my emotional truths because I think that's what makes our resonate when it's like whether it's a fantasy or whether it's real it's like when there's there are universal emotional truths that every human being unless you have like an intense psychological disorder. That's my grave McGuire thing. I was like well do sociopaths. Feel that so I don't know but the average human we all experienced these same emotional truths whether they're positive emotion old truce or negative emotional truth so I really focus on that. And it helps make the writing I think I think than the readers feel it but then also personally it does help me to. It's just it's weird to see your own life as a story because lives aren't actually stories but they are stories and so for me. I see different parts of my life like books and so two right things for Zali and then be like oh my gosh. This is me living out this thing. This has me living out. This liked I. It's in way writing. It allows me to see my own character arc because whatever they lease dealing with is usually what I need to deal with and overcome And then it's the same with the other characters that everyone just represents a different side of me and I always say they have the best parts of me in the worst parts of me. So so yeah. It's I think that's part of the time I don't know if this is creative. Just took the information the data. I have from my own personal experiences so yeah I think it's good to make stories personal. Our next question comes from an anonymous. Hulu Subscriber. I want to know what is the key to being a bestselling author? And how does it feel I think the key to being a bestselling author is to be relentless fighting for yourself And for your book and Yeah because I've seen especially having being in a place now where I've seen and met a lot of like bestselling authors commercially successful authors. That is the one common thread. It's not about like I mean one. They care they care about their stories. They don't write things that they don't care about And they try and do their best. I think that's a big part of it but I also think there's that relentlessness. Um Not settling knowing you're going to have to do even as someone who's had a book on the Best Sellers List for two years You know it's like I basically did my cover. I had to do a lot of my. I'm very very intense about my marketing. I'm intense about my. You know like it's not you can't hand over the reins and expect a lot of success because no one is going to care or fight for your story or yourself. The way you will so I think the earlier you can realize that in the earlier you can say okay. I want you know I had a friend literally say I WANNA be a New York Times bestselling author and then she busted her but you know when no one else believed in her she busted her but for years and she got there and you know so it's like you again. It's not that it's impossible. It is difficult but it has to be your like okay. I'm the protagonists. This is my goal now here all obstacles in my way let me fight them and and how does it feel it still surreal? It's still very surreal. There's this incredible high like the first time you see your name on this list in which you when you didn't even think you would ever really have a book out one day So there is that high in that disbelief and then it's mostly cereal it. All of this stuff still feels very surreal. So for this next segment. This is your opportunity to just sound off about anything. That's on your mind. It can be anything that has been like weighing on your mind heavily or as exciting to you. Something in the news. Something that you recently fell in love with But just two minutes. All you go okay. What is been consistently on my mind? And what has been that just keeps coming up either through the things. I'm reading or the things I'm hearing is just the importance of having the right people in your car. I'm going all the way back to our driving metaphor. It's like you have one car and there's a difference between having that car full of people who love and support you that you also love and support and having that car full of people who are draining literally the life from you who are really dumping all the gas out or playing lake. I don't WanNa say country music because some people love country music but like if I was driving across my life and someone was like we can only listen to like Blake Sheldon situation for me so I think it's just it's makes a world of difference. We don't think we have that much power over the people that we allow into our car And the people that we say you know you can't be in this car anymore. But you do you have full control over that and a lot of the of the bad things. I went through was because I had people in my car that I shouldn't have had and so when I finally said not even not even a bigger explosive way just when I find Melissa. You like you know what I don't have a mini van anymore. I have a jeep. It has four seats. These are the people filling them like. I wish you the best. On this journey. My life changed in a guy was so much better. And it's weird to say you don't have to talk or interact with people who cause you pain Or who like make you cry. But you don't you actually don't. It was a funny realization. So that's been I guess the thing I'm most passionate about is I think we as humans we tend to be really complacent not just with like our lives but also with the people in our lives and I say people can be anchor. People are usually inkers or balloons. So it's like an anchor pulls you down the drain you they drain your time your energy your resources your money And balloons lift you up. They make they give they they make you feel so euphoric you know they make you cry. Because you're laughing so hard or because you're so proud of that you know and I will just say I think that can be our lives work to fill our lives with anchors and and that no sorry to fill our lives with balloons. I think most of the time we kind of complacently Miller lives with anchors without realizing it well. Yeah don't feel weird about wanting to spend the time that you exist on this planet with people who lift you. I was really surprised to hear about Tommy's career before she veered off that highway and towards being a fulltime writer. I think a lot of times. It's always helpful to learn about the work that our heroes were doing while they were making some of our favorite books at the end of the day. Writers are human at the end of the day. Every story starts with a single word with a single letter. It's not all about pure magic you look at especially like Tony's books are very long and it can be sort of intimidating to think about how to get through that story and how to Be Able to articulate an idea as fully as some authors are capable of doing and so it's really always such a gift to hear. Any writer articulate. The journey of their lives did really love to find another partner and thinking morbidly very casually deal and I think oftentimes we just be shy away from his conversations and It was just really nice to talk to another person who sees world sees and makes and understands worlds in ways that don't shy away from difficult conversation. I hope that anyone who's out there and listens to today's episode understands that there is always an opportunity to take a turn at that exit towards the thing that you want to accomplish. Those things can be large or small but they are always on offer and available to you and as Tommy mention. It's so incredibly important for us to think about who is in the car with us. Who is riding shotgun? Okay think about it. Make sure that your whip is fit with the team.

