  • Can you give us a basic summary of the The Linking Stones: A New Beginning?

Synopsis: The Linking Stones: A New Beginning

 

John, from Scotland and Tabitha, a Cherokee Indian princess in America, are bound together by God’s plan for their lives. Each find a stone in a cave where they live, each must decipher it’s meaning, and then set out to search for the other. Overwhelmed with dreams of insight the silhouetted figure of the other haunts their soul; they must go the distant and leave all they have ever known behind to find the reason for these predictive dreams. Once they have left their homelands they encounter an evil situation that is out to stop the chosen ones from uniting. The King of Hell, Abaddon sends out his wicked slaves, Vinayakas, The Blood Creature, and many others to pilfer the stones from them. The two stones hold many mysterious secrets that hold the key to the faith of humankind. Tabitha and John do not know the significance of the stones, they hold the prosperity of life, which in time they come to discover. Through peril and dangerous situations they face, they fight a battle that must be won; the battle between Good and Evil. Their fate has been predestined before birth, now they must fulfill their destiny.

  •   How long did it take you to write from start to finish?

It took me one year and a half to write this book. It is the first in a triology.

  • Did you do any research while writing? If so, what kind?

Yes, I researched The Scottish language, their history. I also researched information on the Native Cherokee Language. I researched the demonic names and their powers, along with mythology. It was an experiance of a life time, but I needed to know details that my book needed to make it come alive.

  • Your first book was The Burning Bush, a book of poetry. Was it hard to make the transition between poetry to prose?

Not really, I have always wanted to write a novel. I love poetry, but my best writting is in a story form. It was a lot of fun and I plan on writting many more. Including the next two books to this series. The Linking Stones.

  • Are there any authors or books who inspired you as a writer?

Yes, of course the Holy Bible, Author God... The most inspiration of my writing. Then there is Karen Michelle Nutt, the author of, Lost in the Mist of Time. I also like Stephenie Meyers' Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse. Wonderful writers. Love them all.

  • Do you keep a strict writing schedule?

I normally work from Monday-Fridays 9 to 12. Then if the inspiration hits me I will write. It depends on the plauge called "Writer's Block." If is does not weigh me down I can pretty much write anytime. I have been plauged with writer's block a few times; my children and my wonderful husband always seem to give me my inspiration back.

  • Who is your target audience?

Well, for this book, The Linking Stones: A New Beginning and the other two I will be writing in the future are for teens and up. I am working on a children's novel called Shadow Walkers. But at the moment I am targeting the young adults and adults at this moment.

  • What are some of your favorite books?

Karen Michelle Nutt, Lost in the Mist of Time.

Stephenie Meyers, Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse

God "THE HOLY BIBLE" and so many others, IT would take years to tell of all the authors I love.

  • What would you like your readers to know about you?

I am a mother of three beautiful children, I am a wife to a wonderful husband, I am a Christian that believe whole heartedly in my faith, I may not be as good as I want to be, but I am better than what I once was, and with grace and mercy I will grow better and better within the time I live. To know me more check out my site and read my Journal at http://www.tabitha-robin.com

  • What are you working on now?

Right now I am publishing The Linking Stones by self-publishing methods. I have sent out transcripts and mauscripts to many publishing companies. I am trying to get it published by a big named company. After I finish this I think I will work on Shadow Walkers, the children's novel for the time being and then work on the sequel to The Linking Stones. I have 7 chapters done already on Shadow Walkers. It won't be too long and it will be finished.

  • Any tips for aspiring writers?

Yes, I have many resourses on my page for writers, If you go to the Resourse link on my page you will find wonderful sites that will help upcoming authors get started.

Also never give up on your dreams for only you can make them come true.
