About

Welcome to my writing blog, Bethany Faith Writes!

My name is Bethany Faith and I am a fourteen year old, homeschooled, Fantasy writer. I spend my free-time either writing or playing some sort of instrument and I’m very passionate about my love of words. 

My Writing:

I started writing around the same time I learned to read (when I was about four years old), and I’ll admit that my writing was terrible then, haha. But I enjoyed it nonetheless and soon I started writing journals, books, and full stories. Each time getting a bit better. 

When I was about ten years old, I finally got to read The Chronicles of Narnia and thus my love for Fantasy was born. This got me started on plotting my first Fantasy book  – which I never did finish… – and many other books soon followed.

When I was working on my short novella, Saving Souls, I discovered a Christian, Fantasy forum called Holy Worlds and I was instantly involved in this new resource I have found to writing. So, with the help of the forum, my parents, and God, I managed to finish Saving Souls.

Once I had finished with my first, full, Fantasy book – which I call my baby book – I started work on a new book. At the time, I called it “Beyond The Mountains”, but once I finished writing it, I appropriately dubbed the book “What Lies In The Dark”

After several revisions and quite a bit of work, I managed to self-published  What Lies In The Dark through a service run by Amazon called CreateSpace, and that was officially the first book I’ve published. It was officially released in June of 2011.

Currently, I am working on a novel named Exceeding Flesh & Blood which I intend to publish sometime in the Spring of 2012, and I am formatting the final draft of What Lurks In The Forest, the sequel to my first published book and the second one in a series of five. Hopefully, it will be released by or before January of 2012.

If you want to keep updated on the books I’ve published so far, you can go to my “Published Books” page and keep track of me. Hopefully there will be some new additions soon!

What This Blog Is About:

When I originally started this blog my intention was to write stories and publish them on here, but I’ve decided to widen the possibilities of what I can write for now. So I intend to soon start posting book and movie reviews and maybe even some writing tips – depending on what I can think of for writing tips, of course.

This also means that I’m going to start a steady posting schedule. I aim to post something once a week, probably on Saturday, so that my blog remains active…even when I’m not entirely paying attention to it. 

Hopefully this will mean that you will be able to find something I write to suit you on my blog, whether it be a story, advice article, of other bit of writing that I post. 

And if you like my blog, be sure to look into the other websites that you can find me active and posting on:

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy reading more of my posts. If you have any suggestions or comments feel free to post them in the comments section of my posts or send me an email, using the“Contact Me” page. Thank you again!

    Thank you for the encouragement. I’m glad you like my blog. 😀

    And no, I don’t know the Harrises. At least, not personally, I’ve merely heard about them and been on the Rebelution forum a bit.

    Hello Bethany,

    Your father came by my bookstore in Okinawa Japan and asked me to order your books. I did and they have been selling very well. If you are coming to Okinawa I am interested in having a book signing with you. Are you interested? You can also look me up on Facebook or my home email markstopani@wave.plala.or.jp. Ilook forward to your response.

    Sincerely,

    Mark Stopani
