So I’ve only just met Celeste Wilson, but she lives in Washington, so she can’t be to bad! We welcome her to the cause, and as always are eager to help spread the word about other indie authors! Without further ado, I give to you….Celeste Wilson!
Short Bio about me:
Most of my writing experience stems from blogging for a travel company and writing web content for a travel website. I was also responsible for authoring the sales proposals and travel itineraries that were sent out to potential clients. For the last four years I have been a learning coach for a Virtual academy, which I enjoy. I finally decided to do some fun writing about a year ago and started writing my debut novel ‘Children of Odon’ which I self published in late December 2014.
Book Blurb for Children of Odon:
When Emily, an orphaned young woman with amnesia, begins dreaming about a teenage boy, she senses her memory is finally returning. She feels she knows him and call him “Tony.” The dreams awaken strange powers in Emily. As her confusion grows, she faces the unfathomable truth: Tony is real, and they have a special connection.
Mystical powers transport Emily to Tony’s world, a parallel universe of tribal cultures and magical spirit guides. Tony reveals that Emily belongs to an order of mystically talented young people known as the ‘Children of Odon’. She is a spell binder, while other ‘Children of Odon’ are capable of telepathy or controlling natural forces.
Tarantu, a disgraced spirit guide, selfishly wants to destroy the ‘Children of Odon’. As Emily and her new friends battle Tarantu, their combined powers grow. New alliances, possible romances, and more uncovered secrets will help Emily rediscover the girl she thought she’d forgotten.
I have uploaded the first two chapters on my website if you are interested in reading it.
1. What do you do to keep your spirits up through a bad review?
I try to remember that reviews are simply opinions. My writing style or ideas won’t appeal to everyone. I think the best is to hope that a bad review is at the very least construction and that I can learn from it.
2. What has been your greatest inspiration for writing your story?
I drew a lot from my personal experiences on this story and adapted them to the main character’s life.
3. Are there any people you feel need a shout out for supporting you?
My teenage son and I often go for long walks. He is an ardent reader of fantasy novels such as Fablehaven by Brandon Mull. I could bounce many of my whacky ideas off him and he would embellish them. It helped a lot. Especially when I felt like I’d hit a wall in the story line.
4. Has self-publishing taught you any lessons that you feel will help you in life?
Yes, always do your research and seldom believe everything you are told.
and last, What’s your favorite color?
My favorite color? That’s a tough one. I love subtle earthy colors but I also love red. I think a happy medium would be brick red.
