Reviewer IndieView with Diamante Lavendar

Books Books Books

It is seductive to a writer to pump the story out and have it received by the public. But it is extremely important to take the extra time to set the book aside and come back later to re-assess the manuscript before publication.

BookView with Rusty Blackwood, author of Willow’s Walk


When all is said and done, I look at this novel and smile, for I truly am proud of what it has become, and the riveting story it tells.

IndieView with Sarah Anne Shockley, author of The Pain Companion


I write from a very genuine place, and my writing is about things that I have experienced on a deep level for myself. I am less interested in whatever the next hot topic is, and more interested in what is showing up in my life right now, and how it might be useful to others.

Empire's Daughter cover 380 px wide

I spent about nine months re-submitting to agents and other presses, but after several versions of the same rejection letter – basically they all said “Beautifully written, not commercial enough”, I chose to self-publish.

Reading doesn’t just provide the reader information, but the stories take the reader on a journey. I don’t think it’s a dying pastime, but the formats of reading (from paperback to digital) may change.

IndieView with LC Coyle, author of The Drakon


I remember reading so many YA novels and thinking, “What a goody-two-shoes! No way that would happen!” … This book is for all the girls who are tired of thinking there’s something ‘wrong’ with them because they don’t have the pure-as-driven-snow outlook that female YA heroines today so often seem to share.

5 Girls

I used to work in my girls’ school when they were in public school and most kids didn’t even read, parents didn’t make them read and some kids were in 5th grade and didn’t even know how to read!

BookView with Lauri Boris, author of A Sudden Gust of Gravity


I really enjoyed inviting him into this story and letting him tell his side of things, and he was one of the most forthcoming characters I’ve ever worked with. And adorable. If only he weren’t so fictional and I wasn’t old enough to be his…well, youthful aunt.
