Join us as we talk with Jacob Cooper, author of the Dying Lands Chronicles. Jacob will share his experiences writing his first novel, working with David Farland and how he got his start in the world of audiobooks!
Jacob Cooper is an award-winning #1 bestselling author of The Dying Lands Chronicle. He writes fantasy and epic fantasy books. His first effort, Moon Monsters, was written when he faked sickness one day in first grade to stay home and write. This book received the acclaim of his parents and sits in a black 3-ringed binder somewhere in their basement.
The Dying Lands Chronicle is a planned trilogy in the epic fantasy genre. Book 1, Circle of Reign, marks Jacob's first major effort on the fiction side of writing and won Gold for Best Fantasy in the international 2015 IPPY Awards. Circle of Reign is also a #1 Bestseller on Amazon and Audible for the Epic Fantasy and Sci-fi/Fantasy genres. The highly-rated prelude to the DLC, Altar of Influence: The Orsarian War, has also been released. Two short stories, The Red Grove and Remnants and Shadows, augment the two full-length novels respectively. Book 2 in the series, Song of Night, is expected to be released in 2016.
Aside from writing, Jacob is an accomplished percussionist, pianist, and composer. He enjoys power sports on land and water, as well as spending time with his family.
