Interview with D.C. Haenlien, Author of The Reginnaglar Ceremony

02 Nov 2022

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write The Reginnaglar Ceremony?

You know in many fantasies, how an evil conquering empire is always an antagonist? Right, I wanted to read a story about the evil empire, only it’s about how one of them rose to power and becomes more ruthless and cold-blooded in the process.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

Progression fantasy, and yes, it is my favorite genre.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

Legends & Lattes and NieR Automata.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

I have a soft spot for any scene involving cooking, but favorite would have to be the knighting scene at the end of the story. The vows reflect the side characters relationship with the main character in a way that I love.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

Does heightened productivity after midnight count?

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

Not particularly. If I had to force one, write what you enjoy?

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

Regret is forever.
