And for KM Weiland fans everywhere, it’s about time. Katie takes time with her work, going over it with such a fine-toothed comb that by the time she sends it to me, there’s nothing more to add, except when I can’t visualize a scene. And trust me, that’s rare.
First thing I noticed was that she changed the spelling of her name. I don’t know if she’s developing a new pseudonym or if she just wants folks to pronounce it right. If it’s the latter, I definitely understand. I’ve been tempted to change my moniker to Linda W. Yezick. Maybe that would help.
The cover is amazing and appropriate for the story. Once you read it, you’ll realize that every single element in the cover is detailed in the novel.
Here are a few great reasons to grab Wayfarer:
- It’s the first in a series that promises to be epic. My bet is that someday, there will be graphic novels, movies, TV series based on this. Yes, it’s that good!
- If you’re a fan of Katie’s books on writing—and she has been recognized worldwide as an authority for several years now—then you’ll want to read her fiction and see her how-tos put into action. You can see the results of her meticulous planning, understand the importance of structure, discover unique characterization, and observe expert dialogue, complete with subtext.
- Aside from all that, it’s just a good book. A great read. A perfect escape from whatever ails you.
Folks, even if you don’t read a lot of fantasy/adventure you’re gonna love this one! Highly recommended!
