R. J Dyson | FAQ

What is the Return of the Guide Series about? The world is upside down. Several generations have passed since the global reset spurred on by the Anti-Libertas movement. On Compound 40 two students are awakened by a mysterious glow, an orb that guides them to discover the truth. But when Principal Chicanery finds out, things begin to get a little out of hand...


Ultimately, it's an amalgamation of How the Irish Saved Civilization, 1984, and the Book of Acts, only in the future. History rhymes, doesn't it?

How many books will there be in the ROTG Series? I'm scheduled to wrap up the third book by Christmas 2022...after that, we'll see where the glow ignites.

What do you do when you're not writing? Good question. I eat. Sleep. Spend lots of time with my wife and kids. Oh, and I'm a Life Coach for Creatives through Creativista Coaching (link below). Oh and I help layout and design other projects through Absolutely Unprofessional (link below). What do you do when you're not writing?

Do you have any pets? We have stray neighborhood cats that think they own our garden beds. Does that count? I think you mean to say "pests" not "pets."

A lot of what you write and reference is spiritual, why is that? Another good question! I believe Jesus is who he modeled and claimed to be. Seems to me that has an all-encompassing impact on everything heart, mind, body, and soul. Almost like the glow dwells in the flesh.

Do you host workshops? Sure. Keep an eye out at conferences where I spend time coaching attendees through short sessions in the GROW model. Or workshops on Creative Habits or Storyline.

Do you have free resources for developing creative habits for beginners? Yes! Right HERE! In fact, these aren't just for beginners. They're for anyone looking for the clarity, confidence, and courage to grow forward!

When were you born? Hahaha.

Do you have a degree in coaching or writing? Nope. I have a degree in Biblical Studies. I like to learn, so I continue to study through an international coaching organization. I also read, take classes on, and learn about the writing process from many current authors, editors, and professors. Does that count?

Do you like what you do? No. I really like what I'm blessed to be a part of!

If I email you, will you get back to me? I'll do my very best to respond. Unfortunately I can't guarantee it.
