My dear Lords, Ladies and Gentlemen,

Have you ever wondered how I write one of my books?

Well, here's your chance to find out! :)

I have for some time been considering writing a fantasy-novel or series. Not short stories like my fairy tales, but a real, honest-to-Gandalf fantasy novel / series, with its own fantasy world to go along. My question to you is this:

Would you like to join me on my literary journey? Would you like to help build an awesome world?

You will get a peek into my secret working process, and I – I will get something incredibly valuable. Your input.

You, my dear Lords, Ladies and Gentlemen, are a fantastically diverse fandom from all over the world, and each and every one has a unique perspective to offer, and can contribute a unique cultural heritage. The awesome feedback I've received that helped me improve the accuracy of "Storm and Silence" & my fairy tales taught me that.

This made me realize: there are lots of great things out there, things from your culture, your myths, your language that can be used to create a fantasy world much more interesting and diverse than the average stew of elves, dwarves and orks. And you, at the same time, could get a look at how I craft the world for one of my novels.

Interested?

If you are, proceed to the next chapter, where we shall be discussing (drumroll...) Characters!

Yours Truly
