Robert Vane & 'The Joined Realm' @GoddessFish #Fantasy

Today we have author Robert Vane visiting. Welcome!

What would you like to tell readers about yourself?
* Robert Vane has been writing stories since he was eight. It’s been his full time job for two decades – but not the stories he wanted to write.
* Inspired by a lifetime of reading, beginning with “classics” like Privateers, the Amtrak Wars, Darkover, and the Belgariad to name a few (yeah, he’s old), Rob has been pecking away in his spare time. The Joined Realm isn’t the first full length novel Rob has written, but it’s the first that he felt ready to share. Big thanks to Amazon!
* Keep reading and writing.

A look into...
~ Blurb ~
* "Control the water, control the world"
* From inside the lush expanse of the Inner Realm, the Ghosbane family and their fellow waterlords rule the Joined Realm through their mastery of the ancient aqueducts that feed the vast Drylands beyond their domain. After being accused of a terrible crime, Arlon Ghosbane, the inheritor of a secret legacy of the vanquished overlords of the Joined Realm, is forced to flee from his family and the only life he has ever known. Guided by a renegade howler intent on freeing his race, Arlon discovers that a world far different than one he had been taught about lies beyond his water-rich homeland. The fate of humanity will be determined by the decisions of a young fugitive and a former slave as they fight for the future of the Joined Realm.
~ Excerpt ~
* “Well done, Artemis-Silver,” Arlon gushed when the howler appeared satisfied that the fracas would not immediately draw more ruffians into the chamber. “T-They intended to k-kill me. In cold blood, throw me from that window.”
* Artemis-Silver walked to stand near Arlon, his lupine features impassive. Blood matted the howler’s fur. The hilt of a massive sword stuck up from the scabbard strapped to his back. The creature gazed down upon Arlon, who felt a chill of unease at the look from that imposing form. Artemis-Silver regarded Arlon with a gaze that no howler had shown him before.
* “You must get word to the other howlers of what my stepmother planned,” Arlon told him. “These men tried to murder me, and they are holding Kostas prisoner…”
* “I did not come here to save you,” the howler told Arlon.

How long (on average) does it take you to write a book?

Robert Vane said...

Pace of writing usually depends on how much free time I have (this isn't my job). I usually can find 1-2 hours most evenings after my kids go to sleep. It took mw about a year to write the first draft of The Joined Realm. My next book, which is currently with my editor, only took about four months, mostly because my kids were away for a few weeks over the summer and I had much more time. RGV
