      Some of these authors I read before I even started DEATH’S ISLAND and others I discovered after I finished my manuscript. I would have to say that it was J.R.R. Tolkien’s and J.K. Rowling’s novels that inspired me to become an author.
      You probably can see some influences from Robert Louis Stevenson’s TREASURE ISLAND and J.R.R. Tolkien’s LORD OF THE RINGS, but DEATH’S ISLAND really takes a life of it’s own. And I didn’t even know about Poe’s poem THE RAVEN until after my first beta reader commented on Death’s mortal form.

    I’m always a little bummed when I lose followers but make every effort to
    turn every lost follower into a learning experience so I can improve my
    performance.

    On the flip side, I only stop following people when they give me a reason to
    such as being totally off message or being too controversial in an negative,
    over-the-top way.

    Happy Book Blogger Hop Friday!
