L.T. Vargus has a new book coming out in less than a month, but there’s something you should know first.
See, the author L.T. Vargus is two people. Well, it was two people. Now it is one person. But let’s start at the beginning.
A writing team – a dynamic duo consisting of one woman and one man – toiled over the novel Casting Shadows Everywhere some time ago, releasing it in mid-2013. At the time it seemed wise to release the book under one name. The duo figured it would make branding and marketing simpler – promote one name, one blog, one twitter account, and so on, instead of two. As time passed, however, it became clear that there was no advantage to this strategy, and not only was there no advantage, it made blogging and tweeting and engaging with fans a little less personal, the point of view at times growing a little unclear.
So here were are. Division day. L.T. Vargus is about to split in two, but don’t worry. Like a nightcrawler, the two severed pieces will keep wriggling and be fine.
So now we have two authors instead of one: L.T. Vargus and Tim McBain. If you read Casting Shadows Everywhere or our tweets, blog posts, and interviews, you already know both of us. But now you will know both of us better.
We will continue to work together, and our next release will be out in about a month. The exact date and more details will be available soon.
