Blog Tour – Stop #9 (Patrick Satters)

Dear readers,

After a short break, my Blog Tour for The Consistency of Parchment is back … Today Patrick Satters was kind enough to interview me at his exceptional blog.

Here is a short excerpt from the interview:

PS: What do you think makes a great story?

JT: I think that a great story is driven equally by the strength of character and setting. Some authors focus more on the development of their protagonists, their backstory and their evolution; others take pains to evoke a detailed physical or social world within which their story unfolds. Ultimately, both of these elements are crucial to a well-executed book. Character development to the exclusion of context results in a flat, overly-scripted narrative. Fully rendered setting devoid of interesting characters reads like an academic (in the pejorative sense of the word) paper. But multi-dimensional characters in a richly described environment? That, to me, makes for an excellent story.

I hope that you’ve been enjoying the events so far. Please comment on the posts where you see something you like (or even something you don’t), and pick up the book on Amazon as well!
