Interview with Jeffrey L. Kohanek, Author of Fate of Wizardoms Boxed Set
21 Apr 2020
What can you tell us about your new release, Fate of Wizardoms Boxed Set?
Fate of Wizardoms is an epic fantasy series with a plot that twists beloved genre tropes in new ways. Set in a world where wizards rule, the ambitious vie for thrones able to grant the power of a god. When a power-hungry wizard lord seeks to expand his rule, he sends his world into chaos. Races of old return and creatures of legend stalk the land.
Think of it as a fast-paced mashup of Wheel of Time meets Game of Thrones, centered around a cast of reluctant heroes caught in the middle of world-altering events.
This boxed set includes the first three books from the six-book series.
What books are currently on your nightstand?
I have migrated to eBooks and hundreds of fantasy novels currently fill my Kindle. I am currently reading a series written by Lindsay Buroker.
What advice would you give your teenage self?
The same advice I give when speaking to high school classrooms: It’s fine to take the responsible career path, but it doesn’t mean you need to give up on your dreams. I waited two decades after college before I began writing again, rekindling my dream of storytelling. I could have done so much sooner.
If you had an extra hour each day, how would you spend it?
Likely writing or some other author-related activity. It seems like I have far more ideas and tasks on that front than time to accomplish them all. However, I make a point to spend time with my family and friends whenever possible.
What makes your world go round? Why does it bring you joy?
Connections to the people in my life is important to me. Be it friends, family, or my children, touching the lives of others is the reason we are on this planet. This includes my readers, although that interaction is usually limited to Facebook or email.
What scene in Fate of Wizardoms Boxed Set was your favorite to write?
I enjoy crafting outrageous scenes mixing humor, action, and intrigue. One such chapter comes on the first book when Jace, a clever rogue of a thief, dresses like a woman in order to seduce and rob a powerful wizard who is hosting a ball at his castle. Things don’t go as planned, but Jace is resourceful and finds a way to make it work while leaving said wizard naked and tied to his bed for his party guests to discover.
