The Dayton City Paper interviewed me and author Allison M. Dickson ahead of our appearance for the Second Monday Author event at the Centerville Library.

Anyway, it helps me keep on track and increases productivity.
This is today's bit of the outline I am working from for my 2nd LitRPG (fantasy) novel effort. The tentative/working Title is Monsters, Maces and Magic: Betrayal.
Actually this may end up being two or even three days to work from, depending on how much I manage to write.

Virtually every writer is influenced by what they learned and enjoyed growing up. The movie, Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger, really captured my attention as a youth.
Heck, if you've read Flank Hawk (and the other novels in the First Civilization's Legacy Series) and have seen this movie, you may recognize that the ogres in my novels are reminiscent of the troglodyte in the film.

Here's a link to the interview, which includes the video version.

I came across this remake of the Conan the Destroyer theme music, and thought it was interesting to watch the director and musicians recreate the classic music.
Okay 'classic' is what I would call it, maybe not so many others. Still, it's one of my favorite movies--just fun action/adventure.
Unfortruantely, in the trailer, Malak (the thief that accompanies Conan, played by Tracey Walter) is not highlighted. Yet, I think his part adds a lot to the movie.
