December Vlog

Hello, guys! Ready for another Vlog? This one is pretty short because I didn’t have questions and I was in a hurry. Still, you should enjoy it. πŸ˜‰

And, like normal, feel free to ask any questions you want below so I can answer them in my next Vlog. Or maybe the one after, since the next one will be about Shadows of the Hersweald. We’ll see. *grins*

You’re right. It’s Wee-land. XD

You didn’t say anything about questions but I have one… what is the most ‘writerly’ thing you’ve ever done in public? And what were people’s reactions… XD

If I were to ever do a vlog, there would also be screaming in the background. “That’s just my sister… I think she’s okay.” <– No idea how many times I've said things like that.

πŸ˜€ I try to get everyone to be quiet, but there is only so much one can do.

Great vlog Hope.

Random question: Who owns the wooden horses (I think they are wooden) in the back ground? I really like it. πŸ™‚

That is Joy’s. My great grandmother knows a man who carved it. I love it too. πŸ™‚

Great vlog! Thanks for answering my question! So let’s see questions for your next vlog…Oh I know!
1) What made you want to write? I know this is a popular question (and it may have been already asked)
2) If you had to choose where between a sword or ax which would you choose?
3) How do you outline books?

See ya next time!

Thanks for the questions. πŸ™‚ I’ll answer them in January…or February. πŸ˜€

I guess I’ll wait on my review. I was going to do Rose of Prophecy now that I’ve read it, but since you are revising it, I’ll wait for Rose of the Oath (especially since it sounds like you’re going to address the exact troublespots I was concerned about–a Writerlea book review is throrough, if anything, and it sounds like your new book will make a better showing under the scrutiny of the standard rubric…but now I have to wait.) Oh well! I’ll just look forward to this summer all the more.

Yes, the new novella will fit as part of the series much better with backstory and it isn’t as close as to the original fairy tale as Rose of Prophecy. I’m very much looking forward to getting it published too. πŸ˜€

I hope you didn’t move too far from the fairy tale. I really liked how you took he original and made it longer and more interesting, with the father only able to bring back the one rose, the other sister’s requests, etc. That was one of the best parts, I thought. (But I’m sure however you change it, it’ll be great.)

It is changed, but it is clearly recognizable as a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. It’s further from the original than Rose of Prophecy, but closer than Song of the Sword or Shadows of the Hersweald.
