Swoon Author Chani Lynn Feener: Character Breakdown

When I sat down to write the very first chapter in Amid Stars and Darkness, book one in the Xenith trilogy, I had two known characters in mind: Delaney and Ruckus.

Swoon Author Chani Lynn Feener's Editing Update: Closing Out a Chapter

But you know what they say about all good things, so, without … Read More

Swoon Author Chani Lynn Feener: The Extremely Glamorous and Exciting Life of a Writer

Everyone in my life pretty much knows by now not to bother me when I’m writing a first draft. Partly because I’m so engrossed in the world and characters I’m creating that I hardly notice people who are real and not fictional, but also partly due to the fact that I’m… seriously boring during this time. Like, seriously boring.Typically, my … Read More
