Guest Blog by Jo Anderton - Day Jobs - October 18, 2014



Day Jobs

Day jobs are usually necessary, not necessarily evil, often interesting, but always time consuming. Balancing them and a writing life can be a challenge. But you know who I really feel sorry for? My characters. They're used to hanging out in my study, lobbing ideas at the back of my head and generally bitching about the terrible things I put them through. Can you imagine how frustrating it must be to mope around in an empty room for at least eight straight hours a day? No one to harass into telling your story. No one to guilt-trip when they strip you of your hopes and dreams. I mean, they probably follow the cats around and shout story ideas at them, but cats don't listen to anyone.

But never fear! I have the perfect solution. If I need a day job to earn my keep… then so can they.

Tanyana, of course, works at an artsy architectural firm during the day. Actually, I don't know why she bothers involving herself as the main character in my Veiled Worlds novels, because she makes a bucket-load of money at her day job. She designs the kind of projects that usually get labeled 'public art', and half the population think are a waste of taxpayer funding, but are actually very important and sometimes even practical. They win awards. She actually quite likes her day job, because if she ever has to go on site then there are rigorous OH&S codes to keep her safe. They're much stricter about that kind of thing in Sydney than in her home city of Movoc-under-Keeper. It's very unlikely that she will fall eight hundred feet and land on glass, and even if she did she'd be in for a hell of a lot of compensation instead of a lifetime of drudgery as a debris collector. She doesn't even have to hide the silver bands of her debris collecting suit, wrapped around her wrists and neck, because her clients just think they're the most unusual jewelry they've ever seen, and someone with that kind of taste must be worth the huge amount of money she's charging.

Seriously, given what poor Tanyana goes through in Debris, Suited and Guardian, if I was her I'd just stay at work!

Kichlan… you know, I'm not so sure I'd give him the same advice. Kichlan gave up on a promising medical career to spend more time with his brother Lad. Worth the sacrifice? It’s always hard to tell, isn't it? He could be racking in the bucks by now, and probably saving lives and being generally awesome at the same time. Instead, he works a couple of low-paying jobs with flexible hours so he can always be there when Lad needs him. He probably likes the mail-centre job the most. It's mind numbing, but peaceful. No real stress, not compared to running a debris-collecting team and trying to keep Lad away from the puppet men 24/7. He one he hates the most is the fast-food joint. It's the way the oil from the deep-fryer stinks up his clothes. Which might sound odd, because he's used to smelling like muck from crawling around Movoc-under-Keeper in search of debris, but there you go.

His brother, Lad, has what you might call a kind of developmental delay. In Movoc-under-Keeper this can be dangerous -- the puppet men keep an eye out for debris collectors like him. They're special. But trust me, we do not want the puppet men to catch him! This doesn't mean he can't contribute and help out the brother who works so hard to look after him. Turns out Lad has a very spiritual side -- after all, he's regularly in touch with another plane of existence. He makes a bit of cash doing tarot and palm readings at the local hippie shop. He's also a wonderful yoga teacher. He's remarkably flexible for a man of his hulking size, and once his new clients get over that surprise they discover his soothing voice and calm energy. No one meditates as deeply as Lad.

So there you go, it's good to know my characters are keeping busy when I'm at work and ignoring them…

…Oh, apparently I forgot someone. And they're not happy about it.

The puppet men would like to let you know that they carry their weight too. Which is not very reassuring, because I'm not really sure they technically weigh anything. What do these creatures in their human-masks do when they're not trying to destroy two worlds and generally ruin Tanyana's life?



Actually, I don't think I want to know.

In a far future where technology is all but indistinguishable from magic, Tanyana is one of the elite.

She can control pions, the building blocks of matter, shaping them into new forms using ritual gestures and techniques. The rewards are great, and she is one of most highly regarded people in the city. But that was before the “accident”.

Stripped of her powers, bound inside a bizarre powersuit, she finds herself cast down to the very lowest level of society. Powerless, penniless and scarred, Tanyana must adjust to a new life collecting “debris”, the stuff left behind by pions. But as she tries to find who has done all of this to her, she also starts to realize that debris is more important than anyone could guess.

Debris is a stunning new piece of Science Fantasy, which draws in themes from Japanese manga, and classic Western SF and Fantasy to create this unique, engrossing debut from the very exciting young author Jo Anderton.

The grand city of Movoc-under-Keeper lies in ruins. The sinister puppet men have revealed their true nature, and their plan to tear down the veil between worlds. To have a chance of defeating them, Tanyana must do the impossible, and return to the world where they were created, on the other side of the veil. Her journey will force her into a terrible choice, and test just how much she is willing to sacrifice for the fate of two worlds.

