The Wolf Warrior - Kayla Larson

We are excited to share a new author with you - Kayla Larson.  Today's episode focused on her novel Wolf Warriors.  The storyline is quite intriguing.  

Let us share a quick description: The gods are at war, The land of Argethlam is beset by hard times, and Atreyavahl is near collapse because of the assassination of their Queen Viesha a century before. A prophecy tells that the god of darkness, Ardeth Anubace’s Black Wolf will bring the fall of the Inner Kingdom and then Argethlam, leading the world into Ardeth’s rule. But Ramos Ra, the Sire-God, created his own champion, the White Wolf to defeat the Black Wolf and purge the land of Ardeth’s curse. Mercenary daemon Debello has wandered Argethlam for 100 years with amnesia. He searches for the only clue to his past, a daemon named Vaulx. Once pieces start to come together, Debello soon realizes his forgotten memories were to a life hidden in the Inner Kingdom of Atreyavahl. And that he may indeed be one of the Wolves of the prophecy. But which one? Ardeth’s Black Wolf, a paragon of death and destruction? Or Ra’s White Wolf, the only hope Debello’s world has? Is Debello Life…or Death? Author Kayla Larson brings a new world to stark life surrounded by ever present death in her debut novel and the first in a series. THE WOLF WARRIORS from Pro Se Productions. - From Amazon :)

We asked Kayla what tips she might share with other newer authors.  She laughed at one point asked if she could share that caffeine keeps her  Zing!  A piece of advice that she shared that we found to be huge is to commit to writing every evening even if what you write doesn't end up in your book.  The point is to keep the creative juices flowing.  Therefore, even if you write a daily blog post, you are writing are you not? Yep - writing and keeping the channel open.
Often you hear people tell you to never give up, but Kayla is a wonderful example of that.  She shared with us that it actually took her around 10 years to get this first story in writing and released.  Does it have to take 10 years?  No.  But, if it does, so what?  Never give up your dream!
On a last note, she shared that some of her favorite resources are Google and Facebook. Nowadays, some might think those are obvious resources, but many people would not think of them.  So, we really loved that Kayla shared the importance of these excellent tools and resources.  Her other favorite tool is Open Office. :)
So, grab a cup of joe, get a pen and paper, jump online and get busy!  There is no better time to start than right now.  Well....after you listen to our interview with Kayla!

Kayla Larson has been writing most of her life. A bookworm at a young age, she grew into the art and passion of storytelling, starting with short stories and later creating novels and writing fanfiction. All of these old tales of which can be found in hundreds of notebooks stashed away in many boxes. She has written poetry, skits, and newspaper articles. She takes inspiration for a number of authors and holds dear her autographed photo of her favorite – Dean Koontz. She enjoys fantasy, science fiction, westerns, mysteries…anything that can whisk her away to another world.
