Yes, we all know the beginning, middle, and end, but what is the throbbing heart of the story?  Some lean toward characters. Others lean toward plot. Some are sure the theme is why a story is provocative. I find that the answer is in alchemy. The mixture of every story element makes the thing sing as a whole. This undefinable balancing act is different for every work and makes all the difference.

The Four Winds!

 Cece Barlow, has been up to all kinds of mischief. I want to check out my newest work, please follow the link: The Four Winds: Regalia of Power   . This YA fantasy serial will appeal to readers who love speculative fiction/historical mashups! Oh, and dragons, magic, ether, the Salt City, caravans, the Great Library of Constantinople, powerful magicians of Egypt...definitely not traditional Western fantasy.  

I wrote this serial with cool friends: Christopher Cheng, Chris Eboch, and Louise Spiegler!

Whoo who!