Interview with Jo Anderton and Giveaway - June 30, 2012

Please welcome Jo Anderton to The Qwillery. Jo is the author of Veiled Worlds series that begins with Debris and continues with Suited.


TQ:  Welcome back to The Qwillery!

JA:  It's very kind of you to invite me again!


TQSuited, the second novel in The Veiled Worlds series, was published on June 26, 2012 in the US and Canada. Tell us something about Suited that is not in the book description.

JA:  Hmm, what does the book description say? Tanyana has chosen to side with the Keeper... stand against Puppet Men...own suit becoming aggressive against her... yes that all sounds about right... What else? Ah, I know. On the surface, this book might look like it's very focused on Tanyana, on her struggle against the Puppet Men and her fight against the suit drilled into her bones. And sure, it is. But it's also about Lad.

Suited is where Lad comes into his own. He changes, in this book, from the scared half-man, half-child, listening to the voices in his head and relying heavily on his older brother. He starts to come to terms with his role as a Half, to understand the importance of his connection to the Keeper, and insist his own voice is heard accordingly. This is Tanyana's book -- her journey, her choices, her mistakes -- but it's also Lad's.


TQ:  Without giving anything away, what is/are your favorite scene(s) in Suited?

JA:  That's so hard to say! There are parts in this book that make me cry, and moments -- at the end in particular -- that still send a tingle up my spine. But I can't tell you about any of those without being frightfully spoilerific. So instead, I'll tell you about Tanyana and Kichlan ostensibly on assignment, stealing a sweet moment together. Hiding in the shadows, sharing homemade food and cheap wine. Close to each other, comfortable with each other, and happy.


TQ:  Which character has surprised you the most in The Veiled Worlds series so far?

JA:  Natasha, definitely. You'll see why...


TQ:  What do you wish you'd known when Debris, the first Veiled Worlds novel, came out that you know now?

JA:  That it's always good to have a short, sharp spiel about your book handy at all times! Because people will ask you, 'what's your book about?' And you really will have little more than thirty seconds to tell them, before they lose interest. So in order to take that opportunity, to engage with them, to get them interested, you gotta know what you're going to say in advance!


TQ:  What is most challenging thing for you about writing?

JA:  I think that changes. Sometimes it's a simple matter of forcing myself to get off the comfy, comfy couch, stick my butt in my chair and be productive. Other times it's dealing with the pain of my dodgy back. At the moment, it's a matter of focus. My brain is swimming in stories and I want to write ALL THE THINGS. But you know what, I can't! No one can. So I need to train myself to pick a story and stick with it. The others will wait.


TQ:  You are stuck on a deserted island for a year. Which 5 novels/series would you want to have with you?

JA:  Okay, the first has got to be Tolkien, Lord of the Rings. I can reread these books over and over and never get bored of them. My Dad read them to me when I was a kid, and they are the reason I read, write, live and breathe speculative fiction.

Next, Robin Hobb -- Farseer, Liveship and Tawny Man Trilogies. Because they're awesome. Surely that needs no more explanation. Also, I'm sorry but I'm counting them as one! To balance all of those -- Rebecca, by Daphne de Maurier. Because it's beautiful, and oh-so creepy. Then, the Axis Trilogy by Sara Douglass. And Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo, to round it all off nicely.

Yep, that'd keep me happy for a while!


TQDebris combines Science Fiction and Fantasy. Are there any other genres or sub-genres in which you'd like to write?

JA:  I'd love to write a horror novel. I've written horror short fiction and continue to do so, but to sustain that sense of wrong, or creepy, or downright terrifying over a whole novel? That's gotta take serious skill. And I'd love to get there, one day.


TQ:  What's next?

JA:  Ah, well there could actually be a third book in the series, but I guess we'll just have to see how that goes...


TQ:  Thank you for joining us at The Qwillery.

JA:  Thank you for having me!

Winners x 6 - October 16, 2011

and the winners are....


Infidel (Bel Dame Apochrypha Volume 2) by Kameron Hurley

Winners x 6 - October 16, 2011

The Question:  What woman or women inspire you?

bmb80 who said...

I’ve been anxiously awaiting Infidel (which has been forever) since I wrapped up God’s War.

Love the question.

It takes a special woman to inspire others and what’s more special then a mother? She was the person who made me embrace odd things about myself that others (even grown ups) said was not normal—she called them my gifts.

She taught me to be inspired by the people who offer you something of value without asking for anything in return, such as the florist who felt that I, a total stranger, was in need of a simple hug and a rose because she thought I looked sad when I walked by her stand. She was right.

The nurse that prayed over my mother years ago when she was sick in the hospital and told me everything will be all right.

My sixth grade teacher who gave me hard time who I believed hated my guts but pushed me because she cared, and although I didn’t know it at the time, she’s one of the reasons I’m a writer today and changed my life forever.

