Ever wonder why Alex didn’t get a job working with computers since
he’s so good with them? We did too. Enjoy!

He came to me and we worried the idea over about two months, creating characters, magic, the guilds, the entire world frame for the story.

We had characters show up that we hadn’t planned for and finished with a completely different ending than we originally plotted. We set up a Facebook page for our series and a forum site for readers and characters to play in. That led to us creating over a hundred characters profiles to play with there so we could use their posts in the story. (Hard work, but fun!) When we were done, we let it sit for a few days, but both of us found we didn’t know what to do with all our suddenly-free time! It was like going cold turkey on caffeine or sugar!
