Today I’m participating in the blog tour for a brand-new blog: Tales of the Lonely Sun! This amazing blog is run by four teen girls, and it features posts about books and writing, plus a short story contest! The winners for their contest will be announced on Thursday, so subscribe to their blog to be notified about that (and get the info on how to enter the next contest; they happen every two months).
This post is going to be long, but I promise it’s all interesting. And if you stick around to the end, there’s a giveaway!
About the blog:
We’re four girls who love reading, writing, and most importantly, Jesus. The Lonely Sun emblem symbolizes the Light amidst the Darkness, an illustration of the world and how it’s always been.
We hope to focus on reading and writing books that are full of light opposed to books centered around darkness. The Tales of the Lonely Sun team are spreading the word about good moral books, and how to write them.
We host a seasonal writing contest for writers looking to share their work, and offer book reviews for the book dragons among us.
Tales of the Lonely Sun is run by Carlye, Merie, Jorja, and Mya. I’ll share their bios later. But first, I’m excited to show you our interview! I asked the girls some questions, and one or more of them answered each one.
1 // What first inspired you to start this blog? (Whose idea was it?)
Merie: Funny thing — Carlye and I both had this idea around the same time! I actually contacted Abigail Harder about it first, but then Carlye contacted us, and so we decided to merge the two together. (Abigail doesn’t post, but she judges for the short story contests 🙂 )
2 // Why do you write?
Jorja: I write because there is no feeling quite like reading an amazing book for the first time, and I want to share that feeling with people through my writing. I also want the world to have less books where, if you recommend them to someone, you have to start out by warning them of inappropriate content. I blog for pretty much the same reason, I want to share books that have given me that “this is an amazing book” feeling, and give people some advice that has helped me so that they can write their own.
