Check out the rest of the blogs taking part in the SONGSTONE Blog Tour
for more interviews, reviews, and more!
The debate (and the passionate nature of it) got me thinking about stories as a concept, and how there are so many ways a story can be delivered (verbally, on screen, in a book, as a work of art,...), but whatever the method, whatever the culture, it seemed to me that we CRAVE stories and the telling of stories is so integral to our lives. It occurred to me that stories are stories are stories, no matter how we receive them. I love holding a beautifully designed print book in my hands, and I also love the ease of downloading an e-book.
Because...this was the hardest book I've ever written. There were so many times I had to set the book aside and sort of recover and regroup before I could go on. It was just so emotionally draining. There are some dark themes in SONGSTONE, along with the fun fantastic bits, the lighter whimsical elements, and the humor, which I desperately needed at times as the writer. Otherwise, I don't know that I could have written it, or that anyone would want to read it. ;)
Lena, thank you so much for taking the time to stop by while on tour! I'm fascinated with the fact that the birth of e-books created the idea behind SONGSTONE. It makes me love it even more!
