Flawed to the Core: Building Memorable Characters and Writing

…And I’m back! Welcome to Outpost Dire, home to the shared Dire Universe of epic, grimdark fantasy, military sci-fi, thrillers, and more! Let’s dive right in.

I haven’t talked about this book in a while, but it’s still here. This will be the second book I publish this year, after releasing Volume II of the Dark Legacy Series: Mark of the Profane. If you haven’t read the first, you can catch it here.

Flawed to the Core (FTTC) is a deep-dive into characters: what makes them tick, how to develop a well-rounded character, their motivations, and delivery of a well-crafted, flawed individual that can wear the skin of any fantasy race or sex. Strong characters aren’t “strong” because we say they are; great characters are resilient and only grow through adversity, overcoming the obstacles in their path. Whether they fail or succeed, the journey has changed them, and that’s what readers want to see, an evolution … or, to put it in more writer-friendly terms, a character arc.

While FTTC is still months away from release, I would like to allow a few people to beta read it and give me feedback, likes, dislikes, what was something new they never thought about before, what they incorporated, and so on. If you’d like to read this book, contact me through the blog, and I’ll send you a link to a copy.

That’s it for this round, short and sweet. I shall return…
