So it's a bit different this time around.
I'm okay with that. I'll even make this a fairly short post because, you know, writing a novel.
First, of course a quick spamming. SEVEN FORGES finally comes out in the US on Tuesday. You know, tomorrow. Naturally I would love for you to buy a hundred copies for all of you friends and two for yourself, but in this case I'm just pointing out that if you are in the Atlanta area and feel like stopping by, the official release event will be on Wednesday (You know, the day AFTER tomorrow) from 6-7:30 PM at Dr.No's comics in Marietta.
Now that that's out of the way, my question for the readers:
Which part or parts are the most important when it comes to a book for you and why? Characters? Plot? Storytelling? Narrative Voice?
Bonus question: How much detail do you like in descriptions?
There. See? A short post.

A simple question?
Posted by James A. Moore
I write fiction, a little of everything and a lot of horror. I've written novels, comic books, roleplaying game supplements, short stories, novellas and oodles of essays on whatever strikes my fancy. That might change depending on my mood and the publishing industry. Things are getting stranger and stranger in the wonderful world of publishing and that means I get to have fun sorting through the chaos (with all the other writer-types). I have a website. This isn't it. This is where you can likely expect me to talk about upcoming projects and occasionally expect a rant or two. Not too many rants. Those take a lot of energy. In addition to writing I work as a barista, because I still haven't decided to quit my day job. Opinions are always welcome.
