Tyler Danannabout this book: What inspired the book was the adventure of a lifetime to the USA back in 2012!
In the Rocky Mountains the dream of writing, incorporating the rugged ways and buildings that dot about the landscape. There's a very frontier atmosphere in some parts even now. I set the adventure story of survivors struggling to thrive and survive within a world turned upside-down by a strange disaster. It's The End Of The World As We Know It. There are villains trying to destroy and good folks trying to preserve what's left amid the ruins. Out of the ashes comes the start of an exciting new age.
It is at the Mountain Hold and the surrounding area that the final stand must take place.
Primary readers of this book are North Americans, often from the southern parts but all over too.
It took me six months to write, but longer to get from 1st to final draft.
The title took ages to come up with. I went through long-winded titles and elaborate working titles until I kept it simple with Mountain Hold.
Originally I designed and made my own book cover, but it wasn't very good, it didn't leap out at the reader and was quite amateurish. The nice and fancy one showed a woman I thought was a bit like one of the characters with the rugged mountains in the background. As you may have guessed, this was by a professional artist.
The hardest part of writing it was editing it and preparing it for paper-publishing afterwards. I am not joking this was incredibly tedious, challenging and a steep learning curve. E-Books aren't nearly as challenging as Print books are. The cover, the spine, the blurb etc. I think a year of editing was needed before I was confident enough to say 'This is ready.'
This is only book 1 by the way, I have already written and launched book 2 as well! But that is another story ...
