Well, hello there! Welcome to this blog which is dedicated to the novel Strongholds. I was thinking about what we can do here, and it occurred to me this would be a perfect place for those who have read the book and want to talk about some of the things you’ve read.
In fact, this is a great place for you to ask questions of me, the author. Of course, there are some questions I may not answer. I generally tell people when I write a novel, I work extremely hard to make the reader’s experience one that is fun, engaging, and enjoyable among other things. I don’t like too much information on the back of my novels because sometimes it gives away something that may ruin the read for the reader. I want you to enjoy.
So, if you want to comment on your read of Strongholds, feel free to do so here. When I’ve been in the presence of book clubs and others discussing this book (throwing in things from Blessed Trinity and even some of my previous books), I usually ask which character was a favorite (even the villains need to be appreciated for their role so I don’t have a problem when people appreciate some of the characters who have serious flaws).
Which character(s) did you enjoy? Which character got on your nerves? How did Strongholds affect you? What message did you take away after you finished reading the book?
Now, you know there was book 1, Blessed Trinity, (if you haven’t read it yet, then make sure you pick it up and give it a read). And September 30, 2008, you’ll get the opportunity to read book 3. It’s called If Memory Serves, and I want you to get ready for a heart-gripping ride!
