On this past Sunday, New Heart Book Club had a skype session with the authors Wayne Thomas Batson (Door Within Trilogy) and Chris Hopper (White Lion Chronicles). I'd post a picture of the session, but then there's a whole legality issue about posting people's pics on the Internet without their permission, blah blah blah.... Anyway, it was a great time to ask published authors all about their books and get some advice. Most of you probably already know this, but they advised me as a writer to never lose my passion or skill by continually writing and reading good books. I guess this blog is a good way for me to keep writing.
Wayne Thomas Batson & Chris Hopper are two of the funniest guys I've ever met and their easygoing personalities can be seen in their writing. My favorite part of the whole chat session was when Chris hinted that the book club leaders were like the lords of Berinfell. Grace, my dad keeps saying how you almost fainted when you realized it :) Pretty awesome. By the way, to those of you who were in love with Jet from the Berinfell series, I'm so sorry that he's going to be dead for sure in the third book. I know the authors didn't say it word for word, but it seemed implied to me. *Sigh* I'm glad I didn't pick him as a book crush.
Thanks to Jacques for setting up the technical aspect, and thanks to the rest of the book club for being so respectful. You guys made it all the more great!
