The Road less Traveled

The Road less Traveled

Why the picture of a green field leading up to the unforgiving mountain? Well I think this symbolizes the path most new authors must travel.

We start at the green field, we have an idea that just will not stay put in our head. The idea slowly develops as we walk in the green field, slowing here and there to take in the beauty of what we are creating, what we are giving life to through our words.

As we put the final words to the page, as we reach the foothills the doubts start to gather. Will anyone want to read this? Do I really want to put myself out there as an author? Can I climb this mountain?

Then with some trepidation we take those first steps onto the mountainside. We ask family and friends (if we have any left) to read our work. When the response is positive we wonder if they are being honest or just trying to not hurt our feelings. The mountain is looking steeper all the time.

Those of us who are lucky stumble across a Mountain Guide. Someone who has already climbed the mountain and has seen the sunrise from the summit. We make connections with other authors sometimes in online groups like Writers750 on LinkedIn. Sometimes at conferences and author workshops. With the Mountain Guide we confidently step onto the path that leads straight up the mountain.

The author interviews I am honored to include here, represent the best of the Mountain Guides. These authors are not ashamed to let us see what it has taken for them to reach the summit. Giving hope to those who are still on the green fields and even those of us who have only dreamed of taking that first step…

    JR: Love your cover Art. All your page is missing are a few Corona’s. Local color, I’m sure you agree. I’ll be downloading Shadow Force next, really ready for a little R&R reading, instead of typing!

    New Review For Shadow Force Episode 1

    By Leigh K. Hunt
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I was swept up in this episodic book over the weekend, and I have to say, I’m kind of crushing on Ryder. But even more – I’m crushing on Ryder’s ship, the Shadow! (I really really want one!) This book transforms real world issues into Intergalactic Warfare, where every man is out for himself, and all the characters have their own motivations. If you like Science Fiction, crossed with Matthew Reilly books, crossed with Clive Cussler – then I would definitely recommend this to read. Lots of action, lots of twists and turns – and facing the unexpected, I’m really looking forward to the next episode.

    I posted this review of Leigh K Hunt’s new book Tijuana Nights

    I was intrigued by the title and captivated by the story right from the start. Even though I missed the opening book in this series, I quickly caught on to the characters. Mack… Well I wish I had dreamt her up. The story starts off with a bang (literally) and never lets up. Get lost in the underworld of the drug cartels, murder, mayhem, crosses and double crosses. Our girl Mack keeps her cool (sort of) through it all and in the process finds out just who she really is, and what she is made of. This is a team of misfits and loners who have found one another and manage to click on multiple levels. Chase, the debonair playboy who has met his match in Mack. River, the resourceful Special Forces commando type, who loves peace and tranquil places, and Gabe the computer geek who is just full of surprises. And let’s not forget Mack the reluctant assassin in whose voice this book is narrated. Absolutely will follow this series to the end… I am a fan!