"So I spent at least ten years alone in my room writing these fantasies. View this these romances and the magic and the adventure that I wanted to have for myself but part of that fantasy was being white or being biracial and I. I hadn't even known I had severe self esteem issues at that point. I knew I wasn't in the healthy situations because my high school had twenty six hundred hundred kids and like sixteen of us were black But you know I had good friends. I had the majority of good teachers of course with the ratio of that in sort of a kind of upper for middle class predominantly white neighborhood. Of course I had experiences with racism but because those were the vast minority like I would say maybe one percent maybe one maybe three percent of my puberty years were negative encounters. I've ninety seven percent of positive positive encounters to go so I thought I was doing a lot better with myself and I was like Nope in your imagination in your dream and your biggest fantasy. It's not just it's about having magic. It's not just about Writing Dragon. It's not just about this epic romance it's also about Owen. I can be white here. How how magical is that? And so that was a big turning point where I realized okay I need to write stories with predominantly black characters as an exercise of self love. Like I need to learn how to to do this. And that's going to help me love myself more because stories are my love language so this was my love language to myself. We fast forward a year or so. The Hunger Games adaptation comes out. There's this Internet backlash against the Black Characters in the book and Film Adaptation Like Manolis. Term Bergman Glenn Kravitz and a Mandla was like eleven at this point or something. She was literally a child and I was so heartbroken by that because there was all these things like. Aw Wire all the good characters black. It wasn't sad when route died because she was black like this. These weren't even people using like a frog team like these were people with their names with their faces races. tweeting this bullshit into the Internet and eat. It broke my heart because I'm like I didn't even realize they were black people in here because I'm I'm so where's the ball. It's a very captivating story so I'm not really looking at what people look like but second of all I was like I didn't even recognize that I was actually in this one and for some move you it was so distracting. That not only took you out of this narrative you you're legitimately mad about it so that broke my heart I remember. I saw the movie three times in theaters and the second time the scene. Where ru is is dying? I was sobbing. 'cause I'm like at that point I was like Oh people the literally watch this and didn't care or they were angry to watch this little black girl die. And if you hate this fictional black girl so much how much do you hate me and this was also the year with Trayvon Martin getting shot. I thought at that point that racism was the substitute teacher who picked on me or like the geometry. The teacher who told me I was going to work at McDonald's I thought it was like the isolated incidents of ignorance with people who didn't matter because even at that age I was just like you. You're you're not even worth my time and you're an asshole so I don't care about your opinion but when I was like Oh this is still a life threatening thing. This is still a big hatred. I was like okay. What I'm doing for myself writing these black characters for myself? I need to do for the world because we need a hunger games where everyone's black so even when people are mad they still want to see it because everyone's talking about it and it's an exciting story and we all love exciting stories. I've loved magic and fantasy since my first Harry Potter books. I'm always looking at these images. I love anime. Like I'm surrounded by magic but I saw a a picture of the Arusha in a gift shop in Brazil and then I saw a picture of this beautiful black girl with like luminescent green hair so about a thousand pages of thousand pages came from two pictures. These are isolated incident but all of this is banned from that. And so. That's why I'm so aggressive about the need for representation because I'm like it just Kinda took like these. Four incidents seeing people like Carrie Washington Shington scandal Lupita after twelve years if it took like basically less than ten things for all of this to happen. Imagine what the next generation is going to be fuelled on Black Panther fuelled on children a blood and bone fuelled on on this stuff. And I'm only talking from one representation. We have crazy rich. Asians we have transparent stories matter. Because that's how we connect that's how we identify with other people. That's how we see ourselves and people matter because you're always looking at the person who looks like you to figure out like Oh what can I do while you're doing this so I can do this logically but if I don't see you doing this and I can't do this again we're simple. We're just big dogs dogs so it's like it's as complicated but it's just simple. You need to see it to believe it and especially if you're not from that identity you need to see see it to understand it or it's always gonNa be foreign to you. There's always going to be an empathy gap. Because you're like. Oh you're human too. You're scared of your your mother-in-law to Oh you love your grandma to you like food to again we're simple..

