For those of you wanting to read a sample chapter, please be patient. I can't really figure out how to post a whole chapter online. Perhaps if I can get my computer savvy brother to help me out on this one, you might get lucky. But until then, you can bite your fingernails, and pick your scabs and hangnails, while waiting. Hey, don't look at me that way. I've seen lots of people fishing for scabs, fleas, dandruff globs, slivers, and other unidentified objects a while biding their time. I'm thinking it releases stresses, and gives an endorphin buzz. Seriously.

Wow, I'm sidetracked today. Maybe, it's because I broke down and drank a mountain dew. Not that I'm endorsing it. No. Bad stuff it is. It's very bad for your bones, teeth, and everything else. But it sure does taste nice when you're feeling low on energy juice.

Okay.

And to answer your questions Anonymous commenter, (can I call you Gardenia?) Sorry, it was just a random name that popped into my head. You wanted to know when my book is going to be published.

Soon, I hope. Every authors publishing story is different. Some have to battle their way up to be published, while others send it out and bam, it's on the bookshelves. Well, not quite that fast. But it seems like that. Let's hope my story will be like that. :)

To answer your second question, my very most favorite thing about writing is the fact that I can become anyone I want while writing. I love how I can create an alternate world so fantastic and different from our own, and then sprinkle on some magic dust(or proverbial truths from our own world)that makes the story become alive, believable and real. That's the beauty of fantasy. It's the beauty of fiction. Awe, it makes me smile. I love writing. Love story telling.


Third question. What character is my favorite?

I can't really put a finger on the character that gets to be crowned with all my devotion and most highest esteem. I tried to make each character have their own particular strengths and weaknesses, so I like them all for different reasons. When I started out writing I made a log of what characters I would have, what they would look like, and what they wanted most. I tried to fashion them in a way that many people can identify with them on a personal level.


I hope that answers your questions for now. Feel free to ask some more. Hopefully I can answer them.

Have a great day

Until next time

Steph

Thank you for answering my questions. By the way, I'm a teenaged dude, so "Gardenia" doesn't fit so well with the whole name thing. Could you maybe come up with something else? If the name's good enough, I'll have to use it as my code name. lol.
I look forward to reading your work in print.

Gardenia,

Sorry about the name. Guess that's what you get for writing anonymously. :)

So you want a code name. Hm...I'm going to have to think about that one. How about...The honorable Tabiticus? Or Mr. Rumple. You choose.

Anybody else want a code name? It seems that there are a lot more lurkers on this blog than I thought.

By the way, the code name is only offered for a limited time only.

Sinister snicker.

Cool. I want a code name. I've never really liked my name. It reminds me of a parked car. Very boring.

Just so ya know, i like computers, Books, and gummy worms.

About this blog

Of a few things Andrew was sure. First, his green thumb was totally gone. Second, because it was gone, he was now worse than a drought, or even a plague of locusts. And lastly, he was going to die for it.

Andrew hadn’t really meant to destroy the field of grain in Nookpot, hadn’t meant to risk Ivory’s life by helping her plant flowers at Krot’s gardens. He couldn’t understand why plants now wilted when he touched them. He had become the dreaded, “weedpatch!” The ultimate enemy to his own profession. Or so he thought---until a mishap during his execution places him in the path of the great Orion, where he is told that his organic failings have purpose. Once bestowed with a weapon that increases or diminishes in power according to the number of good people near him at the time, Andrew sets forth to: restore Orion's stolen belt, kill the Shade's evil trees, help a lost prince return to his kingdom, and unite the strength of 100,000 men in order to destroy the power of the darkened star Agrona.

However, the tasks set before Andrew are not easy ones. Encounters with snakemen, Brittlewambers, dragon fireflies, giant centipedes, and mushrooms with moldy attitudes slow his progress, and threaten to take away everything that’s important to him. Time is running out, and Andrew begins to wonder if he will have to face the greatest Leach of light, alone.

ANDREW AND THE QUEST OF ORION’S BELT is an 85,000-word YA fantasy adventure novel, that came about from my stargazing fascinations, combined with my quirky imagination, and adventures of living on a farm, in a little town populated with more sagebrush than people.

If you are a reputable agent, editor, publisher interested in reading my manuscript, please let me know.
