    About "Matthew O. Duncan"

    1. Matthew O. Duncan

      Author s Bio In my own words On my first date with Carleesa, she asked me what I liked to do for fun I told her that I liked to write stories She asked me to tell her one and as I recited the basics of one of my tales she listened with great interested and became my first real fan A year and half later we were married.Writing had never been a real money maker for me, of an escape and a dream of one day having a million people love my work and seeing my stories on the big screen starring Hollywood s best Yet life gets in the way I had won a number of awards for writing, mostly the plays I created while in school, but opportunities to produce plays or print short stories became difficult to pursue as we started a family and my career in business management progressed up the ladder of middle class success.Yet life rarely goes the way we plan When the recession hit, I found myself out of work, burning through our savings and at risk of losing our home to foreclosure To say I was at a low point would be an understatement That year, on my birthday, Carleesa goes out and buys me a copy of The Writer s Market A book I used to buy myself every year when I was trying to sell my work She gave it to me with a message I love you No matter how bad things get, I never want you to give up on your dreams That was the moment that renewed my spirit and gave me inspiration to become a real professional writer.There was a story I had been kicking around in the back of my mind for a few years An idea for a screenplay I wanted to get it out on paper, but I wasn t sure how to start The idea was not much than a couple of characters, a few incidents, and an incomplete plot I needed to outline it first before I could write it out So I decided to do it as a short story first For some reason, I had this odd phrase in the forefront of my mind that I felt I should use In the light of darkness, silence is king I don t know why, other than it was a random thought that sounded interesting So I put it down on paper and then justified it That created the first moments, which became the first scene, which became the first chapter After a couple of weeks, I had 44 pages, three chapters and the beginning of a novel At that point, I gave up on the screenplay idea, not because I didn t think it would make a great movie, I still think it would be fantastic on the big screen, but because I was loving writing it as a novel Scriptwriting can be very limiting You have to leave a lot of room for the director, designers and actors to bring their own art to the craft, but a novel is all the writer You get to paint the entire picture, and no one looks over your shoulder to tell you to do something different, at least not on the first draft Yet you do have to deal with editors, but they only get it after you get your entire story on paper from beginning to end and then when they give you their notes, you get to be the one to decide what changes and what stays In 2014 I was ready to publish my first novel, but by then most legitimate publishers were not taking on very many new writers and those who were only took manuscripts represented by agents I tried to get an agent, but I couldn t find one that was taking on any new writers in science fiction or fantasy I was prepared to deal with rejection but didn t realize how difficult it was going to be to just to get someone to look at my work The few publishers who were interested in working with me would only do so if I paid them for editing, art, marketing, and distribution, on top of giving them the rights to my work and the lion s share of the royalties In my research, I met a lot of writers online who were self publishing because it gave them control over how much they spent and they got to keep the rights and royalties There was an on demand publisher I had work with before when I had published some books on theater and
