Welcome to Windemere

A genuine, heartfelt welcome to everyone who has wandered over to my corner of the internet.  I am Charles Edward Yallowitz and this is my author blog/website.  It is here that I will be posting sections of my books, personal musings, updates for future products, and updates for available products.  Here you can get a taste of the world that I have created and then move on to the e-book store of your choice to continue your journey into my realm.

A more serious origin for me is that I have always wanted to be a writer.  To be more specific, I always wanted to be a storyteller.  I am happiest when I am entertaining people with the stories that are in my head.  When I went to college, it was to learn how to be an author.  I went to classes and did the good student thing, but this is also where Windemere came into being.  I joined a Dungeons & Dragons game where I created Luke Callindor and eventually got the idea of turning these adventures into a series.  All the other players gave me their blessings and then the game promptly died before we had any conclusions to the story.  Yet, the seed was planted and I began testing story characters in other games, which allowed Windemere to grow into this amazing fictional world.  Even today, I am surprised how this world has grown by absorbing my interests and knowledge.

This is where my path has taken me to.  I am on the verge of publishing the first three books of Legends of Windemere, which will introduce readers to the world.  As I said, I love telling a good story, so my focus is almost entirely on character evolution and character relations.  So, I use more dialog and character reactions than other fantasy-based stories.  I have been told many times that reading my stories is like reading a movie, which these people assure me is a good thing.

More of my style, world, and characters will be discussed in detail throughout the posts on this site.  As for a posting schedule, here it is:

Monday- Post a section of one of my books.  These will be posted in order, so Legends of Windemere: Beginning of a Hero Prologue Part 1 will be appearing on Monday.

Wednesday-  A personal blog post that gives you insight into my mind.  This can be my thoughts on something in the writing world, personal philosophies, or if a current event perks and peaks my interest.  Also, if (down the road) I get a fan question that fits into this category, it will turn up here.

Friday-  Updates on what I am working on and stories about how certain characters or places came to be.  If I get a lot of fan questions (again, down the road) then I’ll be posting a Youtube Video where I answer them personally.  Unfortunately, this means people would have to look at my ugly mug, but why should my wife be the only one to suffer.

So, again I give a friendly hello to everyone who enters and hope you enjoy the site when I start the book postings on Monday.

'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  3. Did you ever do a Youtube video answering questions Charles? Is that something that is still on the cards? It seems like an interesting idea.

    • I’ve thought about it, but I never had enough questions to do much. I also haven’t figured out where the charger for my digital camcorder went. I’m still putting that on a future project status.
