    • Hi Christopher, I am a blind author with a YA adventure myster with excursions into Sci Fi and fantasy called The Heart of Applebutter Hill. I'm writing to ask if you would kindly vote for my book cover in the book cover comp? I've made it into Round 3. I am using this opportunity to raise awareness about blindness, accessibility, guide dogs and other disabilities. This novel is educator-recommended for its diversity, anti-bullying and inclusion themes. I would appreciate your help! :)

      • Hello Donna, thank you for reaching out to me. I have voted for your book cover as you have kindly requested. I am glad that you appreciate my help and I am happy that I was able to help. If I may, I kindly wish one author to another that whenever you got the time to read and review my book. I am fairly new and my book Dark Days Outbreak is my first book of a series and I am getting the second book edited and am currently working on the third. My novel series is more than just people fighting zombies, I try to show the what it means to be human and to help others in dire times. It would mean so much to me if you could review and mention to any of your friends if they would be interested it. Thank you so much for your time and patience.

      • Yes I have experienced "Writer's Block." I believe almost every writer eventually comes across a time and place where they get stuck. What I do is spend a little time away to let my brain cool down, then I sort out various different ideas of the possibilities of what could happen in that story. I choose which one is best and makes the most sense or would be a good plot twist. I recommend writing an outline, so that you know what you want to happen then as you write the story you have time to think of how you want to cross that bridge when you come to it.

    • Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?

      • My advice to aspiring writers would be to first figure out what kind of story you want to
        write and then write it down so you don’t forget or lose the details, especially ideas for
        that special story, because we do forget – life is busy and we move on to jobs and careers
        and the creative pieces in us are not fostered, encouraged or given time to be explored.
        Another important element is how you decide to tell the story. You can have the greatest
        story in the history of literature history but it won’t resonate if it’s not told right. There
        are books out there that have great plot but couldn’t get readership because of how the
        story was written. I tend to believe that if it’s too hard to make heads or tails out of a
        story, too hard to follow and understand, it won’t draw in or hold readers attention or
        interest. So, my advice is keep it crisp – not too easy, but not overly complex.

      • I started writing when I was nineteen back in 2012. At that time I wasn’t spending as much time with video games. I had several ideas in my head and I felt that if I didn’t get them on paper I’d simply lose or forget them – I suspect I felt the need to tell some of those stories. One day I went to Barnes and Noble and I started looking at books that caught my interest. I would say Neal Shusterman motivated me to write.
