I have dodged the necessary creation of a site devoted solely to my writing like I owed the thing rent money. Periodic reminders that self-promotion remains a necessity of the craft ranks high as one of the many benefits of my Full Sail University Creative Writing Masters classes. Now that parameters have been set and deadlines loom, I find the task of crafting an online writing persona and presence to be engaging. Not as much as nailing that Act Three turning point, but what can compare with that, anyway?
So, a little about me. My name is Michael Sanborn, and I write fantasy. Not gaudy, flashy fantasy with sorcerers whipping day-glow blasts of magic energy and gigantic, flying reptiles igniting everything in sight but the more subtle supernatural occurrences that slip by the inattentive eye largely unnoticed. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a fan of traditional fantasy, but I prefer to make my home in the spaces in-between, the abandoned alcoves and avoided alleys where we humans clutch at the improbable and unlikely every day.
