Yes! At least in my way of looking at the world. I’ve been pushing myself to do a much needed blog post, but I’ve been wiped out from steadily working on updating my website–yet again!, revising Dead Moon Awakens and downloading it to Amazon and Smashwords–yet again!, marketing my book<< MORE >>
I just finished reading "Rootless" by Chris Howard. (I know, I was supposed to do "The Raven Boys" by Maggie Stiefvater next, but I received both books at the same time and read "Rootless" first.)
Chris Howard places you into his main character's harsh, destitute world quickly and soundly, and doesn't let you leave until the last page - even then, it's difficult to cut yourself loose. I agonized over some of the scenes, sitting on the edge of my couch hoping for the best for several of the characters in this novel, especially his main character, Banyan. (I don't want to give anything away, so that's all I can say.)
From a writer's point of view, I thought Chris Howard delivered a great first person of his main character. I never left Banyan's head, and there were time's when I wished I could have - when I didn't want to experience what he was experiencing or see what he was seeing.
Okay, the next book chat will be on "The Raven Boys." This will probably be the last book chat because I'm revamping my website and blog. There are too many other great places to go to learn and chat about teen and young adult books; I'll figure out how to link you to some. But, as promised, I'm working up a book giveaway contest for the books I've previously chatted about. I'll let you know about it as soon as I can.
In the meantime, here is a coupon to purchase my newly released eBook, Dead Moon Awakens from Smashwords. Go to the link below and enter the code: ZW93K and you'll get the eBook for $.99 (99 cents). This coupon is good only until July 5, 2013. (By the way, Smashwords has all the major formats for different readers.)
