First of all, I'd like to thank those who are participating in Darkspell's Pre-Book Launch Tour this month! Remember that the 30th is the last day to comment on this week's bloggers for the grand prize! Good luck!
See the poll on the upper right corner of my sidebar? Please vote which color paper you'd like to see Darkspell printed on! Thank you!
Lovely Konstanz Silverbow is giving my signed copy of Darkspell away--hurry, it ends when July does!
So today we are discussing Technology. I would love to see what our FFW friends say about it: Alex, Anastasia, J. D., Deirdre, M. Pax, and Jeffrey. Surely more interesting than mine?
Hmmm . . . Technology? I've written only one book where it takes place around the 9th century where, on another planet, there lives an advanced species. Chengral is ordered by his queen to destroy their ancient colony who've now become the Vikings as we know them. He sails across space in his ship and lands in the forest and tracks these humans. He is no robot nor machine but a creature whom the Vikings label as a demon by his mere appearance.
That's my extent of my technology knowledge in writing!
I can tell you what I think of it as a reader! I think it's fantastic and mesmerizing if it's given in tolerable dosages throughout the novel. If it's saturated, I become bored and lose interest . . . It's death for the book in my view, but isn't that what we're being taught as aspiring authors--things in moderation?
Do you disagree? How do you view technology in books? How do you write about it?
