An interview with Steve Holak author of a new fantasy trilogy – The Winds of Heaven and Earth

Steve Holak’s The Winds of Heaven and Earth launches a new fantasy trilogy, blending epic and contemporary genres, and WWBB wants to get down and personal.

Hi Steve, let’s start easy. How many unpublished
books/stories do you have lurking under your bed?
I have a “trunk book” that will see the light of day after I
finish the Keystone, Lodestone, Clarion series (I say series instead of trilogy
because I have this horrible feeling that, as I write book two, ideas are
emerging and the third book story is mutating and I’ll have to commit a Robert
Jordan and expand the scope. We’ll see.)

How long has it been
It’s been banging around under there for 15 years.  It needs a complete re-write. The core story
idea’s good, but I was too immature as a writer to pull it off: it suffers from
the lack of a direct and strong antagonist, and the protagonist doesn’t have
the “transformative journey arc” through the tale, things like that. That’s the
book I want to be my Magnum Opus; I’m a stronger writer now, and understand the
plumbing of fiction much better—and I’ll be even better by the time I’m ready
to write it.  Probably 2015.

Anything else?
I have an outline for
a space opera, and I’m researching the Roswell saucer-crash myth on the side: I
want to give that a kick-ass literary treatment and bring all the Roswell mythology
together the way Justine Cronin did for vampires in The Passage. I have enough
to keep me busy for the next half-dozen years, at least.

You sound really
busy. How do your juggle a writing schedule?
Like a chainsaw juggler. I have a (bill-paying) job that
requires 24/7 availability. I’m away from home 13 hours each day—I leave at
5:30 am to drive to the train station, and get home at 6:30 pm. Fortunately, I
get about 90 minutes of train time every day, and that’s where I do a good
chunk of my work. We have an arrangement at home: I get Monday, Tuesday, and
Thursday evenings to write after dinner—so I usually manage an hour or two
before I get tired–and a half-day on the weekends. During the summer, I teach
scuba a few times a month, which eats up most of that weekend. Let me get up on
a soapbox for a minute: Despite my schedule, I still manage 500 to 2,000 words
a day, so I have no sympathy for aspiring writers who say they don’t have the
time—make the time if writing’s important to you.

Well said! So, what’s
the best and worst part of being a writer?
It’s the coolest experience watching characters take over
the keyboard from you and type their own behaviour and dialog. I spend time
detailing and developing my characters on the side so that they each have a
unique and recognizable voice. (I think that shows very clearly in WHE.) A side
effect of this is that they’re on automatic when I start writing and it’s fun
to watch. The worst part? Do I even have to say it? The marketing. The
continual, shameless marketing. I’d love to just write and have a machine do
that work for me. (Yeah, you know who you are.)

Print Edition

Do you start your
projects writing with paper and pen or is it all on the computer?

I’m a digital guy. I do a “Snowflake“ process—write down the one-sentence blurb, expand that to three sentences describing the three-act structure with gating scenes, expand those to paragraphs, write a detailed outline of each, then break down to scene level in Scrivener. Describe each scene: POV, goal, conflict, purpose, outcome. Then write scene by scene. Once that draft is done I shuffle the scenes to their final order then finish up the final drafts in Word.

Do you set yourself
goals when you sit down to write such as word count?
Absolutely. Usually 1000-2000 words a day, and about 10,000
words per week. I don’t always hit it, but the important thing is to set the
bar and keep reaching for it until the story’s finished.

Do you have a
critique/editor partner?
I have a wonderful editor, Rebecca Dickson. She does copy
and content, and she’s sharp and brutally honest—she pushes me hard. I spent a
long time looking for the right fit in a long-term editorial relationship; I
wanted to preserve the tone and voice of my work over the course of a career. She
was recommended to me by a client of hers—a fiction author who happens to be a
professional editor!–that’s how much respect her peers have for her. She
misses nothing from copy edit perspective, but also asks questions like “How
can the sun reflect off their badges? I thought the sun was behind them. Just
how far can a bowman shoot one of those arrows? Better research that.” She even
called me out on the specs of a handgun.  She hunts down every cliché, semicolon and
long sentence, but yet preserves my own unique voice. I self-edited The Winds
of Heaven and Earth about eight times before I passed it off to her—I thought,
“Ha! You won’t have much work to do on this one,” yet it took us about 10 weeks
of back-and forth to polish it off. I call her “Bexter” because she kills prose
that doesn’t deserve to live. The Winds of Heaven and Earth is a stronger work
because of her, and I’m a better writer because of her. I wish she’d let a few
semicolons slip by, though.

