22 Responses to Book Reviews: The Darkwater Liar's Account and Write. Publish. Repeat

  1. “A book that makes me better for having read it.” That is quite an endorsement, Kourtney. Thanks for the review, it sounds like a must read. The cover immediately caught my eye because the child looks like Macaulay Culkin, when he was in the Home Alone movies.

    Write.Publish.Repeat. sounds like a great guide for those venturing into self-publishing.

    Have a great time in Boston!

    • Jill, I am in awe of what K.Lyn did with this book. She’s my first indie author crush. 🙂 It’s a super eye catching cover.

      Write. Publish. Repeat. is a great insider view into what those authors did. But they also sparked a few ideas about things I could do differently to carve my own author path. 🙂

      Thanks! First fantasy convention–kinda nervous. Not sure what to expect. The other panelists have been very friendly. 🙂

    Thanks, Kourtney, for the great review. I appreciate it, my friend… Take care, Kelly

    I loved K. Lyn’s book. I thought her prose was beautiful, and I, too, was impressed by the research. Overall wonderful book.

    • Carrie, I feel awful that it took me so long to read her book. I have never read so few books in one year as in 2013. 🙁 But I am working to make novel reading a daily habit so I can get to more books in 2014. 🙂

      K. Lyn’s book–the prose blew me away. The research and the right use of the research–never bogging the reader down–truly a talented author. Totally agree!

    Yours was one of my favorites so now I’ll have to read one of your favorites! 🙂 I love historical fiction and this one sounds wonderful. Thank you for letting me know about it.

    The first book sounds like something I would really like!

  6. jmmcdowell says:

    The first one sounds like a very powerful book, and the second like one I should definitely check out. 🙂

    Sounds like a very good book I should check out sometime! Your event this weekend sounds cool too, wish I could attend–I’ve always wanted to visit Boston 🙂

    • K. Lyn Wurth is definitely an author to watch. Thanks. I just finished picking out what I’d wear. It’s a fun blouse with flamingoes on it. Boston’s cool–been there a few times. Lots of history and culture to soak up. We’re a bit worried about the possibility of snow, but we’re committed to getting up there. It’s about 2 hours from where I live.

    Both books sound worth reading. I am still trudging through my tbr list from a couple of years ago, sigh, but I’ve been known to move books up the list when they’re endorsed highly enough. 😉

    I can’t believe I am going to miss you when you’re in Boston — only one flipping hour away from me! But I have 3 family birthdays over the course of this week, and I simply can’t get away. Have a great time — I love fortunetelling.

    • I’ve been trying to catch up on my TBR pile this winter. I only read a few books while I was in book production and promo mode (Jan-November). I have so many to get through but I’m working my way through it. 🙂

      Aw too bad. Wow 3 birthdays–that’s a lot! Should be a fun panel and hopefully will introduce Six Train to new readers. 🙂

  9. Mayumi-H says:

    Thanks for bringing both of these books to my attention, Kourtney.

    And, good luck with Arisia! I just read in someone’s Twitter feed that they’ve capped their attendance! 😀

    • Happy to share some great reads! Thrilled to be getting in some reading time again! Thanks. It was pretty awesome. They sold out. But I bought a weekend pass in October so I was fine 🙂

  10. Great reviews Kourtney, your enthusiasm shines through for the first, which makes me want to read it.

  11. That 10-book philosophy is a good one. Thanks for the info here!
