Describing Under The Darkened Moon’s Style

Posted by Mathias in "Dark Moon", Form and Style, Projects

A friend proofing my novel Under the Darkened Moon, asked me to describe my philosophy behind the book and the way I have it structured. He was uncertain what style the book was going for. I said it was fairly simple. The book was written to be read like one smokes a fine cigar. Obviously confused, I informed my friend that fine cigars change their flavor subtly from start to finish. Under the Darkened Moon does the same thing. It starts off as fantasy/mystery, the it morphs into fantasy/romance, then into fantasy/action and then climaxes as a hodgepodge of all three.

That sort of subtle change throughout the course of the story may not interest some people. But it interests me and that is why I wrote it that way.
