Q: When will this be on Audio book?
A: SOON! We are working on production now. (UPDATE: Now Available!)
Q: Is this a good book for kids?
A: I would say The Watchers Series is equivalent to the Harry Potter Series as far as intensity and danger. The first book is pretty simple and fun, but they get more intense as you go along. ALL MY BOOKS ARE CLEAN (no sex or swearing.) I figured that if I won't let my kids read it then I won't write it for other people's kids.
Q: What are" Watchers?" Is it something to do with Theology?
A: Watchers are mentioned in the Book of Enoch, but The Watchers book is more fantastical (superhero) in nature.
See Wiki for more info http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watcher_(angel)
The Watchers is a fairytale. People who want to find religious undertones will find that this book is comparable to the fantasy works of C. S. Lewis. The book is more about Good vs. Evil, Self Discovery, and Hope during dark times.
See this review excerpt from Elizabeth West:
“Eden is a Mormon [Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints] writer, and the theological research she draws on in her writing supports the story beautifully without being intrusive. Not being Mormon myself, I don’t know a lot of it, but the whole Watchers thing (see the Books of Enoch) doesn't come across as preachy or even particularly religious.” Elizabeth West, Book Reviewer

Q: What advice do you have for authors wanting to get published?
1. Don't publish the first thing you write.
Think of your first book as practice or a prototype book. Your writing skills will change and improve as your practice and learn new techniques. Develop your writing, edit and take the time to create something truly professional before you put it out there for the world to see.
2. Learn to be a business minded.
Whether you go through a publisher or self-publish, learn to be a smart business person. Learn about contracts, learn how and what to invest in, and learn to advertise and market.
3. Join a critique group.
Not only can they help you hone your skills, but they can offer advice on the literary business.
4. Support other authors.
My book manager, Laura Watkins, says, "Books are a consumable." With this in mind, don't view other authors as competition, but a allies. For more on this, see her article here: http://lauralynnwatkins.weebly.com/home/turning-rivalry-into-sales
5. Watch out for people and publishers looking to take advantage of authors who are desperate to get published.
Q: What are your thoughts on the publishing industry?
A: Everyone must find their own way in the publishing world. There is no one and only right way to publish.