"It was just a realization that none of this happens by accident. No one is where they are by accident. I didn't really know all the background about it until reading the hate you by Angie Thomas. Yes the premise of it is essentially the hate you give little infants fucks everybody and he was more speaking from the perspective of the black community. It's like if you pump trauma into black children than that trauma. Then is what they pump out. In general I believe that is how humans work we all have a door that is clipped us. Whether it's a friend. A family member spouse a partner a love interest teacher in for me. Like a literary agent Someone I you know. You can't avoid trauma if you're alive but it's about how much loved you have underneath all of that. So if I'm seventy five percent love and twenty-five percent trauma I can bounce back and keep putting out love if I'm fifty fifty. Now it's up in the year you go one hundred percent trauma. The one hundred percent traumas going out so I do think it really is thus that ratio when it comes specifically trauma and then I think that also applies to again other things if you want a child to empathetic pump empathy building like activities conversations exercises into their life. You want them to be exposed to more people uncomfortable with different types of people expose them to different types of you know it's like we were just as simple. We just have thumb so we can give of ourselves streets but in flake other than that we operate very much the same way. We have a breaking point for trauma we have a breaking point for positive ositive qualities. And if it goes in. That's what's GONNA come out. So that's why. I think it's just so important to make sure you were pumping as much positively as possible because you know life is GonNa pump in trauma you know. Something eventually is going to happen. So it's about. How much have you kind of baked in there to to counteract that Ladies I have a secret and it's that I hate brought shopping and I have another secret and it's that third love is the answer Sir to your Bra woes too you can go online and they will fit you online without you having to leave your house as you know. I don't like leaving the house especially for things like shopping in these bras are incredible third. Love Bras are designed with millions of women in mind you can have them latch in the front if that's more comfortable and accessible for you. They've abused measurements of millions of women to really understand how brothers supposed to fit and every third Lebron comes with a perfect fit promise where it and wash it for sixty days. If you don't love it return turn it for free. You can go online. You take sixty second fit finder quiz. I did it and the bras came and they do fit. I have some with under wire without it. They're amazing third. Love knows there's a perfect brought everyone so right now they're offering my listeners. Fifteen percent off your first order go to third love DOT COM slash. Good kids to find your perfect fitting Bra and get fifteen percent off your first purchase hurt. That's third love dot com slash. Good kids for fifteen percent off. Go do ladies if I think. Think about the negative things that were pumped into me. I would say most of that was from the world and a big part of that was representation. One reason I am so I call it militant because I know I'm like an aggressive person. I'm sensitive 'cause I'm an artist but I'm not like delicate I mike like our and so one reason I am so aggressive about it is causing the first story I ever wrote. I wrote when I was really young. Like five or six six I could. I was still seeing myself in my imagination and so I wrote the store I wanted a horse I wanted to twins. I wrote the story. The characters were literally named told me Tomi They also obsessed with the parent trap. That's where the twin came in so they had to be on a horse farm and get their parents back together and again. But I'm like oh I love myself so much I put myself in the story twice in every story. I can find from that point until I was eighteen years old because his eighteen was when I realized I was doing this all my characters were white or bi racial and it was really disheartening to me and like obviously problematic automatic but it really broke my heart because no one read my stories. I didn't share my stories with anyone so it wasn't like someone at one point had told me. Hey black people can't can't be an stories. I literally looked around me at all the stories I loved all the TV shows. I loved all the movies. I loved all the books I read and because I never saw someone like me me I was like Oh. The world is sending a very clear message that I don't belong here which means I don't belong in my own imagination.