Careful, people may
poach her! What is The Winds of Heaven and Earth about?
The heart of the story is a man searching for his missing
pregnant wife, and struggling with the events he finds himself and family
caught up in—and what he’s required to do to resolve them. It’s a mashup of
contemporary and epic fantasy, with a leg in our familiar modern world, similar
to what Stephen R. Donaldson did with Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever and Roger
Zalazny’s Chronicles of Amber.  

there are elements of the magical and some nasty otherworldly creatures and events
to deal with, but they augment and color the story; they don’t dominate it. And
the magic has a plausible root in science and physics, as does the magical
realm he eventually finds himself in. 
The book has a heavy nautical theme—by design, but more than I expected
when I began; probably 70% of it takes place on islands or on the sea. The
trilogy has a planned transition in settings and themes, from sea and island in
the first to mountain and forest in the second to a great deal of desert in the

When I finished the first or second draft of the novel, I took a step
back I saw how watery it actually was and began mining novels that had similar
“man on quest with a nautical themes” for suitable epigraph materiel, and I
came across the perfect fit: Moby Dick. The epigraph that opens the book is
from that work, and the title is derived from it. And it’s thematically
perfect: a soul being driven about without mercy by the whims of “the wildest
winds of heaven and earth.” There are also some tensions and conflict between
love and duty driving the story—and that is a conflict that does not close out
until the last instalment.

Let’s talk about the
main protagonist, Jordan Parish. Who is he exactly?
Jordan Parish is the core protagonist of the trilogy. (“Jordan”
is homage, BTW, to the late Robert Jordan, who set the bar for the epic fantasy
genre with his Wheel of Time series. RIP, Robert.) Jordan derives from a
wealthy aristocratic North Carolina family, but he’s a bit of rebel. He doesn’t
want to grow up to be his father, who he sees as meandering through life on the
coattails of his inherited wealth. He disdains his family’s money and influence
(though he’s quick to use it when he needs to), is a bit of a potty mouth and
is about as impatient and quick to anger as one can get. He wants to make his
own mark on the world, not be viewed as a rich kid that had everything handed
to him. Jordan’s just as pissed off about finding out he was born with some
special abilities as is he about being perceived as a Richie Rich. But he is spoiled:
He’s used to getting his way, and is stubborn as a mule. When things go against
him he lashes out at whatever’s around him and runs roughshod over everything
and everyone, feelings be damned. But he’s persistent, and this stubborn
doggedness and iron will are the traits that pulls him through the story. And,
like all good protagonists, he has a character flaw to overcome in order to
achieve his goal—his anger and impatience stands in the way of everything he’s
trying to recover: his missing wife and child. 

How do other
characters perceive him?
Jordan is quick to speak his mind—bluntly speak his
mind–and will pee in the pool with no regard, shame or apology. There are
several scenes early in the book where he’s trying to get information about his
missing wife and he just runs roughshod over people who are actually trying to
help him; he’s only interested in a narrow range of response that fits his
needs. He’s not interested in your Auntie Nellie’s health and he’ll tell you
that. His friends are mortified, and sort of give him WTF looks and try to
clean up behind him. Jordan meets several people along the way who try to
mentor him or give advice; it’s only as things really come crashing down before
he gives them serious consideration and begins to modify his behaviour. The
characters in the story fall into three categories when it comes to their
outlook on Jordan: they either pity him, despise him, or want to use him.
Unfortunately, Jordan tends to treat all three types the same. 

He doesn’t sound very nice. Does he have any redeeming

Perhaps I was a little harsh in
pointing out his flaws. He might have a bit of tunnel vision and tramples the flowerbed
at times—but after all, wouldn’t you be pretty sharply focused if you were
following a metaphoric thread through a maze to find your family? You have to
acknowledge that he has a fire under his arse. His wife vanishes two days after
they announce their pregnancy—that’s at her six week mark.  

(The next few sentences might be considered
very vague plot spoilers, so readers may or may or may not want to avert their

By the time he picks up her trail
he realizes that it’s close to her due date—and if she’s alive she’s giving
birth in a pretty treacherous environment—while some dangerously powerful
people are jockeying for dibs on his kid. And there’s a *lot* of shocks as he
digs into the past of the wife and family he thought he knew.  Melanie wasn’t some woman he met as an adult,
fell in love with and married; Jordan and Melanie grew up together on adjacent
properties. He knew her from the time her family adopted her at eight years of
age. Thought he knew her.  So to uncover
rocks and shine lights in cracks and find things wiggling there as he
frantically searches for her . . . yeah, he’s a little edgy. Mix that with his
temper . . .
(End of potential mild spoiler

Love and loyalty drives him; and those are
admirable qualities. Blunt dogged loyalty that seems to invoke the same in
others.  He collects a supporting cast of
some pretty heavy hitters in the course of his travels, people who wake up one
day to scratch their heads and smile and find that they have been drawn along
in his wake by his persistent dogged loyalty and the way he keeps picking
himself up and dusting himself off each time he’s knocked down. He inspires the
same loyalty in others that he displays for his family.  I should have categorized the three types of
outlooks on Jordan as: his friends who are mortified by his behaviour at times
but understand it, the enemies who oppose him, and those who want to use him.

