We've come to the end of the month and my first author spotlight. I've enjoyed learning more about this up and coming indie author and her wonderful work in the fantasy realm. I hope this interview and series of book reviews has encouraged you to give her work a try. Read on for the last book review and the conclusion to the author spotlight interview...
Unlike many of my fellow authors who would probably jump at the chance to have their books turned into movies, I sincerely hope there is never a need for me to do that with mine. My world is meant for imagination of the individual, not for interpretation to the masses. If you don't want to read my book and imagine it yourself, then in my opinion, you're losing out. I feel that way about most books that have been made into movies. LOTR, for instance made for a great film, but as much hard work as they put into it, they still had to cut characters and scenes that enriched the tale in many ways. Those who refuse to read the daunting tome will forever be missing out.
Anyway, here's my cast.
This set of responses proved to be more fun than work. I particularly enjoyed creating a cast for my book, though I hope my books are /never/ turned into any form of movie or TV series. <sigh> I just want them to stay in book format. There's no way the story could be told well, and certainly not in a way I agree with from what I've experienced in my lifetime.
Welcome back to the third session of my interview with indie author Elizabeth D. Marie. We've been discussing her writing with a focus on her newest series of fairy tale retellings: the "Crown of Stars" series. Today, I'm highlighting book three in the series, "Finding Mera."
Welcome back for round two of the Love Your Novel writing challenge responses. I'm really enjoying the challenge presented by these prompts. Days 12 and 13 proved to be quite interesting this past week. Read on to check out my responses.
Today, I'm sharing my book review of "Chasing Cinders" by Elizabeth D. Marie. I read it twice and was able to write a better review after the second reading. Also, join me once again as I continue my interview with this hard-working indie author. We're discussing her writing with a focus on her most recent books, the "Crown of Stars" series of which "Chasing Cinders" is the second book.
Oh, no! Not another challenge! Yep, another challenge piqued my interest. The Love Your Novel writing challenge runs through February and I thought I'd use it to keep up motivation for making my current WIP the best it can be. Read on to see the first week's responses.
How exciting! I'm doing my first author interview this month with Elizabeth D. Marie. She's one of my new favorite authors. Her 'Crown of Stars' series features fantastic retellings of classic fairy tales. I loved them so much I wanted to be certain other readers get the chance to give them a try. Read on to see my short book review of Saving Beauty (which might be my favorite up to this point) and see part one of my interview with Elizabeth, the author of these wonderful books.
When it comes to the copyright on your work, you automatically own all the rights. When someone tells you, "Hey, you should copyright that," what they really mean is you need to register your work with the U.S. Copyright Office (in the US, obviously. Other countries have their own rules and offices for this.) You own the rights to your work when you create it. But when you register your work, this adds a small layer of protection for you. However, the story doesn't really end there. Read on to find out a little more on the topic...
I did it! I finally made it to the last day of the two challenges. I'm so glad I stuck with it and met the goals I set for myself. And if it helped someone else, then I'm really glad I decided to share my challenge with others.
Read on to see my last two challenge responses.
