Review

"Get the book, you won't read another one like it!" - M. Burkhart

From the Author

The first five pages of Ferment took me five years to write, and the last 200 pages took me four months.

The critical moment that allowed the floodgates to open and this book to spring to life was when I put away my laptop and started writing with a pencil in cheap notebooks. Without a delete key, I found myself able to write between three and ten pages every morning before 8:00.

I had no idea what this book would be about when I started it, and I'm still not sure I know what it's about -- but as I continue to think about it I find myself increasingly excited about it.

I've been a technical writer for 20+ years, and I'm used to writing step-by-step instructions and clear explanations. I threw away all of that for Ferment, and I wrote in purposeful ignorance of facts and in tiny glimpses into the souls of characters instead. But, in spite of my best efforts to keep logical thought out of it, I think Ferment is mostly about processes. As I was writing it, I was thinking about the process of writing, the processes of making a living and a life, and the process of getting older that we're all going through while denying that we're really going through it -- until it becomes undeniable.

It's a fun book that deals with serious subjects. I didn't mean for the chapters to be so short (most chapters are 3 pages long) but when it came together like that I really liked the rhythm of it and the ease of reading it in small bursts.

I also drew pictures for each chapter, before I knew anything about drawing. Drawing the illustrations for the chapters inspired me to actually learn to draw, and I think the drawings in my next novel will be far more realistic.

I hope you enjoy reading Ferment.
