Hey! I'm science fiction author Zachariah Wahrer. I'm currently writing the Dawn Saga, a 4 book sci-fi epic full of nano-tech, artificial intelligence, and telepathic aliens. Ask me anything!
The venerable George R. R. Martin said of writing book series: "Start with short stories. After all, if you were taking up rock climbing, you wouldn't start with Mount Everest."
I didn't do this, and after years of writing, I am set to release the 3rd book in my series, Destroyers of the Dawn. It hasn't been an easy journey up to this point (maybe Martin was right), but it has been extremely rewarding. Incidentally, I'm also an avid rock climber, and wouldn't recommend it as a path towards summiting Everest, either!
On the business side of things, I'm an indie author, meaning I do all the behind the scenes work to bring my book to market: cover design, editing, organizing beta readers, promotions, etc. I've always been really into DIY, and chose to be an independent author, rather than leave my creative projects and fate in the hands of others.
Before I started writing, I was in bands for a number of years, including punk and experimental rock. Eventually, I got tired of the drama and the grind that went into it, and decided to try my hand at writing. Now, a decade later, I'm a full-time author.
Feel free to ask me anything! I'd be happy to discuss the creative process of writing, the business aspects, rock climbing, or more details about my book series. AMA away!
