About Julian Soriano:
Julian started out as a visual artist. Since he was a child, he was always fasinated by fantasy characters and dreamed of creating his own. He felt visual art limited his ability to tell the stories he would often imagine and gave writing them a try.
His first pursuit at writing is a novelette named "Beautiful Despair". A dark themed collection featuring morally grey characters within his fantasy universe. The manifestation of the tales came from the idea that people are not good or evil. They are a combination of both and are shaped by events. His first full length novel "Daylights Affliction" was released shortly after and was inspired by the life cycle of the sun, greek myths , and eastern concepts of the afterlife. "Daylights Demise" the sequel is scheduled to be released in late April of 2021.
If you are a fan of Epic Fantasy that features an indepth magical system , progression in its application, and strong characters like D.K. Holmbergs "The Dark Ability" , delve into his series.
Julian lives in New Jersey without pets, and without snoring when he sleeps.

Tell us about your writing process.
I'm a plotter/outliner. I have every scene and detail mapped out before I begin. I love progression and hard magical systems so I plan out my characters growth in their abilities. I also sketch out character designs and sometimes hire concept artist to expand on my ideas. I usually only limit the concept art to the main character.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Yes I visualize myself in the character to get an emotional understanding and let my characters instincts take over.
What advice would you give other writers?
Stick to doing what you love.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
When I was young I always dreamed about being in the publishing industry. That childhood dream motivated me to self publish.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think the future of book publishing is bright due to the ability of an author not having to rely on a publishing deal to launch a book series. Authors have access to more resources than ever before to help them accomplish their goals.
What genres do you write?: Epic Fantasy
What formats are your books in?: eBook
