The Silver Elves understand the world as a magical or miraculous phenomena, and that all beings, by pursuing their own true path, will become whomever they truly desire to be. The Elven Way is the spiritual Path of the Elves. It is not a religion. While all elves are free to pursue whatever spiritual path they desire, or not as the case may be, these elves are magicians and follow no particular religious dogma. The Elven Way promotes the principles of Fairness, that is to say both Justice, Elegance and Equal Opportunity and Courtesy that is respectful in its interactions and attitude toward all beings, great or small. They understand the world as a magical or miraculous phenomena, and that all beings, by pursuing their own true path, will become whomever they truly desire to be. The path of the Silver Elves is that of Love and Magic and they share the elven way with all sincerely interested individuals.

What inspires you to write?
We are inspired to write to assist the needs of others to understand the realms of magic and faery. We also have an inner drive to express our own experiences and reflect our personal quest to manifest faery/elven magic on the earth.
Tell us about your writing process.
We are a bit of both outliners and seat of our pants writers. We generally settle upon a loose outline and begin filling it in as we are inspired to do so. We also write whenever we have a general idea and often it fits somewhere in our works. We write approximately 5 hours every day.
What advice would you give other writers?
We would say to others writing to write first then critique later. Just keep writing and do not judge your writing until the time comes to truly edit your work. Also, stick to your passion and believe in your inspirations.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
We decided to publish through Createspace because we like the flexibility and freedom it gives the authors. And we support POD to save the trees!
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
We are sure that more and more people will publish through POD and Kindle versions as well. We personally like books we can hold and treasure on our bookshelves.
