Book Description:

A multi-genre mash-up that combines elements of supernatural suspense, crime, horror, romance, and more. The Onyx Webb series follows the unusual life of Onyx Webb along with a central group of characters in various locations and times. The billionaire Mulvaney family, piano prodigy Juniper Cole and her brother Quinn, paranormal show hosts Cryer and Fudge, and a few others make up the core of the series.

Written like a book version of a supernatural soap opera, each character’s story moves forward with most every episode. It may appear that the characters are entirely unrelated and yet episode by episode, the connections will become clearer. Like being an inch away from a spider web, with each book, the web will move further and further away revealing the full story of every character and most importantly, the stunning conclusion for Onyx Webb herself.

About the Authors:

Richard Fenton & Andrea Waltz are best known as the authors of Go for No! (which hit #1 on Amazon’s Sales & Selling list and has remained in the Top 10 for the last five years.) They are also professional speakers who speak internationally to audiences on how to overcome fear of failure and rejection. 

Although all of their business books are fables, the Onyx Webb series is their first serious dive into fiction.

But Richard and Andrea have been in love with creating stories together since they met almost twenty years ago and even spent some time in Hollywood writing screenplays, being represented by the producer of Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

February 26 Interview with Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz

Do you write every day?
Either writing or plotting. We spend a lot of time planning our books – the episodes and all the scenes in the episode. We have such an intense writing schedule that there are periods that require a scene each day. We also have to make time for our speaking business but luckily, at least with writing, you can write at three in the morning. You can’t speak to audiences at three in the morning.  

What is your writing schedule like?
Richard takes the lead on writing out the actual scenes once we have the episode entirely plotted and we know what happens in each scene. After that, Andrea takes over and does a ‘deep’ edit. That is a nice way of saying she deletes a lot of stuff from extra words and sometimes entire sections in a scene.

Where do you write?
We work from home so we write from home – our place is kind of loft style, it’s very open so it’s kind of an office/living room area.

Is there a specific ritualistic thing you do during your writing time?
We have very little in terms of rituals. The closest thing is probably that when Richard is in a good flow, he will be up at all hours of the day. Up at three in the morning, a mid-day nap, more writing, an afternoon nap, etc. 

Do you have any advice for budding writers?

If you want to write, you must put in the time. It is a joyous process for people who like to write but truthfully, it is also work. It is not easy. If you want to write, you can’t wait. Like having kids, you will never have all the time, money and freedom you think you need to write, so you might as well start now.