What would be his
biggest wish or desire?
At the beginning of the story, to find his pregnant wife
Melanie. But before she went missing, it was simply to carve out a spot
of his own in life with his smarts and the sweat of his brow, settle down with
Melanie and raise kids. By the end of the story . . . well, some of those
wishes and desires change, and I can’t give away spoilers. But the bar moves
around a bit.

What would he change
about himself if he could wave a magic wand?
Jordan clearly realizes that his temper and impatience
handicaps him. It’s established early on in the story that a martial arts
teacher helped him construct a place in his head he calls “The White Room”—a
place of calm and serenity he pulls himself into when he needs to drop his
baggage and focus. But he has to really want to go there. Jordan actually does
sort of have a magic wand: at first he doesn’t know how to use it, then he
doesn’t want to know how to use it—but by the second book of the series he’s
generating concern that he’s treating the shiny new hammer a bit cavalierly and
without regard to its consequences.

Thanks to Jacqueline Howett…

for interviewing me on her blog. Crikey, I shall be having “luncheon” next instead of spam sarnies and swapping cider for Champagne!

Yeah, right!

Q. Where do you come from? I come from Northampton in England, the same place where the late Princess Diana lived.

Q. What made you write this book? I love reading chick lit. Funny things naturally happen in life, and I wanted to enforce that. Life is funny, and I enjoy writing about people rather than the actual romance.

Q. Which authors have had a significant influence on your writing? Melissa NathanShe was the first chick lit author I read and I absolutely fell in love with the style. I have read all of her books, sadly she died in 2006 with cancer (she was only 36!!). Through her writing she has shown me that life is funny and delightful as well as scary and heart-breaking.

Meet thriller writer Jennifer Chase with:

One Cop, One Serial Killer, One Witness
Who Will Survive?

Northern California’s elite Police K9 Units arrive at an abandoned warehouse after a high-speed chase and apprehend two killers after they have fled a grisly murder scene.  This barely scratches the surface of a bloody trail from a prolific serial killer that leads to unlocking the insidious secrets of one family’s history, while tearing a police department apart.

Jack Davis, a top K9 cop with an unprecedented integrity, finds himself falling for a beautiful murder suspect and struggling with departmental codes. 

Megan O’Connell, suffering from agoraphobia, is the prime murder suspect in her sister’s brutal murder. Darrell Brooks, a psychopath who loves to kill, is on a quest to drive Megan insane for profit. 

Everyone is a suspect.  Everyone has a secret.  Someone else must die to keep the truth buried forever.  Silent Partner is a suspense ride along that will keep you guessing until the bitter end.

Interview with Jennifer Chase:

Your first books, Compulsion and Dead Game where Emily Stone takes it on herself to track down paedophiles and killers, has received fantastic reviews. Will there be any more from Emily Stone?
Thank you.  I’m thrilled that so many people have enjoyed these books because I love writing them.  Yes, I’m currently working on the third book in the Emily Stone series, Dark Mind.  It’s scheduled to be released in the fall of this year. 

Is she carrying out your secret fantasy (something you’d like to do)?
In some ways yes, I began developing this character after I had a personal experience with a person who stalked and harassed me (death threats) for more than two years.  To make matters worse, he lived next door until I was forced to move.  Everything worked out in the end, but I began to put together a profile for a character I wanted to write.  I wanted a heroine who would track killers and pedophiles anonymously and help the cops behind the scene.  It’s true what they say, good things can come out of a bad situation. 

Do you work with the police/forensics when researching your novels?
I’m lucky to know some great people in many different areas of law enforcement.  It helps me to iron out details or to just run by part of a storyline.  I’ve learned a lot from these extremely interesting people who are the “real” CSI and homicide detectives. 

Compulsion (Emily Stone Series #1)Was Compulsion your first fiction book, or have you many unpublished novels tucked away somewhere?
Compulsion was the first book that I took seriously.  It was originally going to be a screenplay, but as I began developing the storyline it turned out to be a novel.  It literally took on a life of its own.  I’ve written ten screenplays and I have a dozen storylines tucked away for possible future novels.  The more stories you write, the more ideas flood your imagination.  These ideas sometimes turn into parts of other stories or into a feature length story.

