Back Story: When the Sky Falls l Joseph Bendoski

People Want More than just Stories

If you’re the kind of person who read my book and now has gone digging through the internet to find out more, to see if buried deep beyond the first three pages of Google you can find something else I’ve done, something else I’ve written then it has brought you here. I assume a few things about you; one you enjoy research, because you had to do some to find this. Two, that you love to get more than just a story from the things you read. You want stories that changed the way you see the world, the way you understand, stories that open your mind through science and history. That is my favorite kind of story, but I find they are just too far and few to satisfy me, so I’ve started to write my own.

What I didn’t write about Sky Fall Events

This idea is best explained in the creation of the chapter headings in the first place. As I began to
write the story, I realized that there was just too much to explain to fully present the idea of a Sky Fall Event. It was an ocean of exposition. I fit as much into the story as I could, but then I created the headings as a way to provide even more information for the readers, and I could write in a way that didn’t have to relate to the narrative directly. The headings are matched to chapters, or set to come after certain chapters as a way to dive deeper into ideas and explain more history and science. But as for the question at hand.
There is a lot that was left out. I sifted through for the very best of history and science, but there are only so many chapters in the book. The missing pieces will be revealed in the sequel and prequel that I’m working on right now.
As stated in the book, when the series is finished I will compile and write The Nature of Sky Fall Events. The headings have done more than that though, they’ve changed the way I write. I think I will make it a permanent part of my style to use science, and historical headings to support the ideas I write about.

What I want to Ask the Reader

What did you think of the idea of ‘Sky Fall Events’, and the presentation of persuasion in the media in general? Will it change the way you watch the news or read news posts and papers?

I feel my greatest weakness is my characters. What would you do to make them better? More appealing, more memorable, more relatable?

In writing my own post, I wonder what questions I would ask and author like myself if I were to meet them. The first is “what did you leave out?”

About the Author

Joe Bendoski studied psychology in college and was fascinated by all the insights it provided into human behavior, only to realize most the information never reach people, and when it did, rarely was it in a form that allowed for practical application. He started writing non-fiction, but soon came to understand how few people read that genre and began the difficult transition into fiction writing. His non-fiction works include; the Chemistry of Attraction and the Language of Emotion. 

He worked as the head writer for the television show ‘Saved by Grace.’ After being frustrated with comments like "make this scene cheaper," "What's my motivation?", and "Do we need this scene?" he decided to go in to literature.

His latest book is the thriller/espionage/conspiracy/historical novel, When the Sky Falls.
