  2. Sounds fascinating. Adding it to my Goodreads, pronto. Thank you, Kourtney for inviting this brilliant author to present her story here! K.Lyn, as an avid history buff I look forward to reading your work!

    • Gwen, I’m so proud to count K. Lyn among my friends. She is such a talented writer and I feel like I grew as a person from reading her book. Can’t wait to hear what you think of it!

  4. I recently read about K. Lyn’s book on another blog; the book sounds intriguing. I love first person, so you’ve hooked me Kourtney.
    The young boy on the cover reminds me of a young Macaulay Culkin.

  5. It sounds great! And she has such a contageous smile, I feel drawn to keep looking at her photo and smiling 🙂 (I hope that doesn’t sound weird! Hehe).

    • Vanessa, it’s a great great read. I love K. Lyn’s smile too. She’s just as sweet on email as she looks too. Not weird at all. Some people just draw you in because they smile with their whole face not just their lips. 🙂

    I really enjoyed “The Darkwater Liar’s Account.” A strong story weaved with impeccable research and beautiful prose, something all writers aspire to. I look forward to Wurth’s next book!

    I have not read this book, but I think it was your review which compelled me to add it to my TBR list a few months ago. I like the background to this book, knowing how her grandmother unwittingly played a part in the making of this novel. Thanks for a great interview.

    • I’m so glad you added it to your TBR pile. It’s truly a fantastic book. All the backstory to it’s creation really enhanced the book for me. I ordered a signed copy from K. Lyn so I could add it to collection. 🙂

    This sounds like a stellar book, and I’m pleased to see another indie writer aiming for top quality. This is likely the route I will take, and books like this reaffirm my belief that the “new playing field” sets the quality bar as high as in the traditional outlets.

    Thanks, Kourtney, for the great interview experience and your ongoing friendship. And thanks to you who comment here…I appreciate your interest and support!

    Hello Kourt;

    A very thorough first approach to K LYN Wurth ´s book.

    It sounds truly captivating and an exponent of engaged literature, judging for certain topics.

    Cheers Aquileana 😉

  12. You’ve done it again Kourtney, another book I’ve had to download based on this intriguing interview – my Kindle is starting to groan with all those books to be read 🙂

    • Andrea, it’s worth the groan. 🙂 I try to spotlight books I’ve loved. K. Lyn’s blew me away. She’s someone I will read anything she writes because she’s that good. Hope you enjoy it!

  13. Pete Denton says:

    Sounds like an interesting book. I’ll check it out 🙂

  14. It does sound like a powerful read. I’m not sure if I’m strong enough to get through the abuse stuff but it is still good to know about the book.

    • I try to read widely and learn from other writers. I guess I have the comfort of a photographer behind a camera lens. I’m always dissecting what is working and why it’s working as I read and it lets me have more emotional distance.

What do you think?
