The Godling Chronicles by Brian D. Anderson Blog Tour Interview

Hello all!! I'm today's stop in Brian and Jonathan's blog tour. I have asked them a few questions, so sit back, relax, and get to know them a little better :)

About the Book:
Give me the blurb for the book in 140 characters or less:
An action packed fantasy advernture for readers of all ages. I hope you love reading about the world of The Godling Chronicles as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

Do you have a favorite character? Why is he your favorite?
Jonathan - Gewey. He's not afraid to stand up to evil
Brian - As for me, I like Lee Starfinder. His impulsive nature reminds me of myself.

What do you hope readers will get from your book?
Brian - I just want them to enjoy the story. That's all. Whe Book One was written there were no hidden meanings, or obscure symbolisms. I only hoped for the reader to have a great time.

About the Authors:
What/Who inspires you?
Jonathan - Fun stories like Percy Jackson and Harry Potter.
Brian - My son is my biggest inspiration. Without him, none of this would be possible.

Hardest aspect of writing? Best/Easiest?
Brian - Hardest - Keeping track of things. By the time I was in the middle of writing Book Two (due out in Nov.) I realized how big the story had become. As there will be at least three more, I see that become an ever increasing challenge.
Easiest - I guess I'd have to say writing is easy when things click. Sometimes I sit down and it's effortless...of course sometimes not so much.

Who is your writing hero?
Brian - J.R.R. Tolkien. To me the most brilliant literary mind of the 20th century.I'm still blown away but his work, even though I've read it many times.

About the Future:
What’s next for you?
Brian - The Godling Chronicles - Book Two: Of Gods and Elves, is in editing and due out in November of this year. I'm currently writing The Godling Chronicles - Book Three: The Gathering, and hope to have the first draft completed in a few months.

Do you have any advice you'd like to share with other aspiring writers?
Brian - Worry more about your characters and story, and less about how well you write. That's what editors are for. You can clean up your prose with editing and practice, but there is no substitute for a great story.

Sweet or salty?

Beach, plains or mountains?

Online, letters or in person?
Jonathan-All of the above
Brian-In person

Ebook or print?

Here are the authors. Aren't they handsome?? ;)
