NOTICE TO PHOTOGRAPHERS - While I use images I've found on the internet on my site to highlight the essence of what I want to convey, I am not a photographer but admire the work of others. I will comply with any request to remove an image from my site from a content owner immediately. But I offer to them the opportunity to highlight their work where I would provide links to my audience on how they can acquire the work for themselves.

Free read for my upcoming Cove Chronicles Episode One: Beware Mohawks Bearing Gifts is available from The Works section. You can find the link to the free read here.
 
It is an epic retelling of the Haudenosaunee creation myth coupled with the story of Spruce and Flint and the Peacemaker! But this time with a brilliant Sci-Fi twist. Science masquerading as magic with a queer hero at its core. Mohawks and Quantum Mechanics – what a match! Check it out …

"I speak to you now, the words and the voice of the people. Words that speak of our coming, our creation, and our enduring peace. These are the words of our fathers, our mothers, given to us since time immemorial. Hear now of the sacred warriors, the Tewakenonhnè, and learn what they tell us …"

All Haudenosaunee children grow up with the creation stories.

They are the fabric of who we are as a people. They learn from an early age about the fall of
Skywoman and how she started life here on Turtle Island, of her epic struggle to find a place to land, of seeding the plants and creating the beginnings of animal life that would populate the this new world.

HOOK YOUR AUDIENCE WITH UNFORGETTABLE STORYTELLING

What do Luke Skywalker, John McClane, and a lonely dog on Ho‘okipa Beach have in common?
Simply put, we care about them.
Great storytelling is making readers care about your characters, the choices they make, and what happens to them. It’s making your audience feel the tension and emotion of a situation right alongside your protagonist. And to tell a damn fine story, you need to understand why and how that caring happens.
Using a mix of personal stories, pop fiction examples, and traditional storytelling terms,
New York Times best-selling author Chuck Wendig will help you internalize the feel of powerful storytelling. In Damn Fine Story, you'll explore:

  • Freytag's Pyramid for visualizing story structure - and when to break away from traditional storytelling forms
  • Character relationships and interactions as the basis of every strong plot - no matter the form or genre
  • Rising and falling tension that pulls the audience through to the climax and conclusion of the story
  • Developing themes as a way to craft characters with depth

Whether you're writing a novel, screenplay, video game, comic, or even if you just like to tell stories to your friends and family over dinner, this funny and informative guide is chock-full of examples about the art and craft of storytelling - and how to write a damn fine story of your own.
