New Interview

(Monthly Updates: At the end of every month, I’ll share project or personal updates.)

The Writer’s Workout picks my brain in an Indie Author Sunday interview! How would you have answered the questions?

Book Giveaway: Night Plague

Night Plague Giveaway on GoodreadsAs an aside, if anyone is interested in my novel, Night Plague, I’m currently running a giveaway on Goodreads. Until 05/15/15, Goodreads members can enter for a chance to win one of ten free paperback copies. I’m also experimenting with the self-serve advertising system Goodreads offers.

Yeah, this post is a shameless plug. But to add a little more substance to it, I will post an update after the giveaway ends – regarding what sort of results I’ve seen from these features on Goodreads – for any other authors out there who might want to try them.


Hey there,
I’m Rowan Rook, a novelist and novice game designer. My first novel, Night Plague, was published by Severed Press back in August 2014, and I’m currently working on a several new projects, including the partially released serial novel, Living Ageless. In addition, I also dabble with fanfiction, poetry, and anything else that can tell a story. While I have separate websites focused on my novels and my game projects, I wanted a more informal environment to interact with readers and gamers, other writers, and to share and discuss my own experiences, and so I decided to give blogging a go.

With posts on an approximately twice-per-week basis, this blog will cover a variety of topics, including:

  • Upcoming books/projects and their progress
  • Previews and snippets of upcoming novels
  • Character bios and interviews
  • Poetry
  • Photographs
  • Discussions of the writing craft
  • Tips on writing, editing, and outlining
  • Tips on fanfiction and other fun projects
  • RPG Maker tutorials and tips
  • Discussions and tips on NaNoWriMo and other similar events
  • Helpful writing and game design tools
  • Reviews and recommendations of books, games, etc
  • And more!

I hope you enjoy your stay, and find the posts here fun and helpful. If there is a topic you’d like to see covered, feel free to let me know, and feel free to join the discussions with comments or questions!