"The following episode of Good Kids Contains Language we love but that might not be suitable for tiny ears. Hey this Tomiichi Emmy and I'm on good kids. How not to raise an asshole? So when I think about my own childhood hood and like okay what things what positive things were pumped into me that are like foundations of my personality and identity. Now what negative things were. We're pumped into me that you know. I'm working through to counter act. It's definitely the work ethic and that hustle mentality which is a kind of to me a big trademark of Nigerian culture growing up. I was the only friend who was expected to get straight as like I remember I remember specifically it was one subject and I was like Dad. I got an a minus. Will you can do better. And I was like And I was like Okay Dad. I got an A. and he's like you can do better and I was like Dad. I got an a plus you know and I'm like you know that's that was my teenage mic. Drop like what are you going to say. What are you gonNA come back with literally talking about one hundred? And he's like. Yeah that's what you're you're supposed to do and I was like I can't win with you and of course as a teenage girl. There's a lot of resentment and animosity and you know like he doesn't get me. None of my friends are like when this person's mom when she got a B. She was happy with that. And like I'm bringing home and they don't even knowledge. You know like that. That is the ED. My teenage told me response to that as an adult I am a perfectionist both to my detriment and to my strength because I know I they do really good work but I'm also never satisfied with that work because there's always something in me that's like it could be better that sentence could be sharper that character are could be smoother. This description could be the more imaginative. That's how I look at my books. I never look at my book like this is good. I'm like is every word of these hundred and forty thousand words the the best that it can be if so cool if not this is trash thrown in the fire it took. I only know it was eighty eight weeks because the children in a blood and bone was on the bestsellers list for eight weeks But it was that we where I wrote in my diary and I'm like you know what I decided. I'm okay I could do better but I did my best for that for the situation I was and so it's like that's that's how I am and that's how I know it's always going to be. It's funny because I don't have kids yet but I have a Bernese mountain dog and the act of just keeping being something alive literally keeping something alive kind of put me in a parenting mindset. That never been in before I understand. Humans wins so much better from raising a puppy or trying to raise a happy puppy in to do not an asshole literally because you know some dogs are assholes and I was like. I don't want my dog Esl so that is honestly really changed the way I look at this because the thing that happened with my dog wants that really really made me think about humans in a new way is we moved and we moved To a place that had a heavy front door and so going into the front door she clipped her tail once and I could see how like like she was okay but it was like a little jolt pain and I could see how jarring jarring that was for her because she never been in pain going in and out of the door it happened one more time and even though she had had dozens of successful in and out the door the two times of experiencing like a form of trauma took three months to train out out of so she would always stop before she entered the front door. I had to literally build her trust with that door and I was like wow. It's this easy to traumatize a dog. How much easier is it to traumatize?.

That's w I x dot com in stay tuned, after the show to hear you can take advantage of special offer for talking tech listeners the other day. I went to visit a hotel in central California cold in at Morrow bay, two days later, I went to look up its phone number in, in the listing, Google Tomi you visited two days ago. Well, gosh, I knew that I was there. But why does Google no this in? Why is it talking to me about my past visits while I'm Jefferson Graham back with another addition of talking tech Koogle's half-baked reasoning for the tracking is so it can make better recommendations to me. If I visited the Moro bay a really nice resort on the water overlooking, the marina will theoretically not recommend that I stay at a quality in on the side of the highway instead, if it knew that I ate lunch. Had nasr. He's dockside restaurant. Also in Morrow bay, which specializes in fish, well, maybe wouldn't offer up steakhouses in searches that's the theory anyway, I asked the crowd how they felt about the tracking on Twitter. Got some pretty interesting replies. My friend rich to mural better known as rich on tech for his tech reports said he loves it, quote, I can go back in my time line, and remember, exactly when I visited a place last unquote to, which I would say, I know I bought gas at Chevron in San Luis Obispo yesterday, and that I paid a hefty four dollars and thirty cents a gallon. I don't need the reminder if I wanna remember there's this little thing I love called photography. That's why it takes so many photos, because it's between me and my camera Bill Bieb a web designer and fellow photographer agreed with me, quote, it does feel creepy to you think it's better that Google reminds the population subtly how much they know or just leave it off. Unquote. Yes, I think some things are better off left unsaid. You're gonna track me just stop reminded me about it. Okay. Will now I did try diving into my Google security controls to try and undo the tracking this can be done by going to your account and entering the security area. Interestingly, there was no option to turn it off only deposit which suggest to me that Google will just turn around, and click it back on Google warned me, not to pause saying, if I did, so it would quote limit or disabled personalized experiences across Google services. For example, you may not see recommendations based on places you visited or helpful tips, about your commute unquote all servive. Thank you very much.

