  9. @ Gillian Adams, Great question, designing Annabeth's Cover was a piece of work, being a graphic artist I really wanted to do it myself but, being unable to find stock and other pictures that suited my desire for the story, I turned to art (which I am very very bad at, and drew a sketch of what I wished could be Annabeth's cover.) I started praying and searching for an artist that could make that dream come true, and I found my answer in the most unexpected way. I reconnected over facebook with a friend who I had lost contact with years ago, we started chatting - and I found that her husband was an artist. Louie Roybal, helped design and painted Annabeth's Cover.

    @ Mary Ruth Pursselley, Thanks for stopping by!

    @ Hayden, Hope you get a chance to read it someday, good luck in the drawing. :D

    @ Essie DeWayne, Yes, I listen to music as a general rule when I write, it helps drown out this worlds background noise. For Annabeth's War I listened to a lot of character's themes songs (Annabeth's was Hero by Heather Dale if you are interested). But I often rely on classical, movie tracks, and Josh Groban for the rest of my writing.

    @ Writer4Christ, Thanks!

    @ Brian McBride, Yes I certainly do. My personal blog is:

    @ Lauren, Self-publishing was a very long journey for me. I really wanted to be traditionally published, however along my journey the more I learned about the publishing world the less excited I got, and was burdened to self-publish, it was a direction encouraged by my father and confirmed by my Heavenly Father. (if this isn't the answer you are looking for let me know and I'll try to answer more in detail)

    @ Leah Good, Perfect timing :D I hope you enjoy it when you get the chance.

    @ Elizabeth L. W. From sitting down to write, to publication Annabeth's War took about 21 months, to write the story around a month. Annabeth's War was one of those stories that had sat brewing and recreating itself in the back of my mind for years, so when it happened, it really bloomed, and the characters were so much fun to write with.

    @ Annie Hawthorne, I hope you get a chance to read it someday.

  11. 1# I left a comment. I don't know if its suppose to be a question or not.
    2# I follow Safirewriter
    3# I followed Homeschool Authors
    4# I also have liked 'Jessica Greyson' on facebook.
    The wording of 'Easy Entry' is a little confusing and I can only assume it means to become a fan an you are entered into the giveaway.

    God Bless,
    Vellvin.
