via Book Review: Against All Odds Sara Beth Williams just did a great review of my novel, Against All Odds. Thank you, Sara, and I look forward to doing the same for you!
Writers have got to be some of the craziest people (delightfully crazy) to be friends with! I'm blessed (yes, I mean that) with around a dozen or more crazy writer friends, most of whom I congregate with on a regular basis. I've been a part of some weirdest conversations--you just don't know!
Recently, I got an interview on New Book Central!
I love to find hope in hopeless places. I think that became the main goal of writing this pirate story. Pirates were a nasty sort. I mean, really, they were quite terrible! I just kind of kept playing in my mind, “Yeah, but what if they weren’t all like that?”
Unanchored is a tale told with passion and guts and rawness that teens can appreciate, and parents will appreciate the cleanliness and moral elements. Really, though technically a young adult novel, it's a great read for all ages, adults included.
It's difficult to understate the great things about this book. It definitely reads the way it should from the perspective of a thirteen year old boy, making no secret of his feelings of awkwardness and self-consciousness. The descriptions are straightforward as those of a kid of his age, and they demonstrate well his personality and keen observance.
High school. A time of fun and youth. And one of regret for most people. In Katy Eeten's debut novel, Blast From Her Past, former high school mates, Sydney Hampson and Grant Williams, meet up again. They were at opposite ends of the social spectrum back then, and Sydney's determined to keep them that way, while Grant tries to break through those barriers.
All along this path, I've learned a lot of lessons, some big and all-encompassing and others small and in the details. These nuggets may not seem all that earth-shattering, and you've probably heard them other places, but they're important and bear repeating. I'm going to limit this to just a handful since while I could write a book about it, we don't have that kind of space here. So, without further ado, here are some important things I learned on my crazy journey.
Today I’d like to share five things I learned after signing a contract with my publisher, Anaiah Press. It’s been a mostly encouraging, sometimes draining, always educational experience and I’m thankful for the opportunity to publish my Christian romance, Blast From Her Past.
First and foremost, thank you for having me! I’m happy to be here. As you’ve probably gathered, my name is Jennifer Pierce and I’m the author of Hidden Danger. Let me tell you a little about this story.
