An Experienced Author Shares His Tips on NaNoWriMo

By Michael D. Young

So, you want to do NaNoWriMo? Good! And good luck! It’s not for the faint of heart, especially if writing is not your primary profession. I’ve done NaNoWriMo eight times and managed to write the full 50,000 words seven out of the eight times, all while trying to juggle family and work life. Though it can be difficult, it’s an incredibly rewarding experience that has produced some of my favorite work.

Future House Partners with Stormcrest to Offer Gaming Fans a Master of Wills Novelization

Future House Publishing has partnered with Stormcrest Games to produce a book based in the world of Master of Wills, the online and board game sensation.

Master of Wills takes place in Novus City, a dense metropolis overrun with warring Factions. The game pits two Factions against one another in a battle to see who can gain control over the Community and become the Master of Wills. This world is reimagined in Michael Darling’s Hollowfall, through which Darling brings the characters—and the battle—to life.

Randy Van Gelder, the Creator of Master of Wills, said, Hollowfall is something our entire community has been waiting for. Connecting the Master of Wills lore with the incredible writing style of Michael Darling has injected life into so many of the characters. We can finally feel their emotions, take in their personalities, and hear their inner thoughts.”

Author Michael Darling is a man of many trades. He has worked as a butcher, a librarian, and a magician. Most recently, he is known for the Tales from the Behindbeyond series in which he showcases his talent for fantastic worldbuilding and ability to fuse humor, magic, and epic adventure in unique and thrilling stories. 

“The captivating world of Novus City thoroughly liberated my imagination,” Michael Darling said. “As my mind explored, I found fascinating ideas around every corner, just waiting to be appreciated, combined, and made to blossom in ways that will reward the game’s legions of fans and delight new readers as well.”

Creative Director at Future House Publishing Adam Sidwell said, “Michael’s talent makes Hollowfall a novel that both sci-fi enthusiasts and gamer geeks will love. Whether you’ve played the game before or are just barely being introduced to the amazing world of Master of Wills, it is sure to draw you in. You’ll find yourself yearning to be a part of it all.

Future House Publishing is quickly making a name for themselves as a niche publisher that specializes in effectively crafting great books around previously established worlds. With the success of previous Future House novelizations, such as Mythica: A Quest For Heroes and the Super Dungeon Series, Stormcrest Games and Future House look forward to the exciting release of the Master of Wills novel. 

Hollowfall will be available in March 2020 through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever books are sold. Master of Wills can be found at https://masterofwills.com/, on the App Store, Google Play, and soon to be released on the PC through Steam.

What Sets Fantasy Apart from Other Genres and Why Is It So Popular?

When it comes to fiction, everyone has their favorite genres. As the fourth most popular genre behind romance, action, and science fiction, fantasy always tends to fall within the top 5.

Both sci-fi and fantasy put readers in another world and usually another time, but always with the understanding that there is nothing commonplace about what you are about to read. (more…)
