Writing – As Explained by Firefly

The Overactive Imagination

Howdy!

Sorry for the radio silence recently. Short explanation is I’ve been super busy/lazy. 🙂 But I got the idea for this post at lunch the other day, so I figured I’d continue with the series that started with my Princess Bride posts. Using Firefly/90% of all the best Wash quotes. 🙂

Haven’t seen the Princess Bride posts yet? Check out Part 1, and Part 2.

Onward!

When your characters decide they want to do something else-

When you get too excited handing out character deaths-

When procrastination hits you hard-

Sometimes going back and reading your writing is like-

Sometimes worldbuilding is hard…

When the plot bunnies spiral out of control-

We all want that giant royalty check, but…

Trying to explain your brilliant story idea to someone. But words…

Reminiscing about that plot twist that readers hate you for-

So there you have it. 🙂 Did…

Into the Mind of Amy Brock McNew

A little flashback from last year. I loved doing this interview!

Faith & Fantasy Alliance

Spekkies, today we have author Amy Brock McNew with us! Get ready to delve into her mind.

Hi Amy!  What are you most looking forward to about attending this year’s conference?

Well, for one, Tosca Lee is going to be there. Hanging out with her is always a riot. The Nerf war is a highlight for me. We have some extraordinary faculty this year, so the classes are going to rock. Most of all, this year my husband and son are coming with me. I’m excited to introduce them to my tribe, and they’re stoked about learning more about the publishing world.

Book Review: Reconciliation by Amy Brock McNew

Thanks to Janeen for this kickin’ review!

Janeen Ippolito - Speculative Fiction Author

Some ghosts from the past refuse to stay dead.

Finally. Finally everything is coming together for Liz Brantley.

She’s marrying Ryland Vaughn, the man of her dreams. She’s embraced her calling and battles the minions of hell bent on her destruction. And she’s left her dark past far behind her.

Or so she thought.

A secret she holds close, stuffed down deep, surfaces at the wrong time for everyone in Liz’s life, leaving a trail of devastation. Left reeling, Liz wonders if she made a mistake, putting her trust in God, her guardian Arie, and Ryland.

And the demon Kade capitalizes on her shaken faith. With a vengeance.

Torn between her tortured past and the future she craves, Liz is desperate to defeat every demon that stands in her way.

Before all hell breaks loose and swallows her whole (from Amazon).

Another intense read from Amy Brock McNew…

Heart of a Hero

In the Reluctant Warrior Chronicles, I write about heroes and heroines who fight demons. But what makes them heroes? Is it the way they face down the enemy on the battlefield? Is it because they reach out to help those around them, or rescue those in untenable situations? Is it because they rally together to encourage... Continue Reading →
