Reflections on the Fang: TW Brown

brownThe Black Fang Betrayal is a collaborative effort arranged by J. Thorn. It is a dark tale of magic and sorcery. When I received my invitation to be a part of this book, I was not only surprised, I was a bit intimidated. This is not a genre that I had even a passing familiarity with at the time I was asked to join and write a piece.

Worse still, I have partaken in a collaborative effort in the past. It did not go well. It had no real structure and you were simply given the piece up to your chapter and told to take the story from there. It was worse than playing the schoolyard game of “Postman” in Hell.

I knew right away that this was going to be different. For one, there was a very specific structure that was laid out and that we were asked to adhere. I decided to give it my best shot.

To be honest, I sort of expected to send my portion in and then receive a polite email saying “thanks but no thanks.” The degree of support was amazing. In the end, I believe that our little group of authors put together something special and almost seamless. Yes, you might be able to pick out the varying styles, but I believe that only strengthened this particular story. I was amazed and delighted at the finished product.

It was my pleasure to be a part of The Black Fang Betrayal as a contributing author. It was an honor to be included with some very impressive names. I hope that readers will find it entertaining.

    It was a thrill to be a part of this project. It made me work to be a part of a genre that I had never before delved into. Add in the amazing talent that surrounded me, and that was icing on the cake.

  • Dave Weirs

    Interesting, I haven’t heard of this one before. Will have to check it out now!

  • Caroline

    I look forward to reading this. It kinda reminds me of a writing assignment that they give in writing class. I’m curious about the story.

  • Heath Stallcup

    Congratulations. I honestly don’t think that I could do something like this. To only write a small piece of the entire puzzle? To try to make your piece fit seamlessly with everybody’s own interpretation of the final picture? Ambitious, to say the least. And it shows the raw talent of those involved to be able to pull it off.

    It wasn’t always easy but it was a blast. I need some rest but I’d definitely do it again. Thanks for the comments, Todd, Dave, Caroline and Heath.
