Gosh, this is hard because I’m torn between two: 1) Write. It may sound simple, but you’ll never get anything written if you don’t sit down and write sometimes. That’s also the best way to hone your craft is to just sit down and start writing. Make it a habit to write at least once everyday and then you’ll be surprised at how much you accomplish. 2) This is the most important one for my life, but write for God and let Him be your inspiration. I wouldn’t have a talent or passion for writing without Him and none of my books would be written without Him either.
I’m not sure why it’s so hard to sit down and write, but it is!
Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers:
You may feel like giving up or like your dreams are too far away to achieve, or that you can’t write that story, or finish anything you start, or that no one will ever read or like your work, or that you’ll never be published but never give up! Keep trying, keep writing, keep submitting, no matter how hard it gets. You’ll get there someday; just be patient!
Beroan is a shapeshifter, part of the dragon clan. His clan’s Alpha, Sirath, wants to watch the world burn.
For ten long years Sirath has attacked villages, killing thousands of humans and burning towns to the ground. Beroan has had enough, but his resistance will only end in suffering.
Nsi is a human living in a small village with her grandmother and cousin. Her ignorance about the existence of shifters won’t protect her for long. Her family was killed in a dragon attack when she was younger, and now dragons have come again. Now she will stop at nothing until the dragon shifters are stopped, to save humans from suffering the same fate as her family.
Together, Nsi and Beroan will risk everything to save humanity from Sirath.
Darkness is spreading through the galaxy, Corrupting one world after another, and now it has come for theirs. Sirath already belongs to the Corruption of darkness.
He will not stop until he burns down the world and leaves it covered in fire and ash.
Joanna White earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing for Entertainment at Full Sail University. The Valiant series is her first published work, which first started off being updated on a website called Wattpad. She lives in the countryside of Missouri with her husband, where she continues to work on her other upcoming books. Writing has been a passion since she was ten, when she wrote her first book. Ever since then, writing has become her life outside of her family, God, and being a nerd.
