About the Author - D.C. FERGERSON
The Master of Kung Fu and Friendship was born in the smog-wastes of New Jersey, then journeyed to a mountain in Asia. There, he learned of the power of friendship, and knowing is half the battle. The other half is Kung Fu.
He now resides in a dojo in North Carolina, where he has sired a future champion with his Mistress of Friendship. He writes of fantasy and humor, strong women and dragons.
He is the author of The Wicked Instruments series and The Dragon's Dream Saga. His biggest influences are the greats in humor - Douglas Adams, Kurt Vonnegut, and Chuck Palahniuk.
What was the inspiration behind the Dragon's Dream Saga?
The concept came with inspiration from near-future sci-fi-like Johnny Mnemonic and Blade Runner, but I wanted to know what it would be like if these high-tech worlds had magic. So, I liked the idea that this was a future Earth where magic and technology are at odds with each other.
How did you get into writing?
I've always been a writer, I just didn't realize I should be doing it professionally until I was about 30. Around then, I started writing short stories for leisure and the feedback was that I should try a novel. That ended up being The Singer and the Charlatan.
Can you describe your writing routine?
I write a 3-act structure where I plot out the major beats of my next book. After that, I do a chapter-by-chapter breakdown of the events, then I get to writing. I end up staying pretty faithful to the breakdown and try to write 1 chapter a day.
What was your process for world-building for this saga?
I use a top-down method, starting with what makes the world itself different from our own, and then scale down as I get more specific. With The Dragon's Dream Saga, when magic returns to the world, about 3% of the world's population transform overnight to the magical races they were descended from. We find that every legend, myth, and fable we've ever known has some truth to it. So, I had to explore how this new knowledge rippled through the world, and how the world treats these new races. Every nation handled it differently and it was important for me to create a timeline of these events to keep track of it all.
What have you found to be the most effective strategies for marketing your books?
I'm definitely still working on that. Thus far, Facebook advertising has had the biggest swell of sales for me, and seemed to scale better than AMS. For someone on a budget, Facebook advertising can spend a lot of money fast, but the return can be quite large.
