Join authors David Wragg, Sebastien de Castell, J.S. Dewes, Marina J. Lostetter and Julia Vee for another FanFiAddict author roundtable! During the discussion, these five talented authors share their takes on CHARACTER THROUGH DIALOGUE, unpacking the ways in which dialogue and character are intertwined, how to best convey a character through the words they speak, what goes said versus unsaid, making dialogue sound unique to each character and more.
Activation Degradation is well-known author Marina J. Lostetter’s latest published novel, and I found it to be a really interesting story. Dubbed as “The Murderbot Diaries makes first contact…”, I only found a tertiary connection to the famous cyborg. Honestly, though, it does not need the comparison, as the story is able to stand on its own two feet.
The Helm of Midnight is the first in Marina Lostetter’s The Five Penalties Series, and the author’s first fantasy novel, according to her bio in the back of the book. I love the premise of this book, and, while in the end it did not keep my interest as much as I had hoped, Lostetter definitely showed off her writing chops.
