Influencing the World
Jul 20, 2016 by Jeffrey L. Kohanek
Governments and societies have a dramatic effect citizens' lives, shaping their views, beliefs, and perception of the world. History and the daily news have shown time and again the level of influence that governments have on society. Accordingly, when a fantasy author chooses a government to build a world and story upon, it can have a dramatic impact on numerous elements, including character motivation and plot.
Authors are fans of their fans

Authors and readers create a symboitic relationship, one unable to exist without the other. We authors are fans of you guys, too!
May 04, 2016 by Jeffrey L. Kohanek
A defining element of epic (or high) fantasy novels is journeying to another world, born of the writer’s imagination. This type of literary work offers the author numerous opportunities and a plethora of challenges. Before writing the first word of a new epic fantasy novel, the author should have a comprehensive strategy for the world-building that is about to take place.
