I would like to give a shout-out to two talented authors
Jacci Turner & Cheryllynn Dyess
Broadening my literary pallet beyond fantasy and sci-fi,
here are two wonderful authors,
both of whom write in multiple genres.
Take a look at their most recent novels.
I first meet these authors through social media. I follow them on Twitter and like them on Facebook. Jacci and I have been part of High Sierra Writers group as well. I would like to share a little about these two authors and their novels.
For her entire life, Amy considered her evangelical Christian upbringing the foundation of her life and beliefs. But when she stands up for her gay best friend, Amy is ostracized and banished from the church she loves–resulting in a crisis of the spirit that causes her to doubt her conservative upbringing as she enters her thirties. Seeing Amy’s pain, a caring friend raises the money to send her on a week-long retreat for contemplative activism, hoping that a few days of quiet reflection will help her rekindle her faith.
At the retreat, Amy meets two women her age–teachers who introduce her to new types of prayer–as well as Celeste, a seasoned mentor who takes Amy under her wing and gently shows her new ways to practice her faith. In the course of just a few days, Amy finds an inspiring and more meaningful view of God–and a new beginning full of hope, compassion, and healing.
About Calastan, The Jein’s Journey Series Book 1… Each person has a distinct trait that’s either held in reserve or pursued without inhibitions. For reasons that vary, the latter may seem an egotistic act. However, not for Jein. Taking a path other than the one she believes is right is like betraying her own soul. This book features a young girl who deals with her individuality in admirably different ways. It tells a story of how she accomplishes exceptional feats in a world that draws an unyielding line between men and women. Follow Jein Kyominias, a girl who does not entertain the established roles other females of the upper class take in her land. Her rearing in a matriarchal society has certain paths laid out. She has chosen to be an elite hunter instead of a mere matron. She is unique in her fondness for activities that are specifically bequeathed for men. She decides she will be different—strong and different that is.
So, what’s next? Cheryllynn is currently working on three books and has one in the editing stages. She is hoping to start a clean romance novella series by the end of 2017 and by March of 2018 to have book 4 in the Jein’s Journey Series ready.
