Award Winning Author V. Lakshman on Your Book Your Brand Your Business

After an unplanned 30-day hiatus, I’m thrilled to welcome award Winning Author V. Lakshman on Your Book Your Brand Your Business, Monday November 5 at 5 PM Eastern. If you enjoy science fiction and fantasy, you are going to love this episode!

Here’s a bit about this multi-talented author from his website MythbornMedia.com:

V. Lakshman grew up in Bangkok, Thailand, where he first discovered his love of the martial arts, mythological heroes, and exotic lands, all of which influenced the development of characters and the world in his debut fantasy series, Mythborn – Fate of the Sovereign

When he was nine, his father took him to a martial arts exhibition, and his life was changed forever. He spent the next forty years mastering the arts of hand-to-hand, grappling, and weapons combat. His dedication to the martial arts and thousands of combat hours fighting opponents across three continents helped shape the authenticity of the martial philosophy and realistic fighting found throughout the Mythborn series.

As a young man, V. also became fascinated with popular role-playing games such as, Dungeons & Dragons, RuneQuest, Travellerand Champions. Much of his high school and college time was spent playing games with friends and dreaming up new worlds within which to adventure. His mind was filled with forgotten worlds, mythical creatures, and dreaming of ages where adventure awaited those daring enough to try.

In 1982, V. joined Bethesda Softworks as an Executive Producer and Lead Designer, with a vision to create a new and exciting digital role-playing game system. This resulted in the creation of, The Elder Scrolls franchise, re-envisioning the fantasy role playing genre and redefining its reach and popularity. The Elder Scrolls and its subsequent iterations like Skyrim, quickly became and remains the world’s definitive role-playing games, enjoyed by hundreds of millions of fans.

Over the next few decades VJ pursued his interest in video game design and is responsible for over eighty-five well known digital entertainment properties, which have garnered over $1B in lifetime sales.

These rich and immersive life experiences led to his conception and authorship of a rich and exciting new fantasy series known as Mythborn, a world where dreams become reality. While completing the Mythborn saga, VJ is working diligently on the design for an ground-breaking new interactive video game, a television pilot, and a graphic novel, all to complement the world of Mythborn and the characters within.

His educational experience includes graduation from George Washington University and from the Harvard Business School’s elite General Manager Program.  His martial arts experience includes extensive training in karate, close combat grappling, kendo, a type of traditional Japanese swordsmanship.

Mythborn Media is a division of Dawn’s Light Media and is in negotiations for a Motion Picture Film Series. Production is to begin later this year with release sometime in 2019.

We look forward to answering your questions in the chat room and hope you’ll tune in on Monday, November 5 at 5 PM Eastern!