"Welcome back to the gmc book view podcast i am speaking today with andrea tomi author of house of belonging the third in the hesse creek series and i am not going to yell at my fictional characters anymore because they don't have any so don't worry try to behave myself for the rest of the interview let's go ahead and get back to the conclusion of that interview with andrea tomi so you're working on the series next with van and his brothers do you have an idea for roughly when that might start coming out i think it's going to i mean my my goal would be sometime between even in september of next year probably september just because i've given myself a little bit of liberty with writing i my husband asked me to help work on his hall of fame speech with him we had so that was kind of a big undertaking that's a big speech that he's giving and so i've been reading a lot of that and blogging and doing different things so the book and seeking a bit of about this summer but i just finishing by the end of the year by semper rose to flee myself imposed deadline and that should get me into production and on schedule for next summer or or at the latest number i think you so you started your career as a journalist is you mentioned so you've always written what what made you decide to go in the direction of writing fiction well i just think i if i would've known everything probably that it those profession i dunno scared me so i think ignorance is it's just i started writing this way almost as a sort of cathartic process after my mom died just to sort of i wanted to write something with a happy ending we'd been through kind of a long illness with her and it was really tough and i knew she loved writing so much so i wanted to do it pale mosh to sort them this way and and then this story just came out and it was happy uplifting and made me feel better that was like free therapy i think that's an once i knew how good it feels like you can do you have then advice for aspiring authors besides maybe ignorance is bliss yeah yeah if you just scourged if you do think that it seems like a lot because it is doable i started virtually zero knowledge of anything even i finished my first novel and didn't even have anything in place for editing and had to go and kind of do all the so it's it's fun and it's interest meeting and i think it's it it's made me grow so much of the person so i think if you even have an inkling that you might wanna do it sit down and start writing and i would say treat it like a job really try to write a little bit everyday set yourself a goal that that's helpful do you have any certain rituals around your writing view have i don't some authors talk about pinterest boards or playlists or things like that do you have anything like that when you write by have i love both of those things actually no but i.

"Young adult novels by nigerian american author tomi adeyemi who had 24 years old got a sevenfigure deal for her west african inspired story that draws on parallels of police brutality and empowerment of women and girls and dissect them in the fantasy world of arusha we like adventure if we love adventure as you know he loved third of the rings ilet harry potter we loved one hundred nimes then i think all like young adult authors who are especially writing in like the fantasy or sifi general influenced by that like a lot of us we are in the harry potter generation so he grew up with this amazing magic we grew up with a in the books and then we got to seed in the movies so that was a big influence on and that i think for the authors writing today like the hunger games really change the game because you know harry potter got really dark at the end on the hunger game started their man it was sort of the proof that you could deal with real issues like real ugly dark issues in books for teens and they can handle it and not only handle it like they can really process they can think deeply about it this is a heroins story for sure the asif community themes there's there's lots of magic and and action seen yeah right off the bat pageone where the fighting starred yeah you're heroins zali there's one scene where a big weapon is coming at her and she liens back so far that i'm thinking this is like nieto in the like all the way way i was so happy they have that only because like when when i'm writing these actions scenes i'll have real references i'll be looking at like bites the staff i'll be looking at its lending i'm really ins mma so when i'm writing fights the in the mike okay and then like pivot and really get there with the elbow user hips the for that scene for.