Is there anything you’ve done differently since writing Compulsion?
Since Compulsion was originally outlined to be a screenplay, I wrote the novel in present tense.  I know that it makes some people cringe at the thought of a novel written in present tense.  It’s one of those “writer no nos”, but I took a chance.  I personally felt that it kept the reader in the loop with the action and heightened the suspense.  I wanted readers to be right there in the action.  However, all my other novels are written in the “traditional” third person narrative.  After weighing all the options, I decided to conform.     

Dead Game: An Emily Stone NovelDo Compulsion and Dead Games stand alone as individual stories?
Absolutely.  That was an important aspect I wanted to make sure was executed in the series – each novel is a stand-alone book.  If anyone picked up any of the novels in the series, they weren’t lost or felt that something was missing if they didn’t read the books in order. 

Your curiosity about crime and the links between that and the offender’s mind drove you to return to school and gain a Master’s. Congratulations on that, but what was it like to return to the classroom as a “mature” student?
I enjoy learning new things.  It was difficult at first to become a student again and to train yourself to think in those terms.  I was so engrossed in the subject matter and writing research papers, I settled into the student mode quickly. 

What came first your interest of criminology or writing?
Reading and writing has been a part of my life as long as I can remember.  Writing has always been incorporated into my life in some form or another.  Criminology has turned into part of my writing journey that helps to compliment my novels.  I feel that writing and criminology are partners in crime, so to speak.   

I like your epithet for Silent partner: One Cop, One Serial Killer, One Witness Who Will Survive? Why “Silent” Partner? Will it give the ending away if you tell us what made you come up with that title?
The main character Deputy Jack Davis is a K9 cop and he refers to his four-legged partner as “silent”.  Even though, dogs do bark and are clearly visible to everyone.  I liked the idea that dogs know so much more than we think, but they just can’t tell us.  We just have to figure things out for ourselves.  This is especially true for working K9 teams.   

How To Write A ScreenplayYou also write screenplays, and have a non-fiction book out called, very aptly, How To Write A Screenplay. Have you written a screenplay and seen it played out on stage?
Yes, I’ve written and completed ten screenplays and have taught beginning screenwriting online for more than two years.  I also give workshops for aspiring screenwriters.  My last screenplay was close to being optioned and sat in idle for a while between two production companies.  Unfortunately, I haven’t had the pleasure to see any of my screenplays made into a movie.

Has your publisher JEC Press published all of your books?
Compulsion and Dead Game were published through Outskirts Press, Inc.  Silent Partner was published through my own company JEC Press: www.jenniferchase.vpweb.com.  I decided to publish myself for a variety of reasons.  I have control over my work, accounting, pricing, and sales.  One main reason is that I can keep paperback pricing down for the consumer and I have access to recycled paper.  All of my novels are available in ebook formats (Kindle, Nook, Smashwords, etc.), which has been the most popular type of format in recent months.   

Why not a traditional press?
I chose to go the independent route with my work, but that could change down the road.  I’m always open to new or different ways of publishing.  I found that many publishers didn’t even bother to send a form letter of rejection.  It’s the frustration of waiting months, even years to hear anything.  I decided that I had a story to tell and I wanted it to be available.  I’m not saying that mainstream publishing is not a way to go, it just didn’t work for me.  I’ve met many authors who have published through mainstream publishers and then have decided to self-publish to become an indie author.  I think you have to figure out what works best for you, what type of book you want to publish, what are your realistic book goals, and look at all the publishing possibilities.  We live in a technological age and the proven high sales of ebooks seem to be the way of the future.  The publishing industry is changing fast and allowing more people to publish ebooks.

You makes you want to write?
I love to tell stories that incorporate mystery or suspense to keep the reader guessing.  Once I began writing, I found that everything inspires me from people, places, and interesting things.  You don’t have to look far to find something inspiring to write about.  I create some of my best story ideas from being out with people doing my errands.

Was there a character you struggled with?
The process of creating characters for my storylines has been the most fun.  However, I find that I do struggle with the “bad guys” because I want to make them believable and not one-dimensional.  It’s especially difficult to get into the mind of a serial killer and it can be quite tiring at times.  I work out all my characters, even the small ones, with an in-depth profile.  That’s where my academic background assists me in my fiction writing.  I begin to see a person appear on paper and soon after I know everything that makes them tick.  

