Whispers from the Depths is a dark fantasy novel written by C.W. Briar.
Because this review is of a novel, a much longer piece than I usually cover, the review will be longer too. But I think there is a lot of awesome stuff to be learned from Briar’s work so it’ll definitely be worth it.
But first, my overall review.
The Girl Who Could See is a 324 page long novella written by Kara Swanson, co-author of Pearls of Merlydia.
I was very excited to read The Girl Who Could See. I had an idea very similar to the premise of this novella, and wanted to see how another writer would handle it.
It was a very entertaining read that I think we can learn a lot from, structure wise.
But first, my overall review.
Hannah Heath is an indie-published author who runs an amazing website, (name of website), that teaches writing and geeks out over all the nerdy story stuff a writer could want to read about.
I was a huge fan of Hanah’s blog long before I read Skies of Dripping Gold.
With Broken Pieces finally up on Amazon in both paperback and ebook formats, I am officially an Indie author.
It’s such an exciting thought. Knowing my book is out there for the world to see. Hoping it can reach the hearts of the people who need its message most.
But it has also shown me just how hard it is to get people interested in buying your book as an Indie author. And why book reviews are so helpful!
That’s why I’ve decided to review more of the books I read on Amazon and Goodreads. It’s the least I can do for a writer who shared a part of their soul with me. Not to mention it’s an easy way to help writers out.
The Broken Pieces blog tour continues with this awesome guest post by Melissa Chan, owner of Literary Book Gifts!
I have some incredible news. My first ever novella is finally up on Amazon for pre-order.
To celebrate, me and a few writer friends are going to be having a book launch tour. On it, you’ll find book spotlights and book reviews where you can hear all about Broken Pieces. Welcome to the first stop. :D
And at the end, I’ll be hosting an amazing giveaway!
Today Katelyn Buxton; Indie-Author, blogger, former archer, and all around awesome gal, is going to share some of the pitfalls she’s seen writers fall into while writing about archery, and ways that we can write about this topic more authentically.
How I Researched for Beyond Her Calling by Kellyn Roth
One of the things so prevalent in our broken world (and that should be more prevalent in our fictional worlds) is sickness. I should know, I’ve spent the last three years chronically ill, to the point where I almost died. (Thankfully I’m on the mend now.) - Sara Willoughby
You have to let your MC be a little villainous, as all people are.
If you or someone you know is suffering from chronic illness, read on to see how you can participate as my friend Sara shares all about it.
Everyone has a favorite Bible verse. It’s the special verse they turn to when they’re having a particularly trying day. Mine is actually a string of verses.
Reading about the Bible can be a dangerous endeavor. Not reading the actual Bible, which is the inspired Word of God, but reading other people's thoughts on the stories and topics found in the Bible.
This week another great blog comes to life here on the web, and I have the privilege of getting to introduce it along with its awesome authors.
In my last post, I talked about a series I planned where I would cover those tricky human emotions that have such a negative stigma in the church.
This weak we're focusing on fear.
I know this post is going up at a weird time, but a friend from YWW asked for help launching her new blog.
And since it also is focused on growing spiritually I thought that this was just the audience to introduce her to. :)
It may surprise you to learn that I no longer think that anger, on its own, is a sin.
New Years resolutions.
We've all had one. A promise to ourselves to be a better, nicer, healthier or more financially responsible person during the coming year than we were the year before.
And yet, a couple of Christmases ago I began to wonder…
What about the rest of Jesus’ life?
Thanks for visiting my site!
I am super excited to get to post the second entry in Journeys today. And it's doubly exciting to announce that the author of todays post is none other than MaryLu Tyndall.
Mrs. Tyndall is the bestselling author of the Legacy of the King's Pirates series (and others) and a huge fan of all things buccaneer.
Journeys is a blog dedicated to the stories of writers.
