Why You Should Write When Writing Sucks

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Writing Advice

Computer messages that shouldn’t be annoying any sane person right now– and here I am, having to schedule a restart for 9:15 AM (when I’ll be at work in the morning) so I can keep pecking at my keyboard undisturbed until I finally drag myself to bed when the creatively-exhausted stupor sets in– if I drag myself to bed at all tonight. I love my brain, I love watching this process of expressing ideas and stories unfold, but I do wish it were willing to show some sympathy to MY schedule, which pays the bills. Don’t let anyone tell you more »

New Adventures

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Publishing, Writing

With The Seven Wars  concluded, I am looking forward to focusing on my new project– an adult fantasy series, The Alkesh. I added a new menu tab for the series a while back, which you may have noticed. You will also find the working prologue on the page for the first book. I added some additional illustrations this evening, and plan on being more active with posting updates about my work on this project. I’m very excited about it, and look forward to sharing it with you! The manuscript of the first book, The Rose of Avigdell, is almost done and ready to pass into more »

Below is the transcript of a talk I gave at England Run Library on April 12, 2015. You can download the accompanying slides here. — Hello, my name is Elanor Hope Kindred, otherwise known as E. H. Kindred, author of The Seven Wars series, artist, and graphic designer. When I agreed to do this presentation, I’d originally thought I would give you all the usual shpeel about writing, polishing your work, researching publishing options, marketing yourself… but I’ve talked about that a lot in the past few years. My first book came out in 2012, and since then, I’ve given more »

Through Death Or Through Darkness release!

Hello all! As of this morning, book three of The Seven Wars is now available in trade paperback and Kindle edition! I hope you all enjoy this book as much as I do. It’s rather a turning point in The Somadàrsath work, as it is the story that changes Etheria and our dear characters forever. In doing so, it sets the stage for the epic stories yet to come and lays the foundation for just about every major event in The Seven Wars that is yet to follow. Don’t miss out!

A Big Decision

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Publishing

As many of you know, I have wanted to see my work in print for some time, and now that I have graduated from college, I’ve decided to venture into the world of publishing. I have done a lot of reading and researching, both recently and in years past, and the more I learn about the traditional methods of publishing, the less that road appeals to me. I have faith in my work and believe that there are people in the world who would enjoy it; I am fairly confident that with the right amount of time and concentrated effort, more »

We’re Marching On

(If you’ve not heard the song that I have titled this post with, you should listen to it. It’s very good, as only One Republic can deliver.) Big news here for me, and perhaps at least a partial excuse as to why I have been so lax in posting anything these past few months: I am graduating from college, a B. A. in English, with honors, with a focus on Medieval Literature. It was a tough last semester, but I managed and by this time next week, I will have received my diploma.
