Book Boost Blogger of the Year Nominee: Lynda K. Scott

Enter to win the 2010 Book Boost Prize Bundle & meet our next Blogger of the Year Award Nominee!

We are back with the last of our carefully selected FIVE guest bloggers from 2010 nominated for the First Annual Book Boost Blogger of the Year Award!

The final nominee is fantasy & futuristic fiction author Lynda K. Scott who joins us today to discuss her nominated book Heartstone.

Recently, I had the honor of reading this book from Lynda and here's my take on it...

Lynda Scott is the master of creating a world that will simultaneously thrill you and captivate your heart. This epic science fiction, fantasy is full of action and adventure with a healthy dose of passion and romance thrown in...making it sure to please all audiences.

The story is written like a legend of ancient times yet will catapult you into a fantasy fiction realm that hurls the reader through space and time page after page.

Both hero and heroine are searching for the Heartstone but they find so much more than that. Over-all, I highly enjoyed this book and I enthusiastically recommend it to you. **Please note: This review was not written under the mischievous mind control of the evil Gawan.**


Here’s more about Heartstone:

Eric d'Ebrur is out of time. He must find the legendary Heartstone and fulfill the ancient Gar'Ja bond he shares with the Stonebearer.

But when he finds her, he discovers that love can be more dangerous than the Gawan threat. Eric can defeat the mind-controlling Gawan but will it cost him the woman he loves?

After terrifying episodes of hypersensitivity, Keriam Norton thinks she's losing her mind. When handsome shapeshifter Eric d'Ebrur saves her from the monstrous Gawan, she's sure of it. But insane or not, she'll find the Heartstone and, if she's lucky, a love to last a lifetime.

Recently, I chatted with Lynda and here's what she had to say...

TBB: What was the most difficult aspect of this book (the creation, writing, achieving publication, sales/promotion, etc…)?

LS: The most difficult aspect was achieving publication. The market is so tight and the economy so poor that publishers are often reluctant to spend any time on a project they aren’t sure will make a profit for them. I’m delighted that they thought highly enough of Heartstone that they offered me a contract for it.

TBB: Is there a message in your book that you hope readers will hear?

LS: Love is the source of strength.

TBB: How long did it take you to write this book?

LS: It took nearly two years to finish Heartstone.

TBB: Give me one quote (from yourself) about being a writer.

LS: "Writing is done little by little…as the cat eats the fish."

TBB: Who, in your life, is your biggest source of inspiration and why?

LS: My alien kitten, Wookie, says she is and I choose not to argue with her.

TBB: What is your favorite breakfast food?

LS: Sausage gravy with biscuits (yes, I’m a country girl).

TBB: Name of the first boy you ever kissed.

LS: Johnny.

TBB: If someone wrote a biography about you, what should the title be?

LS: Tales from Out There

TBB: Thanks for joining us at the Book Boost, Lynda and best of luck with this nomination and your future writing!

My best,
Kerri Nelson
Owner, The Book Boost
