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.
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:
