Blogging about Wayfarer's Journal

Well, here I am! This is my first review, and I hope it is up to the standards that it needs to be!
Wayfarer's Journal was quite an interesting surprise! At first I found it a bit odd to navigate, but I got the hang of it. I tried all the links under the stories. Two of them worked, and I did read the two that I could access. Only one of the two links that worked made me really wish I could read the rest of that author's work!
"The Soulless" by Donna Sundblad quite interesting. She is tackling a topic that is often debated, and doesn't seem to have any really solid answers for most people. She is working with the aspect of what if you believed that humans who had been cloned were with out souls? What if they were or are with out the reach of God's Salvation? What if you found out you were the product of such a creation?! How would you know if you had a soul, or would you decide that you were born with out just because you had been cloned? I would really like to read more of "The Soulless".
The web site over all is interesting! Several stories are in the archives, and some are currently posted to be read more easily. I really did enjoy the Poetry, and thought it was a nice touch to the site. I didn't get to interview the author of this site, but I think that Terri Main has had a wonderful idea to bring together a place for more Christian Science Fiction, and a place for writers starting up in Christian Science Fiction to be found and seen. I really liked that!
I am a *HUGE* Science Fiction fan, as is my husband, and most of my family. Science Fiction gives up a place to ask the questions that aren't asked as easily in other areas. It provides a fantastic platform for so very many things, and just as I *loved* CS Lewis's Space Trilogy, I really enjoyed this web site. Thank you to Terri Main for creating it, and I will be sure to send some of my friends over to check out the Wayfarer's Journal!
Be Blessed!

Just some thoughts...

Hello Everyone!

Well, I still feel VERY new to Blogging! I just want to be able to do just what I am suppose to do for the book Tours, and do it well. I seem to get a little lost on all the how to-s! But once I get it figured out, I might Blog it so it is easier for someone else. ;)

I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. My hubby brought home a germ, he was sick. I caught it! LOL! Even so, my case hasn't been as bad as his. Seems that the generic version of "Airborne" works pretty well with my system, that and LOTS of prayer!

I guess this is a good place to say that I want to learn lots about how these book reviews work. I have a sort of "vested" interest in this for many reasons. One is that I have written and been published before. The only book so far though is self published, and about Seahorses.
However, I have been working on a Novel. I hope it gets to see the "light of day" somewhere when I am done. I think it is important! Even so it gives me even GREATER admiration for my favorite Authors, and all those working to be successful writers. That is about all for now!

Be Blessed!
