Joyce Knock: I have been invited by Courtney Cowder, a feature reporter at the Des Moines Register, to share my “growing up in Iowa experience ” at the Iowa State Fair. Several Iowans will be sharing their stories at the Mid American building on August 20th.

Friend’s Review of Lightning Crest

Posted on Updated on

My friend’s review of Jordyn Meryl’s novel ‘The Lightning Crest’ .

Connie Sharpnack Capehart
Just finished reading an awesome book from a local author.
Her name is Jordyn Meryl and the name of the book is
The Lightning Crest. Iam not sci fi fan but really enjoyed reading this.
It’s a sci-fi romance. It has love, science fiction and a bit of spiritual guidance. It’s about a woman saving our children from evil, hiding the children and the Cartel who wants to turn the children into listless humans and how she meets a cartel soldier and how they save families with love a spiritual guidance.

I believe you can find Jordyn on Facebook or get her book from Amazon and places in Des Moines. I have read 3 of her books she has wrote and each one in the own way will make you laugh, cry and beg for more of this author.

Edits, Edits, and More Edits

Posted on

HealerofSurflex2

I am starting the edit from my second editor on Healer of Surflex. Each of the new editor has found corrections needed. I am so tired of putting in commas and changing words from present tense to past and vice-a-versa. LOL. It really pays to check out the credentials of people who say they are editor and can do your edits. Healer of Surflex is a prime example of what I am talking about.

My hay-wired brain would read the story the way I wanted to say and not the way I wrote it down. So I had it edited, then published it. Now I have to go back and re-do it because of the poor editing. I have only myself to blame.

With the help of Lynn Daugherty and Lynda Knapp Healer of Surflex should be polished to near perfection.