This is living proof that those we consider ordinary are absolutely extraordinary.


Winners x 6 - October 16, 2011


Blood Rights (House of Comarré 1) by Kristen Painter

Winners x 6 - October 16, 2011

The Question:  Who is your favorite Urban Fantasy heroine or hero?

SeaLionMama who said...

My favorite heroine of all time is Cat (AKA Catherine, Kitten) from Jeanine Frost Night Huntress series. She is about as real as a half vampire can get. Not only is she relatable in regards to her insecurities, she kicks A$$! In every book Cat gets better and better as a person, but still has the inate ability to care about someone else other than herself. She would sacrifice herself and her feelings to make sure the people she loves (or actually anyone that is the underdog or needs help) are not harmed. Her love for humanity is what makes her the most deadly heroine in my eyes. She doesn’t forget what brought her to that point in her life and she takes what she has learned and grows from it… That makes a hero a hero…


Winners x 6 - October 16, 2011


Debris (The Veiled Worlds 1) by Jo Anderton

Winners x 6 - October 16, 2011

Chosen By Blood (Para-Ops 1) by Virna DePaul

Winners x 6 - October 16, 2011

Debris

Guest Blog by Jo Anderton & Giveaway - August 18, 2011


     Genre is a funny thing, isn't it? My days working in a bookshop taught me to both appreciate it, and rebel against it. Most of the time the categories on the back of the books made it easier to shelve a whole trolley's worth as quickly as possible -- particularly first thing in the morning and with only one coffee to help! But sometimes they were just wrong. Like they said thriller when really I knew I was holding a big fat fantasy tome, or (and less often, I have to admit) YA Fiction 8-12 on the back of a gruesome true crime.

     But things really got interesting when the lines between genres started to blur, and that's when my deep-seated need to rebel kicked in. What makes some books set in the future literature and some science fiction? What's more important in a supernatural crime thriller, the 'crime' or the 'supernatural', and how do you decide where to shelve it? Do you let the computer do all the work for you? Or do you make sure no one's watching, take that 'obviously belongs in science fiction' book out of the thriller section and place it lovingly in the genre where it belongs?

     Maybe it depends on the kind of day you've had, the amount of caffeine consumed, and just how invested you feel in that particular genre. Maybe it's all linked so your hidden agenda to single-handedly ensure that fantasy and science fiction get the recognition they deserve!

     Anyway... moving on. So, genre's a funny thing. But nothing felt as strange as seeing the genre debate applied to my own book.

     You see, as far as I was concerned, Debris was always fantasy. It has a hero with a special power, a motley band of companions, and creepy evil-doers with end of the world aspirations. Core fantasy values all. But, at the same time, it is a bit different. Tanyana might be a hero with a special power, but she also has to worry about paying the rent. She lives in a semi-industrialised world, with a class system based on skill, not birth. Almost everyone has the ability to use magic -- a pseudo-scientific magic involving the manipulation of subatomic particles -- and the few that don't are forced into low-paid work collecting the waste this produces.

     Still, you know, fantasy. Surely chatting to subatomic particles just isn't possible, and neither is threading them together to create grand and powerful structures, or seeing them as glowing beads of friendly light embedded in all matter -- no matter how far technology advances in the future. Ergo, magic. Fantasy. With a few hints of steampunk. And maybe even some cyberpunk... but that's in book two.

     By now I really should have realised that genre isn't that simple. At the very least my days of bookshop rebellion should have taught me that. But no, I hadn't learned, so I was more than a little surprised when my publisher started talking about science fiction instead of fantasy. First reaction: "OMG they've confused me with someone else and actually they don't want to publish my book at all!". Once I got over that little hiccup (meltdown) we realised it was more an issue of definitions, instead of horror stories involving manuscripts swapped at birth. I'd say 'magic' they'd say 'subatomic particle'; I'd say 'carriages' they'd say 'on giant invisible spider legs instead of wheels'; 'clockwork and gas pipes' vs 'futuristic city'. You get the idea.

     Genre was blurring again, but this time I'd drawn the lines, and it was difficult to watch them dissolve before my eyes. We've decided on 'manga-inspired science fantasy', which is a pretty good description, although I also like to include 'dark-fantasy steampunk-ish' whenever I can.

     I guess the point is, that along the way I learned to let go a little bit. Genre isn't only about the appropriate code printed on the back of a book. It's also in the eye of the beholder. And I was holding so tightly onto the way I saw my story, and the (not-so-neat) little box I had squeezed it into, that I couldn't understand that anyone else might see it differently. But you know what? They can. In fact, they will.

     And that's okay, because their view of Debris is not wrong at all, just different. Like some of those books, back in my old bookshop days, weren't categorised on the wrong place, just differently to the way I saw them.

     Some.

     Maybe.
