This isn’t a book full of rules on How You Should Write Your Book.
First off, I don’t even know all the rules to writing, at least not in any instructional sort of way. For every rule identified by an expert, you can easily find someone else who did the exact opposite and somehow managed to create a kick-ass story.
This is a book about how I understand darkness, its place in story, and how I make dark fiction that people enjoy reading.
I’ll show you my process. How I feel my way through a story, looking to dig deeper into the psyche of my characters, plots, and themes.
At its heart, this book isn’t just about the dark, but also the light. And in our darkest times, it’s more important than ever that we hold onto the light.
But first, we must be willing to explore the darkness.