How do your juggle a writing schedule?
I find that I have a tendency to procrastinate, so I’ve found I treat my writing schedule like an appointment.  It’s difficult to juggle daily life and blocks of writing time.  That’s what makes life interesting!  I make sure that I write every day during the week and leave weekends (Saturday only) to finish up goals from the week. 

What’s the best/worst part of being a writer?
The best part of being a writer is being able to do what you absolutely love.  It doesn’t get any better than that!  The writing possibilities are endless to creating stories and characters.  Each new book you write is a new challenge from the last one.  To me, that is exciting.  The worst part is there are too many stories and not enough time to write all of them.

What is the most productive time of the day for you to write?
I used to be a night owl and write in the middle of the night because it’s quiet and it helps to inspire some of my thrilling scenes.  I found that I wasn’t getting enough sleep during the day, so I changed my writing schedule to a regular workday.  I find that the mornings are more productive because my mind is charged and ready to go as fast as I can type.

Do you start your projects writing with paper and pen or is it all on the computer?
I outline my books.  I begin with notes I jot down in a notebook, which is a brief overview.  Then I switch to the computer to organize my ideas and work out the extensive outline that becomes my choppy first draft.  When I have some minor ideas to incorporate, I use large sticky notes.  I end up with quite a few and then I can put in order and insert where applicable.

What/who do you draw inspiration from?
My inspiration is drawn from everything around me, books, news, experiences, people I meet, research, and creative ideas that seem to come to me on a regular basis.

Do you set yourself goals when you sit down to write such as word count?
This has been the most difficult for me, but I’ve been able to fine tune my goals and productivity.  I give myself a daily writing goal of ten (double spaced pages).  Sometimes I don’t reach that goal (sometimes I write more), but I’ve learned not to not fixate on what I didn’t accomplish and concentrate on the pages I did write.

What are you working on now that you can talk about?
I’m currently in the middle of writing the third Emily Stone Novel: Dark Mind.  I take Emily Stone to Kauai where she’s pushed into a serial killer case.  It’s a fun and challenging project because of the remote areas of the island.  You never know what Emily Stone is going to get herself into or who she’ll meet.

Is she eternally youthful or will she grow older?
Emily Stone ages, slowly of course.  Although, it would be nice for her to stay the same age, I feel aging should be a part of a character’s life.  I like for characters to seem real, learn from their experiences (or not), and have something new to offer the storylines.  I think it helps readers to become more involved with a series and relate to characters as they age, deal with everyday problems, and prepare for the next set of obstacles in the next story.

How do/did you deal with rejection letters?
When I was submitting to publishing houses, I tried not to get discouraged, but no one likes to be rejected.  I developed an attitude that I was going to get rejected before I sent the letter and that seemed to help.  Also, there have been many famous authors who were rejected, so you have to keep everything in perspective.  It’s a healthier way to approach the writing and publishing field.  I also reminded myself that there’s many ways to accomplish a goal.

Do you have a critique partner?
I don’t have one critique partner, but I do have readers and others who give me feedback.  It’s very important to have your work critiqued before publishing, I realize that now more than ever.  I love what readers come up with when they read a new book.  They can see things that I never thought about.  It’s a very productive endeavour for a writer.  

You won an award for Dead Game, you must have been thrilled! Can you tell us a little more about that?
Yes, I’m very excited about receiving an award.  My novel Dead Game won the bronze award in the fiction/thriller category at Readers Favorite in 2010.
Can you sum yourself and your novels up in a few short sentences?
My Emily Stone Series (Compulsion, Dead Game) revolves around a vigilante detective who hunts down serial killers and pedophiles using forensic and CSI techniques anonymously, and then emails the local police departments with the results.  Silent Partner throws a K9 cop and his four-legged partner into a police conspiracy, dicey love entanglement, and on the hunt for a serial killer.   

Anything else you’d like to known in this interview?
First, I want to thank you for taking the time for this interview.  It’s been fun!  Also, I want to thank everyone who has supported me and read my books.  It makes it that much more exciting for me to continue writing.  I look forward to hearing comments and questions about any of my books.  Please feel free to visit me: www.authorjenniferchase.com/


Let’s have a quickie…


Bio: My name is Louise and I am a writer of chick lit and Eden (which isn’t a chick lit, but that was my first book and I wasn’t sure which genre I preferred. Now I do!). I also work as a pharmacist technician for a well-known British superstore. I am married and have four children (all boys). Books I have out now are A Proper Charlie and Eden. 

Sentences to describe your novels: Eden – A tale of romance and survival as three people travel from 2236 to the beginning of time. A Proper Charlie – A sometimes passionate, an always funny story of mistaken identities, misunderstandings and class divide.
